  1. Trajectory Simulation using PSM

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA17T002

    Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to develop a method for efficiently running federated simulations of atmospheric and orbital rocket flight. Tritons proposed method will be able to get information between time steps without the need for interpolation and will significantly reduce the computational time needed to run Federated simulations.Approved for Public Release | 18-MDA-9522 (23 Feb 18)

  2. Novel Structure-Preserving Algorithms for Accurate Rocket Trajectory Propagation

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA17T002

    The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...

  5. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: MDA17T004

    The Ground-Based Interceptor (GBI) missile is the weapon component of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system that consists of a rocket booster and kinetic kill vehicle. Recently, MDA has sought technologies to improve the performance of the booster vehicle (BV). To date, studies have shown that reductions in weight have a direct impact on overall effectiveness. The current proposal aims t ...

  6. Programmable Multi-Frequency Transmitter for Missile Communciations

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA16T005

    Improving capabilities of telemetry systems for next generation e.g. (MOKV) missile defense launch vehicles, kill vehicles, and test/target vehicles subsystems can transform operational testing of such systems and has the potential to increase capabilities of systems that rely on radio communications. As these systems, and their test scenarios become get more complex they will require unprecedente ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
