TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
High-performance HDTV cameras are commercially widespread, but are not presently available in radiation-hard versions. The objective of the proposed SBIR effort is to develop and commercialize a radiation-hard, high-performance HDTV sensor for NASA missions and other space-based and high-energy physics applications. Key features of this program are the use of radiation-hard, fully depleted silicon photodiodes to maximize quantum efficiency, and the use of both radiation-hard-by-process and radiation-hard-by-design strategies in the development of the highly integrated readout circuit.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
The innovation is primarily applicable to digital HDTV cameras onboard the International Space Station. Other NASA missions requiring radiation hardened sensor are also applicable including the Europa Jupiter System Mission, EXIST, GEOCape, HyspIRI, GACM, and future GOES and SOHO programs.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
The innovation is applicable to digital imaging applications in non-NASA government markets in space-based imaging and star tracking, as well as DOE and other science applications in high-energy physics.
