  3. Preconcentration Technoloogy for Infrared Analysis of Organophosphates in Water

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: I

    Organophosphates cannot currently be analyzed in the field using existing technologies, due to insufficient sensitivity of currently fielded instruments. This inability reduces the number of analyses that a government agency can perform on a water supply to ensure its safety to humans and the environment. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a novel strategy that preconcentrates org ...

  5. Combining wave effects with radiance transport for IR scene generation

    SBC: LRK Associates            Topic: MDA11001

    The identification and tracking of objects of interest to the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) depends upon detection, measurement/classification, and visualization of the radiation emitted by these objects. Since BMDS operation is strongly tied to imagery, the input of synthetic imagery that resembles operational scenarios is one way to test its functionality. It is crucial that such s ...

  6. Smart Infrared Focal Plane Arrays and Advanced Electronics

    SBC: Vega Technology & Systems Inc.            Topic: MDA11005

    We propose a smart ROIC design where one ROIC unit cell may service two FPA unit cells instead of the normal one-to-one relationship. This proposed approach, supported by Lockheed Martin, is based on a novel dual pixel design that consists of using pairs of adjacent FPA pixels connected in a differential configuration. This unique design preserves the spatial resolution of the array while enabli ...

  7. Line-Narrowed Diode Pump Sources for DPAL Systems

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA11007

    Laser diode arrays are a major component cost for advanced high-power laser systems such as the Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser, and numerous other military and industrial laser systems. The most critical design feature of diode pump arrays for Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers is the wavelength match of the absorption line and the linewidth of the pump. The linewidth required for efficient pumping of alkali l ...

  8. Reduction of surface leakage for high performance LWIR T2SL FPAs

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA11019

    High performance infrared detectors in the LWIR regime are highly needed in a number of missile defense missions. In order to image targets from long distance, it is important that imagers have high sensitivity and high resolution. This leads to technical goals of having low noise, low dark current in small size pixels in large arrays. While saturated performance levels of traditional systems base ...
