Research Institution
In Phase II Optonicus proposes the experimental demonstration of fully integrated high-power FLAP beam director prototype with multiple subapertures. The FLAP beam director will based on new prototype subsystems including: (1) compact lightweight multi-kW-class fiber-collimator module (INFICO) with integrated electronic laser beam pointing capabilities, (2) a multi-kW-class lens-positioner module for electronic beam pointing and active compensation of heat- and mechanical-jitter-induced large-amplitude misalignments of fiber-array optical elements, and (3) an advanced power handling and cooling module based on combination of flexible thermal ground and micro-channel water-cooling plates. Approved for Public Release 15-MDA-8169 (20 March 15)
