  1. High performance dual band LWIR/LWIR Focal Plane Arrays based on Type-II superlattice

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA09013

    Tracking and recognition of fast moving targets require fast, sensitive, uniform focal plane arrays (FPAs). However, high performance single-band FPAs are sometimes unable to discriminate a target from its background when they present similar infrared radiation at a given wavelength. This may occur even if the temperature of the objects is very different. In such a case, two-color FPAs offer an ad ...

  2. 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. Versatile Micro/Nano-mechanical Load Frame For In Situ Studies

    SBC: Psylotech LLC            Topic: A09055

    Small scale mechanical testing is often a bottleneck in micro and nanocomposite materials development. The proposed Psylotech system is a miniature universal test system that accommodates rigid materials and soft materials, such as biological tissues and rubber in the form of uniaxially loaded samples. The Psylotech nano/micro/milli Test System (nTS) is the evolution and integration of systems dev ...

  5. High-Temperature Structural Material Process for Oxidation

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: AF112125

    ABSTRACT: Isothermal and cyclic oxidation at elevated temperatures could severely limit performance of high temperature materials and components for aerospace application. With ever increasing engine operating temperatures for better fuel efficiency, oxidation and its interaction with fracture & fatigue failure is becoming an important consideration for engine designer. Under this SBIR Phase I pr ...

  6. Insert ear-probe assembly for high-quality otoacoustic-emission (OAE) measurements in adults

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: N10AT032

    OAE has proved to be an important measurement for hearing conservation programs. OAEs are sounds made by healthy inner ears in response to acoustic stimulation and are measured in the ear canal with a miniature microphone. One impediment to OAE testing on a large scale, such as in military hearing conservation programs, is the lack of a high-quality, reliable ear-probes which house the miniature m ...

  7. Adaptive Thermal Control Material Systems and Coatings for Radiation Hardening of Spacecraft

    SBC: APPLIED MATERIAL SYSTEMS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF093071

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this SBIR phase II proposal is to validate design and material and process engineering that demonstrated feasibility of processing the adaptive thermal control material system (TCMS) that is capable of providing a radiation hardened space stable performance along with the needs of the charge storage capability. Through this proposal the several engineered TCMS concepts fo ...

  9. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  10. Fatigue Resistant Martensitic Steel for Rotorcraft Drive Train Components

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A10035

    In Phase I of this SBIR program, QuesTek successfully demonstrated a novel thermomechanical processing technique to enhance the bending fatigue resistance of Ferrium C64 steel. A systems-engineering approach was followed to identify key microstructure attributes (e.g., nonmetallic inclusions) that control the mean and minimum fatigue resistance of the aforementioned steel. Through carefully devise ...
