  2. In-situ Stress and Temperature Optical Monitoring for low-cost heteroepitaxial substrates for HgCdTe infrared detectors.

    SBC: k-Space Associates, Inc.            Topic: A09151

    An integrated, in-situ, real-time, optical metrology system will be developed to measure temperature, film stress and reflectivity during CdTe and HgCdTe-based deposition applications. Temperature measurement will be performed using band-edge thermometry and blackbody radiation analysis to provide a measurement range of 25-800 degrees C on Si, GaAs, and CdTe-buffered Si/GaAs substrates. The system ...

  4. Red Flag Referee (RedRef)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF093027

    ABSTRACT: Red Flag is a multinational exercise featuring aerial combat flight operations. Due to the complexity and scope of these exercises, participants require a significant amount of spin-up in advance of their arrival. Specifically, there are a number of logistical and safety related that a pilot must learn and abide by. These rules govern ground operations, marshaling, rules of engagemen ...

  5. Short Pulse Radio Frequency (RF) Field Measurement System

    SBC: Opteos, Inc.            Topic: AF093029

    ABSTRACT: Opteos Inc. is proposing a new approach to the measurement of electric fields based on the electrooptics principles. This system promises an extremely high bandwidth of operation, 50GHz to 100GHz, a wide dynamic range up to 60dB, and high accuracy better than 1% full scale. The system is modular with partitioning concepts that allow for inexpensive expansion and easy maintenance. The p ...

  6. Loc's Maximum Torque Quick Disconnect (MaxTorQD) Bradley Final Drive

    SBC: LOC PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: A11052

    Heavy add-on-armor installed on the Bradley Fighting Vehicle has degraded the vehicle"s mobility performance. Vehicle acceleration has declined to 80% of its original capability. To cost effectively modernize the mobility system, the final drive torque capacity must be significantly increased to maintain the current package space. Loc Performance Products, Inc., the Army"s provider of robust, ...

  7. Ultra High Pressure Jet Propellant-8 (JP-8) Fuel Injection

    SBC: Alternative Fuel Technology, LLC            Topic: A09199

    The Army uses intensified fuel injection systems on a number of their diesel powered vehicles. These systems are currently limited to injection pressures of about 20,000 psi. In an effort to increase thermal efficiiency (fuel economy), raise power output and operate on a variety of heavy hydrocarbon fuels, the army desires to develop an ultra-high pressure (>40,000 psi)intensified fuel injection s ...

  10. Precise fabrication of photonic integrated systems using low cost nanoimprint process

    SBC: Sinoora Inc.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this STTR proposal, we propose to develop a cost-effective and high-fidelity nanoimprint process for the fabrication of integrated photonics devices. VLSI photonics applications require a hig-level of control on device-to-device uniformity. Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) holds promise to overcome the current technological challenges in lithography while being cost effective at the same time. One ...
