Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-138
Budget: 03/18/13 - 06/03/15

ABSTRACT: This Phase II SBIR effort will focus on the design and fabrication of a wide-format mid-wave infrared scene projector (with 1000x500 pixels, each 40 um on a side) based on VLSI-Membrane-Mirror-Light-Modulator (VLSI-MMLM) technology. They key technologies that will be developed in this program to make this project successful include: (...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-003
Budget: 02/01/12 - 07/31/12

This Phase I SBIR program will initiate the development of a large-format mid-wave infrared (MWIR) scene projector based on the Company's existing membrane-mirror spatial light modulator technology. The scene projector is based on a VLSI membrane-mirror light modulator (VLSI-MMLM) that uses a deformable membrane mirror to modulate an off-chip li...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-138
Budget: 09/28/09 - 11/14/11

The Phase II goal of the Low-temperature multi-spectral MEMS projector project is to demonstrate a working prototype of a 4-channel (MWIR and visible RGB) flickerless scene projector operating between -35C and 50C. This multi-spectral projector is based the VLSI-membrane-mirror light modulator (VLSI-MMLM) technology which uses a membrane mirror...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-125
Budget: 03/03/08 - 12/03/08

The goal is to develop a dual-waveband (long-wave and mid-wave infrared) flickerless scene projector based on membrane-mirror-on-VLSI spatial light modulator technology. Two very high resolution modulators are combined in a novel zero-order pass spatial filtering system to achieve true simultaneous dual-band scene projection. The modulators emp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-138
Budget: 01/30/08 - 10/29/08

The Phase I goal is to explore novel membrane materials and develop a design for a multi-waveband (visible-RGB and mid-wave infrared) flickerless scene projector that can operate at temperatures ranging from -35C to +50C. The anticipated design will most likely be based on membrane-mirror-on-VLSI spatial light modulator technology. Thus low-po...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-224
Budget: 06/14/07 - 03/31/08

The goal of this SBIR Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of a low-cost, large-bipolar-stroke, high-resolution, VLSI-chip-driven, continuous phase-sheet deformable mirror (with no support-posts) for adaptive-optics wavefront correction for below-the-weather unmanned aerial vehicle satellite communications systems. The proposed devi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-06-06
Budget: 09/30/06 - 03/31/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary/Abstract: This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I Project will explore the feasibility of development of a compact, low-cost adaptive-optical ophthalmoscope system for high-resolution retinal imaging and high-precision photodynamic therapy/laser surgery of the retina. Specifically, we ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-310
Budget: 06/20/06 - 07/31/08

The goal is to develop a dual-waveband (visible and mid-wave infrared) flickerless scene projector based on membrane-mirror-on-VLSI spatial light modulator technology. Two modulators are combined in a novel zero-order block spatial filtering system to achieve true simultaneous dual-band scene projection. The modulators employ a spatially contin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-310
Budget: 05/10/05 - 02/10/06

The goal is to explore and develop physical modifications to Optron's MEMS-on-VLSI membrane-mirror spatial light modulator technology to demonstrate feasibility of a novel, portable, flickerless multi-spectral (UV, visible, and infrared) projector system for testing imaging seekers. The proposed technology approach employs a spatially continuou...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-003
Budget: 04/15/05 - 04/15/06

Recent developments in MEMS-based deformable mirrors offer improved performance for adaptive optics (AO) systems. However, because of current limitations in wavefront sensing and processing, these performance gains have been largely unexploited. To address this need, we propose building an AO system with dual wavefront sensing techniques. The ...
