  1. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    HPM (high power microwave) weapons could disable vehicles, enable vehicle recovery, and reduce collateral damage. Metamagnetics, in partnership with Professor Jane Lehr (University of New Mexico), and General Atomics propose a completely solid-state HPM system based on their work in Gyromagnetic Nonlinear Transmission Lines (gNLTL) and compact High-Gain Slotted Waveguide Antennas. The system will ...

  2. Catastrophic Optical Damage Mitigation in Quantum Cascade Lasers by Facet Disordering

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    Quantum cascade laser optical output power is limited by laser facet catastrophic optical damage (COD). In edge-emitting semiconductor lasers COD is a thermal runaway process wherein the front facet of the laser heats under high power operation. This facet heating reduces the semiconductor bandgap which increases the optical absorption and also increases the electrical injection current in the fac ...

  3. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    In this program, we will develop solutions to optimize QCL fabrication processes, such as facet passivation and high thermal conductivity coatings, that will mitigate the reliability issues for high power QCL applications. In phase I, we will first evaluate all concepts and efforts that have been largely investigated for GaAs based high power diode lasers and transfer the knowledge to InP based QC ...

  4. Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integrated Wavelength Beam Combining

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: N19AT005

    Pendar Technologies proposes to develop the next generation of compact, high power quantum cascade laser (QCL) sources with output power exceeding 10 Watts at a wavelength of 4.6 microns. The proposed subsystem will include a DFB QCL array integrated monolithically with power amplifiers, low-loss passive waveguides resulting from ion implantation and optical elements aimed at realizing on-chip wav ...

  5. Power-Dense Electrostatic Rotating Machines

    SBC: C-Motive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT007

    Next-generation naval ships will require electric machinery with at least 50% greater power density than is available today. Such machines must deliver up to 10s of MW at 100-200 rpm with very high energy efficiency, extremely low noise signature, and reasonable cost. Electrostatic machine technology is often overlooked but is perfectly suited to achieving these goals. C-Motive Technologies propos ...

  6. 3-Band Picosecond High Energy Compact Laser System

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: N19AT009

    The Navy seeks technology that is oriented toward a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of marine turbulence and laser light propagation in the marine boundary. Current measurement techniques, such as Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) technique, are limited to resolutions of 0.5 meters or greater and fall short of the required millimeter level resolution. A new type of spectral imaging modal ...

  7. Unified Logging Architecture for Performance and Cybersecurity Monitoring

    SBC: ALTRON, INC.            Topic: N19AT012

    Numerous Government Agencies and Commercial Organizations are dependent on mission critical ecosystems (ie federated systems of systems). There are generally multiple systems of systems using various technologies that are difficult to integrate and monitor. They face challenges aggregating all of the subsystem data including the system and application logs, events, and alerts into one central data ...

  8. Propagation Established through Autonomous Raman Lidar (PEARL)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N19AT015

    Accurate characterization of and propagation modeling through the Marine Boundary Layer is critical for maximizing Electro-Magnetic (EM) systems signal exploitation for naval asset offensive, defensive, and stealth operational performance. Strong temperature and humidity gradients in the Surface Boundary Layer lead to optical paths exhibiting Electro-Optic Infrared (EOIR) anomalous refraction and ...

  9. Joint User-centered Planning artificial Intelligence Tools for Effective mission Reasoning (JUPITER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Effective mission planning is critical for military strategy and execution. This process is complex as human operators must consider many variables (e.g., resource limitations, threats, risks) when formulating a plan to accomplish mission goals. Although powerful tools, such as the Navys Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS), provide advanced functionality, mission planning remains a hybrid activit ...

  10. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N19BT030

    Triton Systems proposes to develop a process to synthesize water filled microcapsules that are able to contain the water in the microcapsules for extended (years) periods of time. We will develop accelerated aging tests to measure the water loss over the equivalent of 20 years of more. We will also measure the mechanical strength of the microcapsules before and during exposure to jet fuel, and whe ...
