  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. 3-Dimensional, high-Z graded alloy additive manufacturing for ICBM applications


    In Phase I, UTC successfully demonstrated the ability to build 3D, high-to-low-Z graded alloys (GA) with Selective laser melting (SLM) additive manufacturing (AM) techniques. In Phase II, UTC will fully automate and scale-up the GA AM process, and work with Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMCO) and Southern Research (SR) to fully characterize the process so components intended for use on LMCO missile syst ...

  7. A Fiber-Array Illuminator Multi-Sensor All Weather Precision Tracker (FAST) For HEL Weapon Systems In Degraded Visibility Battlefield Environments

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: A15082

    Extreme weather conditions with degraded visibility severely reduce the performance of existing imaging technologies to detect rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM) on a battlefield. To meet the Army need for improved sensor systems that perform well in such conditions Optonicus has developed a fiber-array illuminator multi-sensor all-weather tracker (FAST) system that includes a gated imaging sys ...

  8. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...

    STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force

    SBC: Nu Waves Ltd.            Topic: N07191

    Existing filter technology does not suit the mechanical and electrical needs for use in expendable buoy systems. Current diplexer designs do not provide adequate rejection of the high power transmitter signal within the receive channel within the specified size, weight and acceleration constraints required for the Navy Buoy System. The proposed research includes the analysis and simulation of a h ...
