  1. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    The applicant will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will ve entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and ha ...

  2. High Flux Cooling System for Solid State Lasers


    Solid State Lasers, high power microwaves and other future Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs) are notoriously inefficient, typically converting 20 percent or less of their input energy to useful output, with the remainder requiring removal in the form of heat. In most cases, the devices must be paused while the waste heat is removed. Weapon unavailability is the war fighter"s nemesis. Also perplexi ...

  3. High Energy Solid State Laser Components and Subsystems

    SBC: CRYSTAL GENESIS, LLC            Topic: MDA10006

    The goal of this proposed Phase I effort is to design, construct, and demonstrate a novel laser gain element that can be scaled to operation at power levels in the 10s to 100s of kilowatts in a light-weight, compact, and rugged design while maintaining very high efficiency, high brightness, and good beam quality. This goal will be accomplished through the construction of a composite thin disk gai ...

  4. A compact, low-drift atomic spin gyroscope for intertial pointing

    SBC: Twinleaf LLC            Topic: MDA10011

    Co-magneometer atomic spin gyroscopes are rapidly progressing towards very high levels of sensitivity. The proposed work focuses on the engineering necessary to fully utilize the fundamental sensitivity of these sensors. In particular, we propose to develop a new probe beam optical system that promises to reduce bias drift significantly. We also seek to extend our existing control system to proper ...

  5. Wideband Scalable Multi-channel Digital Receiver/Exciter (DREX)

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA10028

    The United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is searching for a software-defined multi-channel radar receiver/exciter that would provide improved performance and added flexibility over currently deployed radar systems. In response, MaXentric is proposing a system codenamed ACERR (Advanced Coherent Exciter/Receiver Radar). The ACERR system is composed of a hierarchy of analog front-ends, high-sp ...

  6. Discrimination Damage Assessment

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA05040

    As the BMDS evolves over the next decade, the community will be exposed to a substantially greater amount of data from successful intercepts in all phases of the tiered defense, including boost, mid-course and terminal. In order to perform the necessary battle management, command and control functions, a net of sensors using both active RF sensors supporting the fire control, guidance and navigati ...

  7. Passive Range Estimation from Angle-only Sensor Data (Acq Pointing&Tracking)

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA08050

    The proposed work will extend the studies conducted during Phase I to develop a mature Monocular Passive Ranging capability to enable single EO/IR sensors in a UAV network to determine threat location accurately enough to cue other assets (other UAV sensors, radars, etc). Such a capability is a key enabler for Early Intercept or enhanced C2BMC, since it mitigates stressing requirements for sensor ...

  8. Track Correlation

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA09027

    The key to successful track correlation, and early intercept, is to discriminate between observations of multiple threats, eliminate false tracks, and characterize each threat prior to ingestion of angles-angles data into a tracking filter framework. SciTec"s novel approach to this challenge is to extract features that are available only during the boost phase, fuse these features with track data ...
