  1. Low-cost, high brightness, wavelength-selectable laser transmitter

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    For future long-range theater ballistic missile defense, aircraft-mounted LADAR systems require eyesafe laser transmitters that produce higher pulse energy and better beam quality than currently available optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) pumped by diode-pumped Nd:YAG lasers. Aculight proposes a novel laser transmitter approach that can simultaneously generate the required pulse energy, b ...

  2. Titanium-Composite Body Armor Plates

    SBC: Advanced Protection Products,            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Protection Products, Inc. (APPI) will use advanced materials and processes to develop and certify Very Light Body Armor (VLBA) plates that are capable of defeating a variety of ballistic threats. The VLBA plates will be designed using a titanium allow based metallic-composite armor system to provide cost-effective, lightweight protection. Composite facing and backing materials will be u ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH HEAT FLUX HEAT EXCHANGER

    SBC: Applied Thermodynamic Systems            Topic: N/A

    GAS-TO-LIQUID HEAT EXCHANGERS FIND APPLICATION IN NEARLY EVERY ENERGY CONVERSION AND PROCESS SYSTEM. HOWEVER, DUE TO LOW HEAT FLUXES, THEY ARE EXCESSIVELY LARGE AND EXPENSIVE. LOW HEAT FLUXES ARE CAUSED PRIMARILY BY LOW GAS-SIDE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENTS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY IS TO DEVELOP A NOVEL FLUIDIZED BED HEAT EXCHANGER WHICH HAS SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER HEAT FLUXES THAN CONVENTIONAL HE ...

  4. Dynamic Firing Zone Imaging System

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    An automated dynamic firing zone generation imaging system is needed to increase the effectiveness and utility of shipboard weapon systems. The current manual firing zone definition process is manpower intensive, complex, and cannot account for motion or changing topside configuration. These limitations greatly restrict the lethality and utility of shipboard weapons. This project proposes a dyna ...

  5. Unified HP/RT Development to Deployment Middleware Platform

    SBC: Conceptual Systems & Software Inc            Topic: N/A

    A significant problem for modern combat control system implementations is the incompatible development and deployment environments. These applications have specific performance requirements that until recently were only accurately obtained on the target installation system. However, for various logistic and economic reasons, the platforms utilized for advanced applications have typically been inc ...

  6. Self-Assembled Monolayer Based Methods for Fabrication of Diffractive Optical Elements

    SBC: DIGITAL OPTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I project builds upon Digital Optics Corporation's experience in the design, fabrication and commercialization of diffractive and micro-optics and the experience of Dr. George Whitesides of Harvard University to provide an innovative approach to the fabrication of diffractive and micro-optical components using self-assembled monolayers (SAM's). The proposed approach makes use of SA ...

  7. PERMANENT MAGNET ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHER

    SBC: Electroimpact, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTROIMPACT PROPOSES THAT ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCH BE EMPLOYED WITH A PERMANENT MAGNET PUSHER MOTOR AND A TRAVELING WAVE LAUNCH TUBE. NEODYMIUM-IRON-BORON PERMANENT MAGNETS ELIMINATE THE REQUIREMENT FOR HIGH POWER ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS TO THE MOVING LAUNCHING DEVICE. MAGNETIC SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY USING PERMANENT MAGNETS WILL PREVENT THEDEVICE FROM RATTLING DOWN THE LAUNCH TUBE. A PERMANENT MAGNE ...

  8. Suprises and Opportunities

    SBC: EMERGENT TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Emergent Technologies Corp. (ETC) in conjunction with research partners at West Virginia University has developed and recently patented an innovation antenna that promises to revolutionize the science of antenna design, construction and utilization. The antenna, labeled the Countrawound Toroidal Helical Antenna (CTTHA), offers a number of significant advantages over conventional antennas. The CT ...

  9. TERFENOL-D Lamination Process Cost Reduction

    SBC: Etrema Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    All high performance TERFENOL-D sonar devices require the drivers to be laminated for eddy current control. The process of laminating TERFENOL-D to present interlamina resistivity requirements results in low yields due to considerable material loss and is, therefore, a wasteful process. The objective of this program is to define and experimentally verify accurate interlamina resistivity levels f ...

  10. ULTRASONIC DATA INTERCHANGE STANDARD (UDIS)

    SBC: Failure Analysis Associates            Topic: N/A

    MOST OF THE ULTRASONIC SCANNING SYSTEMS IN SERVICE OR BEING INSTALLED AT DOD FACILITIES OFFER SOME MEANS OF RECORDING INSPECTION DATA. HOWEVER, THE ADVANTAGES OF THIS CAPABILITY AREN'T BEING FULLY REALIZED BECAUSE THE STORAGE MEDIA AND DATA ARCHIVAL FORMATS DIFFER FROM SYSTEM TO SYSTEM. THIS LACK OF STANDARDIZATION IS CAUSING A PROBLEM THAT IS BECOMING WIDESPREAD AS MORE AND MORE DOD FACILITIES IN ...
