  1. Development of a Radiation Hardened Multi-Color LWIR and VLWIR Focal Plane Array Technology

    SBC: AVYD DEVICES, INC.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Our Phase I proposal addresses the demonstration of the feasibility to develop a radiation hardened technology for dual band HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays which would include the LWIR/VLWIR wave bands of 7-14 micrometers and 14-18 micrometers. In Phase II, we plan to implement the approach to demonstrate VLWIR dual color detectors and Read Out ICs culminating in the demonstration of focal plane array ...

  2. Missile Plume Simulation Improvements Using GPU Chemical Kinetics Coprocessors

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA05T018

    High-fidelity missile plume flowfield simulations of MDA interest require use of detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms, which significantly improve IR/UV/RCS/visible signature prediction but entail long solution runtimes for completion. These long runtimes result from the required iterative solution of large systems of stiff, non-linear chemical source terms at each CFD mesh point; this curtails t ...

  3. 3D Interfaces for Improved Interpretation of Hard-To-Discriminate Ballistic Objects

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA05T008

    This effort will propose the development of the techniques utilizing the stereo vision technology for creation of a 3D image combined with a 3D rendering of the target tracks and their associated ballistic objects. The main objective of the Phase I effort is to investigate and validate an integrated architecture to observe moving objects and visualize 3-D stereo images based on the data from two o ...

  4. Insensitive Munitions Technology

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T006

    It is proposed to qualitatively and quantitatively investigate the `Bonfire' insensitive munition (IM) characteristics of solid rocket motors. The study will focus upon developing fundamental understanding of the transient heat transfer, heat flux and the overall thermal load to and through the motor case's various multi-layered materials at elevated temperatures up to solid propellant bondline ig ...

  6. Small Form Factor, High Precision, High Bandwidth, Low Latency, Inertial Measurement Unit Based on Resonant Micro Optic Gyro (RMOG IMU)

    SBC: INNOVATIVE BUSINESSS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA05T022

    Next generation missile interceptor seekers have migrated toward a strap-down seeker configuration, the IMU subsystems for these applications need to perform well under harsher environments, with respect to the gimbaled seeker systems of the past, due to the higher vibration and angular acceleration environments they will experience. The sensor package (IMU/INS) needs to maintain performance in a ...

  7. Computer Network Defense Technologies

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: MDA05T010

    Irvine Sensors Corporation (ISC) together with North Carolina State University propose to develop a novel methodology using advance hardware stacking techniques to detect, mitigate, and track insider threats. Information gathered using this new methodology allows for tracking of insider threats across multiple system architectures that use Variable Message Formats (VMF) into a reconfigurable dev ...

  8. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: L'GARDE INC.            Topic: MDA05T005

    We are proposing to support the development of a daily, on-orbit, calibration test opportunity for BMDS assets. Our proposed system would include a conical vehicle, about 2 m long, and a spherical vehicle about 1 m in diameter. Phase 1 concentrates on the radar signature of such targets, and develops methods to tailor these signatures so that, in the future, IR and/or visible signatures could be ...

  9. Stratospheric Electrical Environments Applicable To Photovoltaic Arrays On HAA Platforms

    SBC: LIGHTNING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04T008

    The objective of this program is to characterize the upper atmosphere electrical environment so that the effects of this environment on high altitude airships (HAA) and other platforms intending to operate in this environment can be determined, and protection methods developed. This includes transient luminous events (TLEs), such as red sprites and blue jets and their associated electrical propert ...

  10. Design and Development of Radiation Hardened ROIC for Multi-color LWIR/VLWIR Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Radiation Hardened Multi-color infrared (IR) focal planes are required for MDA/SMDC systems applications . Key to meeting these system requirements is to develop multi-color radiation hardened HgCdTe focal plane arrays for LWIR band ( 7-14 microns) and VLWIR band with wavelength of greater than 14 microns with high pixel uniformity, reduced readout noise, improved resolution, and higher temperatur ...
