SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION Topic: AF11BT08
ABSTRACT: In this STTR Tech-X corporation in partnership with the University of Washington will improve a commercial plasma modeling tool, Nautilus, for simulating high-temperature multi-fluid plasmas for problems such as the field reversed configuration, dense plasma focus and the plasma opening switch. Semi-implicit algorithms will be implemented in Nautilus so that the speed of light and elec ...STTR Phase II 2014 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: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF08BT18
This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop ultradense, low-power plasmonic integration components and devices for on-chip manipulation and processing of optical signals. Both passive and active components will be studied. Detailed performance predictions will be obtained through finite element modeling (FEM) of the harmonic Maxwell’s equations. The FEM provides detai ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NUTRONICS, INC. Topic: AF18AT006
Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop and evaluate computational methods for a Volume Digital Holographic Wavefront Sensor (VDHWFS).VDHWFS based imaging offers the potential to provide the equivalent of wide field of view adaptive optics (AO) compensated imaging, but without the added complexity of AO components and hardware.Recent result for coherent imaging developed by ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NUTRONICS, INC. Topic: AF18AT006
Through the execution of our Phase 1 effort, Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University developed an improved means to optimize the Pellizzarri cost functional for coherent imaging using digital holography. Our algorithm developed during the Phase 1 effort accelerates convergence times by a factor of 20-40 for the majority of scenarios evaluated. Our proposed Phase 2 effort has a two-fold focus: ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. Topic: AF18AT006
Modern Directed Energy (DE) missions require target engagements at low elevation angles and long ranges.These engagement geometries require propagation through distributed-volume turbulence. To correct for distributed-volume turbulence effects, an estimation of the turbulence along the propagation path is required. Correcting for these image aberrations will improve the quality of the target image ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc. Topic: ST15C001
Nanoscale, material sensitive, imaging techniques are critical for progress in many disciplines as we learn to master science and technology at the smallest dimensions — on the nanometer to atomic-scale. However, progress in both science and technology is becoming increasingly limited by the constraints of current imaging techniques and metrologies. Fortunately, by combining coherent extreme UV ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
SBC: SRICO INC Topic: A18BT002
W-band millimeter waves have a number of important applications, including directed energy and, more recently, 5G FR2 network development. Reliable measurements of electric fields in the W-Band, while critical to the development of these applications, have proven challenging. This proposal addresses the development of an accurate, traceable, cost effective W-band RF field strength detector. The so ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseArmy

Optonicus proposes development of the Wide-Area Laser Additive Manufacturing in Metals with Adaptive Beam Shaping (WALAM-ABS) laser additive manufacturing (LAM) system. The WALAM-ABS metal additive manufacturing system will solve long-standing drawbacks imposed by current single-point selective laser melting LAM technology through the use of wide-area processing based on proprietary multi-beam fib ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
