  1. Innovative Solutions for Improving Discrete Debris Signature Models

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA13012

    It is important that the sensor signatures of models used in missile defense simulations match the fidelity requirements of the system being tested or assessed.For radar systems this corresponds to having Radar Cross Section (RCS) characterizations that stimulate the features associated with important radar functions.In the Phase I of this program we demonstrated the ability to improve the RCS cha ...

  3. Integrated Systems Materials and Design ImprovementComposite Baffled Telescope and Mirror Substrate Manufacturing

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA13006

    The proposed Phase II R&D includes continue development of the honeycomb fabrication method developed in Phase I to assure accuracy and repeatability of the process. MENTIS then proposes to fabricate prototype honeycomb sunshades for telescopes, including those with the secondary mirrors embedded in the honeycomb matrix. Using the composite baffled sunshade developed by MENTIS, BAE will perform ...

  4. 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 ...
