  1. Innovative Techniques for Missile Defense

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA04020

    Voxtel, Inc. proposes to optimize the design of a 1.00-µm to 1.55-µm near infrared (NIR) linear mode (LM)HgCdTe avalanche photodiode (APD) array that achieves high gain with nearly no excess noise, so as to achieve high bandwidth (e.g. > 1 GHz) single photon counting laser radar (LADAR) operation. Leveraging the low noise LM avalanche gain and our low noise CMOS LADAR receiver circuitry, we wil ...

  2. The Miniaturized Autonomous Moored Profiler (Mini AMP)

    SBC: Western Environmental Tech. Laboratories            Topic: N03223

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a compact, low power, autonomous, scalable, bottom-up profiling system for long-term (up to 6 months) deployments. This Miniaturized, Autononomous, Moored Profiler (Mini AMP) will contain a suite of environmental sensors, an integrated data control system, and a telemetry unit as a part of a modular, winch-driven profi ...

  3. Integrated Inherent Optical Property Sensor for AUVs

    SBC: Western Environmental Tech. Laboratories            Topic: N04141

    The objective of the proposed work is to design, fabricate, and test an AUV-compatible sensor for determining the fundamental Inherent Optical Properties (IOPs) of seawater: beam attenuation (c), total scattering (b), total absorption (a), and backscattering (bb). The work builds on our recent SBIR success in developing an AUV-compatible beam attenuation meter and backscattering sensor, which hav ...

  4. Radiation Hardness by Design and Integration Production of 8-16 Mega-bit SRAM


    This program will demonstrate at scale, that radiation hardness by design (HBD)of 8-16 Mega-bit SRAM of state-of-the-art (0.25-0.13µm) commercially fabricated CMOS materials with prompt dose hardness targeted to exceed 1E11 Rad(Si)/sec. The Phase I effort showed that MDA strategic needs could be advantageously meet in a commercial fabrication line, thus minimizing cost and leveraging commercial ...

  5. Missile Plume Radar Attenuation and Cross Section

    SBC: Propulsion Science & Technology Inc            Topic: MDA03078

    This program will develop a modern simulation tool to predict RF interactions (attenuation, diffraction, reflection, Doppler and backscatter) with missile exhaust plumes. The tool will be based, in part, on methodologies contained with the currently available PARCS(Plume Attenuated Cross Section) code. PARCS will be upgraded and reconfigured to include a Maxwell's equation solver. A number of li ...

  6. Single Component, Zero Volatile Organic Compound, Chemical Agent Resistant Primer

    SBC: UTILITY DEVELOPMENT CORP            Topic: N03006

    The main objective will be to optimize the environmentally compliant, waterborne primers that were developed and tested during the Phase I program. Phase II research will further optimize and improve the performance of a single component, zero volatile organic compounds (VOC's), chemical agent resistant primer for the exterior surfaces of U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) land and amphibious equipment. UD ...

  7. Sensorless Control of Linear Motors

    SBC: NDI ENGINEERING COMPANY            Topic: N02133

    The objective of Phase II is to take the control algorithm developed in Phase I and actually develop the software necessary to implement the control algorithm and demonstrate the sensorless control system on the Northrop Grumman EMALS Team Subscale Integration Testbed (SSIT) which is a scale model of the Northrop Grumman EMALS Team PDRR System.

  8. Early Launch Detection, Booster Typing, and Kill Assessment Sensor Concepts

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA04022

    We propose to develop a novel aircraft-based sensor system for early launch detection, typing, tracking and kill assessment. In addition to providing enhanced capabilities with respect to current aircraft-based sensors for long range detection over wide areas in clear sky and cloud obscured scenarios, our proposed sensor will provide single sensor altitude estimations and capabilities for Kill As ...

  9. Boost Phase Plume-to-Hardbody Handover

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA04010

    Several plume-hardbody handover algorithms under development by various investigators show promise in simulations for locating the missile body when the body is resolved or approximately the size of a pixel. Several scenarios involving liquid propellant missiles, such as the cases where these threats are observed at moderate to long ranges, and are at near nose-on geometries or large angles of at ...

  10. Secure, high bandwidth telemetry

    SBC: Radio Design Group Inc            Topic: MDA02033

    The development of highly reliable, very high speed telemetry systems is critical for improving the capability of ballistic missile defense (BMD) systems. The objective of this project is to continue the development of telemetry radios based on m-ary variable shift keying (MVSK) technology, which offers more robust performance, exceptional immunity to interference (including intentional jamming), ...
