Tech Days annually summarizes the USA Government's investment strategies and activities in developing technology for any application (such as telescopes, imaging systems, seeker/trackers, high-energy laser systems, solar energy, etc.) which requires optical components. Tech Days covers technology investment efforts in: optical materials; substrate design & manufacture; optical fabrication and metrology technology; optical coatings; wavefront sensing and control via adaptive optics; nano-technology imaging technologies; etc.


Registration
NASA personnel, please read the NCTS note below.

# Days Early (before 24 Oct.) Regular (after 24 Oct.) Onsite Full-Time Student

NCTS
It is very important for NASA personnel planning to attend Tech Days to get entered into NCTS. (I know that JPL has a different system.) The number of persons who will be permitted to travel depends on the number of persons in the system in NCTS 60 days before the meeting (Sept. 18).

For those of you who are NASA, the NCTS number for Tech Days is:

20213-15     Mirror Technology Days SBIR/STTR Workshop 2014
                   November 18-20 2014 Albuquerque NM


Exhibition
The New Mexico Optics Industry Association will be holding an Exhibition in conjunction with Tech Days. For more information please contact Lynore M. Abbott at: lynore@logicalm.com

The purpose of Tech Days is to:

Review the technical accomplishments of last year and plans for the future of mirror technology development being funded via the Government (e.g., SBIRs, DIIs, NASA ROSES, direct contracts, etc.)
Celebrate success stories of funded mirror technology development efforts which have either been integrated into a Government program or reached the commercial marketplace.
Offer Prime Contractors and/or Systems Integrators the opportunity to identify specific technologies which they would like to see developed.

There will be OPEN and CLOSED sessions. OPEN sessions are intended for presentations of basic mirror technology development research. Presentations in the OPEN session contain no Export Controlled information. CLOSED sessions are intended for presentations which are Export or ITAR Controlled. Attendance for CLOSED sessions is restricted to US Citizens and Green Card Holders. Presentations will be distributed via DVD/CD.

I look forward to seeing you in New Mexico.

Thank you for your support of Tech Days.

Sincerely;

H. Philip Stahl, PhD
