  1. Fast-Running Physics-Based Models for Intercept Debris Aero-heating and Aero-thermal Demise

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA12009

    Corvid Technologies is pleased to offer this SBIR Phase I proposal. In the proposed effort, we will develop a fast-running, predictive methodology for the aerothermal demise of the debris generated during a Ballistic Missile Defense intercept event. This model will be informed by existing high-fidelity tools for material response and ablation, as well as new and existing engineering models for a ...

  2. Modeling High Explosive (HE) Detonation Response and Resulting Debris/Shrapnel Generation from Submunitions Warheads

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA12008

    As MDA continues implementation of the Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA), high fidelity and accurate characterization of post-intercept debris environments will become more and more critical to the successful operation of the larger Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) system. The objective of this proposed effort is to leverage first principles physics based codes to more accurately model high and low-o ...

  3. Adaptive Compression of Telemetry Data using Application Specific Dictionaries

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: MDA12012

    Vadum proposes to create a novel telemetry data compression/decompression system, SCoCD (Sparse Compression on Complete Dictionaries) with very low latency, very high compression rate, and very low distortion. The system will allow lossless compression, and can be tuned for each type of data stream with particular emphasis on imagery. Vadum has demonstrated x59 compression of Aegis test-fire ima ...

  4. Post Intercept Debris Predictions for EO/IR Scene Modeling

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA12T005

    Corvid Technologies is pleased to offer this STTR Phase I proposal in collaboration with The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and Spectral Sciences, Incorporated. The emphasis of the proposed effort is to develop a new methodology for predicting late-time EO/IR signatures from high-velocity impacts during a Ballistic Missile Defense intercept event. This collaborative effort w ...

  5. Feature Based Machine Leaning for Multiple Target Detection and Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: MDA12028

    In this research effort, Vadum will demonstrate the feasibility of a machine learning approach to address the problem of debris mitigation and improve multiple target discrimination. This algorithm is a very fast, highly accurate multi-class approach based upon the concepts of bagging (bootstrap aggregation), boosting and random subspace projection. This algorithm will allow for de-emphasis (pr ...

  6. Improved Target Discrimination of Multiple Targets Using Bulk Filtering for Debris

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA12028

    Corvid Technologies in collaboration with Dynetics, Inc ("Dynetics") is pleased to present the following proposal to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) SBIR solicitation MDA12-028 entitled Improved Target Discrimination of Multiple Targets Using Bulk Filtering for Debris. This proposal will demonstrate our plan to identify and evaluate signal processing techniques and algorithms that will minimize ...

  7. Anchoring Post-Intercept Debris Prediction Tools

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA12029

    As MDA continues implementation of the Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA), robust operation of BMDS sensors within post-intercept debris environments will become more critical to successful operation of the larger BMDS. Due to a paucity of test data, development and performance testing of BMDS sensors in these dense debris environments must rely heavily on M & S capabilities. Several post-intercept ...

  8. Over the Horizon Underwater Communications

    SBC: Physical Devices, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM13002

    An analysis of alternatives, including modeling, will be conducted of such candidates technologies such as localization, energy provision, and reporting, which are required for long-duration, LPD localization of various types of vessels operating in blue, green and brown water, with near-real time communications, to support global maritime tag track and locate capabilities in support of national a ...

  9. Integrated Wideband Tactical Power Amplifier

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM13004

    Vadum proposes a feasibility study to define the next generation power amplifier for the Special Operations Forces (SOF) warfighter. This program will deliver extended bandwidth, more complex waveform capability, longer battery life, higher field reliability, and wide compatibility across radio types. The Phase I deliverable will be a comprehensive trade study and a proposed PA design which incl ...

  10. Family of Sub-Sonic Ammunition

    SBC: Stillwood Ammunition Systems LLC.            Topic: SOCOM13005

    Technical abstract 13.1-005 Today there is no sub-sonic ammunition currently type classified for use in the calibers provided by any DoD Service. Although sub-sonic rounds exist for some calibers, these rounds are not cost effective and exhibit excessive deviations in velocity (affecting accuracy), incomplete chamber sealing, absence of clean propellant burn, and inability to cycle the action on ...
