  1. Ion-Implanted 2-D MESFET Technology for Wireless Communications

    SBC: Advanced Device Technologies,            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project has two primary objectives. The first objective is to evaluate the feasibility of a fully ion implanted fabrication process based on the heterodimensional 2-D MESFET. The new device, the 2-D JFET, will have p+ ion implanted sidegates which laterally modulate a thin, highly doped n-type conducting channel. The 2-D JFET should have excellent high speed, low power characteristics ...

  2. HLA Federation Implementation Tools

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) has developed the High Level Architecture (HLA) as one of the principle components of a DoD-wide Common Technical Framework for modeling and simulation (M&S). Unlike previous distributed simulation technologies such as DIS and SIMNET, HLA provides federation developers, via the Object Model Template (OMT), the means to define the structure and for ...

  4. Algorithms for Improved Performance of Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    New methods that will significantly improve the performance of focal plane array systems are proposed . In particular the problem of target track reacquisition ( lost due to cloud clutter effects) will be studied in detail . We propose to investigate the applications of (1) the method of "smart averaging " ( introduced and developed by Boeing) and extensions thereof (2) Probabilistic methods, to t ...

  5. Liquid Crystal-Based Underwater Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor proposes a new approach to underwater imaging that directly converts a two-dimmensional acoustic pressure wave into an electronic requirements fo convential piezo-element arrays. The imager relies on the piezo-birefringent properties of a nematic liquid crystal panel that serves as both sensor and display. The capability of nematic liquid crystals has been established and publishe ...

  6. Passive Multistatic Hitchhiking Array for Search, Track, and Target Recognition

    SBC: Intellectual Properties, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed concept utilizes a completely passive, multistatic, 'hitchhiking' scheme to provide surveillance and potentially target imaging. The concept has numerous advantages: it is 1) completely passive and covert, 2) capable of performing search, track and target identification of air or ground targets (depending on the deployment scheme), 3) relatively inexpensive to develop and deploy, 4) s ...

  7. 30% Efficient Three Junction Solar Cells for Space Concentrator Modules

    SBC: JX CRYSTALS INC.            Topic: N/A

    While 30% AM0 efficient GaAs/GaSb mechanically stacked concentrator solar cells have been previously fabricated, these cells were designed for 100 suns concentration using point focus optics. These cells also used prismatic cover slides to reduce grid shading losses, a feature which is not practical when thick cover slides are used for radiation protection. When operated at 25 suns with line focus ...

  8. Parallel Optical Memory Interconnects

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, we describe a novel approach for realizing a parallel, nonmechical, read/write interconnection for angle-multiplexed three-dimensional (3-D) optical memories. Our concept represents a significant first step required toward taking this critical memory technology from the laboratory and inserting it into operational systems. The concept utilizes novel optomechanical packaging and ...

  9. Sensors-Adaptive Beam Expander

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and fabricate an adaptive beam expander that can be switched between two magnifications. Specifically, the beam expander provides diffraction-limited performance for laser radar beams with diameters of 1 mm and 3 mm. The adaptive beam expander is lightweight, and it has no moving parts. Because the beam expander is an afocal system, it operates on both outgoing and incoming be ...

  10. Plasma Synthesis of Aluminum Nitride Nanopowders

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aluminum nitride is as an ideal thermal management material since it has a very high thermal conductivity and its electrical resistivity is comparable to that of ceramic insulators. Aluminum nitride has thermal conductivity five times greater than alumina and has mechanical strength twice that of alumina and beryllium oxide. The current methods of synthesizing and consolidating aluminum nitride re ...
