  1. Dual S&C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: MDA11T004

    Reductions and reallocations of telemetry wireless bandwidth have prompted the need for DoD agencies to adapt to operation in more restricted and less desirable frequency spectrum. Telemetering systems must evolve to address these frequency allocation changes, while retaining operational characteristics that are vital to MDA mission success. The design and implementation of high performance transm ...

  2. SH-PMHT for RF/IR Data Correlation

    SBC: Vectraxx, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    In this Phase I SBIR project for MDA, Vectraxx of Glen Allen, Virginia will address the critical problem of correlating tracks from RF to IR sensors. This is an essential element to the sea-based component of the MDA"s Ballistic Missile Defense System. The objective of this R & D effort is to leverage frequency features of both RF and IR sensors in order to advance correlation, association, and ...

  3. Low Defect Density Mercury Cadmium Telluride on Silicon by Bulk Layer Transfer

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: MDA11T002

    The goal of this STTR project is to develop an engineered growth substrate technology that will enable low defect MCT growth on silicon that is comparable in defect density to MCT grown on lattice matched CZT substrates. The layer transfer process elements demonstrated in Phase I will be further optimized to produce low defect density MCT on silicon substrates in Phase II. SRICO will achieve this ...

  4. Accurate Scene Generation of Target Characteristics Incorporating Dynamic Atmospheric Conditions using GAIA and OCEANUS

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: MDA11001

    The Ballistic Missile Defense System"s ability to detect and track enemy missiles against space, ocean, or terrain backgrounds, including any intervening clouds as well as atmospheric turbulence, requires prior knowledge of the environmental radiance conditions to support the development of optimal airborne sensors and detection approaches. To support sensor development there is a need for an accu ...

  5. Methodologies for Developing Extremely Large IR Scene Projectors

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA11003

    Under this SBIR Imaging Systems Technology will develop a large area IR scene generation system based on its Plasma-shell technology. Plasma-shells are tiny glass bubbles filled with gas. When energy is applied across the Plasma-shell the gas ionizes to form plasma. The Plasma-shells are applied to substrates to form large area arrays. The arrays are very rugged, and can be made very large. Plasma ...

  6. Methodologies for a Partial Frame Correlation of Multiple Sensors


    In order to provide the highest level Quality of Service (QoS) for both tracking and discrimination functions it is imperative that information from all sensors be associated correctly. Due to potential bandwidth, latency and timeline impacts, it may be necessary to limit downlinked Airborne Infrared (ABIR) data to portions of the focal plane around exceedances of interest. As a result, we propose ...

  7. Innovative Signature Exploitation for Long Range Object Discrimination


    One of the principle challenges in developing a robust missile defense architecture is the characterization and classification of objects in a threat complex. The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) performance depends on data from diverse EO/IR and RF sensors. The objective of this proposal is to investigate innovative concepts for long range real-time discrimination of ballistic missile th ...

  8. Sensor Resource Management

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA11011

    The expansion in the Missile Defense Agency"s mission to include emphasis on theater and regional missile defense necessitates the development of innovative concepts and techniques for employment planning and real time tasking of a variety of distributed sensor resources. Needed are algorithms in a number of closely coupled areas including: fusion of information from disparate and possibly hetero ...

  9. Sensor Resource Management


    The task of managing employment planning and real time tasking of sensor resources in complex ballistic missile defense target environments demands innovative techniques. As the complexity of a threat scene grows, the resources required to survey the situation grow at an even faster rate. Sensor resource limitations require intelligent and deliberate management in a multi-raid or multi-target envi ...

  10. Coordinated Asset Tasking System for Ballistic Missile Defense


    In order to mitigate the increasing threat of multi-raid short and long range missile attacks from hostile countries and non-state terrorist groups on the U.S. and its allies, advanced, cutting-edge technologies for ballistic missile defense must be developed to ensure their protection and deter potential aggressors. One such key technology is real-time, optimized coordinated tasking and schedulin ...
