  1. 3-D LADAR Polarimeter

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Polarization will increasingly be an important tool in ballistic missile defense. However, in practice, implementing a robust polarimetric system necessitates addressing a number of complex issues and challenges. Furthermore, polarimetric systems,traditionally have relied on spatial or sequential scanning mechanisms to record the multi-dimensional datacube. Due to spatial and/or temporal aliasing, ...

  2. 6000297

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF18AT017

    We propose to develop an innovative concept of the high speed dynamic IRSP that combines components and devices from proven suppliers with novel system-level research topics from CDS and University of Delaware. Having previously built and delivered working LED IRSPs to users gives CDS a unique advantage. In line with system theme of the solicitation, our phase 1 research topics are focused on syst ...

  3. A 2nd Generation Crack-Growth Prediction Methodology for Cold-Worked Fastener Holes

    SBC: ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of this project is to develop and validate a 2nd generation crack-growth prediction methodology for cold-worked fastener holes. The methodology will be based on a three-dimensional weight function, and will handle cracks growing from theedge of the hole, as well as cracks initiating in the residual tension zone away from the hole. A predictive capability, based on probabilistic fa ...

  4. A 3D Printed Head Phantom for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Current Model Validation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF151026

    ABSTRACT:Cognitive skills/capabilities are important for the military personnel to fulfill tasks and to ensure mission efficiency and success. In the past decade, there are abundant researches suggesting that non-invasive brain stimulation via transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) holds great promise to enhance a soldier's cognitive performances. Although models to predict the tDCS curren ...

  5. A CAD Tool for Rapid analysis of Repairs

    SBC: ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N06005

    The objective of this project is to develop and validate a CAD tool for the rapid design of mechanically fastened repairs, bonded repairs, and hybrid repairs involving both adhesive bonding and mechanical fasteners. To allow use by non-specialists, the CAD tool will replace the current process of manual construction of joint finite element models with CAD tinker toy assembly using parametric par ...

  6. A CAD Tool for Virtual Laser Shock Peening of Rotorcraft Components

    SBC: ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A05063

    The objective of this project is to develop a test-validated CAD tool for performing virtual laser shock peening(LSP) simulations of rotorcraft components. Virtual LSP peening can be used, in conjunction with virtual fatigue testing, to conduct simulations to assess the effects of variations in process parameters, i.e., laser beam power density and size, number of layers, and the overlay pattern ...

  10. A Compact High Current Driver for Semiconductor Diode Lasers, Suitable for Laser Radar (LADR) Applications

    SBC: Garron Instrument Engineering            Topic: N/A

    A fast-pulsed (3-15ns FWHM) high-current (>500A) driver for high power diode lasers or laser arrays is proposed. Present high-current diode drivers typically use MOSFET switches to modulate the current. It is difficult to achieve very fast pulses with such devices because the inherent capacitance of the gate electrode cannot be charged and discharged quickly. Lower current, but faster diode driver ...
