  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Polarization Sensitive QWIP Thermal Imager

    SBC: Digital Imaging, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Smart IR weapons must have excellent IR sensor characteristics that exploit as much information as possible to ensure guidance accuracy with low false alarms. Quantum Well Infrared Photoconductors (QWIPs) offer an opportunity to explore long wavelength polarization characteristics. A great deal of attention has been directed toward creating 2D gratings that produce large coupling coefficient. O ...

  8. Stabilization of Phased Focus Array Using Electrochromic Technology

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Future space-based radar systems (SBRS) are expected to be critical to defense intelligence and modern battlefield analysis. SBRS design concepts involve thermal control issues exacerbated by low thermal mass, high radiative losses, and pressure to meetdesign areal densities of 4 to 6 kg/m2. To address these issues Eclipse Energy Systems, Inc. has developed prototype designs for electrochromic de ...

  9. Model Architecture Verification and Validation Tools- Extending the Use of Colored Petri Nets for Designing Command and Control Systems

    SBC: EXPAND, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Colored Petri Nets (CPNs) are now accepted as a powerful and general graphical language for designing complex systems. Several CPN editors, including Modasco's VSO Design, are now available or in development. However, these tools do not restrict the modelarchitect to realistic designs that satisfy the system's physical and functional requirements. Recent investigations by Modasco indicate that VS ...

  10. Lightweight Radar Absorbing Materials using Functionalized Binders in Aqueous Media

    SBC: Fractal Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Current radar absorbing materials (RAMs) are heavy and require hazardous materials for processing. Development of a lighter weight binder with a suitable morphology, combined with environmentally friendly solvents to produce RAMs would offer significantadvantages in manufacturing and in the field. As in any functional filled polymer, interaction between the different components is a must. The pre ...
