  1. Thermal Protective Coatings for Interceptor Missiles

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA09007

    This SBIR project will address the combined effects of aerothermal heating, rain erosion, and moisture and gas diffusion on the degradation of interceptor missile radomes designed for hypersonic travel. A novel method of protecting hypersonic interceptor missiles from the rigors experienced at velocities several times the speed of sound is proposed. The technology is based on the conversion of a ...

  3. Integrated Thermal Management and Wafer-Scale Packaging for High-Power VCSELs

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T011

    Aerius Photonics is proposing to develop high-power Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) and arrays on 4” substrates with an integrated thermal management approach to improve the thermal performance on an entirely wafer-level manufacturing compatible process. This is critical as waste heat and wafer-scale manufacturing approaches are driving factors for performance and costs in a la ...

  4. Photon-Counting Focal Plane Arrays for Active Sensing from 0.4-2.5 μm Wavelength

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA09038

    Aerius Photonics proposes to develop photon-counting, linear-mode detection, active imaging focal plane arrays (FPAs) with photoresponse from 0.4 to 2.5 μm wavelength (VIS-NIR-SWIR) by inserting their Broadwave™ photodetector material into an Avalanche Photodiode (APD) structure. In Phase I Aerius will demonstrate the feasibility of the approach by fabricating APD arrays and test structures wit ...

  5. High-performance, cost-effective SLS arrays using conventional III-V processes

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA09013

    Aerius Photonics plans to develop cost-effective focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on InAs/GaSb strained layer superlattice (SLS) structures for long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) wavelength applications. Presently, the majority of arrays are fabricated in academic or laboratory environments. Building on their expertise in building large InGaAs arrays, Aerius will develop wafer processes that are str ...

  7. Development and Packaging of Radiation Immune Nano-Diamond Integrated Circuits for Advanced Interceptor Avionics

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: MDA09006

    The goal of this program is to develop nanosacle electronics and packaging technology that is hardened to space and nuclear radiation. Vanderbilt will assist AET in the development of packaging technologies for lateral emission-based diamond devices characterized for temperature insensitivity and radiation hardness. A laterally configured diamond emission device can offer significant advantages ...

  8. Resource Optimization for Battle Management

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: MDA09026

    Resource optimization strategies for engaging multi-stage, long-range missiles carrying multiple warheads during the ascent phase is an area of interest to MDA and the larger DoD community. The ability to rapidly predict the outcomes of extremely large numbers of decision permutations is crucial in allowing commanders to make more efficient decisions in time-critical operational settings. WarpIV T ...
