Award List:

Optical Parametric Oscillator for Airborne Lidar

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Eli Margalith
Award Amount: $69,800.00

Optical Parametric Oscillator for Airborne Lidar

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Eli Margalith
Award Amount: $600,000.00
Abstract:
Present DIAL systems are limited in range, some require excessive maintenance, and all are limited as to the number and variety of gases that they can interrogate and diagnose. We propose to design and build a versatile, single laser transmitter system that will serve to monitor all the gases and… More
