The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Water-washout tooling for improved high- to very-high-temperature manufacturing of SM-3 TSRM composite motor cases

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA14002

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-AeroSM tooling, lightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures to the highest resin-matrix-composite cure temperatures. The proposed Phase II program would build on the successful work in Phase I toward creation of a washout mandrel for the upper stage rocket motor of a ...

  2. Water-washout tooling for improved high- to very-high-temperature manufacturing of composite motor cases

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA14002

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-AeroSM toolinglightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures. Tools have a composite-compatible Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), provide tight tolerances, are free-standing, and are of affordable cost. For BMDS applications Green-AeroSM offers both improved per ...

  3. Green Catalyst-free Electric Monopropellant (GEM) for Insensitive Munitions (IM) Compliance

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA13032

    Continuously advancing ballistic missile threats require an interceptor missile system which has greater basing flexibility and highly advanced performance in terms of burnout velocity and Divert and Attitude Control (DACS). Liquid systems are the ideal candidate to fit this role because of higher performance than solids; however, they tend to be a significant safety risk due to toxicity, corrosi ...

  4. Improved Thrust Termination Modeling for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA10022

    This effort addresses the need for a predictive model which characterizes the motor ejecta from thrust terminated and burn-to-depletion solid rocket motors. Two models will be developed: an engineering model that provides near term predictive capability and a high fidelity model which will provide guidance to improve the engineering models. The engineering model, developed under Phase I, will be ...

  5. Precision ACS (PACS) for DACS Low Level ACS

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA11025

    Our Precision Attitude Control System (PACS) delivers high precision attitude control for Kinetic Weapon (KW) long range target discrimination and acquisition. The PACS utilizes electrically-controlled solid propellant (ESP), an innovative propulsion technology that enables fast burn rate control, throttling, and extinguishment of thrusters, simply by controlling applied electrical current. This ...

  8. Precision ACS (PACS) for DACS Low Level ACS

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA11025

    Our Precision ACS (PACS) while combined with either a Liquid or Solid DACS delivers high precision Kinetic Weapon (KW) attitude control for long range target discrimination and acquisition. The PACS features multiple pulse Electric Solid Propellant (ESP) thrusters that are either individually pulsed controlled for very small impulse BIT"s or controlled in parallel for larger ACS thrust. The P ...

  9. Electric Pyrogens and Systems for Safer In-line Inititation of Rocket Motors

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA08045

    We will use our newly developed smart energetic materials to eliminate flame sensitive pyrogens and the bridge-wire connections for thermal ignition within initiators/squibs which will improve safety for Mil. Std. 1901A compliance. Unlike conventional materials, new pyrogen materials are insensitive to ignition by flame and so can not flame spread by impingement. However, new faster burning formu ...

  10. Improved Thrust Termination Modeling for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA10022

    To improve the predictive capabilities of solid rocket motor end-of-burn phenomena, two analysis tools will be further developed. An existing engineering tool will go through continued development and validation, while an existing solid rocket ballistics model, built and demonstrated within a commercial CFD platform, will be expanded to allow for conjugate heat transfer between the burning grain ...
