  2. Cloud Background Clutter Suppression for Early Detection and Track


    The ability to counter theater ballistic missiles requires early detection, tracking, and warning of their launch and trajectory. Today's ballistic missile warning systems are limited in their ability to detect ballistic launches early in the flight. Current systems operate in bands where the atmosphere absorbs most of the energy. These systems are not able to detect the ballistic missiles unti ...

  4. Rapid Mirror Fabrication with Nanolaminate Surface

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T005

    The objectives of the Phase I work are: 1) to demonstrate the fabrication of a small scale (~2 inches) replicated hybrid/composite mirror assemblage, based on the SiC/Si3N4 nano-laminates and 2) to measure the optical qualities of the mirror surface. The proposed replication technique is capable of providing fast and low-cost production of the high optical surface finish of large mirrors. The ce ...

  5. A > 30% Efficient Space Solar Cell with Improved Radiation Tolerance

    SBC: Essential Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA04080

    Essential Research Incorporated proposes the development of a high efficiency, metamorphic triplejunction, III-V, space solar cell that will also have significantly higher radiation tolerance. The AM0 one sun efficiency of this AlGaInP/InGaAsP/InGaAs cell will be 31.7%, compared to 28% for the state-of-the-art InGaP/GaAs/Ge cell. Since most of the radiation damage in these cells can be attribut ...
