  1. "Photistors": Optoelectronic Switches

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Spire proposes to investigate unique, linear, sensitive, optically triggered, electronic switches that will enable new progress in antenna switching and reconfiguration and in microwave control. Such devices are dual-use technology, desired by both defense and commercial antenna manufacturers. California Microwave, Inc., an antenna company, is actively seeking a practical implementation of such sw ...

  3. 3-Dimensional Isotropic Metamaterials Lens(1001-124)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB072035

    Triton Systems’ team proposes to identify and develop a metamaterials-based lenses system capable of imaging beyond the diffraction limit in the visible spectrum. The use of negative index of refraction to resolve features beyond the diffraction index limit has been demonstrated for wavelengths outside of the visible. Triton’s team will expand the theory and experimentally demonstrate metama ...

  4. 3D Diode-Cross-Coupled Tapered Lasers for Kilowatt-Class, Chip-Scale, Laser Diode Phased Arrays

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB062013

    In this proposal, nLight and their collaborator, Eric Johnson, of CREOL, seek to address the main limitations in generating phased arrays by using very high power single mode tapered devices that are phase locked via long “coupling” lasers. The individual diodes would be phase aligned by careful control of their drive current – this would fine-tune the phase to bring it into alignment. The c ...

  5. 3D Diode-Cross-Coupled Tapered Lasers for Kilowatt-Class, Chip-Scale, Laser Diode Phased Arrays

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB062013

    Based on promising results obtained under our Phase 1 SBIR contract, nLIGHT wishes to proceed with a Phase 2 program. In the proposed program, nLIGHT will continue the development of high power, single-lateral-mode tapered diode lasers. nLIGHT has identified fundamental limitations to the operation of tapered diode lasers and proposes novel design and fabrication process improvements which direc ...

  6. A "Smart Skin" Array for Reconfigurable Hypersonic MHD Effects

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB032031

    Research Support Instruments, Inc. (RSI), with the aid of Princeton University, proposes to use an innovative sensor/actuator package to provide a critical component for multifunctional hypersonic vehicle structures. An integrated array of microfabricated pressure sensors and ionizers will provide a "smart skin" atop a reconfigurable magnetic array. The high-bandwidth sensors will detect develo ...

  7. A 3D NAVIER-STOKES FLOW ANALYSIS FOR A LARGE-ARRAY MULTIPROCESSOR

    SBC: Amtec Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) CODES HAVE BECOME IMPORTANT DESIGN AND ANALYSIS TOOLS FOR ENGINEERS, PARTICULARLY IN THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY. CFD CODES, HOWEVER, ARE SEVERELY LIMITED BY THE COMPUTING RESOURCES OF PRESENT-DAY SUPERCOMPUTERS. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT A THREE ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE INCREASE IN COMPUTER SPEED IS NECESSARY FOR PERFORMING PRACTICAL ENGINEERING VISCOUS-FLOW ANALYSES OF FULL AI ...

  8. A Comparison of Methods to Detect and Eliminate Secondary Target Returns from Adaptive Radar Training Data

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For SAR, spatial and temporal adaptive processing (STAP) uses samples local to the cell being processed to estimate local clutter and noise statistics. If these samples are corrupted by returns from other unknown targets, the statistics are invalid and theperformance of the algorithms can be degraded. We propose to conduct a range of experiments to evaluate signal detection, statistical, multi-loo ...

  9. A Fast-Match Approach for Spoken Language Systems in Medical Environments

    SBC: Integrated Speech Solutions            Topic: N/A

    Robust speech recognition is needed for speech technology to be useful in the real world. People's speech is often spoken in noisy environments which greatly increases the difficulty of hihg-accuracy speech recognition. The research proposed here will result in the identification of technologies for speech recognition in noisy environments, as well as a prototype system designed to automatically s ...

  10. A Flexible and Extensible Solution to Incorporating New RF Devices and Capabilities into EW/ ISR Networks

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: ST13A004

    VIStology, Northeastern University and BBN are proposing a standards-based solution to seamless insertion of new RF devices and capabilities into multifunction Electronic Warfare (EW)/Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) networks without re
