  1. A compact, low-drift atomic spin gyroscope for intertial pointing

    SBC: Twinleaf LLC            Topic: MDA10011

    Co-magneometer atomic spin gyroscopes are rapidly progressing towards very high levels of sensitivity. The proposed work focuses on the engineering necessary to fully utilize the fundamental sensitivity of these sensors. In particular, we propose to develop a new probe beam optical system that promises to reduce bias drift significantly. We also seek to extend our existing control system to proper ...

  2. Wideband Scalable Multi-channel Digital Receiver/Exciter (DREX)

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA10028

    The United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is searching for a software-defined multi-channel radar receiver/exciter that would provide improved performance and added flexibility over currently deployed radar systems. In response, MaXentric is proposing a system codenamed ACERR (Advanced Coherent Exciter/Receiver Radar). The ACERR system is composed of a hierarchy of analog front-ends, high-sp ...

  3. Discrimination Damage Assessment

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA05040

    As the BMDS evolves over the next decade, the community will be exposed to a substantially greater amount of data from successful intercepts in all phases of the tiered defense, including boost, mid-course and terminal. In order to perform the necessary battle management, command and control functions, a net of sensors using both active RF sensors supporting the fire control, guidance and navigati ...

  4. Passive Range Estimation from Angle-only Sensor Data (Acq Pointing&Tracking)

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA08050

    The proposed work will extend the studies conducted during Phase I to develop a mature Monocular Passive Ranging capability to enable single EO/IR sensors in a UAV network to determine threat location accurately enough to cue other assets (other UAV sensors, radars, etc). Such a capability is a key enabler for Early Intercept or enhanced C2BMC, since it mitigates stressing requirements for sensor ...

  5. Track Correlation

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA09027

    The key to successful track correlation, and early intercept, is to discriminate between observations of multiple threats, eliminate false tracks, and characterize each threat prior to ingestion of angles-angles data into a tracking filter framework. SciTec"s novel approach to this challenge is to extract features that are available only during the boost phase, fuse these features with track data ...

  6. Development of Fast and Slow Cook-off Mitigation Sensor


    Designed and successfully demonstrated in the laboratory by Mechanical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) during Phase I, the fast and slow cook-off mitigation sensor (FASCOMS) generated sufficient electrical power from the surrounding environment to function a military-standard squib, which can control a thermally initiated venting system (TIVS) on a large solid rocket motor (SRM). The FASCOMS monitored the ...

  7. Enhanced Spacecraft Survivability

    SBC: SENSING STRATEGIES, INC            Topic: MDA09023

    SSI proposes to build a novel suite of sensors coupled with real-time signal processing algorithms to detect, classify and report on these potentially interfering or damaging sources. Our approach addresses the three areas of emphasis stated in the solicitation.

  8. Real Time Monitoring of Natural and Enhanced Space Environments

    SBC: SENSING STRATEGIES, INC            Topic: MDA08015

    Sensing Strategies proposes to build space qualified hardware that implements the design architecture developed under the Phase I effort. The design emphasizes detection and characterization of transient events (optical and non-optical) that may impact satellites carrying out critical MDA missions. Our design uses a multi-channel spectral classification approach with custom amplification and sam ...

  9. Advancing CRAM Producibility


    In this SBIR program, SMI will work with an established producer of radiation hardened CRAM and the originators of CRAM technology to utilize the manufacturing benefits of i) MOCVD processing, ii) advanced active material compositions for CRAMs, and thus, (iii) further optimize CRAMs. In Phase I we will sample produced materials in test structures with device production partner(s), determine poten ...

  10. High-Voltage and High-Frequency Power Switch for Next Generation Transmit Receiver Module Power Supplies

    SBC: UNITED SILICON CARBIDE, INC.            Topic: MDA08029

    In response to SBIR topic MDA08-029, USCI proposes to develop a unique 4H-SiC super-junction lateral JFET (SL-JFET), based on a novel and simple design, to solve all of the remaining problems facing the development of 4H-SiC power switches for resonant high-frequency power converter in radar applications, including the problems of high output coupling capacitance of vertical SiC MOSFETs that lead ...
