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. High Power PM Fiber Laser Coupler


    Fiber lasers have emerged as a promising technology for future high energy laser (HEL) weapons systems, having demonstrated single mode, CW operation at 10kW power level and high electrical to optical conversion efficiency (>25%). However, commercial fiber lasers are not practical for beam combining to obtain the higher power (100kW) levels required for future weapons systems without sacrificing ...

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

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

    A versatile and portable instrument for stray light detection and diagnosis at both visible and infrared wavelengths will be designed, built, and demonstrated. The core idea of the proposed approach is to use subaperture, rather than full aperture, illumination for stray light detection. The subaperture approach uses a scanning pencil beam (SPB) that provides information about the location of a s ...

  3. Thermal Protective Coatings for Interceptor Missiles

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA09007

    This SBIR project will address the combined effects of aerothermal heating, rain erosion, and moisture and gas diffusion on the degradation of interceptor missile radomes designed for hypersonic travel. A novel method of protecting hypersonic interceptor missiles from the rigors experienced at velocities several times the speed of sound is proposed. The technology is based on the conversion of a ...

  6. Integrated Thermal Management and Wafer-Scale Packaging for High-Power VCSELs

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T011

    Aerius Photonics is proposing to develop high-power Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) and arrays on 4” substrates with an integrated thermal management approach to improve the thermal performance on an entirely wafer-level manufacturing compatible process. This is critical as waste heat and wafer-scale manufacturing approaches are driving factors for performance and costs in a la ...

  7. Photon-Counting Focal Plane Arrays for Active Sensing from 0.4-2.5 μm Wavelength

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA09038

    Aerius Photonics proposes to develop photon-counting, linear-mode detection, active imaging focal plane arrays (FPAs) with photoresponse from 0.4 to 2.5 μm wavelength (VIS-NIR-SWIR) by inserting their Broadwave™ photodetector material into an Avalanche Photodiode (APD) structure. In Phase I Aerius will demonstrate the feasibility of the approach by fabricating APD arrays and test structures ...

  8. High-performance, cost-effective SLS arrays using conventional III-V processes

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA09013

    Aerius Photonics plans to develop cost-effective focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on InAs/GaSb strained layer superlattice (SLS) structures for long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) wavelength applications. Presently, the majority of arrays are fabricated in academic or laboratory environments. Building on their expertise in building large InGaAs arrays, Aerius will develop wafer processes that are str ...

  10. Development and Packaging of Radiation Immune Nano-Diamond Integrated Circuits for Advanced Interceptor Avionics

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: MDA09006

    The goal of this program is to develop nanosacle electronics and packaging technology that is hardened to space and nuclear radiation. Vanderbilt will assist AET in the development of packaging technologies for lateral emission-based diamond devices characterized for temperature insensitivity and radiation hardness. A laterally configured diamond emission device can offer significant advantages ...
