  1. Development of a Terahertz Typing Toolkit for Interceptor Kill Assessment

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09034

    A successful intercept of a missile by a kinetic energy kill vehicle initiates a complex sequence of events and associated observable signatures that occur over a very wide range of temporal, spatial, and spectral scales. The signatures contain important information on the lethality of the intercept and on the contents of the warhead (nuclear, biological, or chemical). The program objective is to ...

  3. Advanced Spectral Signature Models for Rocket Plumes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09032

    The design of space-based optical sensors for detection, identification, and tracking of threat missile launches relies heavily on plume signature simulation models. The development of very capable plume signature models traces back ~50 years. However, because of the complexity of the underlying physics and ever-increasing requirements for improved accuracy and speed, higher spatial resolution, a ...

  4. Ultra Wideband Advanced Antenna Systems for Air Vehicles (1000-198)

    SBC: SI2 TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N091041

    SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes to design and develop a multifunction conformal antenna system for UHF Flight Termination System (FTS), L-band Global Positioning System (GPS), and S-band Telemetry applications for the SM-3 family of missiles and other platforms. To reduce the depth of protrusion, axial length, and weight of the multifunction antenna while maintaining wide bandwidth and high ...

  5. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  6. High-Speed Three-Channel Photonic Time Delay Unit

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative, super-miniature, fast-switching array-based photonic time delay device is being developed for the active electronically scanned-array (AESA) MDA and Navy radars. The design is based on the fast electro-optic effect, the super miniature fiber-lens collimation array, and the existing WDM photonic true time delay technologies. In Phase I Agiltron has successfully demonstrated the core ...

  8. Resource Allocation using Market-Based Optimization (RAMBO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Missile defense takes place in a dynamic, uncertain environment. Multi-raid attacks threaten to overload sensor capabilities, leaving fewer sensor resources free to observe each target complex. Moreover, the shift in emphasis toward early intercept, coupled with the growing importance of short- and medium-range threats, reduces the time available for detection, tracking, and discrimination, becaus ...

  9. Unified Control-Theoretic Multi-Raid Sensor Management Algorithms

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA10002

    Detecting, localizing, identifying, tracking, and intercepting multiple and dispersed missiles aimed at multiple and dispersed defended areas, presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. The Scientific Systems Company, Inc. team proposes a foundational, information-theoretic and controltheoretic approach. It is based on mathematically modeling a multiplatform-multisensor-multitarget s ...
