  1. Innovative Methodologies for Manufacturing of Lethality Test Articles

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: MDA17T001

    The experimental validation of the DoDs weapon systems is at the cornerstone of national security considerations. The structural requirements for the targets utilized impose a severe cost and lead time burden due to the limitations imposed by the traditional manufacturing processes currently used. Novel manufacturing methods for metal alloys have been established in the past years, but they have y ...

    STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA15T001

    This project will develop a statistical-relational framework and enabling technologies for context-aware object classification and selection. The proposed framework is capable of reasoning about the scene as a whole while incorporating the entire corpus of available information including features and classification labels from heterogeneous sensors and properties of other objects in the scene. The ...

  3. Resource Utilization Prediction and Planning for Complex Simulations

    SBC: SimVentions, Inc.            Topic: MDA17002

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) utilizes federated Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) simulations to characterize and predict the performance of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS).Computer and network resource loading is a key challenge MDA faces in planning and running these simulations. Scenario planners are forced to create lower resolution scenarios, which fall short of BMDS fidelity test o ...

  4. Green Propellant Rocket Engine


    Standard monopropellants like hydrazine are highly toxic and carcinogenic.These characteristics add significant cost, complexity, and risk during the fueling of spacecraft.Green propellants alleviate most of these concerns.They are far less toxic, ultra-stable, and shock resistant; thereby offering the satellite designer a much safer alternative.MDA17-010 seeks to develop a green-propellant-fueled ...

  5. Radio Frequency Transparent, Nanoporous Ceramic Matrix Composite TPS Materials for Missile Radomes

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: MDA17013

    Through the proposed MDA SBIR program, NanoSonic will design and empirically optimize radio frequency (RF) transparent polymer derived ceramic matrix composite (CMC) thermal protection system (TPS) materials for missile antenna radomes. The signature characteristics of NanoSonics radome materials will be selectively tuned through the covalent integration of inner multiband frequency selective surf ...

  9. 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 ...
