  1. Short-Range Ultra-Low-Cost Anti-Submarine Sensors

    SBC: BROWN COMPUTER CO.            Topic: SB031023

    Insuring the safety and control of littoral waters is problematic because of the difficulties of surveillance. The preferred methods of surveillance in the ocean are acoustic. In littoral waters, acoustic methods fail because noise from the surf and reflections from the shallow bottom convolute acoustic signatures beyond our capacity to discern them. Water absorbs light, reducing the effectiven ...

  2. Nanostructured active layers for deep-green light emitting diodes (LED)

    SBC: Dot Metrics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB032029

    In phase I, Dot Metrics Technologies demonstrated the feasibility of a new method of introducing deep-green luminescent nanostructure into semiconductor materials for light-emitting device applications. The materials were used to fabricate and characterize preliminary optoelectronic device test structures. In phase II, Dot Metrics Technologies proposes to leverage these new materials and methods i ...

  3. Novel SiGe Devices for Cryogenic Power Electronics

    SBC: GPD Optoelectronics Corporation            Topic: ST041002

    Power generation, power distribution and electric propulsion on ships and aerospace vehicles could be made smaller, lighter, more efficient, more versatile, and lower maintenance by operating these systems—partly or entirely—at cryogenic temperatures. Our goal is to demonstrate the advantages of cryogenic operation in regard to electronic components, specifically semiconductor devices (power d ...

  4. Production of Large Area Semi-Insulating Gallium Nitride Substrates

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04T018

    Ultra-high performance multi-function RF electronics are required by the United States Department of Defense to enable next generation radar and sensor networks in response to an increasingly diverse array of threats to our military and our homeland. An elegant potential solution is that of gallium nitride (GaN) RF electronics, which has shown great promise on currently available yet foreign subs ...

  5. Innovative Manufacturing Process Improvements

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA04035

    The projected cost for the Mentis Sciences, Inc., (MSI) prototype PAC3 radome is 1/6th of the total cost of the present system. A Pareto analysis of the current MSI process indicates that the two largest costs in radome production are the direct labor associated with fabrication and the cost of the raw materials. In Phase I MSI demonstrated that COTS paint spraying technology reduced the direct ...

  6. Aspect-Oriented Secure Fuselet Runtime Environment

    SBC: ORIELLE, LLC            Topic: MDA04044

    We investigate the development of a secure fuselet runtime environment built on a foundation of aspect-oriented web services. Aspect-oriented techniques enable the modularization of crosscutting concerns such as remote access, security, and monitoring using code instrumentation. We compose aspect-oriented instrumentation with web service technologies in a noninvasive and orthogonal manner, and lev ...

  7. MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT FOR PULSED CONDUCTORS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP MATERIALS AND SUPPORTING THERMAL TECHNOLOGY LEADING TO DESIGN OF HIGH POWER PULSE CONDUCTORS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS. IN PHSE I WE WILL EVALUATE AN EM GUN SYSTEM, IDENTIFY ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS AND THERMAL APPROACHES FOR SELECTED COMPONENTS, AND IDENTIFY TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS. COMPONENT DEVELOPMENT FEASIBILITY AND BENEFITS WILL BE DEFINED.

  8. WET TURBOEXPANDER FOR CRYOCOOLERS OF SPACEBORNE SURVEILLANCE SENSORS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED FOR INCREASING THE SENSITIVITY OF SPACE-BORNE SENSORS WILL REQUIRE DEVELOPMENT OF LONG-LIFE, HIGHLY EFFICIENT HELIUM LIQUIFIERS. CONVENTIONAL HELIUM LIQUIFIERS EMPLOY A JOULE-THOMSON EXPANSION VALVE TO EXPAND THE HELIUM AT TEMPERATURES BELOW ABOUT 10 DEG K. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT GAINS OF UP TO 30% IN OVERALL CYCLE EFFICIENCY CAN BE OBTAINED IF THE JOULE-THOMSON VALVE IS REPLACED BY AN EX ...

  9. Demonstration of a 10 K Multistage Cryocooler

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA04077

    Advanced space-borne infrared detectors require cooling at temperatures near 10 K. Cooling loads for these detectors will range from 0.25 W to 1.0 W at 10 K, with additional loads at higher temperatures. A multistage cooler, capable of cooling multiple loads, will offer large potential gains in system efficiency and weight. Turbomachine-based Brayton cryocoolers are ideal candidates for these m ...

  10. Rapid Heating of Lithium Oxyhalide Batteries

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA04037

    Lithium oxyhalide batteries offer energy densities several times higher than thermal batteries. Like thermal batteries, lithium oxyhalide batteries have unactivated storage lives in excess of 20 years and are mechanically rugged. Some of the main advantages that lithium oxyhalide batteries offer are flat discharge voltage profiles and potentially long operating lives. However, battery performanc ...
