  1. Low Light Short Wave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA15022

    Current focal plane array (FPA) technologies for imaging in low-light conditions in the short wave infrared (SWIR) are limited by poor quantum efficiency and/or poor noise characteristics. To address this need, a new SWIR-sensitive linear-mode avalanche photodiode detector array, will be optimized for low-light imaging, fabricated, and demonstrated. Unlike existing SWIRavalanche photodiodes (APDs) ...

  2. Secure Protocol Unalterable Data (SPUD)

    SBC: Idaho Scientific LLC            Topic: MDA15009

    Idaho Scientific proposes to design and develop, SPUD, an irrefutable tamper logging protocol.During the course of this Phase I effort, Idaho Scientific will implement the core of the logging protocol and develop a set of unit tests designed to evaluate properties of that protocol that uphold its irrefutable claims. During a Phase II effort, Idaho Scientific would propose to encapsulate this proto ...

  3. Radiation-hardened Reconfigurable Digital Dual-band Infrared ROIC

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA15019

    A 1280 x 1024, 12-micron-pitch format radiation-hardened dual-band digital infrared readout integrated circuit (ROIC) will be developed. The features of the reconfigurable adaptive detector integrated circuit (RadIC) include: low-noise in-pixel amplifiers, in-pixel analog-to-digital conversion (ADC), extended > 22-bit dynamic range with temporal-photon flux-rate encoding, high-rate readout, and as ...

  4. 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 ...

  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 ...
