  5. Contamination-Free, Lightweight, Helium-Rubidium Vapor Circulation System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12018

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) require a uniform, steady, flowing mixture of helium and rubidium vapor at elevated pressure and temperature. Significant challenges exist because rubidium is a very reactive material. In response, our team is developing a contamination-free, all-metal, hermetic, circulation system based on gas-bearing turbomachines. Specific benefits include low mass, ...

  6. Feature Based Machine Leaning

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: MDA12028

    The bulk filtering algorithm is designed to suppress or eliminate uninteresting objects from a sensor data stream allowing sensor management systems to focus finite resources more effectively on objects of interest. During Phase II Vadum will carry out a series of demonstrations showing the incremental integration of their bulk filter approach within a high fidelity lab environment. Vadum will a ...

  8. High Energy Laser (HEL) Analysis Tool with Experimentally Corroborated Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser (DPAL) Rate Coefficients

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Proper design of Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The resulting product will be a user-friendly, high-fi ...
