  1. High Power III-Nitride Heterojunction Field-Effect Effect Transistor Development

    SBC: III-N Technology, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The research proposed here is built on the recent successful fabrication of metal oxide semiconductor heterjunction field effect transistors (MOS-HFETs) based on AlGaN/GaN heterostructures with very high drain-current-driving and gate-control capabilitiesas well as unprecedented high breakdown voltages by the P.I.s research group at Kansas State University. III-nitride HFETs have great promises i ...

  4. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: Golden Helix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a prototype suite of recursive partitioning (RP) methodologies to provide advanced warning of failure, malfunction and/or performance degradation for Airborne Laser Program subsystems in service. Through better monitoring and analysisof the status of its systems, prediction of equipment life remaining can be made and corrective action taken to enhance the availability of the ...

  5. Composite Heat Pipe Baseplates for Thermal Management of T/R Modules

    SBC: JW COMPOSITES, LC            Topic: N/A

    Thermal managment of T/R modules requires new materials to reduce the thermal resistance between the high frequency amplifiers and the module cooling system. We are proposing to construct a heat pipe evaporator as the baseplate of a T/R module using a newcomposite material with low CTE and high thermal conductivity. Aligned fibers both within the composite material as well as within the heat pip ...

  6. Acoustically Intensified Reactor-Driven Mixed-base Hydrogen Peroxide System

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will develop and demonstrate an advanced process that utilizes a novel, high-intensity, low-frequency acoustic mixing technology in a system to rapidly produce a specialty fuel for use in chemical oxygen iodine lasers. The fuel is ahighly-reactive, mixed-base hydrogen peroxide (MHP). The MHP is used by a chemical oxygen iodine laser (COIL), which is the central element for th ...

  7. Small Payload Support Module


    One Stop Satellite Solutions (OSSS) has been designing, building, testing and flying space structures to support small-satellite missions for over twenty years. Even with the use of 'Cold War' assets such as the Minotaur launch vehicle, lowering of launchcosts can only be achieved by fully loading the rocket with maximum payload. Small satellite payloads come in many shapes and sizes so the solu ...

  8. Fiber-Optic Raman Analysis for Health Monitoring of Solid Rocket Motors Used in the GMD Program

    SBC: PROCESS INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose developing a compact, optical fiber-based Raman scattering instrument for rapid, in-situ health monitoring and analysis of solid rocket motors and propellants relied on for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) program. The instrument willincorporate diode laser-based, full-spectrum Raman scattering for continuous in-situ remote monitoring of the composite and propellant chemistry. ...

  9. Huntite Crystals for UV Nonlinear Optics and Self_Doubled Lasers


    Nonlinear Optical (NLO) crystals play a critical role in current solid-state laser systems operating at fixed UV or visible wavelengths, and as tunable frequency converters known as Optical Parametric Oscillators (OPOs). Currently, NLO materials limit theavailable wavelengths, as well as the longevity and efficiency of these laser systems due to low damage thresholds, poor optical quality, and sm ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Large Aperture, Periodically Poled, Hydrothermal Potassium Titanyl Phosphate for Highly Efficient Frequency Conversion of High-Power Solid-State and Fiber Lasers.

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to investigate the feasibility of fabricating large-aperture, periodic ferroelectric domain gratings for quasi-phase matched laser frequency conversion. The key innovation in this effort is the use of low temperature hydrothermally grown potassium titanyl phosphate (LTH-KTP) as the nonlinear optical substrate material. Using L ...
