  1. Broadband and efficient fiber-optic and free-space laser beam homogenizer

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N181011

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to develop an efficient, broadband (0.96.0 m) beam homogenizer capable or transforming single and multi-mode Gaussian and non-Gaussian beams into a uniform, top-hat profile. During Phase I, PSI will assess single and dual element optical designs for the homogenizer based upon light shaping diffuser and compound parabolic reflector components, comparing measured and ...

  2. All-Fiber Wavelength Independent Beam Homogenizer

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: N181011

    Q-Peak proposes an entirely fiberized, all-glass, broadband beam homogenizer that is brightness preserving, has extremely low insertion loss, and does not require any change in the current optical train of deployed systems. The proposed homogeizer is CTE matched, alignment free, and spliceable. The proposed homogenizer design is wavelength independent, requires no free-space components, and has be ...

  4. Riptide Low Cost Persistent Environmental Measurement Autonomous Undersea Vehicle (PEM-AUV)

    SBC: Riptide Autonomous Solutions, LLC            Topic: N181012

    Through the innovative design of the Riptide micro-UUV, Riptide has demonstrated that smaller, much more capable AUVs can be used to cost-effectively match or surpass these long-standing platform capabilities and perform these legacy AUV missions at a fraction of the cost with greater persistence. Riptide proposes this new Persistent Environmental Measurement AUV (PEM-AUV) would fully satisfy PMA- ...

  5. Two-Dimensional Surface Emitting Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) Quantum Cascade Laser Arrays for High-Power Applications

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: N181016

    Significant progress has been made in recent years in improving the efficiency and output powers of quantum cascade lasers (QCLs). With the inherent low efficiency of QCL devices, there is a limit to the amount of extra power that can be coaxed out of a device before the amount of waste heat generated overwhelms the available cooling. In order to increase the power output of these devices, and sim ...

  6. Learning Upgrades to Mission planning ENvironments (LUMEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N181018

    Mission planning is critical to successful deployment of military power. Mission planning is a complex task that requires the detailed orchestration of many subcomponents and elements of human performance in varied, real world environments. This task is becoming yet more complex and challenging as the DoD begins to explore missions that include both manned vehicles and unmanned platforms and incor ...

  7. Superhydrophobic and oleophobic coating for aluminum heat exchangers based on textured surfaces

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: N181019

    Aluminum heat exchangers suffer from reduced performance and increased maintenance due to fouling. Of the coatings currently available for heat exchangers, most are severely fouled when the coating surface comes in contact with oils and dust. A superhydrophobic and oleophobic coating would reduce fouling and make cleaning easier. Nano Terra has developed a coating for aluminum parts, called NT-AL, ...

  8. Innovative Material (and Application Method) for a Hydrophobic/Oleophobic Coating to an Aluminum-Bodied Heat Exchanger

    SBC: DropWise Technologies Corp.            Topic: N181019

    An erosion-resistant high-temperature fouling release coating will be developed to improve cleanability of an aluminum fin-tube heat exchanger. To meet the requirements, an organosilane-based coating with pendant perfluorinated functionality will be utilized. These materials have been used successfully in many high-temperature and abrasion-resistant industrial and military applications. These mate ...

  9. High-Power, Low-Frequency, Textured PMN-PT Underwater Projector

    SBC: MASSA PRODUCTS CORPORATION            Topic: N181020

    There is an ongoing need to improve the design of low-frequency, high-power, broadband sonar transducers for use in A-sized sonobuoys. Desired improvements include lowering the frequency, increasing the power, increasing bandwidth, reducing size, reducing weight, and lowering cost. Most sonobuoy applications currently utilize flextensional or flexural transducers that use piezoelectric PZT type ce ...

  10. Low SWAP, eye safe LIDAR for airborne detection of periscopes in clutter

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N181022

    To decrease the probability of false alarms encountered in radar detection of periscopes in the cluttered environment presented by operation in littoral regions, the Navy seeks to develop a complementary technology to existing periscope search radars. Physical Sciences Inc., in collaboration with our subsidiary Q-Peak Inc., proposes to develop a SWIR lidar for long-range detection of periscopes in ...
