  2. Advanced Reentry Vehicle and Wake Models

    SBC: GoHypersonic Inc.            Topic: MDA10023

    At hypersonic flow conditions, the flow field around reentry vehicles is ionized, resulting in electro-optical emissions, detectable radar cross-sections, and attenuation of signals transmitted through the plasma. Ablative heat shields may further increase the levels of electrons in the plasma around the hardbody and in the wake. We propose to extend an existing high-fidelity computational fluid d ...

  3. Photonic Multi-Beam Receive-Only Arrays

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA10026

    We propose to define a dynamically reconfigurable photonics-based system to efficiently collect, down-convert, distribute, and selectively combine the return signals from multiple array elements to a set of digital processors. Electronic signals from the array elements will modulate optical carrier signals. With an appropriate choice of optical carrier signal and photonic architecture, the signals ...

  8. Solid State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Phase I proposes to demonstrate an easy-to-operate, inexpensive room temperature neutron detector based on boron-doped diamond. The detector would produce an immediate signal related to low-level neutron irradiation. The concept exploits the high neutron absorption cross section of B-10, which results in excellent sensitivity. The charge carriers generated in the diamond by a neutron absorption ev ...
