  1. Fully Automated Dense 3D Modeling, Geo-Registration and Error Modeling

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA11001

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes research and development of advanced algorithms and efficient software for performing high-resolution georegistered 3D reconstruction with associated error models. The technology will be capable of processing sequences of 2D images to automatically generate and georegister 3D models, with no user intervention required. Rapid processing will be achieved by levera ...

  2. Manufacturing Process Maturation for Propulsion Technology

    SBC: AVEOX, INC.            Topic: MDA10019

    Divert valve actuators require fast response times and in turn high accelerations. Motor-driven divert actuators offer an opportunity to optimize their performance per weight by minimizing the mass to be accelerated while maintaining high torque capability and increasing the functional temperature capacity. Aveox Incorporated (Aveox) and Alliant Techsystems Incorporated (ATK) propose designing a ...

  4. Composite DACS Nozzle for Next Generation Interceptor

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: MDA10013

    Fiber Materials Inc. (FMI) has developed and delivered carbon fiber reinforced silicon carbide (C-SiC) composite nozzles and thrust chambers for solid and liquid/gel fueled divert and attitude control systems (DACS) to Aerojet. The C-SiC material system has been validated with 3700 degrees F solid propellant. The proposed program will address identified barriers to transition of the material sys ...

  5. Defect Reduction at the Silicon (112) Wafer Surface by Amorphization and Recrystallization

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA11T002

    Silicon wafers oriented on (112) are the preferred substrates for deposition of mercury cadmium telluride layers by molecular beam epitaxy. Surface defects introduced during polishing of the wafers degrade the quality of the epitaxy and the performance of infrared detectors fabricated within these materials. We propose a process for reducing the density of the defects that are inherent in the si ...

  6. The Use of Hydrogen for Defect Reduction in Large Format Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA11T002

    Active defects negatively impact the performance of IRFPAs by increasing noise at various levels up to, and including, catastrophic degradation. Evidence indicates that"killer defects"are related to the interaction of open core screw dislocations with impurities that remain after substrate preparation, prior to HgCdTe growth. This impurity diffusion creates a conducting channel that shorts the j ...

  7. High Operability HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays on Si by Mitigation of Defects

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA11T002

    For HgCdTe infrared focal plane arrays fabricated on Si substrates, a model has recently been proposed to account for the disparity between the density of failed pixels and the density of dislocations that are present in the HgCdTe junction region. The model distinguishes between active and inactive dislocations and offers a hypothesis that dislocations are active only when they intersect particul ...

  8. Smart Infrared Focal Plane Arrays and Advanced Electronics

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: MDA10010

    Observing faint objects moving at a distance as well the"man behind the burning tank"requires both a high maximum signal level and a high dynamic range. A simple, yet game changing approach, the distributed analog-to-digital converter (Distributed ADC), provides nearly unlimited upper signal level without corrupting the noise floor at low amplitudes. This will add 3 bits of resolution and improve ...
