AS&T has been selected to develop a Photonic Sensor to support DARPA MTO/MRIG program for next generation Vibratory Gyroscopes
A new generation of micro-scale gyroscopes that is currently under the development by DARPA/MTO will eventually rival those of existing inertial grade macro-scale devices. In support of DARPA/MTO goals AS&T is developing a new photonic sensor, the conformal imaging vibrometer (CIV) capable of rapid and accurate characterization of the real-time micro-resonator dynamics. The CIV architecture eliminates the extensive set-up that is currently required in precision mass-balancing of vibratory gyroscopes in order to attain inertial grade performance (Q factor > 1x106). In addition, the fiber optic architecture and passive measurement probe of the CIV are ideally suited to vacuum installation, unlike current single-beam commercial laser Doppler vibrometers.
AS&T has been selected to receive an US Air Force Phase II SBIR grant to support development of its innovative technique of Target Characterization using Markov-chain Augmented Multiple-Modality Data Fusion
In order to establish a comprehensive picture of a situation of interest McMODAF employs a variety of sensors that combine data. This results in increased surveillance capabilities and effectiveness by giving a more complete, integrated picture of situations and enabling a quicker response while eliminating errors from potential failures of individual sensors. McMODAF technique is essential in providing effective identification, discrimination and tracking of the objects of interest whenever it is required to determine various aspects of its state and features for augmented space surveillance. In this program, AS&T will develop a decision-support toolbox with its operation based on the fusion of heterogeneous data generated by a set of imaging and non-imaging sensors with differing modalities. By designing and assembling an FPGA-based multi-sensor McMODAF platform, AS&T will be able to verify and optimize performance of the predictive system. The program will culminate with field demonstrations of the technology in an operational environment.
Office of Naval Research announced that AS&T has been awarded to Develop and Demonstrate the BeaconLess Adaptive-Optic System for HEL Beam Control
Effective performance of future energy-delivering laser systems requires an adaptive optics technique capable of correcting moderate to heavy atmospheric distortion of a high-power laser beam. The AS&T innovative technology implements a beaconless sensor based on detection of a target-scattered light. Post-processing of the beacon light field should enable a complete characterization of the turbulence-perturbed wavefront. In Phase I of this SBIR program AS&T will pursue a comprehensive analysis, modeling, design and integration of the BLAST system, culminating with its proof-of-concept experimental demonstration in the simulated laboratory environment. A prototype-level BLAST system will be designed, integrated and field-tested in a realistic environment if Phase II of this program is awarded.
