  1. Rain Erosion Modeling for Hypersonic Thermal Protection System (TPS) and Structures

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05021

    Within the hypersonic missile community, it is generally known that Mentis Sciences, Inc. (MSI) is developing a candidate Quartz/Polysiloxane radome solution for the Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC3) system. This solution is presently in the process of being evaluated for the relevant hypersonic rain erosion environs and full-scale thermal/structural loading. At this time, it has exceeded all m ...

  2. One-Size-Fits-All Hardened Electronic Design and Test Platform

    SBC: QuickFlex, Inc            Topic: MDA03049

    Space and military system designers have a significant and growing problem migrating from system solutions using radiation-hardened components to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and "rad-hard by design" (RHBD) components. Current testing solutions are either custom built "one-off" solutions, expensive, and/or not easily portable. QuickFlex is extending prior successful work for NASA to create the ...

  3. Radiation-Hardened Memory- 90nm 64Mb SRAM

    SBC: Silicon Space Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA08014

    Silicon Space Technology along with its partner Texas Instruments proposes to develop, fabricate and test the world’s first radiation hardened 64Mb Quad Data Rate SRAM for space applications by applying SST’s proprietary hardened-by-isolation (HBI) techniques to TI’s 90nm C027 process. The 64Mb QDR SRAM will be designed using TI’s existing 90nm design rules and manufactured in TI’s 90nm ...

  4. Radiation Hard Electronic Components: Multiple 180nm RH circuits and TCV’s via Texas Instruments for incorporation by Rockwell Collins

    SBC: Silicon Space Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA05029

    Communication systems being developed for tactical space and missile defense applications must include radiation hardness as a reliability requirement. These systems will use software-defined modems and programmable encryption circuits based on high-performance integrated circuits. But with the required increases in density, performance and complexity of integrated circuits, also comes increased ...

  5. Dramatic Improvement In The Quantum Efficiency Of Large-Format Longwave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays for THAAD Sensor Upgrade

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA05009

    MDA is considering several technologies to upgrade the THAAD sensor. QWIP (Quantum Well Infrared Photodetector) technology is one option being considered. While QWIP has clear advantages (e.g. large formats, high pixel operability, excellent uniformity and image stability, low cost, and proven multi-color capability), its quantum efficiencies have to be improved (to > 40% internal QE, > 15-20% e ...

  6. Advanced Synergistic Structures and Materials for Interceptor Kill Vehicles

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10015

    "Mentis proposes to leverage the advantages of its high-temperature, low-density quartz/polysiloxane composite materials and develop fiber architectures that reduce interlaminar shear stresses. These developments would improve aerothermal longevity and performance and also utilize automated fiber placement methods that increase the affordability of nosecone materials. Mentis proposes to design a c ...

  7. Ontology Driven Integration Framework (ODIF)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA04043

    The main goal of this project is to design, develop, and demonstrate an innovative Ontology Driven Integration Framework (ODIF). We propose a hybrid approach that combines knowledge extraction techniques with ontology analysis methods to automatically extract knowledge from distributed, unstructured text sources and facilitate the integration and sharing of this knowledge for space launch and ran ...

  8. Highly Affordable Net- and Near-Net Forming of Fully Dense TaC for Boost Nozzle Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA05068

    This Phase 2 SBIR proposal addresses the technical and manufacturing challenges associated with development of cost-effective materials solutions for ultrahigh temperature solid rocket motor throat components ¡V particularly those associated with boost nozzle solid rocket motor (SRM) or solid divert/attitude control SDACS components for vehicles such as KEI and SM-3. Exothermics and their Phase ...

  9. DISCRIMINATING DECOYS FROM MISSILE TARGETS BY ABSOLUTE TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT WITH MULTI-COLOR INFRARED FOCAL PLANE ARRAYS

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA08002

    We propose to develop and deliver 2-Color midwave/longwave infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) and a camera based on Type-II InAs/InGaSb strained layer superlattice (SLS) sensor technology. 2-Color SLS FPAs with formats of 320x256 and 640x512 will be delivered, together with a portable 2-Color 320x256 camera. In Phase I, we designed and demonstrated the basic 2-Color midwave/longwave infrared SLS ...

  10. Efficient Sensor Management for Optimal Multi-Task Performance (ES-MaTe)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA10002

    The vision of the Efficient Sensor Management for Optimal Multi-Task Performance (ES-MaTe) initiative is to develop technology that will enable C2BMC to plan and manage multiple sensor resources in order to support dynamic planning for defense against hostile multi-raid missile attack. BMDS uses multiple disparate and spatially separated sensors to support tracking, in flight target update of thre ...
