  1. Development of a Radiation Hardened Multi-Color LWIR and VLWIR Focal Plane Array Technology

    SBC: AVYD DEVICES, INC.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Our Phase I proposal addresses the demonstration of the feasibility to develop a radiation hardened technology for dual band HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays which would include the LWIR/VLWIR wave bands of 7-14 micrometers and 14-18 micrometers. In Phase II, we plan to implement the approach to demonstrate VLWIR dual color detectors and Read Out ICs culminating in the demonstration of focal plane array ...

  2. Missile Plume Simulation Improvements Using GPU Chemical Kinetics Coprocessors

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA05T018

    High-fidelity missile plume flowfield simulations of MDA interest require use of detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms, which significantly improve IR/UV/RCS/visible signature prediction but entail long solution runtimes for completion. These long runtimes result from the required iterative solution of large systems of stiff, non-linear chemical source terms at each CFD mesh point; this curtails t ...

  3. Insensitive Munitions Technology

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T006

    It is proposed to qualitatively and quantitatively investigate the `Bonfire' insensitive munition (IM) characteristics of solid rocket motors. The study will focus upon developing fundamental understanding of the transient heat transfer, heat flux and the overall thermal load to and through the motor case's various multi-layered materials at elevated temperatures up to solid propellant bondline ig ...

  4. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: Innoflight, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T005

    Innoflight, Inc. in conjunction with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California, will investigate and analyze a low-cost nanosat bus to simulate a Ballistic Missile Defense Systems (BDMS) target by combining their experience designing and building affordable, high-performance small spacecraft. The DoD-sponsored NPS brings past and present experience with the PANSAT and NPSAT1 spac ...

  5. Computer Network Defense Technologies

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: MDA05T010

    Irvine Sensors Corporation (ISC) together with North Carolina State University propose to develop a novel methodology using advance hardware stacking techniques to detect, mitigate, and track insider threats. Information gathered using this new methodology allows for tracking of insider threats across multiple system architectures that use Variable Message Formats (VMF) into a reconfigurable dev ...

  6. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: L'GARDE INC.            Topic: MDA05T005

    We are proposing to support the development of a daily, on-orbit, calibration test opportunity for BMDS assets. Our proposed system would include a conical vehicle, about 2 m long, and a spherical vehicle about 1 m in diameter. Phase 1 concentrates on the radar signature of such targets, and develops methods to tailor these signatures so that, in the future, IR and/or visible signatures could be ...

  7. PROPULSION MATERIALS MODELING TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AND REDUCE COST

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA05T002

    MDA is developing materials for several applications including hypersonic missiles, ma-neuvering reentry vehicles, advanced solid rocket motors, and divert and attitude control sys-tems. All of these applications employ components that must operate at temperatures above 3000°F. Viable structural materials for these conditions can be loosely grouped as graphite, ce-ramics (e.g. oxides, carbides) ...

  8. Integrated Flight Control Systems for Kinetic Kill Vehicles with Novel Internal Actuators

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA04T003

    New internal actuation technologies and integrated design of guidance-control systems for kinetic kill vehicles are proposed. These actuation technologies can be used for KKV trajectory and attitude control in any speed range, both within and outside the atmosphere. Since the actuators are contained entirely within the airframe geometric envelope, and because no mass expulsion is involved, they of ...

  9. Li Ion Base Battery Model

    SBC: Quallion LLC            Topic: MDA05T014

    A base model will be developed for both lithium-ion cells and a battery of cells. All the important thermodynamic and transport phenomena occurring in an individual cell will be accurately characterized. In Phase I, we will determine the appropriate mathematical equations for the base cell model, determine accurate values for all the thermodynamic and transport parameters, and develop an efficient ...

  10. Techniques For Radiation Hardening Including Electro-Optic Subsystems.

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA05T009

    San Diego Composites (SDC) and the University of Delaware's Center for Composite Materials (UDCCM) have identified an opportunity to develop and demonstrate innovative techniques to fabricate integrally radiation hardened composite electronic housings for MDA interceptor electronics enclosures. The goal of this project is to develop materials and manufacturing methods for composite electronic enc ...
