Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: DHP16-004
Budget: 09/30/16 - 04/29/17

Existing visual screening devices consist of illuminated test cards. By rotating the knob, images may be changed; however, once the system is loaded with cards it cannot be easily reconfigured. There are a limited number of cards that a unit can hold at one time, and it is impossible to change cards on the fly if a patients vision needs further ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N162-097
Budget: 09/26/16 - 03/30/17

The goal of the proposed research is to optimize operating parameters for high-speed, high-resolution non-contact multi-spectral optical surface tracking. The immediate application is to extract drive shaft torque from a jet engines main shaft in real time. The technique, however, is applicable to power-transmission shafts and surface deformatio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: OSD162-004X
Budget: 09/23/16 - 09/29/18

The commercial marketplace has made tremendous advances in Virtual Reality (VR) technology and product maturity. VR is being used to enhance training in a number of areas including maintenance and operation of complex systems, but application of this technology to the training of dismounted soldiers has proven challenging. Fortunately, these adv...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-105
Budget: 09/20/16 - 09/19/17

This proposal describes work to enable new capabilities for a unique millimeter-wave (mmW) test instrument already being prepared for AMRDEC. The instrument's deployment to Department of Defense (DOD) test facilities and to civilian research facilities broadens understanding of how ordinary objects interact with mmW radiation, and will in turn ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-032
Budget: 08/11/16 - 02/07/17

SA Photonics shipboard video access system (SVAS) provides a cost effective way to extend availability of shipboard live tactic video to practically anywhere onboard. The SVAS is compatible with various analog and digital video interface standards from analog composite video to HDMI and SDI. The live video sources are encoded into high performan...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-009
Budget: 07/29/16 - 01/28/17

SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development of the SAFire E40/200 output optical waveform agile laser system for characterization of advanced seekers using semi-active lases (SALs). The SAFire allows the user commandable waveform parameters such as pulsewidth, pulse repetition factor (PRF), and pulse amplitude as well as coded waveform ab...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Columbia University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T024
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

SA Photonics is pleased to propose the SOCRATES free space optical communication and sensing system featuring the Photonic Optical Multicast Mast Unit (POMMU). SOCRATES enables 360 degree multicast capability of high bandwidth communication in addition threat search and track capability. SA Photonics will team with the Prof. Michal Lipson of the...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-029
Budget: 07/11/16 - 01/07/17

LightCables is a modular system designed for naval as well as many other applications. LightCables multiplexes a variety of tactical signals on board a warship, e.g. USS Lake Champlain equipped with Aegis combat system, onto an optical cable using ruggedized wavelength division multiplexing. The system is capable of handling low and high speed s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-035
Budget: 07/06/16 - 01/02/17

SA Photonics Neptune-HDR system provides high data rate underwater optical communications with data rates greater than 1 Gbps at link distances up to 100m in clean ocean conditions. The Neptune-HDR system combines techniques from our field proved terrestrial Free-Space Optical (FSO) communication systems and our earlier generation Neptune UW FSO...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-036
Budget: 06/22/16 - 06/30/17

SA Photonics has developed a complete design for a wideband Optical RF Memory (ORFM) system which provides high spur-free dynamic range over a 20 GHz instantaneous bandwidth. The heart of the system is a high accuracy true-time delay unit which provides simultaneous fine time delay granularity and long maximum time delays. The signal path is co...
