  1. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II ...

  2. Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Integrated Vibration Attenuation

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA13T007

    The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of remaining stable under temperature and moisture changes, while isolating the precision optical array from vibrations such as engine noise and air turbulence. By integrating a customizable periodic stack in the bench, vibrations are attenuated more effectively than commercially available mounts. Additionally, the periodic ...

  3. Decision Making under Uncertainty

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Our proposed second order uncertainty (SOU) product is a decision making software solution that addresses the problem of providing accurate and precisely defined decision courses of action (COAs) of complex, time-constrained problems in a fraction of the time required by alternative methods striving to achieve the same level of precision. Complex decision situations can deal with large volume of ...

  4. Ultrafast Physical Random Number Generation Using Chaos

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A14AT002

    Random numbers are essential for a growing number of modern applications. As computer speed and communications bandwidth have increased the potential for practical streaming cipher and large-scale Monte Carlo simulations have become technologically feasible. For these and other applications, ultrafast random number generators are essential. This is intuitively clear. Additionally, however, the ide ...

  5. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...

  6. Smart Femtosecond Fiber Laser Wound Healing System

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: DHP15B002

    Based on our success in developing the world first commercial high energy femtosecond fiber laser system and our leading proprietary technology development in ultrashort pulsed fiber laser material processing, PolarOnyx proposes, for the first time, a compact high energy fiber laser based smart wound healing tool to meet with the requirement of this DHP solicitation. It includes a high energy fs f ...

  7. Analog Co-Processors for Complex System Simulation and Design

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: ST15C002

    It has long been known that analog computers can be faster and more power efficient than digital processors by many orders of magnitude. Until the 1970s analog computers were the dominant controllers in most industrial and military applications. Even today digital processors are still slower and more power consumptive than analog, but offer much more flexibility (programmability) and precision. ...

  8. Embedded Sensors for Flight Test (Every Aircraft a Test Aircraft)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT01

    Increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, GNC, etc., enabled by smaller and more capable electronics systems have led to a trend for overall size reduction in military aircraft. This has resulted in a reduction in the avail...

  9. Interactive Sensor Fusion for Context-Aware Discrimination

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA15T001

    We propose a novel computational framework for discrimination that incorporates sensor data from observations of the engagement and from kill assessment (KA) that such sensors can provide. The KA information is combined with data from other sensors to improve the discrimination decision and to reduce the probability of correlated shots. Approved for Public Release 16-MDA-8620 (1 April 16)

  10. Robust Classification through Deep Learning and Dynamic Multi-Entity Bayesian Reasoning

    SBC: ExoAnalytic Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Missile defense faces the challenges of rapidly maturing and evolving complex threats, possessing capabilities which require the use of all available resources to successfully detect, track and identify the lethal objects. Future performance will rely on multiple sensors such as ground and sea based radars and electro-optical and infrared sensors for target recognition. It is crucial to develop a ...
