  1. Intelligent Molecular Model Kit and Software Suite for Improving High School Chemistry Instruction and Student Achievement

    SBC: MolySym, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Model perception and understanding the spatial structure of organic molecules have historically been a source of difficulty for high school chemistry students. The classic ball-and-stick model, developed in 1865, is still used today to convey the fundamental characteristics of a molecular system. This model is an inadequate representation of a dynamic system, which fails to accurately represent ...

  2. High-Performance Dual-Band MWIR/LWIR Uncooled Imager for ABL IRST Sensors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Agiltron proposes a high-performance dual-band imager for the IRST sensors used in the ABL Wide Area Surveillance System (WASS). To meet the needs of the MDA, the proposed imager will feature simultaneous dual-band MWIR/LWIR operation for increased discrimination capability; megapixel resolution for increased field of view, detection range, and angular resolution; uncooled operation for minimized ...

  3. Very Wide Bandwidth Photonic Adaptive Digital Beamformer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA06033

    An innovative concept for a scalable Adaptive Digital Beamformer that can be applied to the full range of MDA radars is proposed. The concept is photonics based and will support transmit/receive applications over the .1 to 20 ghz band. The design provides a digitally controlled True Time Delay Beamformer effectively adaptive to a phased array in any portion of the spectral coverage. Fine pointing ...

  4. Arbitrage Look-ahead Agents for Market-based Optimization (ALAMO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA06009

    Missile defense takes place in an unpredictable, real-time environment and thus requires an adaptive approach to optimization that dynamically allocates sensors and their supporting resources in response to changing goals and constraints. Here, we propose a system of Arbitrage Look-ahead Agents for Market-based Optimization (ALAMO) to meet the challenge of this real-time resource allocation proble ...

  5. Advanced Space Power Technologies

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: MDA06017

    Eikos Inc. proposes to develop composite carbon nanotube-metal oxide transparent electrodes to enhance the efficiency of three junction solar cells. Eikos leads the world in developing transparent conductive electodes based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Eikos also has demonstrated that the performance of nanotube electrodes can be tuned by using apprpriate binders to stabilize the nanotube network. ...

  7. Development of Digital Receiver/Exciters for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: MDA06032

    Anticipated threats to missile defense radars are a challenging mixture of countermeasures and simulation. Future systems are expected to incorporate multi-channel adaptive digital beam-forming to counter the active threats and therefore require affordable, high performance digital receivers and digital exciters. This phased array radar technology research effort is focused on developing low-cost, ...

  8. High-Speed, Low-Power Embedded ADC (9727)

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: MDA06032

    Hittite proposes to develop an advanced wideband high-speed, low-power ADC for embedded applications such as wafer-scale arrays (WSAs). Offering higher speed and lower power than competing devices, the ADC will advance the state of the art and enable next-generation digital sub-arrays. A combination of innovative design and SiGe BiCMOS technology will be used to realize the ADC. Implemented as a k ...

  9. Thin Copper-Graphite Composite Cold Plate for Thermal Management of High Density Electronics


    Copper-graphite composite is proposed for a thin liquid-cooled cold plate for high density electronic thermal management. The proposed cold plate will have CTE in the range of 2~9x10-6 /°C to match those of semiconductors such as SiC, silicon, GaAs, as well as ceramic substrates. The composites have a thermal conductivity of ~200 W/m K in the through-plane direction and ~300 W/m K in planar dir ...

  10. Thermally Initiated Venting Systems (TIVS)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA06036

    Solid Rocket Motor (SRM) self-detonation is an unacceptable and highly dangerous occurrence. A system that would reduce the likelihood of this occurring would be highly beneficial to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). Midé proposes to design a Thermally Initiated Venting Systems (TIVS) that will decrease the likelihood of SRM premature detonation in its canister. When the temperature and pressu ...
