  1. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T006

    The first sentinel of ABL’s present target acquisition suite is a passive infrared search and track sensor of 1970s vintage, which we propose replacing with HyPAWS. HyPAWS is a low-cost passive wide-field of view staring sensor. Several such units suffice to provide full 360-degree view coverage. Leveraging revolutionary sensing techniques in ongoing development, HyPAWS offers advanced detect ...

  2. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: MDA06T011

    The DoD STTR solicitation is seeking to identify innovative technology to provide a quantum leap in performance for cryocooler systems. Successful development of such an innovative technology will result in lowering the cost and risk of cryocoolers while increasing reliability and lifetime, which will lead to increased producibility of cryocooler systems. Johnson Research & Development Co., Inc. ...

  3. Innovative Solid Rocket Motor Design for Insensitive Munitions

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA06T004

    It is proposed to investigate an innovative mitigation technique for insensitive munitions through a new rocket motor case design. The proposed study will focus upon developing a motor case with sympathetic responses to unplanned thermal stimuli. This particular motor case design will be according to current operating mission parameters for a specific MDA rocket booster.

  4. A lightweight infrastructure for detection and mitigation of insider threats in distributed environments

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA06T009

    The insider threat remains one of the most difficult to detect -- left alone to mitigate -- threats against information systems. The overall objective of the effort (Phase I and Phase II) is to produce and prototype a Distributed Insider Threat Detection System (DITDS) for distributed environments, capable of identifying and quantifying emerging insider threats against the network, allowing for t ...

  5. A Low Cost, Absolute Ambient Carbon Dioxide Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 11

    Although carbon dioxide is monitored worldwide at hundreds of monitoring stations, existing monitoring methods, which rely on the use of high pressure calibration gas cylinders, are both labor intensive and expensive. Thus, there is a pressing need for an affordable, highly-accurate (1 part in 3000) carbon dioxide monitor for the ambient atmosphere. In addition to being extremely accurate, the r ...

  6. Broadly Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser Technology for Remote Sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 01

    National security interests related to the nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction require the remote detection of trace gases associated with the nuclear fuel cycle. Newly developed, mid-infrared, quantum cascade lasers have the potential to contribute to this application. These small solid state lasers produce relatively high power in the infrared band of light where many gases can be ...

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

    SBC: Square One Systems Design            Topic: 23

    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 minutes rat ...

  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 ...
