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. Decision Algorithm for PIA

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA16-001

    The MDA system receives information from multiple sensors in the system architecture that may observe an intercept event. The proposal addresses the type of information that sensors should provide and a decision scheme that combines potentially conflicting information, arriving asynchronously, with different level of confidence. The system has a short time to decide whether reengage the target f ...

  2. Bayesian Inference Techniques to support System-Level Post-Intercept Assessment (BPIA)


    In this Phase I SBIR, Daniel H. Wagner Associates will construct a high-level, physics-based, probabilistic model of an anti-ballistic missile intercept event, characterizing and integrating various sensor phenomenologies from a probabilistic perspective; and we will develop multi-sensor data fusion techniques to estimate the effectiveness of the engagement. Our approach will emphasize Bayesian in ...

  3. System-level Post Intercept Assessment

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: MDA16-001

    When targeting an enemy threat, it is very important to know how effective the intercept was so as to make decisions on how to proceed. Pre-intercept information may be subject to uncertainty or accuracy considerations, meaning that a pre-intercept effectiveness assessment should be refined by post-intercept sensor data. Toyon Research Corporation and Modern Technology Solutions, Inc. (MTSI) propo ...

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

    SBC: FreEnt Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA16-001

    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 ...

  5. High-Resolution Measurement Techniques for High Explosive Internal Pressure and Temperature for Lethality Assessment

    SBC: CORVID TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA16-002

    Corvid Technologies will develop in-situ instrumentation to measure key physical states in reacting high explosives. The emerging measurement capability will provide state information to support lethality analysis by enabling equation of state development for computational models, as well as fast-running engineering codes for evaluating HE response to stimuli. Development of internal temperature ...

  6. Standardized Atmosphere Generator (SAG) for Inline Environment Generation

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA16-003

    We intend to dramatically improve the performance of the Standardized Atmosphere Generator (SAG), an environmental background model used to characterize the atmospheric state. SAG combines multiple empirical models, including NRL-MSISE-00, URAP, NRL climatology, AFGL atmospheric profiles, SNOE databases, the International Reference Ionosphere, and photochemical and empirical models developed by S ...

  7. Synthetic Inline Generation of Modeled Atmosphere

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: MDA16-003

    To address the MDAs need for an innovative, low-cost process to perform inline environment generation for real-time hardware-in-the-loop testing and constructive digital simulations, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Synthetic Inline Generation of Modeled Atmosphere (SIGMA) system based on deep modeling and GPU acceleration. The innovation in using multi-layer stacked dee ...

  8. Database and Numerical Procedures for Extending the Spectral Range Of Plume Signature Codes

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA16-004

    Over many data collection campaigns, a large number of propulsion related signature events have been observed across an extended range of the electromagnetic spectrum. The current suite of plume modeling tools contains the basic framework for flowfield and signature generation, but lacks the underlying physical mechanisms and supporting property databases to properly account for alternate waveband ...

  9. Ground-based Characterization of High Altitude Plume-Signature Phenomenology to Advance the Capabilities of SOCRATES-P

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: MDA16-004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to utilize a ground-based simulation facility based upon its patented FAST technology to obtain critical data necessary to validate and extend the capabilities of the MDAs high altitude plume code: SOCRATES-P. Far-field plume signatures arise from the hyperthermal interaction of rocket plume effluent with the atmosphere at altitudes greater than 100 km. In P ...

  10. SilverlineM&S

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: MDA16-005

    Modeling and Simulation (M&S) systems are often composed of complex hardware and software components to meet the technical demands of the simulations. M&S systems may include real-time, embedded, hardware-in-the-loop, or other specialized hardware components, many of which are distributed over a wide geographic area. Additionally, their computational power, mixed with the proprietary nature of the ...
