  4. 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. Advancements in Thermal Battery Pellet Manufacture

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA09010

    Thermal batteries are a mission-critical component utilized in virtually every weapon system. All thermal batteries require four types of pellets that comprise the cell stack(s), i.e., the energy-producing portion of the battery. Pellet size (diameter and thickness) and the number of pellets required vary by battery type and application. Pellets are manufactured by compaction of their powdered co ...

  8. Advances in Thermal Battery Anodes

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA08022

    Thermal batteries are employed in virtually every strategic defense and tactical weapon system. As systems capabilities continue to increase, future thermal batteries will be required to deliver higher power and energy in packages smaller and lighter than those available with baseline lithium-silicon (LiSi) / FeS2 technology. Although ENSER’s proprietary LiSi / cobalt disulfide (CoS2) system p ...
