  1. High Throughput E-Beam Lithography System

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes to develop an electron-beam lithography system capable of high throughput patterning of full-sized semiconductor wafers with minimum feature size to 0.1 um and below. NOVA's key design element is the use of a novel and robust electron source based upon field emission phenomena that is capable of delivering high current to the resist for fast, reproducible exposures. ...

  2. Development of a Terahertz Typing Toolkit for Interceptor Kill Assessment

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09034

    A successful intercept of a missile by a kinetic energy kill vehicle initiates a complex sequence of events and associated observable signatures that occur over a very wide range of temporal, spatial, and spectral scales. The signatures contain important information on the lethality of the intercept and on the contents of the warhead (nuclear, biological, or chemical). The program objective is to ...

  3. Advanced Spectral Signature Models for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09032

    The design of space-based optical sensors for detection, identification, and tracking of threat missile launches relies heavily on plume signature simulation models. The development of very capable plume signature models traces back ~50 years. However, because of the complexity of the underlying physics and ever-increasing requirements for improved accuracy and speed, higher spatial resolution, a ...

  4. Inertial Energy Storage and Roll Control Module

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The BMDO as part of its kinetic energy systems development requires an expendable, inertial guidance package. SatCon is proposing to develop an angular rate sensor combined with an accelerometer which are microfabricated on a single "chip" using the LIGA lithographic process. The accelerometer element employs a rebalanced cantilever, oriented orthogonally to the substrate, while the rate sensor u ...

  5. Ultra Wideband Advanced Antenna Systems for Air Vehicles (1000-198)

    SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N091041

    SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to design and develop a multifunction conformal antenna system for UHF Flight Termination System (FTS), L-band Global Positioning System (GPS), and S-band Telemetry applications for the SM-3 family of missiles and other platforms. To reduce the depth of protrusion, axial length, and weight of the multifunction antenna while maintaining wide bandwidth and high ...

  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. Standardized Atmospheric Generator (SAG) for Inline Environment Generation

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16003

    We intend to dramatically improve the performance of the Standardized Atmosphere Generator (SAG), an environmental background model used to characterize the atmospheric state.SAG is an empirical model which creates a complete picture of the atmospheric state for electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) and radar (RF) systems as well as trajectory computations for targeting and tracking.These systems requi ...

  8. Special Tooling and Processes for Repeatable Adhesive Application

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16014

    Threaded fastening systems in vibrating environments require a secondary locking feature, augmenting primary locking provided by an applied preload, to prevent vibration-induced loosening. The secondary locking feature can be mechanical, prevailing torque-type, or an adhesive. Self-locking nutplates and inserts are often more expensive than adhesives, require retorquing or on-torque adjustments, a ...

  9. Multi-Functional, High Performance, IM-Compliant, Composite Case for Solid Rocket Motor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07047

    Physical Sciences Inc. has successfully demonstrated the operational capability of a filament wound composite case designed to mitigate against slow cook-off, fast cook-off, bullet and fragment impact threats for solid rocket motor (SRM) systems. The implemented manufacturing, quality control and assurance processes enable production of small and large diameter motors to satisfy strategic and tact ...

  10. Fast Running Re-Entry Vehicle Wake Signature Tools

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16019

    The flight environment conditions encountered by re-entry vehicles (RVs) and RV associated spent boosters and flight hardware can produce complex wakes that are difficult to model.Under such high dynamic pressure and angle-of-attack (HDAOA) conditions, ablating heat shield material is entrained in the flow in the form of gases and particulates and reactive chemistry between atmospheric and ablatin ...
