  1. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Missile defense takes place in an uncertain and dynamic environment, so multi-sensor fusion must be employed to aggregate and merge disparate data from the battlefield. However, the fusion process is hindered by the vast amount of uncertainty in operational contexts, such as imprecise measurements and varying environmental conditions. Various algorithms and fusion processes have been developed to ...

  2. Uncertainty Characterization Using Copulas (UC)2

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Boston Fusion, together with our teammate Syracuse University, propose a program of research and development, namely Uncertainty Characterization Using Copulas, which will lead to a parametric framework based on the statistical theory of copulas for modeling uncertainties in a centralized fusion architecture for the problem of target classification for ballistic missile defense applications. This ...

  3. Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: MDA13T001

    The proposed effort will develop a new approach to characterize and analyze multiple-sensor decision making under uncertainty. The major focus will be on the decision architecture involving multiple Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) elements and the evaluation of the performance of various decision architectures for ballistic missile object discrimination. The proposed method will provide a well-d ...

  4. Micro-Particle Debris Characterization from Hyper-Velocity Impacts

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: MDA13T002

    An ultra-high speed visible and near-infrared (VNIR) hyperspectral radiometric temperature imager will be developed in this program. The instrument is based on a high speed hyperspectral imager spanning the wavelength range 0.4-0.9 micron and providing hyperspectral data-cubes at rates of 13,500 Hz or faster. The high speed spatial imagery provides trajectory information to determine size and spe ...

  5. Intelligent Simulation Techniques for a Realistic, Unified Command and Control Training System (INSTRUCTS) for Missile Defense

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T005

    Given a specific window of opportunity for an incoming threat, the central Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) operator must dynamically manage the battle to achieve global and regional mission objectives. Seconds matter in these situations, and the C2BMC operator must be well versed in all potential scenarios, so that his actions are both quick and decisive. Currently, ...

  6. Phased Array Beam Steering for High Power Lasers

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T008

    To enable new directed energy systems which are much lighter, smaller and more efficient, new types of optical phased array beam steering are required. In this Phase I STTR, Triton Systems teamed with our academic partner, will demonstrate a new family of reflective phase modulation elements based on recent advances with a new electro-optic material which has been shown to add dynamic tunability ...

  7. Modeling Operator Reasoning and Performance for Human-in-Control Simulation (MORPHIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    Propose development of a human-in-control (HIC) modeling capability that can: (1) represent the breadth of operator decision-making processes across missile defense elements, (2) scale to deliver the appropriate level of fidelity, and (3) be extensible to future operator needs. To provide this HIC modeling capability, we propose to develop and evaluate a full-scope prototype of Modeling Operato ...

  8. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T006

    The first sentinel of ABL’s present target acquisition suite is a passive infrared search and track sensor of 1970s vintage, which we propose replacing with HyPAWS. HyPAWS is a low-cost passive wide-field of view staring sensor. Several such units suffice to provide full 360-degree view coverage. Leveraging revolutionary sensing techniques in ongoing development, HyPAWS offers advanced detect ...

  9. Innovative Solid Rocket Motor Design for Insensitive Munitions

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA06T004

    It is proposed to investigate an innovative mitigation technique for insensitive munitions through a new rocket motor case design. The proposed study will focus upon developing a motor case with sympathetic responses to unplanned thermal stimuli. This particular motor case design will be according to current operating mission parameters for a specific MDA rocket booster.

  10. A lightweight infrastructure for detection and mitigation of insider threats in distributed environments

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA06T009

    The insider threat remains one of the most difficult to detect -- left alone to mitigate -- threats against information systems. The overall objective of the effort (Phase I and Phase II) is to produce and prototype a Distributed Insider Threat Detection System (DITDS) for distributed environments, capable of identifying and quantifying emerging insider threats against the network, allowing for t ...
