Epitaxial GaN on Flexible Metal Tapes for Low-Cost Transistor DevicesSBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC. Topic: DEFOA0000941
GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of EnergyARPA-E
Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane WindowsSBC: NANOSD, INC. Topic: DEFOA0001429
NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of EnergyARPA-E
Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor SwitchesSBC: ASR Corporation Topic: DTRA16A004
A compact laser driver will allow photoconductive semiconductor switches to be used in small EMP simulator "building blocks" (EMPBB). Combined with a battery powered on-board pulsed power system, these EMPBBs will allow the construction of flexible EMP test facilities with nothing more than a single fiber optic timing connection to each EMPBB.STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Innovative Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Technology NodesSBC: RELIABLE MICROSYSTEMS LLC Topic: DTRA16A003
Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitionsSBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING INC Topic: DTRA16A001
This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM ApplicationsSBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: DTRA16A004
For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Portable and Automated Radiation Effects Test Structures for Advanced Technology NodesSBC: MICROELECTRONICS RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION Topic: DTRA16A003
Micro-RDC will develop portable radiation effects test structures that scales to new process nodes. These structures will enable the investigation of the effects of radiation on the new technology from the material processing level as well as the circuit level. The production of the chosen structures and the development of software to extract the model parameters will form the framework. A suit ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron DetectorsSBC: RADIATION DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: DTRA14B005
At the completion of the research and development effort a Li foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625 cm^2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to have an intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiency of 55% or greater and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10^-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrom ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat WeaponsSBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC Topic: DTRA14B001
The US DoD requires robust ways of neutralizing threats posed by hostile powers and terrorist organizations that may be in possession of dangerous weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Unfortunately, the weapons currently available to the DoD do not offer a way for the WMD to be destroyed without risking the spread of that material throughout the area. The strategy for the defeat of biological weapo ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
