Novel exact solutions suggest the possibility of clean and efficient nonlinear compression of chirped solitary waves with appropriate tailoring of the gain or dispersion as a function of distance and with optional phase modulation. A numerical simulation with 20-fold compression is reported. Numerical tests reveal the robustness of the technique to perturbations of the initial condition or to the tailored gain/dispersion.
