  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Responsive Microsatellite Target System Design Implementation

    SBC: MICROSAT SYSTEMS            Topic: MDA04182

    The Missile Defense Agency’s (MDA) Advanced Systems group is seeking novel techniques to enable coherent, accurate, and sustained operation of distributed aperture phased array radars. New techniques are required to improve discrimination capability and reduce countermeasures susceptibility. MicroSat Systems, Inc. (MSI), a small satellite developer with significant experience in low cost, rapid ...

  9. Hybrid and Feature-Aided Multiple Hypothesis Correlation with Ambiguity Assessment

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA04121

    In our Phase I program, Numerica developed a prototype for a hybrid and feature-aided multiple hypothesis correlation (HMHC) system that provides a framework to address several deficiencies in the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). During the last two years, Numerica has partnered with the Missile Defense National Team-B (MDNTB) through the prime contractor, Lockheed Martin, to support track ...

  10. Hierarchical Image Processing for CSO Resolution

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA04157

    Observation of closely-spaced objects using limited-resolution infrared sensor systems can result in merged measurements, which can hamper the performance of both tracking algorithms and discrimination. Algorithms intended to improve image resolution capability are often processor-intensive. This can limit their applicability for space systems onboard processing, particularly in the short timelin ...
