  1. High-Performance Dual-Band MWIR/LWIR Uncooled Imager for ABL IRST Sensors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Agiltron proposes a high-performance dual-band imager for the IRST sensors used in the ABL Wide Area Surveillance System (WASS). To meet the needs of the MDA, the proposed imager will feature simultaneous dual-band MWIR/LWIR operation for increased discrimination capability; megapixel resolution for increased field of view, detection range, and angular resolution; uncooled operation for minimized ...

  2. Very Wide Bandwidth Photonic Adaptive Digital Beamformer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA06033

    An innovative concept for a scalable Adaptive Digital Beamformer that can be applied to the full range of MDA radars is proposed. The concept is photonics based and will support transmit/receive applications over the .1 to 20 ghz band. The design provides a digitally controlled True Time Delay Beamformer effectively adaptive to a phased array in any portion of the spectral coverage. Fine pointing ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Low Thermal Resistance RF Devices

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA05034

    The aim of this program is to produce a commercial suite of simulators for design-stage thermal analysis of high power RF devices. The simulators will be easy-to use thermal analysis tools for exploratory as well as detailed analysis of FETs and MMICs. Two complementary FET simulators and one MMIC simulator will be produced as part of this program.

  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. Arbitrage Look-ahead Agents for Market-based Optimization (ALAMO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA06009

    Missile defense takes place in an unpredictable, real-time environment and thus requires an adaptive approach to optimization that dynamically allocates sensors and their supporting resources in response to changing goals and constraints. Here, we propose a system of Arbitrage Look-ahead Agents for Market-based Optimization (ALAMO) to meet the challenge of this real-time resource allocation proble ...

  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. Advanced Space Power Technologies

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: MDA06017

    Eikos Inc. proposes to develop composite carbon nanotube-metal oxide transparent electrodes to enhance the efficiency of three junction solar cells. Eikos leads the world in developing transparent conductive electodes based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Eikos also has demonstrated that the performance of nanotube electrodes can be tuned by using apprpriate binders to stabilize the nanotube network. ...
