  1. Fast Thermal Calculations for Responsive Targets in Support of Real-Time Scene Generation

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA10T003

    In order to provide the required simulation frame rates we propose to decouple the incident flux calculations from a simple thermal response model. We propose to develop a table-lookup methodology based on high fidelity precomputed environmental and eventually aerothermal fluxes which can be draw in real time to drive the thermal response model. A simple 1-D thermal calculation based on an analyt ...

  2. MBE CdTe on Compliant Substrates for High Performance IRFPAs

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays are based on HgCdTe grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The use of Si-based substrates would eliminate a number of drawbacks related to the HgCdTe/CdZnTe system and permit larger formats. We have developed growth protocols that produce material with good crystal quality for such a highly mismatched heteroepitaxial system. Double crystal rocking c ...

  3. Defect Passivation for High Performance HgCdTe on Si

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Hydrogen isotopes have been shown to reduce the electrical effects of various semiconductor defects. Specifically, monoatomic hydrogen and deuterium passivate the electrical activity of defects such as dislocations in long-wavelength HgCdTe grown on Si. We propose a novel method of controlling the intake of hydrogen in HgCdTe IRFPAs by using the H2/He plasma afterglow formed by flowing plasma-gene ...

  4. Defect Reductions on Si Substrates for HgCdTe MBE Growth

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) are based on HgCdTe material epitaxially grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The size of the IRFPAs is limited by the size of the available CdZnTe substrates and the thermal mismatch between CdZnTe and the Si readout circuit, which misaligns the photodiode array with respect to the circuit during heating and cooling cycles. Having HgCdTe ...

  5. Technologies for Treating Cartilage Tissue Loss Following Traumatic Injury

    SBC: Spheringenics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H04

    Regeneration of cartilage and cartilage repair are challenging due to limited cellularity of the tissue and the failure of allografts and tissue engineered cartilage constructs to integrate with host tissue. To overcome this limitation, many surgeons are

  6. A Nano-pharmaceutical Platform for Creating Artificial Vaccines

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: OSD11H01

    In this project, Parabon NanoLabs (PNL) will demonstrate the feasibility of extending its Essemblix(tm) Drug Development Platform, a combination of computer-aided design (CAD) software and DNA nano-fabrication technology, to produce Essemblix-V, a platform for creating artificial vaccines from a predefined set of"building block molecules"assembled on DNA origami. Given an epitope for a potential ...

  7. Non-Radiological Imaging Devices for Combat Casualty Care Associated with Burn

    SBC: SED Technology LLC            Topic: OSD11H03

    SED Technology LLC is proposing an existing concept of determining burn area and depth based on extensive previous work involving infrared technology. The proposed concept involves the use of all capabilities associated with 2D and 3D Infrared that have been developed by Dr. Francine Prokoski in the areas of Biometrics, Forensics and Health Care applications. The concept could eventually provide a ...

  8. PMHT Track Fusion for ABIR

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA10001

    Fusing data together for target tracking is a complex problem. There are two elements: First, the raw observations must be associated with existing tracks or used to form new tracks. Once the association has been done, then the tracks can be updated and filtered with the new data. When associating data (either measurements or tracks or both) with existing tracks, the separation between the trac ...

  9. GPS and Command Link Assured Operation

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: MDA10004

    Echo Ridge proposes to develop a comprehensive realtime emulator capable of synthesizing a wide variety of waveforms such as GPS, interferers, and other GNSS signal classes. The system would create an arbitrary number of coherent wavefront RF output channels, synthesize atmospheric and terrain induced perturbations, and emulate propagation affecting phenomena resulting from plasma effects and EMP ...

  10. Wavefront Simulator for 21st Century

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: MDA10004

    With the rapid strides in various avionics-related technologies, the need for advanced simulators will increase. Anti-jam receiver development and future improvements in PNT are critically dependent on the availability of advanced simulators. The needs include: flexible, accurate, adaptable, programmable, user-friendly, hardware in the loop operation, precise wavefront simulation, high dynamics, e ...
