  1. 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 ...

  2. Metrology of Thin Films on Sapphire Substrate

    SBC: Optowares Incorporated            Topic: DMEA16B001

    There is a lack of a non-destructive metrology tool to measure the thickness of thin films on sapphire substrates due to the transparency of the substrate. Leveraging our extensive experience building sensor systems combined with MIT Lincoln Laboratory’s expertise in theoretical modeling, we will design and build an innovative thin film measurement tool using Raman spectroscopy. Our metrology sy ...

  3. Thickness Measurement Technology for Thin Films on Sapphire Substrate

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DMEA16B001

    Silicon-on-sapphire (SOS) integrated circuits have achieved popularity due to their high speed performance and low power consumption in radio frequency applications. An important aspect of the SOS fabrication process that must be verified to maximize yield is the thickness of the thin films deposited on the sapphire substrate. However, due to the transparent nature of sapphire, current optical met ...

  4. Proactive Risk Monitoring Using Predictive Analytics

    SBC: ARCTOS Technology Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA16T002

    Presently the missile defense systems are using a reactive and program-centric framework for assessing industrial base risk. The Phase I effort focused on developing a wide and deep network algorithm using Industrial Product-Support Vendor (IPV) Gen II program for predicting the probability of failure. The proposed Phase II effort leverages the Phase I work and will focus on three main goals:(1) I ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Fabrication of Ta-Hf-C-based Ultra High Temperature Composites

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: MDA09T002

    This Phase II STTR program seeks a new fabrication method to produce stronger (>100 kpsi) and tougher (>10 MPam1/2) ultra-high temperature HfC-based composites (UHTC) with an outstanding oxidation resistance for advanced rocket nozzle throat components. UES will apply a novel"Top Down"approach to control the microstructures of the composites. This approach will produce a very unique grain structur ...

  10. Modeling Operator Reasoning and Performance for Human-in-Control Simulation (MORPHIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    Propose development of a human-in-control (HIC) modeling capability that can: (1) represent the breadth of operator decision-making processes across missile defense elements, (2) scale to deliver the appropriate level of fidelity, and (3) be extensible to future operator needs. To provide this HIC modeling capability, we propose to develop and evaluate a full-scope prototype of Modeling Operato ...
