Abstract:

This three-phase SBIR project will develop an actively managed circadian rhythm berth-light fixture that meets the stringent requirements of the Navy for shipboard replacement of conventional fluorescent fixtures. The fixture will combine high-efficiency solid-state lighting (SSL) and an intuitive user interface that guides the user in the timed application of blue light to self-manage sleep cycles. The electronic design will leverage commercially available components to achieve cost-efficiencies, and will be flexible and upgradeable to support additional features such as central control. SSL-based lighting will also benefit the Navy with improved reliability and endurance and by reducing the total life-cycle cost of berth lighting.
