  1. Using Automated Abstractions to Classify System States for Software Health Monitoring

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: 9040477

    In most critical software systems, a state that is partially visible through values passed across interfaces contains information that could determine the health of the software system, and whether a failure is likely in the future. Some of this information behaves in a continuous fashion, e.g., the available memory or disk space is easily interpreted to monitor system health. Other values are nom ...

  2. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  3. High Speed and High Sensitivity Quadrant Photodetector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 912085R

    To further advance the characterization and utility of microcantilevers, next generation optical detectors with higher frequency response, improved displacement resolution and lower noise for weak signal detection are needed. Consequently, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a turnkey optical detector module for use in characterizing the displacement and resonant frequencies of m ...

  4. A Single Aperature Dual-Wavelength Dual Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and nation’s economy. From an average of $10B (2005 dollars) annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry that is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets being lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now-casting and forecasti ...

  5. MBE CdTe on Compliant Substrates for High Performance IRFPAs

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays are based on HgCdTe grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The use of Si-based substrates would eliminate a number of drawbacks related to the HgCdTe/CdZnTe system and permit larger formats. We have developed growth protocols that produce material with good crystal quality for such a highly mismatched heteroepitaxial system. Double crystal rocking c ...

  6. Defect Passivation for High Performance HgCdTe on Si

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Hydrogen isotopes have been shown to reduce the electrical effects of various semiconductor defects. Specifically, monoatomic hydrogen and deuterium passivate the electrical activity of defects such as dislocations in long-wavelength HgCdTe grown on Si. We propose a novel method of controlling the intake of hydrogen in HgCdTe IRFPAs by using the H2/He plasma afterglow formed by flowing plasma-gene ...

  7. Defect Reductions on Si Substrates for HgCdTe MBE Growth

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) are based on HgCdTe material epitaxially grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The size of the IRFPAs is limited by the size of the available CdZnTe substrates and the thermal mismatch between CdZnTe and the Si readout circuit, which misaligns the photodiode array with respect to the circuit during heating and cooling cycles. Having HgCdTe ...

  8. High-Speed Three-Channel Photonic Time Delay Unit

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative, super-miniature, fast-switching array-based photonic time delay device is being developed for the active electronically scanned-array (AESA) MDA and Navy radars. The design is based on the fast electro-optic effect, the super miniature fiber-lens collimation array, and the existing WDM photonic true time delay technologies. In Phase I Agiltron has successfully demonstrated the core ...

  9. Feature-aided Globally Optimized Sensor Fusion for BMD

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA10001

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop, evaluate, and test new elements of a sensor fusion architecture for Command, Control, and Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) for Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD). PSI proposes an innovative architecture designed to leverage sensor diversity and multimodal feature extraction to provide Enhanced C2BMC functionality in search, track, discrimi ...

  10. Resource Allocation using Market-Based Optimization (RAMBO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Missile defense takes place in a dynamic, uncertain environment. Multi-raid attacks threaten to overload sensor capabilities, leaving fewer sensor resources free to observe each target complex. Moreover, the shift in emphasis toward early intercept, coupled with the growing importance of short- and medium-range threats, reduces the time available for detection, tracking, and discrimination, becaus ...
