  1. Auto-Correcting Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04130

    Department of Defense space surveillance and weapons systems require highly accurate inertial knowledge in absolute location and orientation. Current technologies providing these functions are not integrated into a single, light-weight, low-cost, power-efficient, and drift-free instrument. Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to further develop its innovative Auto-correcting Inertial Measu ...

  2. Multifunctional Protective Coatings for Spacecraft Surfaces

    SBC: APPLIED MATERIAL SYSTEMS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA05T019

    The purpose of this STTR phase II proposal is to scale up and validate various space materials product forms based on material technology concepts proven feasible in STTR phase I efforts. The STTR phase I has successfully demonstrated low cost survivable multifunctional engineered material systems: Zinc-Assisted Self-Assembled Nano-Clusters (Z-SANCs™) and Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO) syst ...

  3. Low-Cost, High-Power Transmit/Receive Modules for X-band Radars

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA05T012

    In this STTR Phase II project Vega Wave Systems, Inc. will develop a new type of InGaP-GaAs heterojunction bipolar transistors for integrated X-band radar transmit/receive modules. The Phase II objective is a new device design in order to achieve high device performance suitable for both power amplifier and low-noise amplifier X-band radar applications in a common heterostructure. The design is ex ...

  4. Low Cost, High Performance Inertial Rate Sensors- Airborne

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04181

    ATA proposes development of an Advanced Rate Gyro (ARG) that blends two of ATA’s developmental designs to fulfill MDA’s airborne gyroscope requirements. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) requires such high performance gyros for Advanced Inertial Reference Units (aIRUs) for Airborne Laser DE systems and space-based surveillance and weapons systems. Current high performance gyros are marginal in mee ...

  5. High Bandwidth Fast Steering Mirror

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04109

    As the Airborne Laser (ABL) comes closer to directing a high energy laser (HEL) at a boosting missile target, it is essential that higher bandwidth fast steering mirrors (FSMs) need to be developed. These FSMs must be capable of controlling large 12-inch mirrors while handling the HEL power levels. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that a FSM mechanism (substrate and mounting structure) can be designe ...

  6. Type II Superlattices on Silicon for Infrared Photodetectors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA04038

    High performance infrared detectors are highly needed for next generation ballistic missile defense missions. Type II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering a more affordable and producible focal plane array (FPA) technology than the current technology, while at the same time exhibiting similar or better performance. Two of the major challenges ...

  7. Type II InAs/GaSb Superlattices on GaAs for Infrared Photodetectors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA04053

    Cheaper and higher performance infrared detectors in the mid and long wavelength infrared (MWIR and LWIR) spectral bands 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 affordable and producible focal plane array (FPA) technology than the current technology, while at the sa ...

  8. Strained Layer Superlattice Using HgTe for VLWIR Detection

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA04082

    Despite considerable progress with bulk HgCdTe photovoltaic technology, difficulties persist in sensing wavelengths longer than 12 microns with bulk alloy material due to the limitations imposed by high Auger recombination rates and large tunneling dark currents. Strained layer superlattices using HgTe layers and lattice mismatched layers based on ZnTe alloys are an extremely promising alternative ...

  9. Automated Wafer Polishing for Epi-ready Antimony-based Substrate Materials

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA04083

    EPIR Technologies demonstrated in Phase I of this project the ability to polish small GaSb wafers to an epi-ready state. Surfaces smoother than those of typical wafers sold by the best supplier of GaSb substrates for SL growth were obtained. In Phase II, we propose to build upon the experience gained in Phase I to establish a more automated polishing procedure to consistently obtain even smoothe ...

  10. 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 ...
