  1. 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 ...

  2. Lightweight Fiber Reinforced Aluminum Components for Missile Structures

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: MDA18006

    The Missile Defense Agency is searching for innovative technologies to implement in future interceptor missiles and kill vehicles that will produce weight savings within the systems. To answer this need, Touchstone Research Laboratory proposes to develop fiber reinforced aluminum (FRA) metal matrix composite components to replace those that were originally made from Ti-6-4. The FRA is able to reta ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Optimized Thermal Battery Heat Regulation

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA05022

    Thermal Batteries are reliable, high energy density power sources that have very long shelf lives. Optimal performance of these batteries depends on the insulation material and detailed design. There have been many studies that have investigated the use of a particular type or class of insulation. These investigations have been useful in demonstrating insulation concepts, but they have not prov ...

  5. Highly Affordable Net- and Near-Net Forming of Fully Dense TaC for Boost Nozzle Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA05068

    Future aluminized propellant boost missile systems for DoD and MDA applications will create extremely severe conditions (temperature, pressure and particle impingement) in the nozzle region that will prevent conventional nozzle materials and designs to achieve the performance levels and costs that are being targeted for next-generation solid rocket motor (SRM) boost systems. The demonstration of z ...

  6. High Strength Ta2C-Based Compounds for UHT Boost Nozzle Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA06T007

    Future generation propellants earmarked for DoD and MDA boost vehicles will create increasingly severe conditions (temperature, pressure and particle impingement) in the nozzle region that will prevent state of the art materials and designs from achieving the performance levels and costs being targeted for next-generation solid rocket motors. The demonstration of zero or near-zero erosion in the t ...

  7. Rain Erosion Modeling for Hypersonic Thermal Protection System (TPS) and Structures

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05021

    Presently, no standard rain erosion reference (code, document(s), database, etc) exists for system designers and engineers to predict the material behavior of candidate materials for sub-sonic, sonic, and hypersonic mission profiles. Historically, individual companies have taken a shoot and look approach to this subject, and relied on past performance for flight predictions. Within the community ...

  8. Reliable Electronics for Space Turbo-Brayton Cryocoolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA04078

    Our overall objective is to improve the performance of turbo-Brayton space cryocoolers by reducing mass and increasing reliability in high-radiation environments. To achieve this objective, we will develop and demonstrate advanced cryocooler compressor drive and control electronics suitable for high radiation space applications. Our technical objectives are to: (1) incorporate components which ...

  9. A Cryogenic Heat Transport Loop for Space-Borne Gimbaled Instruments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA05016

    A high-performance cooling system for gimbal-mounted infrared sensors is a critical need for future space-based target acquisition and tracking systems. A candidate approach uses a high performance cryocooler remotely located on the spacecraft platform combined with a high conductance, cryogenic heat transport system to exchange heat from the sensors to the cryocooler. The heat transport system ...
