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. Innovative designs for reliable Electro-Explosive Ordnance Devices

    SBC: Capco Inc.            Topic: MDA12031

    Through the use of innovative energetic materials, Capco proposes to improve the reliability, shelf life, EMI hardening and performance of EED devices.

  2. Cost Effective, Reliable Service Life Extension Testing of Ordnance Devices

    SBC: M.R.Research            Topic: MDA12033

    The MDA Stockpile Reliability Program for interceptor ordnance devices is deficient because there are not health monitoring and built-in tests of the electronic components and ordnances of such devices that can assess their reliability due to the exposure of such devices to lengthy periods of environmental effects. In order to compensate for these deficiencies a series of reliability engineering l ...

  3. Methodologies for Developing Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: MDA11003

    We propose further developing very large LED arrays for IRSP applications. Our Phase I effort has demonstrated the feasibility of LED arrays of up to 2048x2048 pixels. In this effort, we seek to further increase the resolution of these arrays by developing technologies that will permit smaller pixels and physically larger arrays. We will also work to improve the electrical to optical conversion ef ...

  5. Intelligent Adaptive Needs Characterization for M&S Systems Engineering

    SBC: ISSAC Corp            Topic: MDA11030

    The Elicitor tool developed under this SBIR will significantly reduce the time and manpower necessary to effectively elicit, characterize and analyze stakeholder needs. It will enable effective requirements generation and allocation to appropriate baselines, and it will reduce redundant efforts among the intended uses a system. By design, the tool directly addresses the understood requirement th ...

  6. Sensor Resource Management of IR Assets

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA11011

    Emerging infrared (IR) sensor assets will play a crucial role in creating a robust and flexible Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) because they are more easily deployed in forward-based and/or space-based environments, providing coverage of threats beyond the range of terrestrial sensors, and enabling launch-on-remote or engage-on-remote firing doctrines that extend the range of weapons syste ...

  7. Develop and Demonstrate High Performance Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Advanced Quantum Structures

    SBC: NBN TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA11019

    In this program nBn Technologies proposes to developed new nBn FPAs for long wave IR. This is based on III-V material systems grown in MBE. We will concentrate on material systems that will fit the nBn concept, especially holes transport and passivation free (the barrier used as passivation).The progress for this new material system has been very significant. We have successfully demonstrated that ...

  8. Methodologies for Developing Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: MDA11003

    We have previously demonstrated mid-IR (lambda = 3.6 & #956;m) 512 x 512 LED arrays for infrared scene projection (IRSP). With this Phase I effort we will be laying the ground work for moving these arrays (in Phase II) to 1024 x 1024 and then 2048 x 2048 pixels. The Phase I effort will entail the evaluation, characterization, and comparison of commercially available three and four inch GaSb su ...

  9. Digital Readout Infrared Focal Plane Array

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: MDA11005

    Dual band infrared sensors are important components for future ballistic missile defense systems. Digital readout integrated circuits (DROICs), compared to analog ROIC architectures, allow on-chip processing, increased dynamic range and increased signal to noise ratio. Deep submicron CMOS provides low power digital circuitry with system noise immunity, and when combined with radiation hardening by ...

  10. High Resolution Signal Processing Module for Precision Position Sensors

    SBC: Blue Line Engineering Co.            Topic: MDA11006

    A new generation of position sensors is proposed that will enable dramatic improvements in the performance of fast steering mirrors for both space and airborne platforms. Sensors with resolution of 1 part in 38,000,000 or better and 16 bit accuracy are feasible. This represents a factor of 5 to 10 improvement in jitter suppression relative to the current state-of-the-art for space-qualified hardwa ...
