  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. 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 ...

  3. Axial Gradient Index (GRIN) Microlenses for Tunable Wavelength Division Multiplexer with Surface-normal Packaging Configuration

    SBC: RADIANT RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional wave division (de)multiplexers (WD(DM)Ms) fail to provide a universal design enabling the coverage of the large dynamic range of wavelength separations which vary from sub-nm to 30 nm. The packaging designs affiliated with such WD(D)Ms alsomake the systems vulnerable in harsh environments. In this program, Radiant Research, Inc. (RRI), in collaboration with the University of Texas a ...

  4. Techniques for Radiation Hardening of EKV through Incorporaton of Shielding in Component Structures Fabricated from Be/Be Alloy Substitute Materials

    SBC: SCIMITAR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: MDA04T012

    Beryllium has been the material of choice for many Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) components due to its desirable physical characteristics despite its health hazard concerns and high cost. However, beryllium has poor radiation shielding properties against x-ray, gamma ray and space radiation. Parasitic radiation shielding materials must be used in conjunction with beryllium where radiation sh ...

  5. Multispectral Nanoantenna Infrared Sensors

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA04T015

    This 18 months STTR Phase II proposal is based on work completed under the STTR Phase I grant entitled “Multispectral Nanoantenna Infrared Sensors” (Contract No. N00178-04-C-3110). In this Phase II project, we propose the development of multispectral MWIR and LWIR nanoantennas and their integration with an ultra-high speed Cellular Visual Microprocessor operating at 10,000 frames per second. U ...

  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 ...

  7. High Power Vacuum GaN

    SBC: Stellar Micro Devices            Topic: MDA04T013

    The Phase I solicitation asked for novel approaches to power output stages in Transmit/Receive(T/R) modules fabricated from GaN or other wide bandgap semiconductor materials, leading to increased power and efficiency or decreased transmission line loss with proof-of-principle demonstrations or models based on open source X-Band Radar parameters. The SMD/MIT team responded with an innovative high ...

  9. A Novel High-Temperature PEM Electrolyzer Resulting In Dramatically Improved Regenerative Fuel Cell System Performance

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: MDA04T008

    The most promising energy conversion and storage system for HAAs is the combination of photovoltaic (PV) arrays with a regenerative fuel cell energy storage system. This system uses the PV arrays during the day to power the airship and electronics, while utilizing excess power to split water with an electrolyzer, generating hydrogen and oxygen at high pressures. At night, the stored hydrogen and ...

  10. 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 ...
