The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Integrated Zonal Meniscus Mirror Technology

    SBC: Xinetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Proposed Phase II SBIR will develop and demonstrate an innovative approach to produce ultra-lightweight, active, segmented primary mirrors for beam directors and imaging telescopes. Named the Integrated Zonal Meniscus Mirror, it combines thedesireable materials properties of a silicon carbide substrate with electroactive actuators and sensors, and application specific integrated circuits imbe ...

  3. Development of a Terahertz Typing Toolkit for Interceptor Kill Assessment

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09034

    A successful intercept of a missile by a kinetic energy kill vehicle initiates a complex sequence of events and associated observable signatures that occur over a very wide range of temporal, spatial, and spectral scales. The signatures contain important information on the lethality of the intercept and on the contents of the warhead (nuclear, biological, or chemical). The program objective is to ...

  4. A Ladar Signature Capability for Transient Missile Events for FLITES

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA04026

    Engagement simulation models provide an indispensable tool for the design of sophisticated missile defense systems. This requires treating real-time motions and the complex scattering physics of active laser interactions with plume and debris fields from hardbody/plume transient events. Spectral Sciences, Inc., in collaboration with Kinetics, Inc and Photon Research Associates, Inc., proposes to ...

  5. Beryllium Alloy Replacement Materials for Missile Optical Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: MDA03048

    Foster-Miller will demonstrate an innovative, low cost and health hazard-free ceramic matrix composite (CMC) material to effectively substitute beryllium and its alloys in EKV optical structures. We previously demonstrated an affordable and scalable processing route to produce high performance and complex shaped CMC materials. During Phase I, mechanical and thermal properties of our low cost SiC m ...

  6. Low Defect LWIR Substrates by Detached Growth Method

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA05008

    The goal of this program is to extend our Phase I success in growing detached CdZnTe crystals to growth of high quality 51-mm (2-in) diameter crystals as substrates for LWIR sensors. This goal is to be pursued through a strong emphasis on purification of starting materials, experimental identification of the optimal growth conditions, establishment of a science-based reproducible technology , inc ...

  8. All Altitude Atmospheric RT Algorithm for Scene Generation

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA04149

    MDA has an urgent need for rapid and accurate scene generation codes. The current highly accurate state-of-the-art (SAMM2) is limited in two ways: (1) it is designed to compute a single line-of-sight as opposed to scenes and (2) its core numerical algorithm is geared toward reproducing the exact line-by-line result as opposed to being optimized for speed. This Phase II intends to address both te ...

  9. Novel Antireflective Coating to Improve Microelectronic Processings

    SBC: AST PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    One of the primary processes used for device patterning in the electronics industry is deep ultaviolet photolithography. However, the highly reflective substrates require reduction of this reflectivity to minimize standing waves and to maintain tightdimensional control. Most of te industry uses anti-reflective coatings (ARCs) which are applied using the spin coating technique. Unfortunately, spi ...

  10. Advanced Spectral Signature Models for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09032

    The design of space-based optical sensors for detection, identification, and tracking of threat missile launches relies heavily on plume signature simulation models. The development of very capable plume signature models traces back ~50 years. However, because of the complexity of the underlying physics and ever-increasing requirements for improved accuracy and speed, higher spatial resolution, a ...
