Innovative Techniques for Missile Defense - Proportional Hot Gas Actuator for DACS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Karl V. Hoose, President
Award Amount: $99,990.00
Abstract:
A key system in the development of effective KEI vehicles is the divert and attitude control system (DACS). The DACS are responsible for maneuvering the interceptor vehicle to its target. A vital component to the DACS is the thruster, which provides effective control of vehicle divert. Solid… More

Laser Plate Butt Welding Project

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
