  1. Physics-Enhanced Navigators for Un-Aided Inertial Measurement Units

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16012

    Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc. (IS4S), with the Auburn University GPS and Vehicle Dynamics Lab (AU-Gavlab), will develop four complementary physics-enhanced navigation estimation algorithms. The Model-Based navigator combines the IMU measurements and actuator commands with a vehicle model. The Constraint-Based navigator applies artificial measurements during partially predictable periods o ...

  2. Aft Looking Spectrometer for Plume Characterization and Waking on Re-entry

    SBC: Nou Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16016

    nou Systems, Inc. (nSI) proposes the analysis and design of aft facing spectrometer concepts that will be incorporated on future flight tests to observe the chemical species in the plume and wake region of the flow field. The overreaching objective of this proposal is to collect data to improve the current wake/plume models and expand our knowledge of the wake/plume species and the underlying chem ...

  3. Sub-Scale Fly Along Sensor Package

    SBC: Nou Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16017

    nou Systems (nSI) proposes the Sub-scale Low Observable Fly Along Sensor Package (SOLO FASP), a low Radar Cross Section (RCS), low Infrared (IR) signature, sensor platform for use in BMDS flight tests. SOLO FASP will utilize open architecture components for integration of multiple sensor packages within the same form factor, software defined radio for telemetry, reaction wheels for pointing, and s ...

  4. Optical Signature Modeling of Transmissive Materials

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA16018

    The purpose of this effort is to demonstrate the viability of algorithms for calculating the temperatures and optical (visible and infrared) signatures of objects (e.g., targets) containing transmissive and partially transmissive materials. Industry-standard codes such as the Optical Signatures Code (OSC) and OPTISIG assume that all materials are opaque, which can lead to substantial errors in the ...

  5. Optical Signature Modeling of Transmissive Materials

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA16018

    Missile Defense Agency (MDA) relies on industry standard software such as Optical Signatures Code (OSC) to compute the visible and infrared signatures of threats, targets, and related objects. These models are critical for systems engineering studies, tracking and discrimination algorithm development, and proper stimulation of hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) and software-in-the-loop (SWIL) testing fo ...

  6. Thermophysical Property Characterization of Decomposing Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA16021

    An innovative concept for measuring thermophysical properties of continuously decomposing materials is proposed. This has not been previously accomplished. The properties of interest include: mass loss, sensible and latent specific heat, thermal diffusivity, thermal conductivity, thermal expansion and structural strength. A Thermogravimetric Analyzer (TGA) measures mass loss, other measurement ins ...

  7. Thermophysical Property Characterization of Decomposing Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Integration Innovation, Inc.            Topic: MDA16021

    i3 proposes to develop and implement a new time-efficient technique for generating statistically-based material response models that predict the decomposition process (pyrolisizing /charring) that thermal protection system materials undergo when exposed to severe aerothermal heating environments.The proposed material response design process integrates the use of novel test and evaluation (T&E) met ...

  9. Techniques for Anchoring Debris Models

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA11042

    IERUS is suggesting a program to test a (fuel) liquid engine, and modify the engine parameters to vary test target signatures. Accurate representations of these signatures in terms of spectral profile and magnitude is important to full system level testing. Approved for Public Release | 17-MDA-9219 (31 May 17)

  10. Techniques for Anchoring Debris Models

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA11042

    Target vehicles are designed to be threat representative in the signatures space. While traditional threat fidelity efforts have focused on the mockup for the lethal object and intentional countermeasures, the launch vehicle stages can often have significant impact on the classification and discrimination problem. IERUS is suggesting a program to test a (fuel) liquid engine, and modify the engin ...
