  1. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (<23 pF), and high bandwidth (>125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise ...

  2. High Rate Single Photon Sensitive Coded LADAR Receiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA09038

    There is a need for a high-resolution two-dimensional focal plane array (FPA) with single photon sensitivity (SPS), pulse amplitude storage, and GHz bit rates that can record both the time (with 10 bits) from multiple returns from a single laser pulse. Such a system has the potential to significantly reduce LADAR size, weight, and power (SWAP) by alleviating the laser requirements. In this program ...

  3. Large-Format Dual-Use Radiation-Hard ROIC for IRFPAs and Star-Trackers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA09014

    New, modular radiation hard [>300 kRad (Si)] ROIC designs are required to address the needs of planned ballistic missile defense system. Anticipating the needs for large formats, small pixel sizes, and multiple spectral bands, the features of an existing radiation-hard space imager ROIC will be used to develop the design of an extensible 1024 × 1024, 15-μm pixel ROIC design. The design includes ...

  4. Non-Avalanche Gain Detector for High-Resolution Single-Photon and Dual Mode Applications

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA09002

    Future seekers of the future will need to allow for multiple targets and various advanced countermeasures, likely including a dual-mode component to do so. A Dual Mode Seeker (DMS) has at least an infrared (IR) Focal Plane Array (FPA) as well as an active means to capture target range and preferably 3-D imagery. Future technology insertion will benefit from a monolithic dual mode focal plane, wher ...

  5. Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA08002

    A 128 x 128-format avalanche photodiode (APD) focal plane array (FPA), including a low-power dual-mode readout integrated circuit (ROIC) and low excess noise, high gain (M>1,200) will be developed for laser radar (LADAR) applications requiring reduced SWAP. The FPA gives LADAR seekers an advanced active tracking sensor capability, providing a sufficiently wide field of regard (FOR) to eliminate th ...

  6. Next-Generation Detector and Imager Development

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: 44d

    Improvements in silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology have resulted in development of monolithic chip designs for radiation image sensors and particle detectors by facilitating the use of the handle silicon layer for the detectors and the SOI layer for the readout circuits. Unfortunately, even the most advanced SOI-based imagers are still limited in effectiveness due to threshold (Vt) shifts when ...

  7. Grid 2.0: Collaboration and Sharing on the Grid

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: 54c

    Grid computing, the application of many loosely-coupled computers in federation to provide shared resources makes significant compute or storage capabilities accessible to distributed teams of researchers. In doing so, it also poses a challenge: How do distributed teams collaborate effectively with these resources? This project will determine how best to apply social and collaboration software ...

  8. Improved Symbol Resolution for Portable Build Systems

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: 41e

    Modern High Performance Computing utilizes a variety of different hardware and software platforms. These differences make it difficult to develop reusable components, which lead to a significant decrease of productivity. Our goal is to investigate the design of portable build systems that are simple, yet sufficiently robust with respect to symbol resolution, so that they are able to adapt and buil ...

  9. A Deployable, Robust File System for Parallel I/O

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: 41d

    When considering high-performance parallel computers, it is easy to overlook the importance of disk storage. In this proposal, we seek to address the topic of disk storage for parallel computers, and create a deployable, robust file system that will reduce downtime due to faults and increase productivity through improved system performance. For this project, Galois will take a synthesis approach, ...

  10. Recovery Act- Controller for Charging/Storage System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 07b

    Pluggable EVs will represent a substantial electrical load that must be served when most advantageous in terms of price and grid stress. However, PEVs can also become a resource themselves if the battery storage can be used to support the grid or the customer
