  1. Checklist Execution Software Service (CHESS)

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: MDA13T004

    Many organizations have personnel performing complicated tasks at consoles. In many cases these tasks are defined by checklist procedures, complicated lists of the actions that need to be taken, as well as the readings that show the action was taken correctly. In the past, these checklists have been presented to personnel as paper documents, which have severe limitations and impose significant bu ...

  3. Innovative Polishing Technology for Fabrication of High Performance Epi-ready GaSb Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Antimony containing III-V semiconducting compounds are particularly attractive for the fabrication of a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photo detectors operating in the long wave infrared wavelength (12-32µm) range. The production of epi quality GaSb wafers still remains one of the important problems for rapid commercialization of GaSb devices. In Phase I effort, we ...

  4. Diamond Technology High Temperature Electronics Radiation Hardened Interceptor Communications

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T010

    The goal of this program is to develop high-speed interceptor communications solutions that are hardened to space and nuclear radiation, including high altitude nuclear explosions (HANEs). As part of this program, AET will specifically investigate the use of advanced diamond technology for communications applications. The approach of AET, Inc. is to first identify a communication system architectu ...

  5. Sensor Registration / Sensor Management


    Our proposal supports the development and integration of sensor resource management algorithms in the operational BMDS by developing and modeling new network messages required to enable centralized control of sensors. The current message set on the system does not provide sufficient control to realize the full benefit of sensor resource management algorithms currently developed within MDA. In ou ...

  6. Broadband LWIR C-IHET FPA for Discrimination Seekers


    This Phase I STTR proposes to develop Focal Plane Array (FPA) based on Corrugated-Infrared Hot Electron Transistor (C-IHET) technology as a passive sensor for discrimination seekers. The initial goal of achieving high sensitivity with operating temperature >77K for C-IHET in the 8 - 12 µm LWIR spectral region will be investigated. This IHET effort will be developed in collaboration with the US ...

  7. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further develop IV-VI PbSnSe detectors epitaxially grown on Si substrates. The motivation of fabricating IV-VI detector arrays on Si is based on the following advantages of IV-VI Pb-salt semiconductors. (1) The large dielectric constant helps screen and localize the defect related effects. (2) The epitaxial material on Si is highly uniform, and thus the cutoff ...

  8. Expedited Transition of Propulsion Modeling & Simulation Capability

    SBC: Strategic Insight, Ltd.            Topic: MDA07T009

    Industry needs a high-fidelity propulsion modeling and simulation capability for Insensitive Munitions (IM) hazard analysis in order to quantify the trade space for performance vs. safety. Full-scale testing of large propulsion systems (greater than 20 inch diameter) is too costly and more importantly, not practical due to lack of sufficiently large instrumented test facilities. Currently DoD/OUSD ...

  9. Advanced Data Fusion Using Bayesian Track-Before-Detect

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T003

    We are proposing adding several enhancements to this new version of the Multi-Frame Probabilistic Multi-Hypothesis Tracker (MF-PMHT) in order to ready it for testing in the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) Benchmark and the X-Lab. During this effort a working prototype will be developed that will include multiple models, track management (initiation, deletion, splitting, and merging), covariance c ...
