  1. Stacked High-capacity High-Speed Serial 10K Superconductor Memory Modules

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is to combine the proven high density 3D packing technology with the ultra high performance of low temperature superconductor memory technology. The maturity level of the memory is approaching 16 Kbits per square centimeter. The memory is akey enabler for superconductor electronics processing but to be practical for near-term applications, larger blocks of this memory must be assem ...

  2. Ultra High-Speed, High-Resolution Advanced Filter Bank Analog and Digital Converter with Linearity Compensation

    SBC: V CORP. TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase II proposal develops two independent but complementary technologies that, when combined, provide up to an 8-fold increase in speed of analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion with high-resolution, wide dynamic range performance.The Advanced Filter Bank (AFB) technology provides the architecture to combine state-of-the-art converters to dramatically increase the speed. The ...

  3. Generalized Multivariate Decision Theory: A Novel Target Detection in Clutter Using Joint Bayesian & Generalized Likelihood Tests in Neyman-Pearson De

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA04012

    A novel Decision Theoretics algorithm based on cascaded generalized and Bayesian likelihood tests in a Neyman-Pearson detection was demonstrated under Phase-I. OKSI demonstrated EO/IR subpixel target detection, identification, and countermeasure mitigation. The algorithm was tested with the airborne HYDICE sensor and the Forest Radiance data set. Detector ROC curves were developed to establish ...

  4. Fast Nuclear Event Detection and Circumvention System FPA ROIC

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: MDA04057

    End product of SBIR is a fully qualified NED for use in GBI (4/Kill Vehicle and 4/Booster). The NED is 1/15 the volume and has 1/3 the power consumption of leading commercial NED. It will enable DISTRIBUTED, MULTI-LEVEL circumvention and recovery, replacing the current single-level circumvention of the ENTIRE electronics. This will also allow optimization and reduction of GBI shielding. The NED wi ...

  5. Microcrack Investigation and Mitigation for Cryogenic Systems


    WCT prior experience has shown that microcracks can be generated as a liquid hydrogen composite tank wall cools from room temperature conditions down to liquid hydrogen temperature. Cycling between these temperature levels causes these cracks to grow andpotentially form delaminations between the plies resulting in leak paths. This Phase II program will define microcracks as they are generated an ...

  6. Sensors and Surveillance: Fusion-Generated Target Discrimination for BMDO Sensor and Surveillance Systems

    SBC: ORINCON            Topic: N/A

    ORINCON's Fusion-Generated Target Discrimination effort will develop innovative algorithms for Project Hercules and the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) that address complex NMD technological hurdles in the areas of discrimination, tracking, and decisionsupport. Proven multiple-hypothesis fusion and extended Kalman filter algorithms provide super-resolution of target cloud objects by removing multipl ...

  7. Ballistic Missile System Composite Integrated Missile Harness Fairing Assembly

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA04041

    Next generation interceptor missiles are designed to intercept incoming ballistic missiles during the launch portion of flight when the rocket plume is relatively easy to track. Achieving the burnout velocity with current rocket motor technology (i.e., three stages) presents an aggressive low weight challenge for the missile fuselage structures. The payload antennas provide the datalink between ...

  8. High Performance High-Output Resistive Emitter Design and Circuit Implementations

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: MDA04024

    This program will develop CMOS “Read In Integrated Circuits” (RIIC) that have the unique capability of delivering the high current densities required to operate the next generation of very high-temperature resistive emitters. Heretofore impossible because of the very large unit cell current levels required, Nova will make use of the advances made in the Phase I program to produce wafers that ...

  9. An Optoelectronic Pump-Sharing Module for Fiber-Amplifier Systems

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Employing the sol-gel technology, the Phase II program intend to realize compact multimode interference (MMI) beam splitters integrated with semiconductor diode lasers on silicon for multi-channel pumping of Er3+ doped fiber amplifiers. The MMI splitterswill be designed for the 980-nm window in such a way that the pump-shared outputs will be achieved through a cavity formed between a diode laser ...

  10. Integrated Guidance and Control of Moving-Mass Actuated Kinetic Warheads

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Methods for integrated design of guidance and control systems of kinetic warheads utilizing moving-mass actuators are proposed. Moving mass actuation can be used in any speed range, both in the atmosphere as well as outside it, as long as there is a force,either aerodynamic or propulsive, acting on the vehicle. Since they are contained entirely within the airframe geometric envelope, and because ...
