  1. III-V Based Focal Plane Arrays for Video-Rate Terahertz Imaging

    SBC: TRAYCER DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T006

    Owing to a unique set of intellectual property and core expertise, this Phase II team, led by Traycer Diagnostic Systems, will build and characterize a packaged, 16x16 terahertz focal plane array (FPA) for broadband video-rate imaging at frequencies up to 1.3 THz. Traycer’s competitive advantage is based on its record-performing detectors, novel antennas, and array architectures that permit a d ...

  2. Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth Atmosphere

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF08T019

    The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, real gas effects, nonequilibrium chemistry, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with automatic domain decomposition for a wide range of Air Force applic ...

  3. Scalable technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride

    SBC: Soraa            Topic: AF08BT20

    We propose to demonstrate and advance several key aspects of our novel, scalable ammonothermal technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride. Specifically, we propose to demonstrate a high growth rate and high crystalline quality, to design and analyze a pilot-scale reactor, and to construct and validate a quantitative model to describe the fluid dynamics of the growth envi ...

  4. High-order modeling of applied multi-physics phenomena

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF08T023

    The gap between research in numerical methods and popular commercial solvers in CFD and related areas has been gradually widening in the recent past, particularly in the realm of high order accurate algorithms. At HyPerComp we are advancing a suite of high order codes based on the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) technique that can be used in electromagnetics, fluid mechanics, MHD and radiative heat tr ...

  5. Efficient Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF08T020

    Radiative heat transfer is a dominant mode of heat transfer in combustion and propulsion systems as well as for hypersonic flow encountered during planetary entry. Solution of the Radiative Transfer Equation (RTE), which is an integro-differential equation, places stringent requirements on the computational resources as: (a) the radiation depends both on spatial and angular dimensions, (b) radiati ...

  6. Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery Apparatus (MAVTRAP)

    SBC: Innovative Automation Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF08T014

    Our team proposes to develop, test, and commercialize a Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery APparatus (MAVTRAP). This system operates by deploying an instrumented MAV capture device attached via a tether system from a mothership unmanned air vehicle (UAV). The instrumented MAV capture device contains an integrated avionics suite. Our team will determine and control the precise mother ship UAV loi ...

  7. Diffusion Geometry Based Nonlinear Methods for Hyperspectral Change Detection

    SBC: Plain Sight Systems Inc            Topic: AF08BT24

    We propose a suite of nonlinear image processing algorithms derived from the analysis of the underlying diffusion geometry of a collection of hyperspectral images of interest. These tools enable the comparison of spatio-spectral features of hyperspectral images acquired under different conditions, for the purposes of target detection, change detection and anomaly assessment. This methodology also ...

  8. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...

  9. Massively Parallel Micromachining with Ultrafast Lasers

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF08T029

    We are proposing to develop a highly parallel, rapid prototyping system for the manufacture of microfluidic devices. In this phase II proposal we will build a complete system for making such devices for continued research on fieldable microfluidic systems for use in the military, and in hospitals. The project will also allow manufacturing in widely different materials, and structures, without an ...
