  1. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: H. F. Webster Engineering Services, Inc.            Topic: AF19BT001

    There are two main objectives that this proposal addresses. The first is to develop an oil additive that reduces friction and is thermally conductive and designed to increase engine efficiency and equipment lifecycles.This will be obtained through further material production and testing.Once the desired thermal conductivity and friction coefficient is achieved, the oil additive will be tested at S ...

  3. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and Modulation Control

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Through simultaneous control of the polarization and frequency modulation of an outgoing continuous-wave (CW) sodium guide star laser beam, demonstrate a new concept to maximize the resonant backscattered flux per watt of projected laser power, taking advantage of enhancements from both optical pumping of mesospheric sodium atoms to a trapped transition and alignment of the atoms with the geomagne ...

  4. Nanophotonic Optical Emulator for Complex Electromagnetic Maneuverability (EM) Systems

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N19AT008

    The radar cross section (RCS) of a platform, such as a ship or a submarine, is of particular importance for the Navy since it allows the detection and identification of the vessel. Minimizing the radar reflection improves the stealth properties of the vessel making it more difficult to detect. The observed RCS can also be used to identify a target by comparing it with a database of known profiles. ...

  5. Near-IR Emulator for Complex EM Systems (NICE)

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N19AT008

    The NP Photonics/UMassD team proposes an ultra-compact coherent NIR RCS measurement range. We plan to develop a novel system for rapid 3D printing of nanostructures for emulating complex EM systems, and use coherent NIR light for scaled RCS measurements. In the NIR region, the EM properties of complex RF systems are measurable by reducing the size by factors of magnitude. The advantages of this ap ...

  6. 3-Band ps Pulse High Energy Compact Laser System for Marine Wave Boundary Layer Atmospheric Characterization Instrument Development

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N19AT009

    Gaining a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of maritime turbulence and laser light propagation in the marine boundary is required to optimize the performance of critical communication and defensive and offensive laser light engagements. Increased understanding of beam propagation through the turbulent flows of the marine layer will help the US Navy improve the performance of beam o ...

  7. Space-Based Computational Imaging Systems

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT015

    The Alphacore team will develop new advances in onboard processing hardware to enable the Air Force to consider the revolutionary benefits of computational imaging systems for space, e.g., computational imaging systems that combine both optical and computational elements in ways that have the potential to outperform traditional (all-optical) imaging systems. The resulting computational imaging sys ...

  8. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: AF18AT013

    Missiles experience a wide range of thermal and mechanical environments due to the large variety of flight profiles.Since the missile radome is often the aerodynamic leading edge, it undergoes significant thermal and mechanical loading. The radome must survive the dynamic pressure loading, thermal shock and environmental erosion from airborne particulates (rain / sand) while performing as an elect ...

  9. Eye-safe Fiber Laser Illuminator for Coherent Detection

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF191053

    The goal of the proposal presented by NP Photonics, Eye-safe Fiber Laser Illuminator for Coherent Detection is to design, build and demonstrate a high energy transform limited fiber laser for coherent illuminator applications. We are proposing to use an all-fiber Master-Oscillator Power-Amplifier (MOPA) laser architecture. We have experience building such a system and have already commercially dev ...

  10. An All-Fiber High-Energy Pulsed Illuminator for Coherent Imaging

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF191053

    Over the past several years, AdValue Photonics has developed a proprietary fiber laser technology, enabling >1mJ pulse energy generation of transform-limited-linewidth laser pulses from all-fiber-format robust laser systems at multiple wavelength bands (1m, 1.55m, and 2m). In this SBIR program, we will develop an eye-safe all-fiber laser illuminator for coherent 3D imaging and vibration imaging, w ...
