  1. Cost Effective, Scalable, High Power, Mid-IR Optically (Laser) Pumped Molecular Laser Source

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force and other branches of the armed forces require compact and cost-effective, high power (10s of Watts) sources of mid-infrared radiation at wavelengths within atmospheric transmission bands. Thermal issues in solid-state lasers have so farlimited the performance of these devices at long wavelengths. By contrast gas lasers can provide power scalability, however these devices are typica ...

  2. Fiber-based, high peak power mid-infrared source

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF071005

    Tactical laser sources delivering high peak power (from multi-MW to TW) in agile optical pulse trains at high pulse repetition frequency (PRF) in the 3.5-4 µm wavelength region are of interest for several military applications including proactive infrared countermeasures (PIRCM), non-lethal munitions, and remote sensing of battlefield threats. To meet the needs for future tactical lasers, Aculig ...

  3. High-Power 2 Micron Fiber Lasers

    SBC: ADVALUE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF071137

    Thulium doped fiber laser near 2 micron is of great interest because of the potential possibility of combining high efficiency, high output power, and retina safety together. This proposal is for the development of new Tm-doped glass fiber for efficient high power 2ƒnmicron fiber laser capable of generating an output power of up to thousands watts. The doping concentration of the proposed glass f ...

  5. Automated Analysis of Datalink Transmissions (AADT)

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: AF06317

    The focus of the Phase II of this SBIR topic is to build a prototype of an automated tool for collecting and analyzing over-the-air data in a JTRS test environment. The tool will provide Automated Analysis of Data link Transmissions (AADT) where a single JTRS terminal may be part of one or more JTRS networks. In the JTRS environment, the possibility exists for a single terminal to be connected to ...

  6. End-to-End Performance Management for RF Networks

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: AF071072

    The needs of the future Airborne Network present unique challenges for performance monitoring, beyond the capabilities of conventional approaches: a fast-moving, dynamically adapting, heterogeneous RF network in need of real-time, end-to-end performance monitoring. We propose to research and develop innovative approaches that will help to ensure high quality performance throughout the Airborne Net ...

  8. Tether Propulsion System for XS-11 Satellite Retrieval Mission

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A small propellantless electrodynamic tether system can provide a low-mass and low-cost means for lowering the orbit of an existing satellite from high- or mid-LEO altitudes down to low-LEO altitudes so that the satellite can be retrieved for examination,repair, or return to Earth. We propose to develop prototype hardware for an electrodynamic tether drag system to enable a
