  1. 1 Micron Fiber Optic Receiver for Mil-Aero Environment

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N171031

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a high-power, high-speed photodiode (PD) receiver optimized for operation at 1 micron wavelength based on collaboration with Dr. J.C. Campbells research group at the UVA. Demand of such photonic receiver arose from the urgent need of high performance microwave photonic links that replace the conventional metal cables for better SWaP, immunity to EMI and broader ...

  2. 20/20 Immersive Display System Based on Eye Tracking

    SBC: OASYS TECHNOLOGY, LLC.            Topic: N07041

    This research program is concerned with the design and fabrication of a novel head-mounted display system which utilizes foveal imaging techniques in order to provide eye limited resolution within a very wide, immersive field of vision. The application includes a “smart” allocation of high resolution imagery which is tracked to the user’s gaze point. This creates a system which is very eff ...

  3. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  4. A compact, low cost, in- process welding defects detection system based on thermal plasma emission

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N08178

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the University of Michigan (UM) detail the development of a compact, portable, and low cost in-process weld defects detection system. Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) weld defects monitoring based on plasma emission characteristics; b) use the electron temperature of the plasma as an indicator of the weld quality, c) use multiple plasma ...

  5. A Fast Acting Solid-State Circuit Breaker for Electrical Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP6

    Increased demands for electric vehicle performance have resulted in large power requirements and the potential for extremely large fault currents. This is true not only for over-the-road electric and hybrid vehicles, but also for ships and aircraft, which are increasingly moving toward all-electric propulsion. Without fast and reliable means to limit fault currents and isolate faulted sections, ...

  6. A Handheld HUMS for the AAG Water Twister

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N171011

    The Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) water twister is an important component for future U.S. Navy launch and recovery capabilities, and innovative technologies are needed to ensure high performance and availability. Creare proposes to develop a handheld Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) to identify incipient component degradation before failure so that preventive measures can be made before m ...

  7. A High-Temperature Battlefield Fuel Vaporization Membrane

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A06173

    The Army seeks to standardize all equipment on its battlefield logistics fuel, JP-8. JP-8 is difficult to use for small-scale, low-power applications, however, since its low vapor pressure and complex composition inhibit complete vaporization. Existing methods for vaporizing logistics fuels are not sufficiently controllable to support highly efficient catalytic combustion processes, or impose un ...

  8. A Laser-Assisted Machining Approach for the High-Performance Machining of CMCs

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N08036

    Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are desirable for high-performance aircraft engines due to their excellent strength-to-weight ratio and their ability to withstand high temperatures. However, CMCs are expensive to machine due to their low thermal conductivity, high hardness, and abrasiveness. Creare’s innovation is a novel Laser-Assisted Machining (LAM) system for high-performance machining of ...

  9. A Modular Power Converter for Austere Space Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151084

    ABSTRACT: Spacecraft power management relies upon DC-DC converters to provide multiple voltages from the storage battery. Currently available converters have shortcomings in areas of power density, tolerance to radiation and wide operating temperatures, and excessive development cost. We propose to develop a high density power converter that is compatible with spacecraft operational environments ...

  10. A Novel Composite Repair Modeling System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF171112

    Many new-generation military aircraft are fabricated from high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs). The ability to effectively repair these aircraft in the field requires the use of patches that can be cured to specific temperature ranges, with
