  1. Innovative Ways to Streamline Scenario Generation Across a System of Systems M&S Enterprise

    SBC: 1ST EDGE LLC            Topic: MDA16006

    The strategic planning and creation of test scenarios for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) All Digital System Level Simulations and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) test events is a time-consuming challenge. As proven in Phase I, requirements-based scenario design will significantly benefit from rigor in the specification and control of common data sets. In addition, capturing the knowledge of subject ...

  2. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The Missile Defense Agency seek solid propellant, propulsion control systems with longer operation times, increased performance, and reduced size, weight, power, and cost.Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F.Proportionally controlled actuators that are capable of enduring higher temperatures while aiming to maintain performance and/or reduce SWaP-C will improve the robustness o ...

  3. Fast IMU Autonomous Alignment, Gyroscope and Accelerometer Measurement Improvement by Input Reconstruction

    SBC: Aero Thermo Technology, Inc            Topic: MDA16012

    Accuracies of initial alignment and gyroscopic drift in the presence of fast maneuvers and the settling time of gyroscopes and accelerometers govern navigation performances of Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) and of their associated Inertial Navigation (sub) Systems (INS). Most measuring devices include some electromechanical device, which has a time lag. In the case of IMU, the integration of mea ...

  4. Modeling of the Attenuation Effects of the Ionosphere and Troposphere for Radio Frequency Application

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA16008

    Current environment models employed in MDA simulations are, in general, not coordinated to present a globally consistent environment picture and can be based on functions that have not been updated to take advantage of the environment models and databases that have become freely available in the information age. In contrast, radar atmospheric effects models whose behavior is derived from globally ...

  5. State-Vector Density Functional Method for Kill Assessment

    SBC: FreEnt Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA16001

    Measuring and characterizing the post-intercept states of a missile intercept event is critical for determination of interceptor effectiveness. System sensors including radar imaging infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV), and visible wavelength sensors have been used to characterize these events. FreEnt has developed an innovative approach to post-intercept assessment based on mathematical formalisms su ...

  6. Thermophysical Property Characterization of Decomposing Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Integration Innovation, Inc.            Topic: MDA16021

    Under Phase-I of MDA SBIR 16.3-021, i3 demonstrated a new time-efficient technique, the i3 Transient Decomposition Method (TDM), for generating statistically-based material response models that predict the decomposition process that thermal protection system materials undergo when exposed to severe aerothermal heating environments. The i3 TDM is an enabling technology for MDA and other agencies th ...

  7. Test Article Printing with Laser Additive Manufacturing (TAP-LAM) for Threat Surrogate Target Production

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: MDA17T001

    Optonicus proposes development of the TAP-LAM (Test Article Printing with Laser Additive Manufacturing for Threat Surrogate Target Production) powder bed fusion and directed energy depositions systems. The TAP-LAM metal additive manufacturing system will advance strategic missile defense system testing capabilities by improving 3D printing methods to rapidly produce large-scale threat surrogate ta ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Materials for High Strain Rate Applications

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: MDA17T001

    Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) is an attractive technology for the production of lethality test articles due to the potential for significantly reduced lead time and manufacturing cost.However, in order to be effective in providing accurate lethality data, the properties of the AM material have to match closely the properties of conventionally manufactured alloys found in real threat targets ...

  9. Lightweight Magnesium Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Terves Inc.            Topic: MDA17T004

    Magnesium alloys have 35% lower density compared to aluminum, with improved temperature stability compared to high strength aluminum.They can also be fabricated with minimum gauge thicknesses considerably thinner than fiber composites, and are weldable, with much higher impact resistance.Traditional magnesium alloys, however, have had lower strengths than more developed aluminum alloys.Powder meta ...

  10. Proactive Risk Monitoring Using Predictive Analytics

    SBC: UNIVERSAL TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: MDA16T002

    Presently the missile defense systems are using a reactive and program-centric framework for assessing industrial base risk. The Phase I effort focused on developing a wide and deep network algorithm using Industrial Product-Support Vendor (IPV) Gen II program for predicting the probability of failure. The proposed Phase II effort leverages the Phase I work and will focus on three main goals:(1) I ...
