Abstract : AFOSR LRIR13RI08COR supports four related efforts, all primarily concerned with aspects of optical communications. However, some of our efforts also include the RF spectrum in that we are working toward a combined optical/RF link operating between our site in Rome NY and Stockbridge NY. We leverage AFRL 6.2 funds as well. AFOSR FY 2014 funds were largely devoted to salary for government and onsite contractors. Some funds have been used for equipment purchases. Section 2 reports on basic research into noise corrupting phase estimation in coherent states of light in the 1.5 micron band. Section 3 reports on a comparative study between long wavelength infrared (LWIR) versus short wavelength infrared (SWIR) propagation in fair and inclement weather. Section 4 reports on the combined optical/RF link work under way between Stockbridge and Rome. Section 5 characterizes the propagation of entangled photon pairs through a hyper spectral filter device originally designed for multi-access laser communications between a hub and multiple spokes.
