  1. Innovative Approaches to the Fabrication of Composite Rotary Wing Main Rotor Blade Spars with Option

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N08026

    Sponsored by NAVAIR, Accudyne Systems completed a Phase 1 SBIR program, developing an equipment and process concept for cost-effective fabrication of composite rotary wing main rotor blade spars. The CH-53K spar was the study focus. The recommended work cell concept combines automated tape placement, woven fabric placement, and pick and place of 45° parallelograms to layup plies, then debulk and ...

  2. Improved Performance, More Producible Long Wave IR Integrated Dewar Assemblies

    SBC: WILLIAM P. KUHN, PH.D., LLC            Topic: MDA08019

    A versatile and portable instrument for stray light detection and diagnosis at both visible and infrared wavelengths will be designed, built, and demonstrated. The core idea of the proposed approach is to use subaperture, rather than full aperture, illumination for stray light detection. The subaperture approach uses a scanning pencil beam (SPB) that provides information about the location of a s ...

  3. High Power 2-micron Fiber Laser Components

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093158

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Fiber laser operating in the 1.9-2.1micron wavelength regimes have achieved operating powers approaching 1kW. Such fiber lasers have great potential in the areas of laser radar, remote sensing, medicine, and infrared (IR) countermeasures. However, further development of these technologies is hindered by a lack of commerc ...

  4. Low-Cost Mid-Wavelength Infrared All-Fiber Source

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093212

    An all-fiber mid-infrared laser source offers many unique features that are key to next-generation infrared countermeasure systems. We propose a low-cost all-fiber mid-infrared light source operating in 2-5 micron wavelength range with ~1000watt average output power, based on our proprietary infrared glass/fiber technology. All-fiber monolithic design allows us to develop such a low-cost fiber las ...

  5. Innovative Broadband Infrared Coherent Fiber Image Bundle

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093216

    High spatial resolution infrared imaging fiber bundles are needed to spatially analyze combustion processes accessible only by probe penetrations into high pressure and/or high temperature regions such as turbine combustors and afterburners. Specialized infrared fibers including chalcogenide and ZBLAN fibers are typically very expensive and brittle and fragile. We propose to develop an innovative ...

  6. Isolator for Fiber Laser Amplifier Arrays

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093008

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Several kW of output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. While high power fiber lasers have been successfully deployed in industry, one piece of critical components, fiber isolator, is still not available. F ...

  7. Innovative Eye-Safe Wavelength High Power Fiber Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: A10028

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in the last several years. Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power at 1 micron from one single mode fiber has been demonstrated. Department of Defense (DoD) needs 100s of kW for missile defense as well as for protection against rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM). There is serious concern about current 1 micron fiber laser system potentia ...

  8. Airworthy Cable Angle Measurement System For Slung Load Operations

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A09013

    Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS) has developed and demonstrated the Cable Angle Measurement System, a low-cost, accurate system for measuring a helicopter’s load position and motion at the end of an external sling. By using a camera, an LED target, and custom electronics, the AOS system measures the load’s angle with better than 0.1° accuracy across a 150° field of view and with 0.1°/s ...

  9. Autonomous Persistent Surveillance and Targeting for the Asymmetric Air Threat (APSTAAT)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N07209

    Maritime asymmetric threat detection begins with an in depth comprehension of the tactical picture. Security lies in the ability to sense threats in all environments. Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS), together with partners Technology Systems, Inc. (TSI) and Raytheon IDS, have joined together to propose APSTAAT. APSTAAT is a system for autonomous persistent surveillance for the asymmetric air ...

  10. Advanced LADAR Imagery Augmentation Systems (ALIAS)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: N08147

    Visually degraded environment (VDE) conditions pose a threat to Navy and Marine Corps helicopter operations during landings and troop insertions/extractions. Blinding dust clouds caused by rotor down-wash during low level flight can cause pilots to suddenly lose all visual cues. This loss of situational awareness (SA) creates significant risks from other aircraft and ground obstacles. According to ...
