  1. Aerospace Vehicle Signature Modeling Technologies

    SBC: GoHypersonic Inc.            Topic: MDA15T003

    During hypersonic reentry, the flow around reentry vehicles is dominated by its high enthalpy and high temperature effects, which must be properly modeled in order to generate flowfields from which trustworthy vehicle signatures can be extracted. Ionization, plasmas, non-equilibrium chemistry and modeling of vibration energy, surface chemistry including ablation and associated surface recession, a ...

  2. Improved Techniques for Optimistic Modeling

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA11031

    Running a simulation on a parallel or distributed computing platform can decrease the execution time and improve real-time responsiveness. Optimistic Parallel Discrete Event Simulation (OPDES) model performance improvements derive from partitioning portions of the overall model to distributed computational nodes and executing them concurrently. Executing concurrently yet independently may cause so ...

  3. Rapid, High-Quality C/C Composites

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB171013

    Cornerstone Research Group (CRG) is reducing the variability and lead-time associated with production of carbon-carbon composites using MG Resins, a unique, high char yield material system as a replacement to typical phenolic and pitch precursors. In Phase I, CRG proved feasibility through characterization of C/C composites made with MG Resin, in which no densification steps were conducted. Very h ...

  4. High Performance MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit for Missile Systems

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: MDA17015

    The proposed project aims to improve the SWaP-C of tactical-grade IMUs for use in the navigation system of guided weapons. Spectral Energies and its partners will achieve this goal by using advanced machine learning algorithms to reduce error in commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) MEMS IMUs.1. Immediate benefits to MDA: The proposed product would provide an IMU to the DOD with comparable precision and ...

  5. Innovative Methodologies for Manufacturing of Lethality Test Articles

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: MDA17T001

    Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) is an attractive technology for the production of lethality test articles due to the potential for significantly reduced lead time and manufacturing cost. However, in order to be effective in providing accurate lethality data, the properties of the AM material have to match closely the properties of conventionally manufactured alloys found in real threat target ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Advanced Reentry Vehicle and Wake Models

    SBC: GoHypersonic Inc.            Topic: MDA10023

    At hypersonic flow conditions, the flow field around reentry vehicles is ionized, resulting in electro-optical emissions, detectable radar cross-sections, and attenuation of signals transmitted through the plasma. Ablative heat shields may further increase the levels of electrons in the plasma around the hardbody and in the wake. We propose to extend an existing high-fidelity computational fluid d ...
