  1. Fast Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA10T003

    The results of the Phase I effort has identified the feasibility of real-time hardbody thermal solver algorithms on high performance hardware for use by MDA applications and real-time hardware-in-the-loop environments. Phase II development of the thermal solver will be expanded to include complex targets by expanding upon the techniques prototyped in Phase I. A new inline Parallel Euler Solver w ...

  2. Improved Multi Junction Solar Cell Technology for Satellites

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA09T005

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce mass, volume, and cost of DoD space missions. However, to achieve higher efficiency and radiation hardness of the best to date multi-junction photovoltaic (MJ PV) devices, several challenges must be addressed. This project aims to develop: 1) Quantum Well (QW)-based multi-junction cell technology that exhibits enhanced efficiency, and 2) Radiation ...

  4. Physics Based Modeling Tools for Next-Generation Lithium Ion Battery Performance and Lifetime

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA10T004

    The MDA is developing the Precision Tracking Space System and other satellite based systems that could benefit from ongoing developments in advanced materials for lithium ion batteries. Unfortunately, the applications driving much of that battery research have less abusive operational cycles than the frequent cycling, and sporadic pulse loads to deep discharge, of MDA satellite applications. Phy ...
