  1. Lightweight Fiber Reinforced Aluminum Components for Missile Structures

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA18006

    The Missile Defense Agency is searching for innovative technologies to implement in future interceptor missiles and kill vehicles that will produce weight savings within the systems. To answer this need, Touchstone Research Laboratory proposes to develop fiber reinforced aluminum (FRA) metal matrix composite components to replace those that were originally made from Ti-6-4. The FRA is able to reta ...

  2. Development of Novel RAD-Hard ASICs and a Modular Design Methodology Using Asynchronous Architectures

    SBC: Nanomatronix, LLC            Topic: MDA18007

    The NMT/UA team propose to develop a radiation-hardened, low power, and highly robust delay-insensitive asynchronous circuit design methodology in 90nm technology, prototyped by designing a SET/SEL/SEU immune asynchronous microcontroller test chip (PIC 16C57, for example).The proposed Phase 1 SBIR effort will focus on design, simulation, prototyping and demonstration of the key functional blocks o ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Carbon Foam Lightning and Thermal Protection System

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA14014

    The feasibility of using a low-cost, coal-based carbon foam (CFOAM) for providing lightning and thermal protection for ground-based missile systems was demonstrated during Phase I.Touchstone proposes to build on the Phase I efforts and take the development of this system to the next stage.During Phase I, a concept was developed that will provide sufficient thermal protection to the underlying mate ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Epi-ready SiC Substrates

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

    Commercially viable silicon carbide device manufacturing processes depend on an ability to grow'low defect density epitaxial layers. Low defect density epitaxial layers start with pristine SiC substrate surfaces. Epi-ready pristine SiC surfaces are not commercially available. The results of this-programme should remedy this. In Phase I we will demonstrate a cost-effective, reproducible ex-situ sur ...
