  1. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  3. Growth of Large Area CZT Crystals

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA08013

    The goal of this program is to produce large area Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) substrates for growth of Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) films for application in IR Focal Plane Arrays. Two growth processes will be pursued in this program. The grown CZT crystals will be processed into substrates. MCT films will be grown on these substrates and their properties will be characterized.

  4. Electromagnetically-Stirred THM Process for Growth of CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA092007

    It is proposed to develop a novel process for growth of high quality CZT crystals for nuclear detection applications. Currently the THM process is the technology of choice for production of high quality CZT crystals. This process, however, suffers from extremely low growth rates. The development effort proposed here will seek to increase the crystal growth rate by 5-10 times the current levels ...

  5. Simulation Optimization Engine (SIMON II) for Missile Defense

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA08036

    Missile defense remains a crucial component for protecting the United States and her allies from potential long-range threats. Modeling and simulation (M&S) is recognized by the Missile Defense Agency as a key enabling technology supporting Warfighters and analysts in ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) design, testing, performance assessment, training, wargaming, and system acquisition. The u ...

  6. Tin Whisker Mitigation Technologies for Sn-based Surface Finishes on Electronic Assemblies and Microelectronic Devices

    SBC: Foresite, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T010

    The impact of metal whiskers on the reliability of electronics has been exacerbated by environmentally-driven efforts to eliminate lead from tin plating and solders. Even exempt applications, such as military, are affected due to COTS. Foresite, Inc., a consultant, laboratory and test equipment development company, has a goal for the subject research, in collaboration with Purdue University, to ...

  9. SATT (Smart Anti-Tamper Technologies)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA08043

    The protection of CPI from unwanted transfer is necessary to ensure a tactical advantage over our adversaries. Various powered sensor response techniques have been developed for AT systems. These systems require a means to be constantly powered for long periods of time. A downed or stored weapon system may need protection for many years removed from a primary power source. Energy storage technol ...
