  1. Rapid, Low-Cost, Reformable Tooling for Prototyping and Short-run Manufacturing of Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A major obstacle for BMD systems to the introduction of new structures and designs using high-performance composites is the time and cost of the tooling required both to prototype and test new components and to transfer accepted designs to manufacturing.The development of reformable, reusable tooling based on 2Phase Technologies' patented state-change materials will reduce the time, cost and effor ...

  2. Dual use, non-cryogenic operating temperature, mid-infrared laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Future IRCM laser transmitters are being developed based on optically pumped GaSb mid-infrared semiconductor laser, however, the current technology requires the laser to be operated at cryogenic temperature. Aculight and MIT Lincoln Laboratory propose toinvestigate methods to increase the operating temperature of these semiconductor lasers, which will dramatically decrease the cost of the laser t ...

  3. Space Qualified One Micron Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Yb:SFAP laser system, using a novel resonator scheme, that will provide over 1 J per pulse output at 100 Hz at high efficiency, in a package far more compact, lower mass and efficient that conventional systems. The high-pulse-energy poweroscillator architecture is especially suited to space platforms where weight, volume, cooling and efficiency are particularly important. The propos ...

  4. High Power Mid-Infrared (2-10 Micron) Diode Laser Development

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Advanced IRCM lasers and systems, currently in development, require mid-infrared semiconductor lasers with very non-standard design parameters. The proposed effort will investigate the performance of commercially grown GaSb based materials and optimizetheir performance for use in unique laser transmitter designs, which will be directly traceable to future IRCM systems. The proposed mid-infrare ...

  5. Compact, High Power Midwave Infrared Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Navy requires high power laser sources that can provide multi-Watt output power levels in the mid-infrared for optical countermeasures of anti-ship missiles. Current state of art laser transmitters, consisting of diode-pumped solid-state lasers andoptical parametric oscillators, have demonstrated the required optical power and wavelength in the mid-infrared spectral region. However, these la ...

  6. Integrated Laser Electronics

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Significant cost reductions are needed in the cost of IRCM laser transmitters to improve their affordability and adoption. A COTS based laser electronics module that can be tightly integrated with a low cost mid-infrared laser will be developed andenvironmentally tested in the Phase I effort. In addition, capability for advanced waveform generation will be incorporated into the electronics provi ...

  7. Innovative Technology Development for Laser Radar (LADAR)

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build a novel eyesafe fiber laser source capable of operating over the 20-100 kHz repetition rate range. Using a combination of COTS technology from the telecom industry and amplifier designs based upon recent developments at Naval ResearchLabs, the source will deliver 7-10 Watts while maintaining pulse duration

  9. Hand-held, Standoff Chemical-Biological Hazard Detector

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    SOCOM, other military branches, and civilian authorities (homeland defense) need ways to rapidly determine the presence of chemical and biological threats and classify their nature. Standoff detection of the threats would greatly enhance personnel safetyand allow more operational flexibility.We propose a novel laser-based system allowing remote measurements of the infrared spectra of aerosols, va ...

  10. A Fail-Safe Controllable Magneto-Rheological Fluid Smart Pad/Damper System for Submarine Based Weapon Shock and Vibration Mitigation

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: N/A

    An innovative tunable vibration absorber (TVA) concept was developed in the Phase I feasibility study. This design was selected among others to be developed in full scale in Phase II and Phase II Option based on a detailed theoretical modeling, smallprototype test results, and a cost analysis, which were conducted in Phase I.In Phase II and Phase II Option a new generation of TVA utilizing a clas ...
