  1. An InGaAs FPA for Multiple Purpose Imaging from the Visible through the Short Wave Infrared

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: MDA03073

    We will design, develop, and deliver a 128x128 pixel indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) focal plane array (FPA) camera that satisfies or exceeds all of the technical requirements of this solicitation. The use of a substrate-removed InGaAs photodiode array will exhibit high quantum efficiency from 0.4 µm through 1.7 mm. The camera will thus be usable both for visible imaging and for the imaging of ...

  2. Very Low Absorption Interference Coatings for 1.0 to 1.3 Micron Laser Optics


    This SBIR project is aimed at the development of very low absorption optical coatings, for components used in the Airborne Laser (ABL) missile defense system. We are developing a novel thin film deposition technology, based on remote plasma enhanced metal organic chemical vapor deposition (RPE-MOCVD). This technology is capable of producing oxide coatings with exceptional purity, excellent oxyge ...

  4. Missile Plume Radar Attenuation and Cross Section

    SBC: Propulsion Science & Technology Inc            Topic: MDA03078

    This program will develop a modern simulation tool to predict RF interactions (attenuation, diffraction, reflection, Doppler and backscatter) with missile exhaust plumes. The tool will be based, in part, on methodologies contained with the currently available PARCS(Plume Attenuated Cross Section) code. PARCS will be upgraded and reconfigured to include a Maxwell's equation solver. A number of li ...

  5. High-Performance Geiger Mode 1.06 micron APD Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA03088

    In this Phase II SBIR program, Voxtel will design, manufacture, and test a 32 by 32 element, 30-micron pitch, 1064-nm optimized Geiger Mode (GM) avalanche photodiode (APD) array. The array will be electrically and optically characterized and will be tested for total dose radiation performance. The innovation is significant in that there currently are no APD/ROIC focal plane assemblies that have a ...

  8. Fully Integrated, Multiport, Planar-Waveguide Spectral Comparators and Multiplexers Based on Lithographic Holography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: BMDO02011

    Photonic devices providing high performance spectral filtering, multiplexing, optical waveform processing, and signal routing will be designed, fabricated, and characterized. The devices are based on photolithographic scribing of holographic structures onto the surface of planar waveguides and operate on intra-guide signals. The holographic structures provide a manufacturable approach to 2D phot ...
