  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. Improved High Power Diode Array Manufacturing

    SBC: SIMMTEC, INC.            Topic: MDA02021a

    The primary objective of this proposed Phase II Project is to scale up the SiMMtec diode array manufacturing process and to demonstrate that the target price of $3/W for QCW operation for high performance high power diode arrays can be achieved for 1000 array orders. We propose to develop and demonstrate the scale up of the required processes to fabricate the SiMM array. Extended lifetest of the ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Manufacturing Process Maturation for Propulsion Technology: Structural Insulators

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA08018

    MDA missile systems employ solid rocket motors and divert and attitude control systems (DACS) to propel and guide kinetic energy weapons. These systems create hot, high pressure gases that impose high heat loads on surrounding metal structures and electronic controls. Exist-ing designs use ablative insulators (e.g. EPDM) and monolithic ceramics (e.g. NZP) to limit the temperatures in surrounding ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 3-D Modeling of Rocket Motor Plumes


    Characteristics of missile plume signature emissions have a great potential to enhance defensive capabilities in a number of important areas related to early (boost-phase) detection and identification of the missile system/rocket motor. Missile defense technologies where plume modeling plays a significant role include: early warning launch detection (ELDT), post launch warning detection; missile t ...

  10. 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 ...
