  1. Multi-Classifier Target Identification (MCTID)

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: MDA05057

    Target identification for the boost and early ascent (BEA) phase, and the midcourse (MC) phase is one of the most challenging problems for the BMDS. The Multi-Classifier Target Identification project employs two synergistic classifier techniques - a probabilistic Bayesian Classifier and a deterministic Topological Classifier – to develop target classifications using weighted target features. Th ...

  4. HWIL Channel Simulator for Communication System Testing

    SBC: WELKIN SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: MDA05063

    Welkin Sciences (WS) proposes to develop the Configurable Link Test Set II (CoLTS II), an affordable hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) channel simulator designed specifically for MDA test programs. Like DTRA’s test sets, CoLTS II can distort real RF signals using the same disturbed propagation channel models found in COMLNK. The missile communication link for all MDA interceptors, must accommodate the ...

  5. Multiband Infrared Focal Plane Array for Seeker Applications

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: MDA06016

    Improved interceptor seeker capability to detect, identify, and discriminate re-entry vehicles (RV’s) from countermeasures at distances of hundreds of kilometers is critical for missile defense. Development of an advanced infrared seeker combining high-spatial resolution with multiband detection for spectral discrimination is desired for material identification and RV discrimination. The challen ...

  6. Optimization of Sensor Management/Sensor Registration

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06009

    To provide multiple layers of defense against increasingly complex threats, the heterogeneous sensors of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) must be carefully coordinated to make optimal use of their diverse capabilities. In particular, because information demands are tied to the timeline of various decision points in an engagement, and sensor dynamics impose limitations on the timing of ...
