  1. Electro Optic Avionic Advanced Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC) Algorithm Development to Enhance the Lethality of Interceptors Against Maneuveri

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T003

    This Phase II effort will further develop a technique to improve current seeker discrimination and tracking capabilities using a unique particle filter algorithm (PFA) approach. The advancement represents a significant upgrade to current and future seekers facing advanced threats in stressing environments. Quantifiable improvements over many facets of the current approach have been realized during ...

  4. AIMSMART: Adaptive, Interactive MDA Semantic Model-based Articulation

    SBC: CYCORP, INC.            Topic: MDA11T003

    We will develop automatic ontology-aligning software, leveraging the enormous existing Cyc AI system to drive the formulation and ranking (pro/con argumentation) of hypotheses about term-term relationships, especially where the relationship is not simple 1-to-1 correspondence. Multiple Cyc micro-theories (contexts) will be created, to hold incommensurate alternative mappings, and logical conseque ...

  5. High Sensitivity Light-Weight Gyroscope

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: MDA08T005

    Gyroscopes are found in nearly every airplane, many cars, robots, missiles, and more. The reason for such broad, wide-spread use is simple: gyroscopes are excellent tools for determining rotation, and can be quite sensitive. Improving the sensitivity of optical gyroscopes while also reducing their size and weight has proven to be a significant challenge. To provide a solution, Los Gatos Researc ...

  6. Modeling of Lithium-Ion Cell Performance

    SBC: Quallion LLC            Topic: MDA10T004

    Quallion LLC proposes to continue development of its reference electrode technology into a commercial scale prototype and partner with the University of South Carolina to develop a life prediction model for cells cycled at high depths of discharge. In Phase II, Quallion will refine its reference electrode design based on lessons learned in Phase I, incorporate a reference electrode into commerc ...

  8. Innovative Methodologies for Manufacturing of Lethality Test Articles

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: MDA17T001

    Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) is an attractive technology for the production of lethality test articles due to the potential for significantly reduced lead time and manufacturing cost. However, in order to be effective in providing accurate lethality data, the properties of the AM material have to match closely the properties of conventionally manufactured alloys found in real threat target ...

  9. Multi-Physics Analysis Tool for High-Energy Gas Lasers

    SBC: Material Flow Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MDA16T001

    Based on the results of our Phase I work, one significant barrier to optimizing battery performance lies in understanding the relationship between bulk solids and particle flow properties and the flow into the die. Our hypothesis: an increase in quality batteries production can be achieved if powder preparation process can be optimized and the die filling process controlled. We feel that control o ...

  10. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: MDA17T004

    A significant weight reduction on missile platforms could increase maneuverability of the payload and allow more capable payloads. High temperature composite materials offer the means by which low cost and lighter weight missile structures can be achieved. Approved for Public Release 19-MDA-10203 (4 Sep 19)
