  2. High Performance Cooled Seeker Window

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA17005

    Infrared (IR) windows operating in the environment experienced by endo-atmospheric interceptors are limited in performance by the high heat fluxes, temperatures, and pressures characteristic of these environments. Window temperature can exceed 900 C from exposure to the high heat fluxes and temperatures associated with hypersonic flight. Existing materials are limited by poor mechanical and optica ...

  5. Performance optimized hierarchical microstructure propellant for future small interceptor rocket motors

    SBC: Helicon Chemical Company LLC            Topic: MDA18004

    Future MDA interceptors require advanced propulsion capabilities, with higher performance in smaller, volume-constrained systems. Innovative propellant chemistry is needed to enable substantially greater performance in smaller packages. One factor limiting the maximum performance achievable in modern propellants is the slow ignition and combustion of the propellants metal fuel particles, typically ...
