  1. ULTRAVIOLET WAVEGUIDE LASERS FOR PHASED ARRAY LIDAR

    SBC: Potomac Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PROOF OF PRINCIPLE EXPERIMENT IS BEING CONSTRUCTED THAT WILL CLEARLYDEMONSTRATE THE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF ARRAY OPERATION. AN OSCILLATOR AND TWO AMPLIFIER SECTIONS ARE BEING SUBJECTED TO PERFORMANCE TESTS. PHASE ARRAY OPTICAL RADARS OR LIDARS OPERATING WITH RELATIVELY LARGE SYNTHETIC APERTURES CAN EXHIBIT MANY OF THE SAME RAPID POINTING AND TRACKING FEATURES ASSOCIATED WITH MICROWAVE SYSTEMS, AN ...

  2. META COMPILER FOR VERY HIGH LEVEL LANGUAGE IN BATTLE MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Space Tech Corp            Topic: N/A

    ANY VERY HIGH LEVEL LANGUAGE (VHLL) FOR STRATEGIC DEFENSE REQUIRES A COMPILER. NEW META COMPILERS USING ADVANCED ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE METHODS ARE BEING STUDIED SO THAT EVENTUAL VHLL APPLICATION SOFTWARE CAN BE EFFECTIVELY PORTED TO THE SEVERAL GROUND-BASED/SATELLITE-BASED MACHINES. TO DO SO REQUIRES A META COMPILER THAT CAN COMPILE CODE TO DIVERSE ARCHITECTURES. RESEARCH WITH META COMPILERS DEM ...

  3. MICROSTACK INSULATOR FOR HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC OR CERAMIC INSULATORS CONVENTIONALLY ARE BEING USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS. NEW APPROACHES ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD REDUCE INSULATORS RING THICKNESSES AND INCREASE CORRESPONDING GRADING RINGS FLASHOVER VOLTAGE. SUCH AN APPROACH WOULD POSSESS IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL INSULATORS: HIGHER SURFACE FLASHOVER FIELD STRENGTH; SMALLER PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS FOR EQUIVALENT VOLTAGE HOLDOFF; ...

  4. HIGH POWER LOW IMPEDANCE LIGHT WEIGHT TRANSMISSION LINES

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH POWER, LOW IMPEDANCE, LIGHTWEIGHT ENERGY STORAGE TRANSMISSION LINES FOR PULSE-POWER APPLICATIONS IS CRUCIAL FORSMALLER, LIGHTWEIGHT, SPACE-BASED, PULSE-POWER SYSTEMS. DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH DIELECTRIC ENERGY STORAGE LINE TECHNOLOGY WOULD GREATLY REDUCETHE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COMPLEXITY OF PULSE POWER SYSTEMS UTILIZING THESE TYPES OF COMPONENTS. EFFICIENT TRANSPORT OF 400KV, 100K ...

  5. CONTROLLERS FOR SPACE STRUCTURES

    SBC: MCMURDO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE UNPRECEDENTED POINTING AND TRACKING ACCURACIES REQUIRED IN STRATEGIC DEFENSE ENGAGEMENT SCENARIOS PRESENT FORMIDABLE CHALLENGES TO THE DESIGNERS OF PLATFORM CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR SLEWING AND VIBRATIONSUPPRESSION. IT IS CLEAR THAT CONVENTIONAL DESIGN PROCEDURES BASED ONFINITE DIMENSIONAL, LUMPED PARAMETER MODELS (FINITE ELEMENTS OR MODES)ARE INADEQUATE TO THE TASK. ADVANCED DESIGN METHODS ARE BEI ...

  6. High Temperature Optoelectronics

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are no commercial amplifiers that can operate at temperatures above 125 degrees Celsius. We will combine two comparable wide bandgap semiconducting materials to make electronic amplifiers and switches that operate at high temperatures (at least 500 degrees Celsius). These devices can be controlled remotely by a light beam. Hence wireless coupling to a room temperature macroprocessor is possi ...

  7. CdTe:V and CdTe:Ge for Homodyne Optical Detection at 1.06um

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    A light induced phase grating in photorefractive crystals couple the optical fields of the pump and signals beam in a very similar way as a beam splitter combines the signal and local optical fields in a coherent optical communications receiver. The advantages of photorefractive crystals are: 1) the absence of 3db loss in the output intensity of the signal beam unlike in the case of 50/50 beam spl ...

  8. Capillary Discharge X-Ray Laser Driver

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    A compact x-ray laser driver with a high repetition rate is the subject of this phase I project. Most existing x-ray laser drivers are huge (1000s of square feet of floor space), expensive ($10,000,000+), have a low repetition rate (1/hr), are complex and require several PhDs to keep them working. Thus applications of present x-ray lasers are limited. In contrast, the proposed laser will occupy on ...

  9. Broad Bandwidth Beam Benders and Short Focal Length Aperture Optics

    SBC: PHYSITRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Although there have been many advances in optics for low energy x-rays, (

  10. Micro Disk Systems for Inertial Sensing and Optical Beam Control

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Sarcos is currently developing a technology that can lead to low-cost millimeter-scale gyroscopes, multi axis inertial sensors, and very compact laser scanning devices. This technology, called Micro Disk Systems (MDS), is based on levitating a small disk above a VLSI substrate using electrostatic fields. AC stabilization of the fields ensures that the disk position remains suitable, and field-base ...
