SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: MDA15T001
We propose a novel computational framework for discrimination that incorporates sensor data from observations of the engagement and from kill assessment (KA) that such sensors can provide. The KA information is combined with data from other sensors to improve the discrimination decision and to reduce the probability of correlated shots.

SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC. Topic: MDA13T007
The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of remaining stable under temperature and moisture changes, while isolating the precision optical array from vibrations such as engine noise and air turbulence. By integrating a customizable periodic stack in the bench, vibrations are attenuated more effectively than commercially available mounts. Additionally, the periodic ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic LoadsSBC: KARAGOZIAN & CASE, INC. Topic: MDA16T003
Karagozian & Case, Inc. (K&C) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) will develop a re-usable, cost-effective, and accurate dynamic characterization methodology capable of measuring the dynamic material properties of various materials of interest under very high strain rates. Materials property data for various ductile materials (e.g., steel and aluminum) are required as input to f ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: MDA14T002
Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of failure in microelectronics, which raises reliability concerns for MDA and its system integrators. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a physics based modeling and testing protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditions to stress ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: DTRA16A004
For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: DTRA16A003
Cost-effective application of advanced commercial electronics technologies in DoD space systems requires early development of radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) techniques, and use of simulations is critical to the efficiency of this process. CFDRC has developed an integrated, mixed-mode simulation approach allowing their NanoTCAD device physics simulator to interface with commercial circuit simu ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC Topic: DTRA14B001
Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: Space Micro Inc. Topic: MDA16T005
Space Micro and partner institution Arizona State University propose to design and prototype a Programmable Multi-Frequency Transmitter (PMFT) that is compliant with both the Kill Vehicle Modular Open Architecture (KVMOA) and Space Telecommunications Radio System (STRS) standards. The KVMOA maximizes reuse of components and system designs and reduce total ownership costs. The STRS standard allows ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: MATSYS INC Topic: DTRA16A001
MATSYS proposes to adapt emerging additive manufacturing techniques (so-called 3-D Printing) for use with reactive structural materials and demonstrate this capability to rapidly fabricate reactive case. Our concept incorporates two major manufacturing steps: 3D printing of green compacts from pure Al or Al-based reactive powder blend; and Microwave (MW) sintering of green compacts into net-shaped ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: NANOSD, INC. Topic: DEFOA0001429
NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of EnergyARPA-E
