Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-167
Budget: 09/22/03 - 09/22/05

The exploding foil initiator (EFI), also referred to as a "slapper" detonator, is not easily detonated by heat and shock and is the safest way of detonating secondary explosives. This detonator uses electrical energy to fire a small bullet or "flyer" at an extremely high speed into the explosive, causing it to detonate. Armed for only a short ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-167
Budget: 07/10/02 - 04/10/03

In the past five years, SDI has developed low energy EFI detonators, built with MEMS processes, that have about half the firing voltage of previous designs. These detonators are in production and are being used in about six weapon systems. This reduction in firing voltage makes it possible to use much lower cost capacitors and switches that wer...

Topic: 2000
Budget: 01/01/00 - 12/31/00

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99T015
Budget: 09/15/99 - 06/16/00

Until recently silicon has been the material of choice for micromachined inertial sensors because of its elastic properties. Silicon Designs has developed a process for producing an electroformed metal-glass structures with nearly ideal elastic properties. Its higher density, about four0times that of silicon, makes it a better choice for acceler...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1999
Budget: 01/01/99 - 12/31/99
PI: Unavailable

Not Available The proposed research will investigate the use of autonomous software agents to observe activities within the design process. These agents will be trained to monitor the transactions among and between design teams to establish a standard or accepted practice. This standard will be based on the history of the activities monitor...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF97-209
Budget: 12/23/97 - 12/22/99

Silicon Designs, Inc., (SDI) has developed a technology for building microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors using selective electroforming. SDI uses this technology to build low-G accelerometers that combines a micromachined capacitive sense element and an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) in a single integrated circuit pack...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 95-2
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

Silicon Designs has developed a low-power, miniature accelerometer technology that combines micromachining and integrated circuit in a single package. These units weigh less than 1 gram and consume about 5 milliwatts of power and are designed for use in smart systems. The proposed project is an application of these micromachined accelerometers t...
