  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. Dual S & C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: MDA11T004

    Missile flight test telemetry has been performed at S band (2200 2395 MHz) since the 1960s. In 2007, Department of Defense test ranges acquired access to new C-band frequency ranges (4400 4950 and 5091 5150 MHz). While these new bands offer a substantial increase in the total bandwidth available for flight test telemetry, traditional S-band operations will continue for many years, due in part ...

  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. Multi-Band IR Scene Projection Display for Scene Simulation in Hardware-In-the-Loop

    SBC: Kent Optronics, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T020

    This STTR Phase II proposal relates to the development of a Multi-Band IR Scene Projection Display for Scene Simulation in Hardware-In-the-Loop facilities. The focus is to transition Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) displays to the infrared regime and to develop multi-band projection optics. This projection display enables MDA/AF a much enhanced scene simulation capability for missile intercepti ...

  5. Laser Micromachining of Optical Structures and Surfaces

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T016

    MLPC is aggressively developing the technological infrastructure for laser micromachining silicon carbide (SiC) mirror substrates to reduce both cost and long lead-times associated with current beryllium optics. During the Phase I STTR effort investigation into the effects of laser micromachining SiC substrates showed that no apparent defects such as microcracks are observed when machining over a ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Fabrication of Ta-Hf-C-based Ultra High Temperature Composites

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T002

    This Phase II STTR program seeks a new fabrication method to produce stronger (>100 kpsi) and tougher (>10 MPam1/2) ultra-high temperature HfC-based composites (UHTC) with an outstanding oxidation resistance for advanced rocket nozzle throat components. UES will apply a novel"Top Down"approach to control the microstructures of the composites. This approach will produce a very unique grain structur ...

  10. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) has been described as one of the most technologically significant semiconductor materials and is the most widely used material for long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging. The current challenge is to produce MCT over large focal plane array size at low cost and high reliability without compromising sensitivity or noise performance. MCT on silicon substrates is highly attr ...
