  1. Optical Processor Architectures for Increasing the Range Extent and Range Bins in Range-compressed Radar Images

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: MDA02021c

    The missile defense mission will require wideband radars to perform target imaging, discrimination, and kill assessment of incoming vehicles in real time. Wideband radars generally produce range-compressed images with fine range resolution (< 1m), a relatively small number of range bins (1000 to 2000), and thus a small range extent or range gate. However, there are applications within the missil ...

  2. Corrosion Protection using Appliqués with Embedded Corrosion Sensors

    SBC: DACCO SCI, INC.            Topic: MDA02034

    The MDA must maintain high-value missile defense test and evaluation facilities, equipment, and components in several remote locations with very aggressive environments (such as Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands). Corrosion protection is a critical issue for reliability and performance; however, maintenance of that protection is difficult given the remoteness and corrosivity of the sites. In the ...

  3. Development of Fuels for High-Power-Density Miniature PDE Divert Systems for MKV Applications

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: BMDO02006

    The miniature PDE systems developed under a previous Enigmatics/SAIC BMDO Phase II contract use a gaseous oxygen/liquid fuel system that operates at atmospheric pressures with a low mixture density. The size and performance requirements of the Pulsed Detonation Engines for the envisioned NMD application call for a monopropellant propulsion system that will have a high fuel density. We propose to ...

  4. Development of Lightweight Low-Cost Miniature PDE Divert Systems for MKV Applications

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: MDA02041

    We propose to develop and demonstrate small lightweight pulsed detonation engines (PDEs) for miniature kinetic kill vehicle (MKV) applications. The cycle and system advantages of PDEs will significantly reduce the size and weight of the divert engine system. The simplicity of PDEs will also reduce the cost of manufacturing the divert engine system, thereby ensuring low cost. PDEs will also be a ...

  5. Advanced High Temperature Dielectric Material

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: BMDO00014

    Active Signal Technologies and Alfred University have brought together a broad-based industrial consortium to rapidly advance the development and commercialization of bismuth sodium titanate (BNT), a novel high performance capacitor material for use in both high-temperature and high-field applications. While the dielectric properties of our Phase I BNT show great promise, this is a new-comer to t ...

  6. Advanced In-Flight Interceptor Communications System (IFICS) Error Detection/Correction

    SBC: XENOTRAN CORPORATION            Topic: MDA03054

    Xenotran proposes to develop a forward error correction device for use in Ballistic Missile Defense systems for ensuring survivable and robust communications between the Battle Management, Command, Control, and Communications elements and an ExoAtmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) during flight. Communications in this channel is known to be subject to Rayleigh and Ricean fading, intentional jamming and ...

  7. Holographic 3D ISAR Imaging for Improved Discrimination of Ballistic Targets

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: BMDO01003

    The missile discrimination problem requires rapid target discrimination precisely locating the reentry vehicle (RV) within a ballistic cloud consisting of RVs, decoys, debris, clutter, and countermeasures. The Phase-I study demonstrated that a Volumetric Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (VISAR) processing approach combined with a distribute radar collection system offers a significant improvement ...

  8. Innovative Manufacturing Processes: Advanced Optical Processor Insertion

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: MDA03049

    The projected ballistic missile defense (BMD) threat environment is extremely challenging. The linear frequency modulation (LFM) waveforms used by current radars have limitations in these projected environments. The use of advanced waveforms is desired for these imaging tasks, but they require both wideband analog to digital converters and intensive digital processing. Optical front-end receive ...

  9. A Source-Integrated Micro-Cooling Device

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: 00015

    Advanced Thermal and Environmental Concepts (ATEC Inc.), in collaboration with the University of Maryland, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and Thermacore, Inc., propose to develop and test a highly efficient, source integrated, ultra compact cooling device with broad applications in military and commercial sectors. An electrohydrodynamic (EHD)-enhanced ultra thin film evaporation concept is use ...

  10. Novel cost-effective technical approach for production of AlGaN/GaN HEMTs on 6 inch Sapphire Substrates

    SBC: TECHNOLOGIES & DEVICES INTERNATIONAL,            Topic: MDA04020

    The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate large area manufacturing technology for high performance AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) for radar and RF applications. TDI proposes to develop novel epitaxial technology for HEMTs structures on large area sapphire substrates based on hydride vapor phase epitaxial (HVPE) approach. TDI recently demonstrated the first-ever nitride HEM ...
