  1. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T006

    The first sentinel of ABL’s present target acquisition suite is a passive infrared search and track sensor of 1970s vintage, which we propose replacing with HyPAWS. HyPAWS is a low-cost passive wide-field of view staring sensor. Several such units suffice to provide full 360-degree view coverage. Leveraging revolutionary sensing techniques in ongoing development, HyPAWS offers advanced detect ...

  2. Adaptive camera to display mappings using computer vision

    SBC: POLAR RAIN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The video surveillance industry is experiencing dramatic change with the move from analog to digital video. Command centers need to have coordinated viewing of multiple camera feeds at one time, and the ability to switch automatically between feeds and display relevant patterns. Conventional security control rooms include a bank of monitors connected through a switch to an array of security camera ...

  3. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Missile defense takes place in an uncertain and dynamic environment, so multi-sensor fusion must be employed to aggregate and merge disparate data from the battlefield. However, the fusion process is hindered by the vast amount of uncertainty in operational contexts, such as imprecise measurements and varying environmental conditions. Various algorithms and fusion processes have been developed to ...

  4. Advanced Chemical Iodine Lasers

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The team of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Ohio State University (OSU) proposes to develop and test a novel method for electrical production of singlet molecular oxygen for application to an atomic iodine transfer laser. OSU has developed a supersonic,low pressure discharge and applied it to flows of nitrogen with efficient excitation of the gas. They propose to use this method that tailors th ...

  5. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Hypersonic Signatures

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T003

    Karagozian & Case, Inc. (K&C) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) will develop a re-usable, cost-effective, and accurate dynamic characterization methodology capable of measuring the dynamic material properties of various materials of interest under very high strain rates. Materials property data for various ductile materials (e.g., steel and aluminum) are required as input to f ...

  6. Advanced Data Fusion Using Bayesian Track-Before-Detect

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T003

    Dispersed sensors offer more information to tracking systems than a single sensor and this additional information should improve the performance. Typical approaches only use information from a single sensor to initialize tracks and then use measurements from other sensors to improve the track estimate. In a new approach, the PMHT will be enhanced to not only identify new track starts, but also sh ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Advanced Encryption Techniques for the Prevention of Reverse Engineering of the Programming Code in Military and Space Custom ICs and FPGAs

    SBC: MICROELECTRONICS RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06T008

    We propose the development of advanced encryption techniques to make integrated circuits more secure against unauthorized intrusion, specifically the use of innovative embedded techniques to make reprogramming of high performance deep sub-micron or nano-scale FPGA or custom ASIC systems by other than the intended recipient essentially impossible. The specific concerns addressed in this proposal r ...

  9. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: MILLENNIUM ENGINEERING AND INTEGRATION CO.            Topic: MDA06T011

    Millennium Engineering and Integration Company and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have teamed to propose development of an entirely new type of infrared detector that has the potential for providing significantly higher Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) detectivity for detector temperatures in the 180-300K temperature range than is presently available. This new detector exploits means of enhancing field em ...

  10. Advanced Optical System Technologies

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: MDA04T007

    Detection of missiles during the boost phase requires a sensor located on a high altitude forward deployed platform or on a spacecraft. Unlike a spacecraft, a forward deployed high altitude airship (HAA) or an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is relatively mobile and can be quickly deployed to areas of concern. For a single sensor to fit on a HAA or UAV, it must be compact, low-mass, and energy effic ...
