Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-312
Budget: 08/22/07 - 10/05/09
PI: Dr. Le Li

In this SBIR Phase II Program, two prototypes of multi-spectral laser protection devices will be developed for protecting a group of cameras used in the Air Force Flight Test Center from being damaged/jammed by multi-wavelength high-energy lasers during weapon test & evaluation. The devices also provide with much-needed protection for military s...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Central Florida

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T029
Budget: 09/29/06 - 09/29/08
PI: Dr. Le Li

This STTR Phase II Program focuses on a simple and cost effective solution to an urgent challenge facing to today s U.S. military, i.e., protection of military personnel, sensors, and instruments from laser injury. The program also yields enabling devices for military directed energy (DE) system, multi- and hyper-spectral Ladar/Lidar, mine dete...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-312
Budget: 05/05/06 - 02/05/07
PI: Dr. Le Li

This SBIR Phase I proposal proposes to develop agile multi-spectral laser protection devices against multi-wavelength high-energy lasers based on KOI s exclusive reflective type optical tunable notch filters whose capability for laser beam blocking has been demonstrated. The device has a wide spectral coverage from the visible to infrared (IR) ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Central Florida

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-T020
Budget: 09/30/05 - 03/30/06
PI: Dr. Le Li

This STTR Phase II proposal relates to the development of a Multi-Band IR Scene Projection Display for Scene Simulation in Hardware-In-the-Loop facilities. The focus is to transition Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) displays to the infrared regime and to develop multi-band projection optics. This projection display enables MDA/AF a much enhanc...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Central Florida

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T029
Budget: 08/01/05 - 05/01/06
PI: Dr. Le Li

This STTR Phase I proposal focuses on a liquid crystal material research to improve the performance of new classes of electro-optically active and spectrally responsive cholesteric liquid crystals (CLCs) with tunable selective reflection properties and with variable yet controllable selective reflection bandwidth. The technical objectives are t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-130
Budget: 12/08/04 - 06/08/05
PI: Dr. Le Li

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 consum...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-025
Budget: 08/31/04 - 11/30/06
PI: Dr. Le Li

This SBIR Phase II proposal proposes to develop multi-beam multi-band optical transceivers for the inter-satellite wireless communication network involving one master beacon on Geosynchronous orbit and five flying slave beacons. The transceivers feature 1-2 G/bit data rate, +/- 10o steering field of view (FOV), 1-Rad detection FOV, less than 7...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Central Florida

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-T020
Budget: 08/30/04 - 02/28/05
PI: Dr. Le Li

This STTR Phase I proposal proposes a feasibility of a novel multi-band IR scene display for scene simulation for missile interception simulation in the Hardware-in-the-Loop. This development addresses the DOD need for infrared spatial light modulators (SLM), primarily as an enabling technology for infrared scene projection, but also for dynami...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-079
Budget: 06/01/04 - 12/01/04
PI: Dr. Le Li

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) proposal relates to a novel liquid crystal technology that leads to the birth of first-of-its-kind polarizer-free spectrally agile and spatially addressable reflective infrared (IR) dynamic optical agile filters for military sensor anti-jamming, as well as laser energy control, switching, and redire...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04
PI: Dr. Le Li

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is a feasibility study on electrically tunable lasers made from novel liquid crystal based tunable photonic crystals (TPC). As predicted by a theoretical model and experiment results, the tuning of the laser wavelength is realized via tuning the TPC stop band. When doped with lasin...
