  1. Very Large Area Microchannel Plate Neutron Detectors


    NOVA Scientific, Inc., teamed with the Electronics Group of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proposes to construct very large area Microchannel Plate neutron detectors. The applications of these much larger format detectors will serve an exceptionally broad range of government agencies from neutron scattering detectors for DOE to nuclear material panel detectors for NNSA, and ultimately to nuclear m ...

  2. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The terahertz wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum offers exciting and unique attributes for security imaging and secure broadband communications. However, THz signal generation is difficult and current applications are rare. Existing THz sources utilize large and expensive lasers operating in pulsed mode. Practical application of THz radiation requires the development of THz source techn ...

  3. Data Driven Prognostics (Hybrid Nano-scale/Microscale Composites for Deep Thermal Cycle Damage Resistance)

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Programs such as Airborne Laser and Space-Based Laser require highly mass efficient structures. Because of their high specific strength and stiffness this naturally leads to graphite fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) materials for many system components. In fluid storage tank applications GFRP laminates often develop microcracking when subject to cryogenic temperatures and/or stresses due to press ...

  4. Low Expansion Metallic Nanolaminate Replicated Mirrors with CTE Matched High Conductivity Graphite Fiber Reinforced Magnesium Mirror Substrate Structu


    Magnetron sputtering of "Invar-like" nanolaminates onto a pre-finished/figured mandrel is proposed to produce strong, stiff, damage tolerant, low CTE replicas. The structural substrate will be a high performance discontinuous graphite fiber reinforced Mg AZ31 metal matrix composite manufactured by pressure infiltration casting. MetGraf Mg composites have the following attractive attributes for s ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Data Driven Damage Diagnosis and Prognosis

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II proposal focuses on the development of a data-driven, integrated damage diagnosis and prognosis technology to enable on-line, accurate and useful failure predictions for ABL systems. The developed software system will utilize the advanced nonlinear dynamics based signal analysis and dynamics reconstruction methods to identify active damage modes, track their evolution, develop approp ...

  7. Surface Contour Design Models for Foveated Optical Systems

    SBC: REMOTEREALITY CORP.            Topic: MDA04T001

    Catadioptic imaging systems, the mixing mirrors and lenses in an optical system, presents many advantages. The mirror surfaces can provide for a complex remapping of the scene while the mirror itself presents virtually no chromatic aberration. Catadioptric systems have been used for both long-focal length lens (to increase light gathering) and for ultra-wide field of view imaging such as the co ...

  8. Advanced Optical System Technologies

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: MDA04T007

    Detection of missiles during the boost phase requires a sensor located on a high altitude forward deployed platform or on a spacecraft. Unlike a spacecraft, a forward deployed high altitude airship (HAA) or an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is relatively mobile and can be quickly deployed to areas of concern. For a single sensor to fit on a HAA or UAV, it must be compact, low-mass, and energy effic ...

  9. PTHH Estimation using Stochastic Analysis

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA04T014

    The goal of this project is, as stated in the STTR topic, to ``develop candidate digital image processing algorithms for determining the physical centroid of ballistic missiles hard body in presence of their rocket plumes'', to ``test the algorithms against simulated target digital image sequences'', and to ``compute the ballistic missile body centroid and preferred target aim point''. In ach ...

  10. Radiation-Hard, High Efficiency InP/InN Tandem Cells

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: MDA04T017

    Spire proposes to investigate InP/InN tandem solar cells for applications where extreme radiation-hardness is needed. Indium phosphide (InP) has proven itself as a radiation-hard cell material, and indium nitride (InN) has shown superior radiation resistance to 2MeV protons. InP (1.34 eV) and InN (0.7eV) bandgaps allow current-matching (38 mA/cm2) under the AM0 spectrum, enabling two-terminal ope ...
