  1. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    The proposed Phase II effort investigates innovative finite element formulations, alternative structural modeling procedures and modern parallel computational strategies to improve the computational performance of high fidelity simulation software for modeling the progressive collapse behavior of blast damaged buildings. Its goal is to reduce the time required to compute and visualize high fideli ...

  2. TORC: Modular CMG Technology for Small Satellites

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: MDA08011

    Micro and nano satellites continue to play an increasing role in future military applications. New mission scenarios are driving the need for higher agility and thus for new actuators capable of meeting the higher torque requirements. In Phase 1, Honeybee Robotics developed a mature concept for a high torque, low power CMG-based attitude control actuator called TORC (Tiny Operationally Responsive ...

  3. Multistatic chaotic waveform design for improved missile defense radar systems

    SBC: CAPRARO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09017

    With the advent of new digital receiver exciters it is now feasible to generate innovative waveforms that can adapt rapidly to meet changing environments and scenarios. In order to meet the numerous and diverse objectives of this request for proposal we propose an approach that combines recent advances in the area of radar waveform design based on chaotic systems, multisensor data fusion based on ...

  4. Multistatic signature feature estimation for improved target discrimination

    SBC: CAPRARO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09028

    In order to successfully identify a lethal object in a ballistic missile launch complex it is important to have a good description (or image) of the interrogated area. Radar’s ability to interrogate and accurately characterize complex target environments is of great importance for missile defense. Large targets and high resolution surveillance radar systems provide multiple raw detection data de ...

  5. Information Assurance

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: MDA09030

    Insider threat has been an increasingly important problem given low employee morale in today’s tight economy and the increasing reliance on third-party software (including COTS components) that are generally only available in machine-code form and are in many cases produced oversees. We believe that a key to addressing the problem of insider threat is the use of powerful program analyses i ...

  6. Antitamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: MDA09009

    A reverse engineer who has the ability to examine software in an off-line lab has an enormous advantage over one who is forced to work “in the field”. In contrast to the software’s intended environment, a reverse engineer can work undetected, and can more easily make use of analysis tools such as debuggers or emulators if they have fine control over the system that is executing ...

  7. Innovative Waveforms and Related Signal Processing for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA09017

    Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc. and Michigan Technological University propose to develop and estimate the performance of innovative adaptive wideband waveforms for missile defense radar applications that are jointly and simultaneously optimized on transmit and receive for realistic operating considerations, optimized for expected target, clutter and jamming spectral support and optimized for c ...

  8. Low Cost, Scalable Radar Receive Array Using True Time Delay

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: MDA09015

    HYPRES will bring the power of digital-RF technology and True Time Delay (TTD) beamforming to enable extremely wideband phased array radar receivers. By directly sampling the received signal and performing beamforming on the sampled version, the drift, bulk, expense, and power consumption of analog circuitry are avoided. By beamforming using time delay rather than phase, the beam is truly non-dis ...

  9. Science and Applications of Metameterials to Interceptor Sensors

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: MDA08T009

    The proposed project will develop three actively configurable metamaterial of relevance to both i) MDA’s high-priority and near-term need for stray light testing and diagnosis and ii) the interceptor functions of THAAD, Ascent Phase Interceptors, MKV and Space Systems. Phoebus’s configurable metamaterials aperture arrays will consist of single-layer metallic thin films patterned with light-cha ...

  10. High Powered Laser Diodes for Pump Sources and other BMDS applications

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: MDA09040

    We propose the development of grating coupled surface emitting lasers (GCSELs) based on the GaSb material system. These lasers will operate in the continuous wave mode at temperatures well above room temperature and will offer higher power and efficiency as compared to any current technology. The use of GaSb based materials will insure good thermal stability, high efficiency, and high operating te ...
