  1. Improved Jam Beam Radiometers for the Towed Airborne Plume Simulator (TAPS)

    SBC: SCITEC, INC.            Topic: MDA08050

    The goal of the proposed STTP is to improve the Jam Beam Radiometer capability in the TAPS System to provide enhanced characterization of missile warning systems during testing against simulated SAM and AAM. The resulting radiometer and gimbal system will improve the current live fire testing process by providing enhanced JBR capability, which will significantly enhance the TAPS testing scenario c ...

  7. Uncooled Radiation-Hard InGaAs Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) Photon-Sensing Integrated Circuit (PSIC) Video Imager

    SBC: Wavefront Vision Inc            Topic: AF182115

    With the proliferation of anti-satellite weapons (ASat), traditional space sensors have become vulnerable due to their large size, heavy weight and expensive cost. Novel sensors are needed to reduce size, weight and cost to increase space system redundancy and resilience while maintaining or even enhancing performance compared with existing in-space sensors. Although extremely small, light in weig ...

  8. Multi-Level Information Assurance and Cyber Security

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF183003

    Multi-Level (cross domain) Information Assurance (IA) and Cyber Security (CS) are high priorities for commercial and military sectors. Formerly data security meant marking, filing, and tracking classified information. Today voice, chat, twitter, emails, and video media are added to the mix of information that must be protected. The DoD has mandated that information stored in media or transmitted v ...
