  1. DIA: Distributed Information Assurance in Ballistic Missile Defense Systems using Scalable, Distributed Data Mining Technology

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: MDA07039

    This document proposes to develop a Distributed Information Assurance (DIA) system based on the distributed data mining technology for detecting distributed network attacks and identifying attackers’ “signatures” for advanced situational awareness. It will offer the following key capabilities: 1. A multi-agent architecture for linking multiple, heterogeneous network-sensors (e.g., intrusio ...

  2. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07037

    The mitigation of mainlobe jamming is essential to missile defense radar performance. Applied Radar is currently investigating distributed aperture and adaptive processing architectures that promise a new generation of advanced radar performance. Our proposed program will research the application of these distributed aperture radar techniques to determine the mainlobe jammer suppression possible w ...

  3. Advanced Phased-Array Module Interconnect Technology

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA07036

    The design and development of phased-array radars requires the integration of solid-state components and adequate thermal mitigation within the array lattice constraints. The current trend is towards increasingly planar designs and a reduction in the array depth. The MDA SPEAR program is one example in which a planar T/R “tile” architecture is utilized. System-on-a-chip technologies such as Si ...

  4. Self-Corrective Remote Imagery Prediction System (SCRIPS)

    SBC: CAELUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: MDA07033

    The U.S. military has been using satellite IR images to monitor ground missile activities of hostile nations. Successful IR monitoring of ground features requires us to account for the intervening weather conditions that can have an adverse impact on intelligence gathering. The proposed Self-Corrective Remote Imagery Prediction System (SCRIPS) will produce up to 72 hours of forecasts for any bandp ...

  5. Miniaturization of Thermoacoustic Expander for 50 mW Recuperative Coolers Run Below 40 K

    SBC: CRYOWAVE ADVANCED TECHNOLGIES INC            Topic: MDA06023

    The objective of this project is to develop a novel expander that can increase the efficiency of cryocoolers for IR sensors at very low temperatures and in remote cooling and across gimbal applications. Miniature Thermoacoustic Expanders (MTAE) that employ high energy acoustic waves generated with no moving parts at the cold expander to produce efficient cooling over a wide range of temperatures a ...

  6. Developing Solid Rocket Motor Insensitive Munitions Solutions for Impact Threats

    SBC: ENERCHEM LLC            Topic: MDA06038

    The Phase II objective is to demonstrate technology that will provide IM solutions to bullet and fragment impact threats in large diameter solid rocket motors. We have taken a comprehensive approach in which a number of IM mitigation techniques are combined into a design that reduces the violence of the response to BI and FI. These techniques, which were assessed and evaluated in Phase I, are in ...

  7. Fiber Optic Gyro (FOG) Performance Improvement

    SBC: Fibernetics LLC            Topic: MDA07052

    Research is proposed to develop and demonstrate innovative, revolutionary approaches in components and architecture, to improve fiber optic gyro (FOG) performance without increasing current FOG size and weight. Gyroscopes are critical components of many inertial measurement units (IMU) including proposed MDA systems such as Airborne Laser (ABL). The FOG is potentially a more reliable and less co ...

  8. Agent-based Multi-missile Interception Simulation Tool Using Distributed Pursuit-evasion Game

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA06049

    In the Phase I effort, IAI, its consultant, Dr. Jose B. Cruz, Jr., and Lockheed Martin MS2 have proposed and implemented agent based game theoretic multiple missile defense simulation tool and support algorithms. The simulation tools support: 1) clear comparison and evaluation of different missile interception strategies; 2) High performance guidance strategy which can seamlessly work on both midc ...

  9. Seamlessly Integrated GNC Algorithms for Multi-Missile Interception

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA07012

    We propose an integrated missile interception approach that ensures seamless transition between fly out guidance phase and end game guidance phase under environments with complex noises and multiple weapon/sensor resources. Several distinctive key features are as follows: 1) Rather than attempting achieving fly-out guidance laws that will invariably require information on time-to-go, continuous fe ...

  10. A Hierarchical Battle Management and Planning Aid Framework for Effective

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA07045

    We present a hierarchical battle management and planning aids framework for effective situational awareness in stressful, time critical, and collaborative environments. The proposal herein gathers novel ideas, prior arts, and our own expertise and practices to provide an effective and practical approach for the aforementioned topic. The proposed framework is featured as unified task representation ...
