  1. Pressure Scaling HiPSOG Based COIL

    SBC: DIRECTED ENERGY SOLUTIONS            Topic: MDA07050

    A one year Phase II Basic Program and a one year Option Program are proposed, aimed at revolutionary advancement of the current technology used in the high-energy chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL). The Phase II Basic effort directly relates to the Airborne Laser (ABL), and aims to determine the operational pressure limits for the laser system in its current configuration. The work will rely on ...

  2. Lightweight Communication Equipment for Interceptor Communications

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: MDA13026

    For high-speed ballistic intercept applications, the targeting sensor must be forward-looking in order to acquire, track, and neutralize the target. Traditional forward-looking sensors must reside near the nose of the projectile where hypersonic aerothermal loads can exceed 1000°C; effectively blinding IR seekers and producing extreme thermal loads on sensor electronic components. As more advance ...

  3. BMDS Uncertainty Quantification


    Uncertainty quantification (UQ) can be performed with existing MDA M&S tools if efficient algorithms are developed and deployed. OptTek proposes to explore innovative methods and algorithms to 1) quantify output variation from all input uncertainties providing distributional information and extreme value identification, 2) isolate output variation from individual input uncertainties and from input ...

  4. Mitigating Lead-Free Issues in Electronic Circuit Board Manufacturing and Repair

    SBC: SUNDEW TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: MDA07027

    The objective of this SBIR Phase II project is to make significant steps toward the commercialization of a tin-whiskers containing thin film coating. Atomic Layer Deposition encapsulating films (ALD-Cap) are flexible ceramic films, with exceptional conformality, adherence and mechanical strength. Developed primarily as a low-cost environmental protection and corrosion barrier, ALD-Cap was successf ...

  5. High Energy Laser Requirements, Analysis, and Engineering (HEL-RAE) Tool Development Phase 2

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: MDA15016

    Nutronics, Inc. proposes to develop a modeling and simulation tool, the High Energy Laser Requirements Analysis, and Engineering (HEL-RAE) tool. The HEL-RAE tool is built from the foundation of the Barchers Covariance Code (BCC) tool. The BCC tool has been well validated against a large volume of field test data in a wide range of conditions with three different levels of turbulence compensation ...

  6. Highly Stable Carbon Fiber Composite Ablators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA14020

    Ballistic missile defense (BMD) systems use carbon cloth - phenolic (CCP) resin composite materials as ablative insulators in the inlets and throats of many rocket motor nozzles. However, the reliability of hydrophilic phenolic resin composites is compromised through variations in their moisture content, which is created endogenously and added or lost according to the humidity of the storage envir ...

  7. MEMS IMU Solutions for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: MDA15026

    Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) for flight systems (interceptors, airborne platforms, and space assets) are constrained by limits on size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). These IMUs are also exposed to severe shock and vibration during storage, transport, launch, staging, deployment and engagement. This Phase II effort will continue research from the Phase I and achieve three main objectives 1 ...

  8. Radiation Hard Interceptor Components Test Methods for Missile Defense

    SBC: RADIATION ASSURED DEVICES, INC.            Topic: MDA07014

    This proposed Phase II program will build on the successful partial rehabilitation of the Nuclear Infrared Clutter Simulator (NICS) chamber in Phase I and continue that work to develop a state-of-the-art testbed to support radiation hardness testing for MDA-sponsored infrared sensor programs. RAD will complete the task of restoring NICS to full operational capability, completing several repair/re ...

  9. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...

  10. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: MDA06T011

    JRD, Raytheon, and Tuskegee University have successfully completed the Phase I effort for design and development of an advanced solid state cryocooler for infrared sensor components. In addition, it was decided that the lowest-risk path forward for Phase II is the two-stage hybrid pulse tube / Joule-Thomson design. These initial calculations predict that efficiency potential of the solid state c ...
