  1. Durable Extendible Nozzle for Ballistic Missile Defense Advanced Solid Propellant Divert and Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA12022

    Heritage vehicles with large, axial thrust rocket motors have used extendable nozzles with great success. The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) future interceptors, including the SM-3 Block IIB, require advanced DACS to evolve the BMDS toward emerging threats. Building upon its core competencies, Systima"s design approach enables the proven advantages of nozzle extension technology. Teame ...

  2. High Efficiency 808-nm VCSEL Arrays with Excellent Beam Quality

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: N122112

    Today"s high energy Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers are often pumped by stacks of multiple edge-emitting diode laser bars since the vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) traditionally have been lower in efficiency. In this effort we are proposing a novel VCSEL design which overcomes the efficiency bottleneck in conventional VCSEL while preserving its beneficial attributes such as uniform beam in ...

  3. Efficient, Cost-Effective, Low-Emissions Method to Cutting Nuclear Submarine and Aircraft Carrier Hulls

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N123157

    The Navy needs a metal cutting system for submarine and aircraft carrier hull disposal. We propose to develop a Hull Cutting Mill (HCM) to meet Navy needs. Our HCM uses a compact high-speed high-power hydraulic milling head to perform slot-milling and achieve a fast lineal speed cutting high-tensile steel with a man-handle-able machine. Our HCM uses environmentally friendly water for its hydraulic ...

  4. Wavelength Stabilized Two Dimensional External Cavity Arrays for Pumping Alkali Vapor Laser Systems

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA12015

    nLIGHT proposes a two dimensional Wavelength Stabilized Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (WS-VECSEL) as a pump source for Rb vapor alkali laser used in directed energy weapons. The integration of a narrow-band reflector (i.e. a volume holographic grating) into the external cavity portion of the resonator, the structure promises power scalability from a monolithic active gain media ...

  5. Durable and rechargeable antimicrobial textiles

    SBC: Medetech Development Corp.            Topic: DHP12011

    For soldiers in the field, there are limited opportunities for normal hygiene. Showers/bathing facilities are limited, as is the ability to launder uniforms, underwear and bedding. A lack of clean water can make even basic hygiene difficult-- in addition to the obvious problem of unsanitary drinking water. Also, the infection-control challenges the military faces in field hospitals and in combat m ...

  6. Model-Based Architecture for Responsive Spacecraft Autonomy

    SBC: Okean Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF131092

    ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses the need for solutions that enable higher levels of spacecraft autonomy to reliably maintain operational capabilities. Random hardware faults and hostile threats necessitate autonomous systems capable of responding quickly and effectively to these threats and unexpected events. The proposed research will develop an autonomy software architecture that enables evol ...

  7. Implementation of real-time high-resolution extended EUV solar spectral irradiance forecast

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT11

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to achieve an operational capability to produce daily forecasts of the extended extreme ultraviolet solar spectral irradiance (XUV/EUV/FUV SSI, hereafter EUV SSI) by delivering quantitative expectations of the EUV SSI at high-spectral resolution for every day in the period of at least a week after the day the forecast is issued. The forecasted EUV SSI i ...

  8. Effective Processes to Manufacture Advanced Combustion Liners with Shaped Film Cooling Holes for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: OMAX CORP.            Topic: A13024

    OMAX proposes to develop an abrasive-waterjet (AWJ) system for drilling angled shaped holes in TBC-coated metals and engine components. Waterjet technology has technological and manufacturing merits that are unmatchable by many existing machine tools. In particular, OMAX will take advantage of patents pending advancements in micro abrasives-waterjet ("AWJ) technology supported by an ongoing NSF SB ...

  9. Tethered VTOL Comms Relay Powered by Laser over Fiber

    SBC: LaserMotive, Inc.            Topic: N131039

    Analyze a tethered VTOL system capable of carrying and maintaining the required communications relay components to at least 500 feet AGL for up to four days continuously. The VTOL and comms relay package receive power delivered using laser power from the surface vehicle over fiber optic cable and converted into electricity on-board the VTOL craft via photovoltaics. Such a system is smaller, lighte ...

  10. High Performance Radomes for Supersonic/Hypersonic Missiles

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N131056

    Conventional dielectric materials for radomes and windows for supersonic/hypersonic tactical missiles exhibit a number of performance limitations including inadequate thermal shock resistance, variations in electrical (dielectric constant and loss) and structural performance (mechanical strength) with temperature, and difficulty in fabrication to the desired shape. We propose to develop high stren ...
