  1. Nanosatellite Payloads for Tactical Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: SOCOM193001

    Systems & Technology Research (STR) proposes to design a nanosatellite payload in support of Warfighter ISR via Distributed Satellites (WISRDS), a radio frequency (RF) signals intelligence (SIGINT) solution to rapidly provide actionable information to special operations forces in the tactical theater from satellites in low Earth orbit. The payload consists of a wideband, tunable, miniature antenna ...

  4. Daytime Marker

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    There exists a challenge in observing laser designated targets in full daylight conditions for currently fielded near-infrared (NIR) laser designators. The visibility difficulty arises primarily from the significant background signal produced by the sun, which closely mimics the spectral signature of a blackbody . By extending the wavelength region in which laser designators/markers operate into t ...

  5. High Acceleration and Hypervelocity Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: OSD181001

    Gun-launched applications currently expose inertial measurement units (IMUs) to harsh acceleration, shock, and vibration environments. Furthermore, as they become smarter, they present tighter constraints on size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), while still requiring high levels of performance. New accelerometer technology must reduce SWaP-C while operating through high-g acceleration environmen ...

  6. Electro-optical Seeker

    SBC: CERANOVA CORPORATION            Topic: OSD181002

    Execution of long-range weapons capabilities reduces risk and affords greater warfighter protection. Core enabling technologies for hypersonic projectiles include high-strength lightweight materials, precision avionics, and novel designs. System demands include the ability to withstand both high accelerations (up to 50,000 Gs) and aerothermal shock. Detailed structural engineering and shock modeli ...

  7. Electro-optical Seeker

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD181002

    Mission times for high velocity projectiles (HVP) are very short and detection and discrimination of targets must happen quickly and decisively. One way to achieve this is through the enhanced contrast resulting from polarized sensing, which tends to highlight manmade objects and suppress natural background clutter. Thermal polarimetric sensing in a small package has been demonstrated already but ...

  8. Low-Cost, Transmit-Only, Active Electronically Steered Array (AESA) with Phase-Only Nulling (1000-471)

    SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SCO182002

    SI2 proposes to leverage prior Government funded efforts to develop a transmit (TX) only, wideband (6:1 bandwidth), low-cost, scalable active electronically scanned array (AESA) that will utilize phase-only nulling to enable radar, Electronic Warfare / Electronic Attack (EW/EA), Information Operations (IO) and other capabilities on multiple platforms across DOD agencies. The array will employ digi ...

  9. Maritime/Systems & Technology Research

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: SCO182008

    Airborne radars operating over open water must classify maritime vessels by measuring and exploiting highly-variable radar signatures. Sources of signature variability include within-class ship construction and equipment differences, complex in-situ 6-DoF ship motion caused by ocean waves across a range of sea state conditions, acquisition geometry including grazing angle and maritime-specific RF ...

  10. Secure Private Neural Network (SPNN)/Charles River Analytics Inc.

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SCO182009

    Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are becoming widely used in the DoD for image classification, but recent research has shown DNNs are vulnerable to adversary attacks. Adversaries can monitor the DNN training and classification processes to learn attributes of the training data and the DNN. With this information, an adversary can gain valuable insight into the potentially sensitive data used to train th ...
