SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT005
We propose a three-dimensional imaging approach based on digital holography. Our approach is based on frequency diversity using a single chirped pulse instead of a train of pulses with different frequencies. Our approach promises to mitigate most of the issues limiting the performance of current methods and offer additional enabling capabilities that will improve target identification and tracking ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF19AT005
Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system. Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target. In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction. Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillate ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT006
Tau Technologies is teaming with Dr. David Voelz and his research group at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to propose â€œVibration Imaging for the characterization of extended non-cooperative targetsâ€�, which employs dual-pulses in two different variations for vibration imaging in order to characterize non-cooperative targets at extended standoffs. One method is based on double-pulse ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: EXCITING TECHNOLOGY LLC Topic: AF19AT006
The imaging vibrometer development will be based on a representative Directed Energy (DE) aperture assumed to be 30 cm. This effort will provide both DE and Combat IDentification (CID), modes for relative short range DE operations, and an ISR Combat IDentification (CID) mode for operation at extended range. A combination of analytic derivations and wave optics simulations will be used to define a ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. Topic: AF19AT006
Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT007
Efficient design, build, and test of an HEL system leverages modeling and simulation (M&S) to reduce cost and increase robustness. Designers use models to explore parameter variations and to estimate performance in conditions which cannot be tested due to physical or financial constraints. This provides significant savings in cost and time. Because live testing is so expensive, it is best used as ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: STELLAR SCIENCE LTD. CO. Topic: AF19AT007
We will deliver a new software architecture for scene generation named the Realistic Image and Neighborhood Generator (RING). Instead of being tied to a single tool, RING will provide interfaces suitable for a wide variety of image and scene rendering tools to run and interact with other codes. As an initial implementation of the interfaces, we will incorporate Stellar Scienceâ€™s powerful, f ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc. Topic: AF19AT017
Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: APPLIED OPTIMIZATION, INC. Topic: AF19AT017
The research objective is to develop a tunable spatially-varying photonic crystal (SVPC) to achieve the optical propagation properties (reflection and transmission) of the light through the designed structure for the visible and near IR-bands. The light from this SVPC will be able to focus and bend as a function of the spatial variation of the refractive index, input angle, and state of polarizati ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ALPHAMICRON, INCORPORATED Topic: AF18BT003
The team of AlphaMicron Inc. and Kent State University proposes a novel LC technology, the dynamic polarizer, as a light control system for Battlefield Airmen and Pilots. The dynamic polarizer technology shares the performance capabilities of AlphaMicronâ€™s e-Tint LC light control technology: instantaneously fails-to-clear, millisecond switching times, and customizable tint and color.
