  1. Thermally Efficient Emitter Technology for Advanced Scene/Simulation Capability in Hardware in the Loop Testing

    SBC: ROBERT A. RICHWINE, LLC            Topic: MDA15014

    We introduce a concept and a design for a high-speed, high-temperature infrared (IR) scene projector for midwave and longwave infrared application.Results from this study of carbon nanotube (CNT) material characteristics, along with field emission and electro-thermal modeling show that 2000K effectivemidwave infrared (MWIR) temperatures can be sustained and projected by this carbon nanotube pixel ...

  3. Passive Inter Modulationfor Corrosion Assessment and Localization (PIMCAL)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA15025

    It is well documented that corrosion, and many other non-perfections of metal structures, when exposed to multi-tone radio-frequency (RF) emissions exhibit Passive Inter Modulation (PIM) emissions. PIM establishes fundamental limits of performance for wireless sensor, communication, radar, and navigation systems that operate in high output power environments. Compounding the PIM problem is the lar ...

  4. AiMNET: User-Configurable Autonomous Establishing and Management of Secure Networks

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA15011

    "Modeling and Simulation (M&S) tools play a key role to assess BMDS operational performance. However, current simulation missions require extensive participation of human testers/operators to configure the network components and maintain the network topology to meet the network architecture and security constraint. This drives up cost and hinders the evaluation and testing process, and also preven ...

  9. Sufficient Statistics for System of Systems Control (S4C)

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: MDA15T002

    There is an urgent need to develop and demonstrate innovative control, design and analysis techniques to characterize the stability and performance of a system of systems (SoS) as a function of sub-system dynamics, network structure and control/decision processes. This is particularly true in the missile defense scenario, which involves a coordinated defense against threats. However, there is no e ...
