  2. Innovative Methodologies for Manufacturing of Lethality Test Articles

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: MDA17T001

    The experimental validation of the DoDs weapon systems is at the cornerstone of national security considerations. The structural requirements for the targets utilized impose a severe cost and lead time burden due to the limitations imposed by the traditional manufacturing processes currently used. Novel manufacturing methods for metal alloys have been established in the past years, but they have y ...

  4. CONTEXTUAL REASONING FOR OBJECT IDENTIFICATION

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA15T001

    This project will develop a statistical-relational framework and enabling technologies for context-aware object classification and selection. The proposed framework is capable of reasoning about the scene as a whole while incorporating the entire corpus of available information including features and classification labels from heterogeneous sensors and properties of other objects in the scene. The ...

  5. High Speed Missile to Missile Communications

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: MDA17001

    Indiana Microelectronics is proposing an alternative design for a high-speed missile to missile radio frequency communications link. The concept is to implement a reconfigurable, full duplex, software defined Ku band transceiver to allow for faster data throughput and better interference mitigation than existing downlinks. The system would be designed to operate at a higher frequency than the exis ...

  6. Resource Utilization Prediction and Planning for Complex Simulations

    SBC: SimVentions, Inc.            Topic: MDA17002

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) utilizes federated Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) simulations to characterize and predict the performance of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS).Computer and network resource loading is a key challenge MDA faces in planning and running these simulations. Scenario planners are forced to create lower resolution scenarios, which fall short of BMDS fidelity test o ...

  8. Green Propellant Rocket Engine

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: MDA17010

    Standard monopropellants like hydrazine are highly toxic and carcinogenic.These characteristics add significant cost, complexity, and risk during the fueling of spacecraft.Green propellants alleviate most of these concerns.They are far less toxic, ultra-stable, and shock resistant; thereby offering the satellite designer a much safer alternative.MDA17-010 seeks to develop a green-propellant-fueled ...
