  1. Hyper-velocity Warhead with Advanced Load-out and Leathality (Hyper-WALL)

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA18003

    Systima is proposing the development of a non-hit-to-kill warhead for hyper-velocity projectiles capable of deploying a volumetrically efficient tungsten payload using advanced manufacturing techniques. Using Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (Wire EDM), the payload packaging efficiency is dramatically increased while also reducing cost due to greater design simplicity and ease of assembly of th ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  4. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  5. Radar Cross Section Testing for Modeling and Simulations

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: MDA17009

    The objective of the proposal is to conduct theoretical research and development related to the expedited radar cross section (RCS) testing to determine the merit and technical feasibility of proposed concept. In Phase I ANDRO/Alion team proposes adapting techniques drawn from real-time electronic warfare counter-measure systems, multi-threat response and characterization where direct use of short ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 (

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
