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.

  4. Miniaturized Electronic Safe and Arm Devices

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA14022

    The evolution in safe and arm (S&A) devices to in-line electronic S&A and Arm-Fire devices (ESAD/EAFD) have not tracked closely with the incredible cost- and size-reductions made by electronics in-general. Large electro-mechanical S&A device used in rocket motor ignition systems have become one of the notable cost elements on current missile systems. Developing and delivering considerably smalle ...

  5. High Stability Composite Ablative Insulator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA14020

    Ballistic missile defense (BMD) systems make use of carbon cloth - phenolic (CCP) resin composite materials, particularly as ablative insulators in the inlets and throats of rocket motor nozzles. However, CCP exhibits aging through increased moisture content, arising from both water uptake in ambient air and endogenous water generation in the resin as it ages. The presence of water in CCP leads ...

  6. High-Performance, Low SWaP, Radiation Hardened and Vibrationally Robust Inertial Measurement Unit Employing Fast Light Technology For Missile Defense

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA14019

    There is a need for new types of IMUs, with better accuracy than the state of the art. Digital Optics Technologies (DOT) has been developing a Fast Light Optical Gyroscope (FLOG) that can improve the accuracy of rotation sensing by nearly six orders of magnitude. Alternatively, for a given accuracy need, the FLOG can be very small. DOT has also developed a Fast Light Optical Accelerometer (FLOAC ...

  9. Further Enhancement of Non-Eroding Throat Liner Technology to Enable Upper Stage Solid Rocket Motor Transition

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA14002

    Plasma Processes non-eroding throat liner technology for aluminized propellants has been significantly matured since 1999. An upcoming full-scale test will demonstrate that the technology is sufficient for transition consideration. However, there remain gaps in the technology that must be addressed prior to transition. The objective of this effort is to address these obstacles in order to expedite ...
