The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Track Refinement from Off-Nominal Break-Up

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA14003

    To achieve MDAs mission, it is crucial that the BMDS be able to acquire and maintain accurate tracks on objects produced by a missile launch over the lifetime of the threat.Certain missile events, such as break-ups and intercepts, have the potential to adversely affect the quality of situational awareness provided by the BMDS.Therefore, Numerica Corporation proposes an advanced optimization and es ...

  2. Innovative and Modular Open System Radar Algorithm Test Environment

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA14005

    MDA invests millions annually on new radar technologies. However, because it is often difficult to relate theoretical advances to warfighter advantages, MDA is challenged to determine the value of certain investments. A critical need is an evaluation tool that can assess early-development radar algorithms, using consistent metrics, so that promising investments can be quickly differentiated from l ...

  3. BMDS Uncertainty Quantification

    SBC: OptTek Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T007

    Uncertainty quantification (UQ) can be performed with existing MDA M&S tools if efficient algorithms are developed and deployed. OptTek proposes to explore innovative methods and algorithms to 1) quantify output variation from all input uncertainties providing distributional information and extreme value identification, 2) isolate output variation from individual input uncertainties and from input ...

  4. Enhanced Multiple Hypothesis Correlation for Improved System-Level Tracking

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA04121

    MDAs mission is to develop, test, and field an integrated, layered, Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) to defend the United States, its deployed forces, allies, and friends against all ranges of enemy ballistic missiles in all phases of flight.To accomplish this mission, the BMDS incorporates a substantial array of sensors and weapon systems, plus a Command, Control, Battle Management, and Co ...

  5. 3D-Printed Lightweight Optics for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T009

    It is proposed that using additive manufacturing to fabricate a lightweight optic would result in a weight reduction of the optical system, since 3D-printing provides superior flexibility in the geometric design of the lightweight optic. In addition, the conventional approach to lightweight an optic requires machining of mechanically-hard optical substrates such as SiC, which is time-intensive an ...

  6. Enhancement of Ballistic Missile Defense System Level Simulation Operations Through Multi-core Processing

    SBC: ISSAC Corp            Topic: MDA13T003

    The ISSAC Team propose a novel method to encapsulate legacy models and simulations that allows these components to take advantage of modern, multi-core, multi-processor hardware suites. Encapsulating these legacy codes provides 3 primary advantages to deal with complex systems and systems of systems (Air Force, Navy, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA ...

  7. Innovative Technologies for Operationally Responsive Space

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: AF141106

    The 2011 launches of ORS-1and TacSat-4 have demonstrated the feasibility to rapidly deploy spacecraft. These successes and progress on the Modular Space Vehicle, along with standardization (Space Plug and Play Architecture) continue to show promise in a responsive space architecture focused on modularity and reconfigurability. There is a need to enhance the capability of small spacecraft to suppor ...

  8. High Stability Composite Ablative Insulator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA14020

    Ballistic missile defense (BMD) systems make use of carbon cloth - phenolic (CCP) resin composite materials, particularly as ablative insulators in the inlets and throats of rocket motor nozzles. However, CCP exhibits aging through increased moisture content, arising from both water uptake in ambient air and endogenous water generation in the resin as it ages. The presence of water in CCP leads ...

  9. Innovative and Modular Open System Radar Algorithm Test Environment

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA14005

    Numerica proposes an evaluation tool that can assess early-development radar technology concepts, using consistent metrics, so that promising investments can be quickly differentiated from less useful options. In this program Numerica will develop and deliver a BMD radar representative test environment for use in a variety of programs. The tool will provide an open architecture, modular operatin ...

  10. Stable Maneuverable Airborne Thermal Management for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA14016

    i2C Solutions and New Mexico State University (NMSU) propose to develop a Stable Maneuverable AiRborne Thermal Management (SMART) two-phase cold plate designed specifically to interface with laser diode arrays resulting in an exceptionally effective, lightweight and simple thermal management subsystem. The proposed approach will overcome vulnerabilities of current flow boiling schemes to local gr ...
