  1. Hierarchical, Layout-Aware, Radiation Effects Tools Vertically Integrated into an EDA Design Flow for Rad-Hard by Design

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    The goal of this workis to establish a radiation-aware capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation resiliency for DoD ASIC designs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications.Such an integrated capability does not presently exist.The ...

  3. System Integrated Approach for Multi-Object Payload Deployment

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA15018

    The MDA has identified that the United States must improve the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) to defeat the evolving threat against the US and its allies. In response, the MDA is planning to add a multi-object deployment approach to the BMDS architecture placing multiple Redesigned Kill Vehicles (RKVs) on each interceptor. Systima Technologies, Inc. (Systima) will develop innovative solut ...

  4. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  5. Novel Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...

  6. UCDS Propulsion Modeling

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: MDA09T009

    History has repeatedly shown that combustion instability is the greatest technical risk faced in any chemical propulsion development program, with some form of pressure oscillations experienced in practically every engine development effort. The costs to mitigate combustion instability can be extremely large due the need to rely upon hardware intensive build and test efforts. This combination of ...

  7. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...

  8. Compact Modular DACS

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: MDA18008

    GTL has identified an innovative architecture for KV Divert and Attitude Control System (DACS). Instead of mounting a set of liquid propellant tanks around a central structural mast as done in conventional storable liquid DACS, the Compact Modular DACS uses an innovative configuration for propellant storage.The CMDACS architecture has increased volumetric efficiency that will increase the kinemati ...

  10. Hyper-velocity Warhead with Advanced Load-out and Leathality (Hyper-WALL)

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA18003

    Systima is proposing the development of a non-hit-to-kill warhead for hyper-velocity projectiles capable of deploying a volumetrically efficient tungsten payload using advanced manufacturing techniques. Using Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (Wire EDM), the payload packaging efficiency is dramatically increased while also reducing cost due to greater design simplicity and ease of assembly of th ...
