Abstract
This SBIR proposal introduces a stationary agile multi-Gb/s full field-of-regards (FOR) multi-beam multi-aperture optical beam steering modular (BSM) for military multimission hardware. With a near 4p field of regards (FOR), the BSM independently steers "N ? M" laser beams. It features compactness, fast slew rate, lightweight, low power consumption, and accurate beam pointing. The core component is a fast beam steering element featuring microsecond steering speed. When equipped with tunable lasers, the wavelength of each steered laser beam can be changed. The BSM can be readily integrated into current or future targeting, countermeasure, communication and tracking systems. It is expected that at the end of the Phase II program, the technical readiness level will reach 6. In Phase I, detailed design considerations will be given to the proposed BSM with emphasis on its future integration with the mentioned military systems. Performance aspects such as field of view, steered laser beam size, beam width, steering speed, beam number, laser power, and spectral tuning will be determined. The Phase I Option will start to develop the components for the BSM. In Phase II, prototype BSM will be developed and tested followed by Phase III commercialization for military as well as commercial applications.
