  1. 2-Dimensional, Microchannel Plate, Anti-scatter Focusing Grid for Superior X-ray Imaging Instruments

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new class of x-ray imaging instruments based on a 2-dimensional, square-pore microchannel plate technology. This square-pore technology could lead to higher sensitivity x-ray telescopes in astronomy, wide field of view sensors for the BMDO mission and to superior anti-scatter grids to enhance contrast and resolution in mammography s ...

  2. Compact, High Capacity Parallel Optical Memories

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposed SBIR program, Accuwave will investigate and demonstrate architectures for compact hologrpahic storage using materials and system innovations to reduce complexity and improve performance. Crosstalk, data formatting, input/output interfaces, and other relevant parameters will be characterized. Both wavelength and angle multiplexing, as well as its combination, will be used to prov ...

  3. Photorefractive Optical Limiter for Sensor Protection

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Accuwave Corporation will demonstrate an optical limiter for sensor protection using two-beam coupling in a photorefrac-tive material to attenuate coherent input light while leaving incoherent light unaffected. Methods for decreasing response time in BaTiO3, SBN, and similar materials will be investigated. A laboratory breadboard telescope system with an integrated limiting element will be demonst ...

  4. Ion-Implanted 2-D MESFET Technology for Wireless Communications

    SBC: Advanced Device Technologies,            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project has two primary objectives. The first objective is to evaluate the feasibility of a fully ion implanted fabrication process based on the heterodimensional 2-D MESFET. The new device, the 2-D JFET, will have p+ ion implanted sidegates which laterally modulate a thin, highly doped n-type conducting channel. The 2-D JFET should have excellent high speed, low power characteristics ...

  5. HLA Federation Implementation Tools


    The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) has developed the High Level Architecture (HLA) as one of the principle components of a DoD-wide Common Technical Framework for modeling and simulation (M&S). Unlike previous distributed simulation technologies such as DIS and SIMNET, HLA provides federation developers, via the Object Model Template (OMT), the means to define the structure and for ...

  6. Development of a Woven Grid Quasi-Bipolar Battery

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new high-power, high voltage sealed, quasi-bipolar lead acid battery design is proposed for development which can operate under the broad range of conditions important to the Air Force. Key features of the design include: Low cost 700 W/kg, calculated Very high power density >1800 W/I, calculated Moderate specific energy >50 Wh/kg @ C/2, calculated Good energy density >120 Wh/I @ C/2, calculate ...

  7. Revolutionary Epoxy Technology for High Tg MCM Substrates

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is the development of low cost, low viscosity and high performance epoxy resins cured by a novel method, for use in multichip modules (MCM) substrates. The revolutionary epoxy resin, invented by the principle investigator of this proposal, has very high temperature performance (Tg of 280_C to 320_C), low dielectric constant (less than 3), and outstanding moisture resistanc ...

  8. Infrared Detector Based on Parametric Amplification

    SBC: Aimm, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel means to detect long wavelength infrared signals using parametric amplification is proposed. The new concept takes advantage of the large gains affordable with parametric amplifiers coupled with the superior uniformity and producibility characteristics of GaAs technologies. The detectors are expected to exhibit responsivity in excess of 12 A/W with detectivity greater than 10(13). Research ...

  9. All Digital Imager with per Pixel on focal Plan Analog to Digital Conversion and Digital Display

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    As the size of staring sensors increase, the bandwidth to move data off the focal plane increases proportional to the number of pixels in the array. For analog focal planes, increased bandwidth also means increased noise. Readout noise limited systems wili be less sensitive, detector noise limited systems may become readout limited at the higher bandwidths. Power dissipation wili also increase wit ...

  10. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...
