  1. Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing Technologies

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11006

    Current acquisition, tracking and pointing (ATP) technologies employ optical image processing and/or inertial measurement unit (IMU) data to mitigate image jitter in critical air and space borne targeting applications. Image processing is typically performed using the Kalman filter or some variant thereof, despite the fact that these filters have known shortcomings. In general, they are ill suit ...

  2. Additively Manufactured Lightweight Aluminum Structures for Future Interceptors

    SBC: ASRC Federal Astronautics, LLC            Topic: MDA18006

    The selective laser melting (SLM) of Scalmalloy is proposed for the manufacture of lightweight components on futures interceptor and kill vehicle architectures. Scalmalloy powder has been developed specifically for additive manufacturing (AM) by Airbus APWorks, and has properties that are comparable to 7075-T6 aluminum. Phase I efforts will include a trade study demonstrate that an AM Scalmalloy s ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Materials for High Strain Rate Applications

    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 targets ...

  4. A Development of Ceramic YAG Fibers for High Power Laser Applications

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: MDA09036

    In this Phase I work, UES will advance its current patented technology towards a novel ceramic process to produce high quality polycrystalline YAG fibers that meet the required properties for high power fiber laser applications. We show that YAG is far superior to silica as a material choice for fiber lasers, using a computational evaluation. UES has, over the past 5 years, developed a patented te ...

  5. Advanced ABIR Correlation and Fusion Algorithms for an Enhanced C2BMC

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA07046

    The current U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is comprised of a range of components, the integration of which is the responsibility of the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) system. In the current architecture, track data from Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) systems and ground-based radar systems are processed separately. However, ongoing work is devel ...

  6. Advanced Architecture and Process Techniques for High-Density, Radiation-Hardened Non-Volatile Memory

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA08023

    For mission critical data storage on systems operating in natural space and nuclear weapons environments, the use of radiation hardened (RH) non-volatile memory (NVM) is imperative. Today's complex computer controlled electronic systems use NVM to store critical data for proper operation. This typically includes configuration parameters which allow the system to return to a known configuration a ...

  8. Advanced Data Management and Mining for BMDS Digital Simulations

    SBC: Nou Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA18011

    Sherlock provides a data mining solution that automates the discovery of correlations and causations between BMDS performance and critical factors within large amounts of missile defense simulation data. The future missile defense simulations will include digital simulations capable of generating orders of magnitude more data than can be handled by the current MDA Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL ...

  9. Advanced Data Management and Mining for BMDS Digital Simulations

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA18011

    The MDA relies on complex simulations to test and enhance capabilities of the ballistic missile defense system. This requires extensive simulation and analysis of results. As simulations become more advanced, they produce more data. It is essential to begin now to develop improved techniques to manage this increased data and make it more accessible for analysis. Simulation data must be analyzed to ...

  10. Advanced Development of Inception Technologies for Requirements Management (ADIT-RM)

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: MDA11030

    Preliminary definition and analysis of Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) requirements in an isolated, manual, and loosely controlled change environment shows significant overlap in effort, resulting in a major increase to cost, schedule, mission classification, subsystem propagation, and trace of system impacts. To assist MDA with movement of BMDS mission objectives to mission requirements, ...
