  2. L-(+) Lactic Acid Production from Biodiesel Waste Using Pelletized Fungal Fermentation

    SBC: Omnilane, Inc.            Topic: H

    "With the rapid growth of biodiesel industry, the production of crude glycerol as one of major biodiesel byproducts has been dramatically increased. Fully utilizing such a large quantity of crude glycerol is critical to the sustainability of biodiesel industry. Lactic acid is an important industrial chemical that is widely used as a food additive for flavoring and preservative, a moistener in co ...

  3. Lattice Matched Substrates for Mercury Cadmium Telluride growth by MBE

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05008

    In the Phase I program, EPIR Technologies successfully developed lapping, polishing, and cleaning protocols for 2 cm x 2 cm Cd0.96Zn0.04Te wafers for the molecular beam epitaxial (MBE) growth of HgCdTe. The implementation of a custom engineered EpiTEK™ crystal polishing machine in this Phase I program allowed EPIR to establish process limits for reproducibly polishing CdZnTe to MBE standards. Th ...

  4. 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 development continuation proposed herein represents further refinement of an innovative tool that MorganFranklin Corporation and its partners, A ...

  5. Passivation of Type II Superlattices for IR Sensors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA06T011

    Cheaper and higher performance infrared sensors are needed for next generation ballistic missile defense programs. Type II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering a more manufacturable and affordable focal plane array technology than the current technology, while at the same time exhibiting similar or better performance. At present, one of the m ...

  6. Improved Iodine Injection, Mixing and Pressure Recovery

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA05011

    The primary objective of CUA's Phase II work will be to investigate innovative iodine injection concepts for the COIL that improve mixing at higher total pressures, as well as perform a laser demonstration. During Phase I, CUA designed, fabricated, and tested a flexible experimental system that shows fast iodine mixing and will be used extensively in Phase II to investigate multiple concepts. Th ...

  7. PbSnSe Focal Plane Arrays on Novel Silicon Based Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05009

    EPIR Technologies Inc. will develop infrared focal plane arrays that have the potential of increased sensitivity, longer cutoff wavelengths (>14 µm), larger formats (> 256 x 256), and higher operating temperatures than the current state of the art infrared photon imaging technology. PbSnSe will be employed as the detector material since it is ideal for the MDA’s requirements due to its toleranc ...

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

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    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 fluorescence inst ...

  9. Multiband Infrared (IR) Seeker

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA06016

    A major issue that inhibits the performance of current long wavelength infrared (LWIR) focal plane arrays (FPAs) in THAAD seekers is the residual non-uniformity (RNU). This non-uniformity (larger that 0.2% in FPAs fabricated with the current technology) leads to major restrictions on FPA integration times and optics temperatures. We propose to design and develop a 640x512 two-color mid-wavelength ...

  10. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA06054

    MDA is developing deployable airborne systems such as the Airborne Laser (ABL) for boost-phase missile defense. The ABL’s mission would significantly benefit from enhanced target detection and ranging capabilities. We propose an active sensing system compatible with ABL that is based on HgCdTe avalanche photodiodes (APDs), which are an attractive choice for active sensing applications because t ...
