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. 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 ...

  2. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptor technology for its BMDS. High-quality imagery is crucial to this effort for several purposes, including navigation, false-alarm/decoy identification, and estimation of position and speed of potential targets. Although high-resolution imaging systems are readily available, they require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture o ...

  4. Real-time Atmospheric Disturbance Compensation Using Hardware-Accelerated Speckle Imaging

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA06T006

    Atmospheric disturbances are a major performance-limiting factor in long-range optical systems. In particular, for the Airborne Laser (ABL) the ability of distinguish targets from a long distance is crucial for mission success. Despite the progress in optics and sensor technology, blurring in long-range imaging caused by atmospheric movements and density changes will remain an issue. Digital si ...

  5. Novel Spacecraft Separation System

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N/A

    Tai-Yang Research proposes a novel and revolutionary approach to spacecraft separation. The proposed approach is 100 % contamination free and provides an unlimited number of in-situ rest capability. This revolutionary approach provides a completely uniformand adjustable clamping force. When implemented, the proposed approach will provide a safe, low cost, lightweight, and reliable method of spacec ...

  6. Novel Fabrication Process for HTS Coated Conductor

    SBC: Rey Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) wires remain too fragile and expensive for widespread commercial implementation. There exists a great opportunity to improve upon their many unique properties. Proposed is a process for the fabrication of durable,inexpensive, ultra lightweight, high-performance HTS wires using novel materials. If successful, this new process will have a great economic impact o ...

  8. An Ultrahigh Speed Demultiplexer for Optical Communication Systems

    SBC: Elsicon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Elsicon Incorporated proposes to develop an optical demultiplexer appropriate for use in high bandwidth fiber-optic communication systems. The demultiplexer will be capable of reducing an optical input bit stream with an aggregate bit rate of greater than 100 Gbits/sec down to a 1 Gbit/sec baseband rate. Therefore, by distributing the full serial data stream among an array of these devices, ultrah ...

  9. High Power Frequency Doubled Laser Diode Devices

    SBC: Altos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will determine the practicality of increasing the second harmonic (SH) output of frequency doubling devices by at least 5 times current gutput powers. Altos has demonstrated in preliminary experiments have a 2 times to 3 times increase in SH output by creating thermal gradients across the waveguide structures used to frequency double the lase ...

  10. High Efficiency Floating Junction Gallium Arsenide Solar Cell

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop a new ultra-thin gallium arsenide solar cell for space applications, that will result in significantly higher performance compared to conventional gallium arsenide and silicon solar cells. This design incorporates a "floating" junction on the front of the ultra-thin solar cell and a collecting junction at the back of the device. This design will significantly decreas ...
