  1. NEA Vacuum Microelectronics

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA20T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in partnership with Brookhaven National Lab (BNL), will develop vacuum channel-based microelectronic analogues of the classic vacuum diodes and triodes, as well as novel single element logic gates. Proposed devices possess an inherent physical and data-fault tolerance of extreme conditions such as ionizing radiation and temperature. The key advance embodied by the pro ...

  2. Stealth Solid Rocket Propellant

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA20T001

    Physical Sciences Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a high performance solid rocket propellant (SSRP) with significantly reduced infrared (IR) plume signature. The SSRP provides an increase in Specific Impulse (Isp), and equivalent Density Specific Impulse (ρIsp), relative to state-of-the-art aluminized hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) ammonium perchlorate (AP) composite prope ...

  3. Bio-inspired Autonomous Neuromorphic Detector for Identification and Tracking (BANDIT)

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: MDA20T003

    Biological vision systems capture and process extremely complex environments with high accuracy. Whereas conventional imaging systems require large amounts of memory and power to run, bio-inspired systems can maintain performance while reducing the size, weight, and power requirements. In this project, Areté proposes the development of a fully bio-inspired vision system for missile detection and ...

  4. Bio-inspired Sensors

    SBC: Quantum Ventura, Inc.            Topic: MDA20T003

    We are proposing to develop Neuro-IR Tracker, a system design for a bio-inspired sensor optimized to detect hypersonic missile targets. In Phase 1, we will design and assess the feasibility of a novel bio-inspired sensing system which includes Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) microbolometer imager (MMI), brain-inspired image processor and realtime software detection tools. We will estimate ...

  5. Autonomous Missile Detection Using Bio-Inspired Sensors

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: MDA20T003

    Attollo is proposing a read-out integrated circuit (ROIC), detector, and camera that will leverage a bio-inspired approach to seeing and processing a threat detection image. Processing only change detection within the Field of View (FOV) will save in transmission and processing of the sensor data reducing latency while also improving threat detection. Attollo will hybridize our Strained Layer Supe ...

  6. Rad-Hard by Design (RHD) Transistors for Space Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA20T004

    Nanoscale vacuum channel transistors (VCTs) recently attracted the attention of the microelectronics community due to their ability to operate at higher frequencies, with faster response and with higher reliability than the conventional field effect transistors (FETs). Importantly, VCTs can operate in harsh environments such as when exposed to ionizing radiation and/or subjected to high temperatur ...

  7. Compact, Transportable Racetrack Cyclotron for Heavy-Ion Radiation Testing of Electronics

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA20T005

    There is a growing need to study the effects of radiation in space and during high-altitude flights on electronic systems. The ever increasing need for ground based testing has outstripped the supply of available accelerator facilities at which to perform this testing. In response to this problem, RadiaBeam, along with collaborators at Michigan State University and Particle Accelerator Corporation ...
