  1. Wide Bandgap Material and Device Development

    SBC: SP3 CORP.            Topic: MDA04T018

    The purpose of the proposed research is to develop GaN molecular beam epitaxy on diamond substrates up to 3 inches in diameter. This unique substrate/epilayer combination will provide electronic materials suitable for high-power and opto-electronic devices without the commonly observed limitations due to the production of excess heat during device operation. The resulting devices will have built- ...

  2. Utility-Weighted Information-Based Sensor Management for Missile Defense

    SBC: TECHFINITY, INC.            Topic: MDA07T005

    The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) continues to evolve and develop as a coordinated and integrated system of systems. As different sensor and weapon platforms are brought together in a unified C2BMC system, the commanders, system and platform operators will require the support of sophisticated tools for planning and scheduling to manage the complexities of multiple, interacting platforms ...

  3. Uncooled VLWIR FPA Using Interferometry

    SBC: NOVASPECTRA INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop a very long wave infrared (VLWIR) FPA (focal plane array) for missile seeker and space surveillance applications, for which the LWIR region is very important. It consists of a 2-D array of micromachined micro Fabry-Perotinterferometers (FPIs), each of which contains a micro airgap cavity formed by two partially-reflecting mirrors, enclosing a micro-volume of air, and a photv ...

  4. Uncooled VLWIR FPA Using Interferometry

    SBC: NOVASPECTRA INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a phase II to develop an uncooled very long wave infrared (VLWIR) focal plane array (FPA) using interferometry to be used in space interceptors that require high sensitivity and resolution for locking onto a target hard-body at long range. Based on our successful demonstration of fabricability in phase I, we will complete the development of a full 128x128 FPA using micromachining with t ...

  5. Ultra-sensitive Uncooled Bolometer FPA for Space Interceptors

    SBC: NOVASPECTRA INC.            Topic: N/A

    "An uncooled long wave infrared (LWIR) focal plane array (FPA) is proposed. It is fabricated with ultra-sensitive micro bolometers, micromachined entirely out of silicon using the MEMS (micro electro-optical mechanical system) technology. It consists of a256x256 array of micro bolometers, each micromachined in a special form to possess an extremely high temperature-resistance coefficient for a det ...

  6. Ultra Tight Coupling for High Anti-Jam GPS/INS

    SBC: Sysense Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    SySense is developing a fault tolerant implementation of an ultra-tight GPS/INS system for use in missile defense. The major advance to the theory is the implementation of the Fault Tolerant Estimator to provide high integrity and continuity to the ultratight structure. In addition, the system will utiliize the missile dynamic structure within the estimation process to enhance continuity during ...

  7. Ultra Tight Coupling for High Anti-Jam GPS/INS

    SBC: Sysense Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    SySense has developed a design and methodology for evaluation of the complete ultra-tight GPS/INS problem. SySense proposes the development of a GPS/INS system to meet high anti-jam, high dynamic, and high integrity requirements for a variety of applications at low cost and using commercial off-the-shelf components. SySense will team with UCLA to design, implement and test the methodologies pres ...

  9. True time delay for interference cancellation

    SBC: OPEL            Topic: N/A

    True time delay (TTD) is essential for optically coupled phased array radars. How to implement the phased array is not so clear since a complete manifold of delays for transmit and delays must be implemented without introducing glitches associated withswitching. In a continuous transmit and receive mode, it is difficult to interrupt the operation to implement a new TTD delay combination in a noi ...

  10. Techniques For Radiation Hardening of EKV Through Incorporation of Shielding In Component Structures Fabricated From Be/Be Alloy Substitute Materials

    SBC: Vanguard Composites Group, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T012

    Future Exoatmospheric Interceptor Kill Vehicle (EKV) system upgrades and Kinetic Energy Interceptors (KEI) are expected to require nuclear radiation hardening of electro-optics subsystems. Alternative approaches include hardening of individual electronic components or external shielding of the subsystem using the structural elements. High atomic number materials, such as gold, tantalum, tungsten o ...
