  1. Multilayer Nanocomposites for Selective Radiofrequency and Microwave Frequency Shielding and Efficient Band Pass Filters

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF131109

    ABSTRACT: The development of robust, ultra-light weight, low-cost electrically tunable nanocomposites with the ability to efficiently absorb the electromagnetic radiation in strategic bands in the RF and microwave region is anticipated to provide valuable armor for electronic devices that suffer from electromagnetic interference. In this proposal, we demonstrate a combined nanotechnology, chemist ...

  2. Coherent Imaging Laser Source

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF131150

    ABSTRACT: Coherent imaging systems have the capability to provide high-resolution 3D imagery for target identification at stand-off ranges. These systems require relatively short pulse width, transform-limited linewidth pulsed lasers with high pulse energy to illuminate the target of interest. Here we proposed to demonstrate and build near 1550nm single frequency fiber laser with pulse energy of ...

  3. An Efficient CFD Algorithm for Store Separation Prediction

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: N08118

    This Small Business Innovation Research project proposes to develop a hybrid Cartesian grid/gridless solver for fast prediction of store separation. In this approach, multi-block structured Cartesian grids with varying grid resolution are used to cover the majority of the computational domain except near the body surfaces for taking advantages of ease of grid generation and computational efficienc ...

  4. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT: In this SBIR effort we will develop a packaging process and demonstrate (Phase I) a prototype of high power Photodiode (PD) that has a normal incident, pigtailed fiber input and a coaxial RF output that operates from DC to>60GHz. We will apply and extend (Phase II) the aforementioned packaging process to single PD, balanced PD and array of PDs that work from DC through entire W-band. De ...

  5. A Tool to Improve the Prediction of Resonant Stress in Turbine Components

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: AF131162

    ABSTRACT: This SBIR project proposes to develop a computational aeroelasticity tool for improving the prediction of both aerodynamic forcing and aerodynamic damping and thereby resonant stresses in turbine components. This will be achieved by developing an interface between our CFD software, FlowSimulatorTM, and a commercially available FEM software, ANSYS. The validity of this computational aero ...

  6. Thick Composite Crack Analysis


    Advanced thick composites are increasingly used in components for defense applications as well as commercial structures. Component level structural testing and analysis of advanced composites is prohibitively expensive and time consuming. Instead, using robust and accurate computational tools complemented by experiments at key stages is a viable and cost-effective option. The proposed project will ...

  7. Scanning SCOTS Measurements for Corrective Optics

    SBC: ARIZONA OPTICAL SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: N132124

    We propose to develop an optical system to measure arch-shaped corrective optics using the Software Configurable Optical Tests System (SCOTS) developed by the proposing team for freeform aspherics. The full arch is measured by scanning subaperture regions and stitching the data. SCOTS measurements use video images of an optic under test illuminated with modulated patterns from a digital display. P ...

  8. Scale-Up Production of Large Spinel Reconnaissance Windows

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N132125

    This SBIR Navy Phase I Project proposes to scale up MER"s window technology to make larger, stronger, monolithic windows from spinel polycrystalline ceramic. This proposal presents a solution to the Navy"s need for durable, monolithic, infrared-transmitting sensor windows with hot pressed (HP) sizes up to 28"x30"x0.6"for reconnaissance purposes. The larger size window is limited by the available e ...

  9. Satellite Optical Backplane

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF103097

    ABSTRACT: there is a clear need for a radically new interconnect architecture that minimizes the routing delay through the backplane to enable increased performance, reduced costs, and faster time to market. To this end, we propose the development of a space compatible optically interconnected backplane with reconfigurable routing fabric. By removing the electrical interconnections between logi ...

  10. Low Cost Cockpit Head Tracking and Gestural Recognition

    SBC: KUTTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12078

    As a developer of Unmanned Aerial System Ground Control Stations, the U.S. Army"s Bi-Directional Remote Video Transceiver (BDRVT), and several other manned-aircraft technologies, Kutta is keenly aware of human machine interface (HMI) issues inside military cockpits. Based on an extensive Phase I hardware analysis that tested multiple Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) laser-based technologies similar ...
