  1. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Hypersonic Signatures

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T003

    The flight and environment conditions encountered by vehicles operating in the Mach 10 to 20+, or high hypersonic, regime are complex and difficult to model. Under such conditions, ablating heat shield material is entrained in the flow in the form of gases and particulates and reactive chemistry between atmospheric and ablating species creates a non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) environme ...

  2. Transparent Silicone Carbide Seeker Windows

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA17005

    The benefit to DOD is the ability to increase the performance capabilities of missile interceptors.The primary market for the proposed technology is for missile EO/IR windows and domes for seekers and interceptors for DOD prime contractors, which we estimate be more than $21,000,000.Other potential markets are body armor, windows for high power lasers, rugged widows for LIDAR for automobiles and a ...

  5. Dual-Band Datalink Antenna System for BMD Assets (1000-483)

    SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA13006

    SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to design and develop an improved dual-band datalink antenna suite for various BMD platforms. We will leverage our validated Phase II X-band datalink antenna design, as well as our initial S-band datalink antenna design to refine and optimize a form-factor dual-band antenna suite for the guidance section of various BMD platforms. The proposed antenna suite is ...

  6. The Use of Hydrogen for Defect Reduction in Large Format Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    Active defects negatively impact the performance of IRFPAs by increasing noise at various levels up to, and including, catastrophic degradation. Evidence indicates that"killer defects"are related to the interaction of open core screw dislocations with impurities that remain after substrate preparation, prior to HgCdTe growth. This impurity diffusion creates a conducting channel that shorts the j ...

  7. High Operability HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays on Si by Mitigation of Defects

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    For HgCdTe infrared focal plane arrays fabricated on Si substrates, a model has recently been proposed to account for the disparity between the density of failed pixels and the density of dislocations that are present in the HgCdTe junction region. The model distinguishes between active and inactive dislocations and offers a hypothesis that dislocations are active only when they intersect particul ...

  8. Defect Reduction at the Silicon (112) Wafer Surface by Amorphization and Recrystallization

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    Silicon wafers oriented on (112) are the preferred substrates for deposition of mercury cadmium telluride layers by molecular beam epitaxy. Surface defects introduced during polishing of the wafers degrade the quality of the epitaxy and the performance of infrared detectors fabricated within these materials. We propose a process for reducing the density of the defects that are inherent in the si ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Feature-aided Globally Optimized Sensor Fusion for BMD

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA10001

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop, evaluate, and test new elements of a sensor fusion architecture for Command, Control, and Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) for Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD). PSI proposes an innovative architecture designed to leverage sensor diversity and multimodal feature extraction to provide Enhanced C2BMC functionality in search, track, discrimi ...
