  2. Production Enhancements for Integrated Anti-Tamper Technologies

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: MDA07028

    The primary focus of Phase II is to undertake a disciplined product development of a new Anti-Tamper technology of very thin foils that can detect both physical tampering and a broad range of magnetic/EM/RF based (non-contact) probing. This program will conclude with affordable and reliable manufacture of devices that can meet avionic and shipboard platform systems electronics integration specifi ...

  3. High Fidelity Missile Hardbody Plume Interaction Modeling

    SBC: Propulsion Science & Technology Inc            Topic: MDA07018

    The development of innovative sensor technologies requires a complete (both spectral and spatial) knowledge of missile hardbody and exhaust plume signature characteristics of current and evolving threat systems. However, measurement programs alone on domestic and foreign ballistic missiles cannot provide the level of characterization necessary to fully support sensor and algorithm development. The ...

  4. Maneuvering Target Phenomenology

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA07021

    Modeling of missile plume signature emissions play a crucial role in supporting system-oriented studies in a number of important areas related to detection and identification of the rocket motor during high altitude maneuvers. Examples of these areas include early warning systems, post launch warning detection, missile typing algorithms, discrimination and background clutter discrimination. The g ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Refrigeration System with Integrated Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA08049

    The Airborne Laser (ABL) program has significant cooling requirements that until present can only be addressed by mechanical refrigeration systems. These include cooling of the various high powered solid state lasers currently used on the ABL for tracking and ranging as well as standby cooling for the basic hydrogen peroxide (BHP) loops on the Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL). The proposed inte ...

  7. Enhancements to Continuum Plume Flowfield Models for Transitional Flow Simulations

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA08034

    Characteristics of missile plume signature emissions have a great potential to enhance defensive capabilities in a number of important areas related to Ballistic Missile Defense Systems (BMDS). Supporting MDA’s engineering applications related to missile typing, discrimination, tracking, algorithm development, etc. requires estimation of many parameters by the plume models, which can be very exp ...

  8. Manufacturing Process Maturation for Propulsion Technology: Structural Insulators

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA08018

    MDA missile systems employ solid rocket motors and divert and attitude control systems (DACS) to propel and guide kinetic energy weapons. These systems create hot, high pressure gases that impose high heat loads on surrounding metal structures and electronic controls. Exist-ing designs use ablative insulators (e.g. EPDM) and monolithic ceramics (e.g. NZP) to limit the temperatures in surrounding ...

  9. Advanced Space Power Management & Energy Storage Technologies

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: MDA08012

    The proposed solid-state PMAD systems with its much smaller/lighter/higher efficiency solution approach could have major impacts to reducing launch weight/volume thereby both reducing launch costs and increasing equipment (sensor) deployment. Ceramic power management offer enormous benefits to space-based PMAD systems. And we are proposing to translate this new technology all the way through to ...

  10. Anti-Tamper Printed Circuit Boards (AT-PCB''s)

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: MDA08041

    The new technology of AT-PCB’s will significantly enhance multi-level anti-tamper protection of military electronics. The design is neither physically or functionally accessible to an adversary, yet it is flexible as to support protection for multiple devices or entire circuit board (rack mounted) assembly. It is amenable to affordable parts acquisition and assembly that minimizes impact to ele ...
