  1. Graded-Composition Refractory Coatings for Protection of Cu-Rails for Electromagnetic Launchers

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    The Navy is developing an electromagnetic (EM) launcher for long-range naval surface-fire-support. Severe operating conditions of the EM system place stringent requirements for materials, including high current and magnetic fields, high temperatures, contact with liquid metals, high stress/gouging from balloting contacts and high-speed-sliding electrical-contact with an Al armature. Engineered Coa ...

  2. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...

  3. Photonic Switched True Time Delay (TTD) Beam Forming Network

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: N08T007

    Photonic links and networks offer numerous advantages to analog RF systems including inherent wide bandwidth, a reduced size, weight and improved flexibility, and nearly lossless signal. Current all-electronic delay line systems based on microwave components suffer from high signal loss and dispersion as well as large size and weight. An efficient way to achieve true-time-delay beamforming is to u ...

  4. Refractory Metal Coating for Electromagnetic Launcher Rails

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N10AT025

    Electromagnetic launchers or rail guns are a key component of the Navy’s all-electric ship of the future, but they lack the durability required for repeated firings. TDA Research and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) are developing a tough, durable and conductive refractory metal coating that will protect the copper alloy conductors (rails) from the extreme heat and wear conditions inside the ...
