  1. Defect Passivation for Improved Material Properties in Ga-free and Ga-based SLS

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA12T003

    A collaboration between Amethyst Research Inc., University Multispectral Laboratories (a government-owned, contractor-operated nonprofit corporation), and Teledyne Imaging Systems (a large defense contractor) proposes to develop/improve high-performance infrared sensors based on Type II, strained-layer superlattices (SLS). Such sensors offer (theoretical) advantages over state-of-the-art HgCdTe p ...

  2. Producibility of Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Materials

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09T001

    The overall objective of this program is to improve the producibility of HVPE GaN through the use of in-situ monitoring during the growth process. Various in-situ monitoring devices will be used: a UV absorption technique to monitor the GaCl concentration above the growing GaN wafer; a commercial BandiT system capable of measuring optical emission from the growing wafer in order to measure the su ...

  3. The Use of Hydrogen for Defect Reduction in Large Format Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    In Phase I we demonstrated a novel in-situ cleaning technique based on UV-activated surface reactions involving ozone and hydrogen to remove organic adsorbates and chemically-bonded impurities, e.g oxides, from the substrate surface. In Phase II the program will develop this process to significantly decrease the density of material defects in large-format, infrared, focal-plane arrays. Electrica ...

  4. Smart Infrared Focal Plane Arrays and Advanced Electronics

    SBC: INFRARED LABORATORIES INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11005

    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 ...

  5. Develop and Demonstrate High Performance Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Advanced Quantum Structures

    SBC: Zipton Labs            Topic: MDA11019

    In contrast to conventional type-I multiple quantum wells or superlattices (SL), the interband optical transition in type-II superlattices (T2SL) is spatially indirect. Therefore, its effective bandgap can be narrower than that of any of the single constituent materials. In general, there are two categories of type-II alignments for heterostructures, broken-gap alignment and staggered alignment (s ...

  6. Advanced Power Storage Systems for Interceptors

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA11024

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a high-energy and high-power hybrid system consisting of a lithium ion (Li-ion) battery in conjunction with an ultracapacitor (UCAP) for advanced power storage systems for interceptors. Yardney Technical Products (YTP), the world leader in cutting-edge Li-ion battery technology proposes to design, develop and test new improved materials for several cell ...

  7. Optical Sensor Suite for Anchoring Debris Models

    SBC: CONTROL VISION INC            Topic: MDA11042

    The Missile Defense Agency is seeking debris ejection data during the post burn-out period of a solid rocket motor in an exoatmospheric environment for the development and verification of analytic models. Currently little is understood of the debris ejection during this phase of the solid rocket burn. Control Vision, Inc. proposes utilizing its current imaging and measurement technologies to gai ...

  8. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07037

    Current monostatic radar systems suffer fine tracking and discrimination performance degradation when encountering mainlobe jammers deployed within a reentry complex. As a result our forces may be vulnerable to attack. During Phase I, we have developed distributed aperture techniques for mitigating mainlobe jammers which are ready for evaluation in an operational system context. To accomplish this ...

  9. Aerodynamic Drag and Lift Characteristics for Irregularly-Shaped Intercept Fragments

    SBC: CORVID TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA07016

    Corvid Technologies is pleased to offer this SBIR Phase II proposal. In the proposed effort, we will extend the high-fidelity analysis processes demonstrated during Phase I to generate large-scale, production-quality databases for intercept debris fragments. Our approach utilizes an innovative combination of high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics for a broad range of flow conditions, high-pe ...

  10. Wideband Sub-Array Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX) Development and Packaging

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA08028

    Applied Radar, Inc. is developing the Single Channel Open Source Architecture (SCORE) digital receiver/exciter (DREX) card which represents a revolutionary step leap in SWAP-C reduction. The SCORE card is a 3U OpenVPX card which incorporates a single channel of waveform generation, RF Upconversion, RF Downconversion, and waveform capture and processing. Importantly, the design is scalable, and des ...
