  1. Tin Whisker Mitigation Technologies for Sn-based Surface Finishes on Electronic Assemblies and Microelectronic Devices

    SBC: Foresite, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T010

    The impact of metal whiskers on the reliability of electronics has been exacerbated by environmentally-driven efforts to eliminate lead from tin plating and solders. Even exempt applications, such as military, are affected due to COTS. Foresite, Inc., a consultant, laboratory and test equipment development company, has a goal for the subject research, in collaboration with Purdue University, to ...

  2. A Stochastic Integration Toolkit fo rComprehensive Global Weather and Climate Models

    SBC: Argos Intelligence, LLC            Topic: 823

    Stochastic parameterization of large scale models is becoming an important tool for evaluating climate predictability and for enabling accurate representation of effects of micro-scale and short time physics on long time climate statistics. The models currently used to evaluate climate risk do not incorporate these stochastic effects, but represent multi-year development and collaboration between ...

  3. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise equiva ...

  4. Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA08002

    A 128 x 128-format avalanche photodiode (APD) focal plane array (FPA), including a low-power dual-mode readout integrated circuit (ROIC) and low excess noise, high gain (M>1,200) will be developed for laser radar (LADAR) applications requiring reduced SWAP. The FPA gives LADAR seekers an advanced active tracking sensor capability, providing a sufficiently wide field of regard (FOR) to eliminate th ...

  6. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: MDA06T011

    JRD, Raytheon, and Tuskegee University have successfully completed the Phase I effort for design and development of an advanced solid state cryocooler for infrared sensor components. In addition, it was decided that the lowest-risk path forward for Phase II is the two-stage hybrid pulse tube / Joule-Thomson design. These initial calculations predict that efficiency potential of the solid state c ...

  7. Adaptive Guidance Against Maneuvering Targets for Ballistis Missile Defense

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA07012

    Existing approaches to guidance and estimation for intercept of maneuvering targets are often dependent on assumed models of maneuvering target behavior. We have shown in Phase I that intercept lethality can be dramatically reduced when an interceptor guidance strategy optimized for a specific maneuvering target type encounters a target whose behavior differs from that of the assumed model. We th ...

  8. Novel Binder Materials for IM-compliant Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: In Space, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA06T004

    The need for munitions insensitive to unplanned stimuli possible in the logistical and operational life cycle of a munition is paramount for safeguarding life and property. To help meet this need, IN Space and Purdue University have developed a new class of composite solid rocket propellant based on an energetic, low toxicity, high strength binder. The Phase I effort demonstrated the feasibility ...

  9. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known. Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use. The Tec ...

  10. Small Scale Cryogenic Refrigeration Technology: Small-Scale PTR

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, Inc. in collaboration with Georgia Tech and Raytheon Company proposes a Phase II STTR program for the development and testing of meso- and micro-scale Pulse Tube Refrigerator cryocooler systems. The Phase I program performed numerical modeling and CFD simulations of the small-scale effects (e.g., increased surface area to volume ratios with relatively greater fri ...
