  1. Wideband Digital Beamforming for SPEAR

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA05034

    In the proposed Phase II effort, Applied Radar, Inc. will develop a wideband scaleable digital beamforming (DBF) processor capable of supporting > 1 GHz of instantaneous bandwidth (IBW). The new patented hardware architecture paradigm developed in Phase I is scaleable in the number of input channels, the number of output beams, and bandwidth. Hence, it is directly applicable to large BMD radars su ...

  2. Conformal Appliqué Antennas for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: WANG ELECTRO-OPTO CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM06002

    This SBIR phase-II proposal is to develop conformal appliqué antennas mounted on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and aircraft for FM/TV broadcast in PSYOPS (psychological-operations). The technical problem is very challenging, especially for that on UAVs, because of the constraints on antenna size and form factor by the platform, and since the gain-bandwidth of an antenna is fundamentally limited ...

  3. Coherent Distributed Aperture Enabled Active Electronically Steered Array (CDA-AESA)

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07T011

    Our missile defense capability crucially depends on radar performance to detect, track and discriminate hostile targets. New radar designs being developed offer enhanced capability. However, a significant impediment to the deployment of these new radars is the high cost of active electronically scanned arrays (AESAs) and in particular the antennas upon which they are based. Together with our inter ...

  4. Small Scale Cryogenic Refrigeration Technology

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, Inc. and the Georgia Institute of Technology propose an STTR program for the investigation and modeling of meso scale Pulse Tube cryocooler systems (with initial design targets of 0.5 mW exergetic cold end thermal loads and cryocooler volumes of approximately 10 ml), with the possible extension of models further into the micro scale. CFD-based models will be deve ...

  5. Low Cost Planar Antennas for Phased Array Radars

    SBC: WANG ELECTRO-OPTO CORPORATION            Topic: MDA07T011

    Under STTR Topic MDA07-T011, "Low Cost Planar Antennas for Phased Array Radars," Wang Electro-Opto Corporation (WEO) proposes to develop a low-cost planar array element antenna for integration into a beamsteering array panel. The planar array antenna should operate over the entire X-band for MDA's specific radar application, and achieve a 50% reduction in life-cycle costs from current arrays. The ...

  6. Next Generation Simulation Infrastructure for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: GTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA06003

    Grid and web-based technologies offer new capabilities with respect to resource allocation and integration for advanced distributed simulations. Realization of these benefits requires exploitation of these techniques in the context of defense industry standards such as the High Level Architecture. This project proposes the development of advanced distributed simulation infrastructure software th ...

  7. A Hierarchical Data Fusion Architecture for Missile Detection and Identification

    SBC: GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY CONNECTION, INC.            Topic: MDA06010

    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with Center for Multisource Information Fusion (CMIF) at SUNY (Buffalo) and Boeing Net-Centric Operations, proposes the development of data fusion architecture based on a hybrid analytical / intelligent methodology that exploits the concept of “focus of attention” via active perception in order to optimize missile classification accuracy whi ...

  8. Efficient Adaptive Beamforming for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA06033

    The detection and classification of reentry vehicles in the presence of jammers and clutter is a very important missile defense radar problem. High resolution, wideband adaptive beamforming (ADBF) is an important solution component in which both the transmit and receive beamforming weight vectors are dynamically updated to optimize performance in a time varying jammer and clutter environment. An i ...

  9. Development of Digital Receiver/Exciters for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA06032

    This proposal will address the development of digital receivers and exciters capable of supporting > 1 GHz of instantaneous bandwidth (IBW). The technology will be used in large scalable BMD radar arrays employing a digital waveform generator and digital receiver at the analog input/output of each subarray panel. The receivers/exciters include the necessary up/downconversion and local oscillator c ...

  10. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this program is to demonstrate and miniaturize a new type of cryogenic expander, thermoacoustic expander (TAE), for space cryocoolers which provide the cooling power less than 50 mW and operate in the low temperature range between 40K and 10K for cooling SWIR, MWIR, and LWIR surveillance and interceptor systems. TAEs employ high energy acoustic waves generated with absolutely no m ...
