  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators

    SBC: GENERAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: DTRA06009

    DTRA and other DoD agencies are currently seeking earth penetrators with higher efficiency for reaching deeply buried targets. Current penetrator materials and designs suffer from high levels of frictional drag, unbalanced resistance due to lateral forces and localized melting of the warhead leading to shape change and further instability. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) has developed a method for en ...

  10. Optimal Sensor Scheduling for Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA06009

    Our Phase I research involved the development of an innovative sensor scheduling algorithm in support of Ballistic Missile Defense. This algorithm schedules multiple diverse and distributed sensors to perform time-critical tasks relating to multiple moving targets; specifically, to detect, classify, localize, track, support the interception of, and conduct BDA for ballistic missiles throughout t ...
