  1. Advanced Diode Pumped Laser Packaging

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High power lasers are needed for many airborne applications. These lasers must be compact, reliable in high vibration environments, and must also have a low per unit cost. Aculight proposes to develop a high repetition rate laser with average power of 10-20 watts using novel packaging designs and manufacturing methods. When fully developed, this technology will provide flight-worthy lasers at a ...

  2. High Brightness, Multi-Wavelength Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Improving the optical beam brightness of diode laser bars and optically pumped semiconductors is essential for many Air Force and commercial applications. In this proposed work Aculight will build and test a MIT/LL optical approach for decreasing the angular divergence of diode laser bars by a factor of at least 80. The MIT/LL approach will be implemented using Aculight's newly developed optical ...

  3. Compact Microlaser and Rangefinder

    SBC: EWING TECHNOLOGY ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel 1.57 micron eye-safe micro laser and rangefinder are proposed. The concept results in a laser and detection system with a total weight with batteries of less than 4 ounces each for the micro-transmitter and the miniaturized detection system. Using novel, state of the art laser modeling codes to support our design, we have quantified a range of options for the transmitter and system design ...

  5. Extensible PDE and Wavelet Tools for Tactical


    The military is increasingly making use of various types of imaging sensors, such as SAR, ISAR,IR, and optical, for tasks such as surveillance, precision strike, automatic target recognition, and rapid retargetting. Traditional techniques for image enhancement and segmentation have a limited utility for military applications using the kinds of sensors. In this research, we will develop a ...

  6. Wavelet-Based Detection and Classification for Shallow-Water Impulsive-Source Sonar


    In recent years the anti-submarine-warfare mission of the U. S. Navy has been expanded to include operations against stealthy, diesel-electric submarines operating in near-shore, shallow water regions of the world. Acoustic conditions in such regions are characterized by significant spatial and temporal variability. This variability reduces the performance of traditional sonar detection and class ...

  7. Joint Target Detection and Lossy Compression of Tactical Sensor Data


    More reliance is being placed in autonomous platforms to collect sensory data which are then transmitted to central sites for further processing and analysis. Efficient transmission of image data is essential and often requires lossy compression, which introduces error into the original data. The effects on associated processing tasks, such as target detection and recognition, can be detrimental ...

  8. Multifuel, Portable Thermophotovoltaic Battery Chargers

    SBC: JX CRYSTALS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Thermophotovoltaic generators work by directly converting heat energy in the form of infrared radiation into electricity using photovoltaic cells. With no moving parts in the conversion process, these direct current generators promise quiet and reliable operation. With their capacity to utilize logistic fuels, they have the potential to meet the military's emerging requirement for portable batte ...

  9. Air Decontamination with Corona Plasma

    SBC: MesoSystems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As the availability of materials and know-how to field weapons of mass destruction using chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents are increasingly available to rogue groups and nations, novel approaches to air filtration for HVAC systems are critical for national security. Using a gas phase corona reactor (GPCR) system, which is capable of destroying chemical and biological agents and deliver ...

  10. An Advanced Gas Mask Incorporating A Low Energy corona Plasma Reactor

    SBC: MesoSystems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MesoSystems Technology, Inc. and Battelle Memorial Institute propose to design, fabricate, and evaluate a miniature plasma reactor (MPR) system as an augmentation of the current gas mask filter. A laboratory prototype demonstration (Phase I) will be followed by the development and demonstration of a lightweight, partially ruggedized, fieldable unit (Phase II) which will be delivered to the millit ...
