  1. Eddy current detection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lock fastener

    SBC: ALBANY INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop novel eddy current probes based on spin dependenttunneling (SDT) magnetoresistive (MR) sensors to enhance the probability ofdetection of cracks within the bore of installed Taper Lok fasteners. Preliminaryresults show that the use of shaped excitation coils, together with extremelysensitive SDT sensors properly positioned above the structure under inspection,provides a si ...

  2. Novel LADAR Signature Exploitation for Obscured Target Environments

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Laser radars (ladars) have been investigated for the detection, classification and terminal tracking of military targets. One area of concern is the performance of automatic target acquisition (ATA) algorithms on targets that are stochastically obscuredby foliage. A program is proposed that will increase the understanding of target obscuration while increasing the set of non-proprietary ATA algo ...

  5. Multiple Frequency GaN FETs on Aluminum Nitride Substrates

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This program will develop high power, multiple frequency RF switches utilizing AlN substrates developed by Kyma Technologies, Inc. High-performance GaN-based devices, such as microwave transistors, have been demonstrated on sapphire and silicon carbidesubstrates; however, defects due to lattice and thermal expansion mismatch limit device performance. Dislocations significantly affect the performan ...

  6. Ice Phobic Materials

    SBC: MICROPHASE COATINGS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    After four years of research, MicroPhase Coatings has invented a breakthrough silicone-silicate technology. Preliminary tests indicate that the coating is ice-phobic and meets requirements for aviation use. During Phase I we prove: (a) feasibility of usingthe coating to prevent ice buildup in B-2 engine inlets, and (b) compatibility with B-2 systems and Low Observable materials. During Phase I we ...

  7. High Speed Digital Bus Isolator for Space Applications

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NVE will produce and package IC's that monolithically integrate their existing high speed GMR signal isolator silicon into a prototype 800 Mbits/sec. 8 bit transceiver. Commercial high speed data bus interfaces between subsystems such as IEEE 1284 andIEEE 1194 have not been galvanically isolated due to performance, size and cost constraints. These interfaces would benefit from the inclusion of m ...

  8. High Speed Linear Spin-Valve Sensors for Analog Isolator Applications

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate two types of linear spin-valve sensors with excellent linearity and sensitivity as well as optimized bias points, and will also demonstrate the feasibility of their application inanalog isolator devices. The first type of linear spin-valve sensor will be designed similarly to a spin-valve recording head. The second type of li ...

  9. Radiation-Hardened Non-Volatile RAM

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nonvolatile memories, including Magneto Resistive Random Access Memory (MRAM), have limitations in speed, density, power, and manufacturability which limits their use in commercial and space applications. A unique nonvolatile memory architecture has beeninvented by NVE using a patent pending Spin Dependent Tunneling (SDT) cell that will eliminate these limitations. The newly invented SDT nonvola ...
