Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-018
Budget: 06/05/15 - 12/14/15

An integrated analog optical transmitter combining a high power, low RIN laser and external modulator will be developed using a fully monolithic chip design or a free space coupled package with a laser and modulator chip. Optical, mechanical, and RF design analysis will be performed in Phase I to identify the optimum solution.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-005
Budget: 05/13/14 - 11/17/14

We propose to develop high-performance 1550 nm semiconductor lasers with linewidth less than 1 kHz, output power greater than 100 mW, RIN below -175 dBc/Hz. We will use InGaAlAs system instead of the InGaAsP system as the laser active layer, and will design the optimum laser structure to reduce the laser threshold current and RIN, and to push th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-013
Budget: 05/08/14 - 11/10/14

A waveguide-coupled, uni-traveling carrier (UTC) photodetector will be used as a single chip balanced optical receiver. The photodetector design is derived from a high saturation current and high dynamic range diode developed for analog RF over fiber applications. We propose a highly linear balanced receiver that is implemented in compound semic...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-123
Budget: 01/05/12 - 07/05/13

Optical code division multiple access networks have been shown to provide significant advantages for avionics multi-processor/multi-core optical networks, providing reduced weight, improved resistance to electromagnetic interference, and significant cost savings. In addition, it provides improved multi-level security over wavelength division mul...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT34
Budget: 06/15/11 - 03/14/12

ABSTRACT: Electrical interconnects implemented with metal wires inside computer chips or between computer chips are becoming the critical performance bottle neck due to limited bandwidth, increased power dissipation and crowded input/output interfaces. Using optics for interconnects solves the bandwidth problem, reduces the overall power dissipa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-123
Budget: 08/19/10 - 02/19/11

APIC and Telcordia Technologies will design an optical code division multiplexing network using integrated optical components for broadband connectivity and multi-level security for processor and avionics networks.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-036
Budget: 08/04/10 - 08/04/12

Dense WDM network architectures for aircraft avionics links will be developed and demonstrated using components incorporating chip-scale photonic integration. Integrated silicon photonics components will be used for the node hardware in these networks, as defined in Phase I. Chip level integration will be utilized to reduce size and power consum...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-036
Budget: 04/30/09 - 09/06/10

APIC Corporation, with Telcordia Technologies, will develop and investigate architectures for reconfigurable add/drop mesh networks for avionics with emphasis on connectivity and restorability after node failures. Compact, integrated photonic and electronic transmitter and receiver components being developed by APIC will be used to the extent po...
