Eyesafe Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Laser for Laser Ranging

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-013
Budget: 07/03/07 - 07/02/09
PI: Dr. Fabio Di Teodoro

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.

Modulated Pulsed Laser Sources for Imaging Lidars

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-036
Budget: 04/13/07 - 08/20/08
PI: Dr. Roy Mead

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 multipl...

Fiber-based, high peak power mid-infrared source

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-005
Budget: 04/04/07 - 04/30/08
PI: Dr. Fabio Di Teodoro

We propose the development of a transportable, highly flexible, fiber-based high-peak-power optical source capable of operating at mid-infrared wavelengths.

1 kW Fiber Lasers and Alignment Free SBC

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: MDA04-005
Budget: 03/02/07 - 09/30/08
PI: Dr. Thomas H. Loftus

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 ...

High-power transportable fs fiber laser

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-005
Budget: 02/09/07 - 11/10/08
PI: Dr. Fabio Di Teodoro

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.

Wavelength Conversion of Pulsed Fiber Lasers

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-027
Budget: 02/08/07 - 04/30/09
PI: Dr. Fabio Di Teodoro

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 ...

High Energy Laser (HEL) Beam Combination

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-D04
Budget: 01/23/07 - 01/23/09
PI: Dr. Thomas H. Loftus

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 ...

Optimizing remote capture of biometrics for screening processes

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07
PI: Dr. Mark S. Bowers

Aculight, teamed with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC), will deliver a system for remote capture of biometrics for screening processes in the Phase II of this proposed work. This system will have a range in excess of 100 meters, if needed, and supply facial depth resolution of
