  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...
