  1. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    Amount: $749,979.00

    Adaptive optics (AO) can compensate for the aberrating effects of atmospheric turbulence which degrade the performance of high energy laser (HEL) weapon systems and, as such, is an enabling technology ...

    STTRPhase II2020Department of Defense Air Force
  2. Forecasting, Measuring, and Compensating Optical Turbulence for Air Force Applications

    Amount: $49,972.00

    Guidestar Optical Systems develops optical turbulence forecasting, measuring, and compensation technologies to support commercial laser communications systems. Numerous Air Force applications, includi ...

  7. Fine Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance for Phased Array High Energy Lasers

    Amount: $99,953.43

    High Energy Laser (HEL) systems provide many benefits on the battlefield, such as speed of light engagement, precision engagement with limited collateral damage, graduated response (lethal and non-let ...

    SBIRPhase I2019Department of Defense Army
  8. Adaptive Optics System for a High Energy Laser Weapon System

    Amount: $107,903.31

    As adversarial threats are developing longer range capability, HEL systems must counter these developments by achieving lethal effects at longer ranges. Adaptive Optics (AO) is a key technology that e ...
