  1. CNT Based Microstrip Plasma Limiter

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: MDA10T001

    Accurate Automation Corporation will develop a carbon nanotube based microstrip plasma limiter suitable for inclusion on RF printed circuit boards used on the front-end of an X-Band phased-array receiver. This device will capitalize on the ability to use carbon nanotubes to reduce the size and cost of an RF limiter while dramatically increasing the performance. Specific attention will be focused o ...

  2. Fast Thermal Calculations for Responsive Targets in Support of Real-Time Scene Generation

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA10T003

    In order to provide the required simulation frame rates we propose to decouple the incident flux calculations from a simple thermal response model. We propose to develop a table-lookup methodology based on high fidelity precomputed environmental and eventually aerothermal fluxes which can be draw in real time to drive the thermal response model. A simple 1-D thermal calculation based on an analyt ...

  3. Fast Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: MDA10T003

    The AEgis Technologies Group proposes to develop an innovative real-time thermal solver solution to model hardbody thermal histories. This thermal solver solution will consider the relevant phenomenology associated with MDA targets and other associated objects requiring thermal histories. Modeling of complex objects and advanced features such as model ablation and dynamic surface areas will be co ...

  4. An Accurate 3D Real-Time Simulation Tool for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA10T003

    Existing thermal analysis tools for optical signature generation are employed in an off-line manner, and are inadequate for new closed-loop real-time system simulations being pursued by MDA. This STTR project aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative simulation tool for the automatic generation and subsequent computation of reduced thermal models for accurate, real-time analysis of complex 3D ...

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

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA10T004

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

  6. Microelectronics Component Adhesive Selection and Design Rules for Failure Avoidance

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA14T002

    Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of failure in microelectronics, which raises reliability concerns for MDA and its system integrators. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a physics based modeling and testing protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditions to stress ...

  7. Rapid Development of Weapon Payloads via Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A001

    MATSYS proposes to adapt emerging additive manufacturing techniques (so-called 3-D Printing) for use with reactive structural materials and demonstrate this capability to rapidly fabricate reactive case. Our concept incorporates two major manufacturing steps: 3D printing of green compacts from pure Al or Al-based reactive powder blend; and Microwave (MW) sintering of green compacts into net-shaped ...

  8. Self-fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials (SF-SRM) for High Combustion Efficiency

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A002

    MATSYS proposes to develop, test and evaluate a scalable metal-based reactive structural material that will self-fragment to micron or sub-micron scale fuel particles when subjected to explosive shock loading, resulting in significantly enhanced metal combustion efficiency. Use of reactive material casings offers the potential for several-fold increases in blast and overpressure by generating rapi ...

  9. Innovative Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Technology Nodes

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...

  10. Contextual Reasoning for Object Identification

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA15T001

    This Small Business Technology Transfer project will develop a mathematical framework and enabling technologies for context-aware target classification and selection for missile defense systems in the presence of counter-measures and clutter in realistic scenarios. Based on statistical relationship learning (SRL) methodology, the proposed framework can reason simultaneously about multiple entries ...
