  1. Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing Technologies

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11006

    Current acquisition, tracking and pointing (ATP) technologies employ optical image processing and/or inertial measurement unit (IMU) data to mitigate image jitter in critical air and space borne targeting applications. Image processing is typically performed using the Kalman filter or some variant thereof, despite the fact that these filters have known shortcomings. In general, they are ill suit ...

  2. Methodologies for Accurate Assessment of Target Characteristics

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA11039

    IERUS Technologies will provide a unique capability to MDA allowing dramatic enhancement of simulation speed and accuracy for RF signature characterization of missile defense targets or threats. Not only has IERUS demonstrated understanding of the MDA RF signature modeling problem, but IERUS personnel are experts in RF prediction software as demonstrated through 1) the release of V-Lox, IERUSs co ...

  3. Anti-Tamper Technology for Missile Defense

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA11018

    The goal of this research is to develop Unclonable Functions that will generate reliable cryptographic keys based on system characteristics. In the event of a reverse engineering attack, the encrypted configuration files, programs, and data will not be deciphered because the attack modifies the cryptographic keys. LIT"s goal is to develop Unclonable Functions that may be used in FPGAs or ASICs to ...

  4. Telemetry Impact Reduction for Target Objects

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: MDA11040

    A primary source of impact to BMDS observables results from the RF signature and IR signature perturbations caused by antennas. To combat this problem, IERUS proposes the development of optimized antenna elements for BMDS telemetry bands whose RF signature has been minimized in the BMDS radar bands (S and X-bands). During Phase 1 of this program, IERUS demonstrated its design process by demonstra ...

  5. Mitigation of the Effects of the Ionosphere on UEWR

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA11034

    We propose to build a model of the Upgraded Early Warning Radar (UEWR), configured for the Thule site, to model the effects of ionospheric scintillation on radar performance. The results of our Phase I investigation show that the physical phenomena driving scintillation link solar energetic events to turbulence in the electron content of the ionosphere. Although there are number of sensors used ...

  6. Improved Techniques for Optimistic Modeling

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA11031

    Our proposal specifically addresses the stated requirements of the solicitation; we will develop and deploy tools, for improving optimistic modeling techniques. The proposed EDAptive PROMOTE solution, focuses on diagnosing, fixing, and reducing rollback and repeatability errors in optimistic models and simulations. In addition, PROMOTE aids in the conversion and embedding of non-optimistic models ...

  7. Real-time Ladar Scene Rendering and Projection Component Technologies

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA05049

    The AEgis Technologies Group Inc. is proposing this Phase II SBIR development effort to address the data bandwidth bottleneck that currently exists between Hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) Scene Generation computing clusters and the sensor stimulators. The existing data links use COTS based video interfaces that result in a bandwidth shortfall by at least 100x for applications in multispectral, hypersp ...

  8. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  9. RF-IR Data Fusion

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA12T002

    The development and integration of three unique and innovative algorithm prototypes into a"Fused Track and Characterization Schema"are proposed. This Schema will encompass the determination of signatures and characteristics of objects that can be identified by RF and EO/IR Sensors in order to enable multi-sensor data fusion and correlation. The first algorithm, the"3D Pose Estimation"Algorithm, p ...

  10. Magnetically Oriented Structural Color Marking for Avoidance of Counterfeit Electronic Parts

    SBC: Correlated Magnetics Research            Topic: MDA12026

    Electronic component counterfeiting is a serious problem for the DOD and for electronics companies more generally. Currently available authentication techniques offer partial solutions to the problem and cannot be broadly deployed across the complex DOD supply chain. A new platform technology is needed that can inexpensively deliver secure authentication, rapid and automated screening throughout ...
