  1. Space Qualifiable Laser Technology

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: MDA04005

    The MDA and other elements of the Department of Defense (DoD) have multiple applications for high power laser sources, including deployment in space where power, size, weight and refueling logistics are issues. Applications include acquisition and identification of missiles or other threats, tracking and destruction of such threats, decoy rejection, and defeat of enemy electro-optic sensors. Hig ...

  2. Novel and Cost Effective Rain Erosion Tests at Supersonic Speeds

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: BMDO02012

    In Phase I, a demonstration SUpersonic Rain Erosion (SURE) facility was developed which demonstrated the capability of producing spherical, millimeter-sized droplets repeatedly at velocities up to 1200 feet per second. Data were collected to extend the speed range of the facility and droplet size. Based on these results, a Phase II prototype facility will be built that could attain speeds of 240 ...

  3. An advanced hyperspectral imaging system for target discrimination

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA04061

    The field of hyperspectral imaging has undergone tremendous development in the past decade. Research and development of the hyperspectral imaging in military applications has primarily focused on air-to-ground and space-to-ground reconnaissance of stationary military targets and terrestrial backgrounds. In this SBIR program, researchers of Dymas Research propose an innovative hyperspectral imaging ...

  4. Compact Array of Analog Modulators and Integrated Laser Source (CAAMILS) Module

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: MDA04029

    EOSPACE proposes to develop a Compact Array of Analog Modulators and Integrated Laser Source (CAAMILS) module for use in a wide-bandwidth analog ladar scene projection system. Under Phase I, EOSPACE will use its unique, exceptionally low loss, lithium niobate (LiNbO3) integrated electro-optic waveguide technology to fabricate a practical and cost-effective, yet state-of-the-art, ultra-low-loss, h ...

  5. Consolidated High Density and High Energy Density Nanocomposites Produced by Arrested Reactive Milling

    SBC: EXOTHERM CORP.            Topic: MDA04017

    Highly reactive nanocomposite powders will be consolidated into solid shapes suitable for use as structural components of munitions. Nanostructured, reactive composites of intermetallic or thermite compositions have been prepared recently by Arrested Reactive Milling (ARM). Specific materials prepared previously include compositions in the systems Al-Fe2O3, Al-MoO3, and B-Ti. The prepared nanoco ...

  6. Novel Infrared Point Sources

    SBC: FORUN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04030

    There is a need for broadband infrared light source for simulation projection systems operating at room temperature. We are proposing to develop tunable quantum cascade infrared light emitters based on III-V nitride semiconductors. During Phase I, the proposed emitter will be designed and fabricated. Electro-luminescence in the infrared will be measured at room temperature and low temperatures. In ...

  7. Materials and Processes for Bulk Antimony-based Substrate Materials

    SBC: GALAXY COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: MDA04083

    GaSb substrates are attractive for higher temperature infrared detectors for space-based and stealth applications. However, substrate inconsistency inhibits their widespread commercial application. In particular, producing damage-free GaSb surfaces and sub-surfaces with an easily desorbed oxide for epi-growth is difficult. Recently, bromine ion-beam assisted etching (Br-IBAE) was effective in remo ...

  8. Advanced Scene Generation Techniques

    SBC: KINETICS, INC.            Topic: MDA03003

    Ballistic missile boost phase transients occurring at launch, during flight, and immediately after shutdown generates distinct observable features that can help as well as hinder the defense against these systems. On the positive side, these features provide important intelligence information showing system operational mechanisms and timelines critical for launch detection, system identification, ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Dynamic Spectral Filtering Techniques

    SBC: NANOOPTO CORP.            Topic: MDA04079

    NanoOpto proposes to combine novel nano-structured materials with liquid crystal actuators in an extension of resonant grating filter theory to design a highly compact, high performance, easily manufactured, dynamic spectral filter. The theoretical breakthrough is twofold: first, in the use of nano-scale gratings in the filter design - this allows significantly and continuously modify material pr ...
