  3. Compact Modular DACS

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: MDA18008

    GTL has identified an innovative architecture for KV Divert and Attitude Control System (DACS). Instead of mounting a set of liquid propellant tanks around a central structural mast as done in conventional storable liquid DACS, the Compact Modular DACS uses an innovative configuration for propellant storage.The CMDACS architecture has increased volumetric efficiency that will increase the kinemati ...

  4. Structural Reactive Polymeric Materials

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: MDA15004

    Missiles produced with reactive materials can add chemical energy to the kinetic energy generated on impact with a target. Thus, reactive materials have potential to serve as structural components resulting in possible increase lethality without a weight impact. In Phase I, Tetramer will demonstrate a new material system with significantly stronger mechanical properties and excellent reactive prop ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Blue-Green LED Arrays for Scanned Linear Array Imaging

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

    Virtual displays have tremendous potential in defense applications such as virtual reality training, battlefield support, and information systems. Full color displays require red, blue, and green LED arrays of which only red is commercially available. This program teams ATMI, a recognized leader in the GaN growth community, with Reflection Technology, a leader in virtual display technology. ATMI w ...

  8. High Dielectric MOSFET Oxides on SiC

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

    Increasing thermal and power loads in circuitry demand electrical components which can operate at temperatures up to 400 C and beyond . A combination of high bandgap semiconductors and improved dielectrics is needed to solve this problem. ATMI has maj or programs in production of both SiC/GaN semiconductor materials and high dielectric constant complex oxide thin films, in particular barium stront ...

  9. Edge-emitting Nitride-based Bragg Reflector Lasers

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

    In this program we will develop narrow linewidth AlGaN Bragg reflector lasers suitable as injection seeds for solid-state W lasers in the range of 280 to 330 nm. These systems are compact, light weight, and low-power consuming and ideal for airborne lidar systems. Bragg reflector lasers have never been fabricated in the nitrides so in this Phase I program we will develop the technologies necessary ...

  10. Solar-blind GaN p-I-n UV Photodiodes

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

    Photodiodes have high efficiency since the absorption region thickness is large. However, no GaN p-i-n photodiodes have been reported due to the difficulty in achieving low background doped GaN. This Phase I program seeks to determine the increase in quantum efficiency achievable by the use of a thick intrinsic layer inserted in the p-n junction to increase the absorption region thickness. In addi ...
