  2. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1.To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates.Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is needed. ...

  3. AlInN/GaN HFET over Free-Standing bulk GaN substrates

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T001

    This proposed research for Phase II consideration involves the growth of AlInN/GaN heterostructure field effect transistors (HFET) on bulk GaN substrates. By combining a homoepitaxial substrate for the growth of the heterostructures with the lattice-matching ability of the AlInN alloy, it is expected that the defect density in the eventual HFETs can be reduced significantally, ultimately improvin ...

  4. Development of Advanced Barrier Device for Smart IR FPA Space Applications

    SBC: INTELLIEPI IR, INC            Topic: MDA09014

    This Phase II SBIR effort will develop high performance infrared detector arrays for MDA space applications using advanced barrier structure type-II superlattices based on GaSb. The epitaxy development will increase performance (QE, low dark current) with design iterations of NRL hybrid superlattice barrier structures for single-color large-format LWIR and two-color FPA.

  5. Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: MDA10001

    Use of data from multiple sensors provides the opportunity for improved ballistic missile defense search and tracking. Algorithms for combining multi-sensor data are required. Ballistic missile defense sensor data fusion is a challenging problem because of incompatibility in coordinate systems for different sensors, which makes it difficult to transfer variance and covariance information, and beca ...

  6. EM Emanation Reduction Technique for FPGAs

    SBC: Space Photonics, Inc.            Topic: MDA10017

    This effort seeks to build upon our successful Phase I effort to utilize, refine, and perform detailed testing on designs utilizing our EM Emanation Reduction (EMER) technique for FPGAs. The EMER technique is designed to reduce the feasibility of side-channel attacks aimed at gaining critical program information in FPGAs used in BMDS assets, by making it substantially more difficult for an exploit ...

  7. Wavelength Stabilized High-Power Diode Lasers for Alkali Atom Pumping

    SBC: Photodigm, Inc.            Topic: MDA10007

    This Phase II SBIR proposal is submitted to address the need for high-power narrow spectral linewidth diode laser pump sources in alkali vapor lasers. Diode-pumped alkali vapor lasers (DPALs) can be most efficiently pumped with spectrally-stabilized laser diode arrays (LDAs) with very narrow linewidths (a few GHz). This allows DPAL operation at lower pressure and increased efficiency due to opti ...

  8. Central Anti-Tamper Engine (CATE)

    SBC: QUICKFLEX INC.            Topic: MDA08043

    Modern sensor technology is capable of detecting miniscule changes in an operating environment, and providing a vast supply of precise data regarding potential causes for alarm. Unfortunately, since many tamper-detection responses involve disabling critical program information, the system designer must establish thresholds that are either set loose enough to not provide an adequate level of secur ...

  9. Ferroelectric Capacitors for Pulse Power Electronics

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    HIGH-DENSITY ENERGY STORAGE AND FAST DISCHARGE WILL BE CRITICAL IN A VARIETY OF HIGH POWER AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS. CAPACITORS ARE IDEAL FOR THESE PURPOSES, AS WELL AS FOR POWER CONDITIONING AND FILTERING. UNFORTUNATELY, BULK POWDER-BASED DIELECTRICS USED IN CAPACITORS HAVE SEVERE LIMITATIONS, ESPECIALLY THE HIGH NUMBER OF SHORT-INDUCING DEFECTS CAUSED BY POOR CONTROL OF MATERIAL PROPERTIES IN CERA ...

  10. Multiple Rectangular Discharge CO2 Laser

    SBC: Qsource, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An innovative discharge geometry for a very compact, area cooled, high average power CO2 laser employing a two mirror, waveguide-stable optical cavity is proposed. The specific Phase I result sought is the generation of an average CO2 output power of 1 W/cm2 of wall cooling area in a geometry that has a total cooling area of 140 cm2. A lightweight CO2 amplifier version of a future Phase II devic ...
