  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. Beryllium Alloy Replacement Materials for Missile Optical Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: MDA03048

    Foster-Miller will demonstrate an innovative, low cost and health hazard-free ceramic matrix composite (CMC) material to effectively substitute beryllium and its alloys in EKV optical structures. We previously demonstrated an affordable and scalable processing route to produce high performance and complex shaped CMC materials. During Phase I, mechanical and thermal properties of our low cost SiC m ...

  3. Graphite Fiber Reinforced Mg EKV Sunshade for Be Replacement and Cost and Mass Reduction


    In Phase I, we demonstrated that Mg-AZ31 alloy reinforced with graphite fibers has over 27% higher specific stiffness than beryllium. Since EKV sunshade is a stiffness critical application, sunshades manufactured from graphite/Mg could weigh 27% less than the current Be design. Further, testing at MMCC and preliminary results from Raytheon show the material to be gas impermeable. Using MMCC's n ...

  4. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase II 2004 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency


    This SBIR Phase II proposal is responsive to the MDA program objective to develop secure, long range, spectrally efficient, high data rate telemetry systems that are capable of communicating at distances of the order of 300 to 500 Km at data rates of the order of 20 to 30 Mbps. The TODS Phase I study program addressed the above MDA/TC program objectives and developed innovative spectrally efficien ...

  6. 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) ...

  7. Advanced Regenerative Fuel Cell System for High-Altitude Airships

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: MDA03100

    Next-Generation High-Altitude Airships (HAAs) are increasingly attractive for a variety of defense and non-defense oriented missions, including applications for homeland security, missile defense initiatives, surveillance, remote sensing, radar, and telecommunications. Providing adequate power for the airship and payloads is a prime concern for long-duration HAAs. Regenerative fuel cell (RFC) syst ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA03T004

    The team of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Ohio State University (OSU) proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel electrically generated singlet oxygen to atomic iodine laser. In Phase I we developed and demonstrated a novel discharge method for production of singlet molecular oxygen and completed a design for a supersonic transfer laser. In Phase II we propose to extend this work to develop ...

  10. Aerogel Enhanced Thermal Management Systems for STSS

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: MDA03049

    Aspen Aerogels is developing low-density, flexible aerogel composites to satisfy the thermal and mechanical insulation requirements for weight-sensitive launch vehicles or space based platforms. Efficient, low areal density protection to key structures and optical components from excessive solar (or other source) heating will be afforded by directly attaching the appropriately packaged insulation ...
