  1. Development of Low-Cost Augmented Reality Head Mounted Display

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N09T031

    SA Photonics, in conjunction with our teammates at the University of Arizona, have developed LARS, the low-cost augmented reality system. This system is a see-through HMD used for training and simulation. LARS was designed using an innovative freeform prism combiner which is small, lightweight and has very little obscuration of the outside world. We have partnered with Rockwell Collins Optronics ( ...

  2. Visible Electro-Optical (EO) System and LIDAR Fusion for Low Cost Perception by Autonomous Ground Vehicles

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N11AT020

    The Toyon-MST team proposes to perform research and development of a system which fuses multi-spectral EO and 3D data collected with a low-cost LIDAR to enable improved perception for unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). The scope of the proposed work includes development of algorithms and software, and development, implementation, integration, testing, and delivery of a prototype, to perform EO-LIDAR ...

  3. Planar, High Frequency, Power Conversion Device Technology

    SBC: TRANSPHORM, INC.            Topic: N09T023

    Transphorm proposes to demonstrate a normally off fast high voltage Gallium Nitride power switch solution. The switch would block to 1200V, have a threshold voltage greater than 5 V, and the phase 2 switch will target an on resistance less than 15 ohm-mm and current more than 1 Amp. To accomplish these targets, Transphorm will combine the design requirements of realizing a high (and positive) thre ...

  4. Exact modeling of targets in littoral environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N09T026

    The US Navy needs the capability to model acoustic propagation in complex ocean environments containing natural or man-made objects. Such accurate modeling requires the solution of the wave equation in the ocean containing scatterers. In the absence of the scatterer, the oceanic waveguide can be assumed to be axially symmetric. This allows certain types of physically valid approximations to be mad ...

  5. Development of an EO/IR Common Aperture Modular Multifunction Sensor

    SBC: ULTIMARA INC.            Topic: N11AT024

    The goal of this program is to develop and fabricate an ultra-low Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) integrated electro-optic beam-steering technology that utilizes ultra-fast electro-optic active plasmonic waveguide arrays to achieve very wide scanning angle with diffraction limited beam quality. We develop a very scalable electro-optic plasmonic waveguides array that provides the electro-optic pha ...

  6. Coupled Viscous Vortex Particle Method and Unstructured CFD Solver for Rotorcraft Aerodynamic Interaction Modeling

    SBC: ADVANCED ROTORCRAFT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N09T009

    The rotorcraft aerodynamic interaction is a complicated problem and remains an extremely challenging aspect of rotorcraft analysis. This STTR is dedicated to developing a solution for the complicated rotorcraft aerodynamic interaction problem. The Phase I research coupled a state-of-the-art vortex particle method (VPM) with an unstructured Navier-Stokes CFD body surface solver and prototyped a hyb ...

  7. Wireless Torque Sensor for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: Albido Corporation            Topic: N11AT030

    In recent years, the need for highly reliable, durable and non-intrusive systems for monitoring the health condition of naval structures becomes more and more recognized. Of particular importance is the condition based maintenance of Navy rotating machinery (motors, generators, pumps, gear systems, etc.). Such Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) systems should be able to detect failures in their ea ...

  8. Tunable Polarization Insensitive Digital Fiber Optic Wavelength Converter with Built-In Test Capability

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: N08T012

    A fully functional widely tunable wavelength converter prototype operating from -40C to 100C at 2.5-10 Gbps, in a 5mm tall package, will be developed.

  9. Planar Doppler Velocimetry for Aircraft Exhausts

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: N11AT004

    A diagnostic is being developed for aircraft engine exhausts that measures three velocity components in a slice through the plume. The method measures the Doppler shift of laser light scattered from particles naturally present in the flow, such as soot or dust. Two key areas of uncertainty were investigated in the Phase I study: 1) scattered light intensity from soot particles of sizes and concent ...

  10. 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 ...
