  1. Real Axis SLM for Scintillation Control

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a high frame-rate, large-area, amplitude-only SLM for use in atmospheric correction. The Phase I will demonstrate the concept through the fabrication/evaluation of amplitude-only modulators, as well as an addressing structure that is economical for large-areas. Phase II will scale the addressing structure to 128X128 or higher density, for fabrication of large area amplitude ...

  2. ONBOARD LIDAR WIND SHEAR VORTEX WAKE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A forward and lateral looking scanning Doppler lidar is proposed for use onboard aircraft to sense and display windshear in the vicinity of the planned flight path, particularly windshear due to the vortex wakes of preceding large aircraft. The goal is to provide the pilot with an assessment, visual display, and warning of the windshear in the vicinity of the projected flight path, with ...

  3. Agile Waveform Solid-State Coherent LADAR Array Imager

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel, adaptive waveform coherent LADAR concept is proposed to provide a robust sensor capability to meet Air Force objectives. The LADAR operates at an eyesafe solid-state wavelength in order to achieve a compact, rugged design capable of stand-off ranges of 20 km or more. Simultaneous precision range, Doppler and micro-Doppler target signatures are extracted with an extremely efficient proc ...

  4. Frequency Agile High Average Power COIL

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nonlinear optical frequency converters for lasers are impacting a variety of systems including weapons fire control, active beacon adaptive optics, target designation, range finding, and active multispectral imaging ladar. Most next-generation systems require frequency agile transmitters with improved power scaling. For example, there are currently few high average power (1 to 20 kW) frequency c ...

  5. Distributed Aperture, Multifunction Laser Radar System

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An emerging, powerful trend in electro-optics systems development is the "multifunction sensor. It addresses the need to reduce the volume, prime power requirements, and cost of sensor suites. Further functionality and cost reduction are achieved by distributing the multifunction sensor signals over an optical bus to spatially-separated optical apertures and time multiplexing a centrally located ...

  6. High Efficiency 0.5J, 20Hz Two Micron Laser

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Coherent Technologies Inc. (CTI) proposes to design a 0.5J, 20Hz, single frequency Q-switched two micron laser, with high wall plug efficiency. With passive cooling, the unit will operate with a wall-plug power efficiency of 5-6%, meeting the performance requirements for practical deployment of a Doppler lidar on a free-flying satellite for space-based remote sensing. When used in a coherent las ...

  7. MULTIAPERTURE TRACKING AND DESIGNATION SYSTME

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Distributed aperture ladar systems with centralized transmitters and receivers promise increased functionality with reduced cost, weight and volume. Such multiaperture architectures are anticipated to provide 4(pi) steradian coverage with unprecedented capabilities on airborne platforms. However, two primary technical hurdles prevent realization of a first-generation system. One is finding an a ...

  8. Compact High Power Laser

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A missing key component in current laser systems for target tracking/identification and optical remote sensors is a compact, high repetition rate, moderate average power (10W) laser operating at eyesafe wavelengths. To meet this need, a diode-pumped solid state laser is proposed which utilizes an exceptionally small and robust package scheme for high efficiency systems. The design capitalizes on ...

  9. Frequency Agile Chemical and Biological Hazard Transceiver

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Coherent Technologies, Inc. (CTI) proposes a simple, compact and efficient man-portable laser source for remote detection of chemical and biological hazards. The source consists of a low-risk Nd:YAG drive laser pumping a frequency-agile optical parametric oscillator (OPO). The transmitter will simultaneously output eyesafe radiation at 1.56 um and at other wavelengths over the entire 1.75 to 14 ...

  10. PLIN-A Programmable Laboratory Incubator

    SBC: DELLA ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Della Enterprises, Inc. will develop a programmable laboratory incubator or PLIN which is capable of autonomously carrying out complex in-vitro cell culture studies. This incubator design supports the following innovations: 1) vastly increased capabilities for tissue plate storage due to a compact method of storage and retrieval, 2) automated access to multiple stock solutions and dosing sources ...
