  1. Algorithm Performance Evaluation with Low Sample Size

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA20C001

    The team of Signature Research, Inc. and Michigan Technological University will develop and demonstrate methods and metrics to evaluate the performance of machine learning-based computer vision algorithms with low numbers of samples of labeled EO imagery. We will use the existing xView panchromatic dataset to demonstrate a proof-of-concept set of tools. If successful, in Phase II, we will extend t ...

  2. Solid Propellant Infrared Reduction At Launch (SPIRAL)

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: MDA20T001

    During the proposed Phase I research and development effort, the project team will use analysis and hot-fire testing to establish the feasibility of an approach to solid propellant formulation that greatly reduces the exhaust Infrared (IR) signature of the rocket motor while maintaining the thrust-to-mass-ratio of the existing, baseline solid propellant. The project team will formulate an array of ...

  3. Bio-inspired Autonomous Neuromorphic Detector for Identification and Tracking (BANDIT)

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: MDA20T003

    Biological vision systems capture and process extremely complex environments with high accuracy. Whereas conventional imaging systems require large amounts of memory and power to run, bio-inspired systems can maintain performance while reducing the size, weight, and power requirements. In this project, Areté proposes the development of a fully bio-inspired vision system for missile detection and ...

  4. Bio-inspired Sensors

    SBC: Quantum Ventura, Inc.            Topic: MDA20T003

    We are proposing to develop Neuro-IR Tracker, a system design for a bio-inspired sensor optimized to detect hypersonic missile targets. In Phase 1, we will design and assess the feasibility of a novel bio-inspired sensing system which includes Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) microbolometer imager (MMI), brain-inspired image processor and realtime software detection tools. We will estimate ...

  5. Autonomous Missile Detection Using Bio-Inspired Sensors

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: MDA20T003

    Attollo is proposing a read-out integrated circuit (ROIC), detector, and camera that will leverage a bio-inspired approach to seeing and processing a threat detection image. Processing only change detection within the Field of View (FOV) will save in transmission and processing of the sensor data reducing latency while also improving threat detection. Attollo will hybridize our Strained Layer Supe ...

  6. Compact, Transportable Racetrack Cyclotron for Heavy-Ion Radiation Testing of Electronics

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA20T005

    There is a growing need to study the effects of radiation in space and during high-altitude flights on electronic systems. The ever increasing need for ground based testing has outstripped the supply of available accelerator facilities at which to perform this testing. In response to this problem, RadiaBeam, along with collaborators at Michigan State University and Particle Accelerator Corporation ...

  7. Eye-readable Solution-based Dye Displacement Probe for Large-area Detection of Opioids

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Bowling Green State University, proposes to develop a field-rugged, eye-readable indicating spray solution that can immediately detect synthetic opioids over a large area of contamination (i.e., military vehicles, individual protective equipment, clandestine labs, etc.). The proposed chemosensor in a spray solution format will detect multipl ...

  8. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  9. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA19T002

    The objective of this project is to develop a capability to model fracture of materials used in hypersonic vehicles that results from hypervelocity impact while exposed to extreme temperatures. Symplectic Engineering’s approach addresses this challenge at two levels. At the computational level, a Relaxed Extended Finite Element approach is pursued to represent (possibly intersecting) fractures l ...

  10. Secure Environment for Cyber Resiliency Evaluation of Missile Defense Systems (SEC-MDS)

    SBC: Scalable Network Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T004

    Current methods of validating the cyber resiliency of missile defense systems require testing of actual systems, which removes them from operation and subjects them to potentially damaging effects. Cyber ranges can be used as an alternative, but they are limited in scale, costly, time-consuming to configure and have limited capability to model wireless tactical networks and their inherent vulnerab ...
