  1. Innovative Designs for Reliable Electro-Explosive Ordnance Devices

    SBC: SYSTEMS ENGINEERING ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: MDA12031

    Missiles, use electro-explosive devices (EEDs) to perform mulitple functions during operation. This effort seeks ways to improve on the EED"s reliability and lower the failure or inadvertent activation rate of these devices. During Phase I, SEA CORP investigated replacing EEDs with commercial off the shelf (COTS) automotive airbag inflators to perform the required pneumatic functions of variou ...

  2. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this project is to develop a novel expander that can increase the efficiency of cryocoolers for IR sensors at very low temperatures and in remote cooling and across gimbal applications. Miniature Thermoacoustic Expanders (MTAE) that employ high energy acoustic waves generated with no moving parts at the cold expander to produce efficient cooling over a wide range of temperatures a ...

  3. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    To provide the Airborne Laser (ABL) precision ranging and 3-D track refinement capability for the next generation active ranging system (NGARS), Voxtel will develop an avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver. Unlike the original ARS, which uses a 10.6 µm CO2 laser, Voxtel’s InGaAs-based ARS receiver is designed for high-speed photon counting between 1.0 – 1.6 µm. Operation in the short-wave infr ...

  4. Enhanced Capability Point Combined Bio and Chem Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: CBD07105

    In this Phase II program, to enable long-standoff-range, small-sized, high-performance, cost-effective LWIR DISC LIDAR systems, a six-element array of 1-mm, segmented HgCdTe avalanche photodiodes (APDs) will be designed, optimized and each APD will be directly coupled to a unique narrow-band cold-filter, with unique spectral bandpass filters

  5. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07037

    The mitigation of mainlobe jamming is essential to missile defense radar performance. Applied Radar is currently investigating distributed aperture and adaptive processing architectures that promise a new generation of advanced radar performance. Our proposed program will research the application of these distributed aperture radar techniques to determine the mainlobe jammer suppression possible w ...

  6. Advanced Phased-Array Module Interconnect Technology

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07036

    The design and development of phased-array radars requires the integration of solid-state components and adequate thermal mitigation within the array lattice constraints. The current trend is towards increasingly planar designs and a reduction in the array depth. The MDA SPEAR program is one example in which a planar T/R “tile” architecture is utilized. System-on-a-chip technologies such as Si ...
