  1. SH-PMHT for RF/IR Data Correlation

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    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 is to leverage frequency features of both RF and IR sensors in order to advance correlation, association, and ...

  2. SHARE Under Uncertainty

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA12T002

    In the GMD battlespace, it"s critical to rapidly ascertain specific identifying characteristics of a track so follow-on sensors can match the same track. Currently, sensors communicate track data with differing biases and uncertainties with little data-rich content and attempts to utilize track measurement information and target identification have not provided clear improvements; too little infor ...

  3. Modeling of Lithium-Ion Cell Performance


    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with their academic partners and industrial partners propose to develop a prototype integrated physics-based model and accelerated testing process that will reduce the qualification time and testing required for Li-ion cells used in LEO/MEO satellite applications. The integrated physics-based model will focus on three key Li-ion cell degradatio ...

  4. Accurate Scene Generation of Target Characteristics Incorporating Dynamic Atmospheric Conditions using GAIA and OCEANUS

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: MDA11001

    The Ballistic Missile Defense System"s ability to detect and track enemy missiles against space, ocean, or terrain backgrounds, including any intervening clouds as well as atmospheric turbulence, requires prior knowledge of the environmental radiance conditions to support the development of optimal airborne sensors and detection approaches. To support sensor development there is a need for an accu ...

  5. Methodologies for a Partial Frame Correlation of Multiple Sensors


    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 Infrared (ABIR) data to portions of the focal plane around exceedances of interest. As a result, we propose ...

  6. Digital Readout Infrared Focal Plane Array

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: MDA11005

    Dual band infrared sensors are important components for future ballistic missile defense systems. Digital readout integrated circuits (DROICs), compared to analog ROIC architectures, allow on-chip processing, increased dynamic range and increased signal to noise ratio. Deep submicron CMOS provides low power digital circuitry with system noise immunity, and when combined with radiation hardening by ...

  7. Coatings for Rb Vapor Cells

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA11008

    Diode-pumped alkali laser systems (DPALS) are under development for high-energy airborne laser defense systems due to their extremely high theoretical optical efficiency, efficient thermal management, and comparatively small footprint. However, traditional antireflection coatings for the optics used in the alkali vapor cell of the laser cavity are rapidly destroyed by the harsh chemical environmen ...

  8. Innovative Signature Exploitation for Long Range Object Discrimination


    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 is to investigate innovative concepts for long range real-time discrimination of ballistic missile th ...

  9. Sensor Resource Management


    The task of managing employment planning and real time tasking of sensor resources in complex ballistic missile defense target environments demands innovative techniques. As the complexity of a threat scene grows, the resources required to survey the situation grow at an even faster rate. Sensor resource limitations require intelligent and deliberate management in a multi-raid or multi-target envi ...

  10. Coordinated Asset Tasking System for Ballistic Missile Defense


    In order to mitigate the increasing threat of multi-raid short and long range missile attacks from hostile countries and non-state terrorist groups on the U.S. and its allies, advanced, cutting-edge technologies for ballistic missile defense must be developed to ensure their protection and deter potential aggressors. One such key technology is real-time, optimized coordinated tasking and schedulin ...
