  1. Laser Communication Systems for Geolocation and Attitude Determination

    SBC: CSA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T001

    The optical communication links between various orbiting satellites can serve as the cornerstone of an accurate attitude and geo-referencing scheme when 2 or more vehicles are engaged in laser communication. To date, most research studies into determining relative attitudes and positions between vehicles have involved using the global positioning system (GPS) which restricts the spacecraft format ...

  2. Metrology System for Freeform Optical Systems

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T006

    This is a Phase I proposal to develop an extremely versatile optical inspection tool to aid in the manufacture and assembly of freeform optical components such as biconics and Zernike surfaces that are not easily inspected with conventional interferometry. This relatively new class of optics can reduce aberrations, improve the optical performance, reduce system size and weight, and thereby lead t ...

  3. Laser Communications Based Navigation and Attitude Determination

    SBC: Microcosm, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T001

    In Phase I, Microcosm and John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), with Aster Labs, and HRP Systems, will develop and validate algorithms and performance simulations for using range and orientation data from onboard laser communications terminals for spacecraft navigation and attitude determination (LNAV). The principal use case to be explored is lasercom-only LNAV for an interconnected ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery Operation Model

    SBC: Global Aerospace Corporation            Topic: MDA07T007

    Global Aerospace Corporation (GAC), in collaboration with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), plans to develop a proof-of-concept, high-fidelity, first principle-based software model to predict the long-term behavior of advanced rechargeable lithium batteries in aerospace applications. This is a very challenging effort since we will be incorporating four behavior components into the battery op ...

  6. Radar Debris Algorithms and Models for Discrimination

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07T004

    We are proposing an innovative approach to sensor fusion and target recognition based on transductive inference with support vector machines. Our proposed algorithm will apply innovative discrimination to the fusion of sensor (feature) and contextual scenario information through the development of robust algorithms and software necessary to collect, process, and fuse information from multiple sour ...

  7. 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 ...
