  2. High Speed Missile to Missile Communications

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA17001

    Our approach will enable MDA avoid the long time currently required for current missile to launch control to missile communications and enables direct missile to missile high speed, secure communications during flight operations. This will result in increased probability of kill and potentially a reduction in the number of interceptors and/or kill vehicles required and that inherent cost savings i ...

  3. Advanced Lightweight, Low Cost, High-g Seeker Gimbal

    SBC: Ross-Hime Designs Inc            Topic: MDA17006

    An innovative, new seeker gimbal design featuring “drop in” integration into the missile tube. Transporting, warehousing, and other aspects of logistical support is aided by its innovative and rugged design. A major improvement over traditional gimbals that require “ship within a bottle” assembly techniques. Most gimbals require interior brackets bolted into the missile tube before the fra ...

  5. Performance Optimized Hierarchical Microstructure Propellant for Future Small Interceptor Rocket Motors

    SBC: Helicon Chemical Company LLC            Topic: MDA18004

    Future interceptors would benefit from advanced propulsion capabilities, with higher performance in smaller, volume-constrained systems. Innovative propellant chemistry is needed to enable substantially greater performance in smaller packages. One factor limiting the maximum performance achievable in modern solid propellants is the slow ignition and combustion of the propellant’s metal fuel part ...

  7. Video to Feature Data Association and

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: NGA181007

    This SBIR Phase II project proposes a probabilistic approach to determine a vehicle’s location using onboard video and Lidar sensors and foundation map data in GPS denied environments. The proposed system does not rely on only one type of information source, instead it combines proposals from a variety of location estimators to find a vehicles location in GPS-denied environments. The system take ...

  8. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181006

    Toyon proposes to research and develop algorithms for generalized salient change detection, and to incorporate these algorithms into software tools implemented on the cloud. Our approach leverages the two most promising methods from Phase I, both based on supervised learning. The first method is the entropy-based feature vector and corresponding neural network, which we will apply at a coarse sear ...

  9. OptDef- Extensions for High Performance Computing and Monte Carlo Management

    SBC: OPTIMIZATION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA08036

    To effectively characterize the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) using modeling and simulation (M&S), techniques from the fields of simulation optimization, analysis, and uncertainty quantification can be used, but these techniques require the execution hundreds or thousands of simulation runs. OptTek, a pioneer in commercial simulation optimization, initially designed search algorithms for ...
