  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. Innovative Polishing Technology for Fabrication of High Performance Epi-ready GaSb Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Antimony containing III-V semiconducting compounds are particularly attractive for the fabrication of a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photo detectors operating in the long wave infrared wavelength (12-32µm) range. The production of epi quality GaSb wafers still remains one of the important problems for rapid commercialization of GaSb devices. In Phase I effort, we ...

  3. Modeling Operator Reasoning and Performance for Human-in-Control Simulation (MORPHIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    Propose development of a human-in-control (HIC) modeling capability that can: (1) represent the breadth of operator decision-making processes across missile defense elements, (2) scale to deliver the appropriate level of fidelity, and (3) be extensible to future operator needs. To provide this HIC modeling capability, we propose to develop and evaluate a full-scope prototype of Modeling Operato ...

  4. 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. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
