Phase 2 STTR

Institution: North Carolina State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-T017
Budget: 08/05/08 - 08/05/10

The proposed Phase II STTR program will implement forward-error correction and other processing, as well as coherent transceiver operation, in order to improve the performance of underwater communications systems. Significant reduction in the bit-error rate will be demonstrated under both shot-noise and ambient-noise limited conditions.

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: North Carolina State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-T017
Budget: 05/23/07 - 03/23/08

The proposed effort will investigate optimized modulation formats, error-correction codes and coherent operation to improve high-bandwidth undersea communications. Analysis suggests that these methods can provide significant improvement over current optical communications methods.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-198
Budget: 12/02/03 - 12/01/05

This laser utilizes an unique cavity and pumping design that will permit a much smaller, lighter-weight and lower power-consumption single-frequency laser. The cavity provides proper mode matching and cavity length using a much shorter distance than typical linear laser cavities, and the pump approach minimizes diode and laser-crystal cooling r...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-107
Budget: 08/19/03 - 08/19/05

Phase I design, analysis and breadboarding efforts demonstrated the basic feasiblity of a highly efficient optical communications system for connecting fiber-optically networked sensor arrays. The proposed Phase II Program will demonstrate in hardware the highly efficient, scalable transmitter, the azimuthally isotropic receiver, non-mechanical...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-198
Budget: 11/20/02 - 07/20/03

A Yb:YAG transmitter is proposed that will provide greatly enhanced non-acoustic sensor system performance through higher efficiency, higher average power and more favorable output wavelength. Ambalux will draw on its unique combination of experience in developing Yb:YAG laser technology and familiarity with optical sensors and non-acoustic tec...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-107
Budget: 05/31/02 - 11/30/02

The proposed fiber-optic terminus provides high-bandwidth connectivity to an optical transceiver on an underwater vehicle or other platform. Unique technology is used to provide full azimuthal coverage with no moving parts for acquisition, tracking, transmission and reception. The receiver, in particular, combines very high sensitivity with hi...
