  1. High Strength Amorphous Metal Alloy for Penetrator Noses and Cases

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA111003

    Kinetic penetrators are currently made of depleted alloys of uranium or tungsten, which are both toxic heavy metals that are harmful to human health and the environment. Amorphous metals have the high strength, fracture toughness and surface erosion resistance needed to replace uranium and tungsten without sacrificing performance. Recent research on amorphous metals has developed bulk metallic gla ...

  2. Ion Beam Sputtered Coatings for Large Aperture, High-Energy Laser Optics

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: MDA09039

    Large diameter optics have numerous challenges, including fabrication, surface figure, weight, transport, mounting, materials choice, and thermal concerns. High Energy Laser applications bring additional challenging parameters to the mix, such as surface micro-roughness, laser damage threshold, coating adhesion, and coating thermal conductivity. The developments in this proposal will result in a ...

  3. Resource Optimization for Battle Management

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA09026

    The U.S. DoD has made ballistic missile defense a top priority. In response, MDA is developing a layered ballistic missile defense system (BMDS). A key requirement for this system is a global battle manager that efficiently and effectively coordinates the actions of the component sensors and weapon systems, and rapidly provides operators with engagement solutions. This is a significant challenge b ...

  4. Track Correlation

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA09027

    The key to successful track correlation, and early intercept, is to discriminate between observations of multiple threats, eliminate false tracks, and characterize each threat prior to ingestion of angles-angles data into a tracking filter framework. SciTec"s novel approach to this challenge is to extract features that are available only during the boost phase, fuse these features with track data ...

  5. High Bandwidth Terahertz Communication Link

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A11079

    MaXentric, in collaboration with North Carolina State University, is proposing a unique sub-terahertz D-band wireless communication radio that can deliver throughputs exceeding 1 Gb/s at a range of 1 km using a D-band Integrated with V-band Architecture or DIVA. DIVAs Phase I development efforts include the design of a D-band based MMIC that can directly connect to the Gb/S V-band Transceiver (GVT ...

  6. Real-time Rotorcraft Damage Detection and Control (R2D2C)

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N112118

    Current technology health and usage monitoring system (HUMS) equipment are very aircraft-specific, as they are based on data-driven methodologies that require significant flight test data to define sensitivities and measurement norms. The proposed approach incorporates an embedded aeromechanical rotor model within its monitoring function that greatly expands both the scope and the range of possibl ...

  7. Direct Ascent Vulnerability and Reachability Services Suite

    SBC: PRINCETON SATELLITE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF093067

    ABSTRACT: We plan to develop an operation-ready version of the next-generation Direct Ascent Vulnerability web service with UDOP visualization. The DAV suite will include the dynamic predictive functionality and reachability service prototyped in Phase I and a new vehicle trajectory prediction algorithm to be prototyped in Phase II. The DAV tools take available data on the orbital catalog and mis ...

  8. Combat Swimmer Situational Awareness Systems Integration Effort

    SBC: CEEBUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM11002

    Ceebus Technologies is proposing a development plan to monitor diver vital biometric data and collect SCUBA status data, store the data, analyze and compare the data to normal, generate alerts or alarms if necessary, send the data to other underwater diver teammates and to a surface vessel. Sensors on the diver to monitor the biometric vitals will be investigated from the existing sensor market. ...

  9. Multiscale Fiber Reinforced Polymer Nanocomposite for Wide-span Field Assembled Bridges

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: A11063

    There is an unmet need in the US Army for wide-span bridges that can be deployed in the field. This requires lightweight materials and tool-kit designs for easy and quick installation. The materials must possess enhanced load-bearing capacity, improved weather resistance, and longer service lives than conventional materials. In this Phase I program, we propose to demonstrate the feasibility of a f ...

  10. Wideband Multi-Carrier Digital Up-Converter

    SBC: WELKIN SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: A10016

    Welkin Sciences proposes to build the Direct L-band Converter (DLBC) designed during Phase I, which has a digital up-converter (DUC) function for the Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program. The DLBC design also provides two very important additional capabilities that go beyond the functionality solicited by the SBIR A10-016 topic description. First, the L-band 950 MHz to 1950 MHz ...
