  1. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Ness Engineering, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Radio Frequency Directed Energy Weapons (RFDEW) are maturing sufficiently to become a threat to sensitive circuits onboard military platforms. With a large number of active elements, Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) phased array radar units are particularly susceptible and require improvement over the current state-of-the-art in limiter technology. This is particularly needed in the develop ...

  2. Modeling of Lithium-Ion Cell Performance

    SBC: Quallion LLC            Topic: MDA10T004

    Quallion LLC is pleased to submit this proposal in response to the solicitation for"Modeling of Lithium-ion Cell Performance."This proposal focuses on the area of interest relating to"accelerated life testing for LEO because the processes that occur at the anode and cathode at high DoD"s (60+%) are poorly understood as to how they relate to low DoD"s (30% and lower)."Quallion has developed a refer ...

  3. Modeling and Verification of Li-Ion Cells Under Accelerated Life Testing

    SBC: Global Aerospace Corporation            Topic: MDA10T004

    Rechargeable Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) cell technology is attractive for MDA space satellites. But, because this technology is relatively new and is still evolving, its performance and behavior must be characterized by laboratory life testing that is very time consuming and expensive. A requirement for a 10-year real-time cell life test could delay the incorporation of Li-Ion cell technology into MDA s ...

  5. High-Speed Three-Channel Photonic Time Delay Unit

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative, super-miniature, fast-switching array-based photonic time delay device is being developed for the active electronically scanned-array (AESA) MDA and Navy radars. The design is based on the fast electro-optic effect, the super miniature fiber-lens collimation array, and the existing WDM photonic true time delay technologies. In Phase I Agiltron has successfully demonstrated the core ...

  7. Advanced Passive and Active Sensors for Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: MDA08T004

    Nu-Trek is teaming with Arizona State University and Raytheon Vision Systems to develop a ROIC with on-chip data conversion. The ROIC uses Nu-Trek"s ultra low power ADC buffer, ADC core, and LVDS pre-driver. The ROIC is being developed for Raytheon"s Next-Gen, dual-band, IR FPAs. Three Nu-Trek innovations that will be implemented in the ROIC are the ultra low power successive approximation registe ...

  8. Super Pixel Focal Plane Array Sensor

    SBC: CYAN SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: MDA08T004

    In SFPA Phase I we developed a common ROIC that does not limit the performance of the emerging FPAs This ROIC uses a low noise input circuit and will facilitate direct comparison of the results obtained between different groups that may be using different SLS material combinations, unit cell designs or fabrication process, and especially different passivation approaches. The common platform will b ...

  9. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T006

    The first sentinel of ABL’s present target acquisition suite is a passive infrared search and track sensor of 1970s vintage, which we propose replacing with HyPAWS. HyPAWS is a low-cost passive wide-field of view staring sensor. Several such units suffice to provide full 360-degree view coverage. Leveraging revolutionary sensing techniques in ongoing development, HyPAWS offers advanced detect ...

  10. Physics Based Modeling of Hydrometeor/ Aerodynamic Interactions due to Ballistic Missiles Radomes

    SBC: AQUILA LABORATORY, LLC            Topic: MDA06T013

    Hydrometeor impact/erosion qualification evaluations of aerospace vehicle components have to relate testing carried out in ground test facilities to what the components experience in the flight environment. The size distribution and condition of the hydrometeors that impact the surface of a radome can differ substantially from what they are in the natural environment before encountering a missile ...
