The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. CZT Substrates for Improved MCT Detector Performance

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA09022

    CapeSym has developed a process for growth of high quality Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) substrates used in the fabrication of Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (IRFPAs). CapeSym proposes to produce substrates suitable for fabrication of IRFPAs by the molecular beam expitaxy (MBE) method. The fabricated devices will be tested and the results will be used to improve the c ...

  2. A Standardized Development Suite for Decision Engines

    SBC: QuickFlex, Inc            Topic: MDA08043

    QuickFlex is creating a standardized development suite for decision engines which can be inserted into any number of systems to provide an "off-the-shelf' component for monitoring inputs from various sensors. The inputs, their meaning, and their relationships are unique to each system, but the decision engine, and the tools used to setup that engine, will be provided as a common platform. The gene ...

  3. Security Improvements for Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)

    SBC: The Athena Group, Inc.            Topic: MDA13010

    In this Phase II SBIR project, The Athena Group, Inc., will develop an innovative technology to improve the security of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This technology will be realized as a customizable intellectual property (IP) block that can be readily included in FPGA designs, will consume minimal hardware resources, and will have a negligible impact on the performance of the device. ...

  4. Innovative Solutions for Improving Discrete Debris Signature Models

    SBC: CORVID TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA13012

    It is important that the sensor signatures of models used in missile defense simulations match the fidelity requirements of the system being tested or assessed.For radar systems this corresponds to having Radar Cross Section (RCS) characterizations that stimulate the features associated with important radar functions.In the Phase I of this program we demonstrated the ability to improve the RCS cha ...

  5. High Frame Rate and Dual Band Infrared Focal Plane Array (FPA) Sensors

    SBC: NBN TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA13028

    nBn Technologies proposes using our new absorber materials for dual color long wave infrared (LWIR) nBn FPAs. Our optimized nBn structure and devices show state of the art performance in the long wave infrared regime with greater quantum efficiency in top and bottom illumination due to to low dark current. Our main goal in this phase-II is to develop and demonstrate dual color nBn FPAs utilizing ...

  6. Power System for Airborne High Energy Laser (HEL)

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: MDA13021

    FTT proposes the detail design and test of a prototype rocket-based turbogenerator for high energy laser and other directed energy weapon applications. During phase I, FTT showed significant performance advantages for the rocket-based turbogenerator over energy storage devices and traditional gas-turbine based systems. The proposed phase II scope includes detail design, analysis, and ground test ...

  7. High Power Fiber Laser Array High Accuracy Pointing and End Preparation

    SBC: OPTICAL ENGINES, INC            Topic: MDA13019

    This proposed phase 2 program builds on the foundations established in the phase 1 effort to demonstrate both a one dimensional close packed removable array for spectrally combined systems, and a two dimensional large collimated array for both diffractive optical element (DOE) coherently combined systems and also for multi aperture systems. This proposed program is well within Optical Engines exp ...

  8. Lightweight Low Power Long Duration Attitude Control System (ACS) Thruster

    SBC: Valley Tech Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13003

    In applying controllable solid propulsion for future long duration Divert and Attitude Control (DACS) missions, the goal of military and industry is to develop new technologies that improve operating time, mass fraction, performance, cost, and mission assurance while maintaining the storability, safety, and insensitivity advantages of a solid propulsion system. To address this need, Valley Tech S ...

  9. High Frame Rate and Dual Band Infrared Focal Plane Array (FPA) Sensors

    SBC: Nu-Trek            Topic: MDA13028

    In Phase II, Nu-Trek will develop a digital readout integrated circuit (DROIC) and hybridize it to a long wave/long wave (LWIR/LWIR) strained layer superlattice (SLS) detector to form a digital Sensor Chip Assembly (SCA). The Nu-Trek DROIC is being designed to enhance operation of SLS LWIR/LWIR detectors as well as to provide a cost effective solution. Performance is enhanced since the SCA will ...

  10. Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)- Superlattice Light Emitting Diode Arrays (SLEDS)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: MDA13017

    We propose to monolithically integrate an infrared light emitting diode (IRLED) array on the backside of a GaAs substrate whose frontside contains an array of driver circuits. We will develop smaller GaAs substrate via technology to enable smaller pixel pitch and realize a large-scale GaAs-SLEDS read-in integrated circuit (RIIC). Our team consists of experts in IRLED fabrication, RIIC design, Ga ...
