  1. Silicon-Based Visible/Near-Infrared Affordable Missile Warning Sensor

    SBC: EDDY CO.            Topic: N03T020

    The proposed effort, in response to Office of Naval Research STTR Topic N03-T020, is to develop a prototype affordable visible/near-infrared missile warning sensor (AMWS), which uses conventional silicon based CCD technology as a detector. This sensor would ultimately form part of a Directed Infrared Counter-Measure (DIRCM) system designed to protect naval aircraft from anti-aircraft missiles. T ...

  2. High Performance Transistors on Flexible Substrates

    SBC: Nanosys            Topic: ST041005

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research Phase II project continues the successful work initiated under our Phase 1 program to develop a novel low temperature processing technology for the fabrication of low resistance ohmic source-drain contacts for high performance, nanowire transistors on low-temperature plastic substrates. In Phase I, we developed the instrument design, setup and init ...

  3. Integrated Flight Control Systems for Kinetic Kill Vehicles with Novel Internal Actuators

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA04T003

    New internal actuation technologies and integrated design of guidance-control systems for kinetic kill vehicles are proposed. These actuation technologies can be used for KKV trajectory and attitude control in any speed range, both within and outside the atmosphere. Since the actuators are contained entirely within the airframe geometric envelope, and because no mass expulsion is involved, they of ...

  4. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  5. Ion Beam Drift Compression Technology for NDCX

    SBC: FIRST POINT SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: 03a

    76144-Heavy-ion fusion requires a high current and high brightness beam, but its specifications cannot be met with the highest intensity ion sources available. Current amplification, through longitudinal compression of the beam, will be needed to achieve these specifications, and ion beam drift compression has been identified as the preferred method. However, this concept has not been demonstrat ...

  6. Multiple-Input Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) for Measuring the Carbon Content in Soil Using Inelastic Neutron Scattering

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 46d

    75574-Soil management has been suggested as a method for sequestering massive amounts of carbon, in order to mitigate the buildup of CO2 as an atmospheric greenhouse gas. In order to evaluate such schemes and document their performance, it will be necessary to quantifying changes in soil carbon stocks. However, current methods for quantifying carbon in soils (by core sampling, infra-red and LIBS ...

  8. Hadamard Transform Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF03T003

    This Phase II STTR research project is designed to further develop a mass spectrometry technology employing Hadamard Transform (HT) multiplexing techniques with the goal of developing a relatively simple, linear, rugged, HT time-of-flight (HT-TOF) mass spectrometer that offers high sensitivity and rapid mass spectra storage rates. Southwest Sciences and Stanford University will focus their effor ...

  9. Low Cost Composite Structure with Integral Radiation Shield for Hardening of EKV Electro-Optics Subsystems

    SBC: Vanguard Composites Group, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T012

    Future Exoatmospheric Interceptor Kill Vehicle (EKV) system upgrades and Kinetic Energy Interceptors (KEI) are expected to require nuclear radiation hardening of electro-optics subsystems. Lightweight, low cost, producible structural radiation shielding is needed to address this EKV and KEI nuclear radiation hardening issues. A phase I program was successfully completed to demonstrate the feasibil ...

  10. Phase I Proposal #B045-014-0221: Target Scene Resolution and Calibration Using Innovative Region Based Active Contour Techniques

    SBC: TECHFINITY, INC.            Topic: MDA04T014

    Given the stressing timelines of KEI, there is a need to quickly and accurately determine the precise location of the physical centroid of a ballistic missile hard body in order to find the desired point of intercept for the kill vehicle. During terminal homing, when the interceptor relies on its IR seeker, there are many events within the seeker field of view (FOV) that can contribute to a failur ...
