  1. Synoptic Approach to Harmonize Discrete Data Streams in Application Development

    SBC: It Works Inc            Topic: 180NH1

    Research conducted in Phase I identified a range of data sources providing vehicle related information to consumers shopping around or interested in knowing more about vehicles. Majority of the commercial data sources focused on vehicle features, new/used/CPO pricing, and vehicles listings. Such data sources lacked safety as their central focus, which is a concern for U.S. Department of Transporta ...

  2. Improved Carbon-Carbon for Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA13025

    A recent flight test of a hypersonic vehicle resulted in failure that was traced to thermostructural damage in the carbon-carbon aeroshell. When the vehicle was exposed to peak thermal gradients, interlaminar shear stresses were created that caused external plies to delaminate. The structural failures caused aerodynamic disturbances that led to vehicle instability. The program proposed here seeks ...

  3. Radio Frequency (RF) Field Sensor for Integrated Circuits (IC)

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA14007

    Weapons systems managed by the MDA including the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) rely upon the integrity and security of complex Integrated Circuits (ICs) to control their functionality. Adversarial side-channel attacks to ICs greatly compromise this functionality as well as the security of Critical Program Information (CPI) stored in these ICs.Nokomis has definitively demonstrated that mo ...

  5. Beam Train Flexible Structure Control for Airborne/Space-Based Systems

    SBC: BRASHEAR LP            Topic: AF02004

    This effort will investigate jitter reduction mechanisms for primary mirrors of airborne directed energy weapons. The investigation will cover detailed modeling, implementation for active control and a subscale experiment.

  6. 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 ...

  7. 3-D Modeling of Rocket Motor Plumes


    Characteristics of missile plume signature emissions have a great potential to enhance defensive capabilities in a number of important areas related to early (boost-phase) detection and identification of the missile system/rocket motor. Missile defense technologies where plume modeling plays a significant role include: early warning launch detection (ELDT), post launch warning detection; missile t ...

  8. Missile Plume Temporal Intensity Fluctuation Exploitation


    The time-varying plume infra-red (IR) signature modulation provides a marker that allows a plume signal to be discriminated, in frequency space, from a cluttered background. From the perspective of Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD), it provides a novel opportunity for Early Launch Detection & Tracking (ELDT) of threat targets. For BMD-related development of guidance sensors for interceptors, the mod ...

  9. Propulsion Related Missile Phenomena


    This effort entails the modeling of a variety of propulsive related missile phenomena of interest to MDA with an emphasis on lower altitude (h< 70km) problems, as well as on continuum/non-continuum bridging to provide the correct initial conditions for DSMC solutions. Phenomena to be modeled include: post-shutdown fuel venting and motor/nozzle debris expulsion; transient control jet and shutdown/ ...

  10. Integrated Thruster/Valve Seat for Divert Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: DE Technologies, Inc.            Topic: BMDO02006

    High acceleration, low-mass solid divert attitude control systems (SDACS) for missile defense applications employ multiple rhenium thrusters with integrated diverter valve assemblies to control the direction and duration of thrust. These rhenium thrusters, valve seats and valve bodies are expensive and time consuming to fabricate and are the controlling factor for producing a deliverable SDACS un ...
