nou Systems (nSI) proposes the Sub-scale Low Observable Fly Along Sensor Package (SOLO FASP), a low Radar Cross Section (RCS), low Infrared (IR) signature, sensor platform for use in BMDS flight tests. SOLO FASP will utilize open architecture components for integration of multiple sensor packages within the same form factor, software defined radio for telemetry, reaction wheels for pointing, and state of the art radar absorbing material. SOLO FASP can be deployed as a single sensor for truth collection or can be used with multiple SOLO FASPs. It will be capable of recording truth data of mission phenomenology including deployment of Associated Objects (AOs), target object deployment, debris and intercept related events. nSI will model RCS and IR signatures determining appropriate shape and material solutions with design goal of being below the detection threshold of BMDS Radars and seekers. SOLO FASP will be capable of being integrated into existing canisters and will conform to the AO Interface Control Document. Innovative manufacturing methods and materials will be required to meet the signature requirements which makes the development of SOLO FASP ideally suited for MDAs SBIR initiative. The technology is well positioned for commercialization at MDA, DOD and civilian space market. Approved for Public Release | 16-MDA-8917 (15 November 16)
