  3. High Speed Missile to Missile Communications

    SBC: CesiumAstro Inc.            Topic: MDA17001

    Missile-to-missile high speed communication can greatly enhance the operational effectiveness of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) of the United States.Currently, information from the first interceptor is sent to the launch control and then from the launch control to the second interceptor. The round-trip signal latency decreases the likelihood of successful interception. The approach pr ...

  7. Hyper-Velocity Projectile (HVP) Warhead Optimization for Lethality

    SBC: ENERGETIC MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: MDA18003

    Next generation hyper velocity projectiles (HVP) are needed to enhance lethality when deployed against ballistic missile re-entry vehicles (BMRVs). Opportunity exists for inventive payloads to increase lethality in non-Hit-to-Kill scenarios for gun launched projectiles. EMPIs concept for destroying BMRVs uses an enhanced HVP designed to project a fragment field that is forward focused, conical in ...

  9. Reduction in Variability in Liquid Locking Compound Applications.

    SBC: SYSTEMS & MATERIALS RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA16014

    Liquid locking compounds (LLCs) are often applied to fasteners in missile applications to augment preload in resistance to vibration-induced loosening. The amount of LLC needed to reach a specified locking torque varies greatly depending on the fastening system. There is a need to apply LLCs to fastening systems consistently and with known adhesion characteristics to provide OEMs with a repeatable ...

  10. Aft Looking Spectrometer for Plume Characterization and Waking on Re-entry

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: MDA16016

    We propose a hyperspectral imager for aft-looking wake and plume characterization. The payload is designed to operate with existing COTS components and has no moving parts. The high spectral resolution will provide atomic and molecular emission lines, and the spatial resolution will produce a spatial map of these excitations.
