  1. Defect Reduction Techniques for Large Format Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: IRDT Solutions, Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Phase I objective is to demonstrate the feasiblility of our proposed approach to minimize the defect and dislocation size and densities in Si substrate based HgCdTe epitaxial layers with a cut off wavelength of ~10 microns at 77 K. Phase II effort will validate our approach with demonstration of large area Si substrate based HgCdTe epitaxial layers with area in excess of 25 cm2 and in addition dem ...

  2. Dual S&C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: MDA11T004

    Reductions and reallocations of telemetry wireless bandwidth have prompted the need for DoD agencies to adapt to operation in more restricted and less desirable frequency spectrum. Telemetering systems must evolve to address these frequency allocation changes, while retaining operational characteristics that are vital to MDA mission success. The design and implementation of high performance transm ...

  3. Advanced Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: MDA07T004

    In Phase I, TSC and the University of Connecticut developed an innovative track handover algorithm which combines estimated rotational motion states with measured radar or IR data to correlate tracks. Rotational motion states are derived from S-band or X-band radar measurements using TSC"s Static Pattern Reconstruction and 3D Radar Imaging algorithms. The Rotational Motion Handover algorithm dem ...

  4. Adaptive, Efficient, and Agile Guidance for Ascent Phase Intercept

    SBC: Sysense Incorporated            Topic: MDA08T003

    The proposed effort will further refine the adaptive model-based estimation and control guidance law developed during the Phase 1 effort to work in a two-tier algorithm with an agile, game-theoretic guidance law that is immune to the acceleration of the target. The two-tier approach is used to bring the intercept vehicle close to the target while conserving fuel but still obtains good minimal mis ...

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

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    The goal of this STTR project is to develop an engineered growth substrate technology that will enable low defect MCT growth on silicon that is comparable in defect density to MCT grown on lattice matched CZT substrates. The layer transfer process elements demonstrated in Phase I will be further optimized to produce low defect density MCT on silicon substrates in Phase II. SRICO will achieve this ...

  7. Methodologies for Developing Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA11003

    Under this SBIR Imaging Systems Technology will develop a large area IR scene generation system based on its Plasma-shell technology. Plasma-shells are tiny glass bubbles filled with gas. When energy is applied across the Plasma-shell the gas ionizes to form plasma. The Plasma-shells are applied to substrates to form large area arrays. The arrays are very rugged, and can be made very large. Plasma ...

  8. Methodologies for Developing Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: OLESON CONVERGENT SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: MDA11003

    This program combines new optical innovations and advanced focalplane assembly techniques to produce an extremely large format, high performing and cost effective IR scene projector. The concept utilizes several small high performance, high yield emitter arrays in a modular format. Advanced optics design concepts are used to optically stitch the separate arrays into a single seamless focalplane. N ...

  9. Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: Cyan Systems            Topic: MDA11003

    The proposed Extremely Large IR Scene Projector (ELIRSP) approach is based on an array of Photonic Crystal (PhC) emitters as the key component. We have teamed with Sandia Labs and Nova Sensors to develop key components and believe our approach can meet all the requirements listed above to provide an effective test system for the next generation of sensor systems. Photonic Crystals are engineered o ...

  10. Methodologies for a Partial Frame Correlation of Multiple Sensors

    SBC: FRONTIER TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: MDA11004

    An integrated picture of the ballistic missile defense battlespace is crucial for properly evaluating posed threats and executing an effective course of action. This integrated picture requires that advanced target identification, data fusion, and image registration techniques be employed to combine and correlate data from multiple sensors to obtain the best discrimination and tracking of threaten ...
