  1. A Development of Ceramic YAG Fibers for High Power Laser Applications

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA09036

    In this Phase I work, UES will advance its current patented technology towards a novel ceramic process to produce high quality polycrystalline YAG fibers that meet the required properties for high power fiber laser applications. We show that YAG is far superior to silica as a material choice for fiber lasers, using a computational evaluation. UES has, over the past 5 years, developed a patented te ...

  2. Advanced Architecture and Process Techniques for High-Density, Radiation-Hardened Non-Volatile Memory

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA08023

    For mission critical data storage on systems operating in natural space and nuclear weapons environments, the use of radiation hardened (RH) non-volatile memory (NVM) is imperative. Today's complex computer controlled electronic systems use NVM to store critical data for proper operation. This typically includes configuration parameters which allow the system to return to a known configuration a ...

  4. Advanced Materials & Processing Technology for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: AMERICAN TECHNICAL COATINGS, INC.            Topic: MDA09007

    The objective of the proposed work is to validate the concept of an injection moldable in-situ reinforced barium alumino silicate (IRBAS) missile radome using a Hotblox pre-ceramic siloxane binder system. In Phase I, ATC will optimize formulation, mixing and molding process development. ATC will work with Lockheed Martin to develop sintering processes and to characterize the material. At the e ...

  5. Advanced Monopropellant Microchannel DACS

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA09003

    Future high maneuverability Divert Altitude and Control Systems (DACS) require improved performance and reduced environmental impacts, while maximizing kill vehicle divert capabilities and reducing weight within restricted geometries. Advanced “green” monopropellants promise significant improvements over current hydrazine propellants, because of lower toxicity, higher chemical stability, and i ...

  6. An Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic with Improved Fracture Toughness and Oxidation Resistance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA09T002

    Hypersonic missile defense systems are being designed to reach global threats. During flight, external surfaces are predicted to reach temperatures in excess of 2200C. As a result, innovative, high performance thermal protection systems (TPS) are of great demand. Among ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC), it is well known that ZrB2- and HfB2-based materials have high melting temperatures and ...

  7. Antitamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA09009

    LIT proposes the development of Phantom Sensor technology to prevent exploitation of US Weapons Systems and to protect Critical Program Information by characterizing the configuration of a CCA and for determining if the CCA has been tampered with or altered. Phantom Sensor CCA characterization extends the operational effectiveness of the system and protects system components by verifying appropri ...

  8. AT Power Solutions Capacitive Fabric

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA08041

    The MDA Director issued a directive necessitating the protection of Critical Program Information (CPI) from unintentional transfer and the policy for the implementation of anti-tamper (AT) technology on MDA acquisition and associated technology programs. AT technology consists of engineering activities that prevent and/or delay exploitation of critical technologies in U.S. weapons systems. The pur ...

  9. Ballistic Missile Defense Anti-Tamper Penalty and Response Capabilities

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: MDA08043

    Tamper-resistant systems play a key role in preventing and/or delaying the exploitation of critical technologies in U.S. weapons systems. The main focus of this effort is to identify methods for responding to tamper events and to develop innovative response techniques to protect CPI from exploitation, reverse engineering, and compromise. This proposal’s solution is applicable to a wide range of ...

  10. Bipolar Lead Acid Batteries Using Polymer/carbon Composite Bipolar

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    WORKERS AT BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY, BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES, HAVE DEVELOPED A MATERIAL FOR USE AS A BIPOLAR ELECTRODE SUPPORT WHICH WILL RESULT IN MORE LIGHTWEIGHT, LONGER LIFE BATTERIES. THE ELECTRODE SUPPORT IS A COMPOSITE MATERIAL COMPOSED OF LOW SURFACE AREA CARBON/POLYMER COMPOSITE MATERIAL WHICH HAS LOW ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE, CHEMICALLY STABLE, AND HAS LOW ACTIVITY FOR OXYGEN EVOLUTION, AN UND ...
