  1. Innovative Ways to Streamline Scenario Generation Across a System of Systems M&S Enterprise

    SBC: 1ST EDGE LLC            Topic: MDA16006

    The strategic planning and creation of test scenarios for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) All Digital System Level Simulations and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) test events is a time-consuming challenge. As proven in Phase I, requirements-based scenario design will significantly benefit from rigor in the specification and control of common data sets. In addition, capturing the knowledge of subject ...

  2. Fast IMU Autonomous Alignment, Gyroscope and Accelerometer Measurement Improvement by Input Reconstruction

    SBC: Aero Thermo Technology, Inc            Topic: MDA16012

    Accuracies of initial alignment and gyroscopic drift in the presence of fast maneuvers and the settling time of gyroscopes and accelerometers govern navigation performances of Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) and of their associated Inertial Navigation (sub) Systems (INS). Most measuring devices include some electromechanical device, which has a time lag. In the case of IMU, the integration of mea ...

  3. Modeling of the Attenuation Effects of the Ionosphere and Troposphere for Radio Frequency Application

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA16008

    Current environment models employed in MDA simulations are, in general, not coordinated to present a globally consistent environment picture and can be based on functions that have not been updated to take advantage of the environment models and databases that have become freely available in the information age. In contrast, radar atmospheric effects models whose behavior is derived from globally ...

  4. Thermophysical Property Characterization of Decomposing Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Integration Innovation, Inc.            Topic: MDA16021

    Under Phase-I of MDA SBIR 16.3-021, i3 demonstrated a new time-efficient technique, the i3 Transient Decomposition Method (TDM), for generating statistically-based material response models that predict the decomposition process that thermal protection system materials undergo when exposed to severe aerothermal heating environments. The i3 TDM is an enabling technology for MDA and other agencies th ...

  5. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future MDA space missions will utilize small spacecraft with correspondingly small, advanced sensor systems.Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease detector noise and increase detector sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature.The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enable ...

  6. Fine Powder Cathode and Separator Binder Characterization for Thermal Batteries

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA16T001

    Fine powder thermal battery cathode materials can exhibit challenging flow properties which makes processing with automated presses difficult.Granulating these powders can substantially improve flow properties and reduce the tendency for powder segregation during handling and pressing operations.Additionally, the properties of MgO that lead to good performance in thermal battery separators are not ...

  7. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...

  8. An Advanced High-g Spherical Seeker Gimbal Proposal

    SBC: CRM Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA17006

    CRM Solutions, Inc proposes to develop a robust, lightweight, low cost spherical seeker gimbal capable of withstanding high omnidirectional acceleration, random vibration, and shock environments. Gimbal designs progressively become more complex and costly as incremental improvements are sought on existing design approaches. The proposed design is a radical departure from the current state-of-the-a ...

  9. Highly Vectorable, Multi-Pulse Rocket Motor Nozzle to Enhance Maneuverability of Advanced Interceptors

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA17008

    Fielding of advanced missile defense interceptors is strongly dependent upon innovative materials, processes and technologies. One potential area of performance improvement is the nozzle throat of axial thrust systems. An erosion-resistant nozzle throat enables maximum motor efficiency, thereby increasing specific impulse. Tungsten (W) and tantalum carbide (TaC) based materials are being considere ...

  10. Additively Manufactured Lightweight Aluminum Structures for Future Interceptors

    SBC: ASRC Federal Astronautics, LLC            Topic: MDA18006

    The selective laser melting (SLM) of Scalmalloy is proposed for the manufacture of lightweight components on futures interceptor and kill vehicle architectures. Scalmalloy powder has been developed specifically for additive manufacturing (AM) by Airbus APWorks, and has properties that are comparable to 7075-T6 aluminum. Phase I efforts will include a trade study demonstrate that an AM Scalmalloy s ...
