  1. On-Chip Optical Interconnector

    SBC: ADIANT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposed SBIR phase I work is to design, build and therefore demonstrate the feasibility of an on-chip optical interconnector. This proposed device contains a molded plastic optical connector, a fiber ribbon, an on-chip opticalreceptacle, VCSEL, PIN diode (arrays for multiple-channel applications), and necessary electronic circuits, all in one compact unit. The design targets ...

  5. T/R Module Board Cooled With Thin-Film Evaporators

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a superior thermal management system for high-power radar T/R modules at the Lower Replaceable Unit or LRU board level. We will incorporate evaporators into a new LRU board such that an evaporator is adjacent to each T/R module. Ourunique and proprietary thin-film evaporators remove large amounts of heat via ultra thin-film evaporation of a working fluid. After evaporation ...

  6. Innovative Two-Phase Heat Spreader For X-Band T/R Modules

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a T/R module housing that incorporates two-phase thin-film evaporators adjacent to each T/R module in order to increase greatly the lateral spreading within the housing. Our unique thin-film evaporators remove large amounts of heatvia ultra thin-film evaporation of a working fluid. After evaporation, the fluid's vapors pass through a semi-permeable membrane and condense on ...

  7. Wideband Radar Digital Beamforming for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phased-array radar employing wideband digital beamforming (DBF) offers the potential for detecting and tracking incoming cruise missiles while defeating electronic countermeasures such as chaff, jamming and anti-reflective coatings. A wide instantaneousradar bandwidth is essential for defeating these threats, resulting in improved range resolution and target signature. Digital beamforming may be u ...

  8. Advanced Regenerators for Cryocoolers

    SBC: Chesapeake Cryogenics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Phase II will demonstrate the predicted performance improvements in stirling and Gifford-McMahon cryocoolers utilizing a modified parallel plate geometry in the regenerator. This will be accomplished by performing a series of tests in which the dimensionsof the regenerative matrix are varied about the design point to experimentally maximize the cryocooler coefficient of performance. The technique ...

  9. Model-Based Specification and Testing for Rapid Software Transition

    SBC: COGNITIVE CONCEPTS            Topic: N/A

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) faces a problem that's common to all complex military systems and to many commercial applications as well. The time and effort it takes to integrate software functionality into a system and verify correct operation can beoverwhelming and, in some cases, cost prohibitive. Thus, projects seek a process or method to effectively, efficiently and rapidly implement and ...
