  4. FIXATE: FIXational Automatic Target Extraction

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N14AT008

    During a mission naval UAS collect large volumes of data but only sub-sections of this data contain information relevant to the mission. In order to find the important information analysts must sift through ALL of the data. FIXATE is a biomimmetic object classification system to automatically pre-process the data and cue the operator to sections of data that are likely to contain important informa ...

  5. Multi-Modal Miniature Integrated Circuit Reporting Overall Status: MICROS

    SBC: Vivonics, Inc.            Topic: N14AT019

    Continuous monitoring of bioelectrical signals can provide valuable insight to subjects stress, fatigue, resilience, and overall health. A rugged, miniaturized, low-power integrated circuit that has the ability to detect a wide variety of signals using noncontact electrodes lends itself to a valuable platform for a wearable system to assess an individuals physical and mental status. We propose suc ...

  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, ...
