  2. Wideband Sub-Array Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX) Development and Packaging

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA08028

    Next generation Radars (NGR) for MDA will advance closer to the ideal of a fully digitized array and digital beamforming. In a conventional phased array radar (PAR), analog beamforming networks reduce the entire array into a few combined beams (e.g., sum beam, difference beams) at X-band. Next generation PAR will use a hybrid approach, forming many subarray beams in analog, and then performing a ...

  3. Integrated UV/VIS/IR background phenomenology models for radiation transport system trades

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: MDA08032

    Computational Physics, Inc. (CPI) proposes to develop prototype first-principle cloud and terrain physics models integrated into a robust and extensible component architecture that facilitates the assessment of the impact of terrain and cloud radiance and irradiance in the UV/VIS/IR wavebands on missile defense systems. The prototype will also be used to demonstrate support for observational forec ...

  4. Discrimination


    The performance of the Ballistic Missile Defense System depends on a number of factors; one of the most important is the ability to accurately and efficiently discriminate between threats (reentry vehicles) and non-threats (decoys). The DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation (DAC) team proposes to develop a discrimination system based on a novel machine learning algorithm called Maximum Variance Unfoldin ...

  5. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA08001

    Wet installation of fasteners offers proven corrosion protection and fuel sealing in aircraft structures, but it''''s a labor-intensive, messy, hazmat-laden process whose quality can vary significantly from fastener to fastener. Under a Navy SBIR Phase II, SMRC has developed a proprietary process called QwikSeal® for pre-coating fasteners with cure-blocked sealant, then overcoating the pre-applie ...

  6. Global Missile Defense Battle Management

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: MDA08038

    Using our 50+ person-years of experience with business process (BP) modeling, BPEL, SOA, and HCI design, we propose a real-time battle management solution for MDA that will coordinate with multiple dispersed and disparate weapon platforms in achieving accurate and reliable kill results for layered Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD). The system will be designed to globally optimize weapon-target solut ...
