  3. Failure Avoidance in Microelectronics Due to Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) Mismatch of Substrates and Adhesives

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA14T002

    The reliability of electronic packages is of paramount concern in todays electronics industry, and ensuring their thermomechanical integrity is necessary to achieve this reliability. However, this task has become more challenging with miniaturization and the introduction of new materials. Thermal stresses in electronic packages continue to be one of the leading causes of device failure. The pro ...

  4. Portable, Multi-modal Nonlinear Elastic Wave Spectroscopy- Sonic Infrared (NEWS-SIR) System for Manufacturing Defects Characterization

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA13016

    We propose to further design, develop and test a portable, multi-modal, reliable and sensitive non-destructive inspection (NDI) tool (NEWS-SIR) for in-process and post-production assessment of manufacturing defects in metallic and composite system components. It is able to scan over large scale structures with complex geometries and is much more sensitive to micro-damages than the most commonly u ...

  5. Onboard Flash Compensation

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA13002

    An unexpected thermal event, such as the motor of a companion missile or destruction of a nearby target could interfere with a missile defense seekers sensor. In a raid situation, the density of targets makes these flash events more likely. Modeling such flash events will enable evaluation and mitigation of their actual impact on system performance. IAI has successfully completed phase I of this ...
