  1. Conformal Multilayered Passivation for Type-II indium arsenide/gallium antimonide Superlattice Mesas

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA14021

    The unique electronic properties of periodically-arranged indium arsenide/gallium antimonide (InAs/GaSb) mesas in the type-II strained layer superlattices (SLS) make them a superior alternative to the conventional HgCdTe sensors for longwave infrared focal plane array (LWIR FPA) detectors. However, despite the highly promising quantum structures of SLS, its performance is currently limited by high ...

  2. Lightweight Hybrid Ablator/Aerogel Insulator for SM-3 TSRM, Phase II

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: MDA14002

    Advanced lightweight ablative materials are needed to provide additional performance gains for next-generation ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) interceptors. The interceptor third stage, in particular, will benefit substantially from a reduction in inert weight, which enables increased missile stack velocity. Operational targets for the interceptor third-stage rocket motor (TSRM), and for o ...

  3. Filament Wound Resin Transfer Molded Composite Pressure Vessel

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA05024

    San Diego Composites (SDC) is developing a toroidal composite overwrap pressure vessel (COPV) for use on next generation propulsion systems. A development effort sought to optimize the electron beam welding process parameters to reduce weld integrity sensitivity to poor fit up conditions when butt-welding the thin titanium liners integral to these composite overwrapped tanks. Results from this dev ...

  4. Decision Algorithm for PIA

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA16001

    The MDA system receives information from multiple sensors in the system architecture that may observe an intercept event. The proposal addresses the type of information that sensors should provide and a decision scheme that combines potentially conflicting information, arriving asynchronously, with different level of confidence. The system has a short time to decide whether reengage the target f ...

  5. System-level Post Intercept Assessment

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA16001

    When targeting an enemy threat, it is very important to know how effective the intercept was so as to make decisions on how to proceed. Pre-intercept information may be subject to uncertainty or accuracy considerations, meaning that a pre-intercept effectiveness assessment should be refined by post-intercept sensor data. Toyon Research Corporation and Modern Technology Solutions, Inc. (MTSI) propo ...

  6. Standardized Atmosphere 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 combines multiple empirical models, including NRL-MSISE-00, URAP, NRL climatology, AFGL atmospheric profiles, SNOE databases, the International Reference Ionosphere, and photochemical and empirical models developed by S ...

  7. Synthetic Inline Generation of Modeled Atmosphere


    To address the MDAs need for an innovative, low-cost process to perform inline environment generation for real-time hardware-in-the-loop testing and constructive digital simulations, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Synthetic Inline Generation of Modeled Atmosphere (SIGMA) system based on deep modeling and GPU acceleration. The innovation in using multi-layer stacked dee ...

  8. 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 ...

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

    SBC: MixZon, 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. Far-field plume signatures arise from the hyperthermal interaction of rocket plume effluent with the atmosphere at altitudes greater than 100 km. In P ...

  10. Cyber Health and Status Data Collection

    SBC: REAL-TIME INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA16005

    We propose to develop an extensible, distributed, highly scalable, real-time, comprehensive and contextually relevant common operating picture for modeling and simulation system Cyber Situational Awareness (CyberSA) building upon widely successful open source and open standards technologies. Our system will continuously, automatically, and securely collect selected data (e.g. node and network dat ...
