  1. 10 kW Polarization Maintaining Fiber Laser Power Amplifiers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA10008

    nLIGHT proposes the development of a 10 kW power amplifier with a predicted power conversion efficiency of approximately 45%. The 10 kW power amplifier will be based on nLIGHT's high power, high efficiency, narrow-linewidth fiber coupled lasers diode modules. We will utilize custom fused fiber combiners to combine the pump modules in an efficient manner, enabling the pumping of next-generatio ...

  2. A Novel Method for Fast Rendering of Missile Plume Imagery

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05044

    Since infrared radiation from missile exhaust plumes is a key observable for many satellite sensors and interceptor seekers, considerable effort has been expended in developing and validating high-fidelity plume signature codes. However, their utility for systems studies of missile fly-outs is limited by extremely long run times for each calculation. Spectral Sciences developed a data-driven algo ...

  3. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  4. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  5. Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR)

    SBC: MZEAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Use of"Smartphones"and cellular networks is becoming an increasing priority for military applications. By placing the source of information directly with the solider on the ground via a Smartphone, the vision of"every soldier a sensor"becomes attainable. mZeal proposes to facilitate this vision with the Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR) system. AMMSTAR will capture photographic ...

  6. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Wake and Reentry Flows

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10023

    The outcome of the proposed SBIR program will be the development of an innovative scientific testbed code suite for reentry vehicle signatures. The testbed will model all key physical hypersonic flow effects to a high degree of fidelity and will be validated against field data. It is intended that the scientific testbed code could be used as a benchmark to test lower-fidelity models, or could be u ...

  7. Advanced Spectral Signature Models for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09032

    The design of space-based optical sensors for detection, identification, and tracking of threat missile launches relies heavily on plume signature simulation models. The development of very capable plume signature models traces back ~50 years. However, because of the complexity of the underlying physics and ever-increasing requirements for improved accuracy and speed, higher spatial resolution, a ...

  8. Aerogel Enhanced Thermal Batteries

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: MDA10018

    The ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) has been established to protect the American people, their allies and troops deployed abroad. The mission capability and success of many of the elements comprising the BDMS are reliant on more efficient and capable portable power supplies. Aspen Aerogels proposes to develop next generation thermal insulation solutions specifically for use in primary re ...

  9. Anti-Fog Superhydrophobic Coating from Ultrastrong Nanocomposites

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: SB101010

    Superhydrophobic nanostructured coating will be developed from transparent ultrastrong materials. The coatings will be scalable, inexpensive, mechanically robust and thermally resilient. We will initially design such coatings using layered nanocomposites. Then it will be optimized for different surfaces. In the final stages of the project we will demonstrated scaled up version of the coatings lead ...

  10. Automated Collaboration Collection&Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers for tactical military activities, incident response, and other domains all involve multiple teams of individuals interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. In these organizations, effective coordination and collaboration is critical. To improve collaboration, an end-to-end sensor and analysis technology is n ...
