  1. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: ECSQUARED INC.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Petal is a novel bio-solar proposal to generate power using plant photosynthetic proteins combined to nanotubes bonded to a conductive substrate.The use of this architecture should allow for high efficiencies in the capture and harvest of photons and the generation of solar power in a very flexible format.This format will allow for scaling from micro to industrial scales.

  2. Nanophotonic Optical Emulator for Complex Electromagnetic Maneuverability (EM) Systems

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N19AT008

    The radar cross section (RCS) of a platform, such as a ship or a submarine, is of particular importance for the Navy since it allows the detection and identification of the vessel. Minimizing the radar reflection improves the stealth properties of the vessel making it more difficult to detect. The observed RCS can also be used to identify a target by comparing it with a database of known profiles. ...

  3. Near-IR Emulator for Complex EM Systems (NICE)

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N19AT008

    The NP Photonics/UMassD team proposes an ultra-compact coherent NIR RCS measurement range. We plan to develop a novel system for rapid 3D printing of nanostructures for emulating complex EM systems, and use coherent NIR light for scaled RCS measurements. In the NIR region, the EM properties of complex RF systems are measurable by reducing the size by factors of magnitude. The advantages of this ap ...

  4. 3-Band ps Pulse High Energy Compact Laser System for Marine Wave Boundary Layer Atmospheric Characterization Instrument Development

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N19AT009

    Gaining a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of maritime turbulence and laser light propagation in the marine boundary is required to optimize the performance of critical communication and defensive and offensive laser light engagements. Increased understanding of beam propagation through the turbulent flows of the marine layer will help the US Navy improve the performance of beam o ...

  5. Marine Atmospheric Modeling, Data Collection, Visualization & Metrological Toolset for Submarine Electromagnetic (EM) Maneuverability

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N19AT015

    This overall research program is oriented towards a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of meteorological properties of the marine wave boundary layer (MWBL) and laser light propagation in the marine environment. To advance this goal requires developing an experimental data base derived from measurements using specialized lasers, instruments, and sensors over electromagnetic propagat ...

  6. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas


    Missiles experience a wide range of thermal and mechanical environments due to the large variety of flight profiles.Since the missile radome is often the aerodynamic leading edge, it undergoes significant thermal and mechanical loading. The radome must survive the dynamic pressure loading, thermal shock and environmental erosion from airborne particulates (rain / sand) while performing as an elect ...
