  1. Adaptive mask flow photometer

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used t ...

  3. Validation of Low Hydrogen Embrittlement (LHE) Alkaline Zinc Nickel Electroplating for Steel and Aluminum Electrical Connectors, Back-Shells and Components

    SBC: Engineering And Software System Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF161007

    Many of the US Department of Defense (DOD) electrical connectors, back-shells and components currently contain cadmium (Cd).Cadmium is a known carcinogen.Furthermore, the cadmium is typically conversion coated with a hex-chromate which is also hazardous.Both the cadmium plating process and its subsequent conversion coating have been proven to be toxic (unlike other processes such as chromium plati ...

  6. Highly Parallel LIDAR-based Automated Target Recognition

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF161139

    To address the Air Force need for an automated target recognition (ATR) capability that uses Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance the development of the Highly Parallel LIDAR-based Automated Target Recognition (PLATR) system, which was proven feasible in Phase I. PLATR is based on an innovative combination of target isolation, target pose estim ...

  7. Flexible Sensor Network and Its Embedded Integrated Circuits for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF16AT03

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensors and electronics used by ...

  8. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...

  9. Infrared Micro-Laser Arrays for Target Image Projection

    SBC: Attollo Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K),high resolution (2Kx2K), response time < 4 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux.MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas.MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range.Resistor arrays suffer from low frame rates ...

  10. Low-Defect GeSn and SiGeSn for Integrated High-Performance SWIR and MWIR Optoelectronics

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF16AT28

    Advanced imaging techniques and, novel intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) methods are of great interest to the U.S. Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, but associated high-costs of III-V and II-VI MWIR and SWIR materials prohibit their practical widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. In this program, we intend to investigate ...
