  2. 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 ...

  3. Advanced Passive and Active Sensors for Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: MDA08T004

    Nu-Trek is teaming with Arizona State University and Raytheon Vision Systems to develop a ROIC with on-chip data conversion. The ROIC uses Nu-Trek"s ultra low power ADC buffer, ADC core, and LVDS pre-driver. The ROIC is being developed for Raytheon"s Next-Gen, dual-band, IR FPAs. Three Nu-Trek innovations that will be implemented in the ROIC are the ultra low power successive approximation registe ...

  4. Computer Network Defense Technologies

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: MDA05T010

    Irvine Sensors Corporation (ISC) together with North Carolina State University propose to develop a novel methodology using advance hardware stacking techniques to detect, mitigate, and track insider threats. Information gathered using this new methodology allows for tracking of insider threats across multiple system architectures that use Variable Message Formats (VMF) into a reconfigurable dev ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Development of a Radiation Hardened Multi-Color LWIR and VLWIR Focal Plane Array Technology

    SBC: AVYD DEVICES, INC.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Our Phase I proposal addresses the demonstration of the feasibility to develop a radiation hardened technology for dual band HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays which would include the LWIR/VLWIR wave bands of 7-14 micrometers and 14-18 micrometers. In Phase II, we plan to implement the approach to demonstrate VLWIR dual color detectors and Read Out ICs culminating in the demonstration of focal plane array ...

  7. 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 ...

  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. 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. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Ness Engineering, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Radio Frequency Directed Energy Weapons (RFDEW) are maturing sufficiently to become a threat to sensitive circuits onboard military platforms. With a large number of active elements, Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) phased array radar units are particularly susceptible and require improvement over the current state-of-the-art in limiter technology. This is particularly needed in the develop ...
