The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.
Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in High-Speed Compound Semiconductor MicroelectronicsSBC: CFD Research Corporation Topic: DTRA08003
For ultra high-speed, ultra low-power applications in DoD space and weapons systems, devices and circuits fabricated from III–V semiconductor compounds offer significant advantages over silicon-based technology. However, the uncertainty in single-event-effect (SEE) response of compound semiconductor technologies forces the use of empirically-based hardening techniques with penalties in increased ...SBIR Phase II 2009 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: CFD Research Corporation Topic: DTRA082001
For applications in DoD satellite systems, devices based on novel nanomaterials offer significant advantages over traditional technologies in terms of light-weight and efficiency. Examples of such novel devices include quantum dot (QD) based solar cells, photodetectors, radars and sensors. However, the response of these devices to radiation effects is not well understood, and radiation effects mod ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
