  1. Plasma Limiter: RF Mitigation Device for Operation in Stressing Environments


    The widespread use of communication devices and radar systems has made our society increasingly vulnerable to disruptive, high-power, short pulse electromagnetic interference (EMI) and high power microwaves (HPM). Significant advances in devices that produce these high-power, short pulses have been made in the US and abroad in the past few decades. As a result, the need for devices that can protec ...

  2. Quantitative Strain Imaging Using Fiber Grating Sensors for Composite Rocket Parts

    SBC: BLUE ROAD RESEARCH            Topic: MDA04111

    Multi-axis fiber grating strain sensors may be used to localize and qualitatively identify the degree of damage in composite parts. Signatures associated with delaminations and damage tow material are significantly different for strain imaging produced data. This Phase I project is directed toward improving the quantitative measurement capability of "strain imaging" methods through experiments, ...

  3. Variable Resolution Modeling for Distributed Battle Management

    SBC: CLEVERSET, INC.            Topic: MDA04156

    Missile defense battle management is an inherently distributed process, involving sensors, weapons, and targets that are distributed over a region spanning thousands of miles. While most agents need some sense of "distant events", they neither need nor can afford detailed, high-fidelity models of the entire situation. CleverSet's approach to distributed battle management is based in variable reso ...

  4. Innovative Use of Surface Coatings to Reduce Exposure to Beryllium in the Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle Supply Chain

    SBC: PRSM CORP.            Topic: MDA04094

    The technical objective of this proposal is to determine if innovative applications of temporary and/or permanent surface coatings could reduce or eliminate the potential for beryllium (Be) exposure in some segments of the ballistic missile manufacturing supply chain. A unique team of supply chain managers, materials scientists and industrial hygienists from PrSM Corporation and the Colorado Schoo ...

  5. Uncooled, Long-Life Wavefront/Tracking Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04105

    The feasibility of using AlGaInAs avalanche photodiodes (APDs) operated in linear mode as high-frame- rate solid state wavefront and tracking sensor elements capable of detecting single photons will be established. The small contrast between electron and hole ionization coefficients in common III-V compound semiconductors like AlGaInAs would normally prohibit their use in photon-counting APDs owin ...

  6. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...
