  1. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Gamma radiation detection has traditionally required single crystal materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. Agiltron has developed a new class of scintillator materials based on composites containing nanoparticles. These so-called nanocomposites exhibit radiation detection characteristics superior to currently available single crystal scintillators. In Phase I ...

  2. Fast Switching Array for WDM-Photonic Time Delay

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative concept of a fast switching array for high bit-resolution photonic time delay that can be scalable to the ESA systems of MDA/Navy radars is proposed. The design is based on Electro-Optic (EO) effect incorporated with super miniature fiber collimation array, which is suitable to integrate in the current developing fiber based photonic WDM-true time delay technologies. The new EO switc ...

  3. Wideband photonics-based beamformer with multiple beams

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08027

    The multi-beam beamformer can benefit MDA’s radar sensor and communication. In this program, Agiltron proposes a photonics-based, multi-beam, low-loss beamformer. Agiltron’s variable fiber optic time delay lines will provide true time delay for the beamformer to form, steer, point and track the RF beams for ground-base, airborne or other RF systems. The proposed beamformer, leveraging on the r ...

  4. 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 5x5 cm2, right cylinder, ...

  5. Growth of Large Area CZT Crystals

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA08013

    This proposal seeks to develop a new process for production of large area CdZnTe substrates for large area focal plane arrays. The proposed system promises to overcome innate scale-up obstacles in the current method for production of CdZnTe crystals.

  6. LANguage Conversion Engine (LANCE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07005

    From 1987-1997, DoD required Ada for every software project where new code generation was more than 30% of the effort. With the decline in Ada’s popularity, it has become increasingly difficult to find skilled Ada developers to maintain this legacy code. Code maintainers who don’t know Ada typically convert the code to a language they understand, which is a tedious error-prone process. A conve ...

  7. Simulation Optimization Engine (SIMON) for Missile Defense

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA08036

    As evidenced by recent events, 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 alike in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) design, testing, performance assessment, training, war ...

  8. Improved Manufacturing Processes for Advanced Capacitors

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: MDA07025

    This Small Business Innovation Research project addresses improving manufacturing methods and performance of high-voltage capacitors. During Phase I, Giner, Inc. demonstrated novel and inexpensive methods for manufacturing and stacking of multiple cells

  9. Calibration techniques for very large arrays

    SBC: GMR RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: MDA08030

    GMR Research & Technology (GMR) proposes to develop real-time digital methods to compensate for analog distortions in large RF arrays. In particular we will address manifold distortions caused by geometry, electronic, and near-field distortions. In this phase of the SBIR effort we will develop this approach for X-band arrays of at least 16 by 16 elements with at least 500 MHz instantaneous bandwi ...

  10. Novel Binder Materials for IM-compliant Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA06T004

    The need for munitions insensitive to unplanned stimuli possible in the logistical and operational life cycle of a munition is paramount for safeguarding life and property. To help meet this need, IN Space and Purdue University have developed a new class of composite solid rocket propellant based on an energetic, low toxicity, high strength binder. The Phase I effort demonstrated the feasibility ...
