  1. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: AF151050

    LWIR is well suited for free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, precipitation, and fog. Due to recent developments of QCLs, the technology is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system. However, a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors for the high-speed receiver is needed. The specifics of the LWIR ...

  2. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: AF151132

    Infrared devices fabricated using III-V strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials have many advantages over present state-of-the-art HgCdTe detectors, e.g., cost, manufacturability, operability, and theoretically lower Auger generation rates. However, due to the presence of inherent growth related defects the SLS materials have not achieved full potential. While growth improvements are anticipat ...

  6. Improved Life Prediction of Turbine Engine Components

    SBC: PEREGRINE CONSULTING, INC.            Topic: AF03112

    The purpose of the proposed Phase II research is to develop a prototype of the TFLAMES core software model. This model and attendant sub-routines will make it possible to calculate the stress and life of each individual engine component using actual flight data in near-real time, replacing the current method of using analysis of generic missions and bookkeeping Total Accumulated Cycles (TAC). In ...

  7. Novel Flame and Impact Resistant Foam Core

    SBC: Tex Tech Industries Inc.            Topic: AF03122

    Our country is now faced with new challenging terrorist threats to our civil infrastructure and transportation segments. Meeting these challenges will require high performance material developments on a grand scale, which have the capability of meeting minimum ballistic requirements from handgun threats and the containment of high velocity fragments from the use of explosive devices. In Phase I a ...

  9. WEIGHING TRUCK COMBINATIONS IN MOTION, SOLELY ON THE TRACTOR

    SBC: Airsport Corp.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPROVED METHOD OF WEIGHING TRUCKS WHILE IN MOTION IS PROPOSED. TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE TIME LOST AT WEIGH STATIONS, THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY NEEDS TO EXCHANGE DATA, INCLUDING WEIGHT DATA, BETWEEN MOVING TRUCKS AND ENFORCEMENT FACILITIES. LEGALLY LOADED TRUCKS WOULD THEN BE ABLE TO PROCEED WITHOUT STOPPING. THIS INVOLVES WEIGH-IN-MOTION. PRESENT WEIGHING TECHNIQUES INVOLVE LOAD CELLS OR ...

  10. Fiber Optic Raman Sensors for the Remote Determination of Composite Chemical Characteristics

    SBC: ADVANCED PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will investigate the use of Laser Raman Infra-Red Fiber Optic Sensor to remotely determine the chemical characteristics of advanced composite materials. The proposed research will investigate a means to measure and manage the composition and cure state of the resin matrix during an autoclave or repair process. Fourier transform Raman spectroscopy using near infrared excitation (1064 n ...
