  1. Improved Performance, More Producible Long Wave IR Integrated Dewar Assemblies

    SBC: WILLIAM P. KUHN, PH.D., LLC            Topic: MDA08019

    A design for a long-wave IR integrated dewar assembly that includes a lens in place of a window, and the associated, deterministic alignment processes, fixtures and instrumentation will be developed. Including a lens, instead of a window, in a dewar provides additional optical design freedom that makes it possible to reduce the length and weight of a sensor optical system. Size and weight are cr ...

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

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA06032

    This proposal will address the development of a digital receiver and exciter (DREX) technology for next-generation scalable missile-defense radar. A DREX is currently being specified at the sub-array level to feed an analog tile or panel subarray. This al

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

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T011

    Missile threats faced by our country are constantly increasing in lethality. The weapon used to counter such missiles is the kinetic interceptor. To work effectively, the reentry vehicle (RV) location must be precisely known. Confusing objects within the reentry complex make the key discrimination process very difficult. Coherent distributed aperture (CDA) radar represents an important advance in ...

  5. Advanced Multi-Layer Phased-Array Interconnect Technology

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07036

    The design and development of scalable panel-based phased-array radars requires the high density integration of solid-state components and adequate thermal mitigation within the array lattice constraints. The current integration technologies such as system-on-a-chip (SOC), multi-chip-module-deposition (MCM-D), and system-on-package (SOP), will help miniaturizing sub-modules for various functional ...

  6. Wideband Sub-Array Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX) Development and Packaging

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA08028

    This proposal will address the development of a wideband digital receiver and exciter (DREX) technology for next-generation scalable missile-defense radar. A DREX is currently being specified at the sub-array level to feed an analog tile or panel subarray in order to generate flexible waveforms and beams with improved performance. The technical challenge is to meet the required receiver sensitivit ...

  7. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07037

    Current monostatic radar systems suffer fine tracking and discrimination performance degradation when encountering mainlobe jammers deployed within a reentry complex. As a result our forces may be vulnerable to attack. During Phase I, we have developed di

  9. VLWIR HgCdTe FPA Reliability and Yield Enhancement through Nanostructural Analysis

    SBC: FABMETRIX, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA08013

    This Phase I proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of characterizing the depletion region of a VLWIR HgCdTe photodiode in plan-view and in nano-scale to detect and study the structural anomalies responsible for the current leakage and other operability issues. Our related preliminary work on a test photodiode has already identified crystalline defects and secondary phase precipitates with ...

  10. HIMAP: A Hierarchical Integrated Battle Management and Planning Aid Framework

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA07045

    Nowadays missile threats, specifically coordinated attacks involving multiple missiles, have become increasingly challenging. It is hard to fast and effectively allocate the rich and varied U.S. defense capabilities to negate the aforementioned missile threats. There is a need for an integrated system for battle managers, fire control and operators to effectively manage the U.S. missile defense ca ...
