  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 nanostructure anode and cathode for new class of high energy and power thermal batteries

    SBC: Binergy Scientific Inc.            Topic: MDA15021

    Thermal batteries are single discharge reserve batteries that provide very long shelf life, minimal self-discharge, wide storage temperature range, fast thermal activation under power demand, and wide range of operating and storage temperature conditions. We are proposing development and optimization of novel anode and cathode materials and demonstration of advanced thermal batteries (TB) that sig ...

  4. Advanced Reserve Battery Technologies

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA15021

    There is an ever-growing need for increased battery performance in weight-sensitive and volume-constrained applications. Also needed is the ability to develop batteries with non-standard form factors to accommodate tight size constraints. Erigo and our collaborators at EaglePicher Technologies propose to develop a thermal battery by leveraging advances in cathode formulations, fabrication techni ...

  5. Lithography Cost Reduction for Rad Hard Integrated Circuits

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA143008

    The DoD faces mounting costs for integrated circuits built with advanced technology. Our proposal addresses mixed-signal ASIC design costs and fabrication costs, notably photomask costs and photolithography costs. The ADONIS 1D design methodology has been demonstrated at technologies ranging from 130nm to 16nm. In Phase I of the program, we used ADONIS to design a reference circuit a high-speed c ...

  6. System Integrated Approach for Multi-Object Payload Deployment

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA15018

    The MDA has identified that the United States must improve the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) to defeat the evolving threat against the US and its allies. In response, the MDA is planning to add a multi-object deployment approach to the BMDS architecture placing multiple Redesigned Kill Vehicles (RKVs) on each interceptor. Systima Technologies, Inc. (Systima) will develop innovative solut ...

  7. Improved Track Accuracy for Missile Engagements

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: MDA15008

    In this proposal, Reservoir Labs introduces an innovative approach to the problem of orbital track reconstruction and discrimination from radar data. We propose a technique that utilizes radar returns over a much longer observation window than is current (minutes and tens of minutes not seconds), for greatly improved integrated tracking and discrimination. As an example, we extract key informatio ...

  8. InGaAs SWIR Seeker Sensor System for a Projectile Based Kill Vehicle

    SBC: Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA13026

    An uncooled Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) imaging system will be developed for insertion in a hypersonic gun launch interceptor. The 640x512 10um pitch SWIR imaging system (detection from 0.7-1.7um) will provide unique capabilities for the kill vehicle. Functionality of the imager includes the ability to track the target with and without targeting lasers using a very high frame rate imager with regi ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (
