  1. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF17AT005

    The objective of the proposed research is to demonstrate high-power, scalable, and stable laser sources at specific wavelengths with narrow linewidth matched to the single velocity class of mesospheric atomic sodium for guide star application. The operation at tailored wavelengths, 1141 nm and 1178 nm (for 589 nm via frequency doubling) is addressed by the use of bandgap-engineered optically pumpe ...

  2. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: TPhotonics Inc.            Topic: AF17AT005

    The purpose of this proposed research is to develop and commercialize a novel two color sodium guidestar laser operating simultaneously at 589 nm and 1141 nm. Our patented T-cavity design combined with VECSEL technology will be the basis for the guidestar development. The polychromatic laser guidestar (PLGS) system being proposed currently does not exist and would allow for the correction of atmos ...

  4. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  5. Biocatalytic production of precursors to lutein and zeaxanthin to address age related macular degeneration

    SBC: EscaZyme Biochemicals, LLC            Topic: N

    Project Summary Atrophic dry age related macular degeneration AMD is the leading cause of severe loss of vision for those over age Dietary supplements containing lutein and zeaxanthin are recommended by the NEI for those at risk of late AMD There has been a corresponding growth in demand for these two xanthophylls Lutein and zeaxanthin are currently sourced from marigolds grown mostl ...

  8. Coordination and Performance Metrics in Command and Control Environments

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT09

    Measurement of coordination and performance in team training environments is essential for accurately evaluating training effectiveness and progress. Coordination and performance are tightly coupled. As coordination improves, team performance improves. As command and control systems become larger and more complex, measurement of performance and coordination becomes increasingly difficult. This Pha ...

  9. Development of an Efficient Flutter and Limit Cycle Oscillation Predictive Tool

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF14AT04

    ABSTRACT: Several current fighter aircraft with external store configurations persistently encounter Limit Cycle Oscillation (LCO) problems. A fast and accurate aeroelastic prediction is required to identify the critical LCO configurations given the massive number of aircraft with store combinations short-time frame demanded by rapid military responses when facing todays ever-changing internation ...
