  1. Vis/IR Atmospheric Tool (VISIRAT)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16009

    Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Model and Simulation (M&S) capabilities include Core Truth models (CTM) capable of simulating all physics governing missile detection, tracking and intercept events. A key component of the simulation tools is an accurate and fast atmospheric radiation model to describe the target signals as they propagate through the atmosphere to the sensor. Ideally, such a model shou ...

  2. Database and Numerical Procedures for Extending the Spectral Range of Plume Signature Codes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16004

    Over many data collection campaigns, a large number of propulsion related signature events have been observed across an extended range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The current suite of plume modeling tools contains the basic framework for flowfield and signature generation, but lacks the underlying physical mechanisms and supporting property databases to properly account for alternate waveband ...

  3. Ground-Based Characterization of High Altitude Plume Signature Phenomenology to Advance the Capabilities of SOCRATES-P

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA16004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to utilize a ground-based simulation facility based upon its patented FAST technology to obtain critical data necessary to validate and extend the capabilities of the MDAs high altitude plume code, SOCRATES-P, to model plume signatures with high fidelity.In Phase I PSI demonstrated the model validation approach by measuring the velocity dependent cross section ...

  4. Prototyping of Transform-Domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: MDA16012

    QuNav proposes to validate and prototype a TRansform-domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction (TRIMAC). TRIMAC utilizes joint time/frequency domain processing of inertial sensor data in order to mitigate INS drift in the absence of external navaids (such as GPS). Frequency-domain implementation is particularly designed to improve the inertial performance in high-vibration missile enviro ...

  5. Radiation-defect mitigation in InAs/GaSb strained-layer superlattice infrared detectors

    SBC: Truventic LLC            Topic: MDA16011

    This Phase II SBIR project will advance the technical readiness level (TRL) of our Phase-I-demonstrated strategy for mitigating radiation damage in GaSb/InAs Type II Strained-Layer-Superlattice (SLS) long-wave infrared (LWIR) detectors.Our mitigation strategy will be optimized for detectors to be deployed in interceptor seeker systems that will be exposed to radiation in the near-Earth orbital env ...

  6. Multi-Functional, High Performance, IM-Compliant, Composite Case for Solid Rocket Motor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07047

    Physical Sciences Inc. has successfully demonstrated the operational capability of a filament wound composite case designed to mitigate against slow cook-off, fast cook-off, bullet and fragment impact threats for solid rocket motor (SRM) systems. The implemented manufacturing, quality control and assurance processes enable production of small and large diameter motors to satisfy strategic and tact ...

  7. Standardized Atmospheric Generator (SAG) for Inline Environment Generation

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16003

    We intend to dramatically improve the performance of the Standardized Atmosphere Generator (SAG), an environmental background model used to characterize the atmospheric state.SAG is an empirical model which creates a complete picture of the atmospheric state for electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) and radar (RF) systems as well as trajectory computations for targeting and tracking.These systems requi ...

  8. Fast Running Re-Entry Vehicle Wake Signature Tools

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16019

    The flight environment conditions encountered by re-entry vehicles (RVs) and RV associated spent boosters and flight hardware can produce complex wakes that are difficult to model.Under such high dynamic pressure and angle-of-attack (HDAOA) conditions, ablating heat shield material is entrained in the flow in the form of gases and particulates and reactive chemistry between atmospheric and ablatin ...

  9. Special Tooling and Processes for Repeatable Adhesive Application

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16014

    Threaded fastening systems in vibrating environments require a secondary locking feature, augmenting primary locking provided by an applied preload, to prevent vibration-induced loosening. The secondary locking feature can be mechanical, prevailing torque-type, or an adhesive. Self-locking nutplates and inserts are often more expensive than adhesives, require retorquing or on-torque adjustments, a ...

  10. Modeling Operator Reasoning and Performance for Human-in-Control Simulation (MORPHIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    As the United States makes strides in developing, testing, and deploying missile defense technology, the human element remains core to the integrated, layered ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) architecture. Human operators oversee the command and control at the system, component, and element level across a vast array of networked ground-, sea-, and space-based sensors and interceptors to eff ...
