  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Development of an Active Vibration Supression System (AVSS) Using Combined Curved Flextensional and Shear Actuation

    SBC: APPLIED THERMAL SCIENCES            Topic: N/A

    "The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate and evalulate the use of a Smart Monotoring Active Control System for Seeker-Platform Vibration Suppression designed for use in the Atmospheric Interceptor Technology (AIT) Kill Vehicle. This system isintended to afford a structural attachment interface between the seeker and the AIT forebody substructure. Advanced composite structures, employing ...

  4. Low Cost Lightweight Hot Gas Valve/Nozzle for Divert and Axial Thrusters

    SBC: APPLIED THERMAL SCIENCES            Topic: N/A

    "A unique hot gas valve/nozzle concept promises low cost and lightweight for divert and axial thrusters. Key requirements for divert and attitude control (DAC) systems on kinetic kill vehicles (KVV's) are lightweight, low volume and cost, high impulse withminimal power requirements. Current hot gas valves for DAC's employ exotic materials such as rhenium to prevent ablation and erosion that seve ...

  5. A new THz-to-millimeter-wave source

    SBC: ArkLight            Topic: N/A

    "This SBIR Phase I project focuses on the implementation of a new THz module that can emit coherent and tunable THz waves. Recently, coherent THz radiation was generated at room temperature by PI, with a tuning range of 56.8-1618 ¿m (5.27 - 0.18 THz), inGaSe based on difference-frequency generation. The peak THz power can be as high as 69.4 W at 196 ¿m. The corresponding photon conversion effici ...

  6. Development of an Isotropic Etching Method of Surface Preparation of SiC

    SBC: BANDGAP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This Phase I SBIR program is aimed at demonstrating the principle of an approach for the surface preparation of SiC wafers comparable or superior to chemo-mechanical polishing. In the Phase I program, surface preparation of 4H-SiC wafers 50 mm (2 inches)in diameter will be demonstrated. Also in Phase I, the prepared (treated) surface of the SiC wafer will be characterized for average surface ro ...

  7. An Approach for the Growth of Long Silicon Carbide Boules

    SBC: BANDGAP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This Phase I program is aimed at demonstrating the principle of an approach for the growth of 4H-SiC boules 50 mm in diameter but of length equal to 50 mm, which is approximately twice the length of boules grown by convential approaches. Also in Phase I,the grown boules will be sliced into wafers, lapped, and polished; the polished wafers will be characterized for structural properties; comparis ...

  8. Strain-Enhanced Tunnel Diode Technology

    SBC: Belford Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "We intend to increase by an order of magnitude, the current density of silicon-based tunnel diodes. This increase directly relates to a corresponding increase in performance (speed). Apart from being the fastest of all microelectronic devices, tunneldiodes (TDs) have negative differential resistance, which gives them unusual circuit qualities. When attached to integrated circuits they improve the ...

  9. Germanium-Free Strained-SOI Wafers

    SBC: Belford Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to combine the technologies of SOI manufacture with strain-inducing wafer bonding to produce Strained-Si On Insulator (SSOI) wafers. Optimizing this new Strained-Silicon-on-Insulator will increase carrier mobilities by a factor of at least x3,lower the band gap by 20%, and reduce operating power of existing technologies by a factor of x4. The above performance enhancements are over and ...

  10. Improved Temperature Measurement for High Yield Manufacturing

    SBC: Bellwether Instr., LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Bellwether proposed the development of an improved emissivity compensating pyrometer (ECP). This improved pyrometer will have advantages over conventional pyrometers including fewer measurement artifacts. Furthermore, the instrument will be initiallydeveloped for use with GaN processes, used for high power FET's and solar blind detectors. Improved process temperature measurement will lead to f ...
