  2. Conformal Electronics Coating Materials and Processes

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: MDA06051

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to provide a complete conformal coating solution to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). CRG developed a conformal coating under a previous anti-tamper SBIR program. The manufacturing process and proprietary mixing procedures have been developed for this baseline formulation, and independent laboratory testing has produced good results. This formulation ...

  3. Innovative Manufacturing of Hafnium Carbide Insulation Materials

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: MDA05068

    In Phase I, Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG), proposed to fabricate solid rocket motors with increased erosion performance and improved manufacturability by integrating MATECH’s zero-erosion Hafnium Carbide (HfC) insulation system into CRG’s innovative rotomolding manufacturing process. These integrated technologies are primary focused on axial propulsion systems, as rotomolding is best ...

  4. Fail-Safe Thermal Activation Components for Insensitive Munitions

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: MDA05001

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG), proposes the further development of heat-activated pressure venting mechanisms actuated by shape memory polymers (SMP) for meeting insensitive munitions (IM) requirements for ammunition containers and solid rocket motors. SMP composite materials provide the same strength as conventional composites at normal operating temperatures. However, at a threshold a ...

  5. Software Formalisms

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA05051

    EDAptive Computing, Inc. [ECI] team is pleased to submit this Phase II proposal in response to SBIR solicitation number MDA05-051: Software Formalisms. By its assigned mission MDA must develop some of the most complex software systems in the world under the most extreme real-time reliability and correctness constraints imaginable. These systems must work the first time and every time, yet there ...

  6. Sensed ENergy Transient INterrogation ELement (SENTINEL)

    SBC: HIRSCH ENGINEERING & COMMUNICATIONS, INC            Topic: MDA06052

    This is a unique, practical solution to the tampering prevention problem, because even if reverse engineers know exactly how it works - they cannot overcome it. Similar to human DNA typing, SENTINEL checks the electronic power signature that characterizes a volume operating in its environment. Any volume of or individual analog, digital, or RF elements of any system have a unique power signature ...

  7. Distributed Registration with Expectation-maximization and Multiresolution System for BMD

    SBC: MRLETS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA06004

    MRLets Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a suite of algorithms and software for registration of track and report data from IR and radar sensors. The proposed registration system is able to jointly identify correspondence between data from distributed platforms and to estimate sensor bias parameters. The system relies on three technologies to meet the challenges of the project. First, a distri ...

  9. Low Cost Planar Antennas for Phased Array Radars

    SBC: Spectra Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T011

    Spectra Research has teamed with Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) to employ an innovative technique that uses advanced radiator materials and methodologies, such as fragmented aperture arrays, to develop an integrated antenna array that functions as a radar antenna. Many of the design issues and tradeoffs related to phased array radars are driven by the intrinsic generation of a single trans ...

  10. Lightweight Hybrid SRM Shipping Container To Defeat Rocket Propelled Grenade

    SBC: WRIGHT MATERIALS RESEARCH CO.            Topic: MDA06038

    MDA is interested in insensitive munitions (IM) technology that can protect large solid rocket motors (SRM) from impact stimuli including rifles, fragment, and rocket propelled grenades (RPG). Current IM propellants exhibit poor IM characteristics for SRM larger than 12-in in diameter. RPG, rifles, and fragment impact have created safety concerns for large SRM during transportation and storage. A ...
