  1. Tunable Stiffness Thorax/Mechanism for Flapping Wing MAV

    SBC: NOVA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: A12017

    This proposed study intends to develop a model and prototype of a flapping winged vehicle through the incorporation of elastic components. This will allow the manufacture of such vehicles with greatly enhanced flight duration and agility. Work will include the design, prototyping, and testing of micro air vehicle wing flapping mechanisms with tunable elastic components for increasing throughput po ...

  2. Advanced Order Linearizer for Satellite Communications

    SBC: LINEARIZER TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A12041

    Linearizer Technology Inc. produces analog predistortion linearizers. Integrated with a power amplifier (PA) and used for SATCOM applications they approach the performance of an ideal amplifier. Limitations of LTIs linearizers are the need for meticulous tuning to achieve the desired characteristics over frequency, and the need for adjustment to match a PAs specific characteristics. LTI has d ...

  3. Fiber Optic Amplifier Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: SUB-MICRON ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: For this SBIR topic, we have proposed a novel high-power optical fiber pump combiner design that addresses the specific challenges associated with counter-pumping large-mode-area (LMA) double-clad gain fibers. Based on modeling and design optimization, we will fabricate kilowatt capable power combiner prototypes for pump coupling to double-clad Yb-doped polarization-maintaining (PM) fi ...

  4. Satellite Optical Backplane

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF103097

    ABSTRACT: there is a clear need for a radically new interconnect architecture that minimizes the routing delay through the backplane to enable increased performance, reduced costs, and faster time to market. To this end, we propose the development of a space compatible optically interconnected backplane with reconfigurable routing fabric. By removing the electrical interconnections between logi ...

  5. Development of line-narrowed diode pumps sources for DPAL systems

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: MDA11007

    Megawatt class laser systems using Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPAL) could be possible because of their extremely low quantum defect which minimizes thermal loading and, like other gas lasers, the gain medium can be flowed to reduce thermal management requirements. One key to producing efficient systems is matching the absorption linewidth of the gain media to the emission bandwidth of the diodes. ...

  7. Novel Standoff Detection of Material Damage Precursors for Structural Health Monitoring and Prediction

    SBC: PNTS INCORPORATED            Topic: A13016

    Because of the overwhelming migration to composites, particularly exotic thermoset materials from the bismaleimide (BMI) family, the PNTS team is focusing its work on this topic on composite structures. The team's high level approach will be to demonstrate an innovative and practical design using dielectric spectroscopy at millimeter wave through terahertz frequencies that will provide compos ...

  8. Remote Deployment of Explosive Detection Material

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: A12007

    MSI successfully demonstrated modification of its existing extended range 40mm non-lethal munition to carry and deploy a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) payload intended to detect and confirm explosives at 100m stand-off. Based on analysis and air-gun testing, as well as legacy performance of MSIs munition, key characteristics of the explosive detection munition include over 25 square inch co ...

  9. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT: In this SBIR effort we will develop a packaging process and demonstrate (Phase I) a prototype of high power Photodiode (PD) that has a normal incident, pigtailed fiber input and a coaxial RF output that operates from DC to>60GHz. We will apply and extend (Phase II) the aforementioned packaging process to single PD, balanced PD and array of PDs that work from DC through entire W-band. De ...

  10. Low cost Diplexer for High performance phased array antenna

    SBC: Princeton Microwave Technology Inc            Topic: AF131148

    ABSTRACT: Princeton Microwave Technology [PmT] is proposing the development of compact microstrip based dual mode resonators for the the design of the low cost diplexers for the GDPAA program.Miniature dual mode resonator based diplexers, in which the main feature and advantage lies in the fact that each of the dual mode resonators can be used as a doubly resonant circuit and therefore requires h ...
