  2. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements.  These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class 5 flood resis ...

  4. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  5. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  6. Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA07015

    The objective of this Phase II proposal is to build a solid-state all-electronic beam steering system designed for laser radar (LADAR) beam steering. The system will employ two primary components: 1) a high performance electro-optic (EO) device to steer a laser beam and 2) a passive “superprism” that amplifies the EO steering angle. The superprism is a breakthrough technology that uses a phot ...

  7. Test Methodology and Equipment for Radiation Hardened Interceptors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA08009

    ASI, teamed with GH Systems, proposes to integrate the comprehensive material and component database, RadCat™, with 3-D modeling, radiation transport, and electrodynamics software to provide a knowledge-based test environment simulation and test planning toolkit to support MDA rad-hard test programs. The proposed product, called the Radiation Test Environment Simulation Toolkit (RadTEST), will i ...

  8. Advanced Survivable Interceptor Modem

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA06005

    With the heavy infusion of commercial of the shelf (COTS) components into modern space and strategic avionics packages there is significant need to enhance component performance while establishing a high probability of mission success for operations in natural and nuclear weapon generated ionizing radiation environments. One component critical to the Ballistic Missile Defense System is the interc ...

  9. Capablitity Evolutionof the Portable Optical Sensor Test (POST) Chamber

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA08009

    The Portable Optical Sensor Test (POST) chamber was designed to provide a low-background, long wavelength infrared (LWIR), high vacuum environment for ground testing exo-atmospheric LWIR sensors. From its original development in 1975 through its eventual mothballing in 2004, the POST chamber underwent virtually continuous improvements and upgrades, resulting in improved radiometric and goniometri ...

  10. Innovative, High Performance, and Radiation Hardened Interceptor Software Defined Radio

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA08037

    Avionics systems currently utilized in BMDS interceptors are considered too expensive, bulky, and heavy, utilizing old technology that does not meet the performance requirements for future interceptor technologies, such as the Kinetic Energy Interceptors (KEI), Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV), and the recently proposed Agile Kill Vehicle (AKV). The government is particularly interested in technologi ...
