Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-050
Budget: 06/09/08 - 12/15/08

Tactical laser sources delivering high-peak-power (from multi-MW to TW) in agile optical pulse trains at high pulse repetition frequency (PRF) in the eye-safe wavelength region are of interest for several military applications including proactive infrared countermeasures (PIRCM), non-lethal munitions, and remote sensing of battlefield threats. ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: MDA04-005
Budget: 05/13/08 - 05/13/09

SBC of high-power fiber lasers uniquely links an efficient, versatile, and robust power scaling architecture to individual emitters with outstanding efficiency, diffraction-limited beam quality, and distributed thermal loading. Fiber SBC, thus provides an exceptionally promising pathway to scalable, high efficiency laser systems with high averag...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-005
Budget: 04/18/08 - 01/29/10

Tactical laser sources delivering high peak power (from multi-MW to TW) in agile optical pulse trains at high pulse repetition frequency (PRF) in the 3.5-4 µm wavelength region are of interest for several military applications including proactive infrared countermeasures (PIRCM), non-lethal munitions, and remote sensing of battlefield threats. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Electron accelerators allow researchers to advance energy and luminosity frontiers and expand our knowledge of nuclear physics and basic materials science. To achieve the best performance, specialized lasers are used to produce electrons for these accelerators. The lasers not only must be precise and reliable but also much more powerful than tho...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

We propose new concepts for developing components for high performance space based Lidar systems. While it is generally recognized that photonic crystal fiber technology can extend the performance range of fiber laser based sources these fibers are considered by many to be incompatible with complementary component technology such as fused coupl...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-117
Budget: 12/20/07 - 06/20/08

Aculight Corporation and ITT have teamed to develop a brassboard Raman sensor technology providing a clear path to a fully integrated sensor capable of detecting trace amounts of explosives at 30+ meters. Because of the maturity of the Aculight pulsed fiber laser technology and the ITT family of Raman sensors, the time to deployment of the prop...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-096
Budget: 12/20/07 - 11/01/09

In response to the SPAWAR solicitation for a blue/green laser for underwater communications Aculight propose the development of a hybrid laser system comprising a low-power semiconductor seed source generating the desired pulse duration and repetition frequency, followed by a multistage Yb-doped fiber amplifier to generate the peak and average p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-211
Budget: 11/28/07 - 05/28/08

Aculight Corporation, together with Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC), proposes a novel system approach that uses a mature 3D imaging laser radar (LADAR) design and leverages existing 3D image processing algorithms to meet the needs for an autonomous, real-time, 3D change detection system. The LADAR imaging system usies a compact...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-191
Budget: 11/21/07 - 05/21/08

The Phase I effort will show the feasibility of reaching 10+kW average power in Yb-doped, photonic waveguide amplifiers emitting near-diffraction-limited output beams. We will show that this innovative technology permits us to avoid nonlinearities and thermo-optical fracture, while producing near diffraction-limited output in the multi-kilowatt...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-208
Budget: 09/28/07 - 09/28/09

High Energy Lasers (HELs) are required for a variety of military directed energy applications including area protection against rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM). A typical laser enabling these applications should provide at least 10 to 100 kW of output power with excellent beam quality. Moreover, to provide maximum benefit on the modern bat...
