  1. Fast Self-Adaptive Algorithms for Generating Hardbody Thermal Histories

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: MDA10T003

    To reduce the cost of new hardware development, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is developing fast new computational tools that enable in-the-loop hardware testing. The MDA and contractors have developed high-fidelity scene modeling tools such as the Fast Line-of-sight Imagery for Target and Exhaust-plume Signatures (FLITES) to test optical signature trackers. Currently, these high-speed tools ar ...

  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. 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) ...

  4. Multifunctional Applique for Spacecrafts

    SBC: Sensortex            Topic: MDA05T019

    This program will develop an appliqu"¦ based on a multi-layer film which will be conductive as well as possessing good optical properties (low ¦A, high ¦Å). The film will be designed to be highly resistant to the space environment. This white, conductive appliqu"¦ will be easily applied to most external areas of the spacecraft. The appliqu"¦ is expected to have multiple layers, each indiv ...

  5. Advanced Simulator for Neutron Induced Single Event Effects (SEE) in Electronics

    SBC: TECHSOURCE, INC.            Topic: MDA05T001

    We propose to study the development of a dedicated neutron source for Single Event Effects (SEE)to be collocated and intregrated with an existing neutron source (LENS)at the Indiana University Cyclotron Facility (IUCF). The study will maximize use of existing facilities to maximize the cost/benefit for the SEE neutron source.
