  1. IM Modeling/Simulation Tool for KEI Dynamic/Thermal Loads Associated with Stage Separation

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA06041

    Intense dynamic and thermal loads will occur during stage-separation events that are of major concern from both operational and safety viewpoints. The insensitive-munitions (IM) stimuli and thermal/dynamic response associated with such events has received very little attention, yet this is of major concern for the KEI vehicle undergoing Stage 1 to Stage 2 separation. The KEI event is at lower alti ...

  2. Maneuvering Target Phenomenology

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA07021

    Propulsion systems may perform a variety of maneuvers during the ascent phase of flight that can impact the performance of an interceptor or other parts of an MDA system designed to perform threat detection, discrimination, and tracking. Our Phase I effort focuses on building on extending existing plume signature software. A main technical objective is to establish the various components and app ...

  3. Optimal Sensor Scheduling for Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA06009

    Our Phase I research involved the development of an innovative sensor scheduling algorithm in support of Ballistic Missile Defense. This algorithm schedules multiple diverse and distributed sensors to perform time-critical tasks relating to multiple moving targets; specifically, to detect, classify, localize, track, support the interception of, and conduct BDA for ballistic missiles throughout t ...

  4. Track Correlation / Sensor Netting

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA07046

    The project objective is to develop a tracking algorithm that will fuse detections and tracks provided by a network of radar sensors with detections and tracks provided by a network of electro-optical (EO) sensors into multi-system tracks. The intent is to thereby achieve increased state estimation and classification accuracy in tracking ballistic missiles. Both target kinematic states and featur ...

  5. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptors for its BMDS. Imaging technology is crucial to this effort for several purposes, including navigation, false-alarm/decoy identification, and estimation of position and speed of potential targets. Although high-resolution imaging systems are readily available, these require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture optics, whic ...

  6. Production Enhancements for Integrated Anti-Tamper Technologies

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: MDA07028

    The primary objective of this Phase I program will be to demonstrate a greatly improved manufacturing and production techniques for die packaging of anti-tamper capabilities. We aim to show through manufacture engineering research, software development and hardware prototypes, a new low-cost technique for multi-threat capable Anti-Tamper (AT) device manufacture and AT software-based multi-threat ...

  7. Crack Arrest and Structural Repair of High Strength Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructural Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: 07PH1

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest / structural repair technology as a novel crack arrestor tool for high-strength pipelines. The crack arrestor would comprise a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nanocrystalline material applied to the outside of the pipe either in the coating mill during fabrication or in-field during or following constru ...

  8. Structural Repair of Steel Piping by In-Situ Sleeving of Nanostructured Materials

    SBC: Integran Technologies U.S.A. Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the application of a mature nanotechnology-based crack arrest/structural repair technology as a novel in-field pipeline repair tool. The repair would be comprised of a thin layer or sleeve of electrodeposited nancrystalline material applied to the damaged region of the pipe in order to utilize the "crack filling" characteristic of the process. The concept proposed has alr ...

  9. Passive Cooling of Laser Diodes for Use on Satellites

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA07007

    A novel concept integrating, k-Core® (a material system which consists of encapsulated annealed pyrolytic graphite) saddle with a loop heat pipe evaporator is proposed. Due to five fold increase compared to the baseline aluminum, the proposed concept can enable much higher heat flux levels at lesser resistance to the radiator. In addition, the proposed concept will not have any weight penalty co ...

  10. Lightweight Composite Thermal Protection System

    SBC: KION defense Technologies Inc            Topic: MDA07022

    As the technical capabilities of our adversaries improve, it becomes necessary to improve our Ballistic Missile Defense systems capability. Of particular interest are improvements in Thermal Protection Systems and aerostructures for missile interceptors. Greater aerothermal heating and higher stresses require that the outer structure survive higher heat loads and/or dissipate the heat to protect ...
