  1. Non Destructive Examination of Solid Rocket Motor Propellant Using Induced Positron Technology

    SBC: POSITRON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Failure of solid rocket motor propellants due to structural or chemical breakdown from either manufacturing or aging effects can result in potential failure of the rocket and significant maintenance requirements. Defects in rocket propellants are asignificant issue particularly for new propellants, which may suffer from short experiential histories, frequently unknown lifecycle parameters and the ...

  2. Multi-Modal LWIR/VLWIR Focal Plane Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to optimize the design of a highly versatile active/passive multi-color focal plane array (FPA). The device integrates, within a single pixel, both avalanche photodiode (APD) and two-color LWIR/VLWIR sensing capabilities. The design is based onwell proven HgCdTe heterostructure techniques and manufacturing methods.In Phase I, we will investigate both two-terminal and three-terminal, bac ...

  3. 3-D LADAR Polarimeter

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Polarization will increasingly be an important tool in ballistic missile defense. However, in practice, implementing a robust polarimetric system necessitates addressing a number of complex issues and challenges. Furthermore, polarimetric systems,traditionally have relied on spatial or sequential scanning mechanisms to record the multi-dimensional datacube. Due to spatial and/or temporal aliasing, ...

  4. Radiation Hard, Stacked LADAR Circuits

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To engender future developments in space-based ladar systems, innovative approaches to realizing high-density, radiation-hard readout integration circuits (ROIC) are required. The object of this proposed effort is to support space-based ladar sensingsystems by developing a radiation hard, high-performance, ladar ROIC based on wafer-stacked, rad-hard, SOI CMOS integrated circuits that achieve high- ...

  5. High Reliability, Radiation Hard, Electron Bombarded SOI CMOS Image Tubes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Electron-bombarded sensors have been researched for over thirty years and the general theory of operation has been proven and prototype devices demonstrated. However thus far, they have yet to be manufactured in a cost effective manner with optimizedperformance characteristics. Furthermore, the state of the art EBCCD device has no proven reliability.In this Phase I program, we propose to develop a ...

  6. Rad Hard, Back-illuminated, SOI CMOS Star Tracker

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To satisfy the demand for a reliable, high sensitivity, radiation hardened imager for space vehicle navigation star tracking tasks, we will design, simulate and optimize a radiation hard, silicon-on-insulator (SOI), fully-depleted, back-illuminatedstartracking sensor with enhanced sensitivity and centroiding capability. The device is unique in its performance and its radiation hardness. Radiation ...

  7. High-Performance Geiger Mode 1.06 micron APD Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional InGaAs/InP based APDs have very poor multiplication noise performance. While InGaAs is an excellent infrared absorber, it is a poor signal multiplier. InGaAs/InP APD devices also exhibit poor dark current and afterpulsing characteristics,which result in false signals and makes their utility for Geiger mode detection problematic. In contrast, silicon is an excellent multiplier, but unf ...

  8. Active/Passive Two-color Infrared Focal Plane

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will optimize the design of a monolithic, highly-integrated, active/passive, two-color infrared detector capable of S/MWIR avalanche photodetection, (S)MWIR passive photodetection, or LWIR passive photodetection. The structure is constructed usingback-to-back photodiodes (one designed for unity gain or avalanche operation) manufactured with well-established, band-engineered HgCdTe heterostructu ...
