  1. High Pressure Compacted Non-Eroding Throats for Controllable Axial Upper Stages

    SBC: UTRON KINETICS LLC            Topic: MDA08007

    In response to MDA’s needs for non-eroding throats for controllable axial upper stages , UTRON proposes an innovative near net shape fabrication technology called High Pressure Combustion Driven Powder Compaction (CDC) with tremendous potential for cost-effective manufacturing of advanced cermet type of alloys of ceramics such as micro/nano HfC, HfB2, HfN, ZrC and/or with high temperature ductil ...

  2. Wideband Sub-Array Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX) Development and Packaging

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA08028

    Next generation Radars (NGR) for MDA will advance closer to the ideal of a fully digitized array and digital beamforming. In a conventional phased array radar (PAR), analog beamforming networks reduce the entire array into a few combined beams (e.g., sum beam, difference beams) at X-band. Next generation PAR will use a hybrid approach, forming many subarray beams in analog, and then performing a ...

  3. Integrated UV/VIS/IR background phenomenology models for radiation transport system trades

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: MDA08032

    Computational Physics, Inc. (CPI) proposes to develop prototype first-principle cloud and terrain physics models integrated into a robust and extensible component architecture that facilitates the assessment of the impact of terrain and cloud radiance and irradiance in the UV/VIS/IR wavebands on missile defense systems. The prototype will also be used to demonstrate support for observational forec ...

  4. Discrimination


    The performance of the Ballistic Missile Defense System depends on a number of factors; one of the most important is the ability to accurately and efficiently discriminate between threats (reentry vehicles) and non-threats (decoys). The DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation (DAC) team proposes to develop a discrimination system based on a novel machine learning algorithm called Maximum Variance Unfoldin ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Global Missile Defense Battle Management

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: MDA08038

    Using our 50+ person-years of experience with business process (BP) modeling, BPEL, SOA, and HCI design, we propose a real-time battle management solution for MDA that will coordinate with multiple dispersed and disparate weapon platforms in achieving accurate and reliable kill results for layered Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD). The system will be designed to globally optimize weapon-target solut ...

  7. RadHard-Morphing-Sensing SuperSkins for Interceptor Kill Vehicles with Enhanced Lethality

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: MDA08003

    NanoSonic has recently developed nanostructured, large area (3’ x 10’) Shape Memory Metal Rubber™ (SM-MR™), a highly flexible, shielding, morphing ballistic defense missile super skin. NanoSonic would develop advanced synergistic morphing-sensing-shielding materials for interceptor kill vehicle structures and as key enablers for state-of-the-art adaptive UAV, missile and munitions airfram ...
