  3. Ballistic Missile Defense System Innovative Power Storage Devices

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA06026

    The overall objective of the pellet production automation program is to develop alternative methodologies for: 1) precise powder measurement, 2) powder preparation for transfer into the die cavity, 3) uniform powder dispersion. Pellet production is currently a rate limiting step in the production of thermal batteries. The chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of the powders are different e ...

  4. Cloudwall: Intelligent Consequence Management

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: MDA05058

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has a responsibility to provide a capability for notifying government and military officials of the potential consequences of falling debris and the primary and secondary effects of ballistic missile engagements over the United States and coalition territories. The MDA needs advanced consequence mitigation (CM) technologies which provide post-intercept debris fall ...

  5. Foveated Imaging and Spectral Discrimination Sensor

    SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    The Airborne Laser (ABL) is a key component of the US government's overall ballistic missile defense systems. In an operational scenario, the ABL's sensor system will detect and track enemy's boosting missile, determine its position and destroy it with a high energy laser. The ABL's sensor system also identifies the launch location and predicts the impact location, which is communicated to other a ...

  6. Novel Rapid and Low Damage Mechanical Polishing Method for Low Cost and Volume Manufacturing of 100mm SiC Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA06035

    The extremely long and multiple polishing steps represent one of the critical challenges for affordable, volume production of high quality 100 mm SiC wafers. As SiC is relatively chemically inert and mechanically hard, aggressive polishing methods involving very hard particles have been used to achieve high removal rates, but such methods create a high degree of sub-surface damage and scratches. T ...
