  1. Novel and Cost Effective Rain Erosion Tests at Supersonic Speeds

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: BMDO02012

    In Phase I, a demonstration SUpersonic Rain Erosion (SURE) facility was developed which demonstrated the capability of producing spherical, millimeter-sized droplets repeatedly at velocities up to 1200 feet per second. Data were collected to extend the speed range of the facility and droplet size. Based on these results, a Phase II prototype facility will be built that could attain speeds of 240 ...

  2. Missile Plume Radar Attenuation and Cross Section

    SBC: Propulsion Science & Technology Inc            Topic: MDA03078

    This program will develop a modern simulation tool to predict RF interactions (attenuation, diffraction, reflection, Doppler and backscatter) with missile exhaust plumes. The tool will be based, in part, on methodologies contained with the currently available PARCS(Plume Attenuated Cross Section) code. PARCS will be upgraded and reconfigured to include a Maxwell's equation solver. A number of li ...

  3. Very Low Absorption Interference Coatings for 1.0 to 1.3 Micron Laser Optics


    This SBIR project is aimed at the development of very low absorption optical coatings, for components used in the Airborne Laser (ABL) missile defense system. We are developing a novel thin film deposition technology, based on remote plasma enhanced metal organic chemical vapor deposition (RPE-MOCVD). This technology is capable of producing oxide coatings with exceptional purity, excellent oxyge ...

  5. An InGaAs FPA for Multiple Purpose Imaging from the Visible through the Short Wave Infrared

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: MDA03073

    We will design, develop, and deliver a 128x128 pixel indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) focal plane array (FPA) camera that satisfies or exceeds all of the technical requirements of this solicitation. The use of a substrate-removed InGaAs photodiode array will exhibit high quantum efficiency from 0.4 µm through 1.7 mm. The camera will thus be usable both for visible imaging and for the imaging of ...

  6. Radiation Hardness by Design and Integration Production of 8-16 Mega-bit SRAM


    This program will demonstrate at scale, that radiation hardness by design (HBD)of 8-16 Mega-bit SRAM of state-of-the-art (0.25-0.13µm) commercially fabricated CMOS materials with prompt dose hardness targeted to exceed 1E11 Rad(Si)/sec. The Phase I effort showed that MDA strategic needs could be advantageously meet in a commercial fabrication line, thus minimizing cost and leveraging commercial ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Advanced In-Flight Interceptor Communications System (IFICS) Error Detection/Correction

    SBC: EFFICIENT CHANNEL CODING            Topic: MDA03037

    The MDA03-37 Phase I research explored the potential of improvement of adding turbocodes to MDA's IFICS system. In the related Phase II effort, ECC proposes to develop the hardware and firmware necessary implement the Phase I algorithms in an end-to-end communications link, and perform the testing and measurements required to validate the results obtained in MDA03-37. As an optional extension to ...

  9. A highly manufacturable technology for radiation-hardened and high-temperature system applications

    SBC: UNITED SILICON CARBIDE, INC.            Topic: MDA04036

    This SBIR Phase I project is proposed to develop a highly manufacturable technology for radiation-hardened high-temperature SiC devices for both military and commercial applications. The innovative design in device structure and in processing of the proposed SiC power device will make it possible to offer the ultimate high radiation tolerance. The SiC device will also overcome the bottleneck probl ...

  10. 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 ...
