APIC Corporation, Culver City, California, is being awarded a cost-plus-fixed-fee modification to a previously awarded Section 845 other transaction agreement with a not-to-exceed ceiling price of $16 million for Phase V Network Enable Wavelength Division Multiplexing-Highly Integrated Photonics (NEW-HIP) technology maturation efforts. Efforts will address the advancing system-level technology readiness level; manufacturing readiness level advancement for both the digital and analog network components; and link testing of digital and analog links using the application-specific components developed under the Navy NEW-HIP Program.
Teaming with researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University, the APIC Corporation recently announced a scientific breakthrough that could lead to computer chips powered by light pulses rather than electronics. Photonic chips could offer greater performance at a small percentage of today's power usage. The team made germanium act as a laser, which means it could be used as the light source on a new generation of photon-powered computers. Photons use a fraction of the power currently needed and do not generate heat as electronic power, eliminating the current need to cool computers and data centers.
