Weaponized Heating of Ignited Plasma (WHIP)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Michael Butterfield, Optical Scientist – (520) 575-8001
Award Amount: $149,932.00
Abstract:
Geost and the University of Arizona propose to develop a non-lethal weapon system based on dual-pulse femtosecond-nanosecond generation of dense plasma sparks in air at range. In this approach, the femtosecond laser pulse creates a dilute plasma filament, location of which is controlled through the… More

Weaponized Heating of Ignited Plasma (WHIP)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Michael Butterfield, Staff Optical Scientist – (520) 789-7100
Award Amount: $749,933.00
Abstract:
GEOST and the University of Arizona propose to develop and demonstrate the Weaponized Heating of Ignited Plasma Acoustic Modulation (WHIP-AM). This device produces acoustic signals at long range thereby providing the capability to convey messages and produce irritating acoustic tones. Through these… More
