  1. Cognitive Residential Heat Pump Fault Detection and Diagnostic Datalogger

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: 9010173R

    Millions of heat pumps are used to heat and cool homes and buildings year round. Continuous operation means that components wear out at a greater rate. As a result, maintenance of residential heat pumps is a major cost driver. Current methods focus on reduced use through control settings. Typically, demand has wide swings throughout the day and people are unable to customize controls. Inevitably, ...

  2. Hiawatha Integrated Monitoring System (H-IMS): An Integrated Solution for Electromagnetic Detection of FIB Facilitated IC Modifications

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA11018

    Because Critical Program Information (CPI) is often embedded in Integrated Circuits (ICs), adversaries must now attack at the die level or through other intrusive means. As a result, Focused Ion Beams (FIBs) have become a preferred tool for reverse engineering. In Phase I, Nokomis demonstrated that FIB edits showed distinct, exploitable emission signature differences whose detection could be used ...

  3. Atmospheric Characterization for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: MDA12017

    MZA extends its partnership with the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) during Phase II to develop an integrated optical measurement and numerical weather prediction (NWP) atmospheric turbulence characterization system and atmospheric decision assistance toolkit application (DATA). We will develop a tracking telescope optical diagnostic system which images passing satellites or star fields a ...

  4. 2-D Hyperspectral Imaging for High Speed Target Engagement and Identification

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: MDA12014

    A framing two dimensional (2-D) hyperspectral imager will be developed to operate in the short wavelength infrared and midwavelength infrared (SWIR-MWIR) bands.This instrument will allow spatial information to be gathered from the scene without spectral or spatial scanning.In Phase II, an advanced technology demonstrator will be designed and constructed.This demonstrator will be field tested in or ...

  5. Innovative Part Class Coverage for the Advanced Detection of Electronic Counterfeits (ADEC) System

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: MDA12026

    The primary objective of this Phase II is to develop more complete part class coverage for the ADEC system. During Phase I, Nokomis demonstrated ADEC"s authentication capabilities. ADEC detects counterfeits through automated analysis of unintended radiated emissions that are characteristic of the internal circuitry of the device. This allows ADEC to rapidly detect multiple classes of counterfei ...

  6. Low Cost, High Performance Inertial Rate Sensors- Airborne

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04181

    ATA proposes development of an Advanced Rate Gyro (ARG) that blends two of ATA’s developmental designs to fulfill MDA’s airborne gyroscope requirements. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) requires such high performance gyros for Advanced Inertial Reference Units (aIRUs) for Airborne Laser DE systems and space-based surveillance and weapons systems. Current high performance gyros are marginal in mee ...

  7. Auto-Correcting Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04130

    Department of Defense space surveillance and weapons systems require highly accurate inertial knowledge in absolute location and orientation. Current technologies providing these functions are not integrated into a single, light-weight, low-cost, power-efficient, and drift-free instrument. Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to further develop its innovative Auto-correcting Inertial Measu ...

  8. High Bandwidth Fast Steering Mirror

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA04109

    As the Airborne Laser (ABL) comes closer to directing a high energy laser (HEL) at a boosting missile target, it is essential that higher bandwidth fast steering mirrors (FSMs) need to be developed. These FSMs must be capable of controlling large 12-inch mirrors while handling the HEL power levels. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that a FSM mechanism (substrate and mounting structure) can be designe ...

  9. Advanced Divert and Attitude Control (DACS) system for the Multiple (Miniature) Kill Vehicles (MKV)


    One possible method to intercept intercontinental ballistic missiles which deploy countermeasures is to use a "shotgun" approach, in which numerous small, cheap kill vehicles are deployed simultaneously in the hopes of scoring multiple hits. In order to be effective, such vehicles must be compact, inexpensive, reliable, and responsive. Miniaturizing a propulsion system is difficult because energet ...

  10. Multi-sensor tracking techniques


    We propose to develop algorithms and software to fuse data from multiple sensor systems that are tracking ballistic missile threat(s) in order to provide a tactical picture of higher quality than that capable from any single sensor. We will build upon our previously developed Data Fusion Correlation Algorithm (DFCA). The DFCA is a multi-source track-to-track, multi-hypothesis data fusion system ...
