  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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.

  4. 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 ...

  5. Radar Debris Algorithms and Models for Discrimination

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07T004

    We are proposing an innovative approach to sensor fusion and target recognition based on transductive inference with support vector machines. Our proposed algorithm will apply innovative discrimination to the fusion of sensor (feature) and contextual scenario information through the development of robust algorithms and software necessary to collect, process, and fuse information from multiple sour ...

  6. Data Driven Prognostics (Hybrid Nano-scale/Microscale Composites for Deep Thermal Cycle Damage Resistance)

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03T001

    Programs such as Airborne Laser and Space-Based Laser require highly mass efficient structures. Because of their high specific strength and stiffness this naturally leads to graphite fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) materials for many system components. In fluid storage tank applications GFRP laminates often develop microcracking when subject to cryogenic temperatures and/or stresses due to press ...

  7. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA03T004

    The team of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Ohio State University (OSU) proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel electrically generated singlet oxygen to atomic iodine laser. In Phase I we developed and demonstrated a novel discharge method for production of singlet molecular oxygen and completed a design for a supersonic transfer laser. In Phase II we propose to extend this work to develop ...

  10. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    The terahertz wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum offers exciting and unique attributes for security imaging and secure broadband communications. However, THz signal generation is difficult and current applications are rare. Existing THz sources utilize large and expensive lasers operating in pulsed mode. Practical application of THz radiation requires the development of THz source techn ...
