  1. Fusion of IR and Radar for Enhanced Threat Recognition and Interception (FIRE-TRAIN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    The proliferation of sophisticated ballistic missile systems threatens the ability of the U.S. to project military power and defend its deployed forces, its allies, and possibly even the homeland. Adversaries continue to improve their ballistic missile technologies, and are expected to incorporate multiple warheads, countermeasures, and decoys. The AEGIS systemthe sea-based component of the U.S. b ...

  2. Feature-Aided RF/IR Track Correlation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    Missile tracking sensors such as radar and EO/IR are often called upon to track constellations of multiple closely spaced objects, and recognize pairs of matching tracks from each sensor"s view. The outcome of this track correlation process is crucial for missile defense interceptors, as any failure to identify matches with certainty, for example because of an excessive number of tracks associate ...

  3. IR/RF SPARK- IR/RF fusion using Stochastic Programming And Robust Kinematic features

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    SSCI and MIT team will approach a problem of fusing target data from sensor of different phenomenology using Probabilistic programming technology, Stochastic inference techniques based on Markov chain simulation, and Robust kinematic features. These methods will allow us to estimate the extend of information on metric, material, and kinematic properties of the observed low resolution targets av ...

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

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    As the United States makes strides in developing, testing, and deploying missile defense technology, the human element remains core to the integrated, layered ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) architecture. Human operators oversee the command and control at the system, component, and element level across a vast array of networked ground-, sea-, and space-based sensors and interceptors to eff ...

  6. A Pilot-Scale, High-Pressure, Biomass Slurry Pump

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Aerodyne Research Inc. (ARI) and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) propose to design a high- pressure slurry pump for the delivery of biomass solids into a high-pressure hydrothermal reactor for biofuel production. Biomass conversion techniques involving a hydrothermal phase have many advantages over other biomass conversion methods: they do not require the costly sugar release pre- ...

  7. High Capacity Sorbent and Process for CO2 Capture

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 16b

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR/STTR) project targets the development of a novel ultra-high capacity sorbents and technology for CO2 capture and separation from combustion-derived flue gas. In the US, coal-fired power plants represent about 42% of the electricity generated but contribute about 75% of the CO2 emissions. DOE is supporting development of sorbent technologies that will d ...
