  3. Mitigation of Supersonic Aircraft Pod Aero-Optics

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF103001

    A technical plan is proposed for developing a supersonic pod-based application of virtual duct passive flow control for aero-optic mitigation. Virtual ducts have proven to be a highly effective tool for achieving aero-optic mitigation transonic flight up to Mach 0.8, and the proposed work seeks to leverage our extensive experience in designing and testing transonic virtual ducts to develop a unifi ...

  5. High Fidelity Algorithm to Model the Statistical Variations of Ground Target Signatures in Scene Generator Systems

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF161102

    Scene generators are commonly used to create synthetic images of ground targets, such as tanks and battlefield wheeled vehicles, to facilitate seeker algorithm development.These scene generators can produce realistic output for sensor types such as infrared or radar, but are limited by the quality of the target models.Typically, the target models show little or no variation so that the seeker algo ...

  6. Semi-Analytic Fresnel Propagation Simulation


    Wave-optics simulations are critical tools for analysis of laser directed energy systems. The primary method for conducting these simulations is to evaluate the Fresnel diffraction integral using the angular spectrum method based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT). While FFTs are considered computationally efficient, their use in the Fresnel integral results in difficult grid constraints includin ...

  7. Low SWaP Tactical Beam Control System

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF191057

    MZA proposes to develop a conceptual design for a low-SWaP beam control system for general airborne directed energy applications that is optimized for line-of-sight stabilization, precision pointing, and high bandwidth tracking. The proposed design will leverage MZA’s significant prior experience in designing, constructing, and testing high-energy laser (HEL) and adaptive-optic (AO) compati ...

  8. Aero-Mechanical Force Emulator

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF191058

    For this Phase I proposal, MZA and Etegent Technologies Inc. have teamed to leverage our complementary skill sets and put together a comprehensive force emulation solution for ELTF. MZA has extensive experience in the quantification and analysis of DE aero-effects data. This includes pressure loading and finite element analysis to predict the jitter performance beam directors, including ways to ab ...

  9. 3-D Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance (3-D TrAM)


    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 ...

  10. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization


    MZA partnered with the Michigan Technological University (MTU) proposes development and testing of key components for our unified Atmospheric Refractivity and Turbulence Sensor (ARTS.) Software upgrades will be made to MZA’s DELTA-Sky sensor to enable atmospheric refraction measurements in addition to existing turbulence profiling. The illuminator assembly to implement the ARTS probe laser ...
