  1. Cognitive Residential Heat Pump Fault Detection and Diagnostic Datalogger

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 9010173R

    Millions of heat pumps are used to heat and cool homes and buildings year round. Continuous operation means that components wear out at a greater rate. As a result, maintenance of residential heat pumps is a major cost driver. Current methods focus on reduced use through control settings. Typically, demand has wide swings throughout the day and people are unable to customize controls. Inevitably, ...

  2. Hiawatha Integrated Monitoring System (H-IMS): An Integrated Solution for Electromagnetic Detection of FIB Facilitated IC Modifications

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA11018

    Because Critical Program Information (CPI) is often embedded in Integrated Circuits (ICs), adversaries must now attack at the die level or through other intrusive means. As a result, Focused Ion Beams (FIBs) have become a preferred tool for reverse engineering. In Phase I, Nokomis demonstrated that FIB edits showed distinct, exploitable emission signature differences whose detection could be used ...

  3. Atmospheric Characterization for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: MDA12017

    MZA extends its partnership with the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) during Phase II to develop an integrated optical measurement and numerical weather prediction (NWP) atmospheric turbulence characterization system and atmospheric decision assistance toolkit application (DATA). We will develop a tracking telescope optical diagnostic system which images passing satellites or star fields ...

  4. 2-D Hyperspectral Imaging for High Speed Target Engagement and Identification

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: MDA12014

    A framing two dimensional (2-D) hyperspectral imager will be developed to operate in the short wavelength infrared and midwavelength infrared (SWIR-MWIR) bands.This instrument will allow spatial information to be gathered from the scene without spectral or spatial scanning.In Phase II, an advanced technology demonstrator will be designed and constructed.This demonstrator will be field tested in or ...

  5. Innovative Part Class Coverage for the Advanced Detection of Electronic Counterfeits (ADEC) System

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA12026

    The primary objective of this Phase II is to develop more complete part class coverage for the ADEC system. During Phase I, Nokomis demonstrated ADEC"s authentication capabilities. ADEC detects counterfeits through automated analysis of unintended radiated emissions that are characteristic of the internal circuitry of the device. This allows ADEC to rapidly detect multiple classes of counterfei ...

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

    SBC: COMBUSTION PROPULSION & BALLISTIC TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: MDA05070

    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 ...

  7. Multi-sensor tracking techniques

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA05050

    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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Space Radiation Hardened PM Fiber

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL PHOTONICS CONSULTANTS, INC            Topic: MDA05028

    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 ...
