  3. Novel Nanomaterials for Environmental Protection of Special Operations Divers

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09001

    Environmental protection is a critical need for special operations forces which dive in cold water during their missions. Thermally protective diving suit must be able to provide significant thermal barriers as well as withstand high compressive loads when underwater. Current diver wet suits and dry suits are limited by their materials of construction in the degree of thermal protection they can ...

  4. Low Visibility Decoy Flare

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: SOCOM09002

    Low visibility rotary aircraft decoys are needed to protect vehicles against heat seeking missile attacks without illuminating the target which exposes the aircraft to small arms fire and potentially compromising the mission. The novel approach to this challenge is to produce a decoy which emits only in the bands of interest utilizing techniques such as containment and composition selection to op ...

  7. Visible Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Spatial Light Modulators

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There are many applications for hyperspectral image detectors, but for the detectors to be widely accepted standardized calibration protocols must be developed. This research aims to bridge this gap through the development of a commercially available hyperspectral image projector (HIP) system. The proposed effort is to build a prototype visible HIP system to generate calibrated, realistic imagery ...

  9. Development of Broadband VIPAs in Mid-to Long Infrared

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA designs do not work in the spectroscopically important mid- and long-infrared wavelengths, and do not have large operating bandwidths compatible with femtosecond combs. Incorporating resolution improvements from ...
