  1. A Novel, High Precision, X-ray 3D Scanner for Non-Line-of-Sight Point Cloud Generation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161013

    ABSTRACT: Casting parts with intricate internal surfaces are routinely used in many gun systems. It is important to inspect those casting parts to ensure the inner structures comply with the original design during the first article testing and production lot certification. Currently, inspections of inner surfaces are often done with borescopes, which is time consuming, labor intensive, and costly. ...

  2. Adaptive-Zoom Weapon Scope with Integral Ranging, Tracking, and Fire Control

    SBC: VisSidus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A152096

    Birds of prey, also known as raptors, are birds that hunt or feed on other animals. They are characterized by keen vision that allows them to detect prey during flight. Since vision is the most important sense for birds, and good eyesight is essential for safe flight, this group has a number of adaptations which give visual acuity superior to that of other vertebrate groups.The objective of this S ...

  3. Adjustable Focus Lenses for Respiratory Protection

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: CBD152001

    A low-cost, adjustable optical-correction technology will be developed for integration with AVON M50 respiratory protective masks, allowing forfast, adjustable vision correction. Variable-focus lenses will be designed using 3D freeform gradient index materials, which allow both opticalpower and geometric and chromatic aberrations corrections to be achieved in planar films. A Phase I prototype will ...

  4. Advanced Heat Spreader Technology for Gallium Nitride (GaN) Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs)

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: N161052

    In this Phase I effort, ThermAvant will design, fabricate and empirically demonstrate high-thermal conductivity heat spreaders for high power GaN Power Amplifiers (PAs) on advanced Navy platforms. The Oscillating Heat Pipe (OHP) is the core technology that will enable demonstration of structurally sound, thin-profile heat spreaders that can attach to PAs and dissipate their high heat fluxes with m ...

  6. Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design Methods for Compact Optical Transceiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15AT001

    To meet the U.S. military needs for hardened laser-ranging sensors for munitions applications, a compact, high-repetition-rate, high-pulse-energy laser rangefinder will be developed consisting of a temperature-stabilized avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver, with a few photons equivalent sensitivity, and a miniature diode-pumped microchip laser. An existing integrated circuit design will be updated ...

  7. Advanced Spectrally Selective Materials for Obscurant Applications

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    Plasmonic metamaterials, composed of patterned metallic and dielectrics, can be engineered to have interesting optical properties that are attractive for a range of advanced obscurant applications. These particles are typically fabricated on planar surfaces, since patterning planar surfaces to achieve the desired effects is relatively straightforward.However, for planar geometries the particles op ...

  9. Analysis of Integrated Circuits Using Limited X-rays

    SBC: Lickenbrock Technologies LLC            Topic: DMEA152002

    There exists currently a need to non-destructively evaluate the construction of integrated circuits (ICs) that will ensure the trust of ICs used inmilitary systems, but designed and fabricated under untrusted conditions. An X-ray microscope (XRM) equipped with a lab X-ray source will beused to fill this need. The drawbacks to this system are prohibitively long acquisition times due to reduced X-ra ...

  10. ASP Motion Base for Stabilized Mounts

    SBC: FLEX FORCE ENTERPRISES LLC            Topic: A12079

    The ASP family of stabilized weapon mounts is ideal for use in airborne, shipboard, and land applications when platform stability significantly reduces gunner effectiveness. The ASP three axis gyro stabilized weapon mount is designed to dramatically increase gunner accuracy (>10x increase in hit probability) even during aggressive platform maneuvers. The ASP is the ideal solution for coastal patro ...
