  1. Innovative Plume Signature Methodology for Low Thrust Propulsion Systems

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA05045

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop validated plume codes for the hydrazine monopropellant thruster; the propulsion system that is being utilized for the Divert Attitude Control system in the kill-vehicles in several MDA sponsored defense systems. In Phase I, PSI demonstrated an approach to developing validated codes for the far-field plumes generated by the interaction of plume speci ...

  2. Missile Intercept Debris Cloud Signature Toolkit

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: BMDO02016

    A successful high-altitude (>100km) missile intercept by a kinetic-energy kill vehicle initiates a complex sequence of events and observable signatures occurring over a wide range of temporal, spatial, and spectral scales. The resultant debris cloud signatures contain highly desirable information on the intercept lethality and warhead contents (nuclear, biological, high explosive, or chemical). T ...

  3. Single-Chip MEMS IMU for Integrated Avionics and Seeker Image Stabilization for the MKV

    SBC: Milli Sensor Systems and Actuators, Inc.            Topic: MDA05019

    A single high-bandwidth MEMS Inertial Measurement Unit can provide data for both guidance and seeker image stabilization functions required for the MKV. The IMU integrates three gyroscopes and five accelerometers on the same chip, including a planar z-gyroscope. The data for each function can be obtained and separated by combining the signals from all the instruments included in the proposed MKV I ...

  4. Composite Case Improvement for Solid Rocket Motor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA06T004

    It is proposed to develop, model, and demonstrate composite case materials with sympathetic responses to slow cookoff. In phase II, the proposed study will focus upon conducting subscale SCO testing on composite case materials and validate a physics based modeling and simulation tool. Subscale motor case dimensions will be analogue to a specific MDA rocket booster.

  5. Algorithms for Discriminator Damage Assessment

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA05040

    Physical Sciences Inc. and its subcontractors, Corvid Technologies, Systems Engineering Group, Inc. and Millennium Engineering and Integration, Inc., propose to develop a technology base that can be exploited to analyze the RF and EO/IR signatures of post impact debris fields resulting from a KW/target engagement to: (1) identify any lethal object that may be present in the debris field, and (2) ...

  6. Low Defect LWIR Substrates by Detached Growth Method

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA05008

    The goal of this program is to extend our Phase I success in growing detached CdZnTe crystals to growth of high quality 51-mm (2-in) diameter crystals as substrates for LWIR sensors. This goal is to be pursued through a strong emphasis on purification of starting materials, experimental identification of the optimal growth conditions, establishment of a science-based reproducible technology , inc ...

  7. Hyperspectral/Multispectral Imaging for Transient Events

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: MDA05004

    The development of a multiband, stand-off detector with both MWIR imaging, hyper-spectral imaging, and ultra-high-resolution, high-speed Fourier transform spectroscopy is proposed. In the Phase I work, a Multiband Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer was invented and demonstrated. In the Phase 2 a high-speed high-resolution Multiband Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer will bed developed and tested to anal ...

  8. Meta-Information Visualization and Processing for C2

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA05058

    We propose to design, develop, and evaluate methods for Meta-Information Visualization and Processing (MVP) for BMD C2. These methods will assist BMD operators in reasoning about large amounts of complex information – a task made more challenging due to meta-information (i.e., qualifiers of information) such as recency, reliability, and pedigree. Under Phase I, we demonstrated the feasibility ...

  9. Highly Reliable, High Power Cryogenic Red Diode Lasers

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: MDA05014

    This Phase II Small Business Innovation Research project will develop a process for producing cryogenic high-efficiency 630 nm diode laser bars, and develop methods of assembling and testing arrays of such bars capable of optically pumping 100 kW level lasers such as the liquid oxygen Air Laser. The availability of such new pump laser arrays will provide risk reduction to DOD for critical technol ...

  10. Quad channel hyperspectral imager for high speed atomic spectral characterization

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA05004

    A novel simultaneous multi-spectral imager will be developed to create a passive means of determining the distribution and quantity of specified metallic spieces within an explosive fireball. Narrowband observations of the spectral lines for select elements is the only passive technique that can be used to make this determination. The ability to quickly determine elemental composition of an expl ...
