Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S2.04
Budget: 04/25/16 - 04/24/18

Monolithic freeform telescopes offer the potential to positively address the size, weight and vibration concerns associated with flight telescope systems. We propose to prove feasibility that our optics manufacturing process is capable of producing of a freeform optical telescope system by manufacturing and testing five optical surfaces on five ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of North Carolina Charlotte

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: MDA13-T009
Budget: 03/16/16 - 03/15/18

It is proposed that using additive manufacturing to fabricate a lightweight optic would result in a weight reduction of the optical system, since 3D-printing provides superior flexibility in the geometric design of the lightweight optic. In addition, the conventional approach to lightweight an optic requires machining of mechanically-hard optic...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N152-107
Budget: 10/29/15 - 04/27/16

Freeform conformal windows, which match an airframe?s shape, are used to protect sensor arrays. These windows provide the advantages of traditional sensor windows, namely, durability, in combination with superior aerodynamic performance. The goal of this Phase I SBIR project is to demonstrate the capability to produce a large (12? x 12?), non-ro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N152-106
Budget: 10/29/15 - 04/27/16

Aspheric and conformal optics have become critical components in the aerodynamic features of missiles and aircraft systems. The smooth and sleek shape of the optics improves the aerodynamic quality and performance. These shapes are difficult to manufacture and measure due to the significant amount of inherent optical aberrations. However, produc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S2.03
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Our proposed innovation is additive manufacturing for the production of lightweight mirror substrates for flight applications with high mechanical stability. The steps of our proposed process for manufacturing lightweight 3D printed mirrors: first, a geometrically complex substrate is easily and cost-effectively manufactured using 3D printing. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: S2.04
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Monolithic freeform telescopes offer the potential to positively address the size, weight and vibration concerns associated with flight telescope systems. We propose to prove feasibility that our optics manufacturing process is capable of producing of a freeform optical telescope system by manufacturing and testing four optical surfaces on four ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S2.04
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

The goal of this NASA SBIR Phase I study is to determine the feasibility of measuring precision (fractional wave) freeform optics using non-contact areal (imaging) optical sensors measuring slope data. Fabrication of a physical "test plate" for each freeform design is impractical and cost prohibitive. Nevertheless, surfaces must be inspected wh...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-124
Budget: 06/15/15 - 06/15/17

Optical fabrication challenges exist before an IR conformal optical sensor system can be realized. These challenges will be addressed in the current Phase II proposal. For example, in current work, the deterministic polishing process will be extended to meet requisite optical specifications (i.e. figure, finish) for IR transparent freeform corre...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-122
Budget: 06/10/15 - 08/09/17

In this proposal we will build on previously developed technologies to build and test an infrared conformal window sensor system. Previously we have demonstrated the ability to manufacture the components needed for this system. In this work, we will use that ability to manufacture a conformal window using stitching interferometry (with subcontra...
