Reduced-Cost Grinding and Polishing of Large Sapphire Windows

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Edward Fess, Senior Research Engineer – (585) 265-0160
Award Amount: $149,957.00
Abstract:
Developing faster more efficient processing methods for the fabrication of large sapphire windows has the potential to reduce their overall cost. The hardness of the material as well as its crystallographic orientation results in low material removal rates that lead to processing times longer than… More

Low-Drag Infrared Dome

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Edward Fess, Senior Research Engineer – (585) 265-0160
Award Amount: $149,537.00
Abstract:
Future missile systems will abandon the traditional hemi-spherical shape for shapes resembling a tangent Ogive. An ogive shaped dome has better aerodynamic capabilities than its spherical counterpart. This enables the missile to fly faster, farther, with more accuracy while also increasing its… More

Fabrication of Corrective Optics for Aerodynamic Domes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Edward Fess, Senior Research Engineer – (585) 265-0160
Award Amount: $149,015.00
Abstract:
Aerodynamically shapes missile domes have many benefits over traditional spherically shaped domes. To correct for optical aberrations presented by this non-traditional shape, free form corrective optics are required between the dome and the image sensor. The corrective optics shape may be in the… More

Fabrication of Corrective Optics for Conformal Windows and Domes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
