  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. Turbine Inlet Gas Temperature Measurement System

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF083260

    The Air Force is seeking new technology that will provide the means to accurately measure and monitor turbine inlet gas temperature in gas turbine engines, particularly in advanced engines operating at very high temperatures (>3,100 degree F). In Phase I of this program, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. demonstrated that turbine inlet gas temperature can be determined from non-intrusive measurements ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. A Novel Automated and Controlled Dual Laser Ablation System for Selective Removal of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF093120

    Thermal barrier coatings have been widely used to provide thermal protection to superalloy components in gas turbine engines. After certain amount of service time, the coating experiences a reduction in thickness by processes such as wear, erosion and foreign/domestic object damage. When the thickness decreases below a critical value, the thermal barrier effect provided by the coating is no longer ...
