  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. IM Modeling/Simulation Tool for KEI Dynamic/Thermal Loads Associated with Stage Separation


    Intense dynamic and thermal loads will occur during stage-separation events that are of major concern from both operational and safety viewpoints. The insensitive-munitions (IM) stimuli and thermal/dynamic response associated with such events has received very little attention, yet this is of major concern for the KEI vehicle undergoing Stage 1 to Stage 2 separation. The KEI event is at lower alt ...

  3. Optimal Sensor Scheduling for Ballistic Missile Defense


    Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) has become increasingly complex, as sophisticated and extensive sensors and defense systems have been developed to detect, track, classify and intercept Tactical Ballistic Missiles (TBMs) throughout each phase of their trajectory. These systems include multiple sensors of various types, which must accomplish diverse time-critical tasks that involve multiple moving ...

  4. Ballistic Missile Defense Anti-Tamper Volume Protection

    SBC: Qortek, Inc.            Topic: MDA06052

    The purpose of this Program is to demonstrate an inexpensive thin Multi-threat Detect sensor compatible with die integration, that can provide reliable detect information on multiple kinds of attempts to access information (design or code) contained within security sensitive microelectronics. Although the multi-threat detection sensors are passive (power independent), they can rapidly detect a ra ...

  8. Development of Low Cost Needled C/SiC for TDACS Applications

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA05066

    This Phase II proposal is submitted under topic MD05-066 and continues the develop-ment of low cost, needled C/SiC for throttleable divert and altitude control systems (TDACS). The TDACS is being developed to guide the kinetic weapon of the Navy’s Standard Missile-3 to the target. The throttleable solid rocket motor technology embodied in the TDACS increases the range, standoff distance, and e ...
