  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 ...

  3. Fabrication of Ta-Hf-C-based Ultra High Temperature Composites via a

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T002

    This Phase I STTR program seeks a new fabrication method to produce stronger (>100 kpsi) and tougher (>10 MPa m1/2) ultra high temperature Ta-Hf-C-based composites (UHTC) with an outstanding oxidation resistance for use as thermal protection systems for hypersonic applications, as well as for advanced rocket nozzle throat components. UES will apply a novel "Top Down" approach to control the micro ...

  4. A Development of Ceramic YAG Fibers for High Power Laser Applications

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA09036

    In this Phase I work, UES will advance its current patented technology towards a novel ceramic process to produce high quality polycrystalline YAG fibers that meet the required properties for high power fiber laser applications. We show that YAG is far superior to silica as a material choice for fiber lasers, using a computational evaluation. UES has, over the past 5 years, developed a patented te ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Advanced Materials & Processing Technology for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: AMERICAN TECHNICAL COATINGS, INC.            Topic: MDA09007

    The objective of the proposed work is to validate the concept of an injection moldable in-situ reinforced barium alumino silicate (IRBAS) missile radome using a Hotblox pre-ceramic siloxane binder system. In Phase I, ATC will optimize formulation, mixing and molding process development. ATC will work with Lockheed Martin to develop sintering processes and to characterize the material. At the e ...
