  1. Revolutionary Data Presentation and Manipulation (REVOLT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T001

    Successful missile defense is critical to the security of the United States, its deployed forces, and its allies. Across numerous simulations, tests, and operational scenarios, the Government amasses large quantities of complex high-dimensional data describing missile defense outcomes. While Missile Defense Agency (MDA) analysts need to use this data to better understand and improve missile defens ...

  3. MAVERICK: 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. Novel Approaches for Eliminating Bias Drift in Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Copious Imaging LLC            Topic: MDA18T004

    The objective of this proposal is to eliminate reliance on integrated non-uniformity correction hardware in electro-optical/ infrared (EO/IR) sensors to reduce sensor size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), simplify maintenance and integration, and streamline mission continuity of operations. The Digital-pixel Readout Integrated Circuits (DROIC) is an enabling technology for future sensors built f ...

  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. 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 ...

  9. 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, ...

  10. Phased Array Beam Steering for High Power Lasers

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T008

    To enable new directed energy systems which are much lighter, smaller and more efficient, new types of optical phased array beam steering are required. In this Phase I STTR, Triton Systems teamed with our academic partner, will demonstrate a new family of reflective phase modulation elements based on recent advances with a new electro-optic material which has been shown to add dynamic tunability ...
