  1. Updateable 3D Display Using Large Area Photorefractive Polymer Devices

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF08T001

    Command and control battle maps and mission planning can be greatly enhanced by the representation of the battlefield in 3 dimensions. Showing perspective views, depth and occlusions allows for a better understanding of the situation, and assists in avoiding error when interpreting the terrain. Such maps already exist and are in use, but are based on permanent holographic media that cannot be refr ...

  2. Non-Contact Tabletop Mechanical Testing of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics


    A method of inducing non-contact creep deformation was demonstrated in ultra high temperature diborides via electro-magnetic forces. The Phase II effort will focus on refining the Electro-Magnetic Mechanical Apparatus to exhibit better control of test variables and have a higher degree of automation. This novel approach to characterizing Ultra High Temperature Materials will require a standard m ...

  3. Efficient high power tunable THz source based on all fiber-based pulsed fiber lasers at ~ 2 mm"

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF08T009

    In Phase I, NP Photonics has successfully demonstrated the feasibility of a fiber-based THz source that can generate high power, narrow linewidth, and tunable THz radiation by leveraging NP’s proprietary unique fibers, fiber lasers/amplifiers, and THz techniques. In Phase II, we will develop the monolithic high power ~ 2 micron pulsed fiber laser system for the proposed fiber-based THz source un ...

  5. SOI MESFETs for Ultra-Low Power Electronic Circuits

    SBC: SJT Micropower            Topic: ST071007

    Voltage compliant metal-semiconductor field-effect-transistors (MESFETs) provide solutions to critical problems arising from the reduced operating voltage of highly scaled CMOS. This Phase 2 activity will develop MESFET based circuitries that allow high voltage applications to coexist on future, highly scaled low voltage CMOS applications. Our patented MESFET technology will be used to develop bo ...

  6. A Novel Noninvasive Microwave Sensor for Quantitative Assessment of Degree of Sensitization in Marine Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N09T022

    In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the microwave cavity perturbation technique to detect and quantify DoS in marine aluminum alloys. We implemented an alpha version sensor prototype, characterized and validated its performance using ASTM G67 method. We also identified methods to further enhance the sensor sensitivity, so that DoS in the low (a few mg/cm2) to moderate range can be ...

  7. Optical Cooling of RF systems using an All Optical Fiber Approach

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N10AT017

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as high-power RF amplifiers. In our approach, the cooling fiber segment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NP Photonics' high efficiency thulium-doped fiber lasers are used to pump high purity thulium-doped glass fibers, which provide the ...

  8. Compact & Ultra-High Resolution Terahertz Spectroscopic/Fingerprint System

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT013

    NP Photonics proposes to develop a fiber-based, compact, tunable, THz spectroscopic/fingerprinting system that offers ultra-high resolution (< 1 MHz), high sensitivity and room temperature operation over the 1-3 THz range. This proposed system will provide high resolution molecular fingerprint information by leveraging NP Photonics high power and narrow linewidth fiber-based THz source, which is b ...

  9. Innovative Joining of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics (UHTC) for TPS Applications


    Ultra High Temperature Ceramics (UHTC’s) such as zirconium and hafnium diboride based composites are of particular interest for hypersonic leading edges due to their extreme refractoriness. Successful integration into hypersonic structures will require high strength / high temperature joints to bond ceramic-ceramic or ceramic-metal that can sustain the mechanical and thermal loadings at speeds ...

  10. Modeling of Small-scale Tilt-rotor Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: THORPE SEEOP CORP            Topic: N09BT039

    Modeling of multi-flight-mode rotors that provide lift in hover and lift is proposed. Work leverages on company sponsored development efforts that have followed an innovative risk reduction spiral technology development approach. The proposed effort features a wind tunnel test in Phase I to demonstrate modeling fidelity.
