  1. Sensor Resource Management

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA11011

    The expansion in the Missile Defense Agency"s mission to include emphasis on theater and regional missile defense necessitates the development of innovative concepts and techniques for employment planning and real time tasking of a variety of distributed sensor resources. Needed are algorithms in a number of closely coupled areas including: fusion of information from disparate and possibly hetero ...

  2. Novel Surface Preparation Methods for Existing Metallic Structures

    SBC: ECOSIL TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: MDA13T010

    The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of novel surface preparation methods that are easier to apply on metal substrates in various field environments while still enhancing the corrosion protective performance of topcoats. This is made possible by the characteristics of a patented pretreatment technology developed at Ecosil that can be spray or immersion applied. This novel ...

  3. Dual S & C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: MDA11T004

    Missile flight test telemetry has been performed at S band (2200 2395 MHz) since the 1960s. In 2007, Department of Defense test ranges acquired access to new C-band frequency ranges (4400 4950 and 5091 5150 MHz). While these new bands offer a substantial increase in the total bandwidth available for flight test telemetry, traditional S-band operations will continue for many years, due in part ...

  4. Fabrication of Ta-Hf-C-based Ultra High Temperature Composites

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T002

    This Phase II STTR program seeks a new fabrication method to produce stronger (>100 kpsi) and tougher (>10 MPam1/2) ultra-high temperature HfC-based composites (UHTC) with an outstanding oxidation resistance for advanced rocket nozzle throat components. UES will apply a novel"Top Down"approach to control the microstructures of the composites. This approach will produce a very unique grain structur ...

  5. Innovative Hardware Technologies for Electromagnetic Attack Rejection in Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Radars

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA10T001

    Under this STTR Imaging Systems Technology (IST) will apply novel Plasma-shell technology and expertise with gas plasma systems to shield and protect BMDS Radar. Plasma-shells are tiny hollow gas encapsulating shells. When energy is applied across the shell, the gas inside ionizes into a plasma. Theory of plasma-electromagnetic (EM) field interaction shows that, under appropriate conditions, pl ...

  6. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) has been described as one of the most technologically significant semiconductor materials and is the most widely used material for long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging. The current challenge is to produce MCT over large focal plane array size at low cost and high reliability without compromising sensitivity or noise performance. MCT on silicon substrates is highly attr ...

  7. Sensor Resource Management

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Today"s Ballistic Missile Defense networks consist of many different types of sensors and platforms, and given the expanded focus of MDA on theater and regional missile defense where multiple"raids"can be launched from different sites toward numerous targets, it is crucial that they can be dynamically tasked and deployed effectively in real-time to realize their full potential in achieving overall ...

  8. Materials and Life Cycle Sustainability for Structural Missile Applications

    SBC: Performance Polymer Solutions Inc.            Topic: MDA10020

    This Phase I Small Business Innovative Research Program will develop and demonstrate the technology to produce large-scale, high temperature, lightweight composite missile structures for transition to a fielded weapons system where weight minimization and resistance to high temperature exposure is critical. Performance Polymer Solutions Inc."s composite system has the ability to survive in extrem ...

  9. Improved Thrust Termination Modeling for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA10022

    To improve the predictive capabilities of solid rocket motor end-of-burn phenomena, two analysis tools will be further developed. An existing engineering tool will go through continued development and validation, while an existing solid rocket ballistics model, built and demonstrated within a commercial CFD platform, will be expanded to allow for conjugate heat transfer between the burning grain ...

  10. Photonic Multi-Beam Receive-Only Arrays

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA10026

    We propose to define a dynamically reconfigurable photonics-based system to efficiently collect, down-convert, distribute, and selectively combine the return signals from multiple array elements to a set of digital processors. Electronic signals from the array elements will modulate optical carrier signals. With an appropriate choice of optical carrier signal and photonic architecture, the signals ...
