  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  2. Unipolar nBn HgCdTe on Silicon for High Performance, Low Cost NIR/SWIR Imagers

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: SOCOM12002

    We propose the development of a near infrared/shortwave infrared (NIR/SWIR) sensor based on mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) in an n-type/barrier/n-type (nBn) architecture, designed for room-temperature operation in the 0.7 to 2.8µm NIR/SWIR spectral range. The sensor will compete as a low cost/high performance alternative to near infrared indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs)-based cameras by prov ...

  3. Low Dark Current, Extended Wavelength SWIR Sensors Using Hydrogenated nBn InGaAs

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: SOCOM12002

    Improved performance SWIR sensors with extended wavelength response to 2.5 microns will be developed using two disruptive technologies with which Amethyst has demonstrated success: nBn detector structures and defect passivation via hydrogenation. Similar to conventional extended wavelength photodiodes, the improved sensors will based on mismatched InGaAs grown on graded buffer layers on InP substr ...

  4. Universal Longwire Antenna Module for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06003

    A longwire antenna module is proposed, incorporating a length reduction technique that yields 25-75% length reduction with minimal impact on gain. A resonant monopole antenna operating at 535kHz is approximately 440ft long; length reduction techniques will reduce this to between 69ft and 134ft depending upon the desired gain. A shorter/lighter longwire antenna will allow the aircraft to be more ...

  5. Conformal Appliqué Antennas for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06002

    An antenna system is proposed for the purpose of FM, TV-VHF, and TV-UHF PSYPOS broadcast applications. The antenna system incorporates a radiating structure that is small, light weight, and conformal. A circularly polarized beam is broadcast from an aircraft towards nadir, illuminating the region below the craft with a horizontally-polarized signal, yielding polarizations pointing in both the No ...

  6. Composite, Stuff-Proof Windshield and Lightweight Pilothouse Assembly

    SBC: PACKER TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL (FORME            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR Program, K+P Agile will develop a high strength, lightweight, modular, composite windshield structure for the MK V Special Operations Craft (SOC) that will not fail when the craft passes through a wave (or
