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. High-power transportable fs fiber laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF06005

    We propose the development of a multi-function, high-peak-power all-fiber-based laser source capable of operation in a wide range of pulse formats and designed for deployment in harsh environments.

  2. Wavelength Conversion of Pulsed Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: SB052027

    First generation mid-infrared lasers contribute to the prohibitively high life cycle cost of infrared countermeasures systems, precluding their broad application in helicopters. We propose to develop a fiber amplifier-based IRCM laser transmitter that will contain all optical beams within optical fiber, eliminating adjustable, discrete optical mounts to significantly increase the laser’s MTBF. ...

  3. Eyesafe Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Laser for Laser Ranging

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: MDA05013

    We propose the development of a high-peak-power pulse fiber laser operating at eye-safe wavelength to be used as transmitter in laser radar (LIDAR) applications. The laser will support long range and high range resolution and will be designed for fast transition to actual field deployment.

  4. Fiber Laser Beam Combining for High Efficiency and Light-Weight HEL Systems

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A06208

    High Energy Lasers (HELs) are required for a variety of military directed energy applications including area protection against rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM). A typical laser enabling these applications should provide at least 10 to 100 kW of output power with excellent beam quality. Moreover, to provide maximum benefit on the modern battlefield, the HEL system should be portable, feature ...

  5. 1 kW Fiber Lasers and Alignment Free SBC

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: MDA04005

    Spectral Beam Combination (SBC) has been proven as a scalable beam combining approach for high power fiber lasers. Demonstrations at Aculight have shown 522 Watts of near diffraction limited power from three combined fiber laser sources; and the dispersive element, a Multi-Layer-Dielectric (MLD) diffraction grating, will operate well above 1.5 kWatts/cm2 of incident power allowing ~100 kWatt sour ...

  6. High Energy Laser (HEL) Beam Combination

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: OSD05D04

    Electrically driven High Energy Lasers (HELs) can perform target detection and illumination, missile defense, aircraft and area self-protection, and missions requiring precision engagement and/or graduated force/lethality. These lasers must provide at least 10 to 100 kW of output power with excellent beam quality, and have high electro-optical efficiency and output power to weight ratio, and have ...

  7. 100 Watt Laser Synchronous Photoinjection

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: 48

    Electron accelerators are used to expand our knowledge of nuclear physics and basic materials science; for high performance synchrotron radiation sources used in physics, chemistry, and semiconductor development; and in specialized radiation sources at the forefront of medicine. To achieve the best performance, specialized lasers are used to produce electrons for these accelerators. These lasers ...

  8. High resolution mapping of the cochlear nerve using optical stimulation

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neural prosthetic devices are artificial extensions to the body that restore or supplement nervous system function that was lost during disease or injury. Particular success has been realized in the cochlear prostheses development. In contemporary cochlear implants, however, the injected electric current is spread widely along the scala tympani and across turns ...

  9. Extending the Infosphere to Mobile Platforms Using Optimized COTS Technologies

    SBC: AGILEDELTA            Topic: AF03094

    As the DoD shifts toward Network-Centric operations, the vision of sharing common information objects between command centers, aircraft, ships and ground forces over a global network seems closer than ever. One of the fundamental challenges of achieving this vision is bridging the gap between net-centric systems that share information using XML and tactical systems that require more efficient data ...

  10. Flexible Transpiration Cooled Thermal Protection System for Inflatable Atmospheric Capture and Entry Systems

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: X704

    Andrews Space, Inc. proposes an innovative transpiration cooled aerobrake TPS design that is thermally protective, structurally flexible, and lightweight. This innovative design will meet launch volume constraints and satisfy terminal aerobraking requirements. The approach will focus on transpiration cooling of a flexible material and employs preceramic polymers and active filler technologies as ...
