  1. ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET INVESTIGATION AS A HYPERVELOCITY PROJECTILE LAUNCHER

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A NEW SYSTEM, THE ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET, IS PROPOSED AS A ALTERNATIVE TO CHEMICAL ROCKETS AND ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHERS AS A KINETIC ENERGY WEAPON. THIS SYSTEM APPEARS TO BE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING THE HYPERVELOCITIES NECESSARY IN REASONABLE LAUNCHER LENGTHS, PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT DOES NOT ACCELERATE EITHER THE PROPELLANT OR THE PROPULSION SYSTEM REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE HYPERVELOCITIES. ...

  2. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development efforts are severely limited by expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device that reproduces the physiological ...

  3. Antitamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA09009

    Product Authentication protects the CPI through the Weapon System Life Cycle. LIT Product Authentication is structured into two major components. The Product Authentication Key System (PAKS) derives cryptographic keys from authentication codes provided by the Product Authentication Sensor System (PASS). Equipment lost or compromised is protected from reverse engineering since any effort to open ...

  4. Clutter Suppression and Debris Mitigation Techniques and Algorithms for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA09018

    Abstract The deciBel/SAIC Team Phase II effort will enhance and refine the design, development, and testing the prototype Environment Characterization and Clutter Mitigation Algorithms developed during Phase I. These enhancements will: 1) provide robustness, 2) permit for automation, while expanding applicability, and 3) ensure transition into current builds of BMDS sensor"s tactical software. T ...

  5. DISCRIMINATING DECOYS FROM MISSILE TARGETS BY ABSOLUTE TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT WITH MULTI-COLOR INFRARED FOCAL PLANE ARRAYS

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA08002

    We propose to develop and deliver 2-Color midwave/longwave infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) and a camera based on Type-II InAs/InGaSb strained layer superlattice (SLS) sensor technology. 2-Color SLS FPAs with formats of 320x256 and 640x512 will be delivered, together with a portable 2-Color 320x256 camera. In Phase I, we designed and demonstrated the basic 2-Color midwave/longwave infrared SLS ...

  6. Evaluation of TaC-Based Materials and Nozzle Concepts for Aluminized Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA07024

    Fielding of advanced missile defense interceptors is strongly dependent upon innovative concepts and technologies that can be applied across the Ballistic Missile Defense System to stay ahead of the threat, improve system capabilities and effectiveness, and lower life cycle costs. Tantalum carbide (TaC) based materials are being developed for potential employment as nozzle liners in axial thrust ...

  7. Highly Affordable Net- and Near-Net Forming of Fully Dense TaC for Boost Nozzle Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA05068

    This Phase 2 SBIR proposal addresses the technical and manufacturing challenges associated with development of cost-effective materials solutions for ultrahigh temperature solid rocket motor throat components V particularly those associated with boost nozzle solid rocket motor (SRM) or solid divert/attitude control SDACS components for vehicles such as KEI and SM-3. Exothermics and their Phase 2 ...

  8. Hypervelocity Intercept Modeling with First-Principle, Physics-Based Tools

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA07019

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has become more reliant on First Principles Model and Simulation to assess the effectiveness of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). This is due in part to the continued growth in cost and schedule for ground based testing program that have traditionally been used for such assessments. Results from the Phase I SBIR, MDA-073-019 SBIR, Hypervelocity Interce ...

  9. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Anti-Jam and Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: TRITEC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA08031

    The proposed research promises to replace and/or complement current front end limiter technologies, which do not provide the necessary growth potential for evolving threats, with a technology that does. This would enable design engineers to support MDA GMD radar, communication, and GPS systems advancing threat requirements by applying an advanced limiter technology that counters evolving threats ...

  10. KINETIC ENERGY PROJECTILE LETHALITY ENHANCEMENT

    SBC: Nichols Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED ON A NOVEL IDEA FOR A DESIGN OF A SEMI-SMART PROJECTILE FOR KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS, AND IN PARTICULAR, EML WEAPONS. THE TECHNOLOGY FOR THIS DESIGN IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. IT WOULD BE INTRINSICALLY HARD TO THE 100000 G ACCELERATIONS EXPERIENCE BY AN EML PROJECTILE AND WOULD HAVE A GREATLY IMPROVED PROBABILITY OF HIT (AND KILL) OVER A CLASSICAL DUMB PROJECTILE AGAINST ...
