  1. Advanced Development of Inception Technologies for Requirements Management (ADIT-RM)

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: MDA11030

    Preliminary definition and analysis of Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) requirements in an isolated, manual, and loosely controlled change environment shows significant overlap in effort, resulting in a major increase to cost, schedule, mission classification, subsystem propagation, and trace of system impacts.To assist MDA with movement of BMDS mission objectives to mission requirements, M ...

  2. High Performance Cooled Seeker Window

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA17005

    Infrared (IR) windows operating in the environment experienced by endo-atmospheric interceptors are limited in performance by the high heat fluxes, temperatures, and pressures characteristic of these environments. Window temperature can exceed 900 C from exposure to the high heat fluxes and temperatures associated with hypersonic flight. Existing materials are limited by poor mechanical and optica ...

  3. Radiation-defect mitigation in InAs/GaSb strained-layer superlattice infrared detectors

    SBC: Truventic LLC            Topic: MDA16011

    This Phase II SBIR project will advance the technical readiness level (TRL) of our Phase-I-demonstrated strategy for mitigating radiation damage in GaSb/InAs Type II Strained-Layer-Superlattice (SLS) long-wave infrared (LWIR) detectors.Our mitigation strategy will be optimized for detectors to be deployed in interceptor seeker systems that will be exposed to radiation in the near-Earth orbital env ...

  4. Prototyping of Transform-Domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: MDA16012

    QuNav proposes to validate and prototype a TRansform-domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction (TRIMAC). TRIMAC utilizes joint time/frequency domain processing of inertial sensor data in order to mitigate INS drift in the absence of external navaids (such as GPS). Frequency-domain implementation is particularly designed to improve the inertial performance in high-vibration missile enviro ...

  5. Industrial-quality acceleration of MDAs missile defense simulation infrastructures A novel theory of optimal data compression inspired on the OSF

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: MDA17004

    MDAs Objective-Simulation-Framework (OSF) is a crucial infrastructure for improving the nations BMDS. Albeit successful in enabling high-quality ground tests, OSFs distributed simulations are hampered by hefty data transmissions that could consume up to 50% of the time in a single run. To address this problem, and with the ultimate goal of substantially accelerating OSF transmissions, Accelogic pr ...

  7. Performance optimized hierarchical microstructure propellant for future small interceptor rocket motors

    SBC: Helicon Chemical Company LLC            Topic: MDA18004

    Future MDA interceptors require advanced propulsion capabilities, with higher performance in smaller, volume-constrained systems. Innovative propellant chemistry is needed to enable substantially greater performance in smaller packages. One factor limiting the maximum performance achievable in modern propellants is the slow ignition and combustion of the propellants metal fuel particles, typically ...

  8. Radiation Hardened Interceptor Seeker Sensor Technologies

    SBC: Truventic LLC            Topic: MDA16011

    We propose a means of mitigating the effects of radiation damage in long-wave infrared photo-detectors for interceptor systems in near-Earth orbit. Specifically, minority carrier transport in radiation-damaged InAs/GaSb strained-layer superlattice nBn photo detectors will be electrically manipulated to restore photo-detector quantum efficiency after gamma radiation. The method is real-time, remot ...

  9. Transform-Domain Mechanization for Software-Based Enhancement of Inertial Navigation Performance

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: MDA16012

    QuNav proposes to develop a TRansform-domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction (TRIMAC) in order to improve the accuracy of inertial navigation in the absence of external aids. TRIMAC will implement a transform-domain INS mechanization, which uses an exact analytical solution of underlying inertial differential equations (as opposed to traditionally applied numerical approximations) thu ...

  10. Programmable Signal Generator Module

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA16023

    MaXentric proposes the MaX-PrISM, which exploits a novel packaging solution to create a modular programmable signal generator. The flexible system will provide the ideal solution for current and future missile flight test telemetry needs through its ability to generate various programmable waveforms. The solution leverages recent advancements in commercially available inter-connect technology, a ...
