  1. Ultrahigh Temperature Materials for Missile Defense Propulsion and Aerothermal Applications

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA09T002

    This proposal addresses the requirement to significantly improve the affordability, maintainability and performance of KKV DACS components. Exothermics and their Phase 1 partner Southern Research Institute will endeavor to increase the performance, lower the cost and enhance the technical property characteristics of SDACS and hypersonic components by examining the use of a new class of ultrahigh t ...

  2. M&S Uncertainty Quantification

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: MDA12T007

    An emerging consensus in engineering holds that aleatory uncertainty should be propagated by traditional methods of probability theory but that epistemic uncertainty may require methods that do not confuse incertitude with variability by requiring every possibility be associated with a probability that it occurs. Therefore, although Monte Carlo shells that re-run calculations many times while var ...

  3. Storable Clean Ethane/ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE)

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: MDA18T005

    he Storable Clean Ethane-ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE) is a proposed technology designed to provide upper stages and spacecraft with non-toxic, liquid, non-cryogenic, high-performance propulsion with an Isp on the order of 300 seconds. The propellant components are stored as liquids under their saturated vapor pressures. With the SCENE, nitrous oxide is used as an autogenously pressurized oxidiz ...

  5. Low Cost Multi Junction Solar Cells for Space Applications Incorporating Quantum Wells Sub Cells

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: MDA09T005

    Spire Semiconductor proposes a novel MOCVD growth scheme that will substantially reduce the production costs of inverted multi-junction solar cells. Incorporating quantum well structures will be investigated as a means to improve device efficiency and end of life cell performance in the space environment. The theoretical target efficiency is 39.8% under the AM0 spectrum.

  6. HEL Analysis Tool with Experimentally Corroborated DPAL Rate Coefficients

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) have great potential for missile defense and other applications. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team proposes to develop a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and determine key kinetic rate ...

  7. An Efficient 35 K Cryocooler Driven by Electrochemical Compressors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA09T007

    Next-generation missile defense systems will utilize infrared sensing technologies that will require efficient cooling at low temperatures. We propose to develop an innovative solid-state cryocooler that can provide cooling at temperatures below 35 K while rejecting heat at temperatures up to about 300 K. The cooler uses compact, efficient electrochemical compressors with no moving parts to enha ...

  8. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future MDA space missions will utilize small spacecraft with correspondingly small, advanced sensor systems. Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease detector noise and increase detector sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature. The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enab ...

  10. M&S Uncertainty Quantification

    SBC: NUMERICA CORP            Topic: MDA12T007

    A goal of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) is to use computer simulation of complex systems to make scientifically informed assessments for high-consequence decisions. Because end-to-end empirical data is difficult to obtain for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), computer simulation provides the best method for understanding BMDS capabilities against a wide range of threats. Numerica Co ...
