  1. Forecasting IR Satellite Imagery for Adaptive Sensor Tasking

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA07033

    Accurate forecasts of infrared satellite imagery are needed to optimize tasking of valuable and limited space borne surveillance assets. Atmospheric constituents such as clouds, aerosols, and water vapor can negatively impact the ability of IR surveillance systems to monitor activities on the ground. Due to their chaotic nature, atmospheric impacts are particularly severe for applications that r ...

  2. Nano-Enabled Broadband Infrared Anti-Reflection Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07001

    In this program, Agiltron and the group of Professor D. W. Wang at Boston College propose a novel nano-porous coating for next generation MDA IR anti-reflection (AR) coatings for detectors and optics. The collaborative research leverages recent progress in nano-material development at Boston College, and Agiltron’s recently developed nano-coating processes. The proposed IR AR coatings will posse ...

  3. High-Performance Dual-Band MWIR/LWIR Uncooled Imager for ABL IRST Sensors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Based upon the successful dual-band MWIR/LWIR imaging results demonstrated with our uncooled photomechanical imaging technology in Phase I, Agiltron proposes a high-performance uncooled dual-band imager for the IRST sensors used in the ABL Wide Area Surveillance System (WASS) in Phase II. To meet the needs of the MDA, the proposed imager will feature simultaneous dual-band MWIR/LWIR operation for ...

  4. High Performance Resonator Fiber Optic Gyro Made of Air Core Fiber

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07052

    Agiltron proposes an innovative resonant fiber optic gyro (RFOG) based on air-core optical fiber achieving high performance, compact size, lightweight and low fabrication cost. The proposed gyro uniquely combines the advantages of high finesse of a ring laser gyro (RLG) and the advantages of long optical path and miniature package of interferometer fiber optic gyro (IFOG). Critically, the utilizat ...

  5. Near-IR Enhanced CMOS Sensor for LADAR Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA07032

    Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), in collaboration with Harvard University and Raytheon, proposes to develop a silicon-based focal plane array with single-photon responsivity at 1064-nm, with the goal of creating next-generation LADAR receivers. This Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed idea by improving the near-infrared (NIR) single photon efficiency of RMD’ ...

  7. Carbon Nitride Films for High Power Density Capacitors

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems will develop high efficiency/high temperature Carbon-Nitride films to meet the design objectives of high energy density capacitors (HEDC) for energy storage in pulsed power systems (>15MJ/kg). Phase I will fabricate samples of film for dielectric analysis. The dielectric properties of these materials will be evaluated using the most advanced computational techniques available. Initia ...

  10. Hybrid Neural Network/Knowledge Base Automated Classification System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design a hybrid neural network and knowledge base automatic classification system which dynamically constructs an optimal decision tree. Our proposed hybrid system offers several advantages. Expert system knowledge bases will be used to construct the decision hierarchy with neural network modules acting as classifiers at the nodes of the tree. Neural networks such as Fuzzy ARTMAP can ...
