  1. Dual S&C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA11T004

    IAI proposes the design of a Waveform Agile Telemetry Transmitter (WATT) which will support simultaneous dual-band S-C band operation (S-band , 2200-2400 MHz and C-band selectable between 4400-4950 MHz and 5091- 5250 MHz), to achieve the goals of this solicitation. Our proposed WATT architecture will employ state of the art, highly integrated, wideband Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMI ...

  2. A Novel and Locally Adaptive Approach to Correlating Multiple IR Sensors Using Partial Frames

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: MDA11004

    Correlating multiple IR sensors is challenging because IR images may have different sizes, different poses, different illuminations, and different translations. Moreover, the IR images may not be perfectly aligned even after image registration. We propose a novel and high performance system for correlating multiple IR sensors using partial frames. First, for one partial frame containing a region o ...

  3. Smart Infrared Focal Plane Arrays and Advanced Electronics

    SBC: INFRARED LABORATORIES INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11005

    The SBIR MDA11-005 posted a well depth requirement of up to 50 Million electrons for a pixel pitch of 12um~20um to achieve the targeted high dynamic range, low noise and high resolution imaging goal. Initial calculations, given a commercial 0.18um/3.3V process, and using the entire pixel area at the maximum pixel pitch (20um), yields 24 Million electron well capacity when all the pixel area are ta ...

  4. Develop and Demonstrate High Performance Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Advanced Quantum Structures

    SBC: Zipton Labs            Topic: MDA11019

    In contrast to conventional type-I multiple quantum wells or superlattices (SL), the interband optical transition in type-II superlattices (T2SL) is spatially indirect. Therefore, its effective bandgap can be narrower than that of any of the single constituent materials. In general, there are two categories of type-II alignments for heterostructures, broken-gap alignment and staggered alignment (s ...

  5. Advanced Power Storage Systems for Interceptors

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA11024

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a high-energy and high-power hybrid system consisting of a lithium ion (Li-ion) battery in conjunction with an ultracapacitor (UCAP) for advanced power storage systems for interceptors. Yardney Technical Products (YTP), the world leader in cutting-edge Li-ion battery technology proposes to design, develop and test new improved materials for several cell ...

  6. Star Background Model enabled by the VAO

    SBC: Carr Astronautics            Topic: MDA11032

    The most up-to-date measurements of astronomical sources are accessible through the Virtual Astronomical Observatory (VAO), which is constantly fed by ongoing modern sky surveys while also having access to older static catalogs. We propose to produce a software package that will leverage the ever expanding and improving data accessible through the VAO to aid in cataloging and classifying astronomi ...

  7. Optical Sensor Suite for Anchoring Debris Models

    SBC: CONTROL VISION INC            Topic: MDA11042

    The Missile Defense Agency is seeking debris ejection data during the post burn-out period of a solid rocket motor in an exoatmospheric environment for the development and verification of analytic models. Currently little is understood of the debris ejection during this phase of the solid rocket burn. Control Vision, Inc. proposes utilizing its current imaging and measurement technologies to gai ...

  8. 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 distributed aperture techniques for mitigating mainlobe jammers which are ready for evaluation in an operational system context. To accomplish this ...

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

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA08028

    Applied Radar, Inc. is developing the Single Channel Open Source Architecture (SCORE) digital receiver/exciter (DREX) card which represents a revolutionary step leap in SWAP-C reduction. The SCORE card is a 3U OpenVPX card which incorporates a single channel of waveform generation, RF Upconversion, RF Downconversion, and waveform capture and processing. Importantly, the design is scalable, and des ...

  10. 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 ...
