  1. High Speed Polarization Modulation of Microcavity Lasers for Laser Radar (LADAR) Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: ST092003

    A need exists for polarization interrogating and discriminating Ladar systems to detect and discriminate defilade targets. In the proposed effort, Aerius, and our partner at the University of Illinois, will apply photonic crystal technology to extend Aerius’ high power, high wall plug efficiency, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) results to develop a stable polarization switched VC ...

  2. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: ST092005

    Small satellites working in coordinated manner as part of a distributed constellation hold the promise to revolutionize DoD space operations. However, small satellites also have significant inherent limitations. Their size limits the types of sensors that they can accommodate. It also limits propulsion, power generation and attitude control capabilities. One way of overcoming some of these lim ...

  3. Novel Methods for Sensor Quieting in Turbulent Flows

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: ST092004

    The Progeny – University of Utah team proposes a new approach for flow noise reduction to improve acoustic sensor performance. Our proposal is to investigate the ability of controlling the turbulent flow by utilizing acceleration which makes the flow locally laminar. Our proposed method of achieving acceleration is to send the flow around a concave surface, by adding a “two-dimensional bump ...

  4. Applications of Computational Command Leadership AI Models (ACCLAIM)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST092002

    A military without good leadership is a mob. Identification, preparation, guidance and mentoring of potential leaders are critical functions across all services. Leadership training and support can be substantially improved by refinement of theories and models on what constitutes good leadership, and what enables individual to be effective leaders. DoD needs better models of how leaders learn, ...

  5. Polarization switching VCSEL (P-VCSEL)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: ST092003

    Ziva Corporation in collaboration with UCSB will assess the feasibility of developing a directly modulated polarization switching laser based on the Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) geometry with a 3dB frequency of at least 10 GHz. This will be a major breakthrough in the ability to cost effectively fabricate directly modulated lasers (even in 2-D arrays) with polarization diversity ...

  6. New Thruster for Proliferated Satellites Has More Force and Longer Life

    SBC: The Granville Group Inc.            Topic: ST092005

    Granville has designed a new satellite/spacecraft propulsion engine, GREP, delivering over 100.mN/1.0 kW of force from strong electromagnetic energy… more force magnitude and efficiency than existing propellant limited ion thrusters. And, because it uses renewable power from on-board solar/electric panels, GREP offers extended propulsion maneuver life, up to 15 years or more, substantially lon ...

  7. Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments

    SBC: MacroCognition, LLC            Topic: ST092002

    We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...

  8. Compact Integrated Silicon Nitride Microresonator Accelerometer

    SBC: APPLIED OPTRONICS CORP            Topic: ST13A002

    To solve the DARPA need for high-performance MEMS-based optomechanical accelerometers, Applied Optronics proposes to develop a Compact Integrated Silicon Nitride Microresonator Accelerometer (OPTIMA), which is based on a combination of a high-Q silicon ni

  9. Generation and amplification of gravitational waves for military communications

    SBC: SLS, LLC            Topic: ST13A003

    We propose a gravitational-radiation military communications system which is based on quantum-mechanical parametric amplifiers, oscillators, and transducers. In the transmitter at a remote site A, a parametric amplifier using a Planck-mass-scale, moving s

  10. Development of Gravitational Radiation Technology for Military Applications

    SBC: SCIX3 LLC            Topic: ST13A003

    Gravitational radiation is detected by its effect of rotating the polarization vectors of a high number N of entangled photons exhibiting quantum nonlinear geometric phase and the Klyshko effect for NOON states in a Michelson interferometer. The gravitati
