15 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Virginia Commonwealth University

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD10-T002
Budget: 08/10/11 - 02/10/12

The objective of this proposal is to investigate the feasibility of hierarchical assembly to develop microstructures composed of piezoelectric and polymeric components and create macroscale high strength adaptive materials. The materials developed in this effort will change their microstructures in response to a variety of loading conditions an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO95-003
Budget: 11/09/98 - 11/09/00

AstroTerra's three dimensional display technology uses intersecting wavelength tuned lasers in a heated gaseous medijm to cause a point fluorescence which can be scanned around to create three dimensional images. These images are viewable from all sides and inherently possess the correct perspective to allow the eye to judgerelative depths. Th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-001
Budget: 09/14/98 - 03/15/99

The diode-pumped atomic vapor laser is a novel type of laser which takes advantage of the efficiencies of semiconductor lasers to provide a compact, efficient laser source capable of high power at blue and ultraviolet wavelengths, as well as red and infrared. In this laser, two semiconductor lasers at different wavelengths are used to excite ato...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-003
Budget: 09/02/98 - 03/01/99

The objective of this research is to investigate the use of photon-counting avalanche photodiodes as a laser communication sensor. This detector technology allows reduction of the received optical power. The system will also incorporate a cesium atomic line filter to eliminate background light and a wavelength locked communication laser matched ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-003
Budget: 04/17/98 - 10/16/98

The ultimate objective of this research is to develop a low cost, high bandwidth, quickly deployable communications system. The system relies on 10-20 Mbps RF communications within a 100 m diameter cell size. The cells are interconnected with 622, Mbps optical crosslinks. The critical technology in making these cross links feasible with low inst...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO96-003
Budget: 03/27/96 - 09/27/96
PI: Isaac Kim

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 96-1
Budget: 01/01/96 - 12/31/96

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO94-012
Budget: 07/18/95 - 07/18/97

The primary objective of Phase II is to design, fabricate, and measure the performance of an innovative gimbal specifically designed for a near term flight on a satellite as part of a free space laser communications demonstration. This gimbal, based upon a design being prototyped during an ongoing Phase I, will have a field-of-regard greater tha...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO95-003
Budget: 03/24/95 - 09/24/95

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO94-012
Budget: 04/21/94 - 10/22/94

The primary objective of this Phase I technical effort is to desgin, prototype and measure the performance of a novel compact gimbal that is specifically designed for high precision pointing of electro-optic systems from mobile platforms. This novel gimbal consists of two rotating joints oriented at an angle of 47.5 degrees from each other. By ...
