  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. Flight Deck Lighting Addressable Smart Control Modules

    SBC: NDI Engineering Company            Topic: N152086

    The Navy has developed an Advanced Flight Deck Lighting (AFDL) solution for DDG-1000. The AFDL is comprised of a suite of Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lights powered and controlled from lighting device drivers called "FLEXDRIVERS." The control panel communicates commands to the FLEXDRIVERS over a network. The FLEXDRIVERS are in a centralized location away from the lights. Each FLEXDRIVER must be ind ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
