  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 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 ...

  3. Wavefront Simulator for 21st Century

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: MDA10004

    With the rapid strides in various avionics-related technologies, the need for advanced simulators will increase. Anti-jam receiver development and future improvements in PNT are critically dependent on the availability of advanced simulators. The needs include: flexible, accurate, adaptable, programmable, user-friendly, hardware in the loop operation, precise wavefront simulation, high dynamics, e ...

  4. Visible and Infrared Scenes for Tactical Environments

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: MDA10025

    Higher resolution optical sensors are driving requirements for highly detailed representations of natural background surfaces and man-made objects for real-time scene generators used in development of Ballistic Missile Defense Systems (BMDS). New methods are critically needed to represent such structures that are computationally efficient enough for scene generators to support the high frame rates ...

  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. Unified Interceptor Assignment Algorithms

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA09026

    Detecting, localizing, and intercepting one or more missiles during ascent phase presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn, MA, and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin, propose a foundational, control-theoretic approach to such problems. It is based on the idea of mathematically modeling a multiplatform-multisensor-multitarget system as SING ...

  7. Unified Control-Theoretic Multi-Raid Sensor Management Algorithms

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Detecting, localizing, identifying, tracking, and intercepting multiple and dispersed missiles aimed at multiple and dispersed defended areas, presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. The Scientific Systems Company, Inc. team proposes a foundational, information-theoretic and controltheoretic approach. It is based on mathematically modeling a multiplatform-multisensor-multitarget s ...

  8. 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 ...

  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. Tooling-Free MMC Casting by Combining 3-D Printing of Ceram

    SBC: METAL MATRIX CAST COMPOSITES, LLC (DBA M            Topic: N/A

    Three-dimensional printed preforms will be used as mold patterns for MMCC's high-density, pressure resistant, castable refractory. Hard tooling will be eliminated from the Advanced Pressure Infiltration Casting process (APIC ). Cost for Al/Sic electronic housings will be slashed 75% over conventional pressure casting. Complex parts will be easily manufactured. Design modifications can be quickly i ...
