  1. Xenon Production by Iodine Transmutation

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic thrusters are the likely choice for station keeping of the new generation of small communication satellites. Xenon is the fuel of choice for these thrusters because of its high mass and low ionization potential. Existing worldwide xenon production will not permit fueling of more than a small fraction of the projected satellite population unless significant price increase of Xe is rea ...

  2. Wide bandgap SiC based field effect transistor for radiation hard microelectronics

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA18007

    The goal of this project is to develop basic semiconductor components (field-effect transistors) that can be deployed in highly radioactive environments, such as nuclear plants, space, radioactive waste storage facilities. Ionizing radiation often has a detrimental influence on the performance of microelectronics components. We propose to develop a prototype microelectronics technology for use in ...

  3. Wide Bandgap Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors for X-Band

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I STTR, Sterling Semiconductor--in cooperation with the University of Colorado at Boulder--will develop novel heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) semiconductor devices for microwave applications. Specifically, the team will develop I gallium nitride (GaN)/silicon carbide (SIC) N-p-n HBTs, consisting of a gallium nitride emitter on a p-type silicon carbide base and an e-type silic ...

  4. Weather "Action-Chain" Enabler (ACE) Application

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 834

    In this Phase II effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Westover Studios, proposes to develop a functional prototype of the Weather “Action Chain” Enabler (ACE) application using the technologies identified, knowledge gained, and preliminary design conceived during the Phase I effort. As designed, the Weather ACE application will be a non-intr ...

  5. Vis/IR Atmospheric Tool (VISIRAT)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16009

    MDA Model and Simulation capabilities include Core Truth models capable of simulating all physics governing missile detection, tracking and intercept events. A key component of the simulation tools is an accurate and fast atmospheric radiation model to describe the target signal propagation through the atmosphere to the sensor. Such a model should be designed to readily interface with existing sc ...

  6. Vis/IR Atmospheric Tool (VISIRAT)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16009

    Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Model and Simulation (M&S) capabilities include Core Truth models (CTM) capable of simulating all physics governing missile detection, tracking and intercept events. A key component of the simulation tools is an accurate and fast atmospheric radiation model to describe the target signals as they propagate through the atmosphere to the sensor. Ideally, such a model shou ...

  7. Under Keel Clearance- Risk Management System (UKC-RMS)

    SBC: W R SYSTEMS LTD.            Topic: 828

    The S‐100 specification is a new geospatial standard for hydrographic data, that is presently under development by the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO). Once the S‐100 based products and services are fully developed by the IHO, current datasets will be scheduled for obsolescence, and the Hydrographic Offices (HOs) will no longer produce them. Companies offering e‐navigation solu ...

  8. Under Keel Clearance Management in Support ofPrecision Navigation

    SBC: W R SYSTEMS LTD.            Topic: 828

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: WR’s approach involves design of a modular, S-129 compliant Under Keel Clearance - Risk Management System (UKC-RMS). This will allow for the Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), ECS, PPUs, and other situational awareness applications to have S-129 Exchange Sets developed for a planned route.In WR’s design, a system such as an ECDIS generates an S40X Rout ...

  9. Ultrahigh Quality, Single-Crystal Bulk Silicon Carbide

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide materials will revolutionize semiconductor devices for military and commercial markets. The material's wide bandgap, high electric field breakdown, high thermal conductivity give SiC capabilities that far exceed those of silicon or gallium arsenide. Despite significant progress in silicon carbide development, fundamental defects--most prominently micropipes--persist. If SiC is to s ...

  10. Transparent Silicone Carbide Seeker Windows

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA17005

    Missile seekers are precision guided munitions that are a key element of modern defense systems.Seekers using laser guidance or imaging require IR-transparent protective windows domes.One of the most challenging applications is in endo-atmospheric interceptors. The ultimate achievable performance of missile seekers under such extreme conditions is limited by the available infrared window materials ...
