Abstract
""Rockwell Scientific fully supports Wizdom's proposal submitted to the Missile Defense Agency, in response to the proposal titled/Innovative Manufacturing Processes MBE HgCdTe growth optimization.Rockwell Scientific is seeking innovative approaches with technologies that facilitate processes that improve manufacturing capabilities, product quality and reliability, reduce cost and enhance manufacturing yields and sub-systems and componentperformance.Specifically, we will be looking for Wizdom and their team to focus on the improving the yield of the Focal Plane Array (FPA) currently of most interest to MDA. A primary key to improving the overall process yield lies in the first two processing steps.These first two steps involve the inspection of incoming material and the HgCdTe materials growth process. We will collaborate with Wizdom to examine the use of mathematical methods such as Neural Nets to deduce properties and parameters necessary andsufficient for in situ monitoring of: 1) uniform substrate temperature during MBE growth, OR 2) uniform flux distribution, OR 3) any other characteristics which might affect ultimate FPA yield as determined in the study. The ultimate results would lead tosignificantly lower costs in production of the FPAs. Future applications will be in two different directions: 1) Analyze and extract critical business knowledge from data - unveiling significant factors, causes and changes that influence busi
