  1. Material Growth and Bandgap Engineering of DMS Crystals and Q-Switching and Isolation of Near/Mid IR Lasers

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    Development of reliable (Q-) switching and isolation materials is being sought for near-to-mid infrared lasers for safety, extended life and fiber optic communication. The voltage or E-field controlled (Q-) switching materials such as Pockels cells and liquid Kerr cells are not reliable for long term operation in tactica applications due to crystal surface (e.g., KDP, ADP) degradation by moisture ...

  2. VERTICAL CAVITY SURFACE EMITTING LASER MODULES FOR OPTICAL COMMUNICATION AND SIGNAL PROCESSING

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VERTICAL CAVITY SURFACE EMITTING LASERS ARE UNDER DEVELOPMENT AT SEVERAL U.S. LABS WHICH CONSIST OF A GAAS/ALGAAS QUANTUM WELL FABRY-PEROT CAVITY SANDWICHED BETWEEN N AND P DOPED HIGH REFLECTIVITY SEMICONDUCTOR MIRRORS (GAAS/ALGAAS QUARTER WAVE STACKS). OUR PHASE I RESEARCH PROVES THE FEASIBLITY OF UNIQUE APPROACH TO THE ELECTRIC ADDRESSABILITY OF THESE SURFACE EMITTING LASERS. FOR ADDRESSING A (M ...

  3. GaAs/GaN Strained Layer Superlattice Material for High Temperature Transistors

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electronic devices which operate at high temperatures could be used in many military and commercial systems. GaAs and Si based devices cannot operate at these temperatures and require cooling. Wide bandgap material such as diamond, SiC and GaN have greater breakdown voltages, higher operating temperatures, and higher saturated electron velocities than either GaAs or Si. However, these material sys ...

  4. Single Cell Carbide Fueled Thermionic Fuel Element

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    If you can't beat them, join them. Such is the philosophy of Space Exploration Associates, who hired the top talent in Russian and the new Republic of Georgia to develop advanced thermionic converters for SDIO. Unlike other highly publicized exchanged with the Russians, this work will be done in the US and no hardware will cross international lines. The metallurgical wizards from the East have con ...

  5. Joining Carbon Composite Fins to Titanium Heat Pipes

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Everybody knows that composites have high strength, low density, and great thermal properties. They would be great for a number of applications such as fins for spacecraft radiators. So why aren't they used more on spacecraft thermal systems? One reason is joining technology. Although many methods such as brazing and adhesives have been developed for joining composites to metals, these methods are ...

  6. Adaptive Attitude Control System for Space-Based Interceptor

    SBC: Coleman Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    An adaptive attitude control system for a space-based interceptor will ameliorate the effects of torque disturbances when firing a divert thruster with the line of force offset from its center of mass. The adaptive control algorithm is based on a simplified version of a model reference adaptive control concept. It possesses two features: (i) more robust performance for the interceptor guidance and ...

  7. Nonlinear Filter Modeling Diffusion in Target Heading/Speed

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    To improve automated target tracking and correlation for strategic defense, this proposal models the dynamic behavior of manuevering vehicles by allowing target heading and speed, or their derivatives, to undergo independent diffusion processes. Current methods for surveillance sensors model diffusion in geographically fixed coordinate systems and fail to exploit course/speed nonlinearities, and k ...

  8. Non-Cryocooled Dual-Band Infrared Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    SDI requires dual band imaging technology. The approach may provide equivalent performance at far lower cost than discrete element IRFPA technologies. The project will develop a dual band IR imager using its photodichronic imaging (PDI) technology. A sensitive 8 to 12 micron imager has been demonstrated. Similarly designed materials have been demonstrated to be sensitive to different IR spectral b ...

  10. Optical Fiber Sensors for Space Structural Monitoring and Control

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Existing and future space structures require autonomous onboard structural evaluation and control systems to ensure mission effectiveness. Optical fiber sensors are particularly advantageous within these systems due to such sensors' inherent immunity to electromagnetic interference and ground loops; their excellent resolution, accuracy and dynamic range; their ability to be multiplexed; and their ...
