  1. Innovative Techniques for Missile Defense- Proportional Hot Gas Actuator for DACS

    SBC: APPLIED THERMAL SCIENCES            Topic: MDA04020

    A key component of missile interceptor vehicles is the divert and attitude control system (DACS), which is responsible for maneuvering the interceptor vehicle to its target. A vital component to the DACS is the thruster, which provides effective control of vehicle divert. Solid propellant DACS thrusters employ an adjustable pintle for controlling the thrust level. Movement of the pintle for smo ...

  2. Development of Zinc Sulfide Seeker Window Material

    SBC: VICUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA04053

    Ground based interceptors can benefit significantly from the use of a dual color focal planes and wideband seekers for improved target acquisition and target discrimination. Zinc sulfide has been under evaluation as a replacement window for the THAAD seeker system to replace the current sapphire window. Zinc sulfide presents a wideband capability and will result in a significant system cost reduct ...

  3. Miniaturized, Low Weight, Low Cost Interceptor Components for the Miniature Kill Vehicle (MKV)

    SBC: VICUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA04009

    Advanced defensive interceptor systems require a source of power to operate target acquisition, seeker, and divert propulsion systems. As kill vehicle sizes continue to contract, novel power systems are required to minimize weight and of equal importance, to minimize volume. A conformal Ultracapacitor Power Storage Device has been demonstrated in Phase I that provides an energy density approaching ...

  4. Modular Mission Planning Toolkit (MMPT)

    SBC: Technology Systems Inc.            Topic: N05080

    TSI proposes to develop a mission planner that will be adaptable to AUVs currently planned to be integrated into the fleet over the next 3 years, be able to receive environmental data from Navy libraries (such as DIOPS), and optimize AUV missions as a result of the environmental data received. The mission planner will be able to coordinate the use of multiple AUVs to optimize environmental data c ...

  7. Development of Durable, Fiber-Reinforced Refractory Composites for Thermal Protection Systems (TPSs)

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF05137

    Next-generation endo/exoatmospheric hypersonic vehicles require durable thermal protection systems (TPSs) for leading edges, control surfaces and skin acreage that are resistant to impact damage. Fiber Materials Inc. (FMI) proposes a multidirectional fiber reinforced C/C-SiC TPS that demonstrates high impact durability for both low and high velocity debris. FMI's multidirectional C/C-SiC outer s ...

  8. Innovative Thermal Protection Systems (TPSs) for Trajectory Shaping Vehicles (TSVs)

    SBC: INTERMAT            Topic: AF05143

    Advanced reentry vehicles desire extended time durations in oxidizing environments, at temperatures in the range of 3000°K. State of the art nosetip materials utilize a high density carbon/carbon (C/C) composite that has a carbide center core. This attribute results in maintenance of the aerodynamic shape of the nosetip for the vehicle. Intermat has produced nosetip billets with a variety of `c ...

  9. Integrated Missile Harness-Fairing Assembly

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: MDA04111

    A need exists for a state-of-the-art electrical interconnection assembly that will simplify missile manufacture and assembly at a reduced cost relative to current methods. It should provide thermal protection, facilitate internal individual EMI shielding from each bundle type as well as external sources, and minimize the harness-fairing profile reducing aerodynamic forces. Fiber Materials, Inc. ( ...
