  1. Aspen: Analyzing the compatibility of security policies in a system of systems

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: MDA06002

    Complex applications are, increasingly, constructed by networking and integrating computer systems and services, each with its own stakeholders and security policy. Developers can find it difficult to understand how those policies mediate interactions among the component systems. Access decisions at some internal interface can have profound and unanticipated consequences, affecting both the func ...

  2. Chipotle: A Peer-to-Peer System for Highly Distributed and Fault Tolerant XML Data Management

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: MDA05053

    ATC-NY, and collaborators from Cornell University, the US Naval Academy, and Architecture Technology Corporation, will design and build Chipotle, a distributed XML database targeting the needs of the MDA, other DoD operations, and organizations providing emergency services. The Chipotle system will be highly resistant to failures, require no centralized control (and thus present no central point ...

  3. Multiband Infrared Focal Plane Array for Seeker Applications

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: MDA06016

    Improved interceptor seeker capability to detect, identify, and discriminate re-entry vehicles (RV’s) from countermeasures at distances of hundreds of kilometers is critical for missile defense. Development of an advanced infrared seeker combining high-spatial resolution with multiband detection for spectral discrimination is desired for material identification and RV discrimination. The challen ...

  4. Advanced Radar Data Fusion

    SBC: CAPRARO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA05038

    The task of accurately acquiring, tracking, discriminating and engaging a missile/warhead amongst closely spaced decoys immersed in clutter is a challenge for one or more radar systems. The objective of this proposal is to optimally design multi-sensor data collection, processing and fusion strategies when multiple radars and/or other sensors are employed to form a single integrated picture of the ...

  5. Multi-Classifier Target Identification (MCTID)

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: MDA05057

    Target identification for the boost and early ascent (BEA) phase, and the midcourse (MC) phase is one of the most challenging problems for the BMDS. The Multi-Classifier Target Identification project employs two synergistic classifier techniques - a probabilistic Bayesian Classifier and a deterministic Topological Classifier – to develop target classifications using weighted target features. Th ...

  6. Cost Modeling Interoperability & Integration within the Model-Based Enterprise

    SBC: COSTVISION            Topic: MDA06029

    Defense acquisition programs suffer from cost escalation due to the inability to accurately estimate costs up front and to predict the cost impact of changes. In this program, we will work with several leading MDA manufacturers to define the requirements for a costing framework integrated with their engineering and business software infrastructure. The framework will facilitate the establishm ...

  7. High power solid state amplifiers on non-polar AlN substrates for ground-based missile defense system radars

    SBC: Crystal IS, Inc.            Topic: MDA06035

    Research efforts will focus on design, simulation and fabrication of X-band transistors for use in power amplifiers and T/R modules for missile defense radar systems. Innovative, next generation nitride based power transistors will be fabricated on non-polar native AlN substrates. This will enable new device designs without the strong polarization fields associated with typical nitride growth al ...

  8. Advanced, Low Cost, Integrated Avionics

    SBC: Data Fusion Corporation            Topic: MDA05062

    Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) and Honeywell Aerospace Electronic Systems propose the development of a prototype, tightly coupled GPS/INS navigation/control system that is resistant to structured interference and jamming. This next-generation navigation system shall be employed in interceptor-seekers and other high-dynamic precision-guided munitions and plat-forms. By coupling a existing and futu ...

  9. Close Coupling of Excited Oxygen with Iodine Injection in COIL Lasers

    SBC: DIRECTED ENERGY SOLUTIONS            Topic: MDA06T005

    Directed Energy Solutions (DES) and the University of Denver Research Institute (DRI) propose a program aimed at revolutionary advancement of the current technology used in powering high-energy chemical iodine lasers. Our approach is to use a unique generator with a high specific surface area and compact generator volume to produce high yields of singlet delta oxygen (SDO) and transport the flow ...

  10. Hypergolic Chemical Leak Detector


    Hydrazines, nitrogen oxides, and other highly reactive compounds are extensively used as missile propellants. The toxic nature of these substances requires careful monitoring over long periods to ensure safety of personnel particularly during mobilization after prolonged storage. Detecting chemical leaks may also prevent critical system failures within the missiles. Currently, there are no sens ...
