  1. Detection of Hostile Fire from the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA)

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT:Recent technical demonstrations in hostile fire sensing and classification have highlighted the use of costly cryogenically-cooled electro-optical sensors.While capable, these types of sensors come with a higher initial purchase price as well as high life cycle costs per platform.This activity will implement a broad area hostile fire sensing architecture that uses lower cost discrete sens ...

  6. System Communications

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: MDA15003

    Building a reliable, high-bandwidth, and low-latency network is crucial to a distributed mission defense system in which the sensors are operated from thousand-mile distances. This is more significant for satellite linkswhich connect sensors distributed in a large area. In this project, we propose Reducing Data Latency and Increasing Network Bandwidth and Reliability (RDLINBR) for missile defenses ...

  7. SCORESimulated Challenge for Operational Readiness and Engagement

    SBC: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC            Topic: MDA15005

    We propose warfighter training systems that are more effective, engaging, and efficient than todays systems. Practicing in a simulated environment has little value without the ability to accurately assess and remediate performance. Unique actions and decisions of each performer must be quantified and related to mission success or failure in a way that appropriately maps the contributing knowledge, ...
