  1. 3D Printed Component Packages for Semiconductor Die

    SBC: Edwards, Carl            Topic: MDA17011

    3D printing has existed for decades within certain manufacturing industries where many legal regimes, including patents, industrial design rights, copyright, and trademark may apply. However, 3D printing of electronic packages and components is more recent area of development. Paraphrasing the topic, this work willdevelop a 3D printing process concept that additively prints a 3D package around a b ...

  2. 3D Printed Microscale Radiation Shield

    SBC: NEXGENSEMI CORPORATION            Topic: MDA17012

    Over the past 30 years, additive manufacturing has evolved from printing layers of 3D bonded plastic coated paper to create 3D rapid prototyping objects maturing to sophisticated rapid manufacturing that can directly sinter 3D metal parts using high power, high speed lasers, known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering.Current Radiation Hardened (RH) shields are made with high density and hardness materi ...

  3. 3D Printed Microscale Radiation Shield for Microelectronics

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA17012

    The purpose of this proposal is to develop an additive manufacturing process capable of printing radiation blocking material around a microelectronic component. The goal of the radiation shield is to mitigate single event effects from a linear energy transfer (LET) > 20 [MeV-cm2]/mg particle and reduce radiation dose rate by 25%. During Phase I, Triton Systems proposes to prove the feasibility of ...

  4. 3D Printed Microscale Radiation Shielding

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA17012

    State-of-the-art COTS microelectronics are often found to be susceptible to radiation and systems are required to be redesigned with a new electronic piece-part or multiple kilogram metal shielding.These modifications increase weight, size, costs, and schedule to the program. Space Micro will design radiation shields based on our modeling/simulation tools and thenleverage existing commercially ava ...

  5. A Low-Cost Hybrid Ultrasonic-Radio Frequency (RF) Sensor System for Characterization of Composite Materials

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), is developing a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-radio frequency (RF) sensor (HURFS) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) system to assess most structural issues while simultaneously providing feedback on the layer thickness and RF properties of composite, non-conductive materials in multi-layer stacks. The HURFS approach combines the u ...

  6. A Novel Orthogonal Chaos-Based Radar Waveform with Optimized Receiver Filtering

    SBC: POC TECH GROUP LLC            Topic: MDA12002

    To achieve the goal of finding radar signal waveforms for supporting target information and deducing sensor-independent attributes, we propose to use a novel chaos-based orthogonal radar signal waveform with matched-filter-like (or adaptive) pulse compression processing for improving target detection. An open-source-and open-architecture prototype platform is proposed to enable performance analys ...

  7. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Missile defense takes place in an uncertain and dynamic environment, so multi-sensor fusion must be employed to aggregate and merge disparate data from the battlefield. However, the fusion process is hindered by the vast amount of uncertainty in operational contexts, such as imprecise measurements and varying environmental conditions. Various algorithms and fusion processes have been developed to ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing for Affordable Missile Defense

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: MDA16013

    The efforts will leverage advanced multi-scale material modeling, multi-physics additive manufacturing (AM) simulation technologies to suggest optimized AM process and build parameters before printing in an attempt to deliver quality Direct Metal Laser Sinteringparts.Components/materials fabricated will meet MDA/Raytheon specifications. The qualification of each component will be shown by DOE, and ...

  9. Advanced High End Gyroscopes for Small Form Factor Inertial Measurement Unit Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: MDA18005

    In this program, Freedom Photonics will develop a novel, miniature gyroscope that meets the requirements of the MDA. This gyroscope will be based on our prior work and demonstration of the gyroscope with similar performance, but larger footprint.Approved for Public Release | 18-MDA-9710 (6 Jul 18)

  10. Advanced High Performance, High Energy Density, Ionic Liquid Propellants for Insensitive Munition Compliant Exo-Atmospheric Interceptors

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: MDA18004

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to design, develop and demonstrate a novel insensitive munition compliant, high performance, green storable liquid propellant for advanced exo-atmospheric interceptors. This new propellant formulation can be treated as a monopropellant or as a bipropellant system with predicted specific impulse and density specific impulses exceeding AF-M315E, LMP-103S, and the dens ...
