  4. MEMS IMU Solutions for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: MDA15026

    Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) for flight systems (interceptors, airborne platforms, and space assets) are constrained by limits on size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). These IMUs are also exposed to severe shock and vibration during storage, transport, launch, staging, deployment and engagement. This Phase II effort will continue research from the Phase I and achieve three main objectives 1 ...

  6. 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) ...
