  1. Lightweight hardware design for regenerative fuel cells

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: MDA03100

    Practical use of a RFC for solar powered winged aircraft and lighter-than-air craft has been limited due to weight constraints and the paucity of test data from and practical experience with closed loop RFC hardware. The lightweight cells and endplates developed in Phase I of this program will be applied to the practical implementation of a closed-loop regenerative fuel cell. This RFC will build ...

  2. 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 ...

  6. Direct Casting of Er-Alloys for High-performance Cryocooler Regenerators

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA02031

    The goal of this program is to develop manufacturing technologies/methods that will allow for the fabrication of advanced regenerators made from erbium-based, intermetallic compounds for application in space-based cryocoolers. These regenerators, when used as a replacement for Pb-powder regenerators, will result in an increase in efficiency of cryocoolers by a factor of 3-4. When used as a repla ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Innovative Techniques for Missile Defense

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04020

    Voxtel, Inc. proposes to optimize the design of a 1.00-µm to 1.55-µm near infrared (NIR) linear mode (LM)HgCdTe avalanche photodiode (APD) array that achieves high gain with nearly no excess noise, so as to achieve high bandwidth (e.g. > 1 GHz) single photon counting laser radar (LADAR) operation. Leveraging the low noise LM avalanche gain and our low noise CMOS LADAR receiver circuitry, we wil ...
