  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A Custom High Performance L-band ADC and Characterization of a First Generation DAC

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF161082

    Next generation GPS satellite/ground communication systems must be robust to hostile jammers which degrade link budget and desensitize reception. A proposed solution is to use frequency hopping techniques to communicate in a spectrum space free of hostile jammers and a radio in which the agility and robustness is provided by high-performance broadband data-converters. The so called software define ...

  6. A HIGH-SPEED MULTISPECTRA INFRARED VIDEO SYSTEM TO MEASURE THE REACTION FRONT OF SOLID PROPELLANTS

    SBC: Ftr Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A NEW HIGH-SPEED MULTISPECTRA INFRARED (MS-IR) VIDEO SYSTEM EQUIPPED WITH MULTIPLE FOCAL PLANE DETECTOR ARRAYS (FPDA) SUPPORTED BY NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE ELECTRONIC DRIVING CIRCUITS AND OUR SOFTWARE IN ORDER TO MEASURE THE REACTION FRONT OF SOLID PROPELLANTS. THE NEW MS-IR SYSTEM WILL MEASURE THE IR EMISSION IMAGE OF THE REACTION FRONT THROUGH FOUR WAVEBANDS TO DETERMINE TH ...

  7. A Low Noise Tunable Wavelength Laser for Fiber Optic Sensor Systems

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N08046

    Current fiber optic towed systems under development for Naval platforms require many low noise on-board lasers built to specific frequencies ranging from approximately 1520nm to 1560nm. A low noise tunable wavelength laser, which could be tuned over the wavelength range would significantly reduce system sparing and maintainability requirements. Princeton Optronics has developed very high performa ...

  8. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Metal Sorting Sensor for Chemical Cleaning and Stripping Process

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161009

    ABSTRACT: After a certain amount of service time, many aircraft components need to be cleaned and the coatings on those parts need to be stripped. Prior to the chemical cleaning and stripping processes, those parts are routinely examined by inspectors to locate the part numbers and find their matches on a list. Such a visual inspection process is not only time consuming, but also prone to human er ...

  9. ACTIVATED METAL DECOY FOR LOW IR SIGNATURE AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Alloy Surfaces Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACTIVATED STEEL FOIL FABRICATED INTO ELEMENTS TO BE PACKAGED AS EXPENDABLE DECOYS HAS SHOWN GOOD PERFORMANCE IN LOW IR SIGNATURE APPLICATIONS. THE PRESENT BATCH PRODUCTION PROCESS FOR THESE FOILS ENTAILS, IN PART, TWENTY HOURS OF FURNACE TREATMENT. A COMBINATION OF NINE SEPARATE OPERATIONS, LOW PRODUCTION RATES AND HIGH LABOR COSTS YIELDS A UNIT MANUFACTURING COST OF MORE THAN $250.00. WE PROPOSE ...

  10. Active Vibration and Physics-Based Health Management

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF073135

    The proposed approach adds critical and innovative methods to existing vibration and electric current based CBM systems that allow more detailed evaluation of machinery health. The key methods, termed as TAP™ (Time Averaged Pulse) and BLIP™ (Bump Load Induced Pulse), involve artificial stimulation applied to the machinery system. MSI’s active method provides data in response to imposed lev ...
