  1. Novel, High Speed, Linear Modulators with Domain Inverted Sections

    SBC: Advanced Photonics            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Photonics Technology (APT) proposes to develop novel, wide-band, highly linear integrated-optical modulators based on low-loss waveguides in ferroelectric (e.g., lithium niobate and lithium tantalate) crystals with domain-inverted sections. The application of domain inversion to electro-optical modulators introduces a novel approach that allows the development of devices with low levels o ...

  2. Marine Mammal Detection and Mitigation


    "The United States Navy is using and/or experimenting with active, coherent and incoherent sources to detect and localize submarines operated throughout the world. As the U.S. Navy continues to develop and employ active sensors and moves into littoralareas occupied by higher densities of marine mammals, adverse environmental impacts are likely to occur. Recently, in a U.S. Department of Commerce ...

  3. Submarine Low Cost Littoral Water Sonar Passive Localization System

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    The new joint mission scenarios and stealth interdiction objectives for the U.S. Navy have resulted in the need for improved sensor systems for operations in the littoral environment. A High Frequency Towed Array (HFRA) sonar system, operating in the same frequency band as hull mounted systems, provides better detection, classification, and localization capabilities,and reduces ship maneuverabilit ...

  4. Low-Cost, Fault-Tolerant Controls for Unmanned Aircraft


    Autonomous unmanned systems require provisions for fault detection and handling. Multiply-redundant schemes typically used in aerospace applications are prohibitively expensive for general applications, especially where low cost or small size are critical. A new strategy, proposed herein, offers the potential for low-cost fault-tolerant control of paramter-dependent systems that will be useful in ...

  5. Variable Reluctance Machine- Electric Start System for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Axiom Technology            Topic: N/A

    A Variable Reluctance Machine - Electric Start System for an advanced ship propulsion turbine engine is offered as a replacement to the existing air turbine start system. The VRM technology is capable of producing the required starting torques for the turbine engine, while operating at lower nominal speeds. This will significantly improve start system reliability. The simple design, intrins ...

  6. Exploiting Evolutionary Algorithms for Improved Automatic Target Recognition

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    "The U.S. Army is conducting extensive research involving the development of innovative algorithms for detecting and classifying high-value military targets using LADAR sensors. Many of these designs employ a model-based approach in which targets,background, and target/background interactions are modeled. A central tenet of this approach is that the large number of target, sensor, and background ...

  8. Test Mode Anechoic Chamber Characterization


    The free-space characterization of an anechoic chamber is presently accomplished by conducting difficult and tedious RF measurements of the interference field intensity levels. Anechoic chambers are characterized after initial construction to determine the quiet zones where the creation of free-space conditions is being attempted. When systems under test (SUT) are placed in the chamber, degradatio ...

  9. Standard Multispectral Environment and Effects Model (STMEEM)


    It is evident that having a standard multispectral environment capable of supporting a wide variety of users is crucial to promoting widespread use of any standard M&S architecture and reusability among the players and player components developed for such an architecture. A standard environment will provide for greater player portability and reusability since players would not be linked to a uniq ...

  10. Calibrated Infrared Focal Plane Array Imagers

    SBC: Devoe & Matthews, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed research involves the development of a system specification for a calibrated, infrared, focal plane array imager. A thorough review of LWIR and MWIR sensor manufacturing capability within the US wil be conducted. In addition, candidate companies will be selected to pursue more in-depth performance issues during on-site visits. Analysis of individual IR systems will be included along wi ...
