  1. A Compact, Transportable JP-8 Reformer

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Highly efficient, high energy density electrical generation systems are needed for ground based assets. Fuel cell electrical generation systems provide high efficiency, low emissions, and low thermal signatures. A cost effective, transportable reformersystem, providing hydrogen, while using a military fuel such as JP-8, and meeting military operational requirements does not exist. The develo ...

  2. A Component-Based Software Framework for Large Scale Systems

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop a component-based software framework for developing large-scale software and hardware/software systems based upon an innovative software architecture we originally developed for use in the modeling and simulation of complex systems.This architecture make use of the familiar concepts and terminology of systems engineering - systems, subsystems, inputs, outputs, and so forth - ...

  3. A Hybrid NS/PNS Unstructured-Grid Based Efficient CFD Solver Using Zonal Strategy


    "Development of an unstructured-grid based PNS/NS CFD solver provides advances in unstructured-grid technology to provide a more efficient analysis tool. Over a wide range of the missile flight trajectories, a PNS methodology is sufficient and a more costeffective approach to provide CFD analysis capability than a traditional NS approach. Overall memory and the CPU requirement can be reduced to ...

  4. Active Polarimetric LADAR System


    "Polarization imaging holds promise for providing significant improvements in contrast for target detection and discrimination. It has been demonstrated that manmade objects have a significantly stronger polarized signal than natural backgrounds. There isalso strong promise for improved target-background contrast with active imaging polarimeters, operating similarly to a LADAR system. SAGE prop ...

  5. Active Laser Tracker for KKV

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "Ballistic missile defense requires the ability to find, track and intercept a threat missile before it can reach its target. The kinetic kill vehicle (KKV) is a fundamental means to intercept and destroy the threat. To be successful, the KKV must be ableto acquire and track the target autonomously while steering itself on an intercept course. It must do this within a very small Circular Error ...

  6. Advanced 10 Kelvin Cryogenic Cooling Component Technology

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04077

    The goal of this project is to demonstrate a recuperator with extremely high effectiveness for use in a reverse turbo-Brayton (RTB) cryocooler. The recuperator will offer substantial system weight reduction, volume reduction, and performance increases for a cryocooler that can be used for Block 12 as well as any other space-based cryocooling needs. Advanced micro-manufacturing technology is need ...

  7. Advanced Divert and Attitude Control (DACS) system for the Multiple (Miniature) Kill Vehicles (MKV)


    One possible method to intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles which deploy countermeasures is to use a "shotgun" approach, in which numerous small, cheap kill vehicles are deployed simultaneously in the hopes of scoring multiple hits. In order to be effective, such vehicles must be compact, inexpensive, reliable, and responsive. Miniaturizing a propulsion system is difficult because energet ...

  8. An Integrated High Altitude Plume/Hardbody Interaction Model

    SBC: MILSYS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA04148

    The modeling and simulation of the IR signatures and six degree-of-freedom trajectory dynamics of objects associated with theater and strategic ballistic missiles is an area of major concern for the development and testing of effective missile defense systems. Current state-of-the-art MDA models are highly capable and model a variety of complex effects including: IR radiation emitted from missile ...

  9. An Integrated Portable High-Voltage Ultra-Wideband Transmitter

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "High-voltage Ultra-Wideband transmitters are a key component in a wide variety of systems involving directed energy weapons, UWB radar, and secure communications. These applications require a UWB transmitter that combines a portable high-gain antenna witha fast-risetime high-voltage triggered source that is battery powered. Until recently, both the antennas and sources were too large and heavy to ...

  10. Application of Turbine Engines in Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Craft


    The objective is to modify and test gas turbine engines presently installed in/on marine craft to demonstrate that by adapting technology used on street legal vehicles can be used to reduce the heat and noise levels in marine craft. Whether or not the IR15dB level or lower, and the above water acoustic/noise level to 60dB level or lower can be achieved, is a matter that can only be demostrated by ...
