The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future MDA space missions will utilize small spacecraft with correspondingly small, advanced sensor systems.Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease detector noise and increase detector sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature.The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enable ...

  2. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...

  3. Radiation Hardened SLS FPAs For Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA16011

    QmagiQ, LLC proposes to partner with The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Inc. to experimentally study radiation effects on antimony-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes that have shown remarkable performance improvements in recent years. QmagiQ's SLS infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) are already designed to be radiation-hard to some degree. In Phase I, we will measure how rad-ha ...

  4. Advanced Reserve Battery Technologies

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA15021

    There is an ever-growing need for increased battery performance in weight-sensitive and volume-constrained applications. Also needed is the ability to develop batteries with non-standard form factors to accommodate tight size constraints. Erigo and our collaborators at EaglePicher Technologies propose to develop a thermal battery by leveraging advances in cathode formulations, fabrication techni ...

  6. E3 Mitigation for Interceptor Thermal Protection Systems

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15020

    Mentis Sciences and San Diego Composites have developed composite materials that reduce system weight and sustain more aero-thermally stressing environments. This technology has been validated in rain erosion tests, has undergone preliminary aerothermal evaluation, and is currently undergoing characterization to develop B-Basis material allowables. This will be accomplished by designing and demons ...

  8. Advanced Synergistic Structures and Materials for Interceptor Kill Vehicles

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10015

    "Mentis proposes to leverage the advantages of its high-temperature, low-density quartz/polysiloxane composite materials and develop fiber architectures that reduce interlaminar shear stresses. These developments would improve aerothermal longevity and performance and also utilize automated fiber placement methods that increase the affordability of nosecone materials. Mentis proposes to design a c ...

  10. High Performance Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) Focal Plane Array (FPA) Sensor for Missile Defense

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA14021

    We propose to bandgap-engineer the antimony-based Group III-V compound semiconductor material system to realize a dualband focal plane array (FPA) made up of stacked multi-barrier Type-II strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes. Two longwave infrared (LWIR) spectral bands will be imaged in alternate frames by using a readout multiplexer that flips the voltage bias across the FPA from frame ...
