  4. High Speed, Watt Class Multi-access Modulators for Airborne and Spaceborne Communications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF103096

    ABSTRACT: In order to achieve high data transmission rates (>40Gbps), it is necessary to use external modulators as direct diode modulation can be limited by chirping, parasitics or microwave effects. Traditional amplitude modulation is done with Mach Zehnder Interferometers or directional couplers. Unfortunately, this technology is not multi-access compatible without the introduction of multipl ...

  5. Robust Bearings and Gears


    Critical gears and engine bearings in our newest vertical thrust aircraft must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat, corrosive salt air and intervals without any lubricant whatever. Current materials and coatings that meet some of these conditions fail when subjected to the others. Now a breakthrough in surface engineering technology can precisely control deposition of c ...

  6. A Miniature, High-Fidelity Imaging Spectrometer

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: AF04228

    The role of Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the military is growing rapidly and advances in technology are allowing the UAVs to become smaller, lighter, and carry more sophisticated sensors and instrumentation. While the use of hyperspectral imagers aboard UAVs has been shown to possess great potential for target acquisition and battlefield intelligence gathering, current hyperspectral syst ...
