  1. Integrated Thermal Management and Wafer-Scale Packaging for High-Power VCSELs

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA08T011

    Aerius Photonics is proposing to develop high-power Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) and arrays on 4” substrates with an integrated thermal management approach to improve the thermal performance on an entirely wafer-level manufacturing compatible process. This is critical as waste heat and wafer-scale manufacturing approaches are driving factors for performance and costs in a la ...

  2. High Sensitivity Light-Weight Gyroscope

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: MDA08T005

    Gyroscopes are found in nearly every airplane, many cars, robots, missiles, and more. The reason for such broad, wide-spread use is simple: gyroscopes are excellent tools for determining rotation, and can be quite sensitive. Improving the sensitivity of optical gyroscopes while also reducing their size and weight has proven to be a significant challenge. To provide a solution, Los Gatos Researc ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: MDA17T004

    A significant weight reduction on missile platforms could increase maneuverability of the payload and allow more capable payloads. High temperature composite materials offer the means by which low cost and lighter weight missile structures can be achieved. Approved for Public Release 19-MDA-10203 (4 Sep 19)

  8. Tilt-Nose Control System Development for High-Speed Stratospheric Interceptors

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T002

    Recent advances in the hypersonic system capabilities of adversary nations threaten the battlespace supremacy of US forces. Missile defense systems capable of extended high-g maneuvering at stratospheric altitudes and hypersonic Mach numbers will provide the MDA with additional flexibility in defending the US against emerging hypersonic threats. A key enabling technology for the deployment of such ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1. To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates. Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is neede ...
