  1. Fiber laser for advanced guidance research

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF05159

    The DoD requires new sources of eye safe, short pulse, laser radiation to enable the next generation laser radar (LADAR) seekers. Conventional eye safe laser sources using diode-pumped solid-state laser (DPSSL) and optical parametric oscillator (OPO) technologies have difficulties to meet the packaging requirements and to operate with constant pulse width at variable repetition rate. Also, the e ...

  3. Wavelength Conversion of Pulsed Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: SB052027

    First generation mid-infrared lasers contribute to the prohibitively high life cycle cost of infrared countermeasures systems, precluding their broad application in helicopters. We propose to develop a fiber amplifier-based IRCM laser transmitter that will contain all optical beams within optical fiber, eliminating adjustable, discrete, optical mounts, to significantly increase the laser's MTBF. ...

  4. High-Speed Headstock with B-Axis for Machining Aircraft Structures

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF05127

    The Air Force needs new higher productivity, higher accuracy equipment and processes for machining integral, complex aircraft airframe structures cost effectively. Structures with simply shaped pockets and straight walls can be effectively end milled using large high velocity machine tools. However, these machines cannot efficiently mill structures with integral return flanges and other complex ...

  5. Coherent Ladar Transmitter with Very-High-Extinction Ratio Electro-Optical Modulator

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: MDA04179

    EOSPACE Inc. proposes to design and develop a very high-performance coherent Ladar transmitter with the key electro-optical components based on ultra-low-loss, broadband electro-optic lithium niobate waveguide technology, including very-high extinction ratio (>60dB), wide bandwidth (dc to > 1GHz) modulator for 1.06 microns wavelength of operation. An incorporation of optical polarization control c ...

  6. Photonic Multi-Channel Transmit/Receive Integrated Phase and Amplitude Controller

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: A04035

    The development of compact Gbit/sec bandwidth Army free-space, laser communication systems requires a new generation of fiber-optic, high-speed, multi-channel beam controllers. It is proposed to develop a low-loss, multi-channel, integrated transmit/receive, beam-combiner and controller with high-speed, low voltage phase shifting and amplitude modulation capabilities. The Transmit/Receive (Transce ...

  7. High Speed (15 kts) Long-Length Fiber Optic Deployment System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N05075

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop a compact Underwater Tether Deployment (UTD) System designed to provide an optical fiber link for two-way communication between a submarine and a communication buoy. To minimize tension forces on the fiber optic, the UTD System will utilize two deployment spools, one at each end of the cable, thus enabling long lengths to be deployed at high veloc ...

  8. An Integrated Thrust Control Solution

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: A04174

    This proposal describes a feasibility study to evaluate several concepts for integrated thrust vector control of a tactical missile. The proposed designs include a moveable aeropintle capable of moving laterally as well as axially and a fluidic gas injection system with the goal of provide both thrust variation and thrust vector control. The variable thrust aeropintle can be mechanized to move in ...

  9. Radiation-Resistant Nanoscopically Enhanced Solar Cell Coverglass

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: AF05022

    Hybrid Plastics proposes to develop a low cost, and versatile method for shielding commercial and military solar cells from damage against proton and electron radiation. The technical approach utilizes metallized nanoscopic polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes as conformal coatings on coverglass and on solar cell surfaces. Such coatings would permit spacecraft designers to increase duty cycles wh ...

  10. Field Deployable Diagnostic Test for Active Cutaneous Leishmania and a Test for Latent Infection

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A04177

    The proposed immunochromatographic diagnostic test would be a useful rapid diagnostic test for the direct detection of Leishmania parasites responsible for cutaneous leishmaniasis in soldiers exhibiting skin lesions. It would have application in detecting Leishmania parasites directly from needle aspirates/swabs of skin lesions in a field environment hence facilitating accurate treatment. The majo ...
