  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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Diver Physiological Monitoring (DPM) System with Integrated Head Mounted Display (HMD) and AComms

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SOCOM11002

    Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) in collaboration with Ocean Technology Systems (OTS) will develop a diver physiological monitoring (DPM) system with integrated microdisplay that easily retrofits with existing full face masks (FFM) and that leverages commercial-off-the-shelf biometric sensors. The capability to quantitatively evaluate and assess a remote diver"s status will significantly imp ...

  7. PROSI: PRECISION OPTICAL-GPS METROLOGY FOR SIMULTANEOUS MACHINING AND INSPECTION

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112C117

    ABSTRACT: At present, the common practice in the fighter aircraft industry is to use touch probes as secondary measurement systems to maintain tight machining tolerance control. The current touch-probe inspection process renders the typical milling machine idle while features of the machined part are slowly and intrusively being inspected, one feature at a time, over 1.5 to 3 hours per part. To m ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Bayesian Reliability Assessment of Non-Destructive Evaluation (BRANDE)

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112130

    ABSTRACT: Aircraft structural components are prone to damage typically assessed by various NDE tools. Damage to the aircraft structural components decreases operational readiness and compromises safety if improperly maintained; however, frequent inspections and maintenance is expensive. CBM+ equipped platforms, when supported by models and simulations typically experience an increase in operatio ...

  10. 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 ...
