  1. Integrated Insulation Processing and Testing System

    SBC: Applied Physical Electronics, L.C.            Topic: MDA04039

    The Achilles heel in high voltage systems is with dielectric materials used for insulation. Liquid dielectrics offer advantages in self-healing and thermal management properties, but their dielectric strength is low. Liquid dielectrics also require ancillary devices for flowing and de-ionizing, and these systems are vulnerable to leaks in high-g environments. Solid dielectrics offer advantages ...

  2. Integrated Data Compression and Security Algorithms

    SBC: Asier Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA02040

    In Phase I of this SBIR, Asier conducted research to determine if telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted. Asier determined that two different types of MDA telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted in real-time (no added latency) and without damaging either the integrity or synchronicity of the data stream. Telemetry files from the payload launch vehicle (PLV) and orbital/sub-orb ...

  3. Lightweight hardware design for regenerative fuel cells

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: MDA03100

    Practical use of a RFC for solar powered winged aircraft and lighter-than-air craft has been limited due to weight constraints and the paucity of test data from and practical experience with closed loop RFC hardware. The lightweight cells and endplates developed in Phase I of this program will be applied to the practical implementation of a closed-loop regenerative fuel cell. This RFC will build ...

  4. Image Processing Algorithms for Target Discrimination

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA03010

    MDA seeks for an efficient target tracking and discrimination system beyond the current state of the art. The primary motivation of the work proposed is to offer a topographic microprocessor architecture for multi-target discrimination and tracking with embedded sensors capable of operating in a process real-time manner. Phase I effort has shown that the performance of multi-target tracking (MTT) ...

  5. Adaptive Computing for Surveillance and Seeker Applications

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA04042

    The Missile Defence Agency (MDA) calls for novel adaptive computing solutions on either analog and/or digital architectures designed for ballistic missile defence (BMD) surveillance and missile seeker applications. It seeks for approaches and methods that may be attractive not only to satellites and interceptors, but also to UAV/UCAV platforms. We are proposing novel algorithmic frameworks for mov ...

  6. FASST(tm) Synthesis of CIGS for Flexible Solar Modules

    SBC: HELIOVOLT CORP.            Topic: MDA04003

    Very lightweight, high efficiency, flexible, and durable photovoltaic (PV) arrays are needed to generate electric power for high-altitude airships. Copper-indium-gallium-diselenide (CIGS) has been identified as the thin-film photovoltaic material that can meet or exceed these stringent requirements, but current processing methods cannot provide the combination of high efficiency, light weight, an ...

  7. Ontology Driven Integration Framework (ODIF)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA04043

    This project will research, design, and demonstrate an innovative Ontology Driven Integration Framework (ODIF). We propose a hybrid approach that combines knowledge extraction techniques with ontology analysis methods to extract semantic information from distributed, unstructured text sources and that rapidly deploys this knowledge for knowledge sharing and integration for space launch and range ...

  8. MSFF: Multi-Spectral Feature Fusion

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA04011

    We propose to build a Multi-Spectral Feature Fusion Framework (MSFF): a framework for fusion of data from Multi-Spectral sensors. The ultimate goal of the proposed solution is to improve the probability of target detection and identification. Two major innovations of the proposed effort are: (i) Composite feature vector that includes diverse features such as shape parameters (area, boundary leng ...

  9. High-Average-Power Cryogenically-Cooled Diode-Pumped Yb:YAG Laser

    SBC: LE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: BMDO97016

    Department of Defense (DOD) interset in developing laser weaponary in the 1960's. Solid-State lasers have been a canidate technology from the earliest time, but for various reasons, this technology has not been developed to a point where they are scalable to high average power lasers. The development of diode laser pump arrays has improved efficiency, but at a considerable increase in systems cost ...

  10. Fully Integrated, Multiport, Planar-Waveguide Spectral Comparators and Multiplexers Based on Lithographic Holography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: BMDO02011

    Photonic devices providing high performance spectral filtering, multiplexing, optical waveform processing, and signal routing will be designed, fabricated, and characterized. The devices are based on photolithographic scribing of holographic structures onto the surface of planar waveguides and operate on intra-guide signals. The holographic structures provide a manufacturable approach to 2D phot ...
