  1. High Pressure Singlet Delta Oxygen Generator

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA07050

    The primary objective of CU Aerospace’s Phase I work will be to investigate a relatively new, highly innovative high pressure singlet-delta oxygen generator (SOG) concept for the chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL). Estimates are that this SOG concept will significantly improve the pressure recovery of COIL systems while retaining efficiency. The results of the Phase I research will lay the fo ...

  2. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptors for its BMDS. Imaging technology 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, these require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture optics, whic ...

  3. HgCdTe Detectors Under Non-Equilibrium Conditions for High Operating Temperatures

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA07015

    High sensitivity HgCdTe infrared detector arrays operating at 77K can be tailored for response across the infrared spectrum and are commonly utilized for infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs). However, the cooling systems required to achieve the desired sensitivity makes them heavy and therefore unsuitable for many applications. Infrared arrays operating above ~200K could be thermoelectrically-cooled ...

  4. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  5. Feasibility Study of VLWIR InAs/GaSb Type-II Superlattice for Focal Plane Arrays.

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA07032

    High performance infrared detectors in the very long wavelength infrared (VLWIR) spectral bands are highly needed in a number of missile defense missions. The current state-of-the-art infrared detection technology for missile defense programs is based on the Mercury Cadmium Telluride (HgCdTe) compounds. However, at present it is becoming increasingly apparent that this detection technology is ap ...

  6. Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation Models- An Open Source Approach

    SBC: New Global Systems for Intelligent Transportation Management            Topic: 081FH5

    In the Open-source microscopic traffic simulation models project, a component based software framework is proposed to re-engineer CORISM data struture and CORISM interface. Under the architecture combing the innovative framework and the legacy CORISM, prototype of the open source traffic flow simulation models will be developed and demonstrated in the Phase I. In addition, areas identified by th ...

  7. Multiband Infrared (IR) Seeker

    SBC: Vega Technology & Systems Inc.            Topic: MDA06016

    We propose a large-format LWIR HgCdTe Focal Plane Array that can perform rudimentary signal pre-processing and increase pixel well dynamic range, thereby elevating seeker abilities to acquire, track, and discriminate enemy targets. This approach, supported by Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems, is based on a novel differential dual pixel design using pairs of adjacent pixels each connected in an inv ...

  8. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  9. Cerablak Technology: A New Frontier in Advanced Ceramic Materials

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This small business innovation research Phase I proposal investigates a newly discovered high temperature amorphous oxide material (Cerablak) for use in a broad range of BMDO applications. Cerablak is thermally stable and remains amorphous up to 1400 C inoxidizing environments. No other oxide material is known to exhibit this metastable behavior. Cerablak is synthesized using a patented sol-gel ...

  10. Nano-dimensional patterning of YBCO for AC Loss Conductors

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The main objective of the proposed Phase I project is to demonstrate a simple, scalable process to produce multiple, highly oriented, and longitudinally aligned 50-1000 nm wide YBCO filaments on Ni based tapes for efficient power generation application.The proposed process will take advantage of the well-known property that even a single monolayer of contamination is often sufficient to prevent ep ...
