  6. Fiber Optic Bi-Directional Amplifying Repeater

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N131015

    Telecommunication 850 nm band is an attractive choice for the physical layer and has been used for the vast majority of the optical local area networks (LANs) by taking advantage of comparatively low-cost silicon P-I-N technology for optical receivers as well as high power GaAIAs semiconductor lasers for both the signal sources and the amplifier pumps. For a fiber optic link to connect the aircraf ...

  7. Life Improvement of Plain Airframe Bearings by Preventing Contamination

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N131016

    Safe, Inc. proposes a physical shield to protect spherical bearings from the abrasive particulate. Since many rotorcraft rod-ends are installed in exposed locations, sand and dirt cause damage to the spherical bearings and their liners. By preventing these particulate from contacting the spherical ball, the shield will prevent much of the contamination damage that shortens bearing life on rotorcra ...

  8. Electromagnetic-Attack-Resistant EO Polymer/Sol-gel Modulator

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N131066

    RF photonic links provide an attractive approach to minimizing the impact of an electromagnetic attack on defense and commercial communications infrastructure. A key component in an RF photonic link is an electro-optic (EO) modulator, and current commercially available EO modulators are not able to withstand the 10kW peak power pulses that can results from an electromagnetic attack, such as an ele ...

  10. Compact Laser System for Airborne Detection of Ocean Mines

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N131074

    TIPD LLC proposes to develop a compact and efficient multi-spectral laser system with four spectral bands at 532 nm, 685 nm, 700 nm, and 735 nm for airborne detection of ocean mines. The diode pumped solid-state laser system consists of a master oscillator and power amplifier (MOPA) laser, a frequency doubling laser, and three singly resonant optical parametric oscillators (OPOs). The Nd:YAG thin ...
