  1. Autonomous navigation through small, confined spaces

    SBC: Greensight Agronomics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    GreenSight Agronomics (GSAg) is proposing to develop a man-portable, fully autonomous aerial mapping system to satisfy the goal of the solicitation: quickly and completely mapping a confined space with no human guidance. The vehicle will have a 400 mm frame size to provide an ideal balance between maneuverability, flight time, and payload capacity. We have chosen the Pixhawk platform running ArduP ...

  2. Materials Engineering of Alkali Halide and Rare Earth Halide Scintillators

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA182007

    Scintillators are the major components of radiation detection systems used in identification of Special Nuclear Materials.One of their key properties is the energy resolution (ER) that links directly to isotope identification capabilities.Typically the ER for scintillators varies from 3% (at 662 keV, FWHM) for the best materials to more common 6-7%.At the moment, many detectors use latter material ...

  3. Innovative Materials Engineering and Growth of a High Performance and Low Cost Scintillator

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA182007

    The goal of this program is to produce radiation detector scintillators with enhanced-medium energy resolution of 2-3%, at costs approaching those of medium energy resolution detectors such as CsI.To achieve this goal, a two pronged approach will be pursued.First, we will employ materials engineering tools to improve the performance of an existing scintillator with superior attributes.Second, an i ...

  4. Alternative Signature Detectors for Long Range Nuclear Material Identification

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162003

    Increasing the distance for standoff detection of nuclear materials, beyond that capable with direct radiation detection, using alternative signatures, such as the concentration of ionization in the surrounding atmosphere, improves the ability to locate, track and monitor this material.Ionizing radiation generates free elections, ions, and exited states in the nearby atmosphere, even when the sour ...

  5. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Hypersonic Signatures

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T003

    The flight and environment conditions encountered by vehicles operating in the Mach 10 to 20+, or high hypersonic, regime are complex and difficult to model. Under such conditions, ablating heat shield material is entrained in the flow in the form of gases and particulates and reactive chemistry between atmospheric and ablating species creates a non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) environme ...

  6. Transparent Silicone Carbide Seeker Windows

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA17005

    The benefit to DOD is the ability to increase the performance capabilities of missile interceptors.The primary market for the proposed technology is for missile EO/IR windows and domes for seekers and interceptors for DOD prime contractors, which we estimate be more than $21,000,000.Other potential markets are body armor, windows for high power lasers, rugged widows for LIDAR for automobiles and a ...

  7. FishEye Intelligent Dynamic Data Logging

    SBC: FISHEYE SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: MDA17003

    The Phase II project combines existing innovative machine data collection with machine learning to create an Intelligent Dynamic Data Logging system that enables MDA to increase the volume of simulation executions to tens of thousands or more annually.Data logging is a foundational component of missile defense simulation but applies to other industries and markets.Examples include self-driving veh ...

  9. CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: DTRA182002

    In response to the DTRA182-002 solicitation, we propose CANTEAN: Cave and Narrow Tunnel Exploration and Navigation, a flying system that employs the use of low-SWaP sensors and processors using advanced algorithms for rapid navigation and mapping of unknown, subterranean areas as part of a heterogeneous team.Bio-inspired obstacle avoidance and navigation and the efficient exchange and merging of s ...

  10. Dual-Band Datalink Antenna System for BMD Assets (1000-483)

    SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA13006

    SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to design and develop an improved dual-band datalink antenna suite for various BMD platforms. We will leverage our validated Phase II X-band datalink antenna design, as well as our initial S-band datalink antenna design to refine and optimize a form-factor dual-band antenna suite for the guidance section of various BMD platforms. The proposed antenna suite is ...
