  1. Forecasting IR Satellite Imagery for Adaptive Sensor Tasking

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA07033

    Accurate forecasts of infrared satellite imagery are needed to optimize tasking of valuable and limited space borne surveillance assets. Atmospheric constituents such as clouds, aerosols, and water vapor can negatively impact the ability of IR surveillance systems to monitor activities on the ground. Due to their chaotic nature, atmospheric impacts are particularly severe for applications that r ...

  2. Nano-Enabled Broadband Infrared Anti-Reflection Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07001

    In this program, Agiltron and the group of Professor D. W. Wang at Boston College propose a novel nano-porous coating for next generation MDA IR anti-reflection (AR) coatings for detectors and optics. The collaborative research leverages recent progress in nano-material development at Boston College, and Agiltron’s recently developed nano-coating processes. The proposed IR AR coatings will posse ...

  3. High Performance Resonator Fiber Optic Gyro Made of Air Core Fiber

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07052

    Agiltron proposes an innovative resonant fiber optic gyro (RFOG) based on air-core optical fiber achieving high performance, compact size, lightweight and low fabrication cost. The proposed gyro uniquely combines the advantages of high finesse of a ring laser gyro (RLG) and the advantages of long optical path and miniature package of interferometer fiber optic gyro (IFOG). Critically, the utilizat ...

  4. Near-IR Enhanced CMOS Sensor for LADAR Imaging

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA07032

    Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), in collaboration with Harvard University and Raytheon, proposes to develop a silicon-based focal plane array with single-photon responsivity at 1064-nm, with the goal of creating next-generation LADAR receivers. This Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed idea by improving the near-infrared (NIR) single photon efficiency of RMD’ ...

  5. Aerodynamic Drag and Lift Characteristics for Irregularly-Shaped Intercept Fragments

    SBC: AVID LLC            Topic: MDA07016

    The focus of this proposal is the aftermath of a successful missile intercept, where the resulting fragments fall toward land or sea. This study will develop an approach to quantify shape parameters in a useful way to feed to a designed algorithm set governing lift and drag. The goal will be to enable trajectory analysis based upon lift and drag characteristics. Driving parameters such as the s ...

  6. Distributed Aperture Radar Signal Processing Algorithms, Waveforms, and Signal Processing

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA07037

    The goal of this Phase I SBIR effort is to develop innovative techniques that exploit distributed apertures to defeat mainlobe jammers of MDA radar systems. Phase I will develop basic concepts for distributed aperture signal processing in this domain and establish their feasibility using a computer simulation model. A Phase II demonstration plan will be developed, with emphasis on a near real-time ...

  7. LANguage Conversion Engine (LANCE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07005

    From 1987-1997, DoD required Ada for every software project where new code generation was more than 30% of the effort. With the decline in Ada’s popularity, it has become increasingly difficult to find skilled Ada developers to maintain this legacy code. Code maintainers that don’t know Ada typically convert the code to a language they understand and this is a tedious error-prone process. What ...

  8. Optimized Planning for Threat Interception using Markets for Uncertainty Management (OPTIMUM)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07045

    Emerging threats and technologies have significantly increased the requirements for successful battle management and fire control in ballistic missile defense applications. The growing interdependencies between weapons and sensor systems demand defensive planning tools that integrate weapon allocation with sensor management, and problems such as inventory management and weapon-to-target assignment ...

  9. First-Principles Earthshine and Skyshine Models

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: MDA07017

    Earthshine and skyshine illuminate missiles and space-based sensors. It is important to quantitatively understand their contribution to the incident infrared, visible, and ultraviolet irradiance on missiles and sensors to be able to assess their impact on the missile defense mission. Computational Physics, Inc. (CPI) proposes to develop and demonstrate an architecture capable of hosting a first- ...

  10. Advanced Data Association and Predictive Tracking (ADAPT)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: MDA07046

    A high-quality SIAP is the essential foundation of effective air defense, reliable combat identification and is the key to exploiting advanced offensive capabilities. To develop an effective SIAP, the tracking and fusion algorithms must overcome real-world challenges such as high target density, heterogeneous data sources, and communication bandwidth requirements. The DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporatio ...
