Award List:

Transmitted Wavefront Metrology of Multiple-Layer Dome Optics Using a Scanning Low-Coherence Dual Interferometer (SLCDI)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Damon Diehl, Optical Engineer / Scientist
Award Amount: $69,873.00
Abstract:
We propose a scanning low-coherence dual interferometery system that can accurately measure the optical thickness of hemispheric optical domes used as missile windows. The system has the unique capability to measure the optical thicknesses of individual layers within domes composed of multiple… More

Metrology of Corrective Optics for Conformal Windows and Domes Using Scanning Low-Coherence Dual-Wavelength Interferometry

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Damon Diehl, Optical Scientist
Award Amount: $149,395.00
Abstract:
As technology advances, there is increasing demand for higher quality optics with fewer aberrations. Aspheric optics meet these needs, but at present there are no practical commercial systems to test these lenses. This keeps the costs high and stifles the market. ASE Optics proposes to develop a… More

Metrology of Corrective Optics for Conformal Windows and Domes Using Scanning Low-Coherence Dual-Wavelength Interferometry

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Damon Diehl, Optical Scientist
Award Amount: $732,311.00
Abstract:
As technology advances, there is increasing demand for higher quality optics with fewer aberrations. Aspheric optics meet these needs, but at present commercial systems to test such lenses are limited. This keeps the costs high and stifles the market. During Phase I of this project, ASE Optics has… More

Reducing missile dome cost using Segmented-APerture Hybrid Image Reconstruction (SAPHIR)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Damon Diehl, Optical Scientist
Award Amount: $69,559.00
Abstract:
The missile dome represents an enormous percentage of a modern missile's expense. This project seeks to develop image correction methods to relax the optical tolerances for missile domes, thus significantly reducing their cost. ASE Optics has extensive experience in digital image processing, optical… More

Multi-Object Spectrometer for Space Object Identification

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Christopher Cotton, President
Award Amount: $98,779.00
Abstract:
Approximately 19,000 resident space objects (RSOs) larger than 10 cm are known to be orbiting Earth.[1] These objects range from active payloads, such as satellites, to "space junk."[2] Currently these objects are tracked using Ground-Based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance (GEODSS). There is… More
