  1. 20 GHz Low Voltage Linear Laser Modulator for RF Distribution

    SBC: IPITEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IPITEK proposes a novel low-voltage, low-loss 20 GHz continuous bandwidth electro-optic modulator based on nonlinear optical (NLO) polymer materials. The proposed approach will be based IPITEK's recent experimental success in achieving 0.8 V halfwavevoltage, and insertion loss reduction techniques that considerably improved light throughput. Optical push-pull will be used to reduce the half-wave ...

  4. 4-D MW/LW IR Hyperspectral Sensor

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The emergence of dual band IRFPAs opens the opportunity for development of hyperspectral sensors that simultaneously cover both the MWIR and LWIR spectral range. To address the specific issue related to hyperspectral imaging of time-dependent events suchas rocket engine firing, OKSI is proposing a novel design of a sensor called the 4D-IS (4-dimensional Imaging Spectrometer) that is capable of ca ...

  6. A Comprehensive Rapid-Assessment-of- Flutter/Ejection-Loads (RAFEL) Software System for Aircraft /Store Compatibility

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    For aircraft /store compatibility, a comprehensive software system requested by the Air Force for rapid assessment of flutter and ejection loads (RAFEL) poses challenging requirements. With ZAERO aeroelastic software as a base, ZONA can establish a RAFELsystem satisfying all AF's requirements. Specifically, ZONA will develop RAFEL in Phase I with: a) solution accuracy with flutter solution robustn ...

  7. A CSEA Approach to Active Noise and Vibration Control

    SBC: ACENTECH INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Active noise and vibration control (ANVC) has not lived up to its promise. Attempts in the 1930's had little success because of inability to control the phase in electronics and transducers. Digital processing appeared to offer a solution for dealingwith phase and arriving at algorithms of a complexity that could not be realized by analog systems. There are applications where ANVC has achieved ...

  8. A Decision Aid for a Surveillance Satellite Crew Shift Supervisor

    SBC: CHI SYSTEMS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    To be effective in today's threat environment, the Air Force's Global Engagement doctrine asserts that personnel be responsive, innovative, adaptable, and agile. This will be particularly important for the Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Low CrewChief. The SBIRS Low Crew Chief will have to manage a team with frequently changing personnel, groups of personnel with different specializations, a ...
