  1. Active Sensor Technologies for Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: MDA10016

    We propose here a low-SWAP, multi-sensor system to exploit a variety of complementary signal phenomena to meet the complex missile defense mission. In the proposed effort, the system will be designed, fabricated, and tested in a mission-relevant field demonstration. A technical development road map will also be developed under this effort to chart a course from the initial prototype system to an ...

  5. Advanced Isolation and Motion Control for RLV Payloads

    SBC: CSA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Payload planners of earth imaging systems have always struggled with the fundamental problem of designing a delicate, pointing system that survives the severe vibro-acoustic environments of launch. The standard solution is to mass load the spacecraft busand lock down the pointing stage during launch. However, the parasitic mass and unwanted complexity are unacceptable for future RLV systems. C ...

  10. Affordable Active Phased Array Sensor Systems-Digital Receiver

    SBC: Microwave Packaging Technology, Inc.            Topic: A11074

    The US Department of Defense (DoD) procures phased arrays and deploys them on multiple platforms. A key component in these systems is the digital receiver. They enable tracking of multiple simultaneous targets such as missile launch vehicles, payloads, and re-entry vehicles (to name a few). The cost of these components limits their wide spread deployment. More importantly, existing digital rec ...
