  1. QUARTERMASTER: Query and User-based Abductive Reporting Tool Enabling Responsive Multimodal Analysis of Simulated Technological Enterprise Records

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T003

    At the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), the system-wide approach to test engineering generates massive amounts of multi-dimensional data, which analysts explore to evaluate Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) configurations, engagement conditions, and target phenomena. Analyses are limited by time to construct each data query, technical knowledge, and size/complexity of the datasets and domain. T ...

  2. A Low-Code Hosting Environment For Virtual Embedded Hardware

    SBC: Embeddetech, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T007

    In this proposed effort, Embeddetech identifies its general-purpose ‘low-code’ platform architecture as the ideal architectural choice to support hardware virtualization, after extensive market research and experimental development. The architecture provides a flexible hosting environment for target code dynamically executing on multiple simulated processors, executing in real time. Each simul ...

  3. Trajectory Simulation using PSM

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA17T002

    Triton Systems, Inc., in collaboration with an academic partner, proposes to optimize a method for efficiently running federated simulations of atmospheric and orbital rocket flight. Our tool will be able to simulate large threat/interceptor events with fewer time steps at a given accuracy than current software. This will result in less storage requirements and significantly shorter computational ...

  4. MAVERICK II: Mixed-Automation Visualizer for Emerging Relationships & Insights in Complex Knowledge

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T001

    System-level simulations of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) generate extremely large quantities of highly multidimensional data, which analysts at the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) must explore and analyze to infer insights and relationships. Existing tools based on automated routine scripts are ill-equipped to handle the volume and complexity of these data, requiring piecemeal analysis ...

  5. Multisensory Interactive Data Analysis System (MIDAS)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T001

    The Multisensory Interactive Data Analysis System (MIDAS) is a revolutionary interactive and iterative system for data visualization, hypothesis generation, and hypothesis testing. It provides visualizations and sonifications of datasets under investigation to allow the user to explore relationships between parameters in the dataset and between data sets. MIDAS leverages the vast capabilities of t ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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, ...
