  1. Phased Array Liquid Crystal Beamsteerer

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

    This proposal describes a new optical phase-shifter technology incorporating analog ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) materials. This technology will be used to produce a phased-array beamsteerer that can be reconfigured in under 100 microseconds. Due to the analog behavior, the device promises high diffraction efficiency and low sidelobe amplitude. Because FLC materials are used, rapid switchi ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Development of Efficient, Diode-Pumped 3-5 Micron Oscillators for Remote Sensing

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

    Spectrally and spatially coherent, high pulse energy, tunable mid-IR sources remain elusive. Solid-State and semiconductor lasers do not operate over the 1.5 to 5 micron wavelength range, leaving laser-pumped frequency converters, such as Optical Parametric Oscillators (OPOs), as the most viable technology. Achieving high conversion efficiency and continuous tunability in rugged OPOs has present ...

  4. Physics-Based Signature Simulator for Adaptive Waveform Coherent LADAR

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

    A novel, adaptive waveform coherent LADAR concept is proposed to provide a robust Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) sensor with the capability to meet Air Force objectives. The compact, rugged solid-state LADAR operates at eyesafe wavelengths and is capable of stand-off detection ranges to 20 km or more. Simultaneous precision range, Doppler and micro-Doppler target signatures are extracted wit ...

  5. Adaptive 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. High Average Power Frequency Agile 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 ...

  8. Coherent Laser Radar Atmospheric Turbulence Sensor

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

    The proposed Phase I program develops and investigates the feasibility of a novel, single-ended, range-resolved refractive turbulence profiler. This system is based on solid-state coherent laser radar technology and therefore has the potential for characterizing wind turbulence as well. The subject innovation provides real-time turbulence profiles that can benefit missile defense sensors, such a ...

  9. Tunable UV LIDAR for Water Vapor Profiling and Ozone Monitoring

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

    The development of graphite fibers with thermal conductivities along the fiber of greater than 1000 W/m degree K have allowed composites to reach in-plane thermal conductivities (11, k22) of 300 to 660 W/m degree K. These conductivities are two to four times those of the aluminum alloys currently used for spacecraft structure. However, the composites have very low thermal conductivit ...
