SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc. Topic: MDA13T009
It is proposed that using additive manufacturing to fabricate a lightweight optic would result in a weight reduction of the optical system, since 3D-printing provides superior flexibility in the geometric design of the lightweight optic. In addition, the conventional approach to lightweight an optic requires machining of mechanically-hard optical substrates such as SiC, which is time-intensive an ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP 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 ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc. Topic: MDA13T002
Leveraging the results of our Phase I work, the Torch Team proposes to execute laboratory-based experiments to elucidate fundamental micro-debris formation mechanisms to improve optical modeling of impacts. Optical signatures from impacts collected over the last decade have identified definitive micro-debris parameter trends. However, current theories have difficulty reproducing these optical ob ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
