  1. Thermal Protective Coatings for Interceptor Missiles

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA09007

    This SBIR project will address the combined effects of aerothermal heating, rain erosion, and moisture and gas diffusion on the degradation of interceptor missile radomes designed for hypersonic travel. A novel method of protecting hypersonic interceptor missiles from the rigors experienced at velocities several times the speed of sound is proposed. The technology is based on the conversion of a ...

  2. Creation of a Global UV-VIS-IR Ocean Background Model That is a Function of Time, Location and Sea State

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA09035

    The AEgis Technologies Group proposes to develop a robust modular ocean radiance model with FLITES as the primary focus for integration. The associated phenomenology of the ocean under various conditions has been identified for the implementation of first order principles. Other factors considered include runtime performance and flexibility to seamlessly interface with other computer codes for bo ...

  3. Constant Pressure Aerospike for Interceptor Axial Propulsion

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA09001

    Our proposed effort will be used to determine the feasibility of a deeply-throttleable aerospike engine that maintains constant specific impulse performance, regardless of the throttle setting. The design incorporates technology previously demonstrated under another SBIR, but extends it through incorporation of an aerospike nozzle.

  5. Innovative, High Performance, and Radiation Hardened Interceptor Software Defined Radio

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA08037

    Software defined radios (SDRs) provide a means to achieve enhanced capability, integrated into a cost-effective and growth-oriented architecture fully backward compatible with legacy BMDS elements. As demonstrated through the results of the Phase I SBIR program, implementing a SDR architecture is not without challenge due to the potential computing performance and radiation hardness limitations o ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Space Qualified, Fast Steering Mirror (SQ_FSM)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA08011

    Many steering mirrors have been developed over the years, but never has one been explicitly designed for high dose radiation environments or long-term space operations. As a result, deployed spaced based optical systems for line-of-sight stabilization or beam control have not benefited from the higher bandwidth control and better error rejection that can result from designs incorporating fast ste ...

  8. Extreme-SWAP IMU for Missiles and Interceptors: Rad-hard

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA09006

    XIMIR (Extreme-SWAP IMU for Missiles and Interceptors: Rad-hard), is a co-planar IMU development program that combines two navigation-grade inertial sensors being independently developed under separate funding with a novel packaging solution for shock, vibration and temperature immunity. Rad-hard ASICs for the inertial sensors are part of the 3-Phase effort, yeilding a compact IMU form factor of ...

  9. Novel Directed Energy Options in Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: MDA09T010

    High power microwave (HPM) sources have been developed over the past few decades for many important DoD missions ranging from electronic warfare to intentional EMI to impulse radar. In this proposal, we describe an integrated program that seeks to develop innovative solutions based on mesoband source and antenna technology to improve the effectiveness of HPM-based BMD systems. Our research will ...

  10. Multi Junction Solar cells for Satellite

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA09T005

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce mass, volume, and cost of DoD space missions. However, to achieve higher efficiency and radiation hardness of the best to date multi-junction photovoltaic (PV) devices, several challenges must be addressed. This project aims to develop: 1) Quantum Well (QW)-based multi-junction cell that exhibits enhanced efficiency, and 2) Radiation-hardened PV c ...
