  1. Debris Assessment from Spectrally Diverse Sensors and Air Sample to Aid Post-Intercept Weapons Typing

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA07044

    A critical need for the ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) is the determination of the warhead type contained within the intercepted threat. Knowledge of warhead type is essential for effective consequence mitigation and determining the National Command Authority response to the threat. Since missile defense threat scenarios include attacks on theater assets and our allies, the BMDS architec ...

  2. Computer Network Defense (CND) Technologies

    SBC: MULVAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA06001

    Recent preliminary research results have shown, (a) that misconfiguration bugs are an important source of vulnerability in enterprise network and software installations, and (b) how it may be possible to construct practical and useful tools that cyber security managers can use to analyze the security of their enterprise network and software configurations. This rsearch prototype analyzes the curre ...

  3. Simulation Tool to Intercept Multiple Missiles Employing Quick and Random Evasive Flight Path


    This proposal is for the development of a versatile, computationally-efficient simulation tool for integrating flight path data from missile interceptors and analyzing defensive missile scenarios. The simulation tool will provide a user-friendly platform for design and testing of cooperative missile-interception techniques. We also propose to develop innovative cooperative control algorithms for ...

  4. Radiation Hard Non-Volatile Solid Electrolyte Memory


    Of high importance for various computing applications for aerospace and military components are memory devices that retain their memory state when no power is applied, and retain their memory state in a radiation environment. Under these conditions, nonvolatile memory devices based on standard silicon technology are prone to Single Event Upsets (SEU) and “latch up” failures. Typically, these ...

  5. Lightweight, Corrosion Resistant Valve Materials

    SBC: Utility Development Corporation            Topic: MDA06055

    The main objective will be to improve the reliability and reduce the overall system weight for the numerous currently pneumatically actuated flight qualified valves used by the Airborne Laser (ABL) program. Important steps in successfully achieving the main objective will be UDC’S formulation, fabrication and evaluation of lightweight and chemical resistant composites that can easily b ...

  7. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Recent and emerging technologies, such as a 3-D LADAR tracker with precise target detection, tracking, and aimpoint imaging could make significant gains for ABL’s capabilities. Solid state avalanche photodiodes (APDs) are a rugged, fully-monolithic detector technology well suited for LADAR focal plane arrays (FPAs). In the past, Geiger mode APD operation has been preferred for tasks requiring se ...

  9. Discrimination Damage Assessment

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA05040

    As the BMDS evolves over the next decade, the community will be exposed to a substantially greater amount of data from successful intercepts in all phases of the tiered defense, including boost, mid-course and terminal. In order to perform the necessary battle management, command and control functions, a net of sensors using both active RF sensors supporting the fire control, guidance and navigati ...

  10. Developing New Insensitive Munitions Packaging Solutions for Missile Defense


    Driven partly by a succession of catastrophic accidents, the U.S. armed services began insensitive munitions (IM) technology development some time ago. However, most of these efforts to date, including new packaging technologies, have focused on tactical applications such as bombs, small missiles, and tank ammunition, and have effectively left the large solid-fueled rocket IM state-of-the-art dan ...
