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. Modeling Operator Reasoning and Performance for Human-in-Control Simulation (MORPHIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    As the United States makes strides in developing, testing, and deploying missile defense technology, the human element remains core to the integrated, layered ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) architecture. Human operators oversee the command and control at the system, component, and element level across a vast array of networked ground-, sea-, and space-based sensors and interceptors to eff ...

  2. Conformal Multilayered Passivation for Type-II indium arsenide/gallium antimonide Superlattice Mesas

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA14021

    The unique electronic properties of periodically-arranged indium arsenide/gallium antimonide (InAs/GaSb) mesas in the type-II strained layer superlattices (SLS) make them a superior alternative to the conventional HgCdTe sensors for longwave infrared focal plane array (LWIR FPA) detectors. However, despite the highly promising quantum structures of SLS, its performance is currently limited by high ...

  3. Standardized Atmosphere Generator (SAG) for Inline Environment Generation

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16003

    We intend to dramatically improve the performance of the Standardized Atmosphere Generator (SAG), an environmental background model used to characterize the atmospheric state. SAG combines multiple empirical models, including NRL-MSISE-00, URAP, NRL climatology, AFGL atmospheric profiles, SNOE databases, the International Reference Ionosphere, and photochemical and empirical models developed by S ...

  4. Database and Numerical Procedures for Extending the Spectral Range Of Plume Signature Codes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16004

    Over many data collection campaigns, a large number of propulsion related signature events have been observed across an extended range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The current suite of plume modeling tools contains the basic framework for flowfield and signature generation, but lacks the underlying physical mechanisms and supporting property databases to properly account for alternate waveband ...

  5. Ground-based Characterization of High Altitude Plume-Signature Phenomenology to Advance the Capabilities of SOCRATES-P

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: MDA16004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to utilize a ground-based simulation facility based upon its patented FAST technology to obtain critical data necessary to validate and extend the capabilities of the MDAs high altitude plume code: SOCRATES-P. Far-field plume signatures arise from the hyperthermal interaction of rocket plume effluent with the atmosphere at altitudes greater than 100 km. In P ...

  6. Modeling the Effects of RF Attenuation in the Troposphere and Ionosphere (MODERATION)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA16008

    The modeling & simulation (M&S) tools currently used by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to simulate radiofrequency (RF) propagation effects on ballistic missile defense (BMD) radar performance produce medium-to-high fidelity results. However, these tools do not incorporate all relevant RF propagation phenomena, assess propagation effects on radar system performance, or support real-time simulatio ...

  7. Vis/IR Atmospheric Tool (VISIRAT)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16009

    MDA Model and Simulation capabilities include Core Truth models capable of simulating all physics governing missile detection, tracking and intercept events. A key component of the simulation tools is an accurate and fast atmospheric radiation model to describe the target signal propagation through the atmosphere to the sensor. Such a model should be designed to readily interface with existing sc ...

  8. Radiation Hardened Interceptor Seeker Sensor Technologies

    SBC: Truventic LLC            Topic: MDA16011

    We propose a means of mitigating the effects of radiation damage in long-wave infrared photo-detectors for interceptor systems in near-Earth orbit. Specifically, minority carrier transport in radiation-damaged InAs/GaSb strained-layer superlattice nBn photo detectors will be electrically manipulated to restore photo-detector quantum efficiency after gamma radiation. The method is real-time, remot ...

  9. Transform-Domain Mechanization for Software-Based Enhancement of Inertial Navigation Performance

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: MDA16012

    QuNav proposes to develop a TRansform-domain INS Mechanization and Algorithmic Correction (TRIMAC) in order to improve the accuracy of inertial navigation in the absence of external aids. TRIMAC will implement a transform-domain INS mechanization, which uses an exact analytical solution of underlying inertial differential equations (as opposed to traditionally applied numerical approximations) thu ...
