Fiber Optic Interconnect Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Philip Lacovara, President
Award Amount: $98,476.00
Abstract:
"The proposed fiber-optic terminus provides high-bandwidth connectivity to an optical transceiver on an underwater vehicle or other platform. Unique technology is used to provide full azimuthal coverage with no moving parts for acquisition, tracking,transmission and reception. The receiver, in… More

Sensor Technology for Anti-Submarine Warfare

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Philip Lacovara, President
Award Amount: $446,677.00
Abstract:
This laser utilizes an unique cavity and pumping design that will permit a much smaller, lighter-weight and lower power-consumption single-frequency laser. The cavity provides proper mode matching and cavity length using a much shorter distance thantypical linear laser cavities, and the pump… More

Optical Communications for ASW and MIW Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Philip Lacovara, President
Award Amount: $69,995.00
RI Contact: John Chaffee
Abstract:
The proposed effort will investigate optimized modulation formats, error-correction codes and coherent operation to improve high-bandwidth undersea communications. Analysis suggests that these methods can provide significant improvement over current optical communications methods.

Optical Communications for ASW and MIW Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Philip Lacovara, President
Award Amount: $449,928.00
RI Contact: Amy Herman
Abstract:
The proposed Phase II STTR program will implement forward-error correction and other processing, as well as coherent transceiver operation, in order to improve the performance of underwater communications systems. Significant reduction in the bit-error rate will be demonstrated under both… More
