As a part of the DARPA Excalibur program, Optonicus delivered to MIT/LL the high-power (1.5 kW per fiber) fiber-array laser head composed of 21 adaptive fiber collimators (subapertures) with integrated water-cooling system, fiber-tip x and y positioners for wavefront tip/tilt control at each fiber-array subaperture, and 42-channel SPGD control system with high-voltage amplifiers and control […]
Optonicus completed a set of atmospheric coherent beam combining experiments over 7-km propagation path using the low-power fiber-array laser system composed of 21 adaptive fiber-collimators with integrated sensing and tracking capabilities.
Optonicus demonstrated in strong scintillation conditions a high-resolution, fast complex field sensor
Optonicus completed and experimentally demonstrated in strong scintillation conditions a high-resolution (256×256), fast (> 60 frame/sec) complex field sensor based on Multi-Aperture Phase Reconstruction (MAPR) technique. Developed under an HEL-JTO contract, the MAPR sensor is designed for operation in deep turbulence conditions and in presence of mechanical jitter.
From : “…De Gruyter”Dayton OH January 22,2014 – The Optonicus paper, “Speckle Effects In Target-in-the-loop Laser Beam Projection Systems” published in the Journal of Advance Optical Technologies has attained most downloaded status and has generated interest in the wider community on the “Space Telescope Optics” LinkedIn group. Currently, it is the most popular discussion in the […]
From : “…Optics.org News”Dayton OH March 11,2014 – The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) says that a developmental laser weapon 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. Although the latest demonstration was […]
