  1. Innovative Low-Temperature Process for Anti-Tamper Coatings(1001-164)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA06051

    This proposal addresses the MDA"s need to develop a manufacturing process for application of anti-tamper coatings to protect critical program information and technology. The proposed anti-tamper coating and processing techniques will protect military electronics against reverse-engineering while being gentle enough to be applied to sensitive electronics. During the Phase I, Triton has demonstrat ...

  2. Thin Copper-Graphite Composite Cold Plate and High Performance Al/Gr Composites for Thermal Management of High Density Electronics

    SBC: METAL MATRIX CAST COMPOSITES, LLC (DBA M            Topic: MDA06030

    Two approaches to high performance base plates for advanced thermal management applications are proposed. Inexpensive high performance Al/Gr composites have been developed with a quasi-isotropic thermal conductivity (TC) of 600 to 750 W/mK and corresponding thermal expansion (CTE) of 7 to 3 ppm/K. CTE matching base plates for advanced multi-channel phased array radar systems enable hard (solder) ...

  3. Next Generation Terrain and Cloud Background Models for System Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA08032

    Atmospheric effects, especially the impact of clouds, play a major role in remote sensing applications, and in particular, the design of defense and surveillance systems. Of special importance, are the effects of clouds and terrain on ballistic missile launch detection and tracking. The detection of ballistic missile launches beneath an optically opaque cloud field in the presence of a solar-ref ...

  4. Propulsion Kinetics for Alternate Wavelength Signatures (PAWS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA08033

    Several current BMDS sensors and advanced technology concepts are using or considering passive exploitation of signature features outside the 2.5-5.0 micron range. However, current signature models are focused primarily on this relatively narrow band in the infrared. We propose to develop a set of software modules called PAWS (Propulsion Kinetics for Alternate Wavelength Signatures) and integrate ...

  5. SATT (Smart Anti-Tamper Technologies)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA08043

    The protection of CPI from unwanted transfer is necessary to ensure a tactical advantage over our adversaries. Various powered sensor response techniques have been developed for AT systems. These systems require a means to be constantly powered for long periods of time. A downed or stored weapon system may need protection for many years removed from a primary power source. Energy storage technol ...

  6. Development of Validated Plume Signature Codes at Nontraditional Wavelengths Utilizing Ground Based Simulation Facilities

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA08033

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to utilize ground-based experimental simulation facilities to obtain critical velocity dependent cross section data necessary to extend and validate MDA/DESHs high altitude plume signature model: SOCRATES-P. This work will enhance the capability of SOCRATES-P to accurately account for plume phenomenology with optical signatures outside the traditional 2.5V5.0 ...

  7. The Blow-down Large Angle-of-attack Signatures Thrust Termination Toolkit (BLAST3)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10022

    The outcome of the proposed SBIR program will be the development of the Blow-down Large Angle-of-attack Signatures Thrust Termination Toolkit (BLAST3). BLAST3 will consist of a physics-based framework of modules for producing simulated imagery and radar scenes of solid rocket motor thrust termination plumes and debris, including time-dependent radar and infrared spectral signatures. This approac ...

  8. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Wake and Reentry Flows

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10023

    The flowfields surrounding reentry and other hypersonic vehicles are complex and challenging to model. At hypersonic velocities, the flow may ionize and form a plasma sheath around the vehicle, ablating heat shield material can be entrained in the flow, and non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) effects can become important. All these effects can change the vehicle electro-optic (EO) and radar ...

  9. Innovative Nanostructured Anodes for High-Capacity Li-Ion Space Batteries (1001-871)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA10034

    Triton Systems, Inc. will scale up and commercialize an innovative nanostructured anode material for use in advanced high-energy-capacity space-rated lithium-ion batteries. The new anode material has the possibility of increasing the capacity of lithium-ion batteries by a factor of 10. The deposition processes used to manufacture the anode are non-vacuum-based and large area, lowering the cost i ...

  10. Fast Wafer-Scale Characterization Techniques for CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA10031

    This program will develop a turnkey system capable of rapidly producing high-resolution maps of transmittance, energy gap, composition, lattice constant, second-phases and residual strain fields in a variety of substrates critical to Ballistic Missile Defense. The characterization tool developed under this program will address the needs of the fabricators of infrared detectors and focal plane arra ...
