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

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: MDA11T004

    Reductions and reallocations of telemetry wireless bandwidth have prompted the need for DoD agencies to adapt to operation in more restricted and less desirable frequency spectrum. Telemetering systems must evolve to address these frequency allocation changes, while retaining operational characteristics that are vital to MDA mission success. The design and implementation of high performance transm ...

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

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    The goal of this STTR project is to develop an engineered growth substrate technology that will enable low defect MCT growth on silicon that is comparable in defect density to MCT grown on lattice matched CZT substrates. The layer transfer process elements demonstrated in Phase I will be further optimized to produce low defect density MCT on silicon substrates in Phase II. SRICO will achieve this ...

  3. Methodologies for Developing Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA11003

    Under this SBIR Imaging Systems Technology will develop a large area IR scene generation system based on its Plasma-shell technology. Plasma-shells are tiny glass bubbles filled with gas. When energy is applied across the Plasma-shell the gas ionizes to form plasma. The Plasma-shells are applied to substrates to form large area arrays. The arrays are very rugged, and can be made very large. Plasma ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Multi-Functional Nano-Composite Materials and Manufacturing Processes for Interceptor

    SBC: Vector Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA11020

    The Missile Defense Agency is planning to develop a Next Generation AEGIS Missile (NGAM) as a Ballistic Missile Defense system for deployment in 2020 for defense against threat reentry vehicles. The NGAM system requirements for longer range intercepts and higher velocity leads to the NGAM requirements for lightweight subsystem components including the guidance section (GS) electronic components. T ...

  6. Improved Techniques for Optimistic Modeling

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA11031

    Our proposal specifically addresses the stated requirements of the solicitation; we will develop and deploy tools, methods, and models for improving optimistic modeling techniques. The proposed EDAptive PROMOTE solution builds on previous Edaptive Computing, Inc (ECI) knowledge and technology itself innovative to reduce and diagnose rollback errors in optimistic models and convert non-optimistic ...

  7. Reentry Vehicle and Wake Analysis Tool

    SBC: GoHypersonic Inc.            Topic: MDA10023

    During hypersonic reentry, the flow around reentry vehicles is ionized resulting in electro-optical and infrared emissions, detectable radar cross-sections, and attenuation of signals transmitted through the plasma. Modeling these flows requires both expertise and substantial user time. The Phase II program will address these issues by developing the Reentry Vehicle and Wake Analysis Tool that wil ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
