  1. Low-Energy Maskless Lithography to Mitigate Radiation Effects in Advanced Nanoscale Microelectronics

    SBC: Multibeam Corporation            Topic: DTRA112003

    The need for novel weapons to defeat urban targets and rapidly immobalize enemy combatants hiding in bunkers, caves, and basements requires new weapons and tactics. Thermobaric warheads can provide tailored blast response optimized for the defeat of these targets with low collateral damage. In this Phase I SBIR program, Powdermet will develop surface-coated metallic particles that can deliver tail ...

  5. Performance Testing of Existing RF Seeker for Hypersonic Electromagnetic Rail Gun (EMRG) Projectiles

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA13026

    Radio Frequency (RF) offers many advantages over Electro-Optical/Infrared for seekers on hypersonic electromagnetic rail guns (EMRG) launched interceptors, but has not been used due to the small aperture limited by the projectile diameter. Tanner Research has overcome this limitation with the endfire antenna, with an aperture that depends on its length, making it ideal for projectile platforms. ...

  6. Spectrally Narrowed Pump Diode Arrays for Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers

    SBC: Laser Operations, LLC            Topic: MDA10007

    Diode Pumped Alkali Vapor Lasers (DPAL) are a promising technology for high power directed energy lasers because of several favorable characteristics, notably the small quantum defect which results in very little deposition of waste heat in the lasing medium and potentially good conversion efficiency and beam quality. Existing diode pumps have spectra that are too wide and inaccurately controlle ...

  7. Chemical and Laser Damage Resistant, High Performance AR Microstructures For DPALs

    SBC: TELAZTEC LLC            Topic: MDA11008

    Compact, efficient, mega-watt power level lasers are being developed by the MDA for the mission of destroying targets over a range of many hundreds of kilometers. A candidate laser technology with the promise of meeting this mission goal is based on alkali gas that is optically pumped by multiple, electrically driven diode lasers. One current problem limiting the potential operational lifetime o ...

  9. Corrosion-Resistant Anti-reflection (AR) Coating of High Energy Alkali Laser Components Using Refractory Materials

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA12016

    Realization of high-performance compact lasers will require the development of substrates and advancements in optical coatings that can withstand the harsh environments of corrosive gases, high temperatures, and high energy densities. Toward this end we intend to undertake the development of novel optical coatings that will simultaneously provide the necessary protection and maintain the optical ...

  10. Optimizing Weapons System and Sensor Pairing Through Efficient Binary Polynomial Optimization

    SBC: DYNAMIC IDEAS LLC            Topic: MDA12004

    Exact formulations of weapon-to-threat assignment problems have long been identified as binary polynomial optimization problems which are theoretically difficult (Non-deterministic polynomial-time-hard or NP-hard), thus previous research for implementation in the area has focused on heuristic solution methods or methods which compromise full formulation with limits on assignment. The introduction ...
