  1. High-Efficiency Low-Volume Flight Pulse Tube Cryocooler

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA17T003

    CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partners San Jose St. University (SJSU) and Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company (LMSSC) propose to develop a robust epoxy resin regenerator capable of improving cryocooler efficiency by more than 30%, and to design an enhanced compressor motor capable of improving the cryocooler efficiency by more than 20%. LMSSC manufactures a space cryocooler that already meets most ...

  2. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future MDA space missions will utilize small spacecraft with correspondingly small, advanced sensor systems.Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease detector noise and increase detector sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature.The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enable ...

  3. Advanced Technologies for Reducing Decompression Obligation and Risk

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB131004

    Despite over 100 years of research, decompression sickness (DCS) remains the mission-limiting factor in the design and execution of combat diving operations.Divers may spend over an hour decompressing after spending as little as ten minutes at the target depth.While decompressing, divers are limited in vertical mobility, making then susceptible to detection and threatening their survivability.This ...

  4. A Low-Cost, High Performance Collodial Quantum Dot MWIR Focal Plane Array

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: ST13B002

    There is a growing need for the wider deployment of infrared cameras in various defense applications, from handheld to vehicle-mounted. Meeting this requires a low-cost imaging device that has low noise and high frame rates. Microbolometers largely fill this need in the longwave infrared regime, although they suffer from relatively slow response times and are near their technological performance l ...

  5. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...

  6. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology: Measurement Tools for Quantum Information Processing

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: SB082007

    The special properties of quantum states make them attractive for emerging applications in quantum communication and computing. However, the very properties of quantum states that make them useful also make them difficult to measure. Quantum state tomography is a measurement tool which allows for complete characterization of quantum states. Although great progress has been made in researching quan ...

  7. High Pressure Singlet Delta Oxygen Generator

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA07050

    The primary objective of CU Aerospace’s Phase I work will be to investigate a relatively new, highly innovative high pressure singlet-delta oxygen generator (SOG) concept for the chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL). Estimates are that this SOG concept will significantly improve the pressure recovery of COIL systems while retaining efficiency. The results of the Phase I research will lay the fo ...

  8. HgCdTe Detectors Under Non-Equilibrium Conditions for High Operating Temperatures

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA07015

    High sensitivity HgCdTe infrared detector arrays operating at 77K can be tailored for response across the infrared spectrum and are commonly utilized for infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs). However, the cooling systems required to achieve the desired sensitivity makes them heavy and therefore unsuitable for many applications. Infrared arrays operating above ~200K could be thermoelectrically-cooled ...

  9. Small Engines Designed for High Efficiency, High Power Density and Quiet Operations

    SBC: KINETIC BEI LLC            Topic: SB082010

    The Nutating Disk Engine is a new technology with significant advantages, and multiple potential military and commercial applications. Development work has focused on a dual-disk version of the engine, including a demonstrator prototype. Second-generation prototype is currently in development. This DARPA program provides an opportunity design a single-disk version. Development work to date has ...

  10. Front End Opto-Electronics for Future Radio Communications

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: ST081013

    The innovation in the proposed program is the development of a unique process technology that will enable the realization of a high current InP based photodetector with improved current response and reliability performance. The process technology is an epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process where the epitaxial material is completely removed from the substrate. The InP substrate is left intact and can be ...
