  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  5. Techniques for Real-time Hypervelocity Projectile fly-out Generation and Optimization

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA18002

    Corvid Technologies proposes to develop a real-time trajectory generation and optimization tool for integration into hypervelocity projectile (HVP) weapon systems. This technology will use the massively parallel computing power of graphics processing units (GPUs) to perform numerous simulations of HVP shots in short runtimes. The GPU based trajectory simulation tool will include a full six degree- ...

  9. Novel HEMT based on GaN on Diamond for High Power Amplifiers

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: MDA07034

    GaN based HEMTs are capable of achieving high power density at high frequency. Thus, solid-state high power amplifiers based on GaN will be smaller and lighter than incumbent technology. The use of a silicon substrate for GaN HEMTs provides a reliable GaN device which is also economical. MMICs based GaN on Si are ideally suited for applications in X-band radar systems that are part of the ballisti ...

  10. AlGaN/GaN HFETs on Silicon for BMDS X-Band Radars

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: MDA06T012

    AlGaN/GaN FETs on Si will be developed and optimized for operation at high frequency (X-band and above). The high frequency performance will be improved by modifications to the existing commercialized sub-4GHz GaN FET platform technology that’s currently available at Nitronex. The modifications will be made in the epitaxial structure, device layout and gate length for maximum X-band radar perf ...
