  1. Physics Based Modeling of Hydrometeor/ Aerodynamic Interactions due to Ballistic Missiles Radomes

    SBC: AQUILA LABORATORY, LLC            Topic: MDA06T013

    Hydrometeor impact/erosion qualification evaluations of aerospace vehicle components have to relate testing carried out in ground test facilities to what the components experience in the flight environment. The size distribution and condition of the hydrometeors that impact the surface of a radome can differ substantially from what they are in the natural environment before encountering a missile ...

  2. Innovative Technologies Supporting Affordable Increases in Power, Efficiency, and Bandwidth for Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) X-Band Radars

    SBC: Group4 Labs, LLC            Topic: MDA06T012

    This Phase-I STTR MDA Proposal proposes the use of a new class of diamond-seeded solid-state material system for the manufacture of virtually all heat-generating solid-state electronics in X-band and Ballistic Missile Defense radar components and systems. In this proposal wherein much preliminary (DARPA- and MDA-funded) work has been demonstrated hitherto by the authors, all or most of the basic s ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 1

    On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...

  7. Novel Structure-Preserving Algorithms for Accurate Rocket Trajectory Propagation

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA17T002

    The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...

  10. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: ALPHASTAR TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: MDA17T004

    The Ground-Based Interceptor (GBI) missile is the weapon component of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system that consists of a rocket booster and kinetic kill vehicle. Recently, MDA has sought technologies to improve the performance of the booster vehicle (BV). To date, studies have shown that reductions in weight have a direct impact on overall effectiveness. The current proposal aims t ...
