  1. High-Temperature, Lightweight, Rad-Hard Silicon Carbide (SiC) DC/DC Converters for Missile Defense Satellite Power Management and Distribution Systems

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: MDA06017

    Power electronic converters are essential in every MDA vehicle, with use in critical systems ranging from electric power management applications, to power distribution, to on-board servo motor/actuator drivers. Advancing state-of-the-art power electronics technologies through the use of SiC semiconductors will produce significant savings across the board in almost all areas of MDA power management ...

  2. Multiband Infrared Focal Plane Array for Seeker Applications

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: MDA06016

    Improved interceptor seeker capability to detect, identify, and discriminate re-entry vehicles (RV’s) from countermeasures at distances of hundreds of kilometers is critical for missile defense. Development of an advanced infrared seeker combining high-spatial resolution with multiband detection for spectral discrimination is desired for material identification and RV discrimination. The challen ...

  3. Multi-Classifier Target Identification (MCTID)

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: MDA05057

    Target identification for the boost and early ascent (BEA) phase, and the midcourse (MC) phase is one of the most challenging problems for the BMDS. The Multi-Classifier Target Identification project employs two synergistic classifier techniques - a probabilistic Bayesian Classifier and a deterministic Topological Classifier – to develop target classifications using weighted target features. Th ...

  4. Cost Modeling Interoperability & Integration within the Model-Based Enterprise

    SBC: COSTVISION            Topic: MDA06029

    Defense acquisition programs suffer from cost escalation due to the inability to accurately estimate costs up front and to predict the cost impact of changes. In this program, we will work with several leading MDA manufacturers to define the requirements for a costing framework integrated with their engineering and business software infrastructure. The framework will facilitate the establishm ...

  7. Hypergolic Chemical Leak Detector


    Hydrazines, nitrogen oxides, and other highly reactive compounds are extensively used as missile propellants. The toxic nature of these substances requires careful monitoring over long periods to ensure safety of personnel particularly during mobilization after prolonged storage. Detecting chemical leaks may also prevent critical system failures within the missiles. Currently, there are no sens ...

  8. Near Atmosphere Plasma Processing Application of Anti-Tamper Coatings

    SBC: Engineered Coatings, Inc.            Topic: MDA06051

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has issued a directive to protect, by application of anti-tamper (AT) coatings, Critical Program Information (CPI) from unintentional transfer on MDA acquisition and associated technical programs. The mission is to deter the reverse engineering and exploitation of our military’s critical technology. Engineered Coatings Inc., with Southwest Research Institute, a ...

  9. Near-Pixel Signal Processing to Improve Next-Generation Interceptor

    SBC: HYPERACUITY SYSTEMS            Topic: MDA06011

    A vision system based on an insect compound eye is ideal for minimizing size of the vision system but it also offers virtually unlimited field of view with orders of magnitude increase in processing speed over digital camera based systems, because it eliminates the need for frame-rate sampling or even capture and movement of discreet cinematographic frames to a memory space for subsequent digital ...
