  1. Furazan Ingredient as a Solution for Slow Cook-Off Insensitive Munitions Tests

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07047

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its team member Aerojet, propose to mitigate slow cook-off violence by adding a thermally-decomposing trigger to a propellant formulation to provide a benign ignition mechanism for large diameter SRMs. Physical Sciences and Aerojet have identified a potential furazan replacement for ammonium nitrate (AN) which eliminates the significant problems of AN such as hygro ...

  2. Novel Fragment Aerodynamic Models over Entire Velocity and Altitude Range

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07016

    A novel method is proposed to model the aerodynamic lift and drag coefficients for complex fragment shapes resulting from the impact of Missile Defense Agency (MDA) interceptors with target vehicles. The force coefficients are needed for the entire spectrum of flight velocities and impact altitudes ranging from low-earth orbit to near-ground. Our Phase I approach considers a high altitude model ...

  3. Multi-Functional High Performance IM-Compliant Composite Case for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07047

    It is proposed to develop a multifunctional IM compliant, filament wound composite case for slow cookoff, bullet and fragment impact. In phase I, the proposed investigation will focus upon developing our composite case, conducting slow cookoff tests, and to filament wind one case design to a subscale analog MDA rocket motor. We propose to establish a fabrication technique that will be applicable a ...

  4. Innovative Manufacturing Process Improvements

    SBC: SANSTEK, INC.            Topic: MDA05019

    The objective of the proposed effort is to provide highly integrated MEMS based IMU using a planar IMU device and a combination of novel analog control and readout mechanizations along with an adaptive digital control compensation system in an FPGA. The resulting micro IMU and associated Integrated Avionics Assembly will have the gyro and accelerometer performance and the size, weight, and power t ...

  5. Genetic Algorithm Allocation and Assignment Tool for Missile Defense Battle Management

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA07045

    An increasing number of countries are acquiring nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons together with missile systems that enable them to deliver these weapons beyond their borders. Short response times require effective, efficient planning tools for resource and weapons allocation, assignment, and placement so that these tasks can be executed effectively in a highly stressed environment with ma ...

  6. Ballistic Debris Coherent Discrimination and Modeling

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA06014

    The MDA is interested in developing a coherent debris model for ballistic missile debris, and in developing a pre-screener to eliminate debris from classifier consideration. This debris is composed of staging hardware, deployment hardware, and solid rocket motor (SRM) debris. SRM debris is prevalent in missile systems with SRM final stages. At higher frequencies, debris RCS can be higher than r ...

  7. Stochastic Modeling And Optimal Game-Theoretic Strategies For Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA07031

    The sensor and weapon resource management problem for Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) considering adversary's choice of launch times, aimpoint locations, and countermeasures is a challenging game theory problem. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn, MA and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin MS2 Tactical Systems (LMTS) propose a novel general stochastic game-theoretic approach to the BMD pr ...

  8. UV-IR Robust, Accurate Earthshine and Skyshine (RAES) Model

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA07017

    Target detection, classification and tracking by missile defense sensor systems from post boost phase through mid-course to reentry is affected not only by background contrast but also by the irradiance contributing to the target signature by extended sources including direct and reflected sunshine, earthshine, airglow, moonshine and other celestial sources. The total irradiance on the target from ...

  9. Forecasts for Adaptive Sensor Tasking in the Infrared (FASTIR)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA07033

    Satellite ground imagery from space-based infrared (IR) sensors can be invaluable when monitoring areas of military significance during periods of rapid activity of several hours to days. IR ground imagery is strongly influenced by weather conditions such as cloud cover and water content that can adversely impact surveillance. Predictions of IR image availability and quality during adverse weather ...

  10. Synergistic Radiation Shielding of COTS Electronics for HAENS Compliance(1001-163)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA06018

    Triton Systems, Inc is meeting the needs of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) for reduced weight and higher performance Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) assets. Triton will integrate a synergistic lightweight radiation shielding system to prevent radiation induced upsets in commercial off-the-shelf electronic components exposed to an exoatmospheric nuclear environment, defined by the HAENS ...
