  1. Development of Fast and Slow Cook-off Mitigation Sensor


    Designed and successfully demonstrated in the laboratory by Mechanical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) during Phase I, the fast and slow cook-off mitigation sensor (FASCOMS) generated sufficient electrical power from the surrounding environment to function a military-standard squib, which can control a thermally initiated venting system (TIVS) on a large solid rocket motor (SRM). The FASCOMS monitored the ...

  2. Enhanced Spacecraft Survivability

    SBC: SENSING STRATEGIES, INC            Topic: MDA09023

    SSI proposes to build a novel suite of sensors coupled with real-time signal processing algorithms to detect, classify and report on these potentially interfering or damaging sources. Our approach addresses the three areas of emphasis stated in the solicitation.

  3. Real Time Monitoring of Natural and Enhanced Space Environments

    SBC: SENSING STRATEGIES, INC            Topic: MDA08015

    Sensing Strategies proposes to build space qualified hardware that implements the design architecture developed under the Phase I effort. The design emphasizes detection and characterization of transient events (optical and non-optical) that may impact satellites carrying out critical MDA missions. Our design uses a multi-channel spectral classification approach with custom amplification and sam ...

  4. Advancing CRAM Producibility


    In this SBIR program, SMI will work with an established producer of radiation hardened CRAM and the originators of CRAM technology to utilize the manufacturing benefits of i) MOCVD processing, ii) advanced active material compositions for CRAMs, and thus, (iii) further optimize CRAMs. In Phase I we will sample produced materials in test structures with device production partner(s), determine poten ...

  5. High-Voltage and High-Frequency Power Switch for Next Generation Transmit Receiver Module Power Supplies

    SBC: UNITED SILICON CARBIDE, INC.            Topic: MDA08029

    In response to SBIR topic MDA08-029, USCI proposes to develop a unique 4H-SiC super-junction lateral JFET (SL-JFET), based on a novel and simple design, to solve all of the remaining problems facing the development of 4H-SiC power switches for resonant high-frequency power converter in radar applications, including the problems of high output coupling capacitance of vertical SiC MOSFETs that lead ...

  6. High Rate Single Photon Sensitive Coded LADAR Receiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA09038

    There is a need for a high-resolution two-dimensional focal plane array (FPA) with single photon sensitivity (SPS), pulse amplitude storage, and GHz bit rates that can record both the time (with 10 bits) from multiple returns from a single laser pulse. Such a system has the potential to significantly reduce LADAR size, weight, and power (SWAP) by alleviating the laser requirements. In this program ...

  7. Large-Format Dual-Use Radiation-Hard ROIC for IRFPAs and Star-Trackers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA09014

    New, modular radiation hard [>300 kRad (Si)] ROIC designs are required to address the needs of planned ballistic missile defense system. Anticipating the needs for large formats, small pixel sizes, and multiple spectral bands, the features of an existing radiation-hard space imager ROIC will be used to develop the design of an extensible 1024 × 1024, 15-μm pixel ROIC design. The design includes ...

  8. Non-Avalanche Gain Detector for High-Resolution Single-Photon and Dual Mode Applications

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA09002

    Future seekers of the future will need to allow for multiple targets and various advanced countermeasures, likely including a dual-mode component to do so. A Dual Mode Seeker (DMS) has at least an infrared (IR) Focal Plane Array (FPA) as well as an active means to capture target range and preferably 3-D imagery. Future technology insertion will benefit from a monolithic dual mode focal plane, wher ...

  9. Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA08002

    A 128 x 128-format avalanche photodiode (APD) focal plane array (FPA), including a low-power dual-mode readout integrated circuit (ROIC) and low excess noise, high gain (M>1,200) will be developed for laser radar (LADAR) applications requiring reduced SWAP. The FPA gives LADAR seekers an advanced active tracking sensor capability, providing a sufficiently wide field of regard (FOR) to eliminate th ...

  10. Track Correlation

    SBC: SCITEC INC            Topic: MDA09027

    Several approaches to multi-target tracking using data from disparate sources are available as a point of departure for meeting the requirements of the ballistic missile defense system. Kalman filters (KF) represent the basic fusion approach geared towards tracking the 3D positions, velocities and accelerations of boosting missiles by fusing angles-only data from multiple sensors. Extended Kalma ...
