  3. Photonic Multi-Beam Receive-Only Arrays

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA10026

    We propose to define a dynamically reconfigurable photonics-based system to efficiently collect, down-convert, distribute, and selectively combine the return signals from multiple array elements to a set of digital processors. Electronic signals from the array elements will modulate optical carrier signals. With an appropriate choice of optical carrier signal and photonic architecture, the signals ...

  8. Development of transonic and supersonic turret design methods for improved optical and aerodynamic performance

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF103001

    The development of airborne High-Energy Laser (HEL) systems is currently receiving a high level of research effort. There is growing evidence that spherical turrets are not ideal mounting platforms for HEL systems because they are highly susceptible to flows that produce strong optical aberrations such as shocks and separated-flow regions. The objective of the proposed research is to investigate i ...
