  3. Protective coating for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)

    SBC: AST PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) devices, though built using semiconductor equipment, have a different set of failure mechanisms and reliability concerns than integrated circuits. One major concern is stiction, a term that describes the propensity oftwo silicon surfaces to stick to each other if they touch.To solve this problem, AST is proposing to develop organic coatings with Teflon-like ...

  4. Periodically poled stoichiometric lithium tantalate:A new approach for a new material

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    "This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate a promising new technique for fabricating periodic domain gratings in stoichiometric lithium tantalate(SLT). The key innovation in this SBIR effort is the use of externally mountedmicro-electrodes to electrically pole the material. This poling technique, made possible because of the low coercive field found in SLT, will sign ...

  5. Demonstration of On-Orbit Logistics System

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The lifetime of many space systems critical to missile defense is limited by the availability of on-board expendable resources, such as cryogenic fluids and fuels. As these systems become more complex and expensive, the ability to extend the capacity ofon-board cryogenics becomes a key driver of total life cycle cost and effectiveness. AeroAstro will develop an end-to-end architecture for fluid ...

  6. Smart Escort Microsatellite: A Modular Solution for On-Orbit Rendezvous and Inspection

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "AeroAstro proposes to develop a scaleable architecture for a low cost, rapid response Smart Escort Microsatellite inspection and servicing system that will support the needs of the United States military's current and planned space assets, while workingwithin the constraints of the RASCAL program. Instead of competing with other, large infrastructure on orbit servicing programs, this effort will ...

  7. Self-latching solid-state fiber optic cross-connect switch array

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High performance fiberoptic switches are in great demand for use in both modern commercial and defense communication networks and next-generation military sensing systems. Current fiberoptic switches lack reliability and operation speed. Carrie-classreliable switch matrix has not been realized because of the intrinsic limitation of existing technologies. Agiltron Corporation proposes to develo ...

  8. Methods for Detecting and Eliminating Undesired Target Returns from Training Data in Adaptive Radar Processing

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Recent studies have shown that the performance of Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) degrades when there are moving targets in the secondary training data. Although a variety of techniques have been proposed for controlling the effects of targets inthe secondary data (TSD), these techniques generally do not take advantage of external information. We are developing knowledge-based STAP (KBSTA ...

  9. Through Strike Battle Damage Assessment using Synthetic Aperture Radar

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose novel data-adaptive approaches for processing synthetic aperture radar (SAR) phase history data to automatically assess subtle damage inflicted by small sub-munitions on military ground vehicles. These techniques are designed for a battlefieldscenario in which the ground vehicle under attack is illuminated by a stand-off airborne SAR sensor before, during and after the weapon strike, ...

  10. Agile Engagement Planning: Integrating Decision Graphs with Stochastic Dynamic Programming Solvers

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Missile Defense Engagement Planning systems are highly automated. It is the system developers, not the commanders of those systems, who are formulating the engagement planning problem and thereby deciding how engagements will be planned and executed. Inthe history of warfare system developers have never trumped commanders in deciding how a system will carry out orders, and this reversal of affair ...
