  1. Passive IR Sensors Based on High Quantum Efficiency P-on-N Type-II Strained Layer Superlattices

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA06013

    We propose to develop a high-performance longwave infrared focal plane array (FPA) based on Type-II InAs/(In)GaSb strained-layer-superlattice (SLS) technology and deliver it packaged in a portable handheld CAMERA. In Phase 1, a matrix of recipes was designed and grown, several wafers were processed, arrays were fabricated and characterized, and material and process issues identified. In Phase 2, ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Proactive Risk Monitoring Using Predictive Analytics

    SBC: UNIVERSAL TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: MDA16T002

    Presently the missile defense systems are using a reactive and program-centric framework for assessing industrial base risk. The Phase I effort focused on developing a wide and deep network algorithm using Industrial Product-Support Vendor (IPV) Gen II program for predicting the probability of failure. The proposed Phase II effort leverages the Phase I work and will focus on three main goals:(1) I ...

  4. Sensed ENergy Transient INterrogation ELement (SENTINEL)

    SBC: HIRSCH ENGINEERING & COMMUNICATIONS, INC            Topic: MDA06052

    This is a unique, practical solution to the tampering prevention problem, because even if reverse engineers know exactly how it works - they cannot overcome it. SENTINEL checks the electronic power signature that characterizes a volume operating in its environment. Any volume of or individual analog, digital, or RF elements of any system has a unique power signature on the supply voltage line(s) ...

  5. Conformal Electronics Coating Materials and Processes

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: MDA06051

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to provide a complete conformal coating solution to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). CRG developed a conformal coating under a previous anti-tamper SBIR program. The manufacturing process and proprietary mixing procedures have been developed for this baseline formulation, and independent laboratory testing has produced good results. This formulation ...

  6. ULTRA RELIABLE CRYOCOOLER FOR SATELLITE SENSOR COOLING

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA87000

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE II PROJECT IS TO EXPERIMENTALLY DEMONSTRATE THE PERFORMANCE OF SMALL STIRLING CYCLE CRYOCOOLER WITH INNOVATIVE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION FEATURES. THE EFFORT ENTAILS DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF COMPONENTS, INTEGRATION INTO AN ENGINEERING MODEL CRYOCOOLER, AND TESTING OF THE CRYOCOOLER FOR PERFORMANCE AND ENDURANCE. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS OF THE INNOVATIVE DESIGN INCLUDE FIVE ...

  7. SOLID STATE OXYGEN COMPRESSOR FOR JOULE-THOMMPSON CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: CERAMPHYSICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO OF INFRARED DETECTORS INCREASES DRAMATICALLYAS THE TEMPERATURE OF THE DETECTOR IS REDUCED TO CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES AND THERE HAS BEEN A SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT IN CRYOCOOLERS TO MEET THIS NEED. HOWEVER, VALVES OF ONE TYPE OF CRYOCOOLER, THE JOULE-THOMPSON EXPANSION CRYOCOOLER, ARE PRONE TO PLUGGING BY THE FREEZING OF IMPURITIES IN THE HIGH-PRESSURE STREAM. TO ADDRESS THI ...

  8. High Performance MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit for Missile Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: MDA17015

    The proposed project aims to pursue an innovative approach of utilizing deep learning algorithms to improve the performance of state-of-the-art MEMS Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) to push their performance to fullest extent possible as replacements for existing Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOG) systems for navigation and guidance in future missile system avionics including Sounding Rockets. During P ...

  9. Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Materials for High Strain Rate Applications

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: MDA17T001

    Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) is an attractive technology for the production of lethality test articles due to the potential for significantly reduced lead time and manufacturing cost.However, in order to be effective in providing accurate lethality data, the properties of the AM material have to match closely the properties of conventionally manufactured alloys found in real threat targets ...

  10. Longwave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays for Missile Tracking at High Frame Rates

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA07015

    Missile seekers would benefit from a focal plane array (FPA) that allowed high-speed single or multiple-windowing acquisition of the target or targets while maintaining situational awareness of the rest of the field of view. Such data reduction helps where bandwidth is limited, e.g. arrays with formats larger than 1Kx1K, allowing tracking of high-speed missiles at high frame rates. Readout multi ...
