  1. Advanced Design Tools for Freeform Optics


    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 ...

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


    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 ...

  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 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 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 ...
