  1. Model Level Integrated Simulation Architecture for Collaborative Development

    SBC: Rtsync Corp.            Topic: MDA18012

    We propose to develop a simulation architecture framework that enables development teams to integrate algorithmic models into a simulation solely through a collaboration layer/interface and software controls. The proposed architecture will address: ease of model integration, model composability, execution speed, and ease of data collection and retrieval. To achieve these objectives, we propose tha ...

  2. BSM-KD: BMDS Simulation Mining for Knowledge Discovery

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA18011

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is currently producing hundreds of terabytes of simulation data per year and will soon be producing petabytes every year. A system is needed to ingest, host, and analyze both batch and streaming simulation data sources. These simulations could represent tests at a variety of locations, using a diverse set of hardware, and at a significant range of scales. Analysis ...

  3. A Fast Wavelength-Swept kHz-Linewidth Laser for Multi-kW Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: MDA18013

    AdValue Photonics proposes to develop a novel modulation technique for a narrow-linewidth seed laser for mitigation of optical nonlinearities in multi-kW high power fiber amplifier systems. The novel modulation technique allows us keeping as narrow as kHz-level operation of instantaneous laser linewidth in multi-kW high-power fiber amplifiers without the onset of detrimental SBS - stimulated Brill ...

  4. radGPU- Radiation Hardened GPU in a CubeSat

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA18015

    Traditional CPUs are falling short to meet high performance real-time processing needs of modern sensor technology (imaging, video, signals intelligence are critical needs for satellite image analysis and sensor control). There is a growing need to deploy GPUs along with modern sensors in the LEO and MEO (inner Van Allen Belt) and survive the radiation effects for 2-5 years. IAI’s solution will ...

  5. High Power Pump Signal Combiners for Next Generation Monolithic Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: MDA18016

    NP Photonics proposes to design and develop high power fiber combiners for kW-level fiber amplifiers. The advantages of the proposed fiber combiners include high power handling capability, extremely low loss for the signal laser, capability of bi-directional pumping, and high compatibility with conventional double-clad fibers and microstructured double-clad fibers. In this Phase I program, we will ...

  7. High Power Density Source for Space Applications

    SBC: Thermavant Technologies, L.L.C.            Topic: MDA18020

    The proposed Phase I effort aims to develop a small satellite energy storage solution that enables high power density Li-ion cells to be emplaced in compact payload or bus modules without the thermal management risks imposed by status quo battery packaging technologies. The key feature proposed herein is a “passive and thermally-intelligent” but mechanically sound package structure built with ...

  8. Ink-based 3D Electronics Printing for Missile System Applications

    SBC: 3DFlexible Inc            Topic: MDA18024

    Existing digital printed electronics systems are predominately based on 2D rigid printed circuit boards and manufacturing methods using nonintegrated tools and processes. Healthcare and communications industry, as well as Federal and DoD are pushing for smaller, flexible, and wearable electronic devices, and in particular 3D printed microelectronics that conform to complex shapes. Members of 3DFle ...

  10. Thermally Efficient Emitter Technology for Advanced Scene/Simulation Capability in Hardware in the Loop Testing

    SBC: ROBERT A. RICHWINE, LLC            Topic: MDA15014

    We introduce a concept and a design for a high-speed, high-temperature infrared scene projector for midwave (MWIR) and longwave infrared (LWIR) application. Results from study of carbon nanotube (CNT) material characteristics, along with field emission and electro-thermal modeling show that higheffective MWIR temperatures can be sustained and projected by a CNT pixel with little or no spillover to ...
