  1. Low Cost, High Performance Inertial Rate Sensors- Airborne

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04181

    ATA proposes development of an Advanced Rate Gyro (ARG) that blends two of ATA’s developmental designs to fulfill MDA’s airborne gyroscope requirements. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) requires such high performance gyros for Advanced Inertial Reference Units (aIRUs) for Airborne Laser DE systems and space-based surveillance and weapons systems. Current high performance gyros are marginal in mee ...

  2. Auto-Correcting Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04130

    Department of Defense space surveillance and weapons systems require highly accurate inertial knowledge in absolute location and orientation. Current technologies providing these functions are not integrated into a single, light-weight, low-cost, power-efficient, and drift-free instrument. Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to further develop its innovative Auto-correcting Inertial Measu ...

  3. High Bandwidth Fast Steering Mirror

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04109

    As the Airborne Laser (ABL) comes closer to directing a high energy laser (HEL) at a boosting missile target, it is essential that higher bandwidth fast steering mirrors (FSMs) need to be developed. These FSMs must be capable of controlling large 12-inch mirrors while handling the HEL power levels. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that a FSM mechanism (substrate and mounting structure) can be designe ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Multi-sensor tracking techniques


    We propose to develop algorithms and software to fuse data from multiple sensor systems that are tracking ballistic missile threat(s) in order to provide a tactical picture of higher quality than that capable from any single sensor. We will build upon our previously developed Data Fusion Correlation Algorithm (DFCA). The DFCA is a multi-source track-to-track, multi-hypothesis data fusion system ...

  6. Solid-State Electrically Controllable Rocket Motors For Safe Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA05069

    The invention of Electrically Controlled Extinguishable Solid Propellants (ECESP) over the last five years opens the door for completely new ways of controlling solid rocket motors. When the propellant is fitted with electrodes and a current of the required voltage is applied, the propellant ignites and continues to burn until the voltage is removed. Throttle control and multiple restarts have b ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Space Radiation Hardened PM Fiber


    The research and development proposed herein addresses a critical deficiency existing in the space radiation survivability of high precision interferometric fber optic gyros (IFOGs), specifically the non-availability of a small diameter (80 micron), radiation hardened, polarization maintaining, optical fiber suitable for application to meet or exceed the IFOG performance goals of the space trackin ...

  9. High Performance Passive Flexible Heat Transport Material

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA05016

    Next generation space infrared sensing technologies will require revolutionary improvements in thermal transport and storage technologies. Flexible cryogenic and ambient cooling is essential to meet emerging requirements for these advanced systems. Enabling technologies to accommodate the increasingly compact and higher density Air Force and Department of Defense infrared sensing payloads are re ...

  10. Development of Low Cost Needled C/SiC for TDACS Applications

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA05066

    This proposal is submitted under topic MD05-066 and addresses the development of low cost, needled C/SiC for throttleable divert and altitude control systems (TDACS). The TDACS is being developed to guide the kinetic weapon of the Navy's Standard Missile-3 to the target. The throttleable solid rocket motor technology embodied in the TDACS increases the range, standoff distance, and engagement ar ...
