  1. A Quantitative Non-destructive Residual Stress Assessment Tool for Pipelines

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    There exists a wide-range need in both industry and government for quantitative residual stress measurements. Generation 2 Materials Technology LLC (G2MT) will collaborate with partners from industry and government to calibrate and commercialize the eStress system to assess residual stress from mechanical damage and re-rounding. The industrial members, consortiums, and government laboratories who ...

  2. Intelligent Adaptive Needs Characterization for M&S Systems Engineering

    SBC: 5-D SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA11T003

    5-D Systems and the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) Autonomous Control Engineering (ACE) Laboratory will prototype a system concept and produce a long term development plan for a tool to intelligently assist MDA M & S Systems Engineers in understanding the needs of their stakeholders. Our prototype will address the elicitation, capture, characterization, and refinement of a stakeholder fun ...

  3. AIMSMART: Adaptive, Interactive MDA Semantic Model-based Articulation of Required Technology for M&S

    SBC: CYCORP, INC.            Topic: MDA11T003

    The process of an MDA stakeholder specifying a needed modeling and simulation system has many problems: they may be ambiguous, overly specific, overly general, contradictory, etc. Symbolic knowledge-based representation and reasoning systems have matured to the point where they can ameliorate this. E.g., an extension of Cyc can help a Marines ISR-E requirements officer prepare a JCIDS CDD needs ...

  4. Non-Toxic Propulsion Systems for BMDS Applications

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: MDA11025

    ORBITEC proposes to develop non-toxic propulsion systems to replace hyradzine-derivative systems in interceptor applications. In ongoing work, ORBITEC has been developing high-performance ionic liquid fuels. These inherently non-volatile fuels promise safer, less sensitive systems while providing specific impulse comparable to MMH and density specific impulse 10-15% higher. Because the ionic li ...

  5. Development of a Low Observable, Multi-Band Antenna System

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: MDA11040

    Targets for the BMDS must maintain signatures that resemble specified threat targets with high validity while simultaneously providing telemetry to the ground. Current telemetry systems distort the target RCS which substantially reduces the validity of test signatures. Systems and Processes Engineering Corporation, teaming with Ohio State University Electro Science Laboratory and with ITT is propo ...

  6. Wavelength Stabilized High-Power Diode Lasers for Alkali Atom Pumping

    SBC: Photodigm, Inc.            Topic: MDA10007

    This Phase II SBIR proposal is submitted to address the need for high-power narrow spectral linewidth diode laser pump sources in alkali vapor lasers. Diode-pumped alkali vapor lasers (DPALs) can be most efficiently pumped with spectrally-stabilized laser diode arrays (LDAs) with very narrow linewidths (a few GHz). This allows DPAL operation at lower pressure and increased efficiency due to opti ...

  7. Central Anti-Tamper Engine (CATE)

    SBC: QUICKFLEX INC.            Topic: MDA08043

    Modern sensor technology is capable of detecting miniscule changes in an operating environment, and providing a vast supply of precise data regarding potential causes for alarm. Unfortunately, since many tamper-detection responses involve disabling critical program information, the system designer must establish thresholds that are either set loose enough to not provide an adequate level of secur ...

  8. Development of High Performance SLS Epi Materials for IR FPA Applications

    SBC: INTELLIEPI IR, INC            Topic: MDA11019

    This Phase I SBIR effort will develop robust and high performance infrared detector technology based on GaSb-based Type II strained-layer superlattices (SLS). The epitaxy development effort will focus on improving QE, reducing dark current, and reducing defects. The device design will be based on the NASA-JPL CBIRD structure. Advanced dual-band LW/LW design based on CBIRD will also be explored.

  9. Development of Advanced Barrier Device for Smart IR FPA Space Applications

    SBC: INTELLIEPI IR, INC            Topic: MDA09014

    This Phase II SBIR effort will develop high performance infrared detector arrays for MDA space applications using advanced barrier structure type-II superlattices based on GaSb. The epitaxy development will increase performance (QE, low dark current) with design iterations of NRL hybrid superlattice barrier structures for single-color large-format LWIR and two-color FPA.

  10. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...
