Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-054
Budget: 06/25/10 - 06/24/12

Within harsh environment areas, Naval vessels require illumination. Incandescent based Symbol 48.2 explosion-proof fixtures are rated to operate in these spaces but are inefficient, resulting in unsafe fixture surface temperatures and unnecessarily high energy consumption. Under such extreme operating conditions, the lamps in the fixtures fail...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-055
Budget: 06/15/10 - 06/14/12

A significant amount of personal injury and property damage as well as lost productivity could be avoided by speeding up the body s adjustment cycle to new circadian schedules or re-synchronizing body schedules that have slipped or advanced. For the military, this problem is especially acute because the warfighters duties include dangerous equ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-004
Budget: 09/22/09 - 03/22/10

The use of night vision equipment on the battlefield is a well documented success, and under some conditions an infrared flare may enhance this advantage. Currently, US armed services use the M-278 Infrared flare rocket to this end. The objective of this effort is the development of a replacement for the M-278 Infrared Flare using LED technolog...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-054
Budget: 03/05/09 - 10/15/09

The project will develop a solid-state alternative to the inefficient, excessively hot and maintenance-intensive incandescent explosion-proof lighting fixtures used by the Navy. Solid-State Lighting using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) is now technically feasible but several difficult challenges remain to be overcome in order to deploy them in ce...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-055
Budget: 02/12/09 - 10/13/09

Energy Focus has envisioned a Generation 2 berth light LED system that incorporates an illumination spectrum consistent with the latest research in spectrally tuned adjustment and resetting of circadian rhythms. Research shows that the human eye contains specialized receptors for 420nm-560nm light which signal the body to suppress melatonin prod...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-003
Budget: 06/07/07 - 06/15/10

The technical problem being addressed in this work is the material selection and development of fabrication processes that will yield a scalable large core plastic optical fiber product that meets the specific flame, smoke, fume and toxicity requirements for use on board US Navy ships. Use of the fire retardant fibers coupled with efficient f...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-004
Budget: 06/06/07 - 10/15/09

We will determine how to effectively apply an organometallic external barrier coating to arc tubes to prevent or delay their failure by devitrification. The most important consideration is source life, followed by lumen maintenance, the spectral output and cost. The coating process will be the Microdyne system demonstrated in Phase I. The altern...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-004
Budget: 12/07/05 - 08/31/06

Evaluate feasibility of exterior barrier coatings on remote source HID lamps. Coat lamps with prelimiary designs and measure thermal distributions. Detail likely design space (materials, coating methods, annealing methods) for large-scale success. In Phase II, develop detailed designs, coating process, annealing process and tooling design. Deter...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-003
Budget: 10/21/05 - 06/20/06

A large core optical fiber is desired that is capable of withstanding flame and smoke generation requirements as defined in military specifications for Naval applications and that maintains optical efficiency and mechanical flexibility similar to or better than current Large Core Plastic Optical Fiber (LCPOF) technology. In Phase I, Fiberstars w...
