  1. A Framework for an Optimal and Adaptive BMDS Firing Doctrine

    SBC: CARDINAL SYSTEMS & ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: MDA02017

    The BMDS is being developed as a fully integrated, layered defense capable of defending against all ranges of threats. A critical aspect of this development is an integrated approach to interceptor allocation. A model-based framework for optimizing multi-layer BMDS performance, developing interceptor firing doctrine, and providing for adaptive, real-time interceptor allocation was developed in P ...

  2. LABORATORY INVESTIGATION OF ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS ON VORTEX WAKES

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED IN A STRATIFIED TOW TANK ARE PROPOSED TO CHARACTERIZE VORTEX WAKES UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ATOMOSPHERIC DISTURBANCE. FLOW RESEARCH HAS DEVELOPED INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES FOR STRATIFYING THE FLUID IN THE TANK, GENERATING A CURRENT SHEAR AND CREATING AMBIENTTURBULENCE WITH GOOD CONTROL. SUCH CAPABILITIES WOULD FACILITATE THE ISOLATION OF THE EFFECTS OF THE DISTURBANCE S ...

  3. RESEARCH TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIALS OF ABRASION JET IN TRANSPORT SYSTEMS CONSTRUCTION

    SBC: Fluidyne Corp            Topic: N/A

    HIGH-PRESSURE WATERJET IS ONE OF SEVERAL NEW METHODS FOR CUTTING MATERIALS DEVELOPED DURING THE LAST DECADE. CURRENTLY IT IS USED, AT STATIC WATER PRESSURE UP TO 60,000 PSI, TO CUT A WIDE VARIETY OF SOFT AND MEDIUM-HARD MATERIALS IN FACTORIES; IT HAS BEEN EVALUATED FOR GEOTECHNICAL APPLICATIONS WITH VERY LIMITED SUCCESS. THIS RESEARCH CONCERNS THE USE OF ABRASIVE-ENTRAINED WATERJET FOR CUTTING AND ...

  4. Advanced Scene Generation Techniques

    SBC: KINETICS, INC.            Topic: MDA03003

    Ballistic missile boost phase transients occurring at launch, during flight, and immediately after shutdown generates distinct observable features that can help as well as hinder the defense against these systems. On the positive side, these features provide important intelligence information showing system operational mechanisms and timelines critical for launch detection, system identification, ...

  5. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...

  6. DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION OF SUBSURFACE CORROSION USING IMPROVED MAGNETO-OPTIC/EDDY-CURRENT IMAGING AND IMAGE PROCESSING

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NONDESTRUCTIVE INSPECTION FOR CORROSION IN ALUMINUM AIRCRAFT STRUCTURES OF AGING AIRPLANES HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED RECENTLY USING MAGNETO-OPTIC/EDDY CURRENT IMAGING TECHNOLOGY. THIS TECHNOLOGY WAS DEVELOPED FOR RAPID INSPECTION OF SURFACE BREAKING CRACKS NEAR RIVETS IN ALUMINUM AIRCRAFT ALLOYS, BUT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE CAPABLE OF GENERATING IMAGES OF CORRODED REGIONS AS WELL. DEVELOPMENT OF A CORROS ...

  7. A NEW MAGNETO-OPTIC BASED FLAW IMAGING DEVICE FOR UNDERWATERAPPLICATION

    SBC: Sigma Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS INTENDEDTO DEMONSTRATE THE BASIC FEASIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING AND OPTIMIZING A NEW MAGNETO-OPTIC 'SANDWICH' DEVICE INTENDED FOR DIRECT VISUALIZATION OF FLAWSIN FERROUS MATERIALS (STEEL) IN A MARINE ENVIRONMENT. THE DEVICE IS BASED IN THE PROPERTY OF SOME MAGNETO-OPTIC GARNETFILMS TO ROTATE THE PLANES OF POLARIZATION OF AN INCIDENT, LINEARLY POLARIZED LIGHT WAVE (FARADAY MAGN ...

  8. MINIATURE, RADIATION HARD ACCELEROMETER FOR KINETIC ENERGY VEHICLE

    SBC: Silicon Designs, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    KINETIC-KILL VEHICLES WILL NEED GUIDANCE, NAVIGATION AND CONTROL SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF OPERATING AFTER LONG PERIODS OF TIME IN A HOSTILE RADIATION ENVIRONMENT. COMPONENTS RESISTANT TO BURNOUT CAUSED BY EXPOSURE TO INTENSE LEVELS OF RADIATION MUST ALSO BE SMALL, LIGHT WEIGHT AND LOW-COST. SUITABLE LOW-COST INERTIAL SENSORS--ACCELEROMETERS AND GYROS--AND THE ELECTRONICS NEEDED TO INTERFACE THEM TO MICR ...

  9. Miniature Kill Vehicle Dispense System

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA02037b

    This program is supported by the Lockheed Martin MKV program office. The Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV) missile interceptor system use large numbers of small Kill Vehicle (KV) interceptors launched using a single booster. The MKV interceptors are deployed from the carrier vehicle to intercept and destroy multiple objects in the midcourse phase of the attacking missile's trajectory. The MKV syste ...
