  1. Programmable Multi-Frequency Transmitter for Missile Communciations

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA16T005

    Improving capabilities of telemetry systems for next generation e.g. (MOKV) missile defense launch vehicles, kill vehicles, and test/target vehicles subsystems can transform operational testing of such systems and has the potential to increase capabilities of systems that rely on radio communications. As these systems, and their test scenarios become get more complex they will require unprecedente ...

  3. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: MDA17T004

    The Ground-Based Interceptor (GBI) missile is the weapon component of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system that consists of a rocket booster and kinetic kill vehicle. Recently, MDA has sought technologies to improve the performance of the booster vehicle (BV). To date, studies have shown that reductions in weight have a direct impact on overall effectiveness. The current proposal aims t ...

  4. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  6. Novel Structure-Preserving Algorithms for Accurate Rocket Trajectory Propagation

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA17T002

    The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...

  10. RF/EO Track Correlation and Characterization (RETC2)

    SBC: ExoAnalytic Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    In order to counter emerging threats from the Middle East and Southeast Asia, the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is acquiring new sensor (e.g. AN/TPY-2 and PTSS type) and weapon technology (SM-3). As these new technologies are fielded, the BMDS's Command, Control, Battle Management and Communication (C2BMC) component must be able to correlate objects between multiple sensors. Inher ...
