  1. Stratospheric Electrical Environments Applicable To Photovoltaic Arrays On HAA Platforms

    SBC: LIGHTNING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04T008

    The objective of this program is to characterize the upper atmosphere electrical environment so that the effects of this environment on high altitude airships (HAA) and other platforms intending to operate in this environment can be determined, and protection methods developed. This includes transient luminous events (TLEs), such as red sprites and blue jets and their associated electrical propert ...

  2. Design and Development of Radiation Hardened ROIC for Multi-color LWIR/VLWIR Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Radiation Hardened Multi-color infrared (IR) focal planes are required for MDA/SMDC systems applications . Key to meeting these system requirements is to develop multi-color radiation hardened HgCdTe focal plane arrays for LWIR band ( 7-14 microns) and VLWIR band with wavelength of greater than 14 microns with high pixel uniformity, reduced readout noise, improved resolution, and higher temperatur ...

  3. Full-spectrum Integrated Reaction Evaluation and Synthesis (FIRES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T017

    Highly energetic chemical processes play a central role in many military and commercial applications. For example, spectral emissions from missile plumes, arising from high-velocity chemical interactions of exhaust gases with the atmosphere, are used to detect, track, and identify threat targets. Detailed, quantitative knowledge of the energy-dependent chemical reaction cross sections and rates i ...

  4. Catalytic Coal Gasification

    SBC: Great Point Energy, Inc.            Topic: 10d

    79817 Although U.S. coal reserves are large enough to ensure energy security for the U.S. for several centuries, dependence on foreign natural gas and oil continues to grow because technologies for producing power with these fuels have an economic advantage over coal-based integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology. Yet, IGCC technology is a highly efficient and environmentally frie ...

  5. Ultra-high Productivity Metal Membranes for Hydrogen Production Applications

    SBC: Hy9 Corporation            Topic: 19c

    78524 Durable, ultra-high productivity, low-cost hydrogen membranes for water-gas shift membrane reactors have been identified by the DOE as critical for low cost hydrogen production from coal or other fuels. The DOE has set aggressive membrane cost and performance targets, which, if met, promise to revolutionize hydrogen production. This project will develop a novel process for producing high q ...

  6. Multi-Gigabit OS Bypass System for Grid Computing

    SBC: SeaFire Micros, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    76151-Upon transmitting or receiving messages, classical network interface cards generate an interrupt to the operating system kernel, and thus to the host processor, which must service the interrupt. However, as grid-based scientific computing within DOE networks approach 10 ¿ 40 Gigabits per second, this procedure could tie down the host processor with interrupt latency. Therefore, new oper ...

  7. An Automated Sample Handling Workcell for the SNS Liquids Reflectometer

    SBC: Square One Systems Design            Topic: 23a

    78887 When completed, the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will provide unprecedented opportunities for performing groundbreaking neutron science. Two reflectometers are planned for the SNS, one optimized for the measurement of liquid surfaces and the other for the measurement of magnetic materials. The SNS¿s high neutron flux will allow these instruments to collect complete data sets in minu ...

  8. Development of a Truly Lattice-Matched III-Nitride Technology for

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to implement a lattice matched III-Nitride technology using existing substrates. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocationfree III-Nitrides for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...

  9. Improved SiC Materials for High Power Electronics

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon has long been the semiconductor of choice for high-voltage power electronic applications. Recently, SiC has attracted attention because SiC is projected to have better performance than silicon. [1] SiC power switching devices have yet to becommercialized, largely due to SiC crystal defects, most notably the device-killing micropipe defect, which does not permit high total current parts t ...

  10. A Tunable Interferometric Random Optical Cross-Switch

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A random access, solid-state, optical cross-switch capable of 770 channel discrimination in the telecommunications C-band is designed and proven as an alternative to current thin-film WDM devices and as a mechanically robust alternative tomicroelectromechanical (MEMS) WDM devices. The device may be used in multiplexing (mux), demultiplexing (demux), or complete cross-switch configurations, and is ...
