  2. Physics-Based Identification and Management of Aeroelastic Limit-Cycle Oscillations (LCO)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF07T006

    The Phase II effort presented in this proposal is intended to passively eliminate LCO by suppressing the triggering mechanism of the LCO through the concept of Targeted Energy Transfer (TET) between the aeroelastic modes of the system. The TET is physically realized through the utilization of a device known as a Nonlinear Energy Sink (NES), which provides nonlinear stiffness and inertial loading r ...

  3. Beacon Modulation Tomography for Compensation in Deep Turbulence Phase 2

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF073002

    The applicability of adaptive optical systems remains limited today by the inability to solve the problem of compensation for the effects of turbulence in the deep turbulence regimes with an extended, non-cooperative target. Beacon anisoplanatism and scintillation combine to severely limit the performance of Adaptive Optical (AO) systems due to phenomena such as atmospheric guiding. Nutronics’ ...

  4. Integrated Laser Beam Control

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF073007

    ABSTRACT: As High Energy Laser (HEL) systems move toward integration in operational systems, the importance of developing compact and rugged beam control system technology increases. The conventional approach for integration of beam clean-up and turbulence pre-compensation subsystems uses a stove-piped approach that leads to bulky, complex, and difficult to integrate systems. Nutronics has devel ...

  5. Green Function Inversion for Deep Atmospheric Turbulence Compensation

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: AF073002

    Optical Physics Company demonstrated the feasibility of Green''s Function Inversion (GFI) to accomplish high quality hit spot formation even under conditions of severe scintillation during the Phase I study. GFI provides many solutions with good strehl over a wide range of target area which can be selected to place and maintain the hit spot in a desired location. The sensing technique has been e ...

  6. High-Resolution Wide-Field Night Vision Goggle

    SBC: OPTICS 1, INC.            Topic: AF081010

    A High Resolution Wide Field of View Night Vision Goggle will be designed and fabricated. The goggle will take advantage of commercially available image intensification tube technology which will result in a higher performing, lower cost and more producible NVG than current state of the art Panoramic Night Vision Goggles. In addition, a new helmet connector and adjustment mechanism will be produ ...
