  1. Advanced 10 Kelvin Cryogenic Cooling Component Technology

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04077

    A conterflow heat exchanger operating between 6 and 70 K will be fabricated to transfer approximately 70 W between counterflowing streams of helium with an effectiveness exceeding 99.6%. The pressures of the two helium streams will be 1.4 and 1.0 atmospheres. Design specifications for the heat exchanger are as follows: i) Will sustain 30 g acceleration in any axis ii) Burst pressure of ...

  2. High toughness reaction bonded composites

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04041

    M Cubed manufactures many commercial components out of reaction bonded SiC and B4C on a large scale. The key advantages of these materials are high specific stiffness (high modulus and low density) and high thermal stability (high thermal conductivity and low CTE). However, these materials have limited toughness precluding their use in many potential applications including some missile defense com ...

  3. Innovative High-Energy Lasers for Missile Defense

    SBC: PC PHOTONICS            Topic: MDA04020

    This small business innovation research is aimed to generate tens of mJ pulse energy in a pulse width of < 10 n-sec from an air-cooled multicore fiber laser array. This laser can be packaged into a compact and light-weight enclosure that requires a minimum thermal management. PC Photonics has demonstrated coherent power-combining of a 7-core and also a 19-core Yb-doped fiber laser array embedded ...

  4. Novel Accelerator for Hydrogen Peroxide Cat Bed Start

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: MDA04076

    An internal, low power accelerator for hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) catalytic decomposition reactors can provide significant size, weight and cost reductions over traditional external heaters used to elevate the initial temperature of catalytic reactors for the Airborne Laser. Electrical power consumption could potentially be reduced several orders of magnitude by utilizing catalytic Microlithr eleme ...

  5. Li-Air Cells with Ensured Safety and Prolonged Shelf-Life Using an Oxygen Selective Membrane Cathode

    SBC: US NANOCORP, INC.            Topic: MDA04001

    High performance lightweight energy production and storage technologies are needed to supplement or service as the primary power systems for high altitude airships in order to sustain long-term flight schedules. To address MDA~{!/~}s needs, US Nanocorp proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating a Li-air battery with a special air electrode for lightweight power source application with ...

  6. Optical Sensor for Tracking and Discrimination of Multiple Targets

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04068

    In this Phase I SBIR program, Voxtel, Inc. proposes to develop a novel focal plane technology aimed at enhancing the passive and active ground-based, deep space surveillance and tracking of multiple targets in real-time. To increase the performance and functionality of tracking focal plane arrays, we have designed a monolithic, deep-depletion, SOI CMOS imager, with low noise. On-chip functions inc ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Ballistic Missile System Innovative Power Storage Devices

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA04037

    Safety concerns over the susceptibility of large Li-ion cells to thermal runaway during overcharge are one of the problems preventing the commercialization of these cells. New materials will be developed which will prevent thermal runaway and capacity fade from occurring. These will be substituted for a cell component that is believed to be involved in these processes.
