  1. New and Innovative Overhead Persistent InfraRed (OPIR) Sensor Tasking Capabilities


    Our objective is to develop and demonstrate an integrated capability to perform dynamic retasking of enterprise wide management of OPIR, radar, and other operationally relevant sensors. The goals of this effort are to refine our existing OPIR tasking approach and to develop and Enterprise SRM approach that will allow the C2BMC to achieve the earliest possible launch detection and maintain the high ...

  3. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...

  4. Debris Assessment from Spectrally Diverse Sensors and Air Sample to Aid Post-Intercept Weapons Typing

    SBC: Princton Science, Inc. (Scitec, Inc.)            Topic: MDA07044

    The proposed work extends studies conducted during Phase I to a demonstration of weapons typing assessment with high confidence using information from the BMD System at the Missile Defense Integrated Operation Center (MDIOC) and additional data from non-M

  5. An Advanced Thermal Management System for Gimbal-Mounted Sensors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA07004

    Future missile detection systems will require improved thermal management for cooling gimbal-mounted sensors and optics. Current systems utilize cryocoolers placed on the gimbal, which necessitates the cryocooler heat to be rejected directly from the gimbal. A superior approach in terms of payload mass would locate the cryocooler warm elements on the stationary platform near the spacecraft heat ...

  6. Mitigation of Radar Clutter Using Algorithmic Techniques

    SBC: C & P Technologies Inc.            Topic: MDA07030

    The Nation has made substantial investments in new and unprecedented radar systems for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) segment of the missile defense mission. Such GMD radars can achieve record breaking power-aperture products required for long range detection and tracking of potentially weak targets. The aforementioned capabilities arise from the requirement to: “detect, track and iden ...

  7. Slow Cook-Off Insensitive Munitions Solutions for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA07047

    A major MDA thrust area is the development of highly reliable technologies for Insensitive Munition (IM) compliance for Large Diameter Solid Rocket Motors (SRM) subjected to slow cook-off. Federal law requires all munitions to be as IM compliant as is practicable. Currently no solution exists for slow cook-off that reduces the reaction violence or allows the large diameter solid rocket motors to ...

  8. Distributed Real-Time Information Assurance Management Technologies

    SBC: ALTUSYS CORP.            Topic: MDA07039

    The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) requires a method for a distributed, near real-time, security management system that provides comprehensive situational awareness of the Information Assurance state of the BMDS and its components. Altusys has de

  9. Track Correlation / Sensor Netting

    SBC: BKF Systems            Topic: MDA07046

    Detection, tracking, and identification of ballistic missiles can benefit significantly from improved correlation of the tracks and detections. Tracks and detections are coming from the optical sensors and the radar sensors for further fusion of data into the single picture of the situation. However, available association/correlation methods are not nearly robust enough. Several radar, EO, and IR ...

  10. Compact and Robust RF-Photonic Modules for High Dynamic Range Radar Applications

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: MDA07038

    EOSPACE will develop and build a prototype Ultra-Compact and Robust High Performance RF-Photonic Module for use in MDA/Military High Dynamic Range Radar applications. The compact module will achieve a two-fold (2x) reduction in size, weight and power while maintaining high performance operations over extended temperature ranges. A unique EOSPACE extended temperature, and high dynamic range modulat ...
