  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Wide Field of View Missile Sensor Capable of Spectral Discrimination

    SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: MDA05T003

    Long range missile sensors with capability of distinguish missiles from other flying tracks such as aircrafts and SAMs are crucial devices in missile defense systems. The capability of highly accurate angular detection of the missile along with three-component velocity determination is also important. Existing missile warning products cannot meet advanced missile defense requirements with these de ...

  5. Rapid,Single Atomic Step Mechano-chemical Polishing (MCP) of Silicon Carbide Wafers

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA05T016

    Presently one of the outstanding challenges for rapid commercialization of SiC based device technology for high power/high frequency electronics is the affordable, volume production of damage-free, epi-ready 100 mm SiC wafers that exhibit single atomic steps (terraces). Sinmat Inc. in partnership with wafer manufacturers and the University of Florida propose to further develop a novel gentle mech ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Passive Liquid/Vapor Separation Using an Inertia Driven Rotating Drum

    SBC: RINI TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05T004

    We plan to develop a passive liquid/vapor phase separation technology that is based on a freely rotating drum. The drum can separate the liquid and vapor phases with less than 1% carryover for both. It is driven by the inertia of the incoming two-phase fluid and no power is needed. The rotation provides a centrifugal acceleration that is much larger than 10g. Thus the drum will function well i ...

  8. Novel Programmable Optical Interconnects for Optoelectronic Packaging

    SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optical interconnects are required, for high speed opto-electronic packaged computing systems for fast image data processing for missile interception and target identification. They are also useful for fast access to large intelligent database. However,low cost polymer waveguide optical intercornnects and other waveguide interconnect lines suffer from packaging difficulty of waveguide interconnect ...

  10. 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 ...
