  1. 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 ...

  4. Passive IR Sensors Based on High Quantum Efficiency P-on-N Type-II Strained Layer Superlattices

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA06013

    We propose to develop a high-performance longwave infrared focal plane array (FPA) based on Type-II InAs/(In)GaSb strained-layer-superlattice (SLS) technology and deliver it packaged in a portable handheld CAMERA. In Phase 1, a matrix of recipes was designed and grown, several wafers were processed, arrays were fabricated and characterized, and material and process issues identified. In Phase 2, ...

  5. Advanced Signal Processing Technologies for BMDS Radars

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA06031

    A critical component of the Ballistic Missile Defense System is the high power radar. These radars support the capability to identify, assess, and engage threats to the U.S., deployed forces, and allies. The current radar deployments utilize single-instance, symmetric multiprocessor machines. Both HP and SGI SMP processors have become or are becoming obsolete and the radars will require an upgr ...

  6. Automated Battle Management / Planning Aids

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA06007

    The lack of correlation and common track numbering between the multiple data sources reporting Ballistic Missile events has proven repeatedly to be a major issue across all levels of Air and Missile Defense. This premise has been exemplified in both Operational and Live, Virtual Constructive (LVC) environments. The key to utilizing this data effectively for Battle Management is turning the data ...

  7. Total Hypergolic Propellant Leak Detector System

    SBC: RAZOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA06039

    Razor Technologies proposes to develop and demonstrate a total hypergolic propellant (both fuel & oxidizer) leak detection system. Long life, small, low power consumption, inexpensive, conducting polymer sensors for the measurement of fuel and oxidizer concentrations have been successfully demonstrated in Phase I of this project. The proposed Phase II research will further optimize and refine th ...

  9. Accurate Insensitive Munitions Modeling Tool Coupling Detailed Chemical Kinetics and Physical Models

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA06041

    Understanding the response of solid rocket motors under cook-off conditions is important to the safety of the military’s weapon arsenal. In this SBIR, CFDRC, teamed with Merrill Beckstead of Brigham Young University (BYU) and ATK Launch Systems, proposes to develop a software toolkit for simulating the response of solid rocket motors (SRM) to fast cook-off events. The complete software package w ...
