Award List:

High-Speed, Low- Power, Highly Integrated, Wide Wavelength Range Tunable Laser for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) Networks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: David Drury, Chief Technology Officer
Award Amount: $79,942.00
Abstract:
Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical networks are seen as a leading candidate for data avionic systems communication link needs. Optical burst mode switching uses wavelength addressing, replacing electronic switching. In this project we propose to develop a hybrid burst mode transmitter,… More

Satellite Optical Backplane

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: David Drury, CTO – (724) 933-8895
Award Amount: $99,968.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Data rates necessary to support the warfighter continue to increase. New satellite interconnects are needed which have minimal signal distribution weight and power overhead. Optical backplanes which accommodate these new"short haul"payload processing and"long… More

High-Speed, Low- Power, Highly Integrated, Wide Wavelength Range Tunable Laser for Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) Networks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Eric Helmsen, VP, Engineering – (724) 933-8875
Award Amount: $749,989.00
Abstract:
Navy aircraft are currently using proprietary, size, weight and power inefficient copper interconnects for avionics. These interconnects are costly for the Navy to maintain and to retrofit. New solutions are needed that are standards-based, easily upgraded and maintained, and leverage the efficiency… More

SIGINT Interfaces and Processing Infrastructure for Submarines

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: David Drury, CTO – (724) 933-8895
Award Amount: $149,915.00
Abstract:
To meet the Navy"s need for innovative transport interfaces, Accipiter Systems is proposing a unified passive optical core-based transport system able to provide connectivity over distances greater than 200 feet between the elements of an Electronic Warfare System (EWS), namely RF digitizing… More
