  1. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity nor having direct contact with the propellant. In Phase II, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging pr ...

  3. Deep Inference and Fusion Framework Utilizing Supporting Evidence (DIFFUSE)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...

  4. Composite Case Improvement for Solid Rocket Motor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA06T004

    It is proposed to develop, model, and demonstrate composite case materials with sympathetic responses to slow cookoff. In phase II, the proposed study will focus upon conducting subscale SCO testing on composite case materials and validate a physics based modeling and simulation tool. Subscale motor case dimensions will be analogue to a specific MDA rocket booster.

  5. Advanced IC Design Techniques for the Prevention of Reverse Engineering of the Programmed Functionality in FPGAs

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: MDA06T008

    Military and space-application FPGAs are invaluable for improving defense capabilities and deployment schedules; however, they also create a potential vulnerability if their configuration code can be discerned or if they can be directly used in unauthorized systems. Modern IC debug and repair techniques, such as PICA and FIB, represent formidable attack tools, which when combined with other attac ...

  7. Miniaturized Thermoacoustic Cryocooler for Missile Defense Applications(1001-088)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    The U.S. military envisions a range of cryocooler systems that can enable specific operational requirements. For missile defense applications, Triton is targeting cooling of infrared focal plane arrays (FPA) in optics which address surveillance, missile threat warning systems and missile seeker systems in general. Triton Systems Inc proposes to develop thermal management solutions for space elec ...
