  1. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Under this STTR Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will apply novel Plasma-shell technology and expertise with gas plasma systems to shield and protect BMDS Radar. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating shells. When energy is applied across the shell, the gas inside ionizes into a plasma. Theory of plasma-electromagnetic (EM) field interaction shows that, under appropriate conditions, pl ...

  2. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) has been described as one of the most technologically significant semiconductor materials and is the most widely used material for long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging. The current challenge is to produce MCT over large focal plane array size at low cost and high reliability without compromising sensitivity or noise performance. MCT on silicon substrates is highly attr ...

  7. Rapid Mirror Fabrication with Nanolaminate Surface

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T005

    The objectives of the Phase I work are: 1) to demonstrate the fabrication of a small scale (~2 inches) replicated hybrid/composite mirror assemblage, based on the SiC/Si3N4 nano-laminates and 2) to measure the optical qualities of the mirror surface. The proposed replication technique is capable of providing fast and low-cost production of the high optical surface finish of large mirrors. The ce ...
