  1. High Stability Composite Ablative Insulator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA14020

    Ballistic missile defense (BMD) systems make use of carbon cloth - phenolic (CCP) resin composite materials, particularly as ablative insulators in the inlets and throats of rocket motor nozzles. However, CCP exhibits aging through increased moisture content, arising from both water uptake in ambient air and endogenous water generation in the resin as it ages. The presence of water in CCP leads ...

  4. FPGA Acceleration for Simulation & Test EnviRonment (FASTER)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: MDA14012

    CEI along with teammates NVIDIA and Altera wish to propose the following heterogeneous CPU, GPGPU and GPFPGA system with the following six benefits: 1. CEI proposes extending the existing NVIDIA nvcc preprocessor to optimize selection of computing resources based on profiler information generated by the application. 2. CEI would propose exploring Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) configurations that al ...

  5. Track Refinement from Off-Nominal Break-Up

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA14003

    The performance of methods for track refinement from break-up events involving ballistic missiles may be degraded by certain unexpected off-nominal behaviors. For example, if the parent object is a rotating rigid body, it possesses rotational kinetic energy that could be released as translational kinetic energy during a separation event. The conversion of rotational energy to translational energy ...

  10. All Solid-State Rechargeable Batteries for Throttleable Divert and Attitude Control Systems (TDACS)

    SBC: Soild Power, Inc.            Topic: MDA13005

    A key design feature affecting the performance and reliability of TDACS is the on-board energy storage system. Current systems utilize thermal batteries to meet their on-board energy storage needs. However, current thermal batteries have several notable limitations that can negatively impact mission assurance. Most notable are their relatively low energy density, their manufacturing complexity, ...
