  1. Multi Junction Solar cells for Satellite

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA09T005

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce mass, volume, and cost of DoD space missions. However, to achieve higher efficiency and radiation hardness of the best to date multi-junction photovoltaic (PV) devices, several challenges must be addressed. This project aims to develop: 1) Quantum Well (QW)-based multi-junction cell that exhibits enhanced efficiency, and 2) Radiation-hardened PV c ...

  2. Producibility of Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Materials

    SBC: Inlustra Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA09T001

    Inlustra Technologies and the University of Notre Dame propose a Phase I STTR program that, combined with a subsequent Phase II effort, will result in methods for the scalable production of semi-insulating non-polar GaN substrates. These substrates will be utilized in the fabrication of high-power/high-frequency AlGaN-GaN electronic devices capable of reliable operation under high thermal load. ...

  3. Propulsion Modeling

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09T009

    The occurrence of combustion instability has long been a matter of serious concern in the development of liquid-propellant rocket engines due to the high rate of energy release in a confined volume in which energy losses are relatively small. Positive feedback between the acoustic waves and unsteady combustion could lead to the destruction of an engine in a fraction of a second. The situation is ...

  4. An Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic with Improved Fracture Toughness and Oxidation Resistance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA09T002

    Hypersonic missile defense systems are being designed to reach global threats. During flight, external surfaces are predicted to reach temperatures in excess of 2200C. As a result, innovative, high performance thermal protection systems (TPS) are of great demand. Among ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC), it is well known that ZrB2- and HfB2-based materials have high melting temperatures and ...

  6. Contamination-free, Ultra-rapid Reactive Chemical Mechanical Polishing (RCMP) of GaN substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA09T001

    Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrates are ideal materials for fabrication of high-power and high-frequency devices based on III-V materials. The current state-of-the-art Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) methods are plagued by several challenges, including, surface charge affects due to surface contamination, and sub-surface damages, which can limit the quality of III-V devices. Furthermore, there is ...

  10. Intelligent RF-IR Data Fusion using Artificial Intelligence Techniques

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    There may be no more important mission for the US military than protection from ballistic missile attack. For any configuration of sensors, it is therefore extremely important to make the most of the collected sensor data. Specifically, this proposal describes how this objective can be accomplished by using artificial intelligence techniques to implement human-quality reasoning on object feature ...
