  1. Manufacturing Issues for Multimode Seeker Domes

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A07016

    The U.S. Army's Joint Air to Ground Missile (JAGM) and the Air Force Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) are two potential candidates for insertion of multi-mode seeker missiles technology. Surmet has recently demonstrated proof-of-principle multilayer missile domes for these seekers. But technical challenges remain in scaling the processes to manufacturing level. The amount of touch labor, reproducibility ...

  2. MEMS Enhanced Laser Spectrometer for Ultra-sensitive Toxic Chemical Detection

    SBC: Block Mems, LLC            Topic: A07135

    The Joint Services is seeking a miniaturized, low cost sensor for detection and identification of CWAs and TICs. To meet this requirement Block MEMS has very successfully completed a Phase I effort to develop a widely tunable MEMS enhanced Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) spectrometer called LaserChemTM. LaserChemTM will have sensitivity in the parts per trillion, be under 1800 cm3 in size, have very l ...

  3. Ballistic Missile System Composite Materials and Structures

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA04041

    The current use of polymer matrix composite materials aboard U.S. Navy ships has been limited to mainly exterior parts such as DDX topside structures, sonar bow domes, towed array fairings, diving planes, control surfaces and the prototype submarine sail dome for VA class submarines. There has been increasing interest in the development of composite materials for applications inside ships and sub ...

  5. Organic Photovoltaics--Flexible Light Weight Multi-junction Cells Based on Polymer/fullerene Active Layers

    SBC: KONARKA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF071133

    In Phase I, we are examining materials that can be used to make tandem cells, with formulations that can be used on the process development coating machine. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of tandem modules with 6% efficiency. Phase II will begin mid-May 2008 with the goal of reproducible, 7% efficiency, tandem-cell module prototypes made on our coater/printer machines. These prototypes ...

  6. ESPA On-orbit Maneuvering System (OMS)

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: AF071284

    Busek Co. Inc. is developing a Multi-Mode Orbit Maneuvering System (MMOMS) that can be added to ESPA ring, transforming it into a free-flying spacecraft that can deliver payloads to multiple orbits. In Phase I, we proved the feasibility of the concept and defined the architecture. The MMOMS has three sub-assemblies: The ESPA ring; the ESPA Propulsion Module (EPM), and the Power and Avionics Modu ...

  7. High-Power VECSELs with Good Beam Quality


    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 ...
