  1. 1.55 Micron High Peak Power Fiber Amplifier

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S101

    In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a 1.55 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber amplifier by developing an innovative Er-doped gain fiber with large core diameter and high gain per unit length. 1.55 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber amplifier is needed for coherent lidar and sensing. In Phase I, we will design and fabricate thi ...

  2. A Structurally-Integrated Ice Detection and De-Icing System for Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: S308

    Unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) are becoming more prevalent for Suborbital Scientific Earth Exploration, which often involves high altitude, long endurance flight missions. Extreme environmental conditions, especially involving sub-freezing temperatures (e.g. polar missions in support of the U.S. Global Change Research Program), can lead to the accretion of ice on control surfaces and jeopardize bot ...

  3. A UAS-ATC Simulation Test-Bed

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: A501

    The proposed solution is to create a high fidelity simulation environment that merges a UAS ground control station (GCS) simulator with an air traffic control (ATC) simulator. The UAS GCS station will have the capability of introducing a single UAS or multiple UASs simulator operated by a single and/or multiple UAS pilots into the ATC. This simulation will have the ability to simulate manned aircr ...

  8. Dual-Band EUV Multilayer Coatings for Solar Physics

    SBC: Reflective X-ray Optics, LLC            Topic: S204

    We propose to develop and commercialize a new class of multilayer interference coating that is designed to provide high reflection efficiency in two disparate wavelength bands in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV), a so-called 'dual-band' EUV multilayer. A high-performance dual-band multilayer coating will allow for solar imaging or spectroscopy instruments that operate in two different EUV ...

  10. Electron Kinetics in Hypersonic Plasmas

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A206

    The goal of this SBIR project is to advance the state-of-the-art in computations of hypersonic plasmas by adding high-fidelity kinetic models for electrons. Electron kinetics affects plasma-chemical reactions and nonequilibrium radiation, which are important for designing hypersonic vehicles. We will develop adaptive multi-scale models for electrons applicable for hypersonic flows in rarefied and ...
