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

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

    The objective of this Phase I SBIR proposal is to show the feasibility of integrating the key optical and electronic components of a multichannel laser modulator into a single multichip module (MCM). The module concept developed under this effort will consist of at least eight parallel channels capable of independently producing an analog amplitude modulated optical waveform. Integration will incl ...

  2. Technologies to Improve Software Acquisition/Development Process

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA04034

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) does not currently have an automated, centralized database to store Rad-Hardening (Rad-Hard) vendor data and corresponding test results. Portions of this data are currently stored in a spreadsheet, without consistency, distributed access, robust data search, filtering, or reporting capabilities. These data are not readily available to the developers of mission-crit ...

  3. Automated Feature Extraction Capabilities for the Development of High-Resolution GEOINT Feature Data and Constructing Correlated Databases

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06012

    Our solution to the automated feature extraction problem will leverage the material properties that can be inferred from combining multispectral imagery with high resolution elevation data or LIDAR data using a trainable knowledge base. Multiple imaging bands provide a more complete picture of the material involved than ordinary RGB. This can help distinguish between a green grass lawn and a gre ...

  4. IMU/GPS Accuracy Enhancements for GMD

    SBC: GH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA04096

    The IMU/GPS Accuracy Enhancements for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Phase II effort will take the results and implementation approach from the Phase I effort and will develop a prototype/engineering unit, verify functional performance, and validate key performance requirements. This prototype/engineering unit will be used with a GPS simulator to demonstrate the refinement in the sensor out ...

  5. Two-Color Radiation Hardened Gamma-Ray Noise Suppressing FPA Design Program

    SBC: GH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA05026

    Radiation Hardened multi-color infrared (IR) focal planes are required for the US Navy Aegis Standard Missile 3 (SM-3) interceptor system. The key to meeting the system requirements for the SM-3 and other missile interceptor systems is the development of multi-color radiation hardened two-color long wave (LW) focal plane arrays (FPAs) with very high pixel operability. One of the shortfalls in cu ...

  6. Radiation Hardened Optical Filters for Focal Plan Assemblies

    SBC: GH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA05019

    Missile Defense surveillance and interceptor sensor operations typically use cryogenically cooled infrared sensors that operate while being exposed to natural space radiation and possibly to nuclear weapon radiation, both of which have the potential to degrade system performance. USASMDC's Hardened Infrared Optical Components (HIROC) program test results indicate that cryogenically cooled optical ...

  7. Innovative Approaches to Increased Power and Efficiency in Components for X-Band Radar for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: MDA04089

    The proposed research will produce alternative, effective fractal patterns that provide: flexibility in the design process, additional degrees of freedom to the design engineer and enhanced SNR in RF systems. This should enable design engineers to support existing MDA GMD radar system LFM waveforms while also enabling consideration of advanced radar waveforms that might be required for special rad ...

  8. Innovative Approaches to Increased Power and Efficiency in Components for X-Band Radar for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: MDA04089

    The proposed research in multilayer dielectric coupling interfaces will add a degree of design freedom that allows for concurrent insertion loss reduction, return loss reduction, and maximum SNR enhancement. Intermediate fractal multi-layers such as the percolation layer that are expected to enhance SNR performance, smooth port parameters over bandwidth, and reduce high sensitivities due to high ...

  9. Innovative Approaches to Increased Power and Efficiency in Components for X-Band Radar for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: MDA04089

    The proposed research will investigate, develop and test an optimized FNF technology and its associated devices with integrated matching networks, optimally matched to radar system feed networks over the entire operational frequency band.. This research is will be the basis for the development of a simplified and facilitated installation of FNF devices in the existing radar systems due to adequat ...

  10. Development of Advanced Radar Technologies for Missile Defense

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: MDA05032

    The Fractal Noise Filter (FNF) has been demonstrated to filter Linear Frequency Modulated (LFM) waveforms from noise thus increasing the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Further research is required to fully understand and develop the FNF device. This device is low cost, completely passive and self-contained. Its underlying principles of operation are based on electromagnetic near field interactions. ...
