  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. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    The terahertz wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum offers exciting and unique attributes for security imaging and secure broadband communications. However, THz signal generation is difficult and current applications are rare. Existing THz sources utilize large and expensive lasers operating in pulsed mode. Practical application of THz radiation requires the development of THz source techn ...

  6. Data Driven Prognostics (Hybrid Nano-scale/Microscale Composites for Deep Thermal Cycle Damage Resistance)

    SBC: Firehole Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Programs such as Airborne Laser and Space-Based Laser require highly mass efficient structures. Because of their high specific strength and stiffness this naturally leads to graphite fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) materials for many system components. In fluid storage tank applications GFRP laminates often develop microcracking when subject to cryogenic temperatures and/or stresses due to press ...

  9. Low Expansion Metallic Nanolaminate Replicated Mirrors with CTE Matched High Conductivity Graphite Fiber Reinforced Magnesium Mirror Substrate Structu

    SBC: METAL MATRIX CAST COMPOSITES, LLC (DBA M            Topic: MDA04T005

    Magnetron sputtering of "Invar-like" nanolaminates onto a pre-finished/figured mandrel is proposed to produce strong, stiff, damage tolerant, low CTE replicas. The structural substrate will be a high performance discontinuous graphite fiber reinforced Mg AZ31 metal matrix composite manufactured by pressure infiltration casting. MetGraf Mg composites have the following attractive attributes for s ...

  10. Stratospheric Electrical Environments Applicable To Photovoltaic Arrays On HAA Platforms

    SBC: LIGHTNING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04T008

    The objective of this program is to characterize the upper atmosphere electrical environment so that the effects of this environment on high altitude airships (HAA) and other platforms intending to operate in this environment can be determined, and protection methods developed. This includes transient luminous events (TLEs), such as red sprites and blue jets and their associated electrical propert ...
