  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Advanced IC Design Techniques for the Prevention of Reverse Engineering of the Programmed Functionality in FPGAs

    SBC: Microelectronics Research Development Corporation            Topic: MDA06T008

    Military and space-application FPGAs are invaluable for improving defense capabilities and deployment schedules; however, they also create a potential vulnerability if their configuration code can be discerned or if they can be directly used in unauthorized systems. Modern IC debug and repair techniques, such as PICA and FIB, represent formidable attack tools, which when combined with other attac ...

  10. Composite Case Improvement for Solid Rocket Motor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA06T004

    It is proposed to develop, model, and demonstrate composite case materials with sympathetic responses to slow cookoff. In phase II, the proposed study will focus upon conducting subscale SCO testing on composite case materials and validate a physics based modeling and simulation tool. Subscale motor case dimensions will be analogue to a specific MDA rocket booster.
