  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Volume Signature Mapping System

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: MDA07043

    Significant advantages occur in cost reduction, technology maturity, and ease of implementation when using commercial-off-the-shelf components and systems boards in critical military applications. Because COTS components are well documented reverse engineering their contents is very straight forward. The first layer of protection for critical technology is the physical volume that encloses the sys ...

  4. Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA07029

    The task of identifying and successfully destroying a missile threat requires a vast network of RADARs, sensors, software, and other resources working together flawlessly. Information from these systems must be fused to provide with their operators an accurate and complete picture of the battlespace. With up-to-date, fused information on threats and targets, operators can make quick, informed de ...

  5. 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) ...

  7. Long-to-Very-Long-Wavelength Infrared Band-Pass Filters for Space Infrared Detectors

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07001

    This Phase I SBIR proposal requests innovative sensor solutions to improve strategic space sensors. One route of improvement is selective band-pass filtering of radiation before it reaches the detector. Such filtering can improve detection by blocking out-of-band interferences and allowing transmission of the desired spectral components. Filtering can improve a cheaper detector with a broader d ...

  9. An Advanced Thermal Management System for Gimbal-Mounted Sensors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA07004

    Future missile detection systems will require improved thermal management for cooling gimbal-mounted sensors and optics. Current systems utilize cryocoolers placed on the gimbal, which necessitates the cryocooler heat to be rejected directly from the gimbal. A far superior approach in terms of payload mass would locate the warm elements of the cryocooler on the stationary platform near the space ...

  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 ...
