  1. Smaller, More Powerful, and Longer-Lasting Thermal Batteries

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA15021

    There is an ever-growing need for increased battery performance in weight-sensitive and volume-constrained applications.In particular, MDA weapons systems need reserve batteries with greater power and energy density to support new mission profiles.Also needed is the ability to develop batteries with non-standard form factors to fit in systems with tight size constraints.Erigo and our collaborators ...

  2. Advanced Synergistic Structures and Materials for Interceptor Kill Vehicles

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10015

    "Mentis proposes to leverage the advantages of its high-temperature, low-density quartz/polysiloxane composite materials and develop fiber architectures that reduce interlaminar shear stresses. These developments would improve aerothermal longevity and performance and also utilize automated fiber placement methods that increase the affordability of nosecone materials. Mentis proposes to design a c ...

  3. E3 Mitigation for Interceptor Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15020

    Mentis Sciences and San Diego Composites have developed composite materials that reduce system weight and sustain more aero-thermally stressing environments. This technology has been validated in rain erosion tests, has undergone preliminary aerothermal evaluation, and is currently undergoing characterization to develop B-Basis material allowables. This will be accomplished by designing and demons ...

  4. Structural Reactive Polymeric Materials

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: MDA15004

    Missiles produced with reactive materials can add chemical energy to the kinetic energy generated on impact with a target. Thus, reactive materials have potential to serve as structural components resulting in possible increase lethality without a weight impact. In Phase I, Tetramer will demonstrate a new material system with significantly stronger mechanical properties and excellent reactive prop ...

  5. Thermal Isolation of Nozzle Exit Cone Insulators

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA12027

    Mentis and SDC are developing materials suitable for operating in extreme environments, such as those experienced by exit nozzles in Throttleable Divert and Attitude Control Systems (TDCAS), or as thermal protection in ballistic missiles and payload delivery systems. A material characterization effort is required to establish accurate material properties at storage and operational conditions. Ap ...

  6. Contamination-Free, Lightweight, Helium-Rubidium Vapor Circulation System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12018

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) require a uniform, steady, flowing mixture of helium and rubidium vapor at elevated pressure and temperature. Significant challenges exist because rubidium is a very reactive material. In response, our team is developing a contamination-free, all-metal, hermetic, circulation system based on gas-bearing turbomachines. Specific benefits include low mass, ...

  7. Rain Erosion Modeling for Hypersonic Thermal Protection System (TPS) and Structures

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05021

    Mentis Sciences (Mentis) is providing Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) line to produce a Radome Assembly (RA). Mentis focus is to assure all elements of the production process approaches a Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) 8. This effort requires developing processes and Design of Experiments (DOE) for controlling each element of production to assure quality and cost goals for meeting LRIP. ...

  8. High Energy Laser (HEL) Analysis Tool with Experimentally Corroborated Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser (DPAL) Rate Coefficients

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Proper design of Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The resulting product will be a user-friendly, high-fi ...

  9. Advanced Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Strained Layer Superlattice Detectors on Digital-Pixel Readout Integrated Circuits

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA12T003

    We propose to combine QmagiQ's strained layer superlattice (SLS) sensor technology with MIT Lincoln Laboratory's novel digital pixel readout integrated circuit (DROIC) to realize an advanced longwave infrared digital focal plane array (DFPA) with high quantum efficiency, dynamic range, and operating temperature. In Phase I, we developed the basic SLS DFPA and demonstrated its extraordina ...

  10. Low-Cost Integrated Valve/Injectors for Bipropellant Thrusters

    SBC: BLAINE WRIGHT, INC.            Topic: MDA05067

    The most significant hardware costs on a missile interceptor propulsion system are associated with the thrusters, for which there are typically four divert thrusters and four, six, or eight attitude control thrusters per interceptor. The largest contributor to the thruster cost is the integrated valve/injector. Integration of the valve and injector into a single body provides the benefits of low d ...
