  1. 15 kV High Power Silicon Carbide Diodes

    SBC: EXTREME DEVICES INCOPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Diode rectifiers are one of the basic building blocks of any power system, ranging from common household appliances to motor controllers to power distribution systems to advanced military weapons and vehicles. Silicon technology for high voltage diodes islimited to ~9 kV. For higher voltage applications, multiple diodes must be used in series, raising the problems of uniform voltage distribution ...

  2. A Compact, Battery-Powered RF Generator for UAV Payloads

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Applied Physical Electronics, L. C. (APELC) offers a portable, battery-powered RF generator well suited for UAV payloads, laboratory or field use. This proposed system would build on the current success of APELC's current Phase II efforts, in which largerimpulse generators are being developed. This proposed system will incorporate those successes to generate an impulse of microwave energy, at ver ...

  3. Aft Looking Spectrometer for Plume Characterization and Waking on Re-entry

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: MDA16016

    We propose a hyperspectral imager for aft-looking wake and plume characterization. The payload is designed to operate with existing COTS components and has no moving parts. The high spectral resolution will provide atomic and molecular emission lines, and the spatial resolution will produce a spatial map of these excitations.

  5. Development of Boron Nitride-Based Capacitors for High-Energy Density High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Integrated Micro Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) are used in high-energy density storage and high frequency power switching device applications. High-energy density capacitors operating at excessive temperature are needed in several ballistic missile applications,electric guns, and high power microwave sources. High power capacitors are also critical elements to replace current mechanical and hydraulic actua ...

  6. Fiber-Optic Raman Analysis for Composites and Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: PROCESS INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose developing a compact, optical fiber-based Raman scattering instrument for rapid, in-situ analysis of composites, solid rocket motors, and propellants. The instrument will incorporate diode laser-based, full-spectrum Raman scattering forcontinuous in-situ remote monitoring of the composite and propellant chemistry. Narrow well defined Raman peaks and lack of sample preparation requirem ...

  7. Fully Integrated Millimeter RF Array Using a Carbon Nanotube Cathode

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation proposed here is the use of carbon nanotube (CNT) field emission cathodes incorporated into a fully integrated array of RF sources. The goal is to design, fabricate and demonstrate an integrated array of sources for RF generation in theregion of 10 GHz. By integrating the sources together in one device, we can achieve higher levels of redundancy and durability, lower the manufactu ...

  8. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The US Missile Defense Agency is seeking to develop innovative architectures and/or high temperature electronics for increasing the temperature capability of actuators used with proportionally controlled valves/thrusters. Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F while the actuator to valve/thruster interface commonly must be limited to less than 200-300F. This relatively low temp ...
