  1. A Miniature Non-Contact Rail Temperature Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 081FR2

    The Phase I SBIR project will evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a low cost sensor to obtain rail temperatures from a moving train.  The two innovative parts of the proposed sensor are (1) a rugged four wavelenght high frequency sensor that accurately measures the natural radiation emitted by the rails, and (2) an advanced algorithm that provides a emissivity compensated temperature f ...

  2. Electric Pyrogens and Systems for Safer In-line Inititation of Rocket Motors

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA08045

    Electrically Solid Propellants (ESP) are a new class of energetic material that can be formulated as a pyrogen having several safety advantages over BKNO3. These ESP are inherently safe from accidental ignition being controllable via electrical power input. When an ESP is fitted with electrodes and a current of the required voltage is applied, it ignites and continues to energetically burn until ...

  3. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptor technology for its BMDS. High-quality imagery 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, they require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture o ...

  4. Vapor Containment and Fire Suppression System for Hypergolic Propellants

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA08046

    Hydrazine-based fuels and nitrogen tetroxide-based oxidizers have been the propellants of choice for many propulsion systems over the last several decades due to the propellant combination’s high specific impulse, storability, rapid hypergolic ignition, and moderate densities. Unfortunately, these propellants are highly toxic and pose a significant risk of fire in the event of a spill. These ...
