  2. Low Toxicity, Non-cryogenic Liquid Propellant Upper Stage Engine

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: MDA18T005

    Our vision for the next generation missile and space propulsion engine is a flexible and non-toxic propulsion technology using HAN/kerosene, offering variable thrust with a high degree of mission tailoring. Additionally, high bulk density of HAN/kerosene bi-propellant improves stage mass fraction and delivers performance metrics that exceed current toxic storable propellants. We propose an innovat ...

  3. Equester Green Propellant Turbopump

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T005

    During the proposed Phase 1 research and development effort, the project team will design an innovative turbopump system for a target vehicle upper stage using “Green" liquid propellants that meet Missile Defense Agency's requirements. The use of a turbopump will result in an upper stage that has a greater than 50% improvement in delta velocity in comparison to a previously designed, pressure fe ...

  5. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future space missions will utilize small spacecraft with advanced sensor systems. Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease noise and increase sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature. The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enable future missions. Creare proposes to develo ...

  7. Two-color Infrared Laser Arrays for Scene Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A17AT018

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (> 1Kx1K), response time < 1 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame ...
