Award List:

Development of High-Fidelity Techniques to Model Impact Flash and Post-Impact Thermal Signature Prediction and Support Kill Assessment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Elvis Dieguez, Principle Investigator
Award Amount: $99,926.00
Abstract:
Initial implementations of the United States missile defense system utilize two primary sensors for kill assessment: RADAR and infra-red (IR) sensors. The post-impact signatures must be accurately modeled to support kill assessment, sensor design, signal processing, and feature extraction. The… More

Recognition of High-Range-Resolution (HRR) Profile Signatures of Moving Ground Targets for Combat Identification (CID)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Elvis Dieguez, Principle Investigator
Award Amount: $148,820.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the advantages of using a Hierarchical Hidden Markov Model for Aided Target Recognition of High Range Resolution (HRR) radar. A Hidden Markov Model (HMM) based technique has been previously shown to provide aided recognition of HRR with high… More

Development of High-Fidelity Techniques to Model Impact Flash and Post-Impact Thermal Signature Prediction and Support Kill Assessment

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Elvis Dieguez, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $649,989.00
Abstract:
Accurate collateral damage assessment is of critical importance for missile defense because determining the likelihood of a successful intercept kill is required for efficient interceptor tasking. This is especially critical for first generation missile defense systems that are likely to only have a… More

Recognition of High-Range-Resolution (HRR) Profile Signatures of Moving Ground Targets for Combat Identification (CID)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Elvis Dieguez, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $729,965.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to extend and build on our Phase 1 research to create a hierarchical Aided Target Recognition (AiTR) capability utilizing High Range Resolution (HRR) RADAR profiles. We will continue to refine our utilization of Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) as the basis of the… More

Fast Thermal Calculations for Responsive Targets in Support of Real-Time Scene Generation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: University of Alabama in Huntsville
Principal Investigator: Stephen Hartley, Principle Investigator – (256) 971-1364
Award Amount: $99,975.00
RI Contact: S. S. Ravindran
Abstract:
In order to provide the required simulation frame rates we propose to decouple the incident flux calculations from a simple thermal response model. We propose to develop a table-lookup methodology based on high fidelity precomputed environmental and eventually aerothermal fluxes which can be draw in… More

Numerical Model of Subsurface Transport of Noble Gases in Fractured Geologic Media for Detection and Identification of Subsurface Nuclear Explosion Te

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Tim Bole, Project Scientist – (703) 564-3836
Award Amount: $149,915.00
Abstract:
Surface detection of specific radioisotopes of the noble gases xenon and argon are essential for detection and discrimination of underground nuclear explosions. We propose a unique combination of numerical modeling and stable isotope release experiments to enhance the predictability of subsurface… More

Methodologies for a Partial Frame Correlation of Multiple Sensors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Jorge O'Farrill, Principle Investigator – (256) 467-6767
Award Amount: $99,406.00
Abstract:
In order to provide the highest level Quality of Service (QoS) for both tracking and discrimination functions it is imperative that information from all sensors be associated correctly. Due to potential bandwidth, latency and timeline impacts, it may be necessary to limit downlinked Airborne… More

Innovative Signature Exploitation for Long Range Object Discrimination

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD

Award Amount: $99,905.00
Abstract:
One of the principle challenges in developing a robust missile defense architecture is the characterization and classification of objects in a threat complex. The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) performance depends on data from diverse EO/IR and RF sensors. The objective of this proposal… More
