  1. Advanced Data Fusion Using Bayesian Track-Before-Detect

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T003

    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 estimate. In a new approach, the PMHT will be enhanced to not only identify new track starts, but also sh ...

  2. Advanced Data Fusion Using Bayesian Track-Before-Detect

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T003

    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 include multiple models, track management (initiation, deletion, splitting, and merging), covariance c ...

  3. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: MILLENNIUM ENGINEERING AND INTEGRATION CO.            Topic: MDA06T011

    Millennium Engineering and Integration Company and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have teamed to propose development of an entirely new type of infrared detector that has the potential for providing significantly higher Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) detectivity for detector temperatures in the 180-300K temperature range than is presently available. This new detector exploits means of enhancing field em ...

  4. Advance Failure Warning via Data Driven Stochastic Models

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ideal prognostic system would be generic, requiring no domain-specific knowledge for its application. The prognostic system must also perform across all operating regimes without generating an excessive number of false alarms, and must successfullydiagnose problems. The semi-empirical technique proposed herein by Barron Associates, Inc. and its academic partners at Princeton University takes a ...

  5. A Lightweight, Inexpensive, Low-Power Star Tracker for Small Satellites

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Space vehicles designed to resupply systems such as SBIRS Low and Space-Based Laser, as well as maneuverable targets and interceptors, require an affordable, low system-impact sensor for attitude determination, especially when a high degree of navigationis required for high delta-v maneuvers. Today's star trackers are too massive, expensive, and power hungry to appropriately serve small maneuver ...

  6. A Lightweight, Inexpensive, Low-Power Star Tracker for Small Satellites

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In partnership with MIT, AeroAstro will continue the development of a highly innovative lightweight, inexpensive, low power star tracker for small satellite applications. No solution currently exists currently in this area of the trade space. The design developed in Phase I takes advantage of the processing capabilities embedded in newer CMOS imagers to reduce power consumption and limit the amo ...

  8. A Multi-Mission, Integrated Avionics Module for Short-Duration MDA Applications

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "For missions deploying maneuverable vehicles for Boost-Phase and Space-Based Intercept, as well as refueling and resupply for SBIRS Low and Space-Based Laser, MDA requires a compact, highly versatile avionics core with a design that can be reused at verylow cost for a variety of missions. Leveraging previous work, AeroAstro and the University of Alabama Huntsville propose to develop a flexible, ...

  9. An Immersive Virtual Reality Peer Support Application for Individuals with Opioid Use Disorder: Development and Initial Evaluation

    SBC: Very Real Help, LLC            Topic: NIDA

    PROJECT SUMMARY Drug overdoses are the leading cause of death in the United States with approximately 72,000 people dying from drug overdose in 2017. Many of these fatalities occurred in individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD), which is one of the greatest public health issues confronting the United States today. Digital Recovery Support Services (DRSs) that include peer support, psychoeducatio ...

  10. BAND GAP ENGINEERED NANOMATERIALS FOR MISSILE SENSORS (02-214A)

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The far-UV radiations of the electromagnetic spectrum show enormous promise for a variety of applications ranging from extra terrestrial missile sensors to next-generation lithography. However, this region has not been utilized to any great extent so far,due to the absence of window materials that can transmit light of wavelengths below 125 nm. With nanotechnology being increasingly perceived ...
