  1. Hybrid SiC-SiC/C-SiC Thermal Protection Structural Material

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: MDA08020

    Thermal protection materials for ballistic missile kill vehicles must retain strength and stiffness at temperatures around 1500-2000oC in an oxygen rich environment, and isolate payload electronics from excessive heating. Weight is a concern, since lighter weight translates to higher velocity and kinetic energy. Further, the TPS materials must have a long service life, including the ability to w ...

  2. Sensor Registration

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: MDA08040

    The performance of a multi-sensor Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is heavily dependent upon data from dispersed and disparate radars and other types of sensors. Timely and accurate fusion of data collected from a variety of radars and/or other sensors (EO/IR) is needed to track and discriminate the targets, providing kinematics and classification information. The use of a sensor network is ...

  9. Calibration techniques for very large arrays

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: MDA08030

    Phased array antenna systems are growing in use within military systems. These arrays of thousands of elements need precise control of the aperture distributions to meet requirements for gain, sidelobes, etc. Errors in these phase and amplitude distributions over time will degrade the performance of these apertures. FIRST RF favors simple concepts with little or no hardware impact that fully ch ...
