  1. 2-Dimensional Phase Controlled Coherent VCSEL Arrays for Military Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N11AT024

    Aerius Photonics and the University of Illinois propose to develop a large two-dimensional coherently coupled Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) array that will enable phase controlled operation, providing a building block for electronic steering of optical beam outputs with no mechanical parts. In Phase I, the program team will design the array including epitaxial layers, VCSEL array ...

  2. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...

  3. Adaptable Sensor Processing for Passive Targets Using Neuro

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: N/A

    Work to be performed in this program is based upon years of innovative technology development invested by personnel at Nova Research. Techniques proposed here are patterned after biological principles which, when applied to finding targets which are moving against highly cluttered infrared backgrounds, will be shown to exhibit remarkable performance. Sensor and data fusion techniques may ...

  4. Adaptive Optics controlled nonlinear propagation of USLP

    SBC: ADVANCED SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N17AT024

    Filamentation of ultra-short laser pulse propagation in non-linear media offers significant potentials allowing to address numerous problems in military and commercial sectors. However, practical implementation of this requires an ability to control the USLP at its propagation through inhomogeneous media, like turbulent atmosphere. On the basis of our approach for combating turbulence effects on p ...

  5. Adaptive Optics for Nonlinear Atmospheric Propagation of Laser Pulses

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N17AT024

    Ultra-short pulse lasers have advantages over continuous-wave lasers for directed-energy applications due to the high peak powers that can be reached. Directed-energy weapons are profoundly limited by the aberrations caused by atmospheric turbulence and current adaptive optics can correct for these aberrations only when the propagation medium is reciprocal. Unfortunately, nonlinear effects in the ...

  6. Advanced Wake Turbulence Modeling for Naval CFD Applications

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N15AT002

    Predicting the high Reynolds number viscous turbulent flow around realistic aircraft, rotorcraft and ship geometries with CFD is time consuming and computationally expensive, with the number of cells required to resolve the flow driving the computational cost. Even with modern CFD methods, the cost of adequately resolved solutions is prohibitive for most engineering tasks. The team of Continuum ...

  7. Advanced-Architecture Compressor/Expanders for Energy Storage Applications

    SBC: Bright Energy Storage Technologies, LLP            Topic: N11AT028

    Bright Energy Storage Technologies and the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory at Colorado State University propose to demonstrate the feasibility of a custom reversible compressor design for use in compressed air energy storage systems. The design proposed combines a very lightweight rotary compressor design with extremely high flow volumes, allowing a highly efficient device at extremely lo ...

  8. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  9. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N15AT014

    SA Photonics has developed a concept for our Multiple Optical Beam Landing System (MOBLS) to provide autonomous landing of aircraft in RF denied environments. MOBLS utilizes multiple, redundant methods to determine the real-time location and bearing of the aircraft relative to the carrier-based landing strip. By having built in redundant modalities, MOBLS provides highly reliable landing informati ...

  10. Body-worn Wireless Physiological Monitoring Network

    SBC: Cognionics, Inc.            Topic: N13AT021

    This STTR Phase II proposal continues our work towards building a simple, high quality and unobtrusive mobile physiological sensor platform. The capabilities of the Phase I prototype will be expanded by adding sensors to further acquire SpO2 and respiration in addition to forming a body area network for data collection across multiple points on a subjects body. A software infrastructure will also ...
