  2. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Under this STTR Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will apply novel Plasma-shell technology and expertise with gas plasma systems to shield and protect BMDS Radar. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating shells. When energy is applied across the shell, the gas inside ionizes into a plasma. Theory of plasma-electromagnetic (EM) field interaction shows that, under appropriate conditions, pl ...

  3. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) has been described as one of the most technologically significant semiconductor materials and is the most widely used material for long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging. The current challenge is to produce MCT over large focal plane array size at low cost and high reliability without compromising sensitivity or noise performance. MCT on silicon substrates is highly attr ...

  4. Nanoscale Conformable Thermal Interface Materials with Electronically Enhanced Heat Conduction

    SBC: ADAP Nanotech LLC            Topic: AF09BT22

    ABSTRACT: Thermal management has become a critical factor in designing the next generation of microprocessors. The current technology is unable to meet the increasing demands. Carbon nanotubes (CNT) have excellent heat transport; however, the heat transport across the interface continues to be a challenging hurdle. Here, we have drawn a connection between heat transfer, electronic conduction, ...

  5. Beam Control for Optical Phased Array Transceivers

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF10BT23

    ABSTRACT: The proposed effort is focused on the development of a novel HEL beam director system prototype composed of an array of small-size densely packed and locked in-phase (phased) fiber collimators, which can be scalable in respect to the number of sub-apertures in the array and the power delivered through a single fiber collimator. In the proposed system the basic operation functions of a ...

  6. Innovative Concepts for Lightweight Composite Sandwich Systems for Complex Shapes

    SBC: Third Millennium Metals, LLC            Topic: N10BT050

    The TM2 team proposes Alcv, an innovative Al composite material with stellar corrosion resistance, better elongation, formability, and strength performance beyond most Al alloys. High strength Al covetic is an Al alloy infused with 5% or more covalently bonded nano Carbon. TM2 coined the term"Covetic"to describe the alloy microstructure where nano C is infused into the molecular structure and serv ...

  10. Mitigation of Fuel Tank Explosions and Fires from IED Blasts


    On any vehicle, one of the most vulnerable system components during an attack is the fuel tank, as fuel can serve as a fire/explosion hazard, creating an immediate threat to personnel. Loss of fuel from a damaged fuel tank can also prevent personnel from taking necessary evasive or offensive actions, thus putting them at additional risk in a potentially survivable attack. With the increased threat ...
