  1. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: None

    Phase I has proven that the current setup achieves better than 8mm spatial resolution for 2.2MeV prompt gammas. However, 1mm spatial resolution presents a significant challenge for the current setup due in part to limited timing resolution and count rate. A new analog ASIC will be developed to replace the current analog ASIC that will have better timing resolution and deliver higher count rates. I ...

  2. High Performance Cooled Seeker Window

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA17005

    Infrared (IR) windows operating in the environment experienced by endo-atmospheric interceptors are limited in performance by the high heat fluxes, temperatures, and pressures characteristic of these environments. Window temperature can exceed 900 C from exposure to the high heat fluxes and temperatures associated with hypersonic flight. Existing materials are limited by poor mechanical and optica ...

  5. Security Improvements for Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)

    SBC: The Athena Group, Inc.            Topic: MDA13010

    In this Phase II SBIR project, The Athena Group, Inc., will develop an innovative technology to improve the security of field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). This technology will be realized as a customizable intellectual property (IP) block that can be readily included in FPGA designs, will consume minimal hardware resources, and will have a negligible impact on the performance of the device. ...

  6. Power System for Airborne High Energy Laser (HEL)

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: MDA13021

    FTT proposes the detail design and test of a prototype rocket-based turbogenerator for high energy laser and other directed energy weapon applications. During phase I, FTT showed significant performance advantages for the rocket-based turbogenerator over energy storage devices and traditional gas-turbine based systems. The proposed phase II scope includes detail design, analysis, and ground test ...

  7. Advances in Thermal Battery Anodes

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA08022

    Thermal batteries are employed in virtually every strategic defense and tactical weapon system. As systems capabilities continue to increase, future thermal batteries will be required to deliver higher power and energy in packages smaller and lighter than those available with baseline lithium-silicon (LiSi) / FeS2 technology. Although ENSER’s proprietary LiSi / cobalt disulfide (CoS2) system p ...

  8. Ultra-Rapid Chemical Mechanical Finishing (UCMF) of SiC Mirrors

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA08017

    The overall goal of the Phase II effort is to develop the novel ultra-rapid chemical mechanical finishing (UCMF) process for SiC mirror manufacturing, and commercialize this process in collaboration with existing vendors using existing equipment infrastructure. Unlike glass and metallic systems, the high hardness and chemical inertness of SiC currently limit the finishing of SiC mirrors to mechani ...

  9. CONTROL OF A SPACE-BASED ELECTROMAGNETICALLY LAUNCHED PROJECTILE VIA A MODIFIED NUTATION DAMPER

    SBC: Coleman Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A DEVICE IS HEREIN PROPOSED WHICH CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO A PROJECTILE, SUCH AS A RAIL GUN PROJECTILE, TO CONTROL ATTITUDE. THE DEVICE, A MODIFIED NUTATION DAMPER, HAS ESSENTIALLY ONLY ONE MOVING PART AND SO CAN BE MADE, TO EXHIBIT EXTREME STRENGTH. BY CONTROLLING THE PROJECTILE'S ATTITUDE DURING FLIGHT, A STRAP DOWN SEEKER CAN BE MADE TO MECHANICALLY SCAN FOR TARGET ACQUISITION. THE ATTITUDE CON ...

  10. TUNABLE SINGLE-FREQUENCY ND:YAG LASERS FOR COHERENT LIDAR

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOME OF THE LASER RADARS PROPOSED FOR SPACE-BASED SENSORS ENGAGED IN SURVBEILLANCE, ACQUISITION AND TRACKING FOR THE STRATEGIC DEFENSE INITIATIVE MAY REQUIRE THE USE OF SINGLE- FREQUENCY LASERS FOR COHERENT, HETERODYNE DETECTION OF RETURN SIGNALS. IN SOME SENSOR CONFIGURATIONS THE RELATIVE VELOCITIES BETWEEN SOURCE AND TARGET MAY VARY WIDELY, RE- QUIRING WIDEBAND TUNABILITY OF THE LOCAL OSCILLATOR ...
