Eagle lands SBIR grant to develop WDM receiver

The Department of Defense Ballistic Missile Defense Organization awarded Eagle Optoelectronics Inc. (Broomfield, CT) a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to produce receivers for wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) applications. Under the terms of the $500,000 contract, Eagle will develop an intelligent wavelength tracking receiver capable of compensating for source wavelength instability, lowering the technical constraints on WDM laser sources.

Eagle lands SBIR grant to develop WDM receiver

The Department of Defense Ballistic Missile Defense Organization awarded Eagle Optoelectronics Inc. (Broomfield, CT) a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to produce receivers for wavelength-division-multiplexing (WDM) applications. Under the terms of the $500,000 contract, Eagle will develop an intelligent wavelength tracking receiver capable of compensating for source wavelength instability, lowering the technical constraints on WDM laser sources. Long-range plans call for Eagle to enter the commercial market for WDM-based local-area computer networks, according to vice president of research and development Hein¥Willebrand.
