  1. 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 ...

  3. Cell Culture Approaches to Generating Brown Adipose Tissue for Autologous Transplantation

    SBC: ENERGESIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: A11aT034

    Obesity and its associated metabolic complications including diabetes are becoming increasingly prevalent in the general population as well as in military personnel. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a major site of energy expenditure through thermogenesis, which is mediated by the mitochondrial uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1). Studies in animals over the last 30 years as well as recent data in humans str ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. The OCEANS global UV-VIS-IR Ocean Background Model

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA09035

    Atmospheric effects, including the significant impact of ocean radiance, play a major role in remote sensing applications and the design of defense and surveillance systems. Tracking dim targets against a cluttered ocean background which is highly spatially and temporally varying is a particularly stressing scenario. Spectral Sciences, Inc. (SSI) proposes to develop and demonstrate a fast, robus ...

  7. Multi-tiered debris and clutter mitigation for BMD radar signal processors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA09018

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes a data-driven, multi-tiered, object-based approach to clutter and debris suppression during BMD engagements. Using models and signal processing innovations for clutter and debris developed during the Phase I program, improvements to the current and future generations of missile defense radars and sensors will be demonstrated and tested for effectiveness and ro ...

  8. Unified Interceptor Assignment Algorithms

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA09026

    Detecting, localizing, and intercepting one or more missiles during ascent phase presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn, MA, and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin, propose a foundational, control-theoretic approach to such problems. It is based on the idea of mathematically modeling a multiplatform-multisensor-multitarget system as SING ...

  9. Multi-Sensor Ascent Phase Track Correlation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA09027

    PSI proposes a development program targeting several significant advances in track correlation algorithms to address ballistic missile defense threats such as medium to large sized raids in the context of the C2BMC. These algorithms manage the cooperation and data fusion between multiple BMDS sensor elements during all phases of flight including the challenging ascent phase, and in highly resourc ...

  10. Track Correlation

    SBC: Princton Science, Inc. (Scitec, Inc.)            Topic: MDA09027

    The key to successful track correlation, and early intercept, is to discriminate between observations of multiple threats, eliminate false tracks, and characterize each threat prior to ingestion of angles-angles data into a tracking filter framework. SciTec"s novel approach to this challenge is to extract features that are available only during the boost phase, fuse these features with track data ...
