This paper describes the basic design, refinement and verification using finite element analysis (FEA), and operational simulation using the virtual test bed (VTB), of a range of candidate linear machines for an electromagnetic aircraft launching system (EMALS) for the aircraft carrier of the future. Choices of basic machine format, and procedures for(More)
A short-pulse, two-color Yb:fiber laser system has been developed for mid-infrared generation. To date, 20 microW of average power at a wavelength of approximately 18 microm is generated by difference-frequency mixing 300 mW average power from the two-color Yb:fiber amplifier. The mid-infrared power was not limited by two-photon absorption, allowing it to(More)
This paper describes an approach to solving differential equations based on a block diagram solver. We call this solver Simulated Analog Computer (SAC) because our computational model took inspiration from the structure of the Analog Computers.. The model of analog computation offers an elegant representation of the solution to systems of differential(More)
