Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-053
Budget: 05/24/06 - 05/25/08

Tessera, Inc. and Lockheed Martin Corporation are currently developing an advanced systolic array missile seeker system for massively parallel resolution of IR images for end-game targeting. The program involves the utilization of Tessera s high density advanced packaging to allow expansion from the 1024 processing elements on the current Lockhe...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB032-051
Budget: 08/12/05 - 08/31/07

The goal of the Tessera s Phase II work proposed here is to demonstrate the effectiveness of advanced packaging technology for miniaturizing a nanosatellite C&DH sub-system. The key objectives along the path to this goal are: 1) re-designing an existing small satellite C&DH sub-system with advanced packaging technology, 2) fabricating proto...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-049
Budget: 07/15/04 - 07/15/06

Increasing the density of seeker focal plane processing elements is critical to achieving multi-color, fine grained end-game target resolution and LADAR processing capabilities for missile interceptors. The objective of this research project is to continue development of new package stacking and interposer interconnect that allows 3-dimensional ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-053
Budget: 05/17/04 - 11/16/04

This proposal responds to SBIR MDA04-53 and offers a method to develop advanced image processing software and the required test platform hardware to support high resolution and two-color infrared (IR) imagery for improved seeker target detection and discrimination. Phase I efforts will focus on development of a preliminary test platform hardware...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-042
Budget: 05/15/04 - 02/15/05

Typical surveillance and seeker information processing platforms today use general-purpose computer architectures or custom, application specific architectures to execute signal-processing algorithms specific to a particular application (image/signal processing, data compression, encryption/decryption). The commodity architecture severely limit...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB032-051
Budget: 03/13/04 - 09/30/04

Tessera, Inc. will design a miniature Command and Data Handling (C&DH) subsystem module for use in nanosatellites. Working with requirements information supplied by nanosatellite systems experts, Tessera will apply stacked chip scale package (CSP) and system-in-a-package (SiP) designs to C&DH digital components to produce a module design for a v...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-183
Budget: 11/12/03 - 05/12/04

Tessera proposes to repackage an existing BEAM radio in a miniature, lightweight form factor. Tessera would use state of the art advanced semiconductor packaging techniques developed by Tessera. A partner with an existing radio design would be selected and advanced 3D packaging technology would be applied to reduce the size and weight to approxi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-049
Budget: 08/01/03 - 02/01/04

Tessera Technologies will demonstrate the feasibility of applying stacked package and system-in-a-package designs to FPGA and RAM devices for single board systolic arrays for next generation missile defense. Working with Lockheed Martin, Tessera will develop a detailed system-in-a-package design for the FPGA and RAM combination properly configur...
