  1. Top Coatings and Enhanced Cathodic Protection Capability

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: MDA13T010

    American Energy Technologies Co. (a woman-owned small business concern of Arlington Heights, IL), will be joined by subcontractor Advanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin Corp. (St. Paul, MN) in order to develop and fully furnish functional prototypes of two anti-corrosion technologies with the goal to deploy them in a variety of MDA-owned equipment platforms. The first technology is a ...

  2. Objective Measurement Tool for Detection and Monitoring of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: DHP15015

    We propose to take our hearing-test device, which was designed to support research in advancing hearing-conservation programs, and ruggedize it for use in theater. Five key challenges that make the commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems unsuitable for HCPs, will be overcome. We will: 1) implement next-generation otoacoustic emission tests to enable OAE measurements in noise-damaged ears, 2) add smar ...

  3. High-Performance, Low SWaP, Radiation Hardened and Vibrationally Robust Inertial Measurement Unit Employing Fast Light Technology For Missile Defense

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA14019

    There is a need for new types of IMUs, with better accuracy than the state of the art. Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) has been developing a Fast Light Optical Gyroscope (FLOG) that can improve the accuracy of rotation sensing by nearly six orders of magnitude. Alternatively, for a given accuracy need, the FLOG can be very small. DOT has also developed a Fast Light Optical Accelerometer (FLOAC ...

  4. High Performance Noise-Suppressing Long Wavelength Infrared Mercury Cadmium Telluride Focal Plane Array (FPA) Sensors

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: MDA14021

    We propose the development of long wavelength infrared (LWIR) sensors based on HgCdTe in a novel noise-suppressing high temperature barrier (HTB) architecture, which combines the benefits of unipolar nBn and non-equilibrium, Auger-suppressing high operating temperature (HOT) structures. The proposed design is beneficial for controlling carrier conduction to minimize the number of majority and min ...

  5. Increased Lifetime and Decreased Dark Current in Ga-Containing Longwave Infrared (LWIR) Type-II Superlattices (T2SL) through Defect Identification and Mitigation

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA14021

    Absorber layers based on Type-II superlattices (T2SLs) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. GaSb and InAs) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, dark currents and short carrier lifetimes in the Ga-containing T2SL are significant problems. It is presently suspected that the short carrier lifetimes and some dark current arise due to a native point defect, possi ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Low-Cost Integrated Valve/Injectors for Bipropellant Thrusters

    SBC: BLAINE WRIGHT, INC.            Topic: MDA05067

    The most significant hardware costs on a missile interceptor propulsion system are associated with the thrusters, for which there are typically four divert thrusters and four, six, or eight attitude control thrusters per interceptor. The largest contributor to the thruster cost is the integrated valve/injector. Integration of the valve and injector into a single body provides the benefits of low d ...
