  1. Deep Inference and Fusion Framework Utilizing Supporting Evidence (DIFFUSE)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...

  2. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity nor having direct contact with the propellant. In Phase II, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging pr ...

  3. Memristor-CMOS Analog Co-Processor for Efficient Computation of PDEs

    SBC: SPERO DEVICES, INC.            Topic: ST15C002

    Spero Devices is proposing design of a memristor-CMOS co-processor to implement analog Discrete Fourier Transforms (DFTs). The analog co-processor invokes spectral methods to solve a class of linear and non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs) arising in the scientific simulation of complex systems. Current PDE solution methods are inefficient and often intractable due to limitations assoc ...

  4. Context-driven Active-sensing for Repair Tasks II (CART II)

    SBC: Dynamic Object Language Labs, Inc.            Topic: ST14B003

    Existing machine perception systems are too inflexible, and are not robust enough to environmental uncertainty. In existing systems, perception components are statically (and manually) configured to process sensor data. The parameters of components in such a system are also statically tuned to operate optimally under very specific conditions. Information flow in such systems is bottom up, and gene ...

  5. Development of Low Dark Current Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) Devices for Next Generation Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03T002

    Next generation EO/IR sensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II STTR Program plans to design, model and develop Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include eva ...

  6. Probabilistic and Relational Inferences in Dynamic Environments (PRIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST081004

    Uncertainty on the modern battlefield makes mission planning and decision making extremely complex for field commanders. Mission planners can be aided by initial and ongoing situation assessment, future state estimation, assessment of the current plan"s probability of success, what-if analysis, and suggestions for decisions. At present, few automated tools exist to provide mission planners with th ...

  7. High-Speed Three-Channel Photonic Time Delay Unit

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA08T012

    An innovative, super-miniature, fast-switching array-based photonic time delay device is being developed for the active electronically scanned-array (AESA) MDA and Navy radars. The design is based on the fast electro-optic effect, the super miniature fiber-lens collimation array, and the existing WDM photonic true time delay technologies. In Phase I Agiltron has successfully demonstrated the core ...

  8. Innovative Photonic Time Delay Units for Radar Applications

    SBC: S2 CORPORATION            Topic: MDA08T012

    We aim to build and demonstrate an innovative photonic true time delay solution which alleviates the fundamental problem of cascaded optical switches, and additionally offers several significant benefits. The device uses wideband spatial-spectral (S2) holographic optical memory materials to store and access several broadband time delay gratings. Broadband optical chirps are used to create these ti ...

  9. AlInN/GaN HFET over Free-Standing bulk GaN substrates

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T001

    SET, Inc. proposes to develop lattice-matched AlInN/GaN HFET structure on free-standing GaN substrate. By employing native low-defect GaN substrates and by using lattice-matched heterostructures with the incorporation of indium, we expect dramatic enhancement of these HFET in power density, reliability and high frequency operation. Homoepitaxial growth on native substrate and the use of AlInN/GaN ...

  10. Dynamically Tunable Metamaterial Filters(1001-455)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T009

    Triton, together with our academic and industrial partners, proposes to develop and fabricate dynamic filters based on metamaterials. These dynamic filters are being engineered to enhance the efficacy of focal plane arrays used in interceptor sensors, resulting in significant cost savings. The filter will offer a dynamically tunable pass band, which will reject stray light coming in off-wavelen ...
