  1. Chemical and Laser Damage Resistant, High Performance AR Microstructures For DPALs

    SBC: TELAZTEC LLC            Topic: MDA11008

    Compact, efficient, mega-watt power level lasers are being developed by the MDA for the mission of destroying targets over a range of many hundreds of kilometers. A candidate laser technology with the promise of meeting this mission goal is based on alkali gas that is optically pumped by multiple, electrically driven diode lasers. One current problem limiting the potential operational lifetime o ...

  5. Water Effects Correction Software (WECS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA12020

    Infrared (IR) target scenes can suffer distortion from atmospheric species present along the atmospheric paths through which the signals are propagated, causing errors in derived target characteristics (e.g., position, velocity, angle). The main contributor to these errors is refraction of the signals by water, in its various forms (e.g., vapor, cloud, air-ice mix) along the path. Turbulence pheno ...

  6. Long Duration Zero Power Sensor Technology

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA08043

    Mide has developed a long duration zero power sensing technology. The technology has been designed to allow a system to continuously monitor itself when removed from hardwired power for several years. Mide has designed, built and tested prototypes in relevant environments. Mide proposes to use the resources of this Phase II effort to further mature the technology and reach a TRL of 8. Approved ...

  7. 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 ...
