  1. Economical and Reliable Adaptive Disturbance Cancellation for Lightly Damped Systems

    SBC: PLANNING SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Efforts to apply active noise and vibration control commercially, while intensifying, continue to be hampered by the cost of the computers required to implement the active algorithms. Currently, the cost of wide-band control is prohibitive for lightly damped systems such as precision structures or highly reverberant acoustic spaces, even if the system has just one canceling actuator and one error ...

  2. An Onboard Coherent Lidar Wake Turbulence Sensor

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A forward and lateral looking scanning Doppler lidar is proposed for use onboard aircraft to sense and display windshear in the vicinity of the planned flight path, particularly windshear due to the vortex wakes of preceding large aircraft. The goal is to provide the pilot with an assessment, visual display, and warning of the windshear in the vicinity of the projected flight path, with ...

  3. Physics-Based Signature Simulator for Adaptive Waveform Coherent LADAR

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel, adaptive waveform coherent LADAR concept is proposed to provide a robust Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) sensor with the capability to meet Air Force objectives. The compact, rugged solid-state LADAR operates at eyesafe wavelengths and is capable of stand-off detection ranges to 20 km or more. Simultaneous precision range, Doppler and micro-Doppler target signatures are extracted wit ...

  4. Adaptive Waveform Solid-State Coherent LADAR Array Imager

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel, adaptive waveform coherent LADAR concept is proposed to provide a robust sensor capability to meet Air Force objectives. The LADAR operates at an eyesafe solid-state wavelength in order to achieve a compact, rugged design capable of stand-off ranges of 20 km or more. Simultaneous precision range, Doppler and micro-Doppler target signatures are extracted with an extremely efficient proc ...

  5. Distributed Aperture, Multifunction Laser Radar System

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An emerging, powerful trend in electro-optics systems development is the "multifunction sensor. It addresses the need to reduce the volume, prime power requirements, and cost of sensor suites. Further functionality and cost reduction are achieved by distributing the multifunction sensor signals over an optical bus to spatially-separated optical apertures and time multiplexing a centrally located ...

  6. High Average Power Frequency Agile COIL

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nonlinear optical frequency converters for lasers are impacting a variety of systems including weapons fire control, active beacon adaptive optics, target designation, range finding, and active multispectral imaging ladar. Most next-generation systems require frequency agile transmitters with improved power scaling. For example, there are currently few high average power (1 to 20 kW) frequency c ...

  7. Coherent Laser Radar Atmospheric Turbulence Sensor

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase I program develops and investigates the feasibility of a novel, single-ended, range-resolved refractive turbulence profiler. This system is based on solid-state coherent laser radar technology and therefore has the potential for characterizing wind turbulence as well. The subject innovation provides real-time turbulence profiles that can benefit missile defense sensors, such a ...

  9. Flight Control Technology

    SBC: DIGITAL SYSTEM RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force has identified the need to develop affordable flight control technology to support Air Force Global Engagement objectives. Of particular interest to the Air Force is the development of real-time optimization algorithms for cooperative engagement solutions among Uninhabited Air Vehicles (UAV) in a multiple target environment. DSR proposes developing a real-time, rule based, Cooperat ...

  10. Rapid Acquisition of P(Y) Code Signals Using Electro-Optic Signal Processing

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N/A

    Modern GPS receivers adopt a digital architecture to facilitate signal processingusing high speed VHDL electronics. NAVSYS has developed a buffered digital receiver architecture (the TIDGET (TM) -PLUS) that optimizes the GPS search and acquisition process by operating in the frequency domain. The Rapid Acquisition FFT (RAFFT) approach was developed by NAVSYS initially to speed high dynamic C/A c ...
