  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Experimental Demonstration of an Improved Cryocooler Configuration to Lower the Gimbaled Mass and Volume for Infrared Sensors


    The objective of this effort is to reduce the weight of the cryocooler system, improve the efficiency of the cryocooler system, provide multiple cryocooler temperatures, and improve the configuration of the gimbaled flexible joint. At first glance, this set of claims seems incredibly ambitious; however, as disclosed in this proposal, these achievements can be obtained by implementing an improved ...

  7. Actively Stabilized MEMS IMU for Autonomous Guidance and Navigation

    SBC: Milli Sensor Systems and Actuators, Inc.            Topic: MDA07010

    Without the means for stabilizing the scale factor and bias of MEMS gyroscopes and accelerometers, they cannot become precise and accurate instruments. With stabilization, however, autonomous navigation is possible and GPS reliability can be improved. We propose to introduce active stabilization methods and test devices and carry out the proof-of-concept tests during Phase I. We will make use of e ...

  8. Furazan Ingredient as a Solution for Slow Cook-Off Insensitive Munitions Tests

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07047

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its team member Aerojet, propose to mitigate slow cook-off violence by adding a thermally-decomposing trigger to a propellant formulation to provide a benign ignition mechanism for large diameter SRMs. Physical Sciences and Aerojet have identified a potential furazan replacement for ammonium nitrate (AN) which eliminates the significant problems of AN such as hygro ...

  9. Multi-Functional High Performance IM-Compliant Composite Case for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07047

    It is proposed to develop a multifunctional IM compliant, filament wound composite case for slow cookoff, bullet and fragment impact. In phase I, the proposed investigation will focus upon developing our composite case, conducting slow cookoff tests, and to filament wind one case design to a subscale analog MDA rocket motor. We propose to establish a fabrication technique that will be applicable a ...

  10. Genetic Algorithm Allocation and Assignment Tool for Missile Defense Battle Management

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA07045

    An increasing number of countries are acquiring nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons together with missile systems that enable them to deliver these weapons beyond their borders. Short response times require effective, efficient planning tools for resource and weapons allocation, assignment, and placement so that these tasks can be executed effectively in a highly stressed environment with ma ...
