The Air Force Research Laboratory's Materials and Manufacturing Directorate is looking for special materials for short-wave infrared airborne ISR applications.

The program, detailed in an announcement on FedBizOpps, is aimed at identifying materials and manufacturing challenges for high-performance, large-format, small-pixel SWIR focal plane arrays. AFRL identified “the systematic development of detector growth and/or processing, with maturation and demonstration of large format detectors, the demonstration of repeatability in detector growth and/or processing techniques, while maintaining low noise performance" as key factors for the project’s success.
