The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  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 ...

  6. Weight Optimized Mitigation to Direct Effects of Lightning Strike on a Missile Body

    SBC: INTEGUMENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA14014

    While lightning protection has been applied to various small diameter composite missiles, large diameter composite missiles also require viable lightweight solutions for minimizing or eliminating direct lightning strike effects without significantly reducing battle space performance. For purposes of this proposal, our team will focus on the development of lightning strike protection surface skins ...

  7. 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 ...
