13 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST051-009
Budget: 08/11/05 - 09/30/06

A new concept of ballistically deployed sensors that form an ad hoc network for uplinking data to the user will meet a critical need for a method of projecting situational awareness into high-risk or inaccessible locations. This new method of obtaining tactical intelligence puts extraordinary demands on the sensors and especially on imaging sen...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-105
Budget: 10/18/04 - 10/18/06

The use of visible and long wave infrared (LWIR) sensors is limited in many covert environments by their unacceptably high reflectivity. The high reflectivity makes these systems susceptible to detection by search CW laser systems. There are many traditional methods for reducing optical reflection, but most adversely affect the final system im...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/29/04 - 03/31/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): CDM Optics, Inc. proposes a new imaging paradigm that will substantially increase throughput of automated cell analysis systems used in diverse biomedical applications. The proposed technology, Software Selective Focus, will eliminate the need for continual and time-consuming focus adjustment as a sample i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/01/04 - 07/31/04

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of Phase I is to prove the concept of a new biological microscope system design that will allow biologists to quickly visualize fine cell structures that extend in depth. This will ultimately lead to the creation of a commercial variable-depth 3D microscope (Phase II) whose features will provide bi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-105
Budget: 01/02/04 - 07/02/04

The use of long wave infrared (LWIR) sensors is limited in many covert environments by their unacceptably high reflectivity. The high reflectivity makes them susceptible to detection by search CW laser systems. There are many traditional methods for the reduction of optical signature, but most adversely affect the final system image quality an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-022
Budget: 11/07/03 - 11/07/05

The Phase I effort demonstrated the feasibility of a low cost IR imaging system for use in high lethality, fire-and-forget projectiles. The imaging system was designed specifically for the Army's Light Fighter Lethality (LFL) Autonomous Seeker Projectile. The Phase I work combined two innovative technologies, an optical systems design process ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB031-004
Budget: 05/29/03 - 01/30/04

Off-axis illumination, optical proximity correction, phase shift masks, interferometric techniques, and pupil plane phase masks have been used to increase lithographic resolution. Further progress requires new techniques and methodologies. The optimal combination of aspheric optics and signal processing which we term Wavefront Coding has been ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-022
Budget: 01/28/03 - 11/29/03

CDM Optics proposes to develop a low-cost IR imaging system for use in high lethality Fire and Forget projectiles. The system is intended for incorporation into the Autonomous Seeker Projectile of the Army's Light Fighter Lethality STO under the Joint Service Small Arms Program. CDM Optics will design a low-cost optical system using two innova...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/02 - 12/30/03

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of Phase II is to make Wavefront Coded microscope systems that is fast, low cost, and available to biological researchers in a number of disciplines. During Phase I it was proven that Wavefront Coded fluorescence microscopes can solve biological imaging problems in ways...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/15/01 - 06/30/02

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of Phase II is to make Wavefront Coded microscope systems that is fast, low cost, and available to biological researchers in a number of disciplines. During Phase I it was proven that Wavefront Coded fluorescence microscopes can solve biological imaging problems in ways...
