  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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, ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
