  1. Fast Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA10T003

    The AEgis Technologies Group proposes to develop an innovative real-time thermal solver solution to model hardbody thermal histories. This thermal solver solution will consider the relevant phenomenology associated with MDA targets and other associated objects requiring thermal histories. Modeling of complex objects and advanced features such as model ablation and dynamic surface areas will be co ...

  2. An Accurate 3D Real-Time Simulation Tool for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA10T003

    Existing thermal analysis tools for optical signature generation are employed in an off-line manner, and are inadequate for new closed-loop real-time system simulations being pursued by MDA. This STTR project aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative simulation tool for the automatic generation and subsequent computation of reduced thermal models for accurate, real-time analysis of complex 3D ...

  3. Physics Based Modeling Tools for Next-Generation Lithium Ion Battery Performance and Lifetime

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA10T004

    The MDA is developing satellite based systems that could benefit from ongoing developments in advanced materials for lithium ion batteries. Unfortunately, the driving applications for much of the new materials research have less abusive operational cycles than the frequent cycling, and sporadic pulse loads to deep discharge, of MDA satellite applications. Physics based models of battery performa ...

  4. MBE CdTe on Compliant Substrates for High Performance IRFPAs

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays are based on HgCdTe grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The use of Si-based substrates would eliminate a number of drawbacks related to the HgCdTe/CdZnTe system and permit larger formats. We have developed growth protocols that produce material with good crystal quality for such a highly mismatched heteroepitaxial system. Double crystal rocking c ...

  5. Defect Passivation for High Performance HgCdTe on Si

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA11T002

    Hydrogen isotopes have been shown to reduce the electrical effects of various semiconductor defects. Specifically, monoatomic hydrogen and deuterium passivate the electrical activity of defects such as dislocations in long-wavelength HgCdTe grown on Si. We propose a novel method of controlling the intake of hydrogen in HgCdTe IRFPAs by using the H2/He plasma afterglow formed by flowing plasma-gene ...

  6. Defect Reductions on Si Substrates for HgCdTe MBE Growth

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: MDA11T002

    Current state-of-the-art infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) are based on HgCdTe material epitaxially grown on bulk CdZnTe substrates. The size of the IRFPAs is limited by the size of the available CdZnTe substrates and the thermal mismatch between CdZnTe and the Si readout circuit, which misaligns the photodiode array with respect to the circuit during heating and cooling cycles. Having HgCdTe ...

  7. Deployed First Responder Course of Action (COA) Evaluation and After Action Review (AAR) Tools

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: OSD10H07

    Many geospatial technologies and modeling techniques exist, especially for 3-D visualization of correlated layers of data. A gap remains in integrating the unstructured world of voice, chat, and free-form text communications to the more structured world

  8. Medical Gaming

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: OSD10H08

    Throughout history, the ability of a fighting force to respond to battlefield casualties, perform triage, and evacuate their wounded to a treatment facility has been crucial to the long-term success of the force. Until now, the ability of medical personn

  9. Synthetic Tissue Trainer- Development of Realistic Tissue Elements for Surgical Task Training for Mangement of Combat Injuries

    SBC: Sim Vivo            Topic: OSD10H09

    The main outcome of this proposal will be the development of a new generation of task training manikins that will provide a realistic training platform for the instruction of invasive trauma resuscitation procedures (ITRP) such as peripheral IV insertion,

  10. Sensor Fusion Dynamic Scenario Descriptor

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA10001

    Radiance proposes to design, implement and test multi-sensor (RF/IR/Vis) multi-platform data fusion algorithms, advancing the state of the art in Rao-Blackwellised Particle Filter (RBPF) algorithms in a dynamic Bayesian network framework. Our innovations provide a multi-sensor (RF/IR/Vis), multi-geometry picture of threat scenarios for C2BMC"s requirement for a single integrated picture of the bat ...
