  2. An Ultra-High Temperature Ceramic with Improved Fracture Toughness and Oxidation Resistance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA09T002

    Hypersonic missile defense systems are being designed to reach global threats. During flight, external surfaces are predicted to reach temperatures in excess of 2200C. As a result, innovative, high performance thermal protection systems (TPS) are of great demand. Among ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC), it is well known that ZrB2- and HfB2-based materials have high melting temperatures and ...

  5. Fusion of IR and Radar for Enhanced Threat Recognition and Interception (FIRE-TRAIN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    The proliferation of sophisticated ballistic missile systems threatens the ability of the U.S. to project military power and defend its deployed forces, its allies, and possibly even the homeland. Adversaries continue to improve their ballistic missile technologies, and are expected to incorporate multiple warheads, countermeasures, and decoys. The AEGIS systemthe sea-based component of the U.S. b ...

  6. Feature-Aided RF/IR Track Correlation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    Missile tracking sensors such as radar and EO/IR are often called upon to track constellations of multiple closely spaced objects, and recognize pairs of matching tracks from each sensor"s view. The outcome of this track correlation process is crucial for missile defense interceptors, as any failure to identify matches with certainty, for example because of an excessive number of tracks associate ...
