  1. 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 ...

  2. Electronic Warfare Environment Simulator System (EWESS)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: A00043

    SPEC proposes to develop and deliver a flight capable Target Hologram Generator (THG)--a programmable flight module that forms radar hologram target countermeasure signatures of hard objects in flight--to MDA's Target and Countermeasures (T&C) program. For example, a single unit is capable of creating multiple ECM/ECCM scenarios, different emitters - separated by frequency, phase, time, and other ...

  3. Image Processing Algorithms for Target Discrimination

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA03010

    MDA seeks for an efficient target tracking and discrimination system beyond the current state of the art. The primary motivation of the work proposed is to offer a topographic microprocessor architecture for multi-target discrimination and tracking with embedded sensors capable of operating in a process real-time manner. Phase I effort has shown that the performance of multi-target tracking (MTT) ...

  4. Integrated Data Compression and Security Algorithms

    SBC: Asier Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA02040

    In Phase I of this SBIR, Asier conducted research to determine if telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted. Asier determined that two different types of MDA telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted in real-time (no added latency) and without damaging either the integrity or synchronicity of the data stream. Telemetry files from the payload launch vehicle (PLV) and orbital/sub-orb ...

  5. A Novel Approach to Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Fabrication to Significantly Increase Power Density and Specific Power

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: MDA03100

    For Phase II, Lynntech proposes to implement the adhesively bonded stack technology developed in Phase I in a full-size, closed-loop, regenerative fuel cell energy storage system (ESS). The ESS will be capable of delivering 34 kW of peak power and will demonstrate a roundtrip efficiency of up to 60%! The ESS will include the use of efficient balance-of-plant components, and components necessary fo ...

  6. Multifunctional Structures for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: MDA03030

    Interceptor programs are in high gear and the need for advancing technologies to be applied to these programs are at an all-time high. Payload mass fractions are a driving force in the design process of these Kill Vehicles (KVs). Programs such as the Ground-Based Interceptor and Space-Based Interceptor are in need of ways to reduce the weight and volume of electronic system components, while at ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Thin Film Power Cells for High Altitude Airships

    SBC: Lithium Power Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03100

    There is a requirement for lightweight propulsion and energy storage technologies with high energy density, long service life, good reliability, thermal and radiation resistant and low cost for use in high altitude airships for defense and non-defense oriented missions. In Phase I, Lithium Power Technologies proposed and demonstrated the feasibility of the thin film, flat-pack lithium ion batterie ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
