SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF18BT004
Wave-optics simulations are critical tools for analysis of laser directed energy systems. The primary method for conducting these simulations is to evaluate the Fresnel diffraction integral using the angular spectrum method based on the fast Fourier transform (FFT). While FFTs are considered computationally efficient, their use in the Fresnel integral results in difficult grid constraints includin ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF19AT005
Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system. Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target. In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction. Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillate ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP Topic: AF17AT008
MZA partnered with the Michigan Technological University (MTU) proposes development and testing of key components for our unified Atmospheric Refractivity and Turbulence Sensor (ARTS.) Software upgrades will be made to MZAâ€™s DELTA-Sky sensor to enable atmospheric refraction measurements in addition to existing turbulence profiling. The illuminator assembly to implement the ARTS probe laser ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: VULCAN WIRELESS, INC. Topic: AF18AT010
This proposal will outline a bi-directional software defined Free Space Optics (FSO) laser communications testbed with flexible optical elements and reprogrammable waveform and signal processing elements. Vulcan Wireless Inc. currently manufacturers a 1550nm, eye safe, software defined Laser Communications Testbed MD-LC-1 and will use this as a basis for the Phase 1 effort. We will also be teaming ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: AF12BT12
ABSTRACT: Experimental testing of dynamic models has been performed for more than 50 years and a wealth of data exists for individual models. However, this data is often either restricted as proprietary or is not suitable for CSE tool validation as a result of incomplete model or test information. Mainstream Engineering proposes to design, fabricate, and test a scaled fighter for aeroelastic ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NESS ENGINEERING, INC. Topic: AF09BT14
Recent advances in dielectric and magnetic materials have spurred renewed interest in the field of solid state pulse and RF burst generation using Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL) . The NLTL approach to HPM and UWB generation eliminates the need for an electron beam, vacuum system and magnets required in conventional HPM sources. Furthermore, the novel waveforms of NLTL generated pulses promi ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC)-Enabled Chip-Scale Atomic Devices (CSAD) for Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) ApplicationsSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: AF19BT001
Sensors based on chip-scale atomic devices (CSADs) offer portability, manufacturability, and high performance for precision navigation and timing (PNT) missions. Key systems for PNT including atom interferometric gyroscopes (AIG) and atomic clocks. Ongoing advances and innovations in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are directly relevant to CSADs. Different material bases have been used in PICs ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC Topic: AF19AT008
Large ground-based telescopes require adaptive optics (AO) to correct for distortions introduced by atmospheric turbulence. In order to function, the AO system must track a bright point source. Although a natural star may be used, full sky coverage requires an artificial beacon created with a laser. The most common type of laser guide star (LGS) employs the mesospheric layer of sodium atoms at an ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ULTIMARA INC Topic: AF08BT18
We propose to develop ultradense plasmonic integrated devices and circuits for optical interconnect compatible with the electronic circuitry. In our proposal, we will employ engineered metallic nanostructures that combine energy concentration by plasmonic lenses and retardation-based plasmonic resonances to even further boost the efficiency of materials exhibiting optical nonlinearity. These plas ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Theoretical Innovations in Combining Analytical, Experimental, and Computational Combustion Stability AnalysisSBC: HYPERCOMP INC Topic: AF09BT38
Combustion stability is an important consideration in the design of liquid rocket engines. While fundamental modes of unstable operation in simple geometries are easily identified using analytical methods, recent times have seen these methods greatly expand in scope, applied in semi-numerical format to increasingly complex geometries and flow situations. Much remains to be explored in understandin ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
