  1. Fast Thermal Calculations for Responsive Targets in Support of Real-Time Scene Generation

    SBC: MODERN TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA10T003

    In order to provide the required simulation frame rates we propose to decouple the incident flux calculations from a simple thermal response model. We propose to develop a table-lookup methodology based on high fidelity precomputed environmental and eventually aerothermal fluxes which can be draw in real time to drive the thermal response model. A simple 1-D thermal calculation based on an analyt ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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) ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
