  1. Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) for Space-based Applications


    The use of GPUs in space is desirable as they provide means to boost the performance of CPU-based computers in a spacecraft. This will enable the processing of raw sensing data on-board, reducing significantly the amount of data that needs to be transmitted to the ground. This represents savings in power and radio link bandwidth/complexity. Unfortunately, as all microelectronics, modern GPUs are s ...

  2. Advanced Flash III-V LADAR Camera

    SBC: Princeton Infrared Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA18018

    This research will develop a 128x128 on 30 µm pixel pitch radiation hardened Laser Detection and Ranging (LADAR) system for spaced-based long range imaging. This advanced LADAR system will be integrated with an InGaAsP-based linear-mode Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) optimized for 1.06 µm operation. Studies will be completed to optimize the APD structure for radiation hardness, achieving gains ...

  3. Advanced NPB Low Energy Beam Transport Technologies

    SBC: Little Prairie Services            Topic: MDA18019

    In the near thirty years since the BEAR experiment, many technologies directly or indirectly applicable to an advanced neutral particle beam (NPB) have emerged due to other DOD programs, commercial investments, or other government programs. Key elements of a space-based NPB system include mass, size, and efficiency. The work proposed herein results from investments in the commercial arena, primari ...

  4. Innovative Signature Exploitation for Long Range Object Discrimination

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA11010

    SciTec, Inc. has extensive experience developing robust, signature based autonomous exploitation capabilities for data collected from Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) systems. These signature based capabilities are typically robust because they exploit features with known causal relationships to threat characteristics and behavior, and because they are constructed using rigorous mathematical framewo ...

  5. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM131004

    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentric’s wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. ...

  6. Compact Inertial Measurement System

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06022

    Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to develop a compact inertial measurement system (CIMS) by combining two inertial rate sensing devices. One rate sensor uses magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) for high frequency motion measurement and is denoted the Angular Rate Sensor (ARS). The second sensor is a new micro-electro-mechancial system (MEMS) gyro denoted the Disk Resonant Gyro (DRG) and is us ...

  7. Low Cost, Radiation Hardened, Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06046

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) requires the development of a miniaturized, lightweight, radiation hardened, inertial measurement unit (IMU) to provide high accuracy inertial knowledge in both absolute location/velocity and angular orientation. Proposed MDA systems, such as the Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS), are required to track objects at great distances and relay inertial info ...

  8. Fast Curing Modular Composite Patch System for Field Applications

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: SOCOM07002

    SOCOM requires a method to field repair multiple materials as well as to mount armor and related hardware for a variety of tactical purposes with a composite material. To address this need, we propose application of a “Modular UV Patch” (MUVP) system that incorporates ultraviolet curing resin systems and an innovative technique for delivering the UV light through optically lossy fibers that f ...

  9. Computer Network Defense (CND) Technologies

    SBC: MULVAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA06001

    Recent preliminary research results have shown, (a) that misconfiguration bugs are an important source of vulnerability in enterprise network and software installations, and (b) how it may be possible to construct practical and useful tools that cyber security managers can use to analyze the security of their enterprise network and software configurations. This rsearch prototype analyzes the curre ...

  10. Simulation Tool to Intercept Multiple Missiles Employing Quick and Random Evasive Flight Path


    This proposal is for the development of a versatile, computationally-efficient simulation tool for integrating flight path data from missile interceptors and analyzing defensive missile scenarios. The simulation tool will provide a user-friendly platform for design and testing of cooperative missile-interception techniques. We also propose to develop innovative cooperative control algorithms for ...
