  1. Long-Duration, Eye-in-the-Sky Monitoring for Airfield Threat Detection

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF06204

    In today’s Urban-Warfare Command and Control, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) environment, current sensor platforms have a limited operational capability due to power consumption and recharge times. Many times these sensor packages are found to be unsuitable for many battlefield environments due strictly to their endurance limitations. Much of the research done to date has ...

  3. Distributed Satellite Resource Management for Space Superiority

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF083220

    This effort will provide automated GPS outage and degradation characterization (e.g., environment or man-made) tools based upon GPS satellite to site Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) data, Communication/Navigation Outage Forecasting System (C/NOFS) scintillation cloud predictions, and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) event tracks. Then detect and track relationships of t ...

  4. Small Team Command, Control, Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA)

    SBC: CEEBUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM08001

    In Phase I Ceebus demonstrated the feasibility of an underwater, acoustic, direct-sequence spread-spectrum communication architecture, including actual data transfers and decoded message recovery. All of the communication algorithms were post-processed and communication was performed with a single piezo transducer. Prototype development is the next step in delivering a system that offers real-time ...

  5. Advanced ABIR Correlation and Fusion Algorithms for an Enhanced C2BMC

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: MDA07046

    The current U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is comprised of a range of components, the integration of which is the responsibility of the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) system. In the current architecture, track data from Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) systems and ground-based radar systems are processed separately. However, ongoing work is devel ...

  6. Low-Cost Deorbiting System

    SBC: M.M.A. Design LLC            Topic: AF083198

    The proposed Phase II SBIR will design, analyze, produce and test a protoflight unit for a Low Cost De-orbiting System. The proposed de-orbit module is a high reliability, modular, aero-blanket system that de-orbits a 180 kg spacecraft from an 800 km orbit to meet DOD Instruction 3100.12 for a 25 year de-orbit time. The de-orbit system uses common space flight qualified mechanical elements and m ...

  7. Technologies for the Rapid Curing of Composite Parts (PVCI08-007-1)

    SBC: Vector Composites, Inc.            Topic: AF083C068

    Bismaleimide (BMI) 5250-4 and epoxy 977-3 material systems are used in F-35 aircraft composite components fabricated via autoclave. Alternative out-of-autoclave processes can reduce manufacturing costs by lowering capital and tooling costs and providing faster cure cycles, if properties can be maintained. Feasibility of the Quickstep out-of-autoclave process for 5250-4 and 977-3 material systems h ...

  8. OptDef: BMDS-Level Simulation Optimization

    SBC: OPTIMIZATION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA08036

    OptTek proposes to create a new methodology and tool set, “OptDef,” to provide MDA a capability to optimize Ballistic Missile Defense systems—a capability that will enable MDA to answer credibly not only “what if?”, but also “what’s best?” and “why this and not that?” OptDef will build on proven OptTek-proprietary technologies in simulation optimization that will leverage MD ...

  9. Rapid, High-Quality C/C Composites

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB171013

    Cornerstone Research Group (CRG) is reducing the variability and lead-time associated with production of carbon-carbon composites using MG Resins, a unique, high char yield material system as a replacement to typical phenolic and pitch precursors. In Phase I, CRG proved feasibility through characterization of C/C composites made with MG Resin, in which no densification steps were conducted. Very h ...

  10. Capturing Insights from Firefights to Improve Training

    SBC: HF Designworks, Inc            Topic: SB082036

    Despite continuous improvements in military tactics and technology, casualties still remain. Phase I examined the idea of the “first five firefights” to identify if Soldiers have an increased likelihood of becoming a casualty during the initial days of their tour. Research consisted of gathering and compiling Soldier fatality data, conducting interviews (individual and group) with Soldiers and ...
