The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Repair of HighTemperature RAM Coatings


    A coating system is proposed comprised of1. Gradient pigment particles having an iron core encapsulated with a mixed intermetallic-oxide layer and a further silicon-based layer for enhanced bonding to the matrix2. A matrix raw material that is thermally-sprayable using conventional technology that partially cures to an oxide during application and becomes fully cured on first use3. Thermal spray e ...

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

    SBC: ACUITY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A shape capture system for field and industrial capture of surface contours and discontinuous shapes is proposed. The system will provide accuracy of 0.01 inch or better at over 1 million points distributed over a region 100 inches across from three ormore images obtained with a high resolution handheld digital camera. A tripod or bench mounted projector projects a pattern onto the surface from w ...

  3. High Energy Laser Diagnostics for Space Based Applications

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aculight proposes to develop a novel laser source that will enable fundamental spectroscopic studies of Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) to be performed by the Air Force, providing vital design information for the development of high power HF lasers. The source willbe a continuous wave optical parametric oscillator (OPO) pumped by a distributed feedback fiber laser. It will be designed to be capable of 500m ...

  4. Dual use, non-cryogenic operating temperature, mid-infrared laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Future IRCM laser transmitters are being developed based on optically pumped GaSb mid-infrared semiconductor laser, however, the current technology requires the laser to be operated at cryogenic temperature. Aculight and MIT Lincoln Laboratory propose toinvestigate methods to increase the operating temperature of these semiconductor lasers, which will dramatically decrease the cost of the laser t ...

  5. Space Qualified One Micron Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Yb:SFAP laser system, using a novel resonator scheme, that will provide over 1 J per pulse output at 100 Hz at high efficiency, in a package far more compact, lower mass and efficient that conventional systems. The high-pulse-energy poweroscillator architecture is especially suited to space platforms where weight, volume, cooling and efficiency are particularly important. The propos ...

  6. High Power Mid-Infrared (2-10 Micron) Diode Laser Development

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Advanced IRCM lasers and systems, currently in development, require mid-infrared semiconductor lasers with very non-standard design parameters. The proposed effort will investigate the performance of commercially grown GaSb based materials and optimizetheir performance for use in unique laser transmitter designs, which will be directly traceable to future IRCM systems. The proposed mid-infrare ...

  7. High power single frequency source for cavity ring-down spectroscopy

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aculight proposes to develop a laser source that will enable NIST to perform highly sensitive water vapor detection via cavity ring-down spectroscopy. The source will operate over a wavelength region centered at 1380nm. It will be based upon frequency conversion of a single frequency fiber source using an optical parametric oscillator (OPO).The performance of the source in terms of several critica ...

  8. Compact, High Power Midwave Infrared Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Navy requires high power laser sources that can provide multi-Watt output power levels in the mid-infrared for optical countermeasures of anti-ship missiles. Current state of art laser transmitters, consisting of diode-pumped solid-state lasers andoptical parametric oscillators, have demonstrated the required optical power and wavelength in the mid-infrared spectral region. However, these la ...

  9. Integrated Laser Electronics

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Significant cost reductions are needed in the cost of IRCM laser transmitters to improve their affordability and adoption. A COTS based laser electronics module that can be tightly integrated with a low cost mid-infrared laser will be developed andenvironmentally tested in the Phase I effort. In addition, capability for advanced waveform generation will be incorporated into the electronics provi ...

  10. Innovative Technology Development for Laser Radar (LADAR)

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build a novel eyesafe fiber laser source capable of operating over the 20-100 kHz repetition rate range. Using a combination of COTS technology from the telecom industry and amplifier designs based upon recent developments at Naval ResearchLabs, the source will deliver 7-10 Watts while maintaining pulse duration
