  1. Forecasting IR Satellite Imagery for Adaptive Sensor Tasking

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA07033

    Accurate forecasts of infrared satellite imagery are needed to optimize tasking of valuable and limited space borne surveillance assets. Atmospheric constituents such as clouds, aerosols, and water vapor can negatively impact the ability of IR surveillance systems to monitor activities on the ground. Due to their chaotic nature, atmospheric impacts are particularly severe for applications that r ...

  2. Nano-Enabled Broadband Infrared Anti-Reflection Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07001

    In this program, Agiltron and the group of Professor D. W. Wang at Boston College propose a novel nano-porous coating for next generation MDA IR anti-reflection (AR) coatings for detectors and optics. The collaborative research leverages recent progress in nano-material development at Boston College, and Agiltron’s recently developed nano-coating processes. The proposed IR AR coatings will posse ...

  3. High Performance Resonator Fiber Optic Gyro Made of Air Core Fiber

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07052

    Agiltron proposes an innovative resonant fiber optic gyro (RFOG) based on air-core optical fiber achieving high performance, compact size, lightweight and low fabrication cost. The proposed gyro uniquely combines the advantages of high finesse of a ring laser gyro (RLG) and the advantages of long optical path and miniature package of interferometer fiber optic gyro (IFOG). Critically, the utilizat ...

  4. Near-IR Enhanced CMOS Sensor for LADAR Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA07032

    Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), in collaboration with Harvard University and Raytheon, proposes to develop a silicon-based focal plane array with single-photon responsivity at 1064-nm, with the goal of creating next-generation LADAR receivers. This Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed idea by improving the near-infrared (NIR) single photon efficiency of RMD’ ...

  5. LANguage Conversion Engine (LANCE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07005

    From 1987-1997, DoD required Ada for every software project where new code generation was more than 30% of the effort. With the decline in Ada’s popularity, it has become increasingly difficult to find skilled Ada developers to maintain this legacy code. Code maintainers that don’t know Ada typically convert the code to a language they understand and this is a tedious error-prone process. What ...

  6. Optimized Planning for Threat Interception using Markets for Uncertainty Management (OPTIMUM)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07045

    Emerging threats and technologies have significantly increased the requirements for successful battle management and fire control in ballistic missile defense applications. The growing interdependencies between weapons and sensor systems demand defensive planning tools that integrate weapon allocation with sensor management, and problems such as inventory management and weapon-to-target assignment ...

  7. Automated Quality Control for Thermal Battery Pellets

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA07023

    The overall objective of this program is to develop methodologies for: automatic removal of the pellets from the press, precise measurement of the pellets (weight, thickness), calculation of density, inspection of pellets for chips and cracks, and segregation of non-compliant pellets. Automation of the above processes will ultimately lead to increased throughput with reduced cycle times. Phase ...

  8. Improved Manufacturing Processes for Advanced Capacitors

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: MDA07025

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses improving manufacturing methods and performance of an all-solid high energy/power density high-voltage capacitor packaged in a low-cost, bipolar multi-cell configuration. These devices can be used in a wide range of portable electronic systems especially in demanding industrial, defense and aerospace applications. The Phase I progra ...

  9. High Sample-Rate Ultra-Wideband Track-and-Hold Demultiplexer (2007047)

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: MDA07003

    Hittite proposes to develop a Radiation-Tolerant Ultra-Wideband Track-and-Hold (T/H) Demultiplexer to address MDA’s future needs for microwave signal sampling/data conversion. This development is motivated by the difficulties in achieving high-speed interleaved analog-to-digital converter (ADC) assemblies with good accuracy. A switched-emitter-follower T/H amplifier in the SiGe BiCMOS process ...

  10. Device Level Thermal Management Solutions for Phased Array Rada

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: MDA07034

    It is the intent of Hittite through this proposal to explore the feasibility of using chemical vapor deposition (CVD)-diamond as a passivating layer within the junction of a Gallium Nitride (GaN) microwave transistor. CVD-diamond being a material with very high thermal conductivity, and being located as close as possible to the heat dissipation source, will have the effect of reducing junction tem ...
