  1. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Solid State Ceramics, Inc.            Topic: MDA16010

    Phase II will exit with a new and substantially test-rig validated new solid-state integrated propulsion control valve actuator design for Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS) that present a unique engineering challenge in that they need to fit in tight volumes, require very high performance and are subject to extreme temperatures that fills the void of providing a highly engineered but simp ...

  3. Metallized Ceramic-Based Structural Insulators

    SBC: Plus Designs, Inc.            Topic: MDA16020

    An ideal structural insulator will not outgas, will not change significantly with respect to material properties and geometry during elevated temperature exposure, will have the necessary thermal conductivity/diffusivity for insulating purposes, and will have the necessary stiffness to provide proper support.Metallized ceramic-based structural insulators are anticipated to offer improved performan ...

  4. Miniaturized Programmable Signal Generator for Beacon Applications

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA16023

    Todays newer weapons systems are being designed with small platforms which may not have the space or power delivery systems necessary to support a full complement of electronics desired, such as electronic beacon systems.However, certain platform types, such as the missile defense system (MDS), have an inherent need to have these types of beacon system present to support mission requirements.A nee ...

  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. Thin-Ply Composite Missile Structures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA17T004

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has multiple system platforms to defeat an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM).The MDAs solution for defeating a midcourse threat is the Ground-Based Midcourse Interceptor (GMI).The GMI is comprised of the Orbital Boost Vehicle (OBV) and an Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV), developed by Orbital ATK and Raytheon respectively.The OBV carries the EKV to the ICB ...

  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. Advanced Optic Materials for Endo-Atmospheric Seeker Windows

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA17005

    The MDA requires EO/IR window technology that can perform and endure under the high-temperatures and high-heating rates (thermal shock) experienced by endo-atmospheric seeker missiles.Nokomis proposes a phase-engineered spinel-based window solution that utilizes proven techniques for achieving extreme thermal shock resistance.Nokomis will produce a EO/IR transparent ceramic material that is able t ...

  9. Hyper-Velocity Projectile (HVP) Warhead Optimization for Lethality

    SBC: DE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA18003

    We propose to develop a directional side-projecting fragment warhead for the Hypervelocity Projectile (HVP). The warhead takes advantage of the HVPs ability to maneuver, including roll, to deliver a dense pattern of fragments within a narrow beam, providing a much greater number of impacts for enhanced lethality. The warhead makes use of technologies developed in several recent advanced-developmen ...

  10. Hyper-Velocity Projectile (HVP) Warhead Optimization for Lethality

    SBC: General Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: MDA18003

    General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) and Lockheed Martin (L/M, Valley Forge, PA), as a subcontractor, propose to incorporate solid-state exothermic composites and structures into the Hyper Velocity Projectile (HVP) to provide lethality enhancement in a non-hit-to-kill as well as a hit-to-kill option.The enhancement is based on the better coupling of the chemical as well as the kinetic energy inside the ta ...
