  1. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  2. Reconfigurable Course-Grain Analog Arrays

    SBC: Triad Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T007

    A radiation hardened via-configurable analog array (RHVCAA) is proposed to provide a rapid prototyping mixed signal platform for implementing radiation hardened and high performance custom analog system designs. In phase I the feasibility of implementing RHVCAAs was investigated. Existing Triad semiconductor VCAA technology was assessed to determine modifications required to comply with radiation ...

  3. Terahertz Signature Modeling for Kill Assessment and Warhead Materials Identification

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: MDA09034

    The physical phenomena that dominates the use of submillimeter (SMM) spectra for the analysis of missile intercepts is the rapid cooling of the post-intercept gas and debris field and its impact on the SMM spectral signatures and post-impact chemistry. It is likely that the initial high temperatures and density will result in a molecular soup that is much more complex than the atomic mixtures tha ...

  4. Multistatic chaotic waveform design for improved missile defense radar systems

    SBC: CAPRARO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09017

    With the advent of new digital receiver exciters it is now feasible to generate innovative waveforms that can adapt rapidly to meet changing environments and scenarios. In order to meet the numerous and diverse objectives of this request for proposal we propose an approach that combines recent advances in the area of radar waveform design based on chaotic systems, multisensor data fusion based on ...

  5. Multistatic signature feature estimation for improved target discrimination

    SBC: CAPRARO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA09028

    In order to successfully identify a lethal object in a ballistic missile launch complex it is important to have a good description (or image) of the interrogated area. Radar’s ability to interrogate and accurately characterize complex target environments is of great importance for missile defense. Large targets and high resolution surveillance radar systems provide multiple raw detection data de ...

  6. Aerodynamic Drag and Lift Characteristics for Irregularly-Shaped Intercept Fragments

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA07016

    Corvid Technologies is pleased to offer this SBIR Phase II proposal. In the proposed effort, we will extend the high-fidelity analysis processes demonstrated during Phase I to generate large-scale, production-quality databases for intercept debris fragments. Our approach utilizes an innovative combination of high-fidelity computational fluid dynamics for a broad range of flow conditions, high-pe ...

  7. Information Assurance

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: MDA09030

    Insider threat has been an increasingly important problem given low employee morale in today’s tight economy and the increasing reliance on third-party software (including COTS components) that are generally only available in machine-code form and are in many cases produced oversees. We believe that a key to addressing the problem of insider threat is the use of powerful program analyses i ...

  8. Antitamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: MDA09009

    A reverse engineer who has the ability to examine software in an off-line lab has an enormous advantage over one who is forced to work “in the field”. In contrast to the software’s intended environment, a reverse engineer can work undetected, and can more easily make use of analysis tools such as debuggers or emulators if they have fine control over the system that is executing ...

  9. Innovative Waveforms and Related Signal Processing for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA09017

    Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc. and Michigan Technological University propose to develop and estimate the performance of innovative adaptive wideband waveforms for missile defense radar applications that are jointly and simultaneously optimized on transmit and receive for realistic operating considerations, optimized for expected target, clutter and jamming spectral support and optimized for c ...

  10. TORC: Modular CMG Technology for Small Satellites

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: MDA08011

    Micro and nano satellites continue to play an increasing role in future military applications. New mission scenarios are driving the need for higher agility and thus for new actuators capable of meeting the higher torque requirements. In Phase 1, Honeybee Robotics developed a mature concept for a high torque, low power CMG-based attitude control actuator called TORC (Tiny Operationally Responsive ...
