  1. Ultrafast Hybrid Active Materials and Devices for Compact RF Photonics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT25

    Optical components for RF-photonic applications such as communication satellites, avionics, optical networks, sensors and phase array radar will require high speed, high capacity and low power. Due to the nature of crystalline electro-optic materials (LiNbO3, GaAs, InP, etc.) today’s commercial electro-optical devices do not perform well above 40 GHz. This limitation can be circumvented by utili ...

  2. Silicon-Based Nanomembrane Photonic and Electronic Components

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF08BT08

    This proposal deals with advanced design architectures for realizing silicon-based reconfigurable and stackable photonic analog signal processing engines supported on flexible or flat substrates using crystalline Si-based nanomembrane technology. Silicon nanomembranes are single crystals of Si that have been released from SOI substrates and redeposited on foreign flexible or flat substrates enabli ...

  3. Accelerated Linear Algebra Solvers for Multi-Core GPU-Based Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT18

    Many large-scale numerical simulations can be broken down into common mathematical routines. While the applications may differ, they often need to perform standard functions such as system solves, Fourier transforms, or eigenvalue calculations. Consequently, producing fast, efficient implementations of these methods will benefit a broad range of Air Force applications. Graphics Processing Units (G ...

  4. Integrated Chip Optical CDMA for Transport Layer Security

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N102123

    Optical CDMA is most suitable to be applied to high speed LAN to achieve contention-free, zero delay access, where traffic tends to be bursty rather than continuous. Channel assignment is much easier with CDMA. CDMA isolates irregular channels so that they do not influence other channels, CDMA can be efficiently used in conjunction with TDMA and WDMA on multimedia communication networks where mult ...

  5. Lossless Non-Blocking Single-Mode Fiber Optic Wavelength Router

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N101030

    In this Phase I SBIR effort we will investigate the feasibility of design and optimization of an optically interconnected optical router using a photonic crystal-based switching fabric and by carefully engineering the spatial and temporal properties of such periodic structures. We will take multiple design parameters into account to optimize the optical backplane to account for variations in opera ...

  6. Ultrahigh Temperature Materials for Missile Defense Propulsion and Aerothermal Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA09T002

    This proposal addresses the requirement to significantly improve the affordability, maintainability and performance of KKV DACS components. Exothermics and their Phase 1 partner Southern Research Institute will endeavor to increase the performance, lower the cost and enhance the technical property characteristics of SDACS and hypersonic components by examining the use of a new class of ultrahigh t ...

  7. Machine Tool Genome Project

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    This project describes research that will lead to the commercialization of the Tool Dashboard, a new technique for pre-process milling parameter selection. In this approach, dynamic models of the cutting tool and holder will be analytically coupled to spindle-machine measurements to predict the tool point dynamics. Given this information, stability lobe diagrams, which display stable and unstable ...

  8. Dynamic Error Measurement for Large Machine Tools

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    Existing machine tool metrology methods measure the quasistatic errors of a machine tool and, thus, evaluate its static positioning accuracy. Yet machine tools are dynamic, they do not stop and pause in an effort to reach a programmed position. Additionally, current techniques do not identify all of the errors, many of which significantly impact the volumetric accuracy of the machine. Almost immed ...

  9. Inexpensive, Portable Sensors for Chemical-Biological Agent Detection

    SBC: Latel Corporation            Topic: SB093013

    In modern battlespace, deployment of chemical and biological agents by our adversaries is a threat that needs to be addressed. These agents are cheap to manufacture and easily available. Their effects can be devastating to our troops. Detecting chemical and biological agents often require bulky equipment in a laboratory. Identifying the agents could take many minutes in such facilities. A more eff ...

  10. Affordable Broadband Radome

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N101034

    MSI proposes to develop a low cost broadband radome solution for use in future supersonic missile applications as well as investigate/demonstrate multi-functional capabilities that a composite radome wall offers by optimizing laminate configurations and frequency selective surface (FSS) materials. MSI fabricates radomes, and uses novel, near net techniques to build the thickness of the radome to t ...
