  1. Radiation-defect mitigation in InAs/GaSb strained-layer superlattice infrared detectors

    SBC: Truventic LLC            Topic: MDA16011

    This Phase II SBIR project will advance the technical readiness level (TRL) of our Phase-I-demonstrated strategy for mitigating radiation damage in GaSb/InAs Type II Strained-Layer-Superlattice (SLS) long-wave infrared (LWIR) detectors.Our mitigation strategy will be optimized for detectors to be deployed in interceptor seeker systems that will be exposed to radiation in the near-Earth orbital env ...

  2. Industrial-quality acceleration of MDAs missile defense simulation infrastructures A novel theory of optimal data compression inspired on the OSF

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: MDA17004

    MDAs Objective-Simulation-Framework (OSF) is a crucial infrastructure for improving the nations BMDS. Albeit successful in enabling high-quality ground tests, OSFs distributed simulations are hampered by hefty data transmissions that could consume up to 50% of the time in a single run. To address this problem, and with the ultimate goal of substantially accelerating OSF transmissions, Accelogic pr ...

  3. High Performance Cooled Seeker Window


    Infrared (IR) windows operating in the environment experienced by endo-atmospheric interceptors are limited in performance by the high heat fluxes, temperatures, and pressures characteristic of these environments. Window temperature can exceed 900 C from exposure to the high heat fluxes and temperatures associated with hypersonic flight. Existing materials are limited by poor mechanical and optica ...

  4. Performance optimized hierarchical microstructure propellant for future small interceptor rocket motors

    SBC: Helicon Chemical Company LLC            Topic: MDA18004

    Future MDA interceptors require advanced propulsion capabilities, with higher performance in smaller, volume-constrained systems. Innovative propellant chemistry is needed to enable substantially greater performance in smaller packages. One factor limiting the maximum performance achievable in modern propellants is the slow ignition and combustion of the propellants metal fuel particles, typically ...

  6. Prototyping of Transform-Domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: MDA16012

    QuNav proposes to validate and prototype a TRansform-domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction (TRIMAC). TRIMAC utilizes joint time/frequency domain processing of inertial sensor data in order to mitigate INS drift in the absence of external navaids (such as GPS). Frequency-domain implementation is particularly designed to improve the inertial performance in high-vibration missile enviro ...

  7. Structural Reactive Polymeric Materials

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: MDA15004

    Missiles produced with reactive materials can add chemical energy to the kinetic energy generated on impact with a target. Thus, reactive materials have potential to serve as structural components resulting in possible increase lethality without a weight impact. In Phase I, Tetramer will demonstrate a new material system with significantly stronger mechanical properties and excellent reactive prop ...
