  1. Development of Advanced Barrier Device for Smart IR FPA Space Applications

    SBC: INTELLIEPI IR, INC            Topic: MDA09014

    This Phase II SBIR effort will develop high performance infrared detector arrays for MDA space applications using advanced barrier structure type-II superlattices based on GaSb. The epitaxy development will increase performance (QE, low dark current) with design iterations of NRL hybrid superlattice barrier structures for single-color large-format LWIR and two-color FPA.

  2. 640x512 Dualband Longwave/Longwave Infrared SLS FPA For Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA10012

    In Phase I we developed a novel infrared photodiode based on Type-II InAs/GaSb strained layer superlattices (SLS) that showed pingpong dualband action, wherein the spectral response of the diode was switched between extended midwave (~ 8 micron cutoff) and longwave (~ 10 micron cutoff) infrared by the polarity of the voltage bias applied across it. In Phase II we will improve quantum efficiency i ...

  3. Optimized Thermal Battery for Weight- and Size-Constrained Applications

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA10018

    Thermal batteries are a power source for most MDA weapons systems. Some of these applications place severe constraints on battery weight and size. The key components of thermal batteries are typically made by hydraulically pressing powders into"pellets". The pellets must be greater than a minimum thickness to avoid breakage, and for batteries that must supply high current for a short time this ...

  4. Wavelength Stabilized High-Power Diode Lasers for Alkali Atom Pumping

    SBC: Photodigm, Inc.            Topic: MDA10007

    This Phase II SBIR proposal is submitted to address the need for high-power narrow spectral linewidth diode laser pump sources in alkali vapor lasers. Diode-pumped alkali vapor lasers (DPALs) can be most efficiently pumped with spectrally-stabilized laser diode arrays (LDAs) with very narrow linewidths (a few GHz). This allows DPAL operation at lower pressure and increased efficiency due to opti ...

  5. Ultrahigh Temperature Materials for Missile Defense Propulsion and Aerothermal Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA09T002

    The notional performance parameters and kinematic requirements for the SM3 Blk IIB mission would benefit from the availability of advanced materials manufacturing methods that could enhance the technical properties and lower the cost of TDACS components. This Phase 2 STTR proposal addresses the requirement to significantly improve the affordability and performance of ultrahigh temperature capable ...

  6. Central Anti-Tamper Engine (CATE)

    SBC: QUICKFLEX INC.            Topic: MDA08043

    Modern sensor technology is capable of detecting miniscule changes in an operating environment, and providing a vast supply of precise data regarding potential causes for alarm. Unfortunately, since many tamper-detection responses involve disabling critical program information, the system designer must establish thresholds that are either set loose enough to not provide an adequate level of secur ...

  7. Microelectrochemical Capillary System for Environmental Analytical Lab on a Chip

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C

    As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency develops and promotes innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promotes environmental stewardship. Testing and characterization of the environment for potentially harmful contaminants is a costly endeavor. Current technolo ...
