The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Advanced High Performance, High Energy Density, Ionic Liquid Propellants for Insensitive Munition Compliant Exo-Atmospheric Interceptors

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: MDA18004

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to design, develop and demonstrate a novel insensitive munition compliant, high performance, green storable liquid propellant for advanced exo-atmospheric interceptors. This new propellant formulation can be treated as a monopropellant or as a bipropellant system with predicted specific impulse and density specific impulses exceeding AF-M315E, LMP-103S, and the dens ...

  2. Low SWaP nuclear magnetic resonance gyroscope

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: MDA18005

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) in collaboration with the Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) proposes advancement of a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) gyroscope as an inertial sensor for missile and hypervelocity projectile applications.In the NMR gyroscope, the quantum mechanical angular momentum spin in the nuclei of a xenon gas forms the sensing mechanism.Since this atomic vapor has no moving par ...

  3. Wide bandgap SiC based field effect transistor for radiation hard microelectronics

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA18007

    The goal of this project is to develop basic semiconductor components (field-effect transistors) that can be deployed in highly radioactive environments, such as nuclear plants, space, radioactive waste storage facilities. Ionizing radiation often has a detrimental influence on the performance of microelectronics components. We propose to develop a prototype microelectronics technology for use in ...

  5. Trajectory Simulation using PSM

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA17T002

    Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to develop a method for efficiently running federated simulations of atmospheric and orbital rocket flight. Tritons proposed method will be able to get information between time steps without the need for interpolation and will significantly reduce the computational time needed to run Federated simulations.Approved for Public Release | 18-MDA-9522 (23 Feb 18)

  6. Special Tooling and Processes for Repeatable Adhesive Application

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16014

    Threaded fastening systems in vibrating environments require a secondary locking feature, augmenting primary locking provided by an applied preload, to prevent vibration-induced loosening. The secondary locking feature can be mechanical, prevailing torque-type, or an adhesive. Self-locking nutplates and inserts are often more expensive than adhesives, require retorquing or on-torque adjustments, a ...

  7. Database and Numerical Procedures for Extending the Spectral Range of Plume Signature Codes

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA16004

    Over many data collection campaigns, a large number of propulsion related signature events have been observed across an extended range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The current suite of plume modeling tools contains the basic framework for flowfield and signature generation, but lacks the underlying physical mechanisms and supporting property databases to properly account for alternate waveband ...

  8. Standardized Atmospheric Generator (SAG) for Inline Environment Generation

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA16003

    We intend to dramatically improve the performance of the Standardized Atmosphere Generator (SAG), an environmental background model used to characterize the atmospheric state.SAG is an empirical model which creates a complete picture of the atmospheric state for electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) and radar (RF) systems as well as trajectory computations for targeting and tracking.These systems requi ...

  9. Vis/IR Atmospheric Tool (VISIRAT)

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA16009

    Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Model and Simulation (M&S) capabilities include Core Truth models (CTM) capable of simulating all physics governing missile detection, tracking and intercept events. A key component of the simulation tools is an accurate and fast atmospheric radiation model to describe the target signals as they propagate through the atmosphere to the sensor. Ideally, such a model shou ...

  10. Fast Running Re-Entry Vehicle Wake Signature Tools

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA16019

    The flight environment conditions encountered by re-entry vehicles (RVs) and RV associated spent boosters and flight hardware can produce complex wakes that are difficult to model.Under such high dynamic pressure and angle-of-attack (HDAOA) conditions, ablating heat shield material is entrained in the flow in the form of gases and particulates and reactive chemistry between atmospheric and ablatin ...
