  1. High sensitivity, 1.06 um ladar photoreceivers with micro digitized pixels

    SBC: Epitaxial Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA04038

    This Phase II SBIR project will develop 1064-nm true single photon counting, semiconductor ladar photoreceivers for enhanced ABL and EKV resolution and engagement range, which will significantly increase their hit-to-kill capability with reduced size, weight and power. The basis of the proposed effort is a combination of on-chip digitization and optical amplification to enhance sensitivity and fil ...

  2. Interband Cascade Infrared Light Emitting Diodes for IR Scene Simulation

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T020

    Maxion Technologies, in collaboration with a research team at The State University of New York at Stony Brook, proposes to adapt its interband cascade (IC) laser technology to create IR light-emitting-diode (LED) arrays that emit in the 3-5-micron spectral region and can meet necessary array performance requirements for IR scene projection. IC-based arrays will provide point and extended source em ...

  3. Approach to Enhancing Target Discrimination via 3D Visualization without 3D Glasses

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T008

    There are many factors that render automatic target recognition challenging. These include cluttered background, adverse weather and acquisition conditions, spatially closed targets, spectrally-matched decoys, and the limits on sensor resolution etc. One solution is to have a 3D display, which will help discriminate the targets. However, a major challenge in rectifying the sensor streams, i.e. to ...

  4. Components For High Power, Low-Noise, Wide Bandwidth RF Amplifiers

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: MDA04138

    This proposed work is for the design of an innovative broadband circuit for high-power multiple beam klystrons. A key technical objective is to develop an output cavity with high interaction impedance to ensure high power and high efficiency circuit operation at reasonable beam voltages. A buncher circuit design to effect a uniform bunching current across the band will also be developed to take ad ...

  7. ATACS- Automated Targeting And Checkout System

    SBC: INTERFACE & CONTROL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA04103

    The problem of long and costly development cycles for Guidance Navigation and Control software is not unique to the MDA's Targets and Countermeasures Program. The development of GN&C software for spacecraft can take even longer to design, produce, and validate. In order to shorten the time-to-flight for spacecraft GN&C systems, ICS and Swales Aerospace have devised a software architecture and to ...

  8. Large System Software Visualization

    SBC: WW TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC            Topic: MDA04125

    This project addresses the problem of lifecycle management of large scale software systems. In systems with a large code base, system and software engineers often struggle with maintaining a consistent view of the system architecture and software. WW Technology Group will develop techniques that capture missile defense agency (MDA) software code bases and system architectures into an open, machi ...
