  2. 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 ...

  4. Thin Robust Electrical Insulator for High Field HTS Magnets

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 62d

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is proposed to address high temperature superconductor insulation to help improve stability and quench protection. Most importantly stability will be increased so that the power level at which quench occurs is greatly increased. Quench is the rapid, unintended transition from superconducting to normal conducting. It is a consequence of a faul ...

  5. Development of High Current 2G High Temperature Superconductor Cabling Technology

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 66c

    Future magnets for Fusion Energy Systems require superconducting cables with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, 20 Kelvin operation, low AC losses and lower cost. A new method of fabricating a high current cable with 2G HTS tapes has been developed that will improve the engineering current density achievable. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Fut ...

  6. Miniaturized Thermoacoustic Cryocooler for Missile Defense Applications(1001-247)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    Triton Systems, Inc., proposes to transition a proof of concept cryocooler developed under the MDA STTR Phase I effort, to a miniaturized cooling system that will have commonality and reducibility to serve multiple MDA missions. The proposed cryocooler uses a novel standing wave design to achieve the miniaturization and low weight needed for MDA focal plane array cooling systems. This cryocool ...

  7. Improved Solid-State Neutron Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 37a

    Improved methods of neutron detection are needed not only for nuclear physics research but also for international control of weapons and neutron based therapies in medical applications. He-3 tube-based neutron detectors and planar solid-state neutron detectors are the two currently available technologies for thermal neutron detection. Although He-3 tube-based neutron detectors have efficiencies ...

  8. 5V, High Gain, High Sensitivity Photomultiplier Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 26a

    The gamma ray spectrometers used for nuclear physics research at national laboratories are expensive, bulky, and limited in maximum count rate and other performance measures. Scintillators would be a viable alternative, provided that conventional glass photomultiplier tubes could be replaced with a high quantum efficiency, UV sensitive solid state detector that operates at low voltage, has low no ...

  9. High Efficiency Electron Detector for Electron Microscopy

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: 13b

    This project seeks to demonstrate an improved, ultra-fast and highly-efficient electron detector for electron microscopy. In Phase I, ultrafast ,pico-second, ZnO based scintillators were developed and Schottky diodes with excellent performance were demonstrated. Phase II will refine the development of the ZnO scintillator to maximize light output, while maintaining sub-nanosecond speed; and buil ...
