Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-238
Budget: 07/29/08 - 11/30/10

The Resonant Microsystems SBIR project aims to develop high-fill-factor micromirror arrays to provide rapid and efficient beam steering for pointing and tracking, imaging, and designation. The proposed Phase II work will develop and optimize the micromirror devices and provide a small-scale demonstration of the arrays needed for typical large ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-238
Budget: 09/26/07 - 06/30/08

The proposed SBIR Phase I projects aims to develop high-fill-factor micromirror arrays to provide efficient and rapid beam steering for pointing and tracking, imaging, and designation as well as for HEL weapons.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-019
Budget: 05/02/07 - 05/02/09

Precise alignment of optical components is currently obtained by an iterative process of wavefront measurement, demounting, shimming, and re-mounting. With the planned introduction of multi-FPA and cryogenic cooling, the alignment process is anticipated to become more difficult and costly. To address this challenge, the team is developing an au...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-042
Budget: 03/10/06 - 09/11/06

Our team is proposing an analog micromirror array for projector applications. Fabrication of the array does not follow the traditional monolithic integration paradigm. Instead, the process is separated into simplified modules. By streamlining the fabrication of the critical components, each part can be optimized without process interactions....

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California Santa Cruz

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will develop a large-stroke spatial light modulator (SLM) for astronomical instrumentation. Key challenges to current astronomical instrument technology are the requirements for large piston stroke and for increased number of actuators. The proposed Phase I project will develop a pis...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-021
Budget: 08/01/05 - 08/16/06

High bandwidth free space communication links are critical for next generation DoD systems, including low-loss phased shifters for a MEMS-based ESA and mirror arrays for turbulence compensation. For the proposed SBIR project, Resonant Microsystems will model and simulate free space links and design a K-band MEMS phase shifter.
