  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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.

  7. Radar Debris Algorithms and Models for Discrimination

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07T004

    We are proposing an innovative approach to sensor fusion and target recognition based on transductive inference with support vector machines. Our proposed algorithm will apply innovative discrimination to the fusion of sensor (feature) and contextual scenario information through the development of robust algorithms and software necessary to collect, process, and fuse information from multiple sour ...

  8. Miniaturized Thermoacoustic Cryocooler for Missile Defense Applications(1001-088)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    The U.S. military envisions a range of cryocooler systems that can enable specific operational requirements. For missile defense applications, Triton is targeting cooling of infrared focal plane arrays (FPA) in optics which address surveillance, missile threat warning systems and missile seeker systems in general. Triton Systems Inc proposes to develop thermal management solutions for space elec ...
