Research Institution
Systima is proposing a Phase II SBIR program for a thermally triggered IM compliance initiation device for use in a Thermally Initiated Venting System (TIVS). Systima has established industry partnerships of the most capable expertise in the nation for missile system integration, rocket motor manufacturing, and energetic systems to develop a Thermally Initiated Venting System (TIVS) for the interceptors of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). During Phase II, Systima will mature its thermal initiation device that activates an energetic case venting system in the event of either Slow or Fast Cook-off conditions per MIL-STD-2105C and NATO STANAG 4382. Systima has designed the thermal sensor and initiator device to comply with MIL-STD-1901A and will perform demonstration testing to verify all performance characteristics at the component (e.g. Thermal Sensor), sub-system (e.g. MIL-STD-1901A Thermal Initiator), and system level (TIVS).
