  3. Low Light Short Wave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA15022

    Current focal plane array (FPA) technologies for imaging in low-light conditions in the short wave infrared (SWIR) are limited by poor quantum efficiency and/or poor noise characteristics. To address this need, a new SWIR-sensitive linear-mode avalanche photodiode detector array, will be optimized for low-light imaging, fabricated, and demonstrated. Unlike existing SWIRavalanche photodiodes (APDs) ...

  7. Protein Qspec: An Improved Method for Rapid Characterization of Protein Aggregates in Biologic Drugs for Increased Quality and Safety

    SBC: OPTOFLUIDICS, INC.            Topic: 90201

    Optofluidics will develop Protein Qspec, a new particle analysis QC instrument designed to characterize protein aggregates in biologic drugs. The primary concern for this class of therapeutics is that they can elicit an immune response from patients who develop anti-drug antibodies which can eliminate the therapeutic benefit. The presence of particulate matter, in these therapeutics (e.g. shed gla ...

  8. Dual Band Long-Wave Infrared p-type InAs/(In)GaSb Superlattice Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: SK Infrared, LLC            Topic: MDA10012

    The objective of the overall STTR program is to develop a high performance mid-format dual band long wave infrared (IR) focal plane array (FPA) using p-type InAs/(In)GaSb strained layer superlattices (SLS). The project consists of three primary research thrusts including (1) improvement of quantum efficiency, (2) optimized sidewall passivation, and (3) focal plane array fabrication and testing. ...

  10. Radio Frequency (RF) Field Sensor for Integrated Circuits (IC)

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA14007

    Weapons systems managed by the MDA including the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) rely upon the integrity and security of complex Integrated Circuits (ICs) to control their functionality. Adversarial side-channel attacks to ICs greatly compromise this functionality as well as the security of Critical Program Information (CPI) stored in these ICs.Nokomis has definitively demonstrated that mo ...
