SBIR/STTR

Digital acquisition and wavelength control of seed laser for space-based Lidar applications, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

This SBIR Phase I proposes to establish the feasibility of using a space qualifiable Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based digital controller to autonomously acquire and wavelength lock a tunable seed laser to a specified atomic or molecular reference. Successful development of this technology, due to its compact, efficient, and reliable design, is an important step towards enabling deployment of future space-based high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) systems for remote sensing systems, as well as improving the autonomous performance of deployed and developing ground and flight-based HSRL systems.
