214 Awards Won

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-159
Budget: 10/05/05 - 12/30/07

There is a need for an Obstacle Avoidance System (OAS) for small unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) to detect fixed obstacles (e.g., trees, buildings, and wires) and proximity to manned aircraft or other UAVs. Small UAVs impose many different constraints, such as flying close to the ground and limited size, weight and power (SWAP) for system componen...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-049
Budget: 09/27/05 - 09/26/06

CTI's experience with high energy, mil-spec laser systems makes us keenly aware that the environmental controls for such lasers can be larger, heavier, and more power-hungry than the lasers themselves. The next generation of airborne lasers must address this situation head-on in order for dramatic advances in laser technology to achieve widespre...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-005
Budget: 06/02/05 - 06/02/07

High average power lasers are necessary for space-based missions such as long-range sensing and directed energy weapons. Such long-range sensors typically require kW-class power with low intensity noise, diffraction limited beam quality, and high efficiency. In order to meet these and other requirements, CTI is pursuing an innovative laser tec...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-004
Budget: 04/12/05 - 04/12/06

CTI proposes to develop a ground-based coherent laser radar for satellite vibration measurements. This system will be designed to make measurements of surface vibrations of satellites in orbits of up to 1000 km altitude. The vibration measurements will yield velocity power spectral densities up to 1 kHz. The proposed system will also be designed...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-001
Budget: 03/18/05 - 06/17/07

Frequency-agile lasers with ultra-narrow linewidth are required for several coherent laser applications, including correction for Doppler frequency shifts between satellite platforms in low earth orbit. Coherent Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a compact near-monolithic laser operating at 1.064 microns, tunable over its full range of 60GH...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-223
Budget: 03/18/05 - 12/18/05

State-of-the-art wide temporal bandwidth laser radar detectors require high-speed, wide bandwidth, low noise Read Out Integrated Circuits (ROICs) to take advantage of the 1+ GHz bandwidth detectors and exploit a richer set of target signatures at increased spatial resolution. Today's CMOS semiconductor based ROICs do not support the noise/bandwi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-222
Budget: 03/18/05 - 12/18/05

Future military aircraft will rely heavily on active laser systems to perform functions such as reconnaissance imaging, target designation, communications and directed energy. However, there is significant difficulty in overcoming the effects of atmospheric turbulence and platform vibrations. Accommodating the large aperture sizes required for ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-177
Budget: 03/09/05 - 09/09/05

Single frequency lasers with rapid tuning ability and subsequent active phase noise suppression for sub-1kHz linewidths are key components for coherent laser applications requiring long coherence length local oscillators and Doppler frequency shift compensation. Such applications include airborne and space-borne long-range micro-Doppler imaging...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM04-007
Budget: 02/24/05 - 08/24/05

USSOCOM requires a real-time wind-profiling sensor to support precision air delivery of PSYOP leaflets and other cargo from the WSADS Leaflet Delivery System (LDS) UAV without exposing personnel to combat loss. The WSADS-LDS platform limits sensor volume to one cubic foot and weight to 30 pounds. Coherent Technologies, Inc (CTI) proposes to de...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-145
Budget: 02/18/05 - 08/17/05

As active ladar systems become more and more common in missile defense roles, the need for accurate missile signature models increases. Laser radars are currently being pursued for tracking of boosting missiles due to the obvious benefits of clutter rejection and increased precision over passive systems. However, the interaction of laser light...
