  2. 3G and 4G Communication System Interference Remediation Techniques


    3G and 4G mobile communications systems pose significant interference threats to the AN/SPY-1 operability ashore and in littoral environments. The specific frequency bands at which such interference sources may appear vary with geographic locations across the world. Adaptive array based techniques are not attractive in relation to the AN/SPY-1 radar because they require major upgrades to the radar ...

  3. Advanced Techniques for Lossless Compression of Target Vehicle Telemetry


    An effective and efficient lossless compression algorithm allows additional telemetry and other data to be sent without using excess bandwidth. The proposed lossless compression approach combines real-time system design principles, traditional optimum lossless encoding, the latest research in multimedia compression methodologies, and advanced streaming technologies into the design architecture of ...

  4. A Novel Orthogonal Chaos-Based Radar Waveform with Optimized Receiver Filtering for Target Detection and Discrimination

    SBC: POC TECH GROUP LLC            Topic: MDA12002

    To achieve the goal of finding radar signal waveforms for supporting target information and deducing sensor-independent attributes, we propose to use a novel chaos-based orthogonal radar signal waveform with matched-filter-like (or adaptive) pulse compression processing for improving target detection and discrimination. Recently introduced quasi-orthogonal waveforms based on chaotic systems posse ...

  5. A Low-Cost Hybrid Ultrasonic-RF Sensor System for Characterization of Composite Materials

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: MDA12011

    To address the need of MDA for a NDE system for simultaneously providing feedback on the thickness and RF properties of composite, non-conductive materials in multi-layer stacks, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) along with Iowa State University (ISU), proposes a low-cost, hybrid ultrasonic-RF sensor (HURFS) system. The proposed HURFS approach is based on the XII-developed ultrasonic technology and I ...

  7. Counterfeit Semiconductor Detection using Electromagnetic Emission Anomaly Analysis

    SBC: GMATEK            Topic: MDA12026

    This project involves research and development of an instrument capable of rapidly distinguishing between counterfeit and authentic semiconductor components. A side benefit is that it can also identify failed semiconductors. Non-contact measurement techniques are used to acquire electromagnetic field emissions generated by all electronic components that are powered-up and stimulated. Counterfeit s ...

  8. Combined RF/IR Data Correlation


    Aegis BMD 5.0 CU will expand and update the Baseline 9 MRBM and IRBM threat set, while Aegis BMD 5.1 will have capabilities against more sophisticated short to intermediate range ballistic missiles. An ability to discriminate this wider set of increasingly sophisticated threats is essential. Technology Service Corporation (TSC) and the Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI) propose to identify fe ...

  9. Human-In-Control (HIC) Modeling and Integration Framework for BMDS Simulations

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA12T006

    IAI with University of Michigan proposes an innovative HIC software modeling and integration framework built around objectively quantified cognitive models of human operators i) Executive-Process/Interactive Control (EPIC) and ii) GOMS (Goal Operator Method and Selection rules) Language Evaluation and Analysis (GLEAN). The framework provides ability to model existing or futuristic operator workst ...

  10. M&S Uncertainty Quantification Using an Ant Swarm Model


    Appropriate models for missile defense systems (MDS) need to include both epistemic and aleatoric variables. This prevents the calculation of conventional confidence intervals and significance levels for the models, since these require that a statistical probability distribution be assumed wherever one is not actually known. Our proposed uncertainty quantification system will provide BMD with an ...
