  1. Advanced Multisensor Fused Track and Discrimination Architecture

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06T003

    This effort proposes to design and demonstrate the concept of an innovative, Advanced BMDS Multisensor Fused Track and Discrimination Architecture that will enhance the generation of a Single Integrated Picture of the Battlespace. This Architecture permits enhancement of sensor-to-sensor track correlation handover of objects while characterizing their lethality for later target designation purpos ...

  2. Advanced Signal Processing to Enhance Target Detection & Discrimination In High Countermeasure Environment

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06T002

    ABSTRACT: Missile defense radars use wideband waveforms along with coherent processing to extract detailed target features and perform high range /Doppler resolution functions. Reduced RCS targets embedded in high clutter (chaff, or chaff-like fuel debris, etc.) environments present significant challenges. Closely spaced objects and decoys accompanying targets of interest inherently increase the c ...

  3. AlGaN/GaN HFETs on Silicon for BMDS X-Band Radars

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: MDA06T012

    In this program, we will combine commercially available AlGaN/GaN on Si FETs with short gates such that the high frequency performance (X-band and higher) can be significantly increased. The AlGaN/GaN material system has significant advantages over the incumbent technology for X-band applications; specifically, AlGaN/GaN FETs have much higher power density which translates into broader bandwidth. ...

  4. Innovative Polishing Technology for Fabrication of High Performance Epi-ready GaSb Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA12T003

    Antimony containing III-V semiconducting compounds are particularly attractive for the fabrication of a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photo detectors operating in the long wave infrared wavelength (12-32µm) range. The production of epi quality GaSb wafers still remains one of the important problems for rapid commercialization of GaSb devices. Sinmat Inc. proposes a ...

  5. Innovative Technologies Supporting Affordable Increases in Power, Efficiency, and Bandwidth for Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) X-Band Radars

    SBC: PHASE IV SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA06T012

    Under this STTR effort, the Phase IV Systems/Auburn University team will leverage Auburn University’s knowledge in applied genetic algorithm optimization algorithms for RF design problems to develop an X-band radiating element with improved mutual coupling and bandwidth compared with conventional printed circuit radiating elements. The design constraints for the genetic algorithm are increased ...

  6. Matched and Ultra-Low CTE Optical Materials

    SBC: GATR Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T021

    A new material and processing technology has been developed and demonstrated that will dramatically reduce the cost of manufacturing and refurbishing large aluminum based mirrors for optical test applications. Such precision mirrors are also required for surveillance, directed energy, cryo-vacuum scene generation, optical testing, and DoD-sponsored space programs. Traditional aluminum mirror techn ...

  9. Rapid Atomic Level, Mechano Chemical Polishing of Silicon Carbide Substrates

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: MDA04T018

    Currently one of the outstanding challenges is the affordable, volume production of epi-ready, 100 mm SiC wafers that are scratch-free and have atomic-scale surface finish. As SiC is relatively chemically inert and mechanically hard, aggressive polishing methods involving very hard particles have been used to achieve high removal rates, but such methods create a high degree of sub-surface damage ...

  10. RF-IR Data Fusion

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA12T002

    The development and integration of three unique and innovative algorithm prototypes into a"Fused Track and Characterization Schema"are proposed. This Schema will encompass the determination of signatures and characteristics of objects that can be identified by RF and EO/IR Sensors in order to enable multi-sensor data fusion and correlation. The first algorithm, the"3D Pose Estimation"Algorithm, p ...
