Award List:

MEMS-Based Optical Beam Steering System for Multi-Color 2D Spot Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Research Institution:
DUKE UNIV.
RI Contact:
Phillip Grosshans
Abstract:
Optically addressing a large number of atoms trapped in a periodic lattice would be a critical missing technology necessary to achieve scalable quantum computation. A micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) based beam steering optical system is proposed to meet the needs of this topic. The system… More

Wide Field of Regard Imaging System using MEMS mirrors

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$98,950.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Jungsang Kim, President
Abstract:
We propose an optical imaging system utilizing a pair of MEMS mirrors to achieve a wide field of regard and zooming characteristics. This system is anticipated to meet the challenging constraints put forth in this program: a total field of regard of up to 80 degrees, fast scanning speeds, and up to… More

MEMS-Based Optical Beam Steering System for Multi-Color 2D Spot Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / STTR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$718,082.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Felix Lu, Vice-President
Research Institution:
DUKE UNIV.
RI Contact:
Judith Dillon
Abstract:
A MEMS based multicolor beam steering system for generating 2D spot arrays has been demonstrated. For effective quantum computation applications, the optical system requires further optimization and refinement. In phase II, parameters such as beam scanning frame rates, insertion loss, system… More

Snapshot Raman Spectral Imager

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,852.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Bob Guenther, Senior Scientist
Research Institution:
Duke University
RI Contact:
Phillip Grosshans
Abstract:
Applied Quantum Technologies along with its university partner Duke University propose a coded-aperture, multi-aperture snapshot Raman imager. By combining an innovative optical design and advanced compressed sensing algorithms, a snapshot system provides dwell times much shorter than conventional… More

Terahertz Signature Modeling for Kill Assessment and Warhead Materials Identification

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,302.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator:
Bob Guenther, Senior Scientist
Abstract:
The physical phenomena that dominates the use of submillimeter (SMM) spectra for the analysis of missile intercepts is the rapid cooling of the post-intercept gas and debris field and its impact on the SMM spectral signatures and post-impact chemistry. It is likely that the initial high… More

Snapshot Raman Spectral Imager

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / STTR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$749,337.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Bob Guenther, Senior Scientist – (919) 616-1809
Research Institution:
Duke University
RI Contact:
Phillip Grosshans
Abstract:
Applied Quantum Technologies proposes the development of a snapshot Raman spectral imager for chemical imaging applications with a 1-5 meter standoff. Standoff chemical imaging methods are typically point-based, making scan times impractical for situations where a wide area needs to be surveyed. The… More

Terahertz Signature Modeling for Kill Assessment and Warhead Materials Identification

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$999,311.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Bob Guenther, Senior Scientist – (919) 403-0926
Abstract:
Our Phase I study provided quantitative results that showed feasibility for scenarios of interest. It included both the details of signatures and the sensitivity for THz sensor systems with realistic parameters. In Phase II we will extend these results to create a non-scenario specific model that… More

Micro-camera Composite Focal Plane Array for Night Passive Persistent Surveillance

Award Year / Program / Phase:
