  1. Advanced Conformal Piezoceramic Actuators

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes to develop durable and reliable conformal geometry actuator packages. These packages will have the ability to operate as linear actuators for motion control applications as well as to conform to structures with curved surfaces for applications requiring induced strain actuation. These packages provide a protective skin offering electrical isolation, and provide a means for integration ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Low Cost Avalanche Photodiodes and Photodiode Arrays

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon avalanche photodiodes are among the most sensitive optical detectors available today. It 11as been shown that large area APDs are potentially an excellent alternative to photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) in applications such as LIDAR, nuclear medicine, physics research and nuclear radiation measurement instrumentation. They can offer improved performance based on their compact size, solid state ...

  4. Actively Cooled Minority-Carrier Devices for Power Conditioning


    New power semiconductor device performance is limited by cooling because high heat-flux cooling systems have not matched their increased power density. Therefore, real designs rarely achieve device ratings. American Superconductor (ASC) demonstrated CryoPower+, which cools a variety of power MOSFET topologies by direct immersion in coolants from 77-300K, with boiling where appropriate. CryoPower ( ...

  5. Treatment to Increase the Strength of Sapphire Windows and Domes

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a novel process to increase the strength of sapphire at elevated temperatures. The resulting increase will alleviate strength losses in high performance IR seeker systems such as THAAD and Standard Block IV. The Aspen process will uniformly implant silicon atoms within the sapphire window material. This will in turn pin the crystal lattice resulting in a structure ...

  6. Novel Photorefractive Time-Integrating Detector for the Radar Signal Processing


    Using newly developed II-VI photorefractive semiconductors as time integrator and high performance TeO2 acousto optic deflectors (AODs), Brimrose proposes to develop a compact RF signal processor useful in radar signal processing. The high sensitivity of this relatively new photorefractives, in the wavelength range of 0.63ym to 1.6,um, will allow signal processing using low power near infrared las ...

  7. Carbon nanotube Field Emission Cathode for Electric Space Propulsion

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Low power electrostatic thrusters are greatly penalized by the lack of small efficient cathodes. Conventional hollow cathodes are relatively large and consume power and propellant at a rate approaching that required by the small thruster, thus greatly reducing its overall efficiency and Isp. An attractive alternative to hollow cathodes are fieId emission array (FEA) cathodes. These do not require ...

  8. Arcjet Operating on Propellant Grade Hydrazine, MMH and UDMH

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Lockheed Martin 7000 series and other spacecraft use ultra pure hydrazine for both their chemical apogee motor and the orbit/attitude controlling arcjets. Busek proposes to extend this highly synergistic and beneficial "dual-mode" propulsion to other widely used fuels including propellant grade hydrazine (PGH), monomethylhydrazine (MMH) and unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (UDMH). This will be ...

  9. Distributed, Autonomous, Shunt Protection of HTS Coils

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Temperature Superconducting (HTS) coils will be used in motors, generators, magnets, transformers and inductors throughout space based and Terrestrial power systems. Unlike the conventional low temperature superconductors (LTS), the HTS conductors have, due to their materials of construction and higher operating temperature, higher heat capacity and lower thermal diffusivity. These facts combine ...

  10. Multipurpose WDM Routing Device Based on Semiconductor-Optical-Amplifiers

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CoreTek Inc. proposes a novel semiconductor-optical-amplifier (SOA) based four-port device that can be used as a wavelength converter, data regenerator, ATM header recognition system, and high-speed bit-error rate tester. These functions are presently performed electronically at low speed and require converting the optical data to an electrical signal. Our device is a novel hybrid of LiNbO3 Mach-Z ...
