  1. Passivation of Type II Superlattices for VLWIR Sensors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA06T011

    Very long wavelength infrared (VLWIR) detectors are highly needed for midcourse phase missile defense. Blocked impurity band detectors are capable of sensing at these wavelengths but require extremely low temperatures, in the 10K or less range. The InAs/GaSb Type II heterostructure system offers unique design flexibility for new innovative detectors. By incorporating dark current reduction techniq ...

  2. AlGaN/GaN HFETs on Silicon for BMDS X-Band Radars

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: MDA06T012

    In this program, we will combine commercially available AlGaN/GaN on Si FETs with short gates such that the high frequency performance (X-band and higher) can be significantly increased. The AlGaN/GaN material system has significant advantages over the incumbent technology for X-band applications; specifically, AlGaN/GaN FETs have much higher power density which translates into broader bandwidth. ...

  3. Global Visibility Command and Control Logistics Technology for BMDS System

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: MDA05059

    Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) maintenance costs are high, making up as much as 60-70% of the total system life-cycle cost. Moreover, inefficient maintenance policies and procedures can have adverse national security ramifications. We propose a Global visibility and Central Command approach to meet the maintenance and inventory management challenges. The proposed system consists of thre ...

  4. Manufacturing Process for Semi-insulating 4" Diameter GaN Substrates

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA05019

    Large area semi-insulating GaN has the potential to impact the commercialization of many technologies such as power transistors, high frequency microwave amplifiers, and high-speed, high-power switching components. One of the limiting factors in many of these applications is the lack of commercially available large diameter substrates. This program will develop 4" diameter semi-insulating GaN su ...

  5. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  6. PbSnTe Thermoelectric Cooled Focal Plane Arrays on Novel Silicon Based Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05009

    The MDA's request to detect, track and discriminate long range targets requires infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) that have higher sensitivities, longer cutoff wavelengths (>14 µm), larger formats (> 256 x 256), and higher operating temperatures than the current infrared technology. PbSnTe is an ideal material for the MDA's requirements. Its carrier mobilities and quantum efficiencies are comp ...

  7. High Electrical Efficiency GaN FETs for Innovative Radar/RF Sensors

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA05035

    Improving efficiency and reliability of GaN-based FETs is paramount in enabling system insertion, both of which are limited by thermal effects and self heating in the devices. One factor limiting high voltage and high efficiency operation of GaN HEMTs is leakage current between the gate and drain at high drain bias. Pure screw dislocations arising from the lattice mismatch at the SiC substrate and ...

  8. Innovative Radar System Concepts and Architectures

    SBC: Opteos, Inc.            Topic: MDA05034

    The goal of this SBIR project is the development of a fiber-coupled diagnostic system for the comprehensive Tx/Rx-mode calibration and performance-monitoring of large-scale phased antenna arrays. In the proposed calibration system, innovative electro-optic (EO) field sensors will monitor near-field amplitude and phase emanating from the array under observation during Tx-mode calibration, while com ...

  9. Missile Communication Alternatives and Trades

    SBC: INTELLIGENT DESIGNS LLC            Topic: MDA05065

    End-to-end communications systems are often so complex that system designers have difficulty keeping track of the constraints, trades, interface requirements, and interdependencies among components. The Communications System Taxonomy (CommTax) and Toolkit proposed herein represents further refinement of an innovative tool that Infinite Global Infrastructures has recently developed internally to as ...

  10. Logistics Technology for C2BMC

    SBC: LOGOBOTS LLC            Topic: MDA05059

    C2BMC is an important component of BMDS. The logistics support tail sustainment challenges in C2BMC are related to the unusual spiral development process employed by C2BMC. Formal metrics such as MTTR and MLDT have not been defined. Nor have spare parts analysis, training needs analysis or documentation support issues been formalized. There is enormous scope for both process re-engineering and tec ...
