  1. Automated Battle Management / Planning Aids

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: MDA06007

    The United States missile defense capability is expanding rapidly. As the number of interceptors, types, and locations increase to defend against growing threats, so does the complexity of defense. Development of automated allocation of assets to threats is a critical technology to save lives and to efficiently utilize scarce assets (save money) in the event of an actual launch. This automated a ...

  2. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Recent and emerging technologies, such as a 3-D LADAR tracker with precise target detection, tracking, and aimpoint imaging could make significant gains for ABL’s capabilities. Solid state avalanche photodiodes (APDs) are a rugged, fully-monolithic detector technology well suited for LADAR focal plane arrays (FPAs). In the past, Geiger mode APD operation has been preferred for tasks requiring se ...

  4. A Phase I SBIR Proposal to Lower the Cost and Improve the Manufacturing of Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA06026

    Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are attractive candidates for use as power sources in military, aerospace, commercial, and vehicular applications because they have high specific energy (up to 200 Wh/kg) and energy density (~ 500 Wh/L) and long cycle life (1,000 – 80,000 cycles currently depending on the depth of cycling). However, the production of these batteries for defense applications is ofte ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. High toughness reaction bonded composites

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04041

    M Cubed manufactures many commercial components out of reaction bonded SiC and B4C on a large scale. The key advantages of these materials are high specific stiffness (high modulus and low density) and high thermal stability (high thermal conductivity and low CTE). However, these materials have limited toughness precluding their use in many potential applications including some missile defense com ...
