  1. Active Laser Tracker for KKV

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "Ballistic missile defense requires the ability to find, track and intercept a threat missile before it can reach its target. The kinetic kill vehicle (KKV) is a fundamental means to intercept and destroy the threat. To be successful, the KKV must be ableto acquire and track the target autonomously while steering itself on an intercept course. It must do this within a very small Circular Error ...

  2. Next Generation Inertial Reference Unit (NG-IRU)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "The Air Force is pursuing aircraft and satellite-based high power laser systems to engage and destroy missiles at long ranges (hundreds to thousands of kilometers). A precision inertial reference unit (IRU) is critical to successful operation of longrange, high power laser systems for missile defense. The IRU enables the system to accurately point the payload telescope and attached tracking sen ...

  3. Enhanced Target Identification (ETID) for Strategic HEL Systems Using Bayesian-Topological Fusion Classification.

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal addresses the development of an enhanced target identification (ETID) method of classifying and identifying boost phase threat objects for targeting by a strategic HEL weapon such as a Space Based Laser (SBL), a Ground Based Laser (GBL) or anAirborne Laser (ABL) weapon.The work to be accomplished builds on past work on Target Identification (TID) algorithms accomplished for the Air ...

  4. Rapid Laser Drilling and Inspection of Contoured Holes

    SBC: E. M. Optomechanical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Air Force's Airborne Laser System needs technology to rapidly produce high-quality 170-micron diameter contoured holes in quantities of millions. At a target rate of one hole per minute, a single production workstation running 24/7 would take 46 yearsto produce the number of holes required for a fully operational system consisting of seven aircraft. E. M. Optomechanical, Inc. is proposing a ...

  5. Inert metal encapsulation of magnetic particles for improved magnetic field effects at fuel cell electrodes

    SBC: ELECTROPHORICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Magnetic field-enhanced electrocatalysis at the hydrogen and air electrodes of PEM fuel cells have reported improved power densities, three-fold over conventional PEMFCs. Leddy, et al. used micron-sized polymer-encapsulated beads of permanent magnetsplaced in conventional inks of carbon-supported platinum electrocatalysts to enhance MEA performance. Their work showed a qualitatively improved CO ...

  6. Auto-regenerating Decontaminant Coating for Fabrics and Surfaces


    "The Department of Defense Chemical and Biological Defense Program has a need for a highly effective, relatively low cost, low human toxicity coating or surface treatment that can be applied to fabrics and other surfaces to render them self-decontaminatingto chemical and biological warfare agents. ETEC has identified a novel chemistry that promises to be a highly effective self-regenerating decont ...

  7. An Ultra-Compact Impulse Radiating Antenna for Space Applications

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Compact Ultra-Wideband (UWB) antennas with broad bandwidth could be of great use in a variety of space-based applications, including radar, communications, and surveillance. The challenge is to deploy a lightweight UWB antenna that is stowable in a smallvolume, that is automatically deployable, and that will be resistant to the harsh space environment. To overcome these challenges we propose an U ...

  8. An Ultra-Wideband Antenna Built Into a Parachute

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "On the modern electronic battlefield, a weapon that disables the enemy's electronics can be more useful than a weapon that executes a killing strike. This is possible because a radio frequency (RF) weapon that attacks electronics can be effective over amuch larger radius than a high-explosive (HE) weapon. For example, a single 155-mm artillery shell has a disabling blast radius limited to a few m ...

  9. An Integrated Portable High-Voltage Ultra-Wideband Transmitter

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High-voltage Ultra-Wideband transmitters are a key component in a wide variety of systems involving directed energy weapons, UWB radar, and secure communications. These applications require a UWB transmitter that combines a portable high-gain antenna witha fast-risetime high-voltage triggered source that is battery powered. Until recently, both the antennas and sources were too large and heavy to ...

  10. Artificial Dielectrics and Fresnel Lenses for High Power Microwave Applications

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Lens antennas with large apertures could be useful in a variety of High-Power Microwave (HPM) and Ultra-Wideband (UWB) applications. Such lenses are needed in the frequency range of 0.2-2 GHz, and they must have low loss and dispersion. Existing lensesmade of solid dielectric materials, such as polyethylene, are too dense and weigh too much to be practical for large apertures. To build a lightwei ...
