  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. High-Bandwidth, Extended Linearity, Reaction-Cancelled, High-Surface-Figure-Accuracy Fast-Steering Mirror for Future MDA Missions

    SBC: Left Hand Design Corporation            Topic: MDA10005

    Jitter suppression and image stabilization require an increasing number of technological improvements as vehicles become unmanned, more agile and work in more hostile environments. Fast steering mirrors (FSM) play an important supporting role in providing a quiet operating platform. LHDC has contributed a number of FSM for space platforms and plans to enhance performance of future products in fo ...

  7. Direct-to-Metal Bonding for Improved Thermal Performance of Lasers

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: MDA10006

    The most promising and scalable high-power laser geometries effectively manage thermal transfer from the laser crystal to the heat sink. While next generation crystals and pump geometries aim to eliminate waste heat in the first place, it will always be the case that efficient removal of heat will be paramount for further power scaling. When powers reach the kilowatt level, in an area about the ...

  9. Compact, Ultra- Narrow-Bandwidth, High-Power Diode Laser Pumps for Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: MDA10007

    The diode pumped alkali laser (DPAL) allows for a potentially scalable approach towards a MW-class high energy laser system. By using an alkali vapor gain medium, one overcomes the intrinsic thermo-optical limitations of more conventional diode-pumped solid state laser (DPSSL) media. High spectral brightness diode pump sources are proposed as the enabling element for efficient, kW-class DPAL sys ...

  10. Novel, High-Power, Pump-Signal Fiber Combiner

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA10008

    Recent advances in fiber lasers have shown their potential for power scaling to Directed Energy levels. Many of the high-power, cladding-pumped, large-mode-area fiber systems demonstrated in the laboratory have employed free-space optics to couple the diode laser pump power into the pump cladding of the fiber. While the approach is useful for power scaling demonstrations, it is not practical for ...
