Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.09
Budget: 09/29/16 - 09/28/18

AOSense will build and test an integrated ultrastable laser module capable of reaching a short-term instability of < 5e-15 @ 1s. The flexible design will allow the module to be adapted for several relevant optical clock wavelengths which utilize external cavity diode lasers. The first unit will operate at 698 nm to address the Sr clock transition.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: SB161-005
Budget: 07/08/16 - 04/17/17

AOSense proposes to develop an ultra-sensitive atomic magnetic gradiometer for real-world applications. The device will be capable of operating in environments where the ambient magnetic field is unknown and varying both in magnitude and direction. The GAMMA sensor will have a unique combination of gradiometric sensitivity (< 10 fT/Hz^1/2 /cm),...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H9.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

AOSense proposes a free-space, two-way optical time transfer system compatible with global-scale synchronization of current-generation optical atomic clocks. In Phase I, we will demonstrate the requisite performance using existing hardware coupled with off-the-shelf control electronics. Based on our results, we will design a fully-integrated mod...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB015.1-008
Budget: 04/01/16 - 03/30/17

AOSense proposes to develop a cold-atom gravity gradiometer for nonintrusive, passive detection of shielded special nuclear material (SNM) within a human occupied vehicle. Both SNM and SNM shielding consist of high-Z materials that are substantially denser than background. Theoretical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of gravity tomography ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-110
Budget: 06/11/15 - 09/15/17

ABSTRACT:AOSense proposes to develop a compact precision atomic clock (CPAC) exhibiting excellent short-term stability (better than 110-14 at 1 second of averaging) as well very good mid-term stability (110-16 or better on timescales of 1 day), in a compact, reduced SWaP package suitable for future field applications. The overall volume of the C...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.09
Budget: 05/20/15 - 05/19/17

We propose to demonstrate the portable source of lattice-trapped, ultracold strontium (PLUS) designed during Phase I. The device uses simplified and robust techniques for loading the traps, and directly leverages hardware already developed by AOSense. The simplified architecture for PLUS makes it amenable to future space qualification. When pair...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB141-004
Budget: 04/01/15 - 04/01/17

We propose development of a high performance, portable atomic clock using cold atom technology. The clock will have short term stability better than 10^-12 at one second and 5x10^-15 at timescales of one day. The size, weight, and power (SWaP) of the clock will be

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB141-004
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

We propose development of a high performance, portable atomic clock using cold atom technology. The clock will have short term stability better than 10^-12 at one second and 5x10^-15 at timescales of one day. The size, weight, and power (SWaP) of the clock will be &lt;1 L, &lt;1 kg, and &lt;5 W respectively. The clock SWaP and operational con...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-075
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:AOSense proposes to develop a model that calculates the response of a cold-atom IMU subjected to harsh environmental effects including radiation, magnetic fields, and acceleration/rotation. These simulations will predict navigational accuracy of cold-atom sensors in real environments, informing the development of future generations of s...
