Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-208
Budget: 11/28/05 - 05/28/06

The application of conventional artillery in urban battlefield environments is limited because of time critical mobile targets, complex cluttered scenes, and obscured or camouflaged enemy elements mixed within a civilian population. Smart Artillery will increase accuracy against enemy targets, reduce collateral damage, and improve survivability ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-081
Budget: 06/22/05 - 12/22/05

The Navy is advancing its underwater surveillance capabilities by developing leave-behind communications and sonar devices. Current power supply designs contain batteries that are very harmful to the environment. Schafer proposes a hybrid power supply that incorporates three major components: a NiMH battery that acts as the energy and power so...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-272
Budget: 06/06/05 - 02/06/06

The Air Force is looking at ways to reduce the cost of delivering fuel to field deployed diesel powered generators. Although these units have provided reliable power for many years, the cost of re-supplying diesel fuel to the battlefield can be as much as $400 a gallon, when re-supplied by airlift, or $11,000 a day. Additionally diesel generat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-035
Budget: 06/02/05 - 06/02/07

MDA and Air Force are interested in advanced infrared optical windows for high-energy laser (HEL) systems. Laser windows always absorb some energy of the incident and transmitted beam. A non-uniform intensity beam profile causes non-uniform thermal gradients in the window, producing optical distortions and mechanical stresses in the window. T...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-197
Budget: 04/01/05 - 01/01/06

The Air Force is looking for an integrated power management system that can harvest/manage energy from several different energy sources, provide power to the myriad of devices that the soldier must carry, each with varying voltage and current requirements, and provide information back to the soldier with regard to the usage rate, estimate time o...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-008
Budget: 03/10/05 - 09/01/08

The Air Force is interested in high stiffness, lightweight technologies for beam control of tactical airborne and relay mirror high-energy laser systems. The corrected system wavefront error can be minimized using low figure error/surface finish, low print-through, high-stiffness, Silicon Lightweight Mirror Systems (SLMS ) technology with high-...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-112
Budget: 03/04/05 - 09/04/05

Schafer shall produce mirrors (with and without a RadHard coating) and materials test coupons to deliver to the Government, and subsequently to Raytheon (Tucson) for verification and qualification of fundamental structural properties, radiation effects testing, and optical quality and performance measurements for Exo-atmospheric Kill Vehicle Sen...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-176
Budget: 03/04/05 - 09/04/05

The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command is responsible for the Advanced Discriminating LADAR Technology Program to develop LADAR seeker technology to augment sensors of Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle seekers. The dual mode LADAR has a high power transmit beam that uses the same primary optical path as the receive beam. The transmit beam is...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-107
Budget: 02/14/05 - 11/14/05

MDA and Air Force are interested in advanced infrared optical windows for high-energy laser systems. The conformal window of ABL uses low OH- content reformed Infrasil 302 (fused quartz). This 2.2 cm thick, 1.71 m diameter, highly curved (ROC=1.31 m) widow is transparent across the visible and IR Bands. It is the leading edge of the ABL aircr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-2
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

The NASA Space Science Enterprise has 2 themes requiring large, lightweight cryogenic mirrors: Astronomical Search for Origins and Planetary Systems (ASO) and the Beyond Einstein Initiative of the Structure and Evolution of the Universe (SEU). The long wavelength Far Infrared/Submillimeter (FIR/SMM) instruments of Space Technology 9, the SAFIR ...
