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. Improved Performance, More Producible Long Wave IR Integrated Dewar Assemblies

    SBC: WILLIAM P. KUHN, PH.D., LLC            Topic: MDA08019

    A versatile and portable instrument for stray light detection and diagnosis at both visible and infrared wavelengths will be designed, built, and demonstrated. The core idea of the proposed approach is to use subaperture, rather than full aperture, illumination for stray light detection. The subaperture approach uses a scanning pencil beam (SPB) that provides information about the location of a s ...

  2. Polarization Maintaining Coherent Fiber Bundle Array

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S104

    Future NASA flight missions are considering passive wavefront and amplitude control in astronomical applications such as the search for exo-planets. NASA's Discovery mission proposal called out the need for a coherent 2-dimensional array of fiber bundles for this application. In this SBIR proposal we propose to develop monolithic polarization maintaining (PM) coherent fiber bundle arrays consistin ...

  3. Q-Switched High Power Single Frequency 2 Micron Fiber Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S101

    Accurate measurement of atmospheric parameters with high resolution needs advanced lasers. In this SBIR program we propose to develop innovative Q-switched high power 2.05micron fiber laser with pulse energy greater than 10mJ, repetition rate of 10Hz to 1KHz, and pulse duration of 200ns using our proprietary innovative highly efficient Tm-doped glass fiber. This new fiber laser will be an all-fibe ...

  4. Phase-Stabilized 1-GHz Fiber-Laser Frequency Combs at 2~5um for Coherent Fourier Transform Spectroscopy

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    The GHz-rate phase-stabilized fiber-laser frequency comb system is proposed to be used as a light source for coherent Fourier transform spectroscopy. The system will be developed based on our proprietary glass/fiber technology, which features a low-cost, robust, highly stable, mid-infrared light source that enables the development of a robust portable c-FTIR spectrometer for absorption measurement ...

  5. High Power 2-micron Fiber Laser Components

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093158

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Fiber laser operating in the 1.9-2.1micron wavelength regimes have achieved operating powers approaching 1kW. Such fiber lasers have great potential in the areas of laser radar, remote sensing, medicine, and infrared (IR) countermeasures. However, further development of these technologies is hindered by a lack of commerc ...

  6. Low-Cost Mid-Wavelength Infrared All-Fiber Source

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093212

    An all-fiber mid-infrared laser source offers many unique features that are key to next-generation infrared countermeasure systems. We propose a low-cost all-fiber mid-infrared light source operating in 2-5 micron wavelength range with ~1000watt average output power, based on our proprietary infrared glass/fiber technology. All-fiber monolithic design allows us to develop such a low-cost fiber las ...

  7. Innovative Broadband Infrared Coherent Fiber Image Bundle

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093216

    High spatial resolution infrared imaging fiber bundles are needed to spatially analyze combustion processes accessible only by probe penetrations into high pressure and/or high temperature regions such as turbine combustors and afterburners. Specialized infrared fibers including chalcogenide and ZBLAN fibers are typically very expensive and brittle and fragile. We propose to develop an innovative ...

  8. Isolator for Fiber Laser Amplifier Arrays

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093008

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Several kW of output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. While high power fiber lasers have been successfully deployed in industry, one piece of critical components, fiber isolator, is still not available. F ...

  9. Innovative Eye-Safe Wavelength High Power Fiber Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: A10028

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in the last several years. Ten kW of diffraction-limited output power at 1 micron from one single mode fiber has been demonstrated. Department of Defense (DoD) needs 100s of kW for missile defense as well as for protection against rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM). There is serious concern about current 1 micron fiber laser system potentia ...

  10. Scaffolding for Math Games

    SBC: Virtual Learning Technologies (Sokikom)            Topic: N/A

    In 2009, Virtual Learning Technologies received an award to develop Frachine, a web-based single player fraction learning game for elementary school students. This project will develop an intelligent tutoring system that will integrate with the existing game to provide the individualized instructional support required to further improve student math outcomes.  Phase I will develop a prototype ...
