The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. LoadPath Enhanced Gimbal System

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: MDA17006

    Expanded operating environments, evolving interceptor platforms, and increased performance thresholds have given rise to technical challenges to existing seeker gimbal systems that necessitate evolution of the State-of-the-art (SOTA). LoadPaths approach is to develop flexure-based gimbal concepts that maintain or enhance existing system operating abilities such as field of regard, line of sight (L ...

  4. Multi-Object Deployment System (MODS)

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: MDA15018

    Ballistic missile threats include the potential for complex target scenes including countermeasures and debris in addition to lethal objects. In order to defend against this threat, the Ballistics Missile Defense System (BMDS) has been developed to intercept the targets. The construct of using multiple interceptors on a single target is both costly and taxing on the BMDS command control. However, ...

  6. Low Light Short Wave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA15022

    Current focal plane array (FPA) technologies for imaging in low-light conditions in the short wave infrared (SWIR) are limited by poor quantum efficiency and/or poor noise characteristics. To address this need, a new SWIR-sensitive linear-mode avalanche photodiode detector array, will be optimized for low-light imaging, fabricated, and demonstrated. Unlike existing SWIRavalanche photodiodes (APDs) ...
