  1. Compact Air-cooled Laser Modulate-able Source (CALMS)

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N152121

    Navy needs UVA laser modules with three wavelengths with >3W fiber coupled power output. Princeton Optronics proposes a frequency doubling approach which they use for high efficiency frequency doubling of VCSEL output. This would work at UVA wavelengths with PPLN and LBO materials as frequency doublers. In phase I, Princeton Optronics wants to demonstrate frequency doubling at 400nm wavelength and ...

  3. High-Energy, Long-Life Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N152093

    Batteries with multi-electron redox materials offer promise for increased performance relative to state of the art lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries have two electron cathode materials (in addition to a lithium metal anode) and better than two times the specific energy of Li-ion batteries.However, several issues have prevented Li-S batteries from becoming more commercially via ...

  4. Carbon Fiber Composite Insulator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA15020

    A multifunctional improved thermal protection system (TPS) is proposed to reduce weight and to incorporate electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and lightning strike protection. TDA has previously done proof-of-concept studies with a heavily modified carbon fiberphenolic TPS. Our material is mechanically robust and exceedingly simple to manufacture. In this project, we will incorporate EMI ...

  5. Low Light Short Wave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: MDA15022

    Current large format focal plane array (FPA) imaging sensors for imaging in low-light conditions in the near infrared / short wavelength infrared (NIR/SWIR) regions are limited by poor signal-to-noise. Electron avalanche photodiodes (e-APDs) using HgCdTe provide internal gain with very little excess noise and allow high signal-to-noise in low-light conditions. Cooling the e-APD SWIR FPA to 77K red ...

  6. Mycotoxin Adsorption with Hemocompatible Porous Polymer Beads

    SBC: CytoSorbents Medical Inc.            Topic: CBD152003

    Acute exposure to mycotoxins can lead to systemic toxicity and even death. With no specific treatment available, aflatoxin and trichothecene T-2toxin, in particular, are of concern as potential biological weapons due to their toxicity, thermal and UV stability and easy accessibility. As amedical countermeasure, we propose the development of highly porous polymer beads optimized for removal of afla ...

  7. Innovative Technologies for Detection and Discrimination of Surface and Buried Explosive Hazards

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: A15108

    Detecting buried in road or roadside explosive threats is a major problem facing the Army on todays battlefield. Recent studies have shown that Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) imaging polarimeters can detect these threats; however, the implementation of the polarimeters has not been traceable to a ruggedized, field ready imaging system. Guidestar Optical Systems proposes to develop an imaging LWIR polar ...

  8. Improved Track Accuracy for Missile Engagements

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: MDA15008

    "Efficient acquisition, tracking, and discrimination of threatening objects by geographically dispersed sensors are dependent on precise tracking and sensing of missile defense systems. These systems require state-of-the-art radar processing, antennas, and RF systems.The objective, simply stated, is to provide a sensor system with the ability to acquire and track fast moving targets at extended ra ...

  9. Inline Threat Generation for Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Eaxact Solution Scientific Consulting LLC            Topic: MDA15012

    Current simulation architecture relies heavily on pre-generated data in the form of look up tables.This paradigm is costly, time consuming and inflexible.Data for trajectories and signatures is generated off line then loaded into a simulation environment.This allows one to vary sensor locations and evaluate the effectiveness of missile defense for different blue force configurations.However, any c ...

  10. High Power Photonic WireFiber Laser Tap Couplers for Phase and Polarization Control

    SBC: OPTICAL ENGINES, INC            Topic: MDA15015

    Through years of experience developing low loss fiber pump combiners operating to multi kW levels,Optical Engines has mastered the technology for producing fiber optic tapers with precise dimensions and very low loss.This technology allows for the transition to tapers in the Photonic wire region where the fiber core dimensions are much less than 10um and the mode field diameter (MFD) becomes very ...
