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. Multiple Line of Sight Aft-Viewing Spectrometer (MLAVS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16016

    This work addresses the design, development, and testing of a spectral sensor package, which can be inserted in the aft section of a re-entry vehicle (RV) to provide detailed spectral measurements of wakes and plumes. The resulting near-field spectral data will improve our understanding of the basic phenomena that impact performance and observability. Insertion of the package within the RV allows ...

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

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: MDA16016

    Currently, optical measurements available on target plumes and re-entry wakes are collected by air or ground assets which view the wake/plume photons after having been filtered through the atmosphere. Atmospheric transmission removes significant information needed to anchor models that simulate these phenomena. MDA needs innovative approaches to mount a spectrometer on the aft closure of the RV. ...

  3. Fast Running Re-Entry Vehicle (RV) Wake Signature Tools

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA16019

    The flight environment conditions encountered by re-entry vehicles (RVs) and RV associated spent boosters and flight hardware can produce complex wakes that are difficult to model. Under such high dynamic pressure and angle-of-attack (HDAOA) conditions, ablating heat shield material is entrained in the flow in the form of gases and particulates, and reactive chemistry between atmospheric and abla ...

  4. Thermophysical Property Characterization of Decomposing Aerospace Materials

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16021

    Triton Systems proposes to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of a thermophysical characterization system for complex aerospace structures that have been exposed to aerothermal environments. The proposed system is accurate, rapid, non-contact, and minimally destructive. We will assemble and test the components of the system, develop the analysis method and algorithms to process the data, an ...

  5. Thermophysical Property Characterization of Decomposing Aerospace Materials

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA16021

    BlazeTech is pleased to provide a new, innovative approach to determining the decomposition properties of composite materials typically used as thermal protection materials for ascent heating during boost phase and atmospheric heating in re-entry. The rapid and cost-effective methodology is needed for characterizing vehicle signatures and dynamics. The primary concern is for new and evolving mat ...

  6. Multi-Mode AT Sensor

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA10017

    Triton Systems proposes to develop advanced methodologies, for protection of Critical Program Information (CPI) of BMDS assets against exploitation by reverse engineering and tampering through the use of Side Channel Attacks (SCAs) on Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) devices. The proposed methods will be applicable to both current and future hardware. Minimal weight will be added to the syst ...

  7. Database-Driven Discrete Debris Signature Model (4DSM)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA13012

    In this effort, Spectral Sciences, Inc. and subcontractors Corvid Technologies, Inc., Sierra Engineering and Software and MTSI propose to develop the Intercept Discrete Debris Signature Model for Solid Rocket Motors (ID2SM-SRM) toolkit to better predict the time-dependent EO/IR and radar signature for solid-rocket motor (SRM) fuel debris, or chuff. The ID2SM-SRM toolkit will consist of two parts ...

  8. Remediation for Adaptive Missile Planners through Authored Resilience Training (RAMPART)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA15005

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has invested significant resources to develop advanced training tools that help Warfighters defend against missile attacks. While these tools help missile defense planners learn the skills they need to construct defense designs, they use static, scripted scenarios that do not provide the variety and complexity that Warfighters must encounter to construct resilient ...

  9. Solid State High Power Amplifier for Communications

    SBC: INNOWAVE, INC            Topic: MDA15023

    InnoWave Inc. proposes to demonstrate a prototype of a solid state HPA that provides 1000W of output power in a 20-22 GHz band. Our modularized approach utilizes four 250W Bricks combined through a waveguide combiner. Future growth potential to 2000W output power was also demonstrated by extending the power level of the Bricks to 500W. The extended capacity is used to provide reserved capacity tha ...
