  1. High-Power VECSELs with Good Beam Quality

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: OSD05D03

    Science Research Laboratory (SRL) proposes to develop an optically pumped high-efficiency, good-beam-quality vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting laser (VECSEL) that is scalable to multi-kilowatt power levels. Unlike the more conventional edge-emitting diode lasers, VECSELs are characterized by (1) a small gain-medium thickness (~1 micron) along the laser-propagation direction; (2) the potent ...

  2. High Performance Uncooled Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: A06121

    Science Research Laboratory (SRL) proposes to develop a novel uncooled thermal-to-visible transducer (TVT) that will revolutionize long-wavelength-infrared (LWIR) imaging. The technology utilizes as a sensor a Fabry-Perot interferometer that is heated by absorbing LWIR radiation, which changes its reflectivity in the visible. Reflected light, imaged onto a CCD or CMOS array, provides an image of ...

  7. ACTOR: Automated Collateral Tactics for OPFOR Responses

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: A06210

    A key challenge for battlefield mission rehearsal and training systems is the estimation of enemy courses of action (COAs). Currently, adversarial COA development is a manual time-consuming process prone to errors due to limited knowledge about the adversary and its ability to adapt. Development of battlefield simulations with embedded technology that can predict its adversary’s intent and range ...
