  1. Improved Iodine Injection, Mixing and Pressure Recovery

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

    The primary objective of CU Aerospace's Phase I work will be to investigate innovative iodine injection concepts for the chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) that improve mixing at higher total pressures. The designs will be made to significantly improve the pressure recovery of COIL systems while retaining efficiency. The results of the Phase I research will lay the foundation for developing a h ...

  2. Solid-State Electrically Controllable Rocket Motors For Safe Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA05069

    The invention of Electrically Controlled Extinguishable Solid Propellants (ECESP) over the last five years opens the door for completely new ways of controlling solid rocket motors. When the propellant is fitted with electrodes and a current of the required voltage is applied, the propellant ignites and continues to burn until the voltage is removed. Throttle control and multiple restarts have b ...

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

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05008

    Many advanced HgCdTe (MCT) infrared detector structures are grown by the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) technique, which is especially sensitive to small imperfections, impurities, precipitates, and polishing damage on the substrate surface. In order to achieve very high crystalline quality MCT structures, the substrate surface must be of superior quality (MBE-quality). EPIR demonstrated the ability ...

  4. PbSnTe Thermoelectric Cooled Focal Plane Arrays on Novel Silicon Based Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05009

    The MDA's request to detect, track and discriminate long range targets requires infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) that have higher sensitivities, longer cutoff wavelengths (>14 µm), larger formats (> 256 x 256), and higher operating temperatures than the current infrared technology. PbSnTe is an ideal material for the MDA's requirements. Its carrier mobilities and quantum efficiencies are comp ...

  5. Space Radiation Hardened PM Fiber

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL PHOTONICS CONSULTANTS, INC            Topic: MDA05028

    The research and development proposed herein addresses a critical deficiency existing in the space radiation survivability of high precision interferometric fber optic gyros (IFOGs), specifically the non-availability of a small diameter (80 micron), radiation hardened, polarization maintaining, optical fiber suitable for application to meet or exceed the IFOG performance goals of the space trackin ...

  6. Logistics Technology for C2BMC

    SBC: LOGOBOTS LLC            Topic: MDA05059

    C2BMC is an important component of BMDS. The logistics support tail sustainment challenges in C2BMC are related to the unusual spiral development process employed by C2BMC. Formal metrics such as MTTR and MLDT have not been defined. Nor have spare parts analysis, training needs analysis or documentation support issues been formalized. There is enormous scope for both process re-engineering and tec ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Object Recreation from Facet Representation to IGES and Primitive Representations

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: MDA05047

    Computer-aided design (CAD) modelers and signature simulation experts often must use multiple formats and types of geometric models representing the same object in order to support different applications. In the signature analysis domain, radar simulation generally requires faceted models, whereas accurate optical signature simulation requires smooth primitive-based models. Often the two models mu ...

  9. 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 proposed herein represents further refinement of an innovative tool that Infinite Global Infrastructures has recently developed internally to as ...

  10. Cerablak Technology: A New Frontier in Advanced Ceramic Materials

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This small business innovation research Phase I proposal investigates a newly discovered high temperature amorphous oxide material (Cerablak) for use in a broad range of BMDO applications. Cerablak is thermally stable and remains amorphous up to 1400 C inoxidizing environments. No other oxide material is known to exhibit this metastable behavior. Cerablak is synthesized using a patented sol-gel ...
