  1. An improved passivation process for the fabrication of high performance antimony based III-V superlattice materials

    SBC: IRDT Solutions, Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Phase I objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of our proposed passivation approach to minimize the dark current noise and improve the quantum efficiency in the GaSb based type II superlattice detectors. Phase I goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of our technology to fabricate photodiodes with cut-off wavelength in excess of 10µm, quantum efficiency exceeding 70% and dark current density ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A004

    A compact laser driver will allow photoconductive semiconductor switches to be used in small EMP simulator "building blocks" (EMPBB). Combined with a battery powered on-board pulsed power system, these EMPBBs will allow the construction of flexible EMP test facilities with nothing more than a single fiber optic timing connection to each EMPBB.

  5. 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 ...

  6. Development for Radiation Hardened Advanced Electronic Circuits

    SBC: United Silicon Carbide, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T006

    In response to SBIR topic MDA09-T006, USCI proposes to develop the first medium-level integrated circuit for radiation-tolerant applications. The advanced integrated circuit will be demonstrated based on a novel yet simple design SiC transistor that has the potential to provide a factor of 10X improvement in performance comparison to state-of-the-art. The SiC transistor can be fabricated by a subs ...

  7. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  8. Efficient Clutter Suppression and Nonlinear Filtering Techniques for Tracking Dim Closely Spaced Objects in the Presence of Debris

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA12T004

    EO/IR elements of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) responsible for detecting and tracking ballistic missile threats encounter extraordinarily challenging threat and scene phenomenology. Specifically, non-stationary clutter characteristic of airborne and satellite-based sensor systems, along with dim target signatures, closely-spaced objects, and dense debris clouds typical of ballistic ...

  9. EOIR Debris Management during ascent phase for C2BMC

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS, INC.            Topic: MDA12T004

    We propose to develop algorithms to improve debris management for electro-optical/infrared sensors (EO/IR) within C2BMC. Our goal is to improve fire control solutions, increase the quality of communicated sensor information, and reduce communication demands. We characterize the pre-intercept debris field mathematically by expressing the debris fields viewed on the sensor"s focal plane as 2D elli ...

  10. EOIR Debris Management during ascent phase for C2BMC

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T004

    SciTec, Inc., in collaboration with the University of Michigan (U. Mich.), proposes to develop advanced processing and exploitation algorithms and methods in order to improve the ability of the Missile Defense Agency"s (MDA"s) Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) to characterize and transmit information about complex, cluttered scenes of operational relevance. The metho ...
