  1. Low Cost Planar Antennas for Phased Array Radars


    This STTR program, Topic MDA07-T011, aims at developing an array radiator for low-cost X-band planar phased array antenna with over 50% reduction in LCC (life-cycle cost), which currently is prohibitively high. The phased array must be planar, wideband, and compatible with the fabrication process of low-power T/R modules. In Phase-I, Wang Electro-Opto Corporation (WEO), Ohio State University, and ...

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


    The objective of this project is to develop a novel expander that can increase the efficiency of cryocoolers for IR sensors at very low temperatures and in remote cooling and across gimbal applications. Miniature Thermoacoustic Expanders (MTAE) that employ high energy acoustic waves generated with no moving parts at the cold expander to produce efficient cooling over a wide range of temperatures a ...

  3. Small Scale Cryogenic Refrigeration Technology

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA06023

    Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, in collaboration with Raytheon Company and Georgia Tech, proposes a Phase II SBIR program for the development and prototyping of a small-scale compressor with design specifications intended for use with prospective small-scale cryocooler systems. This compressor will based upon a moving-magnet concept down-selected at the end of the Phase I program. The Phase II ...

  5. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07037

    The mitigation of mainlobe jamming is essential to missile defense radar performance. Applied Radar is currently investigating distributed aperture and adaptive processing architectures that promise a new generation of advanced radar performance. Our proposed program will research the application of these distributed aperture radar techniques to determine the mainlobe jammer suppression possible w ...

  6. Advanced Phased-Array Module Interconnect Technology

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07036

    The design and development of phased-array radars requires the integration of solid-state components and adequate thermal mitigation within the array lattice constraints. The current trend is towards increasingly planar designs and a reduction in the array depth. The MDA SPEAR program is one example in which a planar T/R “tile” architecture is utilized. System-on-a-chip technologies such as Si ...

  7. Adaptive Methods for Target Tracking, and Guidance and Control for the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense System


    Ballistic missiles pose formidable challenges for target tracking and intercept because of their spiraling dynamics and significant maneuverability potential as they re-enter the atmosphere at high speeds. Recent studies have shown that conventional methods to estimation, guidance and control design are unable to guarantee sufficient accuracy against such highly maneuvering targets. This is not un ...

  8. Atmospheric Effects Mitigation for Improved Boost Phase Track Correlation Sensor Fusion


    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to develop multi-spectral track correlation algorithms to improve boost phase track radar-to-radar and optical-to-radar track correlation for multiple sensor fusion. These algorithms will enable enhanced effectiveness in track correlation subroutines and enable effective sensor fusion, thereby increasing the coverage area of BMD space-based op ...

  9. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...
