  1. 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 ...

  2. Smart Infrared Focal Plane Arrays and Advanced Electronics

    SBC: INFRARED LABORATORIES INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA10010

    The objective of this proposal is to use the proprietary knowledge of Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC) unit cell and architecture design from Infrared Laboratories, Inc. (IRL) and Valley Oak Semiconductors, LLC (VOS, a wholly owned subsidiary of IRL), to develop and demonstrate a smart ROIC for advanced infrared sensors that can be operated robustly in a ballistic missile defense environment. In ...

  3. Anti-Tamper Technologies for Missile Defense

    SBC: Envieta LLC            Topic: MDA10017

    Based on a new construct, this approach employs repeated application of an existing block cipher in a random sequence to significantly decrease the SNR available to power line attacks and increase the number of recorded events necessary to conduct DPA attacks. The objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of a randomized block cipher architecture and it's ability to reduce side-channel info ...

  4. Photonics TDU for Radar True Time Delay (TTD)

    SBC: Morton Photonics Incorporated            Topic: MDA10027

    In this SBIR program, Morton Photonics will develop a practical phased array radar time delay unit (TDU), incorporating photonic devices for the key functions fabricated in a silicon CMOS compatible process (silicon photonics) to provide for significant scaling of cost with module volume in order to meet the aggressive cost goals of the solicitation. The TDU design will include an optical true-tim ...

  5. Advanced Rad Hard ADC for Satellite Applications

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP, INC.            Topic: MDA10032

    Ridgetop Group will develop a novel, ultra high-resolution, radiation-hardened analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and digital-to-analog converter (DAC) for applications in servo control systems in satellites. The key performance attributes, including integral calibration circuitry, resolution of 18 bits, sampling rate of 2 MS/s and power consumption below 100 mW, will be achieved using a successi ...

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

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA08028

    Next-generation ground-based BMD radar is anticipated to employ a scalable architecture with multiple low-cost transportable arrays employing hundreds of thousands of elements per array. Low-cost analog array panels are to be employed in the array, and wi

  7. Wideband Sub-Array Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX)

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA08028

    Next-generation ground-based BMD radar is anticipated to employ a scalable architecture with multiple low-cost transportable arrays employing hundreds of thousands of elements per array. Low-cost analog array panels are to be employed in the array, and will typically contain a digital receiver/exciter (DREX) behind a subarray group of typically 64 or 256 elements. The combination of element-level ...

  8. CRYOGENICALLY COOLED CONTROLLED SWITCH FOR SPACE POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID STATE SWITCH FOR OPERATION AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL PROVIDE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER CONDITIONING IN THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING FIELD OF LOW TEMPERATURE ELECTRONICS. SINCE EXISTING CONTROLLED SWITCHES ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUITABLE FOR CRYOGENIC OPERATION, ONLY A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH CAN DEVELOP STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF LOW LOSS AND RELIABLE OPERATION IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE B ...

  9. CDTE OPTICAL COMPONENTS IN LONG WAVELENGTH INFRARED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Xacton Corp            Topic: N/A

    INFRARED SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED FOR A VARIETY OF DEFENSE RELATED APPLICATIONS, SUCH AS: SURVEILLANCE, TARGET DETECTION, ACQUISITION AND TRACKING, MISSILE GUIDANCE, ETC. FOR MANY APPLICATIONS SUCH AS THOSE INVOLVING COLD-DIM TARGETS, THESE SYSTEMS NEED TO OPERATE IN THE VERY LONG WAVELENGTH REGION OF THE INFRARED SPECTRUM, E.G. 15-35 MICRONS CUTOFF. IN THIS WAVELENGTH REGION, THE AVAILABILITY OF SUITAB ...
