  1. Efficient Sensor Management for Optimal Multi-Task Performance (ES-MaTe)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA10002

    The vision of the Efficient Sensor Management for Optimal Multi-Task Performance (ES-MaTe) initiative is to develop technology that will enable C2BMC to plan and manage multiple sensor resources in order to support dynamic planning for defense against hostile multi-raid missile attack. BMDS uses multiple disparate and spatially separated sensors to support tracking, in flight target update of thre ...

  2. Multi-Spectral Scene Generator Upgrade

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA05049

    Abstract: Radiance Technologies will develop a Multi-Spectrum Scene Generator (MSSG) to support the testing requirements of current sensing technologies under development by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). This MSSG will minimize the real-time computational requirements and reduce the nodal data transfer by utilizing a novel system architecture. The MSSG will interface with projection systems ...

  3. Sensor Fusion Dynamic Scenario Descriptor

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA10001

    For Phase II, Radiance proposes to advance our design, implementation and testing of multi-sensor (RF/IR/Vis), multi-platform data fusion algorithms, advancing the state-of-the-art in Rao-Blackwellised Particle Filters in a dynamic Bayesian network framework. This effort supports the development of a multi-sensor, multi-geometry picture of threat scenarios, supporting C2BMCs requirement for a sing ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
