  1. Fast Switching Array for WDM-Photonic Time Delay

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative concept of a fast switching array for high bit-resolution photonic time delay that can be scalable to the ESA systems of MDA/Navy radars is proposed. The design is based on Electro-Optic (EO) effect incorporated with super miniature fiber collimation array, which is suitable to integrate in the current developing fiber based photonic WDM-true time delay technologies. The new EO switc ...

  2. Wideband photonics-based beamformer with multiple beams

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08027

    The multi-beam beamformer can benefit MDA’s radar sensor and communication. In this program, Agiltron proposes a photonics-based, multi-beam, low-loss beamformer. Agiltron’s variable fiber optic time delay lines will provide true time delay for the beamformer to form, steer, point and track the RF beams for ground-base, airborne or other RF systems. The proposed beamformer, leveraging on the r ...

  3. Growth of Large Area CZT Crystals

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA08013

    This proposal seeks to develop a new process for production of large area CdZnTe substrates for large area focal plane arrays. The proposed system promises to overcome innate scale-up obstacles in the current method for production of CdZnTe crystals.

  4. 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 who don’t know Ada typically convert the code to a language they understand, which is a tedious error-prone process. A conve ...

  5. Simulation Optimization Engine (SIMON) for Missile Defense

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA08036

    As evidenced by recent events, missile defense remains a crucial component for protecting the United States and her allies from potential long range threats. Modeling and simulation (M&S) is recognized by the Missile Defense Agency as a key enabling technology supporting Warfighters and analysts alike in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) design, testing, performance assessment, training, war ...

  6. Automated Quality Control for Thermal Battery Pellets

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA07023

    Thermal battery pellets must be manufactured to extremely tight weight and density tolerances. Currently, this production process is a rate-limiting step in thermal battery manufacture. Inspection of pellets is currently performed manually, slowing the

  7. Advances in Thermal Battery Anodes

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA08022

    Thermal batteries are mission critical components which provide power to military weapon systems for electronics, fusing, sensing and actuation. Current and future thermal battery packaging and performance requirements are being pushed to the limits, demanding higher power levels over longer operating times (hence, higher usable energy output) in smaller, lighter packages. These increases are req ...

  8. Improved Manufacturing Processes for Advanced Capacitors

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: MDA07025

    This Small Business Innovation Research project addresses improving manufacturing methods and performance of high-voltage capacitors. During Phase I, Giner, Inc. demonstrated novel and inexpensive methods for manufacturing and stacking of multiple cells

  9. Calibration techniques for very large arrays

    SBC: GMR RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: MDA08030

    GMR Research & Technology (GMR) proposes to develop real-time digital methods to compensate for analog distortions in large RF arrays. In particular we will address manifold distortions caused by geometry, electronic, and near-field distortions. In this phase of the SBIR effort we will develop this approach for X-band arrays of at least 16 by 16 elements with at least 500 MHz instantaneous bandwi ...

  10. Compact Laser Sources for Advanced Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: JGM ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: MDA08T004

    Phase I will conduct modeling and breadboard experiments to assess whether VHGM laser technology can achieve laser sources that enable active LADAR performance that surpasses present technology by a factor or 4, while packaging the laser head into a volume of 3 cubic inches. Phase II will build laser prototypes based on Phase I results.
