Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-039
Budget: 10/03/11 - 10/02/13

Large diameter optics have numerous challenges, including fabrication, surface figure, weight, transport, mounting, materials choice, and thermal concerns. High Energy Laser applications bring additional challenging parameters to the mix, such as surface micro-roughness, laser damage threshold, coating adhesion, and coating thermal conductivity...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA10-006
Budget: 06/03/11 - 12/05/11

The most promising and scalable high-power laser geometries effectively manage thermal transfer from the laser crystal to the heat sink. While next generation crystals and pump geometries aim to eliminate waste heat in the first place, it will always be the case that efficient removal of heat will be paramount for further power scaling. When p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-039
Budget: 06/07/10 - 12/07/10
PI: Dale Ness

The development outlined in this proposal will lead to an advanced concept modular IBS coating system capable of coating ~1m diameter optics to a high degree of uniformity, while maintaining our industry-leading laser damage threshold performance. In Phase I, coating uniformity in a commercial IBS chamber will be dramatically improved, and appl...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-028
Budget: 01/29/10 - 01/31/12
PI: Dale Ness

Infrared transmitting domes with a tangent ogive shape are more aerodynamic than hemispherical domes, and consequently decrease the drag and temperature while increasing range, speed, and payload. Further, ogive domes have increased durability to such effects as rain impact at high velocity, as well as increased field of regard. For a sensor mou...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Kansas State University

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T021
Budget: 12/04/09 - 12/03/10

An eye-safe optically pumped laser based on a gas-filled hollow optical fiber will be demonstrated to lase at both near infrared (IR) and mid IR wavelengths. These lasers will be the first in a new class of IR lasers, based on the combination of hollow-f

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 09/01/09 - 07/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Accurate counts of helper T cells and related lymphocytes are critical in decisions about HIV status and antiretroviral therapies. Flow cytometry is the standard method of cell counting, but the majority of the 30 to 40 million infected people worldwide are in resource-limited areas and do not have access to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-08-050
Budget: 09/01/09 - 07/31/10

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diagnosis and medical management of HIV-infected individuals is significantly enhanced if one can simultaneously define the subset of the most common co-infections for which patients are at risk. Unfortunately, running such a series of parallel diagnostic tests is cost prohibitive, particularly in low-resourc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-007
Budget: 06/16/09 - 02/08/10

In this Phase I effort, PPC will pursue a translational research and development program for a recently demonstrated technology into the chemical and biological sensing arena. Spectroscopic identification of chem/bio agents requires broadband detection in order to characterize unique spectral fingerprints preferably simultaneously in the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-028
Budget: 03/23/09 - 09/23/09
PI: Dale Ness

The objective of this SBIR topic is to develop methods to apply robust, high operating temperature anti-reflective coatings, over the wavelength range 3 to 5 microns, to the inside of deep concave surfaces, including a tangent ogive infrared dome. In Phase 1 we will develop methods which control the coating thickness across the interior surface ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Kansas State University

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T021
Budget: 07/22/08 - 01/18/09

An eye-safe optically-pumped laser based on a gas-filled hollow optical fiber is proposed. Such a laser will be the first in a new class of lasers, based on gas-filled fibers and incorporating many advantages of optically-pumped gas lasers, including the ability to use multiple incoherent pump sources to result in a single coherent beam. We w...
