  1. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  3. A Single Aperature Dual-Wavelength Dual Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and nation’s economy. From an average of $10B (2005 dollars) annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry that is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets being lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now-casting and forecasti ...

  4. High-Speed Three-Channel Photonic Time Delay Unit

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative, super-miniature, fast-switching array-based photonic time delay device is being developed for the active electronically scanned-array (AESA) MDA and Navy radars. The design is based on the fast electro-optic effect, the super miniature fiber-lens collimation array, and the existing WDM photonic true time delay technologies. In Phase I Agiltron has successfully demonstrated the core ...

  6. Resource Allocation using Market-Based Optimization (RAMBO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Missile defense takes place in a dynamic, uncertain environment. Multi-raid attacks threaten to overload sensor capabilities, leaving fewer sensor resources free to observe each target complex. Moreover, the shift in emphasis toward early intercept, coupled with the growing importance of short- and medium-range threats, reduces the time available for detection, tracking, and discrimination, becaus ...

  7. Unified Control-Theoretic Multi-Raid Sensor Management Algorithms

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Detecting, localizing, identifying, tracking, and intercepting multiple and dispersed missiles aimed at multiple and dispersed defended areas, presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. The Scientific Systems Company, Inc. team proposes a foundational, information-theoretic and controltheoretic approach. It is based on mathematically modeling a multiplatform-multisensor-multitarget s ...

  9. Compact, Ultra- Narrow-Bandwidth, High-Power Diode Laser Pumps for Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: MDA10007

    The diode pumped alkali laser (DPAL) allows for a potentially scalable approach towards a MW-class high energy laser system. By using an alkali vapor gain medium, one overcomes the intrinsic thermo-optical limitations of more conventional diode-pumped solid state laser (DPSSL) media. High spectral brightness diode pump sources are proposed as the enabling element for efficient, kW-class DPAL sys ...

  10. Novel, High-Power, Pump-Signal Fiber Combiner

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA10008

    Recent advances in fiber lasers have shown their potential for power scaling to Directed Energy levels. Many of the high-power, cladding-pumped, large-mode-area fiber systems demonstrated in the laboratory have employed free-space optics to couple the diode laser pump power into the pump cladding of the fiber. While the approach is useful for power scaling demonstrations, it is not practical for ...
