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. Fail-Safe Thermal Activation Components for Insensitive Munitions

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: MDA05001

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG), proposes the development of heat-activated pressure venting mechanisms actuated by shape memory polymers (SMP) as a means for meeting insensitive munitions (IM) requirements for ammunition containers. SMP composite materials provide the same strength as conventional composites at normal operating temperatures. However, at a threshold activation temperature ...

  3. Test-Ready Model for Flexible System-of-Systems

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA05056

    Producing dependable, flexible system-of-systems that exhibit predictable behavior and fault tolerance during runtime is a daunting task. Although formal methods hold a lot of promise, there are several issues that have prevented its use in the mainstream. Specifically, use of formal methods requires very skilled and experienced users, some formal methods do not scale well as the system size grows ...

  4. Software Formalisms

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA05051

    Modern software development processes increasingly depend on complete specifications, the ability to execute the specifications expressed in a lightweight formalism, and the ability to verify properties expressed in that formalism. EDAptive Computing, Inc. (ECI) team has designed the Model Checking and Execution of Specifications using Lightweight Formalisms (ModSpec) program to deliver this comb ...

  5. Development of a Laser Micromachining Process for the Fabrication of SiC Mirrors

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: MDA04086

    The primary goal of this Phase 2 proposal is the construction of a multi-axis laser micromachining workstation for the fabrication of SiC mirrors and optical bench components to reduce both cost and long lead-times associated with current beryllium optics. Phase 1 results clearly indicated that laser micromachining can significantly reduce cost and increase the precision when compared to conventi ...

  6. Software Modem for Kill Vehicle & IFICS

    SBC: NOVA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA04066

    Nova Engineering proposes a Flexible, Interoperable Spaceborne Transceiver (FIST) program for the development of a software definable radio (SDR) modem for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV). A programmable hardware architecture is proposed that affords the benefits of SDR reconfigurability under the rigorous EKV environmental and size/weight/power constrain ...

  7. Miniaturization of RF subsystems for robust miniature applications

    SBC: NOVA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA04168

    Nova proposes to develop a miniature K-band transceiver for use on the Kill Vehicle (KV) of the Multiple Kill Vehicles (MKV) program. Work to be performed on this contract consists of three main work items: (1) Requirements gathering and system design, (2) Prototype development, and (3) Demonstration of communication link between two prototype miniature transceivers. Nova will team with Harris C ...

  8. Missile Communication Alternatives and Trades

    SBC: NOVA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA05065

    Nova and Harris propose to design a communication subsystem for the Carrier Vehicle (CV) of the Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV) system. The design addresses both the short range (~50 km) exoatmospheric links to the miniature Kill Vehicles (KVs) as well as the long range (>1000 km) links to the ground based IFICS Data Terminals (IDTs). The Phase I work plan begins with gathering requirements for the CV ...

  9. Radiation hardness improvements via automated comprehensive system modeling

    SBC: Technosoft, Inc            Topic: MDA04111

    A collaborative and web-enabled environment is proposed which incorporates workflow and process automation for radiation transport analysis and integrated structural and optical analyses. The environment will automate the translation of design geometry into combinatorial geometry for analysis and the generation of analysis input for radiation transport analysis. It will allow the import of optic ...

  10. Fabrication of Strong and Tough TaC-composites for Advanced Rocket Nozzles via a “Top-Down Process”

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T007

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I program seeks a new fabrication method to produce stronger (>100 kpsi) and tougher (>10 MPa„©m) TaC-based composites for use as zero-eroding rocket nozzle throat components for high performance, reduced-cost boost propulsion systems. UES will apply a novel "Top-Down Process" to control the microstructures of the composites. This approach ...
