  3. Comprehensive Model for Ambient Temperature, Electrolyte-Activated Reserve Batteries

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA08022

    Reserve lithium oxyhalide and silver/zinc batteries are power sources of choice for many missiles and other weapons systems. These batteries achieve long shelf life by storing the liquid electrolyte separately in a reservoir. Upon activation, the electrolyte is rapidly injected into the battery cells, most often using a pyrotechnic gas generator. The design of the system and the diagnosis of pe ...

  4. TORC: Modular CMG Technology for Small Satellites

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: MDA08011

    Micro and nano satellites continue to play an increasing role in future military applications. New mission scenarios are driving the need for higher agility and thus for new actuators capable of meeting the higher torque requirements. In Phase 1, Honeybee Robotics developed a mature concept for a high torque, low power CMG-based attitude control actuator called TORC (Tiny Operationally Responsive ...

  5. Development of Fast and Slow Cook-off Mitigation Sensor

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA08044

    Designed and successfully demonstrated in the laboratory by Mechanical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) during Phase I, the fast and slow cook-off mitigation sensor (FASCOMS) generated sufficient electrical power from the surrounding environment to function a military-standard squib, which can control a thermally initiated venting system (TIVS) on a large solid rocket motor (SRM). The FASCOMS monitored the ...

  6. Applying Distributed SAT-based Constrained Optimization to Global Missile Defense Battle Management

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: MDA08038

    Emerging weapons systems are making a layered ballistic missile defense a reality. To realize the potential benefits of this diverse capability, it is necessary to extend the ability of assignment and planning algorithms and decision theory. We propose to implement a broadly applicable solution that builds upon the general framework of SAT-based reasoning and our specialized Salt, Alef, and REASON ...

  7. Real Time Monitoring of Natural and Enhanced Space Environments

    SBC: SENSING STRATEGIES, INC            Topic: MDA08015

    Sensing Strategies proposes to build space qualified hardware that implements the design architecture developed under the Phase I effort. The design emphasizes detection and characterization of transient events (optical and non-optical) that may impact satellites carrying out critical MDA missions. Our design uses a multi-channel spectral classification approach with custom amplification and sam ...
