  1. Multi Junction Solar cells for Satellite

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA09T005

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce mass, volume, and cost of DoD space missions. However, to achieve higher efficiency and radiation hardness of the best to date multi-junction photovoltaic (PV) devices, several challenges must be addressed. This project aims to develop: 1) Quantum Well (QW)-based multi-junction cell that exhibits enhanced efficiency, and 2) Radiation-hardened PV c ...

  2. An Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic with Improved Fracture Toughness and Oxidation Resistance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA09T002

    Hypersonic missile defense systems are being designed to reach global threats. During flight, external surfaces are predicted to reach temperatures in excess of 2200C. As a result, innovative, high performance thermal protection systems (TPS) are of great demand. Among ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC), it is well known that ZrB2- and HfB2-based materials have high melting temperatures and ...

  7. Human Performance Modeling Mark-up Language (HMP-ML)

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA12T006

    The modeling and simulation of human performance is often difficult because there is no uniform framework for expressing the content and structure of a human performance model and all but impossible to compare and contrast across different models despite the abundance of quantitative modeling tools. The inability to communicate model structure and content is not just a practical shortcoming; it is ...

  8. Secure Virtual Environment for Cyber Resiliency Validation

    SBC: Gray Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T004

    The most direct way to meet the technical objectives for the Secure Virtual Environment (SVE) for Cyber Resiliency Validation would be to replicate the missile defense system’s tactical hardware, software, and network. However, this is cost prohibitive due to the amount of hardware procurement required for the Cyber test environment. Luckily, with the exception of supply chain threats, firmware, ...

  9. ECCCHO: Effective Combat Casualty Care Handoff Operations

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: DHA17B002

    Approximately 70% of sentinel events in medical care are related to communication mishaps, and despite regular and frequent occurrence, an even higher percentage (80%) of severe medical errors are related to miscommunication during handoffs (i.e., the transferring of information, responsibility, and authority for patient care from one provider to another). The TiER1 team proposes to address challe ...
