The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Terahertz Source and Spectrometer

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF073012

    We propose to develop a fiber-based, high power, narrow linewidth, and tunable THz source to implement a novel THz spectroscopy system by leveraging our proprietary fiber laser technology. This proposed high power fiber-based THz source will be generated by using a nonlinear crystal based on difference-frequency generation (DFG) pumped by high power pulsed fiber lasers in MOPA with high repetition ...

  2. Tunable Single Frequency Fiber Laser for Fiber Optic Sensor Systems

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N08046

    In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, low phase noise, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser by developing an innovative Er/Yb-co-doped polarization maintaining (PM) single mode fiber. Such a fiber laser is needed for advanced fiber optical towed array sonar systems. In Phase I, we will design and fabricate this new fiber, demonstrate fixed wavelength low ...

  3. High Efficiency Fiber Laser for Advanced Accelerator

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 49a

    The Department of Energy has identified a need for a single-polarization, mode-locked, high-power, 2-micron fiber laser for an advanced laser electron accelerator. The 2-micron laser wavelength would allow for both larger accelerator dimensions and the acceleration of more charge, compared to the 0.8 micron Ti:Sapphire laser. Another advantage of the 2-micron wavelength is the possibility of using ...

  4. High-Power 2 Micron Fiber Lasers

    SBC: ADVALUE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF071137

    Thulium doped fiber laser near 2 micron is of great interest because of the potential possibility of combining high efficiency, high output power, and retina safety together. This proposal is for the development of new Tm-doped glass fiber for efficient high power 2ƒnmicron fiber laser capable of generating an output power of up to thousands watts. The doping concentration of the proposed glass f ...

  5. Automated Modeling and Simulation Tool for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: VizTek, Inc            Topic: N08T019

    Today’s Warfighter often carries an inordinate load that can lead to injuries and encumbered performance. Equipment is distributed among squad members with little, if any regard for differences in strength and anthropometry. Consequently, the current focus on human-centric design requires a modeling and simulation tool that can reduce the load Warfighters carry and can help distribute equipmen ...

  6. Handheld Real Time (RT) Climatic/Environmental Sensor

    SBC: VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF073110

    This proposal will provide immediate decision support data, enabling appropriate and cost effective responses (shut down vs. continue) for training exercises/facilities. Specifically, the DoD requires the ability to “train as we fight and fight as we train”, however training is severely limited by visible emissions compliance in the current regulatory environment. Regulated facilities will hav ...

  7. Optical Communications for ASW and MIW Applications

    SBC: AMBALUX CORP.            Topic: N07T017

    The proposed Phase II STTR program will implement forward-error correction and other processing, as well as coherent transceiver operation, in order to improve the performance of underwater communications systems. Significant reduction in the bit-error rate will be demonstrated under both shot-noise and ambient-noise limited conditions.

  8. Edge-pumped Composites for Ultra-Short Pulse (USP) Lasers

    SBC: APPLIED ENERGETICS            Topic: A08047

    Current efforts utilizing solid state Ultra-Short Pulse (USP) Lasers have identified edge pumped lasers as a technology with the potential to greatly increase the performance of candidate systems. This proposal provides “leap ahead” concepts for gain media materials, processing, geometry, and/or finishing, pushing the leading edge of conventional gain media beyond the current capability. The ...

  9. Mobile Aircrew Crashworthy Seating Systems for Helicopters

    SBC: ArmorWorks, Inc.            Topic: AF081005

    This Phase I program would examine the feasibility of developing an innovative mobile aircrew crashworthy seating prototype that allows the cabin crewmembers the freedom to perform the majority of their airborne tasks but also allows for easy and rapid repositioning or stowing of the seat to accommodate cargo/troop ingress/egress, hoist operations, etc. The seating system will provide adequate cre ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Use of Dynamic Electric Field Gradients for the Crystallization of Proteins

    SBC: BioCrystals, LLC            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is for the development of technology to crystallize proteins using less sample and with higher speed and success than current high throughput protein crystallization methods. Protein crystallization is an intermediate step in determining the precise three-dimensional shape of a protein, and proteins are involved in virtually every cellular pr ...
