Award List:

Advanced Data Fusion Using Bayesian Track-Before-Detect

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: UNIV. OF CONNECTICUT
Principal Investigator: Darin Dunham, Senior Research Engineer
Award Amount: $99,938.00
RI Contact: Peter Willett
Abstract:
Dispersed sensors offer more information to tracking systems than a single sensor and this additional information should improve the performance. Typical approaches only use information from a single sensor to initialize tracks and then use measurements from other sensors to improve the track… More

Association of Target Features and Attributes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Darin Dunham, Senior Research Engineer
Award Amount: $69,982.00
Abstract:
Producing SIAP requires correct processing at a number of steps. In the ideal scenario, each sensor in the network produces pure tracks. Then, each sensor reports its local tracks and measurements to other sensor platforms, where SIAP will be achieved. To avoid redundant tracks, the distributed… More

Advanced Data Fusion Using Bayesian Track-Before-Detect

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: UNIV. OF CONNECTICUT
Principal Investigator: Darin Dunham, Senior Research Engineer
Award Amount: $999,980.00
RI Contact: Peter Willett
Abstract:
We are proposing adding several enhancements to this new version of the Multi-Frame Probabilistic Multi-Hypothesis Tracker (MF-PMHT) in order to ready it for testing in the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) Benchmark and the X-Lab. During this effort a working prototype will be developed that will… More

Fusion Processing That Adapts to Disparate or Degraded Sensor Data

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Darin Dunham, Senior Research Engineer
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
Ballistic missile objects separate during deployment and this separation causes several complications and challenges to accurate target tracking of the lethal objects. One of the complications that occurs is the degraded ability to discriminate which of the separating objects are the lethal ones. … More

PMHT Track Fusion for ABIR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Darin Dunham, Senior Research Engineer – (804) 749-8750
Award Amount: $99,986.00
Abstract:
Fusing data together for target tracking is a complex problem. There are two elements: First, the raw observations must be associated with existing tracks or used to form new tracks. Once the association has been done, then the tracks can be updated and filtered with the new data. When… More

AAV Benchmark

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Terry Ogle, Advanced Research Enginee – (864) 973-1114
Award Amount: $79,971.00
Abstract:
The term benchmark originates from the chiseled horizontal marks that surveyors made, into which an angle-iron could be placed to bracket ("bench") a leveling rod, thus ensuring that the leveling rod can be repositioned in exactly the same place in the future. A benchmark in computer terms… More

SH-PMHT for RF/IR Data Correlation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: University of Connecticut
Principal Investigator: Darin Dunham, Senior Research Engineer – (804) 749-8750
Award Amount: $99,893.00
RI Contact: Peter Willett
Abstract:
In this Phase I SBIR project for MDA, Vectraxx of Glen Allen, Virginia will address the critical problem of correlating tracks from RF to IR sensors. This is an essential element to the sea-based component of the MDA"s Ballistic Missile Defense System. The objective of this R & D effort… More

EOIR Fusion during Ascent Phase for C2BMC

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: University of Connecticut
Principal Investigator: Darin Dunham, Senior Research Engineer – (804) 519-5480
Award Amount: $99,922.00
RI Contact: Peter Willett
Abstract:
In this Phase I STTR project for MDA, Vectraxx of Glen Allen, Virginia will address the critical problem of dealing with pre-intercept debris fields and launch family clusters as seen by IR sensors. This is an essential element to the ascent phase component of the MDA"s Ballistic Missile… More
