  1. 20 GHz Low Voltage Linear Laser Modulator for RF Distribution

    SBC: IPITEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IPITEK proposes a novel low-voltage, low-loss 20 GHz continuous bandwidth electro-optic modulator based on nonlinear optical (NLO) polymer materials. The proposed approach will be based IPITEK's recent experimental success in achieving 0.8 V halfwavevoltage, and insertion loss reduction techniques that considerably improved light throughput. Optical push-pull will be used to reduce the half-wave ...

  2. The Effector System for Effects Based Operations

    SBC: ISX CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The EFFECTOR system will use Effects-based Operations concepts in developing a suite of next-generation tools to enable dynamic planning and adaptive plan execution. Ontology tools construct and maintain formal semantic representations that will build andmanage more complex and complete plans. Smart editors using active template technology will be used to narrow the selection of defaults based on ...

  3. High Performance Nano-scale Vacuum Triode Amplifier

    SBC: Jaycor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Micro-vacuum-tube electronics utilizing CVD diamond micro-tip emitters (patented) as the cold cathode, a CVD diamond micro-patterned grid or self aligned gate, and a CVD diamond anode will be developed. Each device will be 3 microns square and will befabricated in an array having 10 million devices in 1 cm^2. The very small vacuum tubes will have plate currents of 100 micro-amps at grid voltages ...

  4. Planware

    SBC: KESTREL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N/A

    The Electronic Systems Command (ESC) of the U. S. Air Force has funded the development of a variety of C3I systems, raising concerns about excess cost and effort due to overlapping components and functionality. This concern motivated ESC to developschedulers by the product line approach. Our Planware project addresses the fact that the core functionality of scheduling is diverse, and that no small ...

  5. Flickerless Electro-optic Imagery for Simulation and Test Instrumentation (FEISTI)

    SBC: PHOTERA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    Testing in a simulated environment is an essential feature of weapons system development. However, creating that environment can pose severe technical challenges. In the case of TV-guided munitions, the difficulty stems from the need to preserve dynamicimage fidelity with respect to a weapon's seeker; a task which is very different from creating imagery which appears realistic to the human eye, an ...

  6. Scalable Coherent Array of Fiber Optic Laser Devices (SCAFOLD)

    SBC: PHOTERA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    Power and brightness scaling of single-fiber lasers is limited by intrafiber damage intensity. Hence, scaling to kW levels requires designs which coherently integrate the output of multiple fibers while, at the same time, avoiding nonlinear effects (suchas SBS) which limit the output power from a single fiber. We have devised a technique whereby multiple fiber sources can be combined coherently ...

  7. Optical Fiber Oscillator-Amplifier with Increased Pulse Power

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We propose an innovative approach to increasing the optical power available from optical fiber lasers. The approach uses a novel fiber design that sharply discriminates against long wavelengths. We can engineer this wavelength cutoff to eliminateparasitic nonlinearities that limit the useful peak power from fiber. We will build a demonstration system utilizing this approach to increase the powe ...

  8. Real-Time Munition Failure Prediction Sensor

    SBC: MICROASSEMBLY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For Phase I, MicroAsembly Technologies has designed novel MEMS sensor technology to reduce failures of USAF penetrating munitions. The continuation of this work in phase II will take the technology from the design stage, through prototyping, ready forproduction. This novel technology is in the form of linear and rotational micro-electromechanical (MEMS) sensors. The use of these small size, low ...

  9. Structural Concepts and Components

    SBC: Microcosm, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, Microcosm demonstrated an all-composite cryogenic propellant tank fabricated out-of-autoclave. This revolutionary 42-inch LOX tank, tested with liquid nitrogen at 1.2 times maximum operating pressure, weighs 43% of one made of 2219 aluminum,and was produced for 15% of the cost. The design was scaled-up from our 10-inch IR&D tanks, one of which was the world's first all-composite LOX ...

  10. Phase Two Development of Interconnect Technology Between Electronics and Multi-Waveband Infra Red Sensors

    SBC: MICROWAVE BONDING INSTRUMENTS            Topic: N/A

    IR sensors are extremely valuable tools for a vast array of applications in areas ranging from astronomy to national security. The advancement of multi-waveband IR detectors faces serious hurdles due to the interconnection between the sensor elements andthe electronics substrates. The interconnect technology has emerged as the limiting factor in the signal processing and durability of these multi- ...
