  2. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  3. Real-time Atmospheric Disturbance Compensation Using Hardware-Accelerated Speckle Imaging

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA06T006

    Atmospheric disturbances are a major performance-limiting factor in long-range optical systems. In particular, for the Airborne Laser (ABL) the ability of distinguish targets from a long distance is crucial for mission success. Despite the progress in optics and sensor technology, blurring in long-range imaging caused by atmospheric movements and density changes will remain an issue. Digital si ...

  4. High Electrical Efficiency GaN FETs for Innovative Radar/RF Sensors

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA05035

    Improving efficiency and reliability of GaN-based FETs is paramount in enabling system insertion, both of which are limited by thermal effects and self heating in the devices. One factor limiting high voltage and high efficiency operation of GaN HEMTs is leakage current between the gate and drain at high drain bias. Pure screw dislocations arising from the lattice mismatch at the SiC substrate and ...

  5. Manufacturing Process for Semi-insulating 4" Diameter GaN Substrates

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA05019

    Large area semi-insulating GaN has the potential to impact the commercialization of many technologies such as power transistors, high frequency microwave amplifiers, and high-speed, high-power switching components. One of the limiting factors in many of these applications is the lack of commercially available large diameter substrates. This program will develop 4" diameter semi-insulating GaN su ...

  6. AlGaN/GaN HFETs on Silicon for BMDS X-Band Radars

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: MDA06T012

    In this program, we will combine commercially available AlGaN/GaN on Si FETs with short gates such that the high frequency performance (X-band and higher) can be significantly increased. The AlGaN/GaN material system has significant advantages over the incumbent technology for X-band applications; specifically, AlGaN/GaN FETs have much higher power density which translates into broader bandwidth. ...

  7. Radiation Hard, High Precision, Agile Star Tracker

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA05030

    In this program, Voxtel will demonstrate SOI-CMOS imagers for high-performance star tracking applications. Fabricating CMOS imagers on SOI wafers, allows the device and detector layers to be separated with an insulating layer, so each can be individually optimized and operated with separate ground returns. High QE and high MTF come from backside illumination and depleting the entire volume of dete ...

  8. Uncooled, Long-Life Wavefront/Tracking Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04105

    A highly reliable InAlAs/InGaAs avalanche photodiode (APD) focal plane array (FPA) will be developed to replace the electron-bombarded charge-coupled device (EBCCD) camera presently used for Airborne Laser (ABL) wavefront sensing applications. Based on technology with a nominal lifetime of 105 hours of continuous operation, Voxtel’s monolithic solid-state architecture is both more manufacturable ...

  9. Unstructured Fixed Grid with Moving Body, Navier-Stokes Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Solver for Simulating Gas Flows

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA04136

    In this PhaseII SBIR effort, Corvid Technologies completes the development of an innovative approach for solving Unstructured Fixed Grid Navier-Stokes CFD flow simulations. The proposed approach developed at Corvid is referred to as the Virtual Geometry Insertion (VGI) technique. This approach allows for the virtual insertion of arbitrary geometric components into a standard CFD analysis. This g ...

  10. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...
