Leading Innovations in Intelligent Optical Systems
Optonicus has well established expertise and provides unique technical solutions
in the following areas of development:
- Wavefront and beam control hardware including beam
steering and deformable mirrors, wavefront sensors, beam and image quality sensors,
- Design and integration of adaptive optics systems
for directed energy, laser illumination, target tracking, designation, active and
passive imaging, atmospheric sensing, and characterization
- Numerical simulation of atmospheric effects and
their impact on performance of various optical systems; analysis includes target
in-the-loop propagation, anisoplanatic imaging, speckle, thermal blooming, and refractive
effects. High-speed wave-optics simulation tools are based on GPU/CUDA technology.
- Conformal optical systems including fiber-array
based adaptive laser beam projection systems, sparse imaging systems, coherent LIDAR,
laser tracking, and remote sensing systems.
- Advanced control and signal/image processing algorithms
for mitigation of negative impact of non-linear optical, turbulence (atmospheric
and underwater), and jitter effects.
- Adaptive free-space laser communication systems
that are robust, light-weight, secure, and operate at high data rates for advanced
Optics.org News Desk:
Optonicus "has precisely hit a target from 7 kilometres, thanks in large part to a 21-element
optical phased array (OPA) that maintains good beam quality over such large stand-off distances."
Stars and Stripes:
High power laser technology could 'revolutionize' manufacturing. The directed-energy
technology is being developed at the University of Dayton.
