  2. Conformal Thermal Ground Plane for Fiber Amplifier

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF131013

    ABSTRACT: In response to the U.S. Air Force"s need for fiber cooling and pointing in high power fiber amplifiers of 1kW and up, i2C Solutions propose the development of a conformal thermal ground plane (TGP) technology to interface with heat sinks integrated into the active precision pointing fiber support structure. The result is a highly efficient thermal management solution, with respect to b ...

  3. Ka-band Satellite Phased Array Antenna

    SBC: Innovative Technology, Inc            Topic: AF131079

    ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses an important need of DoD and MILSATCOM for satellite based receivers operating at Ka-Band having multiple beams (as many as 30) capability. Many of these beams need to be independently steered. This has traditionally been a major challenge because, as will be shown, the architectures that are required are very component intensive, which has made such antenna sys ...

  4. Mode Adapting Etched Air Taper Fiber Optic Pump Combiner

    SBC: Optical Engines, Inc            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: The Etched Air Taper Combiner as fist proposed by the US Air Force Academy has the advantages in that the input fiber bundle, the combining section, and the output to the gain fiber can be individually improved and optimized and then the components are spliced together to create the finished device. Pump efficiencies of over 96% and power handling capabilities of 1.5kW have been demons ...

  5. Conformal Laser Weapon System Beam Director Development (CLAWS-BDD)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF131012

    ABSTRACT: Nutronics, Inc. proposes to develop a detailed conceptual design for a general purpose, rugged, compact and lightweight beam director design for high energy laser phased array weapon systems. Our expertise in target based phase measurement approaches provides us with a unique insight into the basic requirements of both the subaperture for a phased array weapon system beam director and ...

  6. Characterizing the Impact of Ionospheric Wave Structures on Coordinate Registration.

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF131094

    ABSTRACT: The DoD requires accurate real-time knowledge of ionospheric variability in order to reduce one of the biggest error sources inherent in the use of critical systems such as Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR). OTHR is particularly susceptible to traveling ionospheric disturbances (TID"s) which are underspecified by current methods. Consequently, OTHR target location errors can reach 10s-100 k ...

  7. Speedy Sparse Bundle Adjustment for Video/Image Sequences

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF131151

    ABSTRACT: VSI proposes a flexible sensor estimation framework for airborne calibration processing of image streams over long time periods. The components of the framework will consist of existing software and libraries. The plugin-based framework provides flexibility to switch the components easily. The core of the framework is a belief propagation engine to globally optimize the sensor parameter ...

  8. Small Satellite-based System for Active and Passive Sounding of the Ionosphere DC-HF

    SBC: Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates, L.L.C.            Topic: AF121064

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force and other DoD organizations require accurate knowledge of the ionospheric environment to understand and predict its impacts on vital radio-based systems, including communications, navigation, and surveillance systems. The DoD has placed requirements in the IORD-II document for measurements of the ionosphere that include specification of ionospheric properties such as elect ...

  9. Cooperative Networked GPS signal acquisition

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: AF131062

    ABSTRACT: The biggest demand on a military receiver has been from the time required to search and acquire for the military signals when an accurate internal time reference is not available. Prior research by NAVSYS into network assisted GPS approaches used the JTRS network itself to transfer time from another GPS receiver to reduce the initial time uncertainty and speed the acquisition time. This ...

  10. Ka-band Satellite Phased Array Antenna

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: AF131079

    ABSTRACT: Future SATCOM payload antennas need to provide much greater spot beam control flexibility. Currently deployed systems utilize phased array fed dishes limiting the number of spot beams and gain since earth coverage is accomplished by limiting the number of beamwidths scanned. The solution proposed is a direct illumination phased array that is scaleable for very high gain. Greater than 30 ...
