  1. Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Integrated Vibration Attenuation

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA13T007

    The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of remaining stable under temperature and moisture changes, while isolating the precision optical array from vibrations such as engine noise and air turbulence. By integrating a customizable periodic stack in the bench, vibrations are attenuated more effectively than commercially available mounts. Additionally, the periodic ...

  2. Robust Classification through Deep Learning and Dynamic Multi-Entity Bayesian Reasoning

    SBC: ExoAnalytic Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Missile defense faces the challenges of rapidly maturing and evolving complex threats, possessing capabilities which require the use of all available resources to successfully detect, track and identify the lethal objects. Future performance will rely on multiple sensors such as ground and sea based radars and electro-optical and infrared sensors for target recognition. It is crucial to develop a ...

  3. Decision Making under Uncertainty

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Our proposed second order uncertainty (SOU) product is a decision making software solution that addresses the problem of providing accurate and precisely defined decision courses of action (COAs) of complex, time-constrained problems in a fraction of the time required by alternative methods striving to achieve the same level of precision. Complex decision situations can deal with large volume of ...

  4. Interactive Sensor Fusion for Context-Aware Discrimination

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T001

    We propose a novel computational framework for discrimination that incorporates sensor data from observations of the engagement and from kill assessment (KA) that such sensors can provide. The KA information is combined with data from other sensors to improve the discrimination decision and to reduce the probability of correlated shots. Approved for Public Release 16-MDA-8620 (1 April 16)

  5. Decision Making under Uncertainty

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    The objectives of our Phase I effort are to characterize target sensor measurement uncertainties and feature extraction uncertainties; determine how and where, in the processing chain, these affect target discrimination and classification; show how the different sources of uncertainty lead to the cumulative uncertainty in the final decision; provide techniques that will be instrumental to optimizi ...

  6. Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Vibration Attenuating Properties

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA13T007

    Airborne optical benches must provide high levels of stability to ensure the mission success of sensitive optical equipment. Optical structures used in high altitude Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) platforms must remain especially robust due to the significant environmental changes between ground level and high altitudes. The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of r ...

  7. High-Precision Phased Array Beam Steering Using Enhanced MEMS Mirrors

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T008

    The goal of this project is to develop a robust, compact, light-weight Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) - based subsystem for fine pointing of high power laser phased arrays. This will facilitate the use of airborne high-energy laser weapons systems for ballistic missile defense. The principal innovation to be introduced is an array of enhanced MEMS mirrors that permit very high resolution ...

  9. Intelligent RF-IR Data Fusion using Artificial Intelligence Techniques

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    The ultimate goal of this proposed effort is to better utilize disparate sensor data to perform better correlations and lethality assessments through the development of a sensor data fusion system using artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and the concept of extracting features from raw sensor data and reasoning about those features and their hypothetical association with hypothesized objects. ...

  10. RF/EO Track Correlation and Characterization (RETC2)

    SBC: ExoAnalytic Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    In order to counter emerging threats from the Middle East and Southeast Asia, the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is acquiring new sensor (e.g. AN/TPY-2 and PTSS type) and weapon technology (SM-3). As these new technologies are fielded, the BMDS's Command, Control, Battle Management and Communication (C2BMC) component must be able to correlate objects between multiple sensors. Inher ...
