  2. 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.

  6. 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 ...
