Agency: DOD
Contract: N62583-11-P-0578
Award Amount: $79,909.00
 

Abstract:

This SBIR effort will evaluate the present state of the fiber optic illumination technology developed for US Navy applications, the new developments in high intensity light sources for illumination and for other applications, the optical fibers used for high energy transport applications, the coupling optics, and the cable designs to determine how these can be utilized and enhanced for the antenna towers lighting system. The environment where these lights will have to operate will be analyzed to insure that all the factors are taken into consideration as the path to a solution is developed. The outcome of the Phase I effort will be the design of a fiber optic based illumination system capable to meet the requirements of the antenna tower lights. Areas requiring further development will be identified, including the performance levels that need to be achieved to make this a system ready for implementation.
