  1. Programmable Picosat Transceiver

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF112072

    ABSTRACT:The goal of the Space Test Program is to enable the US Air Force to rapidly develop emerging space technologies by providing economical flight opportunities to increase a technologys TRL. Over the past decade, the CubeSat form factor has emerged as an economical platform for testing technologies that can be packaged within the 10x10x30 cm form factor. However, the lack of a programmable S ...

  3. Vacuum Compatible High Gradient Insulators

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF151013

    ABSTRACT:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a vacuum compatible, high gradient insulator (HGI) based on low SEE yield aluminum nitride (AlN) ceramic with high surface flashover resistance for pulse power applications. In Phase I we will design and fabricate AlN-Metal HGIs, and investigate the effects of AlN and metal layer thicknesses, and number of layers on the ...

  4. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  5. Multi-channel tunable ultra-stable source for all-fiber space-based atomic interactions

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF151080

    ABSTRACT:The development of compact, reliable inertial navigation systems is essential for applications where GPS-based systems are ineffective or unavailable. This Phase I SBIR will establish the feasibility of developing an ultra-stable, compact, robust, integrated laser source suitable for atom-based precision navigation and timing (PNT) systems. AdvRs design is enabled by capitalizing on well- ...

  6. Automated Scaling Software for Oblique Incidence Ionograms

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151098

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this solicitation is to develop real-time automatic scaling software for oblique ionograms (OIs). The NWRA team has developed an extensive HF propagation computational tool set, which includes a capability called APEx (Automated Point Extraction) for automatically finding vertical ionogram (VI) traces within an ionogram image. APEx does not require pre-separation of the O ...

  7. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...

  8. Influence of Long-range Ionospheric and Atmospheric Effects on Surveillance and Communication Systems

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151154

    ABSTRACT:Abstract: Electromagnetic signals used in communications and sensor systems can be seriously impacted after propagation through a region of the atmosphere or ionosphere disturbed by turbulence. This work will develop new physics-based technology that calculates EM propagation from HF to laser frequencies, including the effects of turbulence with long correlation length in the direction of ...

  9. Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: To produce high dielectric strength insulator materials, our approach, called Optimized Additive Manufacturing for High Dielectric Strength (OAHDS), will optimize fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing in order to fabricate high density parts. Currently, thermoplastics 3D printed via FFF have dielectric strengths one to three orders of magnitude lower than injection molded parts ma ...

  10. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...
