  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping


    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  3. Accurate Scene Generation Including Atmospheric Effects

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: MDA11001

    Accurate synthetic scene generation is a critical capability required to support sensor development, software and hardware in-the-loop testing and pre-flight test analysis. Current \acIR scene generation codes such as \acFLITES and its predecessor \acCHAMP are excellent tools for creating radiometrically accurate IR scenes including targets of various types. These tools, however, do not currentl ...

  4. Methodologies for Developing Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: MDA11003

    We have previously demonstrated mid-IR (lambda = 3.6 & #956;m) 512 x 512 LED arrays for infrared scene projection (IRSP). With this Phase I effort we will be laying the ground work for moving these arrays (in Phase II) to 1024 x 1024 and then 2048 x 2048 pixels. The Phase I effort will entail the evaluation, characterization, and comparison of commercially available three and four inch GaSb substr ...

  5. Smart Infrared Focal Plane Arrays and Advanced Electronics


    The SBIR MDA11-005 posted a well depth requirement of up to 50 Million electrons for a pixel pitch of 12um~20um to achieve the targeted high dynamic range, low noise and high resolution imaging goal. Initial calculations, given a commercial 0.18um/3.3V process, and using the entire pixel area at the maximum pixel pitch (20um), yields 24 Million electron well capacity when all the pixel area are ta ...

  6. Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing Technologies

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11006

    Current acquisition, tracking and pointing (ATP) technology typically incorporates algorithms, such as the Kalman filter, known to be poorly suited to the tracking of nonlinearly moving targets. Nonlinearities may be due to target motion (e.g., agile target) but targeting platform induced jitter also manifests as target nonlinearity. Current and future mobile MDA assets such as ALTB and ABIR wil ...

  7. Guidance, Navigation and Control Algorithms and Hardware for Advanced Interceptors

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: MDA11012

    The objective of this effort is to implement a customer tailorable GNC design and integrate that design with an existing, highly-scaled IMU solution. Advanced packaging techniques and electrical performance enhancement strategies will be applied to the integrated design, to achieve improved efficiency. Further, performance flexibility will be achieved via ring laser gyro selection to provide the ...

  9. Anti-Tamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11018

    LIT will develop Silicon Modification Sensor (SMS) circuitry that is capable of detecting FIB processing or unauthorized changes to Integrated Circuit (IC) silicon. The SMS circuits will produce key material to be used to decipher CPI data and software. The SMS system is intended to operate as a part of the LIT Product Authentication Sensor System (PASS). The detection of modification by the SM ...

  10. Anti-Tamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Five Stones Research Corporation            Topic: MDA11018

    Our approach for protecting critical program information in US weapons systems from exploitation or reverse-engineering efforts is based on a new sensor technology. Utilizing advances in the field of nanotechnology and the sub-field of plasmonics, our design is miniscule in size and allows for flexible integration with MDA platforms.
