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.

  1. Improved Performance, More Producible Long Wave IR Integrated Dewar Assemblies

    SBC: WILLIAM P. KUHN, PH.D., LLC            Topic: MDA08019

    A design for a long-wave IR integrated dewar assembly that includes a lens in place of a window, and the associated, deterministic alignment processes, fixtures and instrumentation will be developed. Including a lens, instead of a window, in a dewar provides additional optical design freedom that makes it possible to reduce the length and weight of a sensor optical system. Size and weight are cr ...

  2. Preimidized Powder Towpregs for Low Cost, High Performance Missile Cases

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA07022

    New missile materials are needed to expand the capability of current air-to-ground missile systems. This expansion of capability dictates the development of lighter weight materials that are capable of short duration exposures to temperatures as high as

  3. Refrigeration System with Integrated Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA08049

    The Airborne Laser (ABL) program has significant cooling requirements that until present can only be addressed by mechanical refrigeration systems. These include cooling of the various high powered solid state lasers currently used on the ABL for tracking and ranging as well as standby cooling for the basic hydrogen peroxide (BHP) loops on the Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL). The proposed inte ...

  4. Hybrid SiC-SiC/C-SiC Thermal Protection Structural Material

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: MDA08020

    Thermal protection materials for ballistic missile kill vehicles must retain strength and stiffness at temperatures around 1500-2000oC in an oxygen rich environment, and isolate payload electronics from excessive heating. Weight is a concern, since lighter weight translates to higher velocity and kinetic energy. Further, the TPS materials must have a long service life, including the ability to w ...

  5. High-Speed Radiation Tolerant 9-bit ADC with Low Power Consumption

    SBC: Advanced Science and Novel Technology            Topic: MDA07003

    Based on successful computer simulations of principal building blocks and radiation testing of test chips performed at AFRL during Phase I program, our company offers to develop an extra low-power, radiation-hardened (RH), analog-to-digital converter (ADC

  6. Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Power Inverters and Converters for Next Generation Transmit Receive (T/R) Module Power Supplies

    SBC: Aegis Technology Inc.            Topic: MDA08029

    This SBIR project is to develop and demonstrate high-efficiency, compact power converters based on the emerging wide-bandgap SiC semiconductor technology, which can be applied in the power supply system for next generation GaN-based radar T/R modules. Wide-bandgap SiC power devices have the potential for reliable operations at higher voltages, higher frequencies and higher junction temperatures, t ...

  7. ROIC for Hybrid, Coherent and Direct-Detect Flash Ladar Receivers

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T004

    Development efforts for hybrid Flash Ladar receivers are underway, however a common limitation is the lack of an appropriate Readout Integrated Circuit (ROIC) to amplify and condition the hybrid Flash Ladar signals. Though Flash Ladar ROICs exist for direct-detect mode and concepts are under development for coherent mode, due to the relative immaturity of the hybrid-mode approach, hybrid-mode ROIC ...

  8. Broad Spectral Range Detectors for Vis/SWIR Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA07001

    Aerius proposes to build detectors with low dark current and a cutoff wavelength of 3.0 um, using InP-based detectors. These detectors do not suffer from the same problems conventional "extended-wavelength" detectors suffer, such as high dark current, low quantum efficiency, and limited spectral range. Aerius proposes to achieve, high quality, high uniformity extended short-wavelength infrared ...

  9. Integrated Thermal Management and Wafer-Scale Packaging for High-Power VCSEL Diode Pump Arrays

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T011

    The performance of diode pumped solid state lasers (DPSSLs) is often limited by the performance of the diode laser arrays used to pump the crystal. Of the components making up the DPSSL module, the diode laser arrays consume the most power, dissipate the most waste heat per unit area and are among the most costly to manufacture and qualify. The performance of the diode laser pump array is limite ...

  10. Hybrid Direct-Detect and Coherent Flash Ladar Receivers for Enhanced Sensitivity and Target Discrimination

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA07032

    Aerius is proposing the development of a prototype hybrid coherent and direct-detection Ladar receiver for greatly enhanced detection sensitivity, target tracking and target discrimination. The approach employs Aerius’ Optical preamplified Pixel Array (OPPA) which consists of a 2-D array of Vertical-Cavity Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers (VCSOAs) that provide high optical gain and low noise to ...
