  1. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  2. Water-washout tooling for improved high- to very-high-temperature manufacturing of composite motor cases

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA14002

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-AeroSM toolinglightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures. Tools have a composite-compatible Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), provide tight tolerances, are free-standing, and are of affordable cost. For BMDS applications Green-AeroSM offers both improved per ...

  3. Track Refinement from Off-Nominal Break-Up

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: MDA14003

    A missile will sometimes break into smaller pieces, either by design or as a result of a malfunction or collision. The latter cases are called off-nominal, and can be difficult to analyze, especially if not observed directly. Before break-up there is a single parent object. After break-up there are multiple child objects, likely on very different trajectories. A radar is assumed to track the p ...

  4. High Energy Laser Advanced Cell (HELAC) Power System

    SBC: Infinity Fuel Cell and Hydrogen, Inc.            Topic: MDA13021

    New generation electric lasers offer the potential of a compact, lightweight deployable directed energy weapon with projected power levels into the megawatt range.These systems require power generation sources that can near-instantaneously deliver high levels of clean, stable power to the HEL load without disturbing the weapon platform stability or environment.This Proposed Phase II program advanc ...

  5. Green Catalyst-free Electric Monopropellant (GEM) for Insensitive Munitions (IM) Compliance

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA13032

    Continuously advancing ballistic missile threats require an interceptor missile system which has greater basing flexibility and highly advanced performance in terms of burnout velocity and Divert and Attitude Control (DACS). Liquid systems are the ideal candidate to fit this role because of higher performance than solids; however, they tend to be a significant safety risk due to toxicity, corrosi ...

  6. Command and Control, Modeling and Simulation, Training

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: MDA13T005

    This Phase II effort will leverage the existing Standard Space Trainer (SST) Phase III SBIR state-of-the-art research platform to leverage its inherent capabilities as the software engine to support this research effort. The SST has a collection of software that provides development support and a common runtime environment for the use of mission specific plug-ins. This reusable SST Architecture ...

  7. Rapid, Low-Cost, Reformable Tooling for Prototyping and Short-run Manufacturing of Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA03049

    The proposing company's reformable, reusable tooling can substantially reduce the time, cost and effort associated with conventional or alternative tooling while providing the flexibility for prototyping iterations, short-run or low rate manufacture through lengthy product cycles. This Phase II project addresses the use of reformable tooling materials and tooling systems for the production of prot ...

  8. 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 ...

  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 ...
