  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. Characterization and Incorporation of Vernier Engines within the Plume Modeling Process

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA11028

    Plume signature phenomenology plays an increasingly important role in the development of a wide variety of missile defense technologies, both at the tactical and strategic levels. With the emergence of recent threats, plume signature phenomenology is increasingly central to Missile Defense Agencys fundamental mission of development of a Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). The Missile Defense ...

  3. Intelligent Reasoning on the Impact of Changes to System Models and Requirements

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: MDA11T003

    As complex systems develop, there are inevitably changes to requirements and the system models as the team members formulate a more clear understanding of the customer needs and possible solutions. Often these changes are not coordinated since it is difficult to predict how one change may affect another and current requirements management and system modeling tools don't provide the type of two way ...

  4. Gallium Arsenide (GaAs)- Superlattice Light Emitting Diode Arrays (SLEDS)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: MDA13017

    We propose to monolithically integrate an infrared light emitting diode (IRLED) array on the backside of a GaAs substrate whose frontside contains an array of driver circuits. We will develop smaller GaAs substrate via technology to enable smaller pixel pitch and realize a large-scale GaAs-SLEDS read-in integrated circuit (RIIC). Our team consists of experts in IRLED fabrication, RIIC design, Ga ...

  5. Process Optimization of Needled Carbon/ silica carbide (C/SiC) Structural Insulators

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA13025

    Some missiles employ a throttleable divert and altitude control system (TDACS) to maneuver the kill vehicle to the target. Hot gas valve components in the TDACS must survive long burn times at high pressures and high temperatures. Recently the team of Materials Research & Design (MR&D), Allcomp, and Southern Research Institute (SoRI) has developed a needled C/SiC composite that exhibits strength ...

  7. Advanced Power Storage Systems for Interceptors

    SBC: LithChem Energy / Div. of TOXCO, inc.            Topic: MDA11024

    In support of the Missile Defense Agencys Interceptor Missile Program, LithChem Energy (LCE) proposes its MDA Phase II Advanced Power Storage System for Interceptors. LCEs Interceptor Missile Lithium Reserve Battery Program and the successful completion of its MDA SBIR Phase I, resulted in the development and redesign of the basic battery cell for a 50% increase in power density, improved the con ...

  9. LOW COST MODULE DEVELOPMENT (kTC k016)

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    kTC's high performance thermal core technology offers the potential of significant cost savings by allowing the use of low cost commercial components without the need for liquid flow through thermal cores. kTC's encapsulated APG thermal core is a highconductivity (>1000WmL) macrocomposite comprised of annealed pyrolytic graphite (AG) encapsulated within an aluminum sheet. In Phase I, k Technolog ...

  10. Graphite Foam Core Heat Exchangers for Thermal Management

    SBC: Materials Resources International            Topic: N/A

    MRi proposes to further the demonstration of graphite foam heat exchanger fabrication technology utilizing its innovative active solder joining alloys and processes (S-Bond). The proposed Phase II will build on the success of the Phase I feasibilitystudies that showed the active solder joined Gr-foam core heat exchangers to have over 15 x the heat transfer capacity as aluminum finned heat exchang ...
