  1. 10 kW Polarization Maintaining Fiber Laser Power Amplifiers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA10008

    nLIGHT will develop a novel fused fiber combiner capable of accepting standard-sized active fibers. This"over-sleeve"combiner is designed to leave the active fiber undisturbed, allowing for counter propagation pumping of the laser amplifier, while efficiently coupling multiple kilowatts of power into the active fiber.

  2. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric lenses focusing system and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA) developed by Spectrum Magnetics, LLC (SM). The focusing system project the RF signal onto its focus plane. A novel FPDA based on emerging spintronic and met ...

  3. A Compact, Low Cost, Handheld Sensor for Non- Destructive Material Case Depth Verification

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N102141

    In this SBIR program, AlphaSense, Inc. teamed with the Center for Non-destructive Evaluations at Iowa State University to develop a compact, low cost handheld sensor for non-destructive material case depth verification. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using an alternating current potential drop (ACPD) sensor for non-destructive measurements of case depth. Phase II will be focusing on ...

  4. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  5. A Plasma Process to Produce Refractory Metal Clad Continuous Lengths of Copper Alloy Gun Rails

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT025

    An electromagnetic launcher also known as a rail gun is a major gun system the Navy is developing for long range fire support. A refractory metal cladding on a copper rail is enabling for the successful high fire rate and long life of the electromagnetic launcher. Heretofore, a successful process for adherently cladding/coating a refractory metal onto a copper rail that withstands the rigors of an ...

  6. A Platform-Independent Framerwork for Efficient Massively Parallel Execution

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: OSD11T02

    Next-generation high-performance computers (HPCs) are built as massively parallel systems where the parallelism exists at many levels. These systems are a collection of nodes all working together. Each node generally contains more than one processor and each processor contains multiple cores. Managing and efficiently utilizing the different parallelism in such a system is a complex task. Furth ...

  7. Accelerated Linear Algebra Solvers for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT18

    ABSTRACT: High-performance computing (HPC) programmers and domain experts, such as those in the Air Force's research divisions, develop solvers for a wide variety of application areas such as modeling next generation aircraft and weapons designs and advanced image processing analysis. When developing software for HPC systems, the programmer should not spend the majority of their time optimiz ...

  8. Advanced Seal Technology for Helicopter Drive System Application

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: A12076

    Gearbox seal wear and leakage is a major source of maintenance and downtime for rotorcraft. Sentient will use our advanced tribology modeling technology to evaluate coatings and surface texturing processes for carbon face seals and provide a generalized modeling approach that can replace physical testing of seals. These models will be used to evaluate several rotorcraft seal designs proposed by ou ...

  9. All Fiber-based Ultrashort Chirped Pulse Amplification Laser Operating at 2um Wavelengths Based on Thulium Doped Germanate Active Fibers

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N103210

    NP Photonics proposes to develop an all fiber-based ultrashort fiber laser system capable of generating high average power (multi-watt), single mode beam (M2 < 2) with high peak power per pulse and ultrashort pulse width (< 1 ps). This type of laser has significant advantages in terms of reliability (no moving parts or alignment), room temperature operation, size, weight, and power efficiency comp ...
