Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-012
Budget: 05/03/10 - 11/02/10

This proposal provides an innovative solution to reduce the size and mass of a precision regulator used on typical liquid DACS systems. Novel friction-reducing Belleville washer designs and a secondary spring unit keep the regulator compact, simple and low weight while maintaining a +/-5% regulated pressure outlet tolerance. The simple temperatu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-067
Budget: 04/23/07 - 04/23/09

Improving performance, safety, and cost of Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS) is important to future, cost-effective deployed missile defense systems. Bi-propellant liquid propellant DACS achieve the highest specific impulse compared to solid systems, but in limited volume systems, packaging efficiency can limit available total impulse. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-067
Budget: 03/01/06 - 09/02/06

This proposal provides an innovative solution to eliminate the high pressure, cold gas pressure vessel used on typical liquid DACS systems by using gas generated by burning off some of the fuel in the main fuel tank as a mono-propellant. The DACS fuel would be a hydrazine blend such as M-75 to obtain good catalytic performance.
