  1. Multifunctional Applique for Spacecrafts

    SBC: Sensortex            Topic: MDA05T019

    This program will develop an appliqu"¦ based on a multi-layer film which will be conductive as well as possessing good optical properties (low ¦A, high ¦Å). The film will be designed to be highly resistant to the space environment. This white, conductive appliqu"¦ will be easily applied to most external areas of the spacecraft. The appliqu"¦ is expected to have multiple layers, each indiv ...

  2. Full-spectrum Integrated Reaction Evaluation and Synthesis (FIRES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T017

    Highly energetic chemical processes play a central role in many military and commercial applications. For example, spectral emissions from missile plumes, arising from high-velocity chemical interactions of exhaust gases with the atmosphere, are used to detect, track, and identify threat targets. Detailed, quantitative knowledge of the energy-dependent chemical reaction cross sections and rates i ...

  3. Phase I Proposal #B045-014-0221: Target Scene Resolution and Calibration Using Innovative Region Based Active Contour Techniques

    SBC: TECHFINITY, INC.            Topic: MDA04T014

    Given the stressing timelines of KEI, there is a need to quickly and accurately determine the precise location of the physical centroid of a ballistic missile hard body in order to find the desired point of intercept for the kill vehicle. During terminal homing, when the interceptor relies on its IR seeker, there are many events within the seeker field of view (FOV) that can contribute to a failur ...

  4. Low Cost Composite Structure with Integral Radiation Shield for Hardening of EKV Electro-Optics Subsystems

    SBC: Vanguard Composites Group, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T012

    Future Exoatmospheric Interceptor Kill Vehicle (EKV) system upgrades and Kinetic Energy Interceptors (KEI) are expected to require nuclear radiation hardening of electro-optics subsystems. Lightweight, low cost, producible structural radiation shielding is needed to address this EKV and KEI nuclear radiation hardening issues. A phase I program was successfully completed to demonstrate the feasibil ...

  5. Integrated Flight Control Systems for Kinetic Kill Vehicles with Novel Internal Actuators

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA04T003

    New internal actuation technologies and integrated design of guidance-control systems for kinetic kill vehicles are proposed. These actuation technologies can be used for KKV trajectory and attitude control in any speed range, both within and outside the atmosphere. Since the actuators are contained entirely within the airframe geometric envelope, and because no mass expulsion is involved, they of ...

  6. Improved SiC Materials for High Power Electronics

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon has long been the semiconductor of choice for high-voltage power electronic applications. Recently, SiC has attracted attention because SiC is projected to have better performance than silicon. [1] SiC power switching devices have yet to becommercialized, largely due to SiC crystal defects, most notably the device-killing micropipe defect, which does not permit high total current parts t ...

  7. A Tunable Interferometric Random Optical Cross-Switch

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A random access, solid-state, optical cross-switch capable of 770 channel discrimination in the telecommunications C-band is designed and proven as an alternative to current thin-film WDM devices and as a mechanically robust alternative tomicroelectromechanical (MEMS) WDM devices. The device may be used in multiplexing (mux), demultiplexing (demux), or complete cross-switch configurations, and is ...

  8. Novel heterojunction diodes for High Power Electronics

    SBC: VIATRONIX            Topic: N/A

    The wide-bandgap semiconductors GaN and SiC hold great promise for high temperature and highpower electronic devices. This is due to the attractive properties these materials possess, such as wide energy bandgaps, high breakdown fields, high thermalconductivities, and high saturated electron velocities. In addition, GaN and SiC have adequate electron mobilities and can readily be doped n and p ty ...

  9. Phased array antenna for air platforms

    SBC: RST SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the technical approach to a small size, multi-functional, multi-frequency phased array antenna, which would operate at multi-band frequency ranges without the need for switching or reconfiguration. The phased array antenna designwill cover X, Ku, K and Ka-band frequency ranges and will be capable of high volume data transfer in a timely manner between the users. The RF ante ...
