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. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07037

    The mitigation of mainlobe jamming is essential to missile defense radar performance. Applied Radar is currently investigating distributed aperture and adaptive processing architectures that promise a new generation of advanced radar performance. Our proposed program will research the application of these distributed aperture radar techniques to determine the mainlobe jammer suppression possible w ...

  2. Advanced Phased-Array Module Interconnect Technology

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07036

    The design and development of phased-array radars requires the integration of solid-state components and adequate thermal mitigation within the array lattice constraints. The current trend is towards increasingly planar designs and a reduction in the array depth. The MDA SPEAR program is one example in which a planar T/R “tile” architecture is utilized. System-on-a-chip technologies such as Si ...

  3. IM Modeling/Simulation Tool for KEI Dynamic/Thermal Loads Associated with Stage Separation

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA06041

    Intense dynamic and thermal loads will occur during stage-separation events that are of major concern from both operational and safety viewpoints. The insensitive-munitions (IM) stimuli and thermal/dynamic response associated with such events has received very little attention, yet this is of major concern for the KEI vehicle undergoing Stage 1 to Stage 2 separation. The KEI event is at lower alti ...

  4. Maneuvering Target Phenomenology

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: MDA07021

    Propulsion systems may perform a variety of maneuvers during the ascent phase of flight that can impact the performance of an interceptor or other parts of an MDA system designed to perform threat detection, discrimination, and tracking. Our Phase I effort focuses on building on extending existing plume signature software. A main technical objective is to establish the various components and app ...

  5. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this project is to develop a novel expander that can increase the efficiency of cryocoolers for IR sensors at very low temperatures and in remote cooling and across gimbal applications. Miniature Thermoacoustic Expanders (MTAE) that employ high energy acoustic waves generated with no moving parts at the cold expander to produce efficient cooling over a wide range of temperatures a ...

  6. Optimal Sensor Scheduling for Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA06009

    Our Phase I research involved the development of an innovative sensor scheduling algorithm in support of Ballistic Missile Defense. This algorithm schedules multiple diverse and distributed sensors to perform time-critical tasks relating to multiple moving targets; specifically, to detect, classify, localize, track, support the interception of, and conduct BDA for ballistic missiles throughout t ...

  7. Track Correlation / Sensor Netting

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA07046

    The project objective is to develop a tracking algorithm that will fuse detections and tracks provided by a network of radar sensors with detections and tracks provided by a network of electro-optical (EO) sensors into multi-system tracks. The intent is to thereby achieve increased state estimation and classification accuracy in tracking ballistic missiles. Both target kinematic states and featur ...

  8. Production Enhancements for Integrated Anti-Tamper Technologies

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: MDA07028

    The primary objective of this Phase I program will be to demonstrate a greatly improved manufacturing and production techniques for die packaging of anti-tamper capabilities. We aim to show through manufacture engineering research, software development and hardware prototypes, a new low-cost technique for multi-threat capable Anti-Tamper (AT) device manufacture and AT software-based multi-threat ...

  9. Passive Cooling of Laser Diodes for Use on Satellites

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA07007

    A novel concept integrating, k-Core® (a material system which consists of encapsulated annealed pyrolytic graphite) saddle with a loop heat pipe evaporator is proposed. Due to five fold increase compared to the baseline aluminum, the proposed concept can enable much higher heat flux levels at lesser resistance to the radiator. In addition, the proposed concept will not have any weight penalty co ...

  10. Lightweight Composite Thermal Protection System

    SBC: KION defense Technologies Inc            Topic: MDA07022

    As the technical capabilities of our adversaries improve, it becomes necessary to improve our Ballistic Missile Defense systems capability. Of particular interest are improvements in Thermal Protection Systems and aerostructures for missile interceptors. Greater aerothermal heating and higher stresses require that the outer structure survive higher heat loads and/or dissipate the heat to protect ...
