  2. Integration of Risk Analysis into Acquisition Cost, Schedule, and Performance Evaluation Tools

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: AF06202

    A critical capability required by the DoD is maintaining an accurate and comprehensive picture of the battlespace at all times. A key to this is the growing use of layered sensor networks that together form complex systems-of-systems. Utilizing this approach for effective situational awareness requires high level of trust in the data that is ultimately produced. Critical to this goal is ensurin ...

  5. Air-to-Air Targeting Algorithms for Turreted Gun Systems

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12099

    Continuing development of airborne threats has increased risk for military rotorcraft. Development of air to air targeting algorithms for a stabilized turreted gun systems has not kept pace with technology and improvements are needed to be effective against aerial systems. Military helicopters use machine guns as offensive and defensive weapons against air and ground targets. However, they have ch ...

  6. 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 ...
