  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. ACTOR: Automated Collateral Tactics for OPFOR Responses

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A06210

    A key challenge for battlefield simulation is the estimation of enemy courses of action (COAs). Current 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 decision aids that can predict adversary’s intent and range of possible behaviors, as well as automation of such technologies wit ...

  5. Adaptive Communication System for Extreme Power Line Networks

    SBC: NORTHERN MICRODESIGN, INC.            Topic: SB043038

    An ad-hoc networking method is proposed for use over existing power lines in large commercial buildings. The network is minimally sensitive to lossy elements such as distribution transformers and tripped or OFF circuit breakers and hardware may be made interoperable with existing power line communication systems. Adaption performance of the network is programmable so that various sensor requiremen ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Built-In Filament Control for Long Lifetime in Broad Area Diode Lasers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: ST061009

    The elimination or suppression of filaments through the use of photonic crystal structures is proposed in this STTR. Filament formation is a well-known problem in high-power, broad area semiconductor diode lasers, often leading to catastrophic failure of the diodes. The diode failure also normally results in a system failure in the systems in which the diodes are employed. By using a bi-direct ...
