  2. Hypergolic Safety Modeling & Simulation

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: MDA07T008

    ACTA Inc. and Los Alamos National Laboratory propose to develop a high fidelity physics based modeling and simulation toolset for use in evaluating the hazards and consequences associated with hypergol fuel accidents for use in missile defense applications. Los Alamos' CartaBlanca multi-physics code will be evaluated to determine its ability to model both small leaks (resulting in ppm toxic relea ...

  3. High-Gain, Wavelength-Agile Compact Coherent and Direct-Detection Receiver for High-Bandwidth Laser Communications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA06019

    Aerius Photonics proposes a new wavelength tunable, optically preamplified receiver called the MEMS Tunable Vertical Cavity Amplified Detector (MT-VCAD). The MT-VCAD is a compact hybrid semiconductor chip device that utilizes an integrated MEMS mirror in conjunction with an amplifying semiconductor resonant cavity and a hybrid PIN detector to selectively amplify and detect different wavelengths of ...

  4. High-Power Vertical Cavity Laser Diode Arrays for Space Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA06020

    Instead of making incremental improvements to the inherent weakness of the laser facet, Aerius Photonics proposes to fabricate space-qualifiable laser pump arrays that eliminate the weakness of the facet altogether by using kilowatt-capable vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs), which use a distributed mirror, effectively decoupling the feedback mirror from the output window. When comp ...

  5. 2-D Optical Preamplifier Pixel Arrays For Near Photon-Counting FLASH LADAR Receivers

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA06013

    Aerius Photonics proposes a 2-D Optical-Preamplifier Pixel Array (OPPA) to provide near photon-counting imaging FLASH LADAR receiver sensitivity with linear-mode operation, full pulse shape discrimination, superior countermeasure immunity, and distinct advantages that improve target discrimination. The approach leverages single pixel receiver programs underway at Aerius. Aerius’ OPPA is an optic ...

  6. Simulated Transient Evolutionary Plume Signature (STEPS)

    SBC: AERO OPTICS, INC.            Topic: MDA05046

    Nonsteady plume signatures can result from transient engine operating conditions (e.g., start-up, shut-down) or evolutionary vehicle flight conditions (acceleration, ascent). Current standard plume signature codes assume constant engine/flight conditions as for a steady engine burn in a ground static test. An advanced simulation capability is proposed that enables time-continuous multi-scale no ...

  7. Maintenance/ Monitoring Support Information Tools

    SBC: Analatom Incorporated            Topic: MDA05060

    The aim of this project is to build a handheld Portable Maintenance Support Tool (PMST) incorporating a Micro Controller Unit providing wireless interface between sensor networks and portable computer data bases for materials management and monitoring. The PMST will further incorporate an open ended sensor platform, with Analatom’s micro-LPR corrosion and hypergolic fuel chemicapacitor sensors ...

  8. Optimization of ABLs Long-Range LADAR Sensor Under Objective Aero-optical Environments

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: MDA06054

    To counter emerging threats of theater ballistic missiles the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has sponsored the development of the Airborne Laser (ABL) system. For the ABL system to defeat multiple targets over the theater of operation it must be capable of accurately tracking multiple targets simultaneously. The Active Ranging System (ARS) plays a critical role in achieving this capability by prov ...
