  1. A Tunable Interferometric Random Optical Cross-Switch

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A random access, solid-state, optical cross-switch capable of 770 channel discrimination in the telecommunications C-band is designed and proven as an alternative to current thin-film WDM devices and as a mechanically robust alternative tomicroelectromechanical (MEMS) WDM devices. The device may be used in multiplexing (mux), demultiplexing (demux), or complete cross-switch configurations, and is ...

  2. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The team of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Ohio State University (OSU) proposes to develop and test a novel method for electrical production of singlet molecular oxygen for application to an atomic iodine transfer laser. OSU has developed a supersonic,low pressure discharge and applied it to flows of nitrogen with efficient excitation of the gas. They propose to use this method that tailors th ...

  3. Data Driven Damage Diagnosis and Prognosis

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is aimed at demonstrating the applicability of a method for data-based, online, real-time monitoring of machine health state and predicting imminent failures. The data driven prognostic system will be based on a new, general state-space basedapproach to parameter tracking in dynamical systems. This method is applicable to systems where the parameters drift at a slower rate than the o ...

  4. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Programs such as Airborne Laser and Space-Based Laser are in need of highly mass efficient structural materials to achieve system performance targets. This naturally leads to graphite fiber reinforced polymers for many system components. For someapplications, such as cryogen storage vessels, these materials are subject to micro cracking under little or no structural loading. New materials with ...

  5. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: Golden Helix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a prototype suite of recursive partitioning (RP) methodologies to provide advanced warning of failure, malfunction and/or performance degradation for Airborne Laser Program subsystems in service. Through better monitoring and analysisof the status of its systems, prediction of equipment life remaining can be made and corrective action taken to enhance the availability of the ...

  6. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: Pulsemetrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The Airborne Laser (ABL) weapon system is one key part of a Department of Defense (DoD) approach to defending against ballistic missiles. The ABL is interested in developing a prognostic system that is able to provide an accurate picture of faults,component degradation, and predictive indicators of failures that will allow the operators to take preventive maintenance actions to avoid costly or ca ...

  7. Design and Development of Radiation Hardened ROIC for Multi-color LWIR/VLWIR Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Radiation Hardened Multi-color infrared (IR) focal planes are required for MDA/SMDC systems applications . Key to meeting these system requirements is to develop multi-color radiation hardened HgCdTe focal plane arrays for LWIR band ( 7-14 microns) and VLWIR band with wavelength of greater than 14 microns with high pixel uniformity, reduced readout noise, improved resolution, and higher temperatur ...

  8. Development of HgCdTe Material Models for Next Generation Infrared Focal Plane Architectures

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Developments of multi-color FPA's are important for use in missile defense systems (such as GMD and THAAD) applications. Key to meeting these system requirements is development of multi-color HgCdTe focal plane arrays with high pixel uniformity, reducedreadout noise, improved resolution, and higher temperature of operation, to reduce cost and volume of these sensors and seekers.Magnolia Optical Te ...

  9. Full-spectrum Integrated Reaction Evaluation and Synthesis (FIRES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T017

    Highly energetic chemical processes play a central role in many military and commercial applications. For example, spectral emissions from missile plumes, arising from high-velocity chemical interactions of exhaust gases with the atmosphere, are used to detect, track, and identify threat targets. Detailed, quantitative knowledge of the energy-dependent chemical reaction cross sections and rates i ...

  10. 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 ...
