  3. Solid Propellant Infrared Reduction At Launch (SPIRAL)

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: MDA20T001

    During the proposed Phase I research and development effort, the project team will use analysis and hot-fire testing to establish the feasibility of an approach to solid propellant formulation that greatly reduces the exhaust Infrared (IR) signature of the rocket motor while maintaining the thrust-to-mass-ratio of the existing, baseline solid propellant. The project team will formulate an array of ...

  4. Bio-inspired Autonomous Neuromorphic Detector for Identification and Tracking (BANDIT)

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: MDA20T003

    Biological vision systems capture and process extremely complex environments with high accuracy. Whereas conventional imaging systems require large amounts of memory and power to run, bio-inspired systems can maintain performance while reducing the size, weight, and power requirements. In this project, Areté proposes the development of a fully bio-inspired vision system for missile detection and ...

  5. Bio-inspired Sensors

    SBC: Quantum Ventura, Inc.            Topic: MDA20T003

    We are proposing to develop Neuro-IR Tracker, a system design for a bio-inspired sensor optimized to detect hypersonic missile targets. In Phase 1, we will design and assess the feasibility of a novel bio-inspired sensing system which includes Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) microbolometer imager (MMI), brain-inspired image processor and realtime software detection tools. We will estimate ...

  6. Autonomous Missile Detection Using Bio-Inspired Sensors

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: MDA20T003

    Attollo is proposing a read-out integrated circuit (ROIC), detector, and camera that will leverage a bio-inspired approach to seeing and processing a threat detection image. Processing only change detection within the Field of View (FOV) will save in transmission and processing of the sensor data reducing latency while also improving threat detection. Attollo will hybridize our Strained Layer Supe ...

  7. Compact, Transportable Racetrack Cyclotron for Heavy-Ion Radiation Testing of Electronics

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA20T005

    There is a growing need to study the effects of radiation in space and during high-altitude flights on electronic systems. The ever increasing need for ground based testing has outstripped the supply of available accelerator facilities at which to perform this testing. In response to this problem, RadiaBeam, along with collaborators at Michigan State University and Particle Accelerator Corporation ...

  8. Resilient Control Electronics

    SBC: Iris Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA17T003

    As the orbital space around the earth gets more and more crowded with civilian and military reconnaissance, weather, tracking, communication, and navigation satellites - civilian and military users become increasingly dependent on the services provided by these spacecraft. This situation increases the possibility of offense actions against some or all of these spacecraft. The possibility calls for ...

  9. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics


    The objective of this project is to develop a capability to model fracture of materials used in hypersonic vehicles that results from hypervelocity impact while exposed to extreme temperatures. Symplectic Engineering’s approach addresses this challenge at two levels. At the computational level, a Relaxed Extended Finite Element approach is pursued to represent (possibly intersecting) fractures l ...

  10. Tilt-Nose Control System Development for High-Speed Stratospheric Interceptors

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T002

    Recent advances in the hypersonic system capabilities of adversary nations threaten the battlespace supremacy of US forces. Missile defense systems capable of extended high-g maneuvering at stratospheric altitudes and hypersonic Mach numbers will provide the MDA with additional flexibility in defending the US against emerging hypersonic threats. A key enabling technology for the deployment of such ...
