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. CZT Substrates for Improved MCT Detector Performance

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA09022

    CapeSym has developed a process for growth of high quality Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) substrates used in the fabrication of Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (IRFPAs). CapeSym proposes to produce substrates suitable for fabrication of IRFPAs by the molecular beam expitaxy (MBE) method. The fabricated devices will be tested and the results will be used to improve the c ...

  2. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors (SRMs) as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity. In Phase I, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging processes of composite and double base pr ...

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

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA13012

    Spectral Sciences, Inc., and subcontractors Corvid Technologies, Inc., and Busek Co., Inc. propose a Database-Driven Discrete Debris Signature Model (4DSM) for signature estimates of discrete post-intercept debris (PID) and solid-rocket motor (SRM) debris. The 4DSM software tool is designed to post-process first-principles code (FPC) outputs. The tool will use a validated debris-properties datab ...

  4. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    In our Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF) project, we will model the entire multi-sensor fusion process as a probabilistic model and reason about the different design and algorithmic decisions that can be made by system engineers. This fusion model will use standard fusion system representations and ideas from statistical relational learning field to create flexibl ...

  7. Chemical and Laser Damage Resistant, High Performance AR Microstructures For DPALs

    SBC: TELAZTEC LLC            Topic: MDA11008

    Compact, efficient, mega-watt power level lasers are being developed by the MDA for the mission of destroying targets over a range of many hundreds of kilometers. A candidate laser technology with the promise of meeting this mission goal is based on alkali gas that is optically pumped by multiple, electrically driven diode lasers. One current problem limiting the potential operational lifetime o ...

  8. Corrosion-Resistant Anti-reflection (AR) Coating of High Energy Alkali Laser Components Using Refractory Materials

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA12016

    Realization of high-performance compact lasers will require the development of substrates and advancements in optical coatings that can withstand the harsh environments of corrosive gases, high temperatures, and high energy densities. Toward this end we intend to undertake the development of novel optical coatings that will simultaneously provide the necessary protection and maintain the optical ...

  9. Optimizing Weapons System and Sensor Pairing Through Efficient Binary Polynomial Optimization

    SBC: DYNAMIC IDEAS LLC            Topic: MDA12004

    Exact formulations of weapon-to-threat assignment problems have long been identified as binary polynomial optimization problems which are theoretically difficult (Non-deterministic polynomial-time-hard or NP-hard), thus previous research for implementation in the area has focused on heuristic solution methods or methods which compromise full formulation with limits on assignment. The introduction ...

  10. Ultra-Low Power Sensor for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA12006

    During Phase I, Triton Systems demonstrated proof-of-concept for new methods developed for a near zero power advanced senor to detect X-rays. Triton Systems performed design analysis and limited bench level testing to demonstrate the sensor. During Phase II, Triton Systems will further develop and refine the methods designed in Phase I, and evaluate their effectiveness utilizing relevant prototy ...
