  1. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...

  2. Self-Contained Sub-Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Ref ...

  3. High Performance Nanopillar Optical Antenna Avalanche Detector Operating at 1.06um

    SBC: Illinois Applied Research Associates LLC            Topic: MDA12014

    In this Phase II SBIR program, Illinois Applied Research Associates will design, manufacture, and test a 1.06 um optimized Linear Mode (LM) avalanche photodiode (APD) array. The array will be electrically and optically characterized and will be tested for environmental and application constraints for integration into terrestrial and space based applications. The ability to operate in linear mode ...

  4. A Low-Cost, High-Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot LWIR FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: CBD13105

    The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wavelength infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) and show its feasibility when used in a camera system and a hyperspectral imaging system. Phase I results cumulated in the first-ever synthesis of photoresponsive LWIR CQDs and CQD-based photodetectors at the single device level operating at room temperat ...

  5. Top Coatings and Enhanced Cathodic Protection Capability for High-Value BMDS MDA Assets

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: MDA13T010

    American Energy Technologies Co. (a woman-owned small business concern of Arlington Heights, IL), will be joined by subcontractors University of Massachusetts (Boston, MA) and Advanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin Corp. (St. Paul, MN) in order to develop two anti-corrosion technologies with the goal to deploy them in a variety of equipment. The first technology is a top coating whic ...

  6. Multifunctional Protective Coatings for Spacecraft Surfaces

    SBC: Applied Material Systems Engineering, Inc.(AMSENG)            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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...
