  1. Adaptive, Efficient, and Agile Guidance for Ascent Phase Intercept

    SBC: Sysense Incorporated            Topic: MDA08T003

    The proposed effort will further refine the adaptive model-based estimation and control guidance law developed during the Phase 1 effort to work in a two-tier algorithm with an agile, game-theoretic guidance law that is immune to the acceleration of the target. The two-tier approach is used to bring the intercept vehicle close to the target while conserving fuel but still obtains good minimal mis ...

  2. Advanced Design Tools for Freeform Optics

    SBC: OPTICAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: MDA04T007

    Advanced optical systems play a pivotal role in military applications of interest to the Missile Defense Agency including advanced optical telescopes and imaging LADARs. Optics provides the eyes for surveillance, target detection and tracking. Therefore, improvements in optical design and fabrication are important targets for research and development. One significant improvement is the inclusio ...

  3. Advanced Passive and Active Sensors for Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: MDA08T004

    Raytheon Vision Systems (RVS) is developing a next generation, high-performance large-format HgCdTe FPAs for dual-band LWIR detection for the MKV Program. Increasing the format size of dual-band long-wavelength FPAs and tailoring the detector design for specific long-wavelength bands enables seekers to be designed for larger fields-of-view, longer target acquisition ranges, and improved accuracy ...

  4. Advanced Passive and Active Sensors for Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T003

    Effective future ballistic missile defense systems will be forced to discriminate between targets and decoys. To meet this requirement, ballistic missile interceptors must contain sensors which have imaging capability. SA Photonics is proposing a program to develop a pumped laser optical source for LIDAR-RADAR imaging applications specifically targeted for ballistic missile applications. The SA ...

  5. Advanced Passive and Active Sensors for Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: MDA08T004

    Nu-Trek is teaming with Arizona State University and Raytheon Vision Systems to develop a ROIC with on-chip data conversion. The ROIC uses Nu-Trek"s ultra low power ADC buffer, ADC core, and LVDS pre-driver. The ROIC is being developed for Raytheon"s Next-Gen, dual-band, IR FPAs. Three Nu-Trek innovations that will be implemented in the ROIC are the ultra low power successive approximation registe ...

  6. Advanced Radar Data Fusion

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06T003

    The TSC team proposes to develop a new generalized Space-Time Adaptive Processing (Generalized STAP) algorithm that discriminates among classes of scatterers. The new generalized formalism is applied to the problem of 3D ISAR imaging of the reentry vehicle (RV) or another object in the ballistic missile threat complex that suppresses radar dipole clutter, using multiple ground-based radars operat ...

  7. Advanced Radar Data Fusion

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06T003

    In Phase I, TSC and the University of Arizona developed a new generalized Space-Time Adaptive Processing (Generalized STAP) algorithm that discriminates among classes of scatterers that move on generalized space-time paths. The new formalism was applied to three-dimensional (3D) imaging of objects in the missile threat complex while suppressing radar dipole clutter by means of adaptive complex we ...

  9. Advanced Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: MDA07T004

    Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) and its research partner, University of Florida (UF), propose to update and implement theory, algorithms, and software for fusion of multi-sensor (e.g., RADAR and EO) datastreams, to provide enhanced acquisition, tracking, and discrimination of threat objects in a cluttered multi-target environment. We propose to enhance/extend our successful Phase-I technology to s ...

  10. Advanced Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA07T004

    Technology Service Corporation (TSC) and the University of Connecticut (UCONN) will develop a birth-to-death tracking concept that utilizes rotational information to improve track handover between: 1) forward-based radars, 2) mid-course ballistic missile defense tracking radars, and 3) the IR sensor on the kill vehicle. The proliferation of anti-simulation countermeasures has necessitated a multi ...
