  1. Enhancement of Ballistic Missile Defense System Level Simulation Operations Through Multi-core Processing

    SBC: ISSAC Corp            Topic: MDA13T003

    The ISSAC Team propose a novel method to encapsulate legacy models and simulations that allows these components to take advantage of modern, multi-core, multi-processor hardware suites. Encapsulating these legacy codes provides 3 primary advantages to deal with complex systems and systems of systems (Air Force, Navy, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) ...

  4. AIMSMART: Adaptive, Interactive MDA Semantic Model-based Articulation

    SBC: CYCORP, INC.            Topic: MDA11T003

    We will develop automatic ontology-aligning software, leveraging the enormous existing Cyc AI system to drive the formulation and ranking (pro/con argumentation) of hypotheses about term-term relationships, especially where the relationship is not simple 1-to-1 correspondence. Multiple Cyc micro-theories (contexts) will be created, to hold incommensurate alternative mappings, and logical conseque ...

  5. Weapon Inspection, Sustainment and Recorder Device

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA14T001

    Mainstream Engineering Corporation is developing a prognostic health monitoring system for missile electronics. Called the Weapon Inspection, Sustainment, and Recorder Device (WISARD), this stamp-sized health monitoring system operates on 3.6 mW of power and measures temperature, vibration, and humidity to estimate the remaining life of an electronics assembly. In Phase I, we developed the failure ...

  6. Microelectronics Component Adhesive Selection and Design Rules for Failure Avoidance

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA14T002

    Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of failure in microelectronics, which raises reliability concerns for MDA and its system integrators. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a physics based modeling and testing protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditions to stress ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Multi-Physics Analysis Tool for High-Energy Gas Lasers

    SBC: Material Flow Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA16T001

    Based on the results of our Phase I work, one significant barrier to optimizing battery performance lies in understanding the relationship between bulk solids and particle flow properties and the flow into the die. Our hypothesis: an increase in quality batteries production can be achieved if powder preparation process can be optimized and the die filling process controlled. We feel that control o ...

  10. Tin Whisker Mitigation by Photonic Sintering for Sn-based Surface Finishes

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T010

    Missile Defense Agency is seeking new technologies to reduce the tendency to form tin whiskers in electronic assemblies and microelectronic devices. RoHS regulations enacted by the European Union have generated a global shift toward Pb-free electronic components and circuitry. Pb-free solders create reliability problems in military applications such as aircraft and missiles that are subject to h ...
