  2. 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 ...

  3. Radiation Hardened Electronics and Techniques

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: MDA18007

    The MDA has needs for radiation-hardened electrical components and circuits. Thermionic-based vacuum devices have demonstrated their ruggedness and insensitivity to radiation, making them the top choice for space based operation.However, manual and cumbersome fabrication does not render it to circuit integration in an integrated circuit (IC) format to ensure best reliability and performance possib ...

  4. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  5. A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this Phase I funding, the team is developing a prototype ...

  6. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The US Missile Defense Agency is seeking to develop innovative architectures and/or high temperature electronics for increasing the temperature capability of actuators used with proportionally controlled valves/thrusters. Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F while the actuator to valve/thruster interface commonly must be limited to less than 200-300F. This relatively low temp ...

  7. Programmable Signal Generator Module

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16023

    The Department of Defenses (DoD) need for smaller and more efficient electronic beacon systems is growing due to smaller platforms that may not have the space or power delivery systems for all electronic items. There is also a need for beacons to operate in specific frequencies with the added flexibility to have each beacon generate a unique signal. The proposed Programmable Signal Generator Mod ...

  8. 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 ...
