Contract: NAS1-03033
Award Amount: $70,000.00
 

Abstract:

Feasibility testing of a novel high-throughput, tilt-compensated interferometer design is proposed. The Phase I effort will demonstrate a prototype and two manufacturing techniques for lowering costs. The novel optical design offers excellent interferometric stability, inexpensive manufacture and permanent alignment. The design is attractive for remote sensing from both aircraft and spacecraft, as well as commercial application. There is at least one mission in the hardware testing phase, which this combination of optical stability and stiffness would havegreatly benefited. The design has high throughput appropriate for remote sensing, but would also have many industrial and medical applications, particularly non-invasive measurement of blood glucose levels and other human metabolites. Manning Applied Technology has the expertise to enhance the performance of the interferometer with powerful DSP hardware and software, making it more attractive for commercial application.
