The U.S. Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground, Research Triangle Park Division, on behalf of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory is soliciting proposals under this Special Notice of the BAA for the performance of applied research focused on extending the state-of-the-art in the areas of SiC semiconductor switch design and fabrication, all for high-voltage (HV) applications. This program, which endeavors to advance the United States’ capability to provide SiC high-voltage high-power semiconductor switches and to identify limitations that must be overcome, builds on the success of previous high-voltage high-power SiC device programs supported by ARL, including HEPS and HVPT, which advanced the previous state-of-the-art and demonstrated performance and robustness at 10-kV and above. Technology limitations/gaps identified by this program may in turn be the focus of more sustained development efforts in the future.
