  1. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...

  2. Low Light Short Wave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA15022

    Current focal plane array (FPA) technologies for imaging in low-light conditions in the short wave infrared (SWIR) are limited by poor quantum efficiency and/or poor noise characteristics. To address this need, a new SWIR-sensitive linear-mode avalanche photodiode detector array, will be optimized for low-light imaging, fabricated, and demonstrated. Unlike existing SWIRavalanche photodiodes (APDs) ...

  3. Non-Destructive Testing Method to Detect Red Plague Within an Insulated Silver-Plated Copper Conductor

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA15024

    We propose to develop a non-destructive test method to identify and quantify the formation of red plague corrosion within an insulated silver-plated copper wire. Cross-linked ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene (XL-ETFE)-insulated silver-plated copper wire demonstrates high performance and is commonly used in military and aerospace applications as hook-up and lead wire, but is prone to galvanic corrosion ...

  4. Radiation-hardened Reconfigurable Digital Dual-band Infrared ROIC

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA15019

    A 1280 x 1024, 12-micron-pitch format radiation-hardened dual-band digital infrared readout integrated circuit (ROIC) will be developed. The features of the reconfigurable adaptive detector integrated circuit (RadIC) include: low-noise in-pixel amplifiers, in-pixel analog-to-digital conversion (ADC), extended > 22-bit dynamic range with temporal-photon flux-rate encoding, high-rate readout, and as ...

  5. Top Coatings and Enhanced Cathodic Protection Capability

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: MDA13T010

    American Energy Technologies Co. (a woman-owned small business concern of Arlington Heights, IL), will be joined by subcontractorAdvanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin Corp. (St. Paul, MN) in order to develop and fully furnish functional prototypes of two anti-corrosion technologies with the goal to deploy them in a variety of MDA-owned equipment platforms. The first technology is a t ...

  6. Spectral crosstalk reduction in dual-band long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) photodetectors based on antimonide-based type-II superlattices

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: MDA15T004

    Antimonide-based Type-II superlattices (T2SL) are capable of delivering highly capable infrared detection capability. Improvement in material quality and processing techniques, as well as evolutionary modifications in device architecture have demonstrated the advantages of the material system over alternatives, and proven it as a viable candidate for the next generation infrared detection. Yet, th ...

  7. Developing/Manufacturing/Selling an Affordable Clean Burning Biomass Heating/Cooking/Lighting Integrated Stove

    SBC: ASAT, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    Biomass heating/cooking stoves in developing countries do not efficiently cook food or heat houses, while consuming too much fuel and emitting pollution resulting in respiratory illnesses, premature death, and climate change. Affordable technologies found in 1.) EPA approved heating stoves, 2.) DOE funded cooking stoves, and 3.) TEG (thermoelectric generation) lighting devices, improve heating, co ...

  8. High-End Tactical Grade Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA14019

    There is a need for tactical IMUs with better accuracy than the state of the art. We at Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) have been developing the superluminal ring laser gyroscope (SRLG) and superluminal ring laser accelerometer (SRLA). During Phase I of this program, we developed a new design that serves both functions simultaneously, a superluminal ring laser gyroscope and accelerometer (SRLGA) ...

  9. Increased Lifetime and Decreased Dark Current in Ga-Free Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) T2SL through Defect Identification and Mitigation

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA14021

    Absorber layers based on Type-II superlattices (T2SLs) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. InAs and InSb) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, quantum efficiencies from as-grown T2SL material often falls short of the design target, particularly in high-Sb, LWIR T2SL designs that should provide high absorption efficiency.There is strong evidence that these sh ...
