Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: MDA14-016
Budget: 09/19/16 - 09/18/18

Two-phase cooling systems are an enabling technology for high energy lasers deployed on aircraft, but the flow morphology can be influenced by the accelerations of airborne platforms, affecting the thermal and flow performance of the cooler. Microchannel coolers using low Bond number coolants can reduce these effects, since surface tension force...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA14-016
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The use of the heat of vaporization of the coolant can significantly reduce the required flow rate, and this reduction flows down throughout the thermal management system. Two-phase systems, however, are subject to buoyancy effects which can make them vulnerable to high-g maneuvers of military aircraft. Two-phase microchannel coolers can be de...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-046
Budget: 06/28/13 - 12/28/13

Science Research Laboratory, Inc. (SRL) will develop a prototype Extinction Imager (EI) suitable for shipboard installation based on the research of Janet Shields (Scripps, UCSD). The Shields EI uses radiance contrast measurements of the sky/ocean interface at the horizon to determine the aerosol extinction coefficient along a horizontal path. T...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB122-005
Budget: 12/11/12 - 09/30/13

The objective of this effort is to increase the power of 20% fill-factor laser diode (LD) bars from the present state-of-the-art (SOA) of 60-70 W/bar to 600 W/bar a DARPA hard ten-fold increase. This revolutionary and disruptive increase in the power/bar will be accomplished by increasing the power at which SOA LDs fail, namely, increasing ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: N02-207
Budget: 08/03/10 - 06/01/12

Science Research Laboratory proposes to develop a pulsed, tunable mid-IR source with average power greater than 55 watts and high pulse repetition frequency (20 kHz). The program is divided into a baseline and two options. In the baseline program we will develop a continuous-wave laser operating at a wavelength of 2.1 microns with a power of app...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: NSF-TOPIC 1
Budget: 07/09/10 - 09/20/12

Laser diodes (LD) have many desirable properties, e.g. small size and high electrical-to-optical efficiency. For ease of use, most applications require coupling the LD photons to an optical fiber. Attaching the LD-die to a heat-sink is a key packaging procedure. The heat-sink material is generally copper since it is the lowest thermal-resist...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Boston University

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST081-011
Budget: 07/07/10 - 10/01/12

In this STTR project, Science Research Laboratory (SRL) and Boston University Photonics Center (BU Photonics) will develop a revolutionary optical technology for detecting localized increases in temperature on time scales ranging from nanoseconds to microseconds. Localized diode heating is a critical factor limiting the lifetime of LDs; such hea...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: OSD05-D03
Budget: 05/19/10 - 02/15/12

There is a critical need for revolutionary approaches for thermal management of 21st century semiconductor devices and hardware, such as advanced high performance computers, high-power laser diodes and solar cells for the conversion of sun light to renewable energy. The one limiting factor for all of the above extremely important and compelling ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: NSF 06-598
Budget: 07/29/09 - 10/30/11

We propose to develop a revolutionary technological innovation that will significantly increase the efficiency, lifetime and reliability of gas-turbine engines. Despite the tremendous improvements in coating technologies to enable huge increases in operational temperatures, continued advances using conventional, purely materials-science approach...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-027
Budget: 05/08/09 - 11/30/11

We propose to continue developing a potentially revolutionary technological innovation: advanced coatings that will significantly increase the efficiency, lifetime and reliability of gas-turbine engines. In addition, these coatings can be applied to a range of existing and future military hardware that require protection from harsh environments....
