  2. High-Strength Carbide-Based Fibrous Monolith Materials for Solid Rocket Nozzles

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: MDA04T024

    Over the past 10 to 15 years, there has been a move towards the integration of ¡§advanced¡¨ materials with improved performance in hostile propulsion environments. Tantalum carbide is stable to very high temperatures (~3900„aC) under non-oxidizing conditions, but is relatively soft and erodes appreciably with aluminized propellants. In an effort to improve the strength and erosion resista ...

  4. Components For High Power, Low-Noise, Wide Bandwidth RF Amplifiers

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: MDA04138

    This proposed work is for the design of an innovative broadband circuit for high-power multiple beam klystrons. A key technical objective is to develop an output cavity with high interaction impedance to ensure high power and high efficiency circuit operation at reasonable beam voltages. A buncher circuit design to effect a uniform bunching current across the band will also be developed to take ad ...

  5. Warm Shield Sensor Design

    SBC: Breault Research Organization, Inc.            Topic: MDA04112

    Many Ballistic Missile Defense sensors use infrared wavelengths to detect the heat generated by target missiles. These sensors must capture infrared emission from a missile, image that missile onto a detector with the requisite resolution, and control the amount of unwanted light or stray light striking the detector. Limiting stray light from internal and external sources is often as important as ...

  6. Very Lightweight High Tenacity Fabric for High Altitude Airships

    SBC: CUBEN FIBER CORP.            Topic: MDA04160

    Abstract: Cuben Fiber Corp. proposes to develop and test very lightweight high tenacity fabrics for HAAs and prepare related manufacturing protocols. The fabrics should meet the following design goals: Tensile strength: 1000 lbs/in at a weight of 3.5 oz/yd2 with minimal creep and capable of carrying Tensile Loads of 800 lbs/in without failing due to creep rupture. Additionally the material sh ...

  10. Approach to Enhancing Target Discrimination via 3D Visualization without 3D Glasses

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA05T008

    There are many factors that render automatic target recognition challenging. These include cluttered background, adverse weather and acquisition conditions, spatially closed targets, spectrally-matched decoys, and the limits on sensor resolution etc. One solution is to have a 3D display, which will help discriminate the targets. However, a major challenge in rectifying the sensor streams, i.e. to ...
