Abstract
Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes the development of the electronics subsystem for a new Optical Inertial Reference Unit (OIRU) titled the Space Qualified MSTAR Inertial Reference Unit (MIRU-SQ). The components and functions of an OIRU can be easily split between the stable platform and electronics subsystem. Because of the expensive nature of space qualified design, purchasing, and testing, ATA proposes for this SBIR project to focus on the electronics subsystem design of the MIRU-SQ. The electronics subsystem (also sometimes called the ECU or electronics control unit) contains the analog and digital electronic components, power conditioning and distribution, processing unit(s), and laser source. The stable platform design effort is being proposed under solicitation topic MDA10-005. ATA"s proposed advancement to the current state-of-the-art is critical for achieving the Missile Defense Agency"s (MDA) acquisition, tracking, and pointing (ATP) goals, because, to date, no small and fully integrated OIRU has been designed or built for space applications. Given our more than 10 years of experience in developing one-of-a-kind OIRUs and 35 years focused on precision, sensing, measurement, and controls, ATA is uniquely qualified to deliver the innovations necessary for successful design and development of this critical element for meeting MDA"s needs.
