  1. Application of RSM and Optimization to Plume Signature Analysis

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA04033

    We propose using response surface methodology (RSM) as a tool to better understand the effects of engine design parameters and operating conditions on plume signature, and to improve signature predictions through optimized selection of analysis inputs. Often rocket engine operating conditions and design variables are not well known, either because the systems being simulated are foreign, or beca ...

  2. Li-Air Cells with Ensured Safety and Prolonged Shelf-Life Using an Oxygen Selective Membrane Cathode

    SBC: US NANOCORP, INC.            Topic: MDA04001

    High performance lightweight energy production and storage technologies are needed to supplement or service as the primary power systems for high altitude airships in order to sustain long-term flight schedules. To address MDA~{!/~}s needs, US Nanocorp proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating a Li-air battery with a special air electrode for lightweight power source application with ...

  4. High-Performance Geiger Mode 1.06 micron APD Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA03088

    In this Phase II SBIR program, Voxtel will design, manufacture, and test a 32 by 32 element, 30-micron pitch, 1064-nm optimized Geiger Mode (GM) avalanche photodiode (APD) array. The array will be electrically and optically characterized and will be tested for total dose radiation performance. The innovation is significant in that there currently are no APD/ROIC focal plane assemblies that have a ...

  5. Optical Sensor for Tracking and Discrimination of Multiple Targets

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04068

    In this Phase I SBIR program, Voxtel, Inc. proposes to develop a novel focal plane technology aimed at enhancing the passive and active ground-based, deep space surveillance and tracking of multiple targets in real-time. To increase the performance and functionality of tracking focal plane arrays, we have designed a monolithic, deep-depletion, SOI CMOS imager, with low noise. On-chip functions inc ...

  6. Innovative Techniques for Missile Defense

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04020

    Voxtel, Inc. proposes to optimize the design of a 1.00-µm to 1.55-µm near infrared (NIR) linear mode (LM)HgCdTe avalanche photodiode (APD) array that achieves high gain with nearly no excess noise, so as to achieve high bandwidth (e.g. > 1 GHz) single photon counting laser radar (LADAR) operation. Leveraging the low noise LM avalanche gain and our low noise CMOS LADAR receiver circuitry, we wil ...

  7. Innovative Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA02021c

    Yardney Technical Products, Inc. (Yardney) proposes a program to develop and test a high-performance, prismatic Lithium-ion battery, and demonstrate the manufacturing capability and reliability of the system for use in government, military and commercial satellite applications. This program will continue from the success of the Phase I program in developing suitable battery monitoring and control ...

  8. Ballistic Missile System Innovative Power Storage Devices

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA04037

    Safety concerns over the susceptibility of large Li-ion cells to thermal runaway during overcharge are one of the problems preventing the commercialization of these cells. New materials will be developed which will prevent thermal runaway and capacity fade from occurring. These will be substituted for a cell component that is believed to be involved in these processes.

  9. Secure, high bandwidth telemetry

    SBC: Radio Design Group Inc            Topic: MDA02033

    The development of highly reliable, very high speed telemetry systems is critical for improving the capability of ballistic missile defense (BMD) systems. The objective of this project is to continue the development of telemetry radios based on m-ary variable shift keying (MVSK) technology, which offers more robust performance, exceptional immunity to interference (including intentional jamming), ...
