  1. RAMAN COVERTED MID-IR LASER

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PULSED MID-IR LASER IN THE 3.5 TO 4.1 MICROMETER ATMOSPHERIC TRANSMISSION WINDOW. SUCH SPECTRAL SOURCE IS RELEVANT TO A VARIETY OF TACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE DF CHEMICAL LASER HAS BEEN THE CHOICE, BUT SUFFERS FROM WASTE FUEL MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS. NO OTHER EFFICIENT DIRECT LASING SOURCE IS AVAILABLE. TO OBTAIN SUCH A SOURCE, WE PROPOSE THE USE O ...

  2. Insensitive Munitions Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: 3D RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: A05201

    3D Research Corporation and Aerojet, Incorporated, propose a novel approach to munitions modeling to assure the munitions meets Insensitive Munitions (IM) requirements of DoDD 5000.2-R and MIL-STD-2105C. IM validation of munitions requires extensive testing, and it is necessary to develop analytical approaches which accelerate the design process for IM compliance. The proposed approach evaluates ...

  3. Field-Expedient Combat Load Assessment Device (CLAD)

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A05176

    Field combat load assessment for combat training and combat mission personnel load management is an identified military need. The combat load assessment device or CLAD must meet several requirements not found in off-the-shelf commercial or consumer weighing devices. Weight requirements, accuracy requirements, functional requirements, and cost requirements prohibit the use of currently OTS hardwa ...

  4. Helicopter Remote Manipulation of External Slingloads (HERMES)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A05057

    Helicopter operations in low visibility conditions and sling load operations continue to add risk to aviation operations. If slingloads could be picked up without use of a ground crew, lives could be saved. In addition, a sensor that could detect obstacles as well as the load would help in low-visibility conditions. We propose to develop such a system. It will include the mechanical structures nec ...

  5. An Accurate, Efficient Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Algorithm for TAWS

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A05053

    A core process for sensor performance prediction is the radiative transport algorithm used to convert the scene environmental characteristics into radiance. Numeric approximations are often used to enhance execution time at the expense of overall radiometric accuracy. However, many radiative transfer approximations have limited applicability, working only for a set of atmospheric conditions, sen ...

  6. SURVIVAL IN NEAR-FUTURE BATTLEFIELD SCENARIOS MAY DEPEND UPON THE USE OF HOLOGRAPHIC OPTICAL ELEMENTS (HOES) WHOSE UNIQUE FUNCTIONS SERVE: TO PROTECT PERSONNEL FROM EYE-DAMAGING RADIATION, TO SIMPLIFY AIRCRAFT PILOT VISUAL FUNCTION, AND TO PROVIDE VASTLY

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SURVIVAL IN NEAR-FUTURE BATTLEFIELD SCENARIOS MAY DEPEND UPON THE USE OF HOLOGRAPHIC OPTICAL ELEMENTS (HOES) WHOSE UNIQUE FUNCTIONS SERVE: TO PROTECT PERSONNEL FROM EYE-DAMAGING RADIATION, TO SIMPLIFY AIRCRAFT PILOT VISUAL FUNCTION, AND TO PROVIDE VASTLY IMPROVED COMMUNITIONS AND SIGNAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS. THESE AND MANY OTHER COMPELLING CAPABILITIES OF HOES CAN ONLY BE EXPLOITED IF THEY CAN BE PR ...

  7. ADVANCED IRCM SOURCE

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE THREAT INFRARED MISSILE SEEKERS WILL POSSESS THE CAPABILITY TO EFFECTIVELY DISCRIMINATE AGAINST IR DECOY FLARES. NEW DECOY FUELS MUST BE IDENTIFIED WHICH PROVIDE A GOOD SPECTRAL MATCH BETWEEN DECOYS AND HELICOPTERS, AND WHICH HAVE IMPROVED TOTAL RADIANT INTENSITY AND BURNING CHARACTERISTICS. IN ADDITION, ALTERNATIVE DECOY CONCEPTS TO THE FREE-GRAIN FLARE MUST BE EVALUATED. IN THIS PROPOSAL, ...

  8. Reducing Complex Physico-Chemical Model Systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A05T018

    An important and fundamental challenge in science and engineering is the need to understand the system output variables (model predictions, measured observables) and their relation to the system¡¦s input variables (model inputs, specified experimental conditions). This project proposes to address this problem through the development of a family of numerical tools for implementing High Dimension ...

  9. Waveband-Switchable Low Cost IR Camera

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A04117

    Based on our recent progress in a proprietary optical MEMS IR camera technology, Agiltron Inc. proposes to develop a revolutionary approach to produce an uncooled IR imager whose operation band is switchable between broadband coverage of the combined MWIR and LWIR spectrum and only the MWIR region. The design has fundamental advantages in cost and performance compared with the competitive approac ...

  10. High Performance and Low Cost Sniper Riflescope Detection Lidar

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05006

    Dual Source Enemy Identification and Negation Lidar (DSEINL) is a preferred method with wide field of view and high detection rate to find and identify enemy combatants and sniper rifles by receiving the co-reflected or retro-reflected light from the sighting riflescope or the enemy combatant¡¦s eyes. The sighting scope mounted on weapons, such as sniper rifles, has a reticle plate fixed on the ...
