  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Mitigation of Single Event Upset (SEU) by Virtual Redundancy in Design

    SBC: ALTERNATIVE SYSTEM CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Mitigation of Single Event Upset (SEU) to electronic devices and components has traditionally been and expensive problem to overcome. Dramatic improvements in electronics technology have rendered many prior SEU solutions ineffective and have created theneed for more advanced and innovative design tools. One of the more promising SEU solutions has been triple modular redundancy (TMR), where each ...

  4. Thin-Walled HfN Components for KKV Divert and Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses BMDOOs requirement for enhancing the affordability and performance characteristics of kinetic kill vehicles (KKVs) by recommending a program to investigate the use of hafnium nitride-based divert and attitude control system (DACS)components. In this program, thin-walled HfN liners will be fabricated in net-shape fashion via gas phase nitridation of hafnium articles. Syst ...

  5. Monolithic Titanium Nitride for KKV Rocket Nozzle Throats

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The quest for lower cost components and higher performance propulsion systems in Kinetic Kill Vehicles motivates the investigation of low cost, highly oxidation/erosion resistant materials for nozzle throats and other hot gas path applications.Exothermics has recently conducted tests of HfN components with encouraging results. These results indicate that oxide melting point may not be a critical ...

  6. LWIR Spectral Sensor for Hard Body and Decoy Identification

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Spectral sensing is emerging as an enabling missile defense technology for hard bodytracking and identification. Multiple samples of the spectra from hard body targetsassist in determining the target temperature and become inputs to discrimination andidentification algorithms. These targets are not burning and are potentially at ornear room temperature; hence, the ideal hard body sensor operates i ...

  7. Solid State Imaging LADAR Photoreceiver with Internal Detector Gain

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A lightweight, low-cost, internal detector gain, solid state imaging LADAR receiveris proposed. This photodetector has the advantage of increased optical gain withdecreased incident power. This detector characteristic is attractive for LADARapplications with weak target signals. In phase I, the LADAR specific detector willbe modeled and tested. In Phase II, the semiconductor-based internal gainpho ...
