  1. Preimidized Powder Towpregs for Low Cost, High Performance Missile Cases

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA07022

    New missile materials are needed to expand the capability of current air-to-ground missile systems. This expansion of capability dictates the development of lighter weight materials that are capable of short duration exposures to temperatures as high as

  2. Next Generation Gimbal (NGG)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA07008

    A-Tech Corporation, d.b.a. Applied Technology Associates (ATA), is innovating the design and mechanizations of space gimbals and their electronics and pointing controls. This new paradigm for a gimbal design is denoted the Next Generation Gimbal (NGG) and yields a gimbal system that is lighter, uses less power, and exhibits better performance. The technology innovations that will be exploited in c ...

  3. DRG/ARS Single-Axis Sensor (DASS)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA07008

    Proposed Missile Defense Agency (MDA) systems, such as the Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS), require high precision gyroscopes for high-resolution Line of Sight (LOS) stabilization, inertial attitude knowledge (IAK), and other high accuracy, space-based acquisition, pointing and tracking (APT) systems. To achieve these mission objectives, MDA is very interested in the development of c ...

  4. Space Qualified, Fast Steering Mirror (SQ_FSM)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA08011

    Many fast steering mirrors (FSM) have been developed over the years, but there has never been one specifically designed for long-term operation in a high radiation, cryogenic space environment. The Missile Defense Agency (MDA), to support the continuing development of the Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS), is seeking the development of this mirror to support future high-resolution line ...

  5. Compact High Power Microwave Payloads

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: MDA08047

    The overall objective of this proposal is to develop the necessary components and to design and build a compact pulsed power system for the Missile Defense Agency that will produce little or no debris when activated. In particular, the energy requirements for the HPM payload appear to require an explosive-driven magnetic flux compression generator or one of it derivatives to provide the energy re ...

  6. Sentient Connectors for Enhanced, Integration, Test, and Mission Assurance

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: MDA08001

    The MDA SBIR organization encourages exploiting of technologies to meet critical requirements. MSI, working with Deutsch, a leading connector manufacturer, has developed a new mil-spec electrical cabling connector with an integral electronics suite called the “Sentient Connector”, made with fiber composites. In a 2007 MDA SBIR MSI engineers developed and demonstrated a software application t ...

  7. Advanced LADAR Modeling

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: MDA08051

    The Airborne Laser (ABL) program has a need to evaluate the potential performance trade-offs for different Laser Ranger (or LADAR) systems, to measure the size, trajectory and plume characteristics of ballistic missiles at long ranges. The program office will need to independently examine, during the procurement evaluation process, the predicted performance of various proposed LADAR system config ...

  8. Defect Mapping of Wafers for Increasing Yield and Operability of Infrared Focal Plane Arrays


    Yields and operability of high performance infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs), particularly those fabricated in HgCdTe, are severely impacted by material defects introduced during growth and/or processing. Amethyst Wafer Mapping (AWM) is a materials characterization technology which when fully developed will provide FPA manufacturers a critical new tool with which to effect remediation or elimi ...

  9. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

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

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...

  10. Embedded Sensors via Laser Engineered Net Shaping

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optomec Design Company proposes to use Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENSTM), a Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) technology currently under development at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), as a new method for integrating instrumentation (e.g., embedded sensors) into metal structural components. SNL has demonstrated the ability of the LENSTM technology to produce near net shape stainles ...
