  1. High-Temperature, Lightweight, Rad-Hard Silicon Carbide (SiC) DC/DC Converters for Missile Defense Satellite Power Management and Distribution Systems

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: MDA06017

    Power electronic converters are essential in every MDA vehicle, with use in critical systems ranging from electric power management applications, to power distribution, to on-board servo motor/actuator drivers. Advancing state-of-the-art power electronics technologies through the use of SiC semiconductors will produce significant savings across the board in almost all areas of MDA power management ...

  2. Optimization of Sensor Management/Sensor Registration

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06009

    We propose to build a sensor resource management algorithm that builds tasking plans that account for both discrimination and tracking information. This approach, which uses a value of information construct to prioritize tasks based on warfighter-defined value, extends our earlier work in which we provided sensor resource management algorithms for the tracking and for the discrimination problem s ...

  3. Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: MDA06010

    Under this SBIR, the Decisive Analytics Corporation (DAC) team addresses two niche capabilities that are not currently addressed in the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). We propose describing the problems of tracking and discrimination within a single, hybrid, dynamic Bayesian network model. We propose solving this network model using a novel inference algorithm suited for use with hybrid d ...

  4. Advanced Data Fusion

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: MDA05057

    In working with our Phase I sponsor, we identified a clear opportunity to develop an advanced BMDS Human Machine Interface (HMI) mockup that can serve as the platform for testing, training, and refinement of advanced algorithms in the BMDS. We will build out the results of our Phase I algorithm development efforts and integrate them into a fully transportable HMI mockup. The mockup will provide a ...

  5. Sensor Registration / Sensor Management

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: MDA07T005

    Our proposal supports the development and integration of sensor resource management algorithms in the operational BMDS by developing and modeling new network messages required to enable centralized control of sensors. The current message set on the system does not provide sufficient control to realize the full benefit of sensor resource management algorithms currently developed within MDA. In ou ...

  6. Secure Software Platform for Real-Time Software Anti-Tamper

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: MDA05020

    Software reverse engineering has become a science of well-defined methods, tools, and philosophies. Known approaches – such as white-box, black-box, and gray-box attacks – and highly-intricate tools – such as debuggers, decompilers, and disassemblers – can be combined to reveal the secrets of software intellectual property and to steal once-secret code and data. Current approaches to sof ...

  7. Adaptive Sensor Electronics With Integral Fiber Optic Communications Interface

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: MDA05006

    The objective of this program is to support the Next Generation Sensor Producibility initiative by developing adaptive (common) sensor electronics to accommodate a variety of focal plane arrays and by developing a common fiber optic communication subsystem that could be used between the sensor electronics and other missile subsystems.

  8. Flame Retardant Ballistic Materials for Missile Defense

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: MDA05002

    Missile defense systems are now required to conform to the insensitive munitions requirements of MIL STD 2105C. Meeting such requirements in the ballistic missile defense system will require a layered approach involving modified shipping containers and canisters, improvements in solid rocket motor casings, and less sensitive solid rocket propellant. For mobile defense systems deployed in forward ...

  9. Affordable Digital Receiver/Exciter for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: GLOBAL DELTA, LLC            Topic: MDA06032

    A program is proposed to leverage the radar technology developed by Global Delta LLC as part of the Navy’s Maritime Identification and Surveillance Technology (MIST) project to develop affordable digital receiver/exciters. Global Delta’s development of affordable techniques for digital beamforming has focused on designs that rely on the use of state-of-the-art digital circuits to generate wa ...

  10. Software Analysis and Reuse with Application to Improving Task-Centered Human Machine Interfaces

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: MDA05052

    The ability of warfighters controlling key Ballistic Missile Defense Systems to do their jobs comes down to the effectiveness of the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs). No matter how sophisticated the hardware and algorithms “behind the glass”, in the end, human operators must decide and execute the appropriate actions to respond to ...
