  1. Novel Directed Energy Options in Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: MDA09T010

    High power microwave (HPM) sources have been developed over the past few decades for many important DoD missions ranging from electronic warfare to intentional EMI to impulse radar. One important area of development for HPM devices is ballistic missile defense (BMD). HPM systems and techniques may be able to disrupt, damage, or destroy critical elements of adversary ballistic missile systems, re ...

  2. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: Defense Electronics Corporation            Topic: DTRA121002

    Defense Electronics Corporation (DEC) proposes an innovative radiation hardened by design (RHBD) and reliability improvement solution for silicon, III-V compounds (e.g. SiGe, SiC, GaN, InP, GaAs,), carbon nanotubes (CNT), and graphene. The method is based on analyzing chip-partitioned quiescent current signatures associated with failure modes common to these process technologies. Furthermore, the ...

  3. Accurate Scene Generation Including Atmospheric Effects

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: MDA11001

    Accurate synthetic scene generation is a critical capability required to support sensor development, software and hardware in-the-loop testing and pre-flight test analysis. Current \acIR scene generation codes such as \acFLITES and its predecessor \acCHAMP are excellent tools for creating radiometrically accurate IR scenes including targets of various types. These tools, however, do not currentl ...

  4. High power narrow line laser diode system for DPALs

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA11007

    The overall goal of the proposed project is to develop a Volume Bragg Grating (VBG) controlled surface emitting laser for pumping of low pressure Rb vapor laser. This approach will provide dramatic decrease of specific volume of a pumping lase system and, therefore, will dramatically decrease the size of the whole system enabling 100+ kW operating range. The goal of the Phase I project is to demon ...

  5. Solid State Gyroscope for Advanced Interceptors

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: MDA11012

    The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a solid state gyroscope for use in Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) hardware for current and next generation interceptor systems. The gyroscope will operate on the principle of inertial sensing by the manipulation of electron trajectory in a vacuum. Electrons emitted by a diamond cold cathode are attracted with a net directional velocity ...

  8. Acquisition Tracking and Pointing Technologies

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA10005

    ATA proposes to develop, test and deliver an Optical Inertial Reference Unit (OIRU) called the MSTAR Inertial Reference Unit with DRGs (MIRU-D). The MIRU-D will incorporate four ATA ARS-14s and four Boeing MEMS DRGs on the inertially stable side of the MIRU-D. The efforts in Phase II will lay the groundwork for a unit that is both technically superior and ready for flight qualification and manuf ...
