  1. Improvements in Scintillation Technology for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07004

    High-resolution scintillation crystals and crystal arrays are important components of current and future handheld and arrayed detectors (used for DOD/DTRA applications), and scintillation spectrometers (routinely used in high energy physics research, medical imaging, diffraction, homeland security, nuclear waste clean-up, nuclear treaty verification and safeguards, and geological exploration). Un ...

  2. Miniaturized Thermoacoustic Cryocooler for Missile Defense Applications(1001-247)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    Triton Systems, Inc., proposes to transition a proof of concept cryocooler developed under the MDA STTR Phase I effort, to a miniaturized cooling system that will have commonality and reducibility to serve multiple MDA missions. The proposed cryocooler uses a novel standing wave design to achieve the miniaturization and low weight needed for MDA focal plane array cooling systems. This cryocool ...

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

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Based upon the successful dual-band MWIR/LWIR imaging results demonstrated with our uncooled photomechanical imaging technology in Phase I, Agiltron proposes a high-performance uncooled dual-band imager for the IRST sensors used in the ABL Wide Area Surveillance System (WASS) in Phase II. To meet the needs of the MDA, the proposed imager will feature simultaneous dual-band MWIR/LWIR operation for ...

  4. Synergistic Radiation Shielding of COTS Electronics for HAENS Compliance(1001-163)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA06018

    Triton Systems, Inc is meeting the needs of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for reduced weight and higher performance Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) assets. Triton will integrate a synergistic lightweight radiation shielding system to prevent radiation induced upsets in commercial off-the-shelf electronic components exposed to an exoatmospheric nuclear environment, defined by the HAENS ...

  5. Ballistic Debris Coherent Discrimination and Modeling

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA06014

    The MDA is interested in developing a coherent debris model for ballistic missile debris, and in developing a pre-screener to eliminate debris from classifier consideration. This debris is composed of staging hardware, deployment hardware, and solid rocket motor (SRM) debris. SRM debris is prevalent in missile systems with SRM final stages. At higher frequencies, debris RCS can be higher than r ...

  6. 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 demonstr ...

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


    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) ...

  8. Radiation Resistant Carbon Nanotube ESD & AR Coatings

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: MDA06017

    Eikos, Inc proposes using carbon nanotubes combined with mesostructured thin films to form a radiation stable, electrostatic discharge, and antireflective layer on solar cell cover glass. This composite structure will maintain high power output throughout the operation lifetime of space based solar arrays. In orbit, most satellites are powered by photovoltaic cells, and these solar cells are prote ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Development of Digital Receiver/Exciters for Missile Defense Radars (2007058)

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: MDA06032

    The primary function of missile defense radars is to detect and intercept incoming missiles. As the technology for missile systems is advanced, the next generation of missiles will have added capabilities to deploy countermeasures and masking techniques to foil radar detection. The next generation of radars therefore, must also have added capabilities to counter those advanced threats. One crucial ...
