  1. New and Innovative Overhead Persistent InfraRed (OPIR) Sensor Tasking Capabilities

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: MDA13007

    Our objective is to develop and demonstrate an integrated capability to perform dynamic retasking of enterprise wide management of OPIR, radar, and other operationally relevant sensors. The goals of this effort are to refine our existing OPIR tasking approach and to develop and Enterprise SRM approach that will allow the C2BMC to achieve the earliest possible launch detection and maintain the high ...

  2. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The Missile Defense Agency seek solid propellant, propulsion control systems with longer operation times, increased performance, and reduced size, weight, power, and cost.Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F.Proportionally controlled actuators that are capable of enduring higher temperatures while aiming to maintain performance and/or reduce SWaP-C will improve the robustness o ...

  3. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. Improved Laser Diodes for Space Laser Communications

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA06020

    Space-based laser systems require unsurpassed reliability and ruggedness, as space-deployment may make it impossible to service and repair deployed systems. In this program we propose to continue our Phase I investigation to systematically identify, address and eliminate the most significant failure points in space-deployed diode laser systems. We will replace these points of failure with evoluti ...

  7. Lightweight, Corrosion Resistant Valve Materials

    SBC: UTILITY DEVELOPMENT CORP            Topic: MDA06055

    The main objective will be to optimize and improve the reliability and reduce the overall system weight for the numerous currently pneumatically actuated flight qualified valves. The Phase I formulations of lightweight and chemical resistant composites will be optimized for performance and ease of fabrication into valve components. Prototype valves will be fabricated and tested. Extensive te ...

  8. High Fidelity Scene Generation for Distributed Hardware in the Loop of BMDS Components

    SBC: KINETICS, INC.            Topic: MDA06048

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is currently developing a comprehensive testing environment to test and evaluate the operation of multiple elements operating concurrently within the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). Synthetic scene generators are required to be developed to stimulate, in real-time, both radar and optical sensors within the BMDS. These scene generators must present to the ...

  9. Sensor Data Fusion: Multi-Static Space Object Imaging

    SBC: STIEFVATER CONSULTANTS            Topic: MDA06010

    The goal of this project is to develop, evaluate and demonstrate sensor fusion algorithms for target imaging/discrimination. These algorithms will require data from multiple radars viewing the object from different angles. These radars may operate in different frequency bands (X-band, C-band, S-band, L-band). The algorithms will consider the coherent processing of multiple mono-static radars and ...

  10. Simulation Tool to Intercept Multiple Missiles Employing Quick and Random Evasive Flight Path

    SBC: PRINCETON SATELLITE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: MDA06049

    This proposal is for the development of a versatile, computationally-efficient simulation tool for integrating flight path data from missile interceptors and targets, and analyzing defensive missile scenarios. Innovative cooperative guidance algorithms for multiple interceptors pursuing multiple targets will be developed. These algorithms, based on the framework of virtual bodies and artificial po ...
