Abstract:The need for higher bandwidth communications supporting video as well as data transmission to the warfighter is driving the development of satellite-based free space lasercom. However, the current state-of-the-art in laser transmitter technology is mainly directed at fiber optics systems which have… more
Abstract:The unlimited field of regard of head mounted displays (HMDs) provide military users significant advantages in situational awareness. Because of the limited resolution of the HMD display source, HMD designers are often faced with the "resolution/field of view invariant", which says that an HMD can… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose the FALCON space situational awareness system (SSA). The system combines high sensitivity passive sensors with a high performance compact LIDAR. The combination allows long range detection of ASOs along with precision object range and range rate determination. … more
Abstract:UAVs offer a low cost, highly capable aerial platform that can be used without risk to aircrews. The value of the RQ-4 Global Hawk and the MQ-1C Warrior in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the war in Afghanistan, has been well publicized. New, high resolution sensor payloads and an overall increase in… more
Abstract:Due to the high cost and long lead time of space based thermal management systems, there is an increased need for a space qualified thermal network system which can maintain critical components within an acceptable range during operation and be flexible in design to adapt to a wide range of… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose the COMET Software Defined Laser system for satellite applications. The COMET laser source is an integrated source that supports LIDAR, wavelength diversity broadband sensing, and laser based free-space communication applications from a single laser source. The… more
Abstract:Missile systems requiring lock-on after launch capability require Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) that exhibit low drift to support navigation functions and high output data rates to support target tracking. Missile warheads impose size constraints and environmental performance requirements on the… more
Abstract:Compressive sensing is based on the notion that the information content of a signal may be much less than its instantaneous bandwidth, and that this signal"sparseness"can be exploited directly during the sensing operation. When applied to the sampling of pulsed Radar signals, compressive… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development of the dynamic phased array characterization (DPAC) system. DPAC combines very high precision and stability probe technology with the Blazer high speed synchronized receiver and customized signal processing and display software to enable… more
Abstract:Motion blur or smear can limit the performance of digital display systems. Smear comes from two main display attributes their non-zero response time and their finite hold time. The first effect causes the image from one frame to persist into the subsequent frame, while the second effect ensures… more
Abstract:Naval submarines depend on reliable methods of communicating status to Fleet Command. In the event of a disaster, it is imperative to have a backup method to transmit a distress signal. SEPIRBs (Submarine Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons) provide this function. Once released these beacons… more
Abstract:SA Photonics' Jammer Emulator (JEM) is a flexible and programmable wideband DRFM Jammer Emulator intended to be able to rapidly evaluate the impact of new threat waveforms. JEM is a high resolution, dual channel jammer simulator that supports large varieties of DRFM and ECM emulation capabilities. A… more
Abstract:SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development plan for our FALCON Miniature Laser Designator (MLD) for small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Laser designators have been successfully fielded on large UAVs such as Global Hawk and Predator, but the large size, weight, and power of these… more
Abstract:SA Photonics, in conjunction with our teammates at the University of Arizona, have developed LARS, the low-cost augmented reality system.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
