  1. Fluidmath: A Teaching Intervention for Algebra

    SBC: FLUIDITY SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Research demonstrates that technology-focused interventions to teach math and science require substantive professional development prior to classroom implementation. This project is creating an online professional development (OPD) platform for training teachers to integrate FluidMath into basic algebra practice. FluidMath is a software program that recognizes handwritten math formulae and sketche ...

  4. Fast Switching Array for WDM-Photonic Time Delay

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative concept of a fast switching array for high bit-resolution photonic time delay that can be scalable to the ESA systems of MDA/Navy radars is proposed. The design is based on Electro-Optic (EO) effect incorporated with super miniature fiber collimation array, which is suitable to integrate in the current developing fiber based photonic WDM-true time delay technologies. The new EO switc ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Passive Range Estimation from Angle-only Sensor Data (Acq Pointing & Tracking)

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: MDA08050

    We propose to adapt angle-only passive ranging methods developed for use by the submarine force to the problem of range estimation for missiles and rockets. Three particular methods will be examined: parallax or triangulation ranging; tracker/filter algorithms; and the relationship between range and the rate of angle change over time. Parallax ranging is an instantaneous method that uses angle m ...

  7. 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.

  8. 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 ...

  9. Model for Reserve Battery Gas Generators

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA08022

    Reserve lithium oxyhalide and silver/zinc batteries are power sources of choice for many missiles and other weapons systems. These batteries achieve long shelf life by storing the liquid electrolyte separately in a reservoir. Upon activation, the electrolyte is injected quickly into the battery cells, most often using a pyrotechnic gas generator. The overall design of the activation system is a ...

  10. 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 ...
