  1. Wideband photonics-based beamformer with multiple beams

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08027

    The multi-beam beamformer can benefit MDA’s radar sensor and communication. In this program, Agiltron proposes a photonics-based, multi-beam, low-loss beamformer. Agiltron’s variable fiber optic time delay lines will provide true time delay for the beamformer to form, steer, point and track the RF beams for ground-base, airborne or other RF systems. The proposed beamformer, leveraging on the r ...

  2. Growth of Large Area CZT Crystals

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA08013

    This proposal seeks to develop a new process for production of large area CdZnTe substrates for large area focal plane arrays. The proposed system promises to overcome innate scale-up obstacles in the current method for production of CdZnTe crystals.

  3. LANguage Conversion Engine (LANCE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07005

    From 1987-1997, DoD required Ada for every software project where new code generation was more than 30% of the effort. With the decline in Ada’s popularity, it has become increasingly difficult to find skilled Ada developers to maintain this legacy code. Code maintainers who don’t know Ada typically convert the code to a language they understand, which is a tedious error-prone process. A conve ...

  4. Simulation Optimization Engine (SIMON) for Missile Defense

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA08036

    As evidenced by recent events, missile defense remains a crucial component for protecting the United States and her allies from potential long range threats. Modeling and simulation (M&S) is recognized by the Missile Defense Agency as a key enabling technology supporting Warfighters and analysts alike in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) design, testing, performance assessment, training, war ...

  7. Calibration techniques for very large arrays

    SBC: GMR RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: MDA08030

    GMR Research & Technology (GMR) proposes to develop real-time digital methods to compensate for analog distortions in large RF arrays. In particular we will address manifold distortions caused by geometry, electronic, and near-field distortions. In this phase of the SBIR effort we will develop this approach for X-band arrays of at least 16 by 16 elements with at least 500 MHz instantaneous bandwi ...

  8. Adaptive Guidance Against Maneuvering Targets for Ballistis Missile Defense


    Existing approaches to guidance and estimation for intercept of maneuvering targets are often dependent on assumed models of maneuvering target behavior. We have shown in Phase I that intercept lethality can be dramatically reduced when an interceptor guidance strategy optimized for a specific maneuvering target type encounters a target whose behavior differs from that of the assumed model. We th ...

  9. The Turbulence-Enhanced Monocular Passive Rangefinding (TEMPR) System for Improved Boost-Phase Ballistic Missile Tracking

    SBC: Argos Intelligence, LLC            Topic: MDA08050

    Argos Intelligence, LLC, proposes to develop the Turbulence-Enhanced Monocular Passive Rangefinding (TEMPR) System, an innovative capability for the passive rangefinding of boost-phase ballistic missiles. The TEMPR System combines standard multispectral imaging with advanced phenomenological models and signal processing for unprecedented rangefinding capability. TEMPR will operate in real time a ...

  10. Development of High Performance AlInN-Based HEMTs

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: MDA08024

    ransistors (HEMTs) by providing a strain-free alternative to AlGaN as the barrier material. In particular, AlInN lattice matched to GaN should exhibit significantly higher polarization-induced charge and drain current, resulting in enhanced high power and high frequency capabilities for GaN HEMTs. However, AlInN alloys are challenging materials to produce due to the difference in growth conditio ...
