  1. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  2. Top Coatings and Enhanced Cathodic Protection Capability


    American Energy Technologies Co. (a woman-owned small business concern of Arlington Heights, IL), will be joined by subcontractorAdvanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin Corp. (St. Paul, MN) in order to develop and fully furnish functional prototypes of two anti-corrosion technologies with the goal to deploy them in a variety of MDA-owned equipment platforms. The first technology is a t ...

  3. High-End Tactical Grade Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA14019

    There is a need for tactical IMUs with better accuracy than the state of the art. We at Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) have been developing the superluminal ring laser gyroscope (SRLG) and superluminal ring laser accelerometer (SRLA). During Phase I of this program, we developed a new design that serves both functions simultaneously, a superluminal ring laser gyroscope and accelerometer (SRLGA) ...

  4. Increased Lifetime and Decreased Dark Current in Ga-Free Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) T2SL through Defect Identification and Mitigation

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA14021

    Absorber layers based on Type-II superlattices (T2SLs) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. InAs and InSb) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, quantum efficiencies from as-grown T2SL material often falls short of the design target, particularly in high-Sb, LWIR T2SL designs that should provide high absorption efficiency.There is strong evidence that these sh ...

  6. A Framework for an Optimal and Adaptive BMDS Firing Doctrine

    SBC: CARDINAL SYSTEMS & ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: MDA02017

    The BMDS is being developed as a fully integrated, layered defense capable of defending against all ranges of threats. A critical aspect of this development is an integrated approach to interceptor allocation. A model-based framework for optimizing multi-layer BMDS performance, developing interceptor firing doctrine, and providing for adaptive, real-time interceptor allocation was developed in P ...

  7. Multi-color VLWIR Focal Plane Array

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA03039

    We propose the development of high quality HgCdTe-based materials and high performance two-color detector arrays operating in the very-long wavelength infrared (VLWIR) spectral region. The fabrication of large format, high sensitivity focal plane arrays sensing in the VLWIR is highly desirable for various applications complementing Missile Defense, Army, Navy, and Air Force capabilities. They will ...

  8. LWIR Focal Plane Array Based on Type-II InAs/GaSb Superlattices

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA02049

    Infrared photon sensors presently available for THAAD applications, with a cutoff wavelength ~8 micron, are based on HgCdTe. These suffer from a high non-uniformity and thus a high focal plane array cost. The most promising alternative is III-V compound semiconductor superlattices based on arsenides and antimonides, such as type-II InAs/GaSb superlattices, which are expected to exhibit higher qu ...

  9. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During Phase I of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for a high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an independent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Ve ...

  10. Innovative Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: WIZDOM SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA02021c

    Wizdom Systems, Inc. (Wizdom) and Rockwell Scientific Company LLC (RSC) have successfully completed a Phase I SBIR which investigated the effects of temperature on Focal Plane Array (FPA) production and operational testing. Among their findings, the companies have together concluded that: 1) significant improvements can be made in FPA producability and reliability, 2) Research should continue wi ...
