  1. An improved passivation process for the fabrication of high performance antimony based III-V superlattice materials

    SBC: IRDT Solutions, Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Phase I objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of our proposed passivation approach to minimize the dark current noise and improve the quantum efficiency in the GaSb based type II superlattice detectors. Phase I goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of our technology to fabricate photodiodes with cut-off wavelength in excess of 10µm, quantum efficiency exceeding 70% and dark current density ...

  5. Intelligent RF-IR Data Fusion using Artificial Intelligence Techniques

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    There may be no more important mission for the US military than protection from ballistic missile attack. For any configuration of sensors, it is therefore extremely important to make the most of the collected sensor data. Specifically, this proposal describes how this objective can be accomplished by using artificial intelligence techniques to implement human-quality reasoning on object feature ...
