  1. Agent-based Knowledge-design Assistant (AKA) Technology for Computer Network Defense (CND)

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: MDA03050

    The proposed technology will provide runtime knowledge management and discovery for Computer Network Defense (CND) and other applications. Proposed innovations entail a convergence of research developments now in progress: the Work-Centered Interface Computer Network Defense (WCI-CND) and the Agent-based Knowledge-design Assistant (AKA). The WCI-CND is a multi-agent knowledge system for dynamic ...

  2. Technologies to Improve Software Acquisition/Development Process

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA04034

    The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) does not currently have an automated, centralized database to store Rad-Hardening (Rad-Hard) vendor data and corresponding test results. Portions of this data are currently stored in a spreadsheet, without consistency, distributed access, robust data search, filtering, or reporting capabilities. These data are not readily available to the developers of mission-crit ...

  3. IFICS Data Processing for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

    SBC: System Technology Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA04088

    The contractor proposes to design, build and test a Predictive Maintenance Unit (PMU). The PMU is modular maintenance product that detects hardware failures before they happen and cause a mission failure or loss of hardware availability. PMU applies to the maintenance function the same signal processing technology used by advanced ground based sensors and missile seekers for the purpose of detect ...

  4. Innovative Ways to Streamline Scenario Generation Across a System of Systems M&S Enterprise

    SBC: 1st Edge, LLC            Topic: MDA16006

    The strategic planning and creation of test scenarios for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) All Digital System Level Simulations and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) test events is a time-consuming challenge. As proven in Phase I, requirements-based scenario design will significantly benefit from rigor in the specification and control of common data sets. In addition, capturing the knowledge of subject ...

  5. Deployable Satcom Terminal for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

    SBC: Gatr Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04088

    A deployable communications terminal design has been demonstrated under the MDA Phase I SBIR. This design allows for multi-data communications at GMD locations for secure data transmission, as well as non-secure data transmission for “quality-of-life” communications and data flow. These systems may also serve as rapidly deployed and reliable backup networks in emergency situations. The operati ...

  6. Predictive Fault Detection for Unmanned Communications Facilities

    SBC: INSTRUMENTAL SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: MDA04064

    Communications systems depend on the health of their equipment and components to perform reliably over extended periods of time. Maintaining the health of equipment in remote, unmanned communications terminals is critical, because unscheduled repairs have significant impact on system availability. In Phase I of this SBIR project Instrumental Sciences, Inc. (ISI) researched methods to improve the e ...

  7. Advanced Scene Generation Techniques

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: MDA03003

    In Phase II of this project, we will build and demonstrate a COTS-based infrared scene generation system that utilizes multiple graphics processing units operating in parallel with pixel level timing synchronization. Current and future defense system technologies are being designed with performance characteristics and capabilities which make them challenging to adequately test in a hardware-in-th ...

    SBIR Phase II 2004 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA04173

    In Phase 1 of this SBIR program, we developed and delivered a small-format 320x256 dual-band infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) with pixel-registered and simultaneous imaging in the midwave and longwave infrared (MWIR/LWIR) spectral bands. In Phase 2, we will build on this and accomplish two major tasks. Our first goal is to dramatically increase both the pixel resolution as well as the pixel co ...

  9. High-Speed Simultaneous Multiple Object Detection System

    SBC: FREENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA16T006

    FreEnt Technologies, Inc., A2Z Innovations, Inc., and the University of Alabama Aerospace Research Center (UAH/ARC) have teamed together to design, develop, and perform ground-based-demonstrations of a High-Speed Simultaneous Multiple Object Detection (HS-SMOD) System for MDA. The HSSMOD system uses a simple but innovative technique of a passive fiber-optic grid and high-speed COTS opto-electronic ...

  10. State-Vector Density Functional Method for Kill Assessment

    SBC: FREENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA16001

    Measuring and characterizing the post-intercept states of a missile intercept event is critical for determination of interceptor effectiveness. System sensors including radar imaging infrared (IR), ultraviolet (UV), and visible wavelength sensors have been used to characterize these events. FreEnt has developed an innovative approach to post-intercept assessment based on mathematical formalisms su ...
