  1. One-Size-Fits-All Hardened Electronic Design and Test Platform

    SBC: QUICKFLEX INC.            Topic: MDA03049

    Space and military system designers have a significant and growing problem migrating from system solutions using radiation-hardened components to commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and "rad-hard by design" (RHBD) components. Current testing solutions are either custom built "one-off" solutions, expensive, and/or not easily portable. QuickFlex is extending prior successful work for NASA to create the ...

  2. Electronic Warfare Environment Simulator System (EWESS)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: A00043

    SPEC proposes to develop and deliver a flight capable Target Hologram Generator (THG)--a programmable flight module that forms radar hologram target countermeasure signatures of hard objects in flight--to MDA's Target and Countermeasures (T&C) program. For example, a single unit is capable of creating multiple ECM/ECCM scenarios, different emitters - separated by frequency, phase, time, and other ...

  3. Image Processing Algorithms for Target Discrimination

    SBC: EUTECUS, INC.            Topic: MDA03010

    MDA seeks for an efficient target tracking and discrimination system beyond the current state of the art. The primary motivation of the work proposed is to offer a topographic microprocessor architecture for multi-target discrimination and tracking with embedded sensors capable of operating in a process real-time manner. Phase I effort has shown that the performance of multi-target tracking (MTT) ...

  4. Multi-Color Quantum Cascade Mid-IR Sources at 2.5 to 5 um


    A compact mid-IR dual wavelength laser is highly' desirable for the environmental gas and pollutant sensing, such as differential absorption lidar, where the light scattering has to be evaluated and compared at two different wavelengths. In the phase-Iproject, we have demonstrated the first two-color type-II interband-cascade (IC) laser in the world. It shows two lasing wavelengths at 4.482 and 4. ...

  5. Integrated Data Compression and Security Algorithms

    SBC: Asier Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA02040

    In Phase I of this SBIR, Asier conducted research to determine if telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted. Asier determined that two different types of MDA telemetry data could be compressed and encrypted in real-time (no added latency) and without damaging either the integrity or synchronicity of the data stream. Telemetry files from the payload launch vehicle (PLV) and orbital/sub-orb ...

  6. Optical Gain Modulators and Switches Using Toggling (BMDO02-011B)

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    We will develop and demonstrate Geiger mode APDs using novel materials set, device structure, and circuit for short wavelength (500 - 600 nm) ladar pixels and pixel arrays. Our approach promises extremely low dark count rates at room temperature (1 cps).This quietness allows trade-offs among larger detector area, less cooling (or no cooling), reduced after-pulsing, reduced optical cross talk, high ...

  7. A Novel Approach to Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Fabrication to Significantly Increase Power Density and Specific Power

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: MDA03100

    For Phase II, Lynntech proposes to implement the adhesively bonded stack technology developed in Phase I in a full-size, closed-loop, regenerative fuel cell energy storage system (ESS). The ESS will be capable of delivering 34 kW of peak power and will demonstrate a roundtrip efficiency of up to 60%! The ESS will include the use of efficient balance-of-plant components, and components necessary fo ...

  8. Chirality Sensor using an Electro-Optic-Polymer Circular-Polarization Modulator

    SBC: RADIANT RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional optical waveguide modulators failed to provide modulated output of circularly polarized light. In this program, Radiant Research, Inc. (RRI) proposes a miniaturized circular-polarization modulator (CPM) that operates at arbitrary modulationrates up to 100 GHz and at various optical wavelengths from 700 to 1600 nm. Specifically, the CPM will take the output of a laser diode and produce ...

  9. Multifunctional Structures for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: MDA03030

    Interceptor programs are in high gear and the need for advancing technologies to be applied to these programs are at an all-time high. Payload mass fractions are a driving force in the design process of these Kill Vehicles (KVs). Programs such as the Ground-Based Interceptor and Space-Based Interceptor are in need of ways to reduce the weight and volume of electronic system components, while at ...

  10. A Novel Panoramic Optical Sensor for Missile Seeker

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Genex Technology, Inc (GENEX) has successfully completed a six-month Phase 1 SBIR effort to develop 360-degree panoramic infrared (IR) optical sensor technologies for the missile seekers. This program is sponsored by Ballistic Missile Defense Organization(BMDO) and managed by U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD China Lake). The wide angle viewing capability is useful as augmen ...
