  1. High Energy Laser Technology Innovations for BMDS Directed Energy, Tracking, and Illumination

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA09037

    Next generation lasers for Missile Defense ranging applications require scaling pulse brightness and repetition rates in compact and efficient packages. To address this need, nLIGHT proposes to significantly increase the pulse energy of a passively Q-switched diode pumped solid state laser while maintaining excellent beam quality in an efficient master- oscillator power amplifier architecture.

  3. Large Format Dual Band FPA ROIC for Low Flux Environments


    In Phase-I of the project we constructed a unique ROIC design based on our Amplifier-Shared-Dual-Band CTIA (ASDBC) technology to address the problems experienced by the existing ROICs. In Phase-II, we will refine and complete the design, manufacture the ROIC, fabricate the FPA, and test the completed product. One application issue presented by the DBCHI is the large gain variation across the array ...

  4. Forward Bathymetry Sensing for Safe High Speed Boat Operation


    ESA is pleased to provide the following proposal regarding the Lidar Collision Avoidance Bathymetry System (L-CABS), an above-water, laser-based, forward-looking collision avoidance and bathymetry sensor system. The significance of this innovation is the use of lidar sensors mounted above the water surface. Lidar is a mature technology that has been proven in numerous applications, including but n ...

  5. Weapon System Intermittent Fault Detection

    SBC: Livewire Innovation, Inc.            Topic: AF083113

    ABSTRACT: Weapon systems or other high value electrical systems within the US military are all subject to wiring faults and degradation. Additionally, weapon systems are kept in service longer because of shrinking defense budgets, further compounding the risks associated with wiring systems. The ability to detect and provide the location of existing wiring problems or pending failures is critic ...

  6. Tube Launched UAS with Modular Payload Bays and Interfaces

    SBC: Brock Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083006

    The submarine communitys critical need for advanced payload and expanded flight-envelop capable small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is stalled by current tube launched UAS which have low endurance with low performance Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) packages. Additionally, todays market tube-launched UAS are generally deployed from specific tube launching systems to collect ...

  7. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  8. Ultrashort-Pulse CO2 Laser for Remote Sensing

    SBC: S T I Optronics Inc            Topic: SB082003

    An innovative prototype tunable CO2 laser system with subnanosecond pulse duration and high peak power will be built and delivered for experiments on double-resonance remote sensing of gaseous chemical agents being conducted at the Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC). Such a laser is critical for these experiments. The double-resonance technique offer ...

  9. Spoofing Network Architectures in Response to Hostile Reconnaissance

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: A10014

    The DataSoft Network Obfuscation and Virtualized Anti-reconnaissance system (NOVA) detects hostile network reconnaissance and denies access to real network information while simultaneously providing false network information to attackers. This results in attackers expending significantly extra time and effort, allowing defenders additional time to mount an appropriate response. NOVA is a novel dis ...

  10. EW Countermeasures Against Passive MMW Sensors

    SBC: PHASE SENSITIVE INNOVATIONS INC            Topic: N092133

    An emerging class of passive millimeter-wave (pmmW) sensors currently provides an unmitigated threat to the US Navy. While considerable effort has been expended reducing RADAR signatures of the next generation of Naval vessels, these ship designs often present significant signatures to pmmW sensors. To date, little has been done to understand or reduce these signatures. However, as a new class of ...
