Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-053
Budget: 09/03/08 - 09/01/10

The objective of this program is to develop adaptive optic laser mirrors which exhibit minimum distortion when irradiated with high power laser flux. Two approaches will be tried utilizing two sets of previously selected candidate materials. Results will indicate how to significantly improve the performance of the Air Force ACDM and BCDM laser m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-053
Budget: 03/26/07 - 09/26/07

Several possible material and design changes to improve HEL deformable mirrors will be discussed. The principles will apply to Air Force ACDM and BCDM mirrors and to other HEL mirror designs. Simple changes to conventional mirrors and a new mounting technique are evaluated first using highly efficient finite element thermal analysis. Material ch...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 02-1
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

NASA is interested in large, coherent, primary mirrors with good optical figure. An approach now followed by all major observatories is to make the large mirror of smaller segments that are phased together. Hexagons 1 meter in diameter are a possible segment size. Over one hundred one meter segments are required even for a 10 meter diameter prim...
