  1. Non-Contact, 3-D Measurement for Aircraft Surfaces

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In an Air Logistics Center (ALC) environment, where modification and maintenance of fighter (and other) aircraft is performed, there exists an urgent need for the efficient and accurate verification of work performed. This is of utmost importance whenwork is performed on the airfoil or control surfaces. Current techniques using mechanical templates, triangulation, mechanical articulated linkage ...

  2. Precision Targeting System

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In air-to-air and air-to-ground missions, target detection and identification can be extremely difficult, especially at extended ranges. There is a need for a precision targeting system which can operate in a high-altitude environment and detect/ID/locatethese deep-hide targets. Photon-X proposes a new and innovative passive EO technique which can provide new innovative target characteristics fo ...

  3. Attitude Control System for Laser Lightcraft

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reducing the cost of launching payloads into low earth orbit by a factor of 10 or 100 requires revolutionary changes in launching architectures. The Laser Lightcraft holds the potential for such savings by placing the bulk of the propulsion system on theground by using a ground-based laser to provide the impulse for lifting the payload. Attitude control for the Lightcraft is critical. This Phas ...

  5. A Portable Thermal Analysis Microscope Equipped with Multiple Excitation Sources

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The development of a novel NDI technique is proposed based upon the success of the Phase I program. The technique uses a unique embodiment of transient thermography to detect disbonds and delamination flaws in boron/epoxy skins bonded to aluminumhoneycomb cores. Feasibility of the technique was clearly demonstrated under Phase I funding. In Phase II we will refine the parameters of the process ...

  6. A High Performance Digital Ionosonde System

    SBC: SCION ASSOC.            Topic: N/A

    The ionosonde is a familiar instrument in radio science, with hundreds of systems around the world providing a near-continuous characterization of ionosphere configuration and dynamics. For DoD, the ionosonde is a crucial logistical asset, particularlyfor operational communications prediction. However, the majority of current ionosonde instruments suffer from hardware and operational shortcoming ...
