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.
SBC: FMW COMPOSITE SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: MDA08005
FMW Composite Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Aerojet (OEM), proposes to develop nano-enhanced titanium alloy components for advanced light weight Divert and attitude control systems (DACS), which are capable of replacing current materials to achieve improved performance, net weight reductions, improve producibility, improve reliability, and lower cost. A plan of approach will be developed us ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC) Topic: MDA08020
Extreme heating conditions of future MDA missions are too severe for existing low-density systems (i.e., PICA – Phenolic Impregnated Carbon Ablator); and existing high-density systems (i.e., carbon-carbon, carbon-phenolic) are too heavy and thermally inefficient. The proposed effort seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of wrapping a lightweight, rigid carbon foam with a carbon-carbon outerlayer ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: VOXTEL, INC. Topic: MDA08002
A radiation-hard, 1064-nm sensitive, single-photon-sensitive avalanche photodiode (APD) detector with photon detection efficiency (PDE) and dark count rate (DCR) superior to state-of-the-art Geiger-mode APDs, and with two orders of magnitude faster maximum count rate (MCR) will be developed. Geiger APDs are constrained by a fundamental tradeoff between DCR and MCR: if the APD is cooled to reduce D ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
