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. Rad Hard, Back-illuminated, SOI CMOS Star Tracker

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To satisfy the demand for a reliable, high sensitivity, radiation hardened imager for space vehicle navigation star tracking tasks, we will design, simulate and optimize a radiation hard, silicon-on-insulator (SOI), fully-depleted, back-illuminatedstartracking sensor with enhanced sensitivity and centroiding capability. The device is unique in its performance and its radiation hardness. Radiation ...

  2. High-Performance Geiger Mode 1.06 micron APD Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional InGaAs/InP based APDs have very poor multiplication noise performance. While InGaAs is an excellent infrared absorber, it is a poor signal multiplier. InGaAs/InP APD devices also exhibit poor dark current and afterpulsing characteristics,which result in false signals and makes their utility for Geiger mode detection problematic. In contrast, silicon is an excellent multiplier, but unf ...

  3. Active/Passive Two-color Infrared Focal Plane

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will optimize the design of a monolithic, highly-integrated, active/passive, two-color infrared detector capable of S/MWIR avalanche photodetection, (S)MWIR passive photodetection, or LWIR passive photodetection. The structure is constructed usingback-to-back photodiodes (one designed for unity gain or avalanche operation) manufactured with well-established, band-engineered HgCdTe heterostructu ...

  5. Secure, high bandwidth telemetry

    SBC: RADIO DESIGN GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "MVSK provides the ability to realize enhanced data rates over a power-constrained channel at the same or greater distance as a lower-rate, narrowband link without the addition of extensive, signal processing or complex and expensive adaptive antennacapabilities. The benefits include practically jam-proof and interference-proof operation, resistance to many deleterious on-air propagation effects, ...

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High performance ultraviolet solar blind APD arrays are presently unavailable. In this Phase I SBIR, Voxtel Inc proposes to optimize the design of a UV solar blind avalanche photodiode array enabled by: advances in GaN and AlGaN material growth andprocessing, a novel device architecture, and monolithic integration with high bandwidth, low noise, active/passive quenching, readout integrated circuit ...

    SBIR Phase I 2002 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR effort, Voxtel Inc. proposes to optimize a high-performance,low power, silicon-on-insulator (SOI) CMOS, intelligent vision-system-on-a-chip (VSOC) that monolithically integrates, without compromising the optimal design and processingof any of its features, nearly ideal high-density,UV to NIR response photodetectors, in-pixel processing, thin film analog spatial/temporal proce ...
