  1. High-Temperature, Lightweight, Rad-Hard Silicon Carbide (SiC) DC/DC Converters for Missile Defense Satellite Power Management and Distribution Systems

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: MDA06017

    Power electronic converters are essential in every MDA vehicle, with use in critical systems ranging from electric power management applications, to power distribution, to on-board servo motor/actuator drivers. Advancing state-of-the-art power electronics technologies through the use of SiC semiconductors will produce significant savings across the board in almost all areas of MDA power management ...

  2. Passive Anti-Tamper Latching Stress Sensors for Volume Protection

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: MDA06052

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I proposal describes a latching anti-tamper (AT) stress sensor (LATSS) for volumetric protection of military systems. LATSS devices are intended to passively detect and remember if a change in some mechanical aspect of the shield enclosing a protected volume has occurred and provide a signal that can be queried to report the change. They are based on ...

  3. Radiation-Hard Anti-Tamper Magnetic Patch Memory

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: MDA06050

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposal describes a program to research and develop a method for producing a radiation-hard solid-state Magnetic Patch Memory (MPM) deposited on top of a wafer from an untrusted facility and programmed in a trusted facility. MPM can be erased with zero remanence in the event of tampering to render the device it protects impossible to revers ...

  4. Advanced MWIR/LWIR Multi-Spectral Detectors

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA06016

    Hyperspectral imaging arrays offer far more data and the ability to discriminate objects being observed. Continued difficulties with applying HgCdTe materials, especially for LWIR, present an opportunity for the development of alternate materials. One such candidate for MWIR/LWIR photodetectors are InAsSb alloys and short period Type-II superlattices based on InAs/GaInSb. This superlattice struc ...

  5. Improvement of Type II Superlattices by H-Plasma

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA05007

    SVT Associates proposes an innovative atomic Hydrogen enhanced growth and surface preparation technique for high performance type-II superlattice focal plane array fabrication. This material system is capable of infrared detection from 2 to > 30 micron, depending on layer composition and thickness. Photodetector arrays using this material are of great interest to the DoD for various applications ...

  6. Freeform Optical Systems for Defense System Optics

    SBC: THIRD WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA07T006

    Freeform optical surfaces offer advantages over axis-symmetric surfaces in the ability to reduce optical sizes, increase performance and reduce aberrations. However, the description, fabrication and metrology of these surfaces can be difficult and costly, prohibiting their ability to achieve their full potential. Fabrication of these surfaces can be difficult, since they are not axis-symmetric and ...

  8. MAINTENANCE-AND-VIBRATION-FREE SOLID ELECTROLYTE CRYOGENIC COOLER

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE COOLING REQUIRED FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF VARIOUS SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS IS A KEY PROBLEM IN SPACE-BASED FACILITIES. A NOVEL CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT LONE PEAK ENGINEERING BASED ON THE COMPRESSION OF A GAS TO HIGH PRESSURES USING A SOLID ELECTROLYTE COMPRESSOR. RAPID EXPANSION OF THE COMPRESSED GAS (JOULE-THOMSON EFFECT) CAN BE USED TO COOL SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT. SOME O ...

  9. ARTIFICIALLY LAYERED MATERIALS WITH HIGH SUPERCONDUCTIVE CRITICAL CURRENTS

    SBC: Superconix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE INNOVATION IS AN ARTIFICIALLY LAYERED MATERIAL WITH FERROMAGNETIC AND HI-TC SUPERCONDUCTIVE COMPONENTS. THIS HAS BEEN ACHIEVED IN PHASE I BY EXPERIMENTING WITH VARIOUS FERROMAGNETIC AND HI-TC MATERIALS. THE ORIGINAL PHASE I APPLICATION WAS HIGHER SUPERCONDUCTIVE CRITICAL CURRENTS BY PINNING THE MAGNETIC FLUX IN THE FERROMAGNETIC LAYER. HOWEVER, AFTER EXPERIMENTATION IN PHASE I, THE APPLICATION ...
