  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


    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


    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


    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


    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. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Evolution of the Systolic Processing Array-eXtensible (SPAR-X) Architecture for Advanced, Low Cost, Integrated Avionics


    Missile defense systems must increase their target discrimination capabilities by using advanced seekers and seeker image processing. The objective of the proposed effort is to provide the advanced SPAR-X signal processing work already underway at Lockheed Martin – Sunnyvale to the THAAD next generation avionics development. In addition to THAAD, the MKV program is including scaled down SPAR- ...

  9. Simulation Tool to Intercept Multiple Missiles Employing Quick and Random Evasive Flight Path

    SBC: Metron, Incorporated            Topic: MDA06049

    New interceptor control strategies are required to counter threat missiles that are capable of randomly changing their flight paths. This SBIR project will result in a new simulation tool that can be used to compute, analyze, and test cooperative interceptor control strategies. Metron's approach will use a proven simulation model that has been specifically developed to study optimal guidance and ...

  10. Development of High-Fidelity Techniques to Model Impact Flash and Post-Impact Thermal Signature Prediction and Support Kill Assessment


    Initial implementations of the United States missile defense system utilize two primary sensors for kill assessment: RADAR and infra-red (IR) sensors. The post-impact signatures must be accurately modeled to support kill assessment, sensor design, signal processing, and feature extraction. The post-impact RADAR and IR signatures will be, to first-order, governed in the first few seconds by the dis ...
