  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. New Rare-Earth-Doped Glasses for Planar Waveguide Lasers & Amplifiers

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: MDA96T002

    This STTR Phase II project continues the development of a new glass (designated MM-i) for ion-exchange glass waveguides and amplifiers used in l.55 um optical communication systems. There is excellent commercial potential for these glass materials and the waveguide lasers (lossless splitters) and optical amplifiers that may be fabricated from them. To date, development efforts in the communication ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. New Broad Band Rare-Earth-Doped Glasses For Optical Fiber Communications

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Kigre has an idea and evidence for a new family of broadband glasses that break all of Zachariasen's standard accepted rules for glass formation. This family of glasses is based upon the extensive use of multiple glass formers such as SiO2, B2O3, La2O3and P2O5. By employing multiple glass formers in a laser glass, Kigre is able to expand the bandwidth without sacrificing cross section and gain. ...

  7. New Rare-Earth-Doped Glass Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers for 1.54 um Communications

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Kigre's Phase I fiber amplifier development effort demonstrated 10dB of internal gain at 1.54um from 2.2 cm long section of MM-2 erbium ytterbium phosphate fiber amplifier pumped at 980nm. 26dB of gain was also produced from a 8.8com long section of thissame fiber pumped at 1480nm. Mode field image testing of a fiber show this MM-2 fiber to be perfect 1.54um single mode containment match to stan ...

  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. 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 ...
