Description

This 88,000 square foot complex is used to investigate basic physical science in support of missile technology development. It incorporates office space, dedicated specialized laboratory spaces, a high-bay area, and a laser beam propagation range with backdrop. The laboratories are equipped with specialized equipment such as optical tables, isolated and filtered power connections in a variety of configurations, water, supplies and drains, vacuum/pressurized air connections, and humidity control. Optical processing and correlator development for automatic target recognition and cueing occupies 5,400 square feet, including laboratories, offices, and storage spaces. Integrated and guided-wave optics research occupies 3,200 square feet in three dedicated Class-100 clean rooms. The focus of laboratory efforts is on micro-electro-mechanical technology for missile navigation and guidance, photonic bandgap materials for sensor protection, conformal missile domes, optical interconnects, and chaos control.
