  1. Relational Pattern Analysis Tool for Legacy Conversion

    SBC: 2LRESEARCH            Topic: MDA07005

    This project develops a technology to automate the interpretation and understanding of complex trees of source code and related artifacts for conversion to run on newer hardware, operating systems and languages. The center of our proposed innovative approach is to map and parse a complex source code tree (plus related artifacts such as ‘makefiles’) into an appropriate process and object orien ...

  2. Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA07015

    The objective of this proposal is build an, all electronic, photonic band gap (PBG) scanning device using high performance electro-optic (EO) polymers for beam steering. The PBG device will take advantage of the superprism effect in PBG structures. PBG’s h have been shown to have an effective refraction several orders of magnitude greater than conventional materials. The beam will be steered by ...

  3. Advanced Hemispherical Reflectance Measurement of Heated Materials

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA07051

    High Energy Lasers offer defense against a variety of threats, delivering significant amounts of laser energy to a specific location on a target at the speed of light. The effectiveness of the HEL system is directly related to the ability to transfer heat into the target material. The laser must dwell on the target for a period of time sufficient to deliver enough thermal energy to render it inope ...

  4. Aerodynamic Drag and Lift Characteristics for Irregularly-Shaped Intercept Fragments

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA07016

    Analytical Services, Incorporated, teamed with Davidson Technologies, proposes a new approach to the characterization of drag and lift coefficient distributions for debris resulting from missile intercepts. The proposed approach utilizes both theoretical considerations and available measured data obtained from flight tests or other sources. This approach uses the measured data to obtain best estim ...

  5. Improvements to the BMDS Hit-to-Kill Lethality Predictive Toolset

    SBC: BFA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA07020

    The Ballistic Missile Defense Shield (BMDS) developed by the United States Government relies on layered defense designed to defeat incoming missiles in boost, mid-course, and terminal phases of flight. To maximize effectiveness of the shield, two types of intercepting missile concepts exist: hit-to-kill and blast fragmenting warheads. The first relies on the incepting missile’s kinetic energy ...

  6. Systems Approach to Liquid Hypergolic Propellant Shipboard and Air-Transport Safety of BMDS Elements

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: MDA07048

    The US Navy, through the Weapons Systems Explosive Safety Review Board (WSESRB), has never approved hypergolic liquid propellants for surface ship applications and the US Air Force has limitations on shipping LHP systems. For this proposed project, Streamline Automation will develop a modular and scalable suite of LHP Monitoring & Mitigation systems designed to allow safe air transport and sea-bas ...

  7. Aerodynamic Lift and Drag Characteristics of Irregularly Shaped Fragments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA07016

    An innovative aerodynamic database generation methodology is proposed for arbitrary fragment shapes. This will be achieved with automated CFD methods, using the framework of the Unified Flow Solver (UFS). The UFS features an Adaptive Mesh and Algorithm Refinement (AMAR) procedure for seemlessly coupling rarefied and continuum algorithms inside a simulation. The AMAR automatically creates Cartesia ...

  8. Accurate Insensitive Munitions Modeling Tool Coupling Detailed Chemical Kinetics and Physical Models

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA06041

    Understanding the response of solid rocket motors under cook-off conditions is important to the safety of the military’s weapon arsenal. In this SBIR, CFDRC, teamed with Merrill Beckstead of Brigham Young University (BYU) and ATK Launch Systems, proposes to develop a software toolkit for simulating the response of solid rocket motors (SRM) to fast cook-off events. The complete software package w ...

  9. Interceptor Algorithms

    SBC: DAVIDSON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA07012

    The evolution of advanced missile threats calls for interceptors with increased maneuver agility operating seamlessly in and between the boundaries of low endo-, high endo- and exo-atmospheric regimes and blurs the separation of interceptor fly-out and autonomous kill-vehicle end-game. In order to meet with increased target maneuver capabilities, the kill vehicle must supplement when possible its ...

  10. Advanced Signal Processing Technologies for BMDS Radars

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06031

    A critical component of the Ballistic Missile Defense System is the high power radar. These radars support the capability to identify, assess, and engage threats to the U.S., deployed forces, and allies. The current radar deployments utilize single-instance, symmetric multiprocessor machines. Both HP and SGI SMP processors have become or are becoming obsolete and the radars will require an upgr ...
