  1. High-Efficiency Low-Volume Flight Pulse Tube Cryocooler

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA17T003

    CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partners San Jose St. University (SJSU) and Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company (LMSSC) propose to develop a robust epoxy resin regenerator capable of improving cryocooler efficiency by more than 30%, and to design an enhanced compressor motor capable of improving the cryocooler efficiency by more than 20%. LMSSC manufactures a space cryocooler that already meets most ...

  3. Compact Modular DACS

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: MDA18008

    GTL has identified an innovative architecture for KV Divert and Attitude Control System (DACS). Instead of mounting a set of liquid propellant tanks around a central structural mast as done in conventional storable liquid DACS, the Compact Modular DACS uses an innovative configuration for propellant storage.The CMDACS architecture has increased volumetric efficiency that will increase the kinemati ...

  4. Radiation Hardened Interceptor LWIR Type-II Superlattice-based Seeker Sensors

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: MDA16011

    The aim is to demonstrate that Type-II InAs/GaSb superlattices (T2SLs) will exhibit significantly improved radiation hardness in comparison to the existing state-of-the-art HgCdTe-based sensors. T2SL-based sensors consist of III-V compound semiconductors which have much stronger bonding than II-VI-based sensors, and should be less susceptible to ionizing and nuclear particle radiation. This will ...

  5. UCDS Propulsion Modeling

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: MDA09T009

    History has repeatedly shown that combustion instability is the greatest technical risk faced in any chemical propulsion development program, with some form of pressure oscillations experienced in practically every engine development effort. The costs to mitigate combustion instability can be extremely large due the need to rely upon hardware intensive build and test efforts. This combination of ...

  6. Lithium Oxyhalide Battery Separator Material

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA15027

    eSpin Technologies will design the scale up machine to produce novel high performance separator for lithium primary batteries. The process will be developed to produce novel separator and a variants which has the potential of a significantly higher volumetric efficiency for electrolyte storage capacity and kinetics to distribute electrolyte flow within nanoporous channel efficiently. This new sep ...

  7. Spectral crosstalk reduction in dual-band LWIR photodetectors based on antimonide-based type-II superlattice focal plane arrays

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: MDA15T004

    In this project, we propose to study the spectral crosstalk in strain-balanced antimonide-based type-II superlattices for dual-band LWIR detection and imaging. At the end of this effort, we expect to minimize the spectral crosstalk in these devices while they demonstrate excellent electrical and optical performance.

  8. 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) ...

  9. Non-Destructive Testing Method to Detect Red Plague Within an Insulated Silver-Plated Copper Conductor

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA15024

    We propose to develop a non-destructive test method to identify and quantify the formation of red plague corrosion within an insulated silver-plated copper wire. Cross-linked ethylene-tetrafluoroethylene (XL-ETFE)-insulated silver-plated copper wire demonstrates high performance and is commonly used in military and aerospace applications as hook-up and lead wire, but is prone to galvanic corrosion ...
