13 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Innoflight, Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT23
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: The next-generation Global Positioning System (GPS) in congested and contested environments is expected to exploit Spectrum Holes (SH) in order to provide uninterrupted Position Navigation and Timing (PNT) service worldwide. ?Innoflight has teamed with the Air Force Institute of Technologys (AFITs) Autonomy and Navigation Technology (A...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: G a Tyler Assoc., Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT13
Budget: 08/14/14 - 11/07/16

ABSTRACT: Given the results obtained in the Phase I effort, we are now in a position to advance to the next generation of High Power Phased Array Transceiver Systems. The new approach proposed here is to use enough elements in the phased array to ensure that significant wavefront compensation performance can be obtained with only piston command...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Creare, Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-T008
Budget: 06/26/14 - 06/27/16

Proper design of Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. T...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-T12.04
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The key innovation in this project is the implementation of an Imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (IFTS) for in situ metal additive manufacturing process monitoring. In this Phase I STTR project, Mound Laser & Photonics Center, a developer of laser based additive manufacturing processing, will collaborate with the Air Force Institute of Tech...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Creare, Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-T008
Budget: 04/08/13 - 10/07/13

Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) have great potential for missile defense and other applications. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team proposes to develop a comprehensive physics-based ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: G a Tyler Assoc., Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT13
Budget: 01/31/13 - 10/31/13

ABSTRACT: The proposed research will develop a method of compensating atmospheric disturbances in the transmitting subapertures of a phased array transceiver operating in the infrared. The aero-optical boundary layer and atmospheric turbulence create phase variations within each subaperture. To compensate these variations, an adaptive optical ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: G a Tyler Assoc., Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT23
Budget: 09/27/12 - 12/29/12

ABSTRACT: Building on Phase I research that demonstrated the feasibility of target-based phasing for phased array beam control, the proposed Phase II research consists of analysis and a laboratory experiment. The four key topics of the research are phasing at the target, correcting stair mode (also known as array tilt), imaging the target with ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: G a Tyler Assoc., Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT41
Budget: 05/07/12 - 12/07/12

ABSTRACT: The problem of characterizing turbulence over long optical paths or over very strong shorter paths is challenging and unsolved. Current measurement systems do not address all aspects of the problem. Generally available measurements are incomplete in that they do not contain sufficient information at sufficient resolution to address al...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: C-K Technologies LLC

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT19
Budget: 12/01/11 - 12/01/13

ABSTRACT: The proposal outlines work and time tables associated with finalizing the development of wear model concepts developed in Phase I work to predict the wear of two materials sliding with respect to each other while being subjected to high velocities and/or high pressures. In parallel with this, a severe wear bench test fixture design wi...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: G a Tyler Assoc., Inc.

Institution: Air Force Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT23
Budget: 04/12/11 - 01/13/12

ABSTRACT: A design analysis is proposed to enhance the performance of conventional phased array weapon systems and ensure that traditionally required pointing and tracking functions can be maintained. A key feature of the proposed program is the inclusion of complimentary technologies that mitigate the limitations of existing concepts under con...
