  1. Fast Self-Adaptive Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: MDA10T003

    To reduce the cost of new hardware development, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is developing fast new computational tools that enable in-the-loop hardware testing. The MDA and contractors have developed high-fidelity scene modeling tools such as the Fast Line-of-sight Imagery for Target and Exhaust-plume Signatures (FLITES) to test optical signature trackers. Currently, these high-speed tools ar ...

  2. Very Large Area Microchannel Plate Neutron Detectors

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    NOVA Scientific, Inc., teamed with the Electronics Group of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proposes to construct very large area Microchannel Plate neutron detectors. The applications of these much larger format detectors will serve an exceptionally broad range of government agencies from neutron scattering detectors for DOE to nuclear material panel detectors for NNSA, and ultimately to nuclear m ...

  3. Biofilm Remediation of Hydraulic Fracturing Flowback Water in the Marcellus Shale

    SBC: Frac Biologics, Inc.            Topic: 28a

    Frac fluids are viscous solutions that are pumped under high pressure to fracture subsurface formations for recovery of natural gas. As it is pumped to the surface, the flowback water picks up large quantities of various contaminants that make it difficult to dispose or recycle. Though this water contains hazardous substances such as heavy metals (i.e. copper, lead, zinc, and cadmium), arsenic, se ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. PROPULSION MATERIALS MODELING TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AND REDUCE COST

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA05T002

    MDA is developing materials for several applications including hypersonic missiles, ma-neuvering reentry vehicles, advanced solid rocket motors, and divert and attitude control sys-tems. All of these applications employ components that must operate at temperatures above 3000°F. Viable structural materials for these conditions can be loosely grouped as graphite, ce-ramics (e.g. oxides, carbides) ...

  7. Multifunctional Applique for Spacecrafts

    SBC: Sensortex            Topic: MDA05T019

    This program will develop an appliqu"¦ based on a multi-layer film which will be conductive as well as possessing good optical properties (low ¦A, high ¦Å). The film will be designed to be highly resistant to the space environment. This white, conductive appliqu"¦ will be easily applied to most external areas of the spacecraft. The appliqu"¦ is expected to have multiple layers, each indiv ...

  8. Full-spectrum Integrated Reaction Evaluation and Synthesis (FIRES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T017

    Highly energetic chemical processes play a central role in many military and commercial applications. For example, spectral emissions from missile plumes, arising from high-velocity chemical interactions of exhaust gases with the atmosphere, are used to detect, track, and identify threat targets. Detailed, quantitative knowledge of the energy-dependent chemical reaction cross sections and rates i ...

  9. Advanced Simulator for Neutron Induced Single Event Effects (SEE) in Electronics

    SBC: TECHSOURCE, INC.            Topic: MDA05T001

    We propose to study the development of a dedicated neutron source for Single Event Effects (SEE)to be collocated and intregrated with an existing neutron source (LENS)at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility (IUCF). The study will maximize use of existing facilities to maximize the cost/benefit for the SEE neutron source.

  10. Catalytic Coal Gasification

    SBC: Great Point Energy, Inc.            Topic: 10d

    79817 Although U.S. coal reserves are large enough to ensure energy security for the U.S. for several centuries, dependence on foreign natural gas and oil continues to grow because technologies for producing power with these fuels have an economic advantage over coal-based integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology. Yet, IGCC technology is a highly efficient and environmentally frie ...
