  1. Modeling of the Attenuation Effects of the Ionosphere and Troposphere for Radio Frequency Application

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA16008

    Current environment models employed in MDA simulations are, in general, not coordinated to present a globally consistent environment picture and can be based on functions that have not been updated to take advantage of the environment models and databases that have become freely available in the information age. In contrast, radar atmospheric effects models whose behavior is derived from globally ...

  2. Thermophysical Property Characterization of Decomposing Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Integration Innovation, Inc.            Topic: MDA16021

    Under Phase-I of MDA SBIR 16.3-021, i3 demonstrated a new time-efficient technique, the i3 Transient Decomposition Method (TDM), for generating statistically-based material response models that predict the decomposition process that thermal protection system materials undergo when exposed to severe aerothermal heating environments. The i3 TDM is an enabling technology for MDA and other agencies th ...

  3. Fine Powder Cathode and Separator Binder Characterization for Thermal Batteries

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: MDA16T001

    Fine powder thermal battery cathode materials can exhibit challenging flow properties which makes processing with automated presses difficult.Granulating these powders can substantially improve flow properties and reduce the tendency for powder segregation during handling and pressing operations.Additionally, the properties of MgO that lead to good performance in thermal battery separators are not ...

  4. An Advanced High-g Spherical Seeker Gimbal Proposal

    SBC: CRM Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA17006

    CRM Solutions, Inc proposes to develop a robust, lightweight, low cost spherical seeker gimbal capable of withstanding high omnidirectional acceleration, random vibration, and shock environments. Gimbal designs progressively become more complex and costly as incremental improvements are sought on existing design approaches. The proposed design is a radical departure from the current state-of-the-a ...

  5. Highly Vectorable, Multi-Pulse Rocket Motor Nozzle to Enhance Maneuverability of Advanced Interceptors

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA17008

    Fielding of advanced missile defense interceptors is strongly dependent upon innovative materials, processes and technologies. One potential area of performance improvement is the nozzle throat of axial thrust systems. An erosion-resistant nozzle throat enables maximum motor efficiency, thereby increasing specific impulse. Tungsten (W) and tantalum carbide (TaC) based materials are being considere ...

  6. Additively Manufactured Lightweight Aluminum Structures for Future Interceptors

    SBC: ASRC Federal Astronautics, LLC            Topic: MDA18006

    The selective laser melting (SLM) of Scalmalloy is proposed for the manufacture of lightweight components on futures interceptor and kill vehicle architectures. Scalmalloy powder has been developed specifically for additive manufacturing (AM) by Airbus APWorks, and has properties that are comparable to 7075-T6 aluminum. Phase I efforts will include a trade study demonstrate that an AM Scalmalloy s ...

  7. Vulnerability Analysis for Systems Security Technology (VASST)

    SBC: NOETIC STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA07039

    VASST seeks to secure large systems, overcoming challenges arising from size and scale, vulnerability analysis, and cyber and physical integration.It defines vulnerabilities at the component level and translates their effects up to the system level.It does this in a two stage process, with the first stage seeing the evaluation of cyber vulnerabilities to produce model effects which are in turn eva ...

  8. Advanced High-g Accelerometers in Small Form Factor for Inertial Measurement Unit Applications

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: MDA17007

    Missile defense applications currently expose inertial measurement units (IMUs) to harsh acceleration, shock, and vibration environments. Furthermore, as missile defense systems become smaller and more complex, they present tighter constraints on size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), while still requiring high levels of performance in addition to operation through radiation environments. New acc ...

  9. 3D Printed Component Packages for Semiconductor Die

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: MDA17011

    This proposal seeks to develop a 3D printing process to print a 3D package around a bare semiconductor die where the package is tailored to fit the application. When semiconductors are fabricated, they are typically sent to a foreign country for packaging. Within the foreign country, it is possible the part is counterfeited. 3D printing of a component package around a bare die should allow for the ...

  10. Resource Utilization Prediction and Planning for Complex Simulations

    SBC: Archarithms, Inc            Topic: MDA17002

    Develop a capability to predict run time and network resource loading of complex federations of missile defense engineering and/or Hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) simulations, assess scenario features driving resource loading, and predict affected components to warn of un-executable scenario designs, assist configuring Modeling and Simulation (M&S) networks, and support automated batch scheduling.Appr ...
