  2. GPU-Accelerated Sparse Matrix Solvers for Large-Scale Simulations

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S601

    Many large-scale numerical simulations can be broken down into common mathematical routines. While the applications may differ, the need to perform functions such as matrix solves, Fourier transforms, or eigenvalue analysis routinely arise. Consequently, targeting fast, efficient implementations of these methods will benefit a large number of applications. Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are e ...

  3. Public Rights-of-Way Assessment Instrumentation to Determine Accessibility

    SBC: BENEFICIAL DESIGNS INC            Topic: 081FH2

      City planners and engineers need detailed assessments of public rights-of-way to evaluate existing conditions, determine compliance with draft accessibility guidelines, and plan reconstruction projects.  Current assessment methods are inadequate and inefficient due to the time and resources required.  This project will develop an automated public rights-of-way assessment process a ...

  4. A High Reliability Frequency Stabilized Semiconductor Laser Source

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: S101

    Ultrastable, narrow linewidth, high reliability MOPA sources are needed for high performance LIDARs in NASA for, wind speed measurement, surface topography and earth and planetary atmosphere composition measurements. Princeton Optronics is developing a MOPA laser source for these applications. Phase I experiments concluded that the optimum approach will use a DPSS microchip laser with the SOA. Th ...

  5. A High Reliability Frequency Stabilized Semiconductor Laser Source

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: S101

    NASA needs high stability laser source of 1W output power for Lidar applications. Princeton Optronics has developed ultra-stable, narrow linewidth diode pumped solid state lasers using stable packaging and high performance locker. We have also developed high power Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) semiconductor laser sources. We propose to develop a high reliability master oscillator ...

  6. Miniature, Rugged, Pulsed Laser Source for LIDAR Application

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: S101

    Princeton Optronics proposes to develop a high energy pulsed laser source based on a novel approach. The approach consists of a technique to combine a large number of diode pumped solid state lasers. The resulting laser can be packaged in a very small package. We will develop the laser and package it into a laser welded package which can be space qualified. We can achieve 50mJ or higher level of e ...
