Applied Energetics Wins U.S. Army Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer Contract for Development of Directed Energy System
TUCSON, AZ /ACCESSWIRE/June 21, 2022/ Applied Energetics, Inc. (OTCQB:AERG), a leader in ultrashort pulse laser technology, is pleased to provide further details on its $172 Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) contract. $000 with the U.S. Army for research and development of a directed-energy system capable of defeating threats specified by the U.S. Army that it reported on June 8, 2022 in a Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The objective of the contract is the delivery of an ultra-wideband infrared (IR) source.
Under this contract, Applied Energetics will model new approaches for eye-safe transmission of ultra-wideband infrared laser pulses to electro-optical sensors. Electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are imaging systems used for military applications. In addition to this contract, Applied Energetics received a multi-year grant from the Department of the Navy, Office of Naval Research on June 1, 2022, to develop an optical system capable of defeating customer-specified threats for integration on the US Marine Corps platforms.
“We are excited to take the next step in innovating, developing and delivering this essential IRCM capability that is needed to support Army modernization efforts and defeat next-generation sensors in a multi-battlespace. -areas. The Department of Defense’s continued investments in directed energy and ultra-short pulse technology should provide our national security organizations with significant benefits. We look forward to expanding our portfolio of ultrashort pulse laser technologies with this key project,” said Dr. Gregory Quarles, President and CEO of Applied Energetics.
The STTR program is a federally funded initiative to integrate small business technology innovation into government-supported research and development programs. STTRs require the small business to team up with a university or non-profit organization and are structured in three potential phases. Applied Energetics plans to partner with the University of Arizona’s James C. Wyant College of Optical Sciences for Phase I.
Dr. Quarles added, “We have had the pleasure of working alongside optical scientists and engineers from the Wyant College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona for many years. We are pleased to continue this collaboration with some of the brightest optics and photonics minds in academia on this important work for the US military.
