  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 ...

  3. Fiber-Coupled Array Calibration System for On-Site Tx/Rx-Mode Calibration of Large-Scale Phased Antenna Arrays

    SBC: Opteos, Inc.            Topic: MDA05034

    The goal of this SBIR project is the development, assembly, and functional test of a prototype fiber-coupled diagnostic system for the comprehensive calibration and performance monitoring of large scale phased-antenna arrays. In the proposed calibration system, innovative electro-optic (EO) field sensors will noninvasively monitor the near-field amplitude and phase emanating from an array under ob ...

  4. FPGA-Based Adaptive Digital Beamforming for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: MDA06033

    An FPGA-based solution is proposed for Adaptive Digital Beamforming for missle defense radars. The FPGA implementation speeds up real-time computations and allows for remote retuning of the algorithm after launch. Support Vector Machines (SVMs) ensures reliable performance in adverse conditions. The proposed solution is as an enabling technology for legacy beamforming hardware.

  5. VISION-BASED DECISION SYSTEMS

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A PIPELINE STRATEGY FOR MAN-MACHINE DECISION MODULES HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. IT HAS HIGHER OVERALL DECISION PERFORMANCE THAN THE SINGLE DECISION MODULE STRATEGY, AND IS MORE COMPUTATIONALLY EFFICIENT THAN THE MULTIPLE MODULE APPROACH. IT PROVIDES A FRAMEWORK FOR CONTROLLED CONSTRUCTION OF ORTHOGONAL DECISION MODULES, AND DIFFERS FROM THE MULTIPLE MODULE APPROACH BECAUSE EACH MODULE ONLY OPERATES ON DA ...

  6. MAINTENANCE-AND-VIBRATION-FREE SOLID ELECTROLYTE CRYOGENIC COOLER

    SBC: LONE PEAK ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N/A

    THE COOLING REQUIRED FOR THE PROPER OPERATION OF VARIOUS SENSORS AND INSTRUMENTS IS A KEY PROBLEM IN SPACE-BASED FACILITIES. A NOVEL CONCEPT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT LONE PEAK ENGINEERING BASED ON THE COMPRESSION OF A GAS TO HIGH PRESSURES USING A SOLID ELECTROLYTE COMPRESSOR. RAPID EXPANSION OF THE COMPRESSED GAS (JOULE-THOMSON EFFECT) CAN BE USED TO COOL SPACECRAFT INSTRUMENTS AND EQUIPMENT. SOME O ...
