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. Manufacturing Research and Development of 2D Electrostrictive Ultrasonic Arrays

    SBC: ACOUSTX CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Proposed is the development of manufacturing processes for electrostrictive arrays allowing for real-time ultrasound volumetric imaging. To date, the commercial development of 2D transducer arrays having thousands of array elements has been significantly limited due to manufacturing inefficiencies, transducer element sensitivity; the complexity associated with ...

  2. Identifying Cytoprotectants for Photoreceptors and RPE Cells to Treat Dry AMD

    SBC: ACUCELA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the major cause of irreversible loss of vision in the adult population. AMD can be classified into the "dry" form and the "wet" form. The dry form involves apoptotic changes in the photoreceptor cells or the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells underlying the central retina (macula). The dry form can progress to the w ...

  3. In Vitro Assay to Assess Chemical Toxicity in Retinal Primary Cell Cultures

    SBC: ACUCELA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The average person in the U.S. contains detectable levels of more than 100 industrial compounds, pollutants, and chemicals, but predicting the relative risk of this exposure, especially over time, is challenging (US CDC, 2003). Successful development and commercialization of next-generation, low-cost, high-performance technology for predicting compound toxicity ...

  5. Autonomous, Real-time, 3D Change Detection System

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A07211

    Aculight Corporation, together with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC), proposes a novel system approach that uses a mature 3D imaging laser radar (LADAR) design and leverages existing 3D image processing algorithms to meet the needs for an autonomous, real-time, 3D change detection system. The LADAR imaging system usies a compact, eye-safe, high-peak power, short pulse fiber laser ...

  6. Photonic Crystal Development for High Power Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A07191

    The Phase I effort will show the feasibility of reaching 10+kW average power in Yb-doped, photonic waveguide amplifiers emitting near-diffraction-limited output beams. We will show that this innovative technology permits us to avoid nonlinearities and thermo-optical fracture, while producing near diffraction-limited output in the multi-kilowatt regime. By the conclusion of the Phase I effort, we ...

  7. Modulated Pulsed Laser Sources for Imaging Lidars

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N07036

    A pulsed fiber laser capable of very rapid amplitude modulation is proposed. Producing more than 5 W output at 532 nm, the system incorporates a very fast fiber-coupled electro-optic modulator, capable of reproducing waveforms up to the 10 GHz range. When used in a hybrid lidar-radar system, the laser will enable discrimination against multiply scattered photons, powerfully enabling imaging of t ...

  8. Standoff Explosives Detection

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: A07117

    Aculight Corporation and ITT have teamed to develop a brassboard Raman sensor technology providing a clear path to a fully integrated sensor capable of detecting trace amounts of explosives at 30+ meters. Because of the maturity of the Aculight pulsed fiber laser technology and the ITT family of Raman sensors, the time to deployment of the proposed standoff sensor desired by the Army is minimal.

  9. 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.

  10. 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. ...
