The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Hypersonic Signatures

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T003

    The flight and environment conditions encountered by vehicles operating in the Mach 10 to 20+, or high hypersonic, regime are complex and difficult to model. Under such conditions, ablating heat shield material is entrained in the flow in the form of gases and particulates and reactive chemistry between atmospheric and ablating species creates a non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) environme ...

  2. Aerospace Vehicle Signature Modeling Technologies

    SBC: GoHypersonic Inc.            Topic: MDA15T003

    During hypersonic reentry, the flow around reentry vehicles is dominated by its high enthalpy and high temperature effects, which must be properly modeled in order to generate flowfields from which trustworthy vehicle signatures can be extracted. Ionization, plasmas, non-equilibrium chemistry and modeling of vibration energy, surface chemistry including ablation and associated surface recession, a ...

  3. Improved Techniques for Optimistic Modeling

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA11031

    Running a simulation on a parallel or distributed computing platform can decrease the execution time and improve real-time responsiveness. Optimistic Parallel Discrete Event Simulation (OPDES) model performance improvements derive from partitioning portions of the overall model to distributed computational nodes and executing them concurrently. Executing concurrently yet independently may cause so ...

  4. Rapid, High-Quality C/C Composites

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB171013

    Cornerstone Research Group (CRG) is reducing the variability and lead-time associated with production of carbon-carbon composites using MG Resins, a unique, high char yield material system as a replacement to typical phenolic and pitch precursors. In Phase I, CRG proved feasibility through characterization of C/C composites made with MG Resin, in which no densification steps were conducted. Very h ...

  5. High Performance MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit for Missile Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: MDA17015

    The proposed project aims to improve the SWaP-C of tactical-grade IMUs for use in the navigation system of guided weapons. Spectral Energies and its partners will achieve this goal by using advanced machine learning algorithms to reduce error in commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) MEMS IMUs.1. Immediate benefits to MDA: The proposed product would provide an IMU to the DOD with comparable precision and ...

  9. Dual-Band Datalink Antenna System for BMD Assets (1000-483)

    SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA13006

    SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to design and develop an improved dual-band datalink antenna suite for various BMD platforms. We will leverage our validated Phase II X-band datalink antenna design, as well as our initial S-band datalink antenna design to refine and optimize a form-factor dual-band antenna suite for the guidance section of various BMD platforms. The proposed antenna suite is ...

  10. 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 ...
