Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

The proposal describes a next generation 3D imaging lidar (IML) suitable for a uniquely wide range of space applications - from orbital mapping and proximity operations of small bodies such as asteroid and comets, to full scale entry, decent and landing operations on other planetary bodies. Low Earth Orbit operations such as rendezvous and docki...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-089
Budget: 05/10/10 - 11/09/10

Sigma has developed a highly successful, airborne, 100 beam, photon-counting, 3D imaging lidar which operates at a laser repetition rate of 22 Khz and is therefore capable of an unprecedented 2.2 Megapixel per second data rate in topographic mode. The system uses a single passively Q-switched microchip laser operating at 532 nm (near the transmi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-080
Budget: 06/27/06 - 01/28/07

In this proposal, we present a real time data retrieval, fusion, and display system development based on the coherent Doppler lidar suite currently used on the Navy s Center for Interdisciplinary Remotely Piloted Aircraft Studies (CIRPAS) Twin Otter aircraft. The data fusion, processing and display system will provide a powerful tool for making ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-001
Budget: 04/17/06 - 04/17/07

The goal of the proposed work it to develop a fiber based amplifier capable of delivering 500 mW average power for free space, high speed optical communication. The amplifier must be capable of withstanding large radiation doses such as will be found in space. To avoid the radiation sensitivity caused by dopants used to adjust the silica index o...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-229
Budget: 02/04/05 - 06/30/11

Unmanned aerial surveillance requires large scale deployment of UAV based 3D lidar imagers. Although lidars and altimeters have been designed for science instruments on aircraft based operations, none so far have demonstrated a wide swath 3D imaging lidar suitable for use on a UAV platform. Sigma Space has demonstrated significant advances in th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-229
Budget: 03/11/04 - 03/11/05

We propose a wide swath, scanning, photon-counting lidar that automatically provides contiguous, co-registered, decimeter resolution 3D imaging and polarimetry data on a single overflight of the ground scene. Key components of the 3D imaging lidar include a microchip laser transmitter, 10x10 photon-counting segmented anode photomultiplier, a 100...
