Award List:

Ship-to-Ship High-Bandwidth, Secure Free-Space Optical Communications Using Adaptive Optics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: J.Elon (Buzz) Graves, Founder and VP of Optics
Award Amount: $69,993.00
Abstract:
"The objective of the project is to develop a small, very-high bandwidth optical communications link for the Navy ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore applications. AOptix Technologies has developed a novel Free Space Optical communication system that usesAdaptive Optics to dynamically correct atmospheric… More

Development of a Scintillation-Insensitive Curvature Wavefront Sensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: J. Elon Graves, Vice President, Optical H
Award Amount: $69,848.00
Abstract:
Wave-front sensors are key elements of adaptive optics systems that compensate for aberrations encountered by a laser beam as it propagates through the atmosphere. Removing such aberrations are critical for applications such as high energy laser weapons,high bandwidth laser communication systems and… More

Principal Investigator: J. Elon (Buzz) Graves, Founder and VP of Optics
Award Amount: $69,993.00
Abstract:
The objective of the project is to develop a small, very-high bandwidth optical communications link for the Missile Defense Agency for data telemetry during missile tests. AOptix Technologies has developed a novel Free Space Optical communication systemthat uses Adaptive Optics to dynamically… More

Ship-to-Ship High-Bandwidth, Secure Free-Space Optical Communications Using Adaptive Optics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Steven Drenker, Director, Business Develo
Award Amount: $601,529.00
Abstract:
AOptix Technologies proposes to build and demonstrate a laser communication system that uses adaptive optics to mitigate atmospheric turbulence. Lasercom systems require accurate pointing capability to direct the narrow optical beam and compensate for platform vibration and jitter. In AOptix… More

Anti-Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) Technologies

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: J. E. Graves, Founder and VP, Optics Hardware
Award Amount: $99,975.00
Abstract:
This solicitation seeks to apply novel Adaptive Optics (AO) technologies and high energy light based weapons to protect U.S. forces from Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG) attacks. We plan to use our knowledge of AO to detect the launch, track and acquire the RPG projectile and then destroy or disable… More
