  2. RF-IR Target Characterization for Feature-Aided Track Correlation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA12005

    To maintain a complete, timely and coherent situational awareness picture, missile defense command and control functionality typically requires information to be integrated from a variety of different semi-autonomous sensors tracking the battle from different viewing geometries. These sensors, whether EO/IR or RF, typically each develop their own internal tracks upon objects within the scene, whic ...

  7. Water Effects Correction Software (WECS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA12020

    Infrared (IR) target scenes can suffer from distorting effects by atmospheric species present along the atmospheric paths through which the signals are propagated, causing errors in derived target characteristics (e.g., position, velocity, angle). The main contributor to these errors is refraction of the signals by water, in its various forms (e.g., vapor, cloud, air-ice mix, etc.), along the path ...

  9. Thermal Isolation of Solid Rocket Motor Exit Cone and Nozzle

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA12027

    Current strategic solid rockets motors, such as the SM-3 third stage rocket motor (TSRM), employ highly aluminized propellants with gas temperatures of approximately 6,500F. Carbon-carbon nozzle throats and carbon cloth phenolic (CCP) exit cones are commonly used to manage the propellant exhaust. However, heat transfer from these components to the nozzle housing and exit cone bond-line joint cur ...
