  2. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1.To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates.Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is needed. ...

  3. Integrated Data Compression and Security Algorithms

    SBC: Asier Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA02040

    In Phase I of this SBIR, Asier conducted research to determine if telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted. Asier determined that two different types of MDA telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted in real-time (no added latency) and without damaging either the integrity or synchronicity of the data stream. Telemetry files from the payload launch vehicle (PLV) and orbital/sub-orb ...

  4. Lightweight hardware design for regenerative fuel cells

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: MDA03100

    Practical use of a RFC for solar powered winged aircraft and lighter-than-air craft has been limited due to weight constraints and the paucity of test data from and practical experience with closed loop RFC hardware. The lightweight cells and endplates developed in Phase I of this program will be applied to the practical implementation of a closed-loop regenerative fuel cell. This RFC will build ...

  5. Image Processing Algorithms for Target Discrimination

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA03010

    MDA seeks for an efficient target tracking and discrimination system beyond the current state of the art. The primary motivation of the work proposed is to offer a topographic microprocessor architecture for multi-target discrimination and tracking with embedded sensors capable of operating in a process real-time manner. Phase I effort has shown that the performance of multi-target tracking (MTT) ...

  6. High-Average-Power Cryogenically-Cooled Diode-Pumped Yb:YAG Laser

    SBC: LE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: BMDO97016

    Department of Defense (DOD) interset in developing laser weaponary in the 1960's. Solid-State lasers have been a canidate technology from the earliest time, but for various reasons, this technology has not been developed to a point where they are scalable to high average power lasers. The development of diode laser pump arrays has improved efficiency, but at a considerable increase in systems cost ...

  8. A Novel Approach to Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Fabrication to Significantly Increase Power Density and Specific Power

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: MDA03100

    For Phase II, Lynntech proposes to implement the adhesively bonded stack technology developed in Phase I in a full-size, closed-loop, regenerative fuel cell energy storage system (ESS). The ESS will be capable of delivering 34 kW of peak power and will demonstrate a roundtrip efficiency of up to 60%! The ESS will include the use of efficient balance-of-plant components, and components necessary fo ...

  9. Electronic Warfare Environment Simulator System (EWESS)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: A00043

    SPEC proposes to develop and deliver a flight capable Target Hologram Generator (THG)--a programmable flight module that forms radar hologram target countermeasure signatures of hard objects in flight--to MDA's Target and Countermeasures (T&C) program. For example, a single unit is capable of creating multiple ECM/ECCM scenarios, different emitters - separated by frequency, phase, time, and other ...

  10. Multifunctional Structures for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: MDA03030

    Interceptor programs are in high gear and the need for advancing technologies to be applied to these programs are at an all-time high. Payload mass fractions are a driving force in the design process of these Kill Vehicles (KVs). Programs such as the Ground-Based Interceptor and Space-Based Interceptor are in need of ways to reduce the weight and volume of electronic system components, while at ...
