The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. State-Vector Density Functional (SVDF) Method for Kill Assessment

    SBC: FreEnt Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA16001

    Measuring and characterizing the post-intercept state of a missile intercept event is critical for determination of interceptor lethality and kill assessments (KA). A number of sensors (including radar and spectral and imaging sensors) have been used to characterize these events. FreEnt proposes an innovative approach to KA based on mathematical formalisms successfully employed in atomic and molec ...

  4. Intercept Debris Modeling for Non Hit-to-Kill Missile Engagements

    SBC: PeopleTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA16007

    The objective of the proposed effort is to develop an approach for fast-running modeling of intercept debris initial characteristics from non hit-to-kill (NHTK) missile defense engagements. The benefit of this capability is realistic debris truth modeling for NHTK engagements to support a variety of MDA element and Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Modeling & Simulation (M&S) frameworks and ...

  5. Modeling of the Attenuation Effects of the Ionosphere and Troposphere for Radio Frequency Application

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA16008

    Current environment models employed in MDA simulations are not configured to thoroughly evaluate the effects of the environment on radar performance. Also the current models are not coordinated to present a globally consistent environment picture and can be based on functions that have not been updated to take advantage of the environment models and databases that have become freely available in t ...

  6. Fast IMU Autonomus Alignment, Gyroscopic and Accelerometer Measurement Improvement by Input Reconstruction

    SBC: Aero Thermo Technology, Inc            Topic: MDA16012

    Navigation performance of Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) is governed by the accuracies of initial alignment, gyroscopic drift and in the presence of fast maneuvers by the settling time of gyroscopes and accelerometers. The proposed SBIR work is a re-visit of the autonomous calibration problem using Higher Order Sliding Mode (HOSM) control solutions. The HOSM approach allows the separation of c ...

  7. Physics-Enhanced Navigators for Un-Aided Inertial Measurement Units

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA16012

    Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc. (IS4S), with the Auburn University GPS and Vehicle Dynamics Lab (AU-Gavlab), will develop four complementary physics-enhanced navigation estimation algorithms. The Model-Based navigator combines the IMU measurements and actuator commands with a vehicle model. The Constraint-Based navigator applies artificial measurements during partially predictable periods o ...

  10. Optical Signature Modeling of Transmissive Materials

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA16018

    The purpose of this effort is to demonstrate the viability of algorithms for calculating the temperatures and optical (visible and infrared) signatures of objects (e.g., targets) containing transmissive and partially transmissive materials. Industry-standard codes such as the Optical Signatures Code (OSC) and OPTISIG assume that all materials are opaque, which can lead to substantial errors in the ...
