  1. Novel Directed Energy Options in Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: MDA09T010

    Ballistic Missle Defense (BMD) systems vary wildly in size and scope and include ground-based interceptor platforms with anti-ballistic missile (ABM) warheads, air-based high-power laser platforms such as the Airborne Laser (ABL), and ship-based systems such as the Aegis BMD system. The problems addressed in this proposal are the traditionally large sizes, number of support systems required, and l ...

  2. Low Cost, High Performance Transmit/Receive Integrated Circuits on a single chip

    SBC: NOISEFIGURE RESEARCH LLC            Topic: MDA09T004

    Traditional RADAR implementations suffer from bulky transmitters with cluttered microwave plumbing and antenna support systems that make systems expensive. Today, phased array transceiver architectures providing moderate power (10–100W) can provide RADAR performance with beam-steering capabilities with modest size of the systems. However, these conventional phase array architectures do not scale ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Software Defined Multi-Channel Radar Receivers for X-band Radars

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA09T003

    The primary objective of the proposed research is to develop proof of concept of a software programmable X-Band radar system using low cost antenna array technology with digital beamforming architecture based on multiple receiver channels. The performance objectives will aim at a minimum of 400 MHz instantaneous bandwidth and a minimum instantaneous dynamic range of 52 dB. The objective of the t ...

  5. Combined RF/IR Data Correlation

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: MDA12T001

    Aegis BMD 5.0 CU will expand and update the Baseline 9 MRBM and IRBM threat set, while Aegis BMD 5.1 will have capabilities against more sophisticated short to intermediate range ballistic missiles. An ability to discriminate this wider set of increasingly sophisticated threats is essential. Technology Service Corporation (TSC) and the Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI) propose to identify fe ...

  6. Innovative Polishing Technology for Fabrication of High Performance Epi-ready GaSb Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Antimony containing III-V semiconducting compounds are particularly attractive for the fabrication of a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photo detectors operating in the long wave infrared wavelength (12-32µm) range. The production of epi quality GaSb wafers still remains one of the important problems for rapid commercialization of GaSb devices. Sinmat Inc. proposes a ...

  9. AIMSMART: Adaptive, Interactive MDA Semantic Model-based Articulation

    SBC: CYCORP, INC.            Topic: MDA11T003

    We will develop automatic ontology-aligning software, leveraging the enormous existing Cyc AI system to drive the formulation and ranking (pro/con argumentation) of hypotheses about term-term relationships, especially where the relationship is not simple 1-to-1 correspondence. Multiple Cyc micro-theories (contexts) will be created, to hold incommensurate alternative mappings, and logical conseque ...
