  1. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    The applicant will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will ve entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and ha ...

  2. Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA10001

    MDA seeks to maximize the utility of collected sensor data through a fusion architecture that provides an integrated view of the battlespace. IAVO proposes research and development of a fusion architecture, which employs novel algorithmic techniques using a foundation of sound stochastic theory, probabilistic inference methodologies and pattern recognition techniques to develop the iView2TM (Integ ...

  3. Terahertz Signature Modeling for Kill Assessment and Warhead Materials Identification

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: MDA09034

    Our Phase I study provided quantitative results that showed feasibility for scenarios of interest. It included both the details of signatures and the sensitivity for THz sensor systems with realistic parameters. In Phase II we will extend these results to create a non-scenario specific model that will serve as an interface with the intercept community allowing the capabilities of the THz to be o ...

  4. Hypervelocity Intercept Modeling with First-Principle, Physics-Based Tools

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA07019

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has become more reliant on First Principles Model and Simulation to assess the effectiveness of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). This is due in part to the continued growth in cost and schedule for ground based testing program that have traditionally been used for such assessments. Results from the Phase I SBIR, MDA-073-019 SBIR, Hypervelocity Interce ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Radiation Hard, High Precision, Agile Star Tracker

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA05030

    In this program, Voxtel will demonstrate SOI-CMOS imagers for high-performance star tracking applications. Fabricating CMOS imagers on SOI wafers, allows the device and detector layers to be separated with an insulating layer, so each can be individually optimized and operated with separate ground returns. High QE and high MTF come from backside illumination and depleting the entire volume of dete ...

  8. Uncooled, Long-Life Wavefront/Tracking Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04105

    A highly reliable InAlAs/InGaAs avalanche photodiode (APD) focal plane array (FPA) will be developed to replace the electron-bombarded charge-coupled device (EBCCD) camera presently used for Airborne Laser (ABL) wavefront sensing applications. Based on technology with a nominal lifetime of 105 hours of continuous operation, Voxtel’s monolithic solid-state architecture is both more manufacturable ...

  9. Unstructured Fixed Grid with Moving Body, Navier-Stokes Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Solver for Simulating Gas Flows

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA04136

    In this PhaseII SBIR effort, Corvid Technologies completes the development of an innovative approach for solving Unstructured Fixed Grid Navier-Stokes CFD flow simulations. The proposed approach developed at Corvid is referred to as the Virtual Geometry Insertion (VGI) technique. This approach allows for the virtual insertion of arbitrary geometric components into a standard CFD analysis. This g ...
