  2. Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing Technologies

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11006

    Current acquisition, tracking and pointing (ATP) technologies employ optical image processing and/or inertial measurement unit (IMU) data to mitigate image jitter in critical air and space borne targeting applications. Image processing is typically performed using the Kalman filter or some variant thereof, despite the fact that these filters have known shortcomings. In general, they are ill suit ...

  3. Methodologies for Accurate Assessment of Target Characteristics

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA11039

    IERUS Technologies will provide a unique capability to MDA allowing dramatic enhancement of simulation speed and accuracy for RF signature characterization of missile defense targets or threats. Not only has IERUS demonstrated understanding of the MDA RF signature modeling problem, but IERUS personnel are experts in RF prediction software as demonstrated through 1) the release of V-Lox, IERUSs co ...

  4. Anti-Tamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11018

    The goal of this research is to develop Unclonable Functions that will generate reliable cryptographic keys based on system characteristics. In the event of a reverse engineering attack, the encrypted configuration files, programs, and data will not be deciphered because the attack modifies the cryptographic keys. LIT"s goal is to develop Unclonable Functions that may be used in FPGAs or ASICs to ...

  5. Telemetry Impact Reduction for Target Objects

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA11040

    A primary source of impact to BMDS observables results from the RF signature and IR signature perturbations caused by antennas. To combat this problem, IERUS proposes the development of optimized antenna elements for BMDS telemetry bands whose RF signature has been minimized in the BMDS radar bands (S and X-bands). During Phase 1 of this program, IERUS demonstrated its design process by demonstra ...

  6. Mitigation of the Effects of the Ionosphere on UEWR

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA11034

    We propose to build a model of the Upgraded Early Warning Radar (UEWR), configured for the Thule site, to model the effects of ionospheric scintillation on radar performance. The results of our Phase I investigation show that the physical phenomena driving scintillation link solar energetic events to turbulence in the electron content of the ionosphere. Although there are number of sensors used ...

  7. AIMSMART: Adaptive, Interactive MDA Semantic Model-based Articulation

    SBC: CYCORP, INC.            Topic: MDA11T003

    We will develop automatic ontology-aligning software, leveraging the enormous existing Cyc AI system to drive the formulation and ranking (pro/con argumentation) of hypotheses about term-term relationships, especially where the relationship is not simple 1-to-1 correspondence. Multiple Cyc micro-theories (contexts) will be created, to hold incommensurate alternative mappings, and logical conseque ...

  8. Real-time Ladar Scene Rendering and Projection Component Technologies

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA05049

    The AEgis Technologies Group Inc. is proposing this Phase II SBIR development effort to address the data bandwidth bottleneck that currently exists between Hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) Scene Generation computing clusters and the sensor stimulators. The existing data links use COTS based video interfaces that result in a bandwidth shortfall by at least 100x for applications in multispectral, hypersp ...

  9. Sensor Resource Management

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Torch proposes to develop, test, and validate real-time BMDS Sensor Resource Management (SRM) algorithms using a scalable sensor network data fusion architecture which is both efficient and robust. Our Phase II SRM development approach is enabled by our Phase I validated "SORCIRER" (Scalable Optimization of Resources using Constrained Information Rate and Embedded Rules) SRM architecture. Our ne ...

  10. Radiation Hardening of Point-Of-Load (POL) Converters

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: MDA10021

    Due to growing defense and aerospace system complexity and associated power management and distribution schemes, there is an ever-increasing need for monolithic, fully integrated, high efficiency, Point-of-Load (POL) converters to replace the centrally tailored power distribution approaches of the past. This Phase II effort will establish and demonstrate an approach to a ruggedized, Mil-Spec, ex ...
