  1. Fast Switching Array for WDM-Photonic Time Delay

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative concept of a fast switching array for high bit-resolution photonic time delay that can be scalable to the ESA systems of MDA/Navy radars is proposed. The design is based on Electro-Optic (EO) effect incorporated with super miniature fiber collimation array, which is suitable to integrate in the current developing fiber based photonic WDM-true time delay technologies. The new EO switc ...

  2. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: MDA06T011

    JRD, Raytheon, and Tuskegee University have successfully completed the Phase I effort for design and development of an advanced solid state cryocooler for infrared sensor components. In addition, it was decided that the lowest-risk path forward for Phase II is the two-stage hybrid pulse tube / Joule-Thomson design. These initial calculations predict that efficiency potential of the solid state c ...

  3. Compact Laser Sources for Advanced Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: JGM ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: MDA08T004

    Phase I will conduct modeling and breadboard experiments to assess whether VHGM laser technology can achieve laser sources that enable active LADAR performance that surpasses present technology by a factor or 4, while packaging the laser head into a volume of 3 cubic inches. Phase II will build laser prototypes based on Phase I results.

  4. Innovative Photonic Time Delay Units for Radar Applications

    SBC: S2 CORPORATION            Topic: MDA08T012

    We aim to design and demonstrate an innovative photonic true time delay solution which alleviates the fundamental problem of cascaded optical switches, and additionally offers several significant benefits. The device uses wideband spatial-spectral (S2) holographic optical memory materials to store and access several broadband time delay gratings. Broadband optical chirps are used to create these ...

  5. Spray-Coatable Metamaterials for Use as Narrow Bandpass Filters(1001-315)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T009

    Triton, together with our STTR partner, proposes to develop the theory and fabrication capabilities necessary to develop a metamaterials coating solution for mirror optics that is capable of passing a narrow spectral band in the long wave infrared (LWIR) spectrum for the purposes of stray light correction in interceptor sensors. In the Phase I program we will deliver both a mathematical descripti ...

  6. Small Scale Cryogenic Refrigeration Technology: Small-Scale PTR

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, Inc. in collaboration with Georgia Tech and Raytheon Company proposes a Phase II STTR program for the development and testing of meso- and micro-scale Pulse Tube Refrigerator cryocooler systems. The Phase I program performed numerical modeling and CFD simulations of the small-scale effects (e.g., increased surface area to volume ratios with relatively greater fri ...

  7. An Absolute C02 Monitor with Extremely High Accuracy

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 43b

    Carbon dioxide is monitored worldwide at hundreds of monitoring stations. However, existing methods rely on the use of high pressure calibration gas cylinders, which are both labor intensive and expensive. Thus, there is a pressing need for an affordable, highly accurate (at least 1 part in 3000) carbon dioxide monitor for the ambient atmosphere that can operate unattended for several months or ...

  8. Novel Wireless NDE Sensors for Continuous Monitoring of Thermal Power Plant Components


    Currently, most (85%) of the nation¿s energy requirements are met through burning fossil fuels, of which coal accounts for about 23% of current energy supplies. The ability to further exploit the nation¿s most abundant and lowest cost resource (coal) for meeting future energy needs will require that our power plants function safely and efficiently as they age. In turn, technologies are needed ...

  9. An Integrated In Situ Raman and Turbidity Sensor for High Level Waste Tanks

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 65a

    Stored nuclear waste must be retrieved from storage, treated, separated into low- and high-level waste streams, and finally put into a disposal form that effectively encapsulates the waste and isolates it from the environment for a long period of time. However, before the waste can be retrieved, the waste composition must be characterized so that proper safety precautions can be implemented durin ...

  10. Development of Photonic Band Gap Structures for Particle Acceleration

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: 38a

    As the dimensions of fundamental scientific and technological structures and processes become smaller, research in these areas is often limited to a few very large and costly particle accelerator facilities. A revolutionary approach utilizing photonic band-gap (PBG) microstructures offers the opportunity to develop compact high-gradient inexpensive accelerators. A unique opportunity of this propos ...
