  1. Microelectronics Component Adhesive Selection and Design Rules for Failure Avoidance

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA14T002

    Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of stress related failure in microelectronics, which raises concerns about product reliability and specification. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a testing and physics based modeling protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditio ...

  2. Base Metal Electrode Capacitor Test Methods

    SBC: FUNDO SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T003

    Miniaturized base metal electrodes (BME) multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) are of great interest for future missile applications as designers are striving to achieve smaller, lighter, cheaper, faster and better electronic assemblies without sacrificing long-term performance. Unfortunately, screening, reliability and qualifications criteria are either not available or not standardized. In the ...

  3. Micro-Particle Debris Characterization from Hyper-Velocity Impacts

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T002

    Leveraging the results of our Phase I work, the Torch Team proposes to execute laboratory-based experiments to elucidate fundamental micro-debris formation mechanisms to improve optical modeling of impacts. Optical signatures from impacts collected over the last decade have identified definitive micro-debris parameter trends. However, current theories have difficulty reproducing these optical ob ...

  4. Novel Screen Approach to Inactivate Whole Viral Vaccines by Supralethal Irradiation

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: DTRA14B002

    Future vaccine development should focus on rapid upscale production, long-term and broad protection, and sufficient global distribution to prevent and reduce the impact of many infectious diseases and potential epidemics. Agave BioSystems proposes to develop a novel whole-microorganism vaccine inactivation strategy involving high-throughput screen of extensive radio-protectant matrices and radiati ...

  5. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  6. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: 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 ...
