  1. The S0 UAS, an Air Deployed Solution for Boundary Layer Observations in Turbulent Environments

    SBC: Black Swift Technologies LLC            Topic: 8213

    Previous efforts have demonstrated that targeted observations of tropical storms by UAS can provide extremely valuable data sets for improving forecasts and models, but are also difficult to obtain. A number of obstacles including regulations and the distance required to intercept evolving storms have limited the number of land based flights. The use of airborne deployed UAS have recently overcome ...

  2. Development of a Solar Powered Aerosol Reference Calibrator

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 813

    This project will develop and demonstrate an inexpensive and portable calibration system for low-cost aerosol sensors. Current calibration methods are cost prohibitive and lack generalizability from one location (or season) to the next, making them impractical for implementation. Access Sensor Technologies (AST) proposes to improve and validate a solar powered aerosol reference calibrator (SPARC) ...

  3. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    The Bottom Feeder project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a prototype platform. The prototype will be a full size version of the platform designed during Phase I. The Phase I platform was designed to work in two operational configurations, a highly efficient mode and a highly maneuverable mode, with the ability to switch between them while submerged. The platform is equ ...

  4. Employing Optimization to Streamline Scenario Generation Across a System of Systems M&S Enterprise

    SBC: OPTIMIZATION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA16006

    A simulation optimization tool can exploit existing BMDS simulation models to streamline the scenario generation analysis process. Our Phase II project will focus on using a simulation optimization approach to solve the problem of generating a minimal collection of test scenarios, using the minimum number of shared scenario components that meets a required set of test objectives. Each individual s ...

  5. Techniques for Real-time Hypervelocity Projectile fly-out Generation and Optimization

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: MDA18002

    Vadum has demonstrated the Optimal Advanced Hypervelocity Projectile (HVP) Trajectory System (OATHS) which increases the performance of the HVP by optimizing HVP trajectory to its target. OATHS was prototyped and tested using an in-house MATLAB-based combat system development environment. The results of Phase I testing show that OATHS can feasibly increase HVP probability of kill or reduce the tot ...

  6. Extensions to the ONBU Algorithm for Increased Operational Relevance

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA14003

    We propose maturation and extension of an innovative batch algorithm for track scene history reconstruction, and track refinement conditioned on this history, given input source track data from one or more sensors. The envisioned method is designed to process both kinematic data (e.g., track reports) and feature/discrimination data (e.g., useful to distinguish objects seen by multiple sensors to s ...

  7. Techniques for Real-time Hypervelocity Projectile fly-out Generation and Optimization

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA18002

    Hypervelocity projectiles (HVPs) offer the potential for highly effective and low-cost point defense against missile threats. Classical guidance schemes are ill-suited to the unpowered dynamics of the HVP, as they fail to account for its changing capabilities and limited energy budget over the course of the fly-out. Numerica’s solution consists of an automated real-time fly-out trajectory optimi ...

  8. Unstructured Fixed Grid with Moving Body, Navier-Stokes Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Solver for Simulating Gas Flows

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA04136

    In this PhaseII SBIR effort, Corvid Technologies completes the development of an innovative approach for solving Unstructured Fixed Grid Navier-Stokes CFD flow simulations. The proposed approach developed at Corvid is referred to as the Virtual Geometry Insertion (VGI) technique. This approach allows for the virtual insertion of arbitrary geometric components into a standard CFD analysis. This g ...

  9. Cost-effective improvement during development of advanced manufacturing processes

    SBC: COSTVISION            Topic: MDA04111

    Defense acquisition programs are plagued by cost over-runs and extended development times. The root cause of many of these problems is a lack of adequate tools to evaluate the impact on cost and schedule of different choices of characteristics, designs, materials, manufacturing processes and suppliers. In this proposal, we are extending an existing enterprise-wide costing software framework to ...

  10. Stratospheric Lightning Forecasting and Nowcasting Tools

    SBC: FMA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA04159

    MDA’s planned High Altitude Airship (HAA) will require long term, all weather operational station-keeping capability. During Phase II, a prototype, 3-station national charge moment change network (CMCN) will be established to operationally detect those lightning strokes inducing intense and impulsive electric fields associated with middle atmospheric sprites, halos, elves, etc. (collectively cal ...
