  1. A Generic Cross-Platform Perception API for Unmanned Vehicles

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: OSD13HS4

    ABSTRACT: Autonomous vehicles lack a standardized mechanism for seamless cross-platform sharing of testing frameworks and evaluations of basic tasks. The ability to execute common tests on various hardware platforms is essential in order to be able to e

  2. Marking of Components for Avoidance of Counterfeit Parts (Phase II)

    SBC: Applied DNA Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA12026

    Applied DNA Sciences (APDN) has developed a reliable DNA-optical adduct that is impervious to copying and is required by the Defense Logistic Agency (DLA) for the marking of FSC 5962 electronic components. Commercial inks supplemented with optical markers and proprietary APDN DNA, trademarked SigNature DNA, ink provide authentication marks that are of a higher standard relative to other taggant t ...

  3. Automated Target Characterization and Correlation with Heterogeneous Kinematic and Feature Data for Sensor Hand-Over

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: MDA12005

    In Phase I, our team applied their extensive experience in this area to develop and implement a unified target characterization and correlation framework focused on sensor hand-over (SHO) between electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) and radar. The SHO system is designed to operate in an environment with multiple heterogeneous sensors where detection, classification and localization information is exchan ...

  4. Sensor Registration

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: MDA08040

    The performance of a multi-sensor Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is heavily dependent upon data from dispersed and disparate radars and other types of sensors. Timely and accurate fusion of data collected from a variety of radars and/or other sensors (EO/IR) is needed to track and discriminate the targets, providing kinematics and classification information. The use of a sensor network is ...

  5. Applying Distributed SAT-based Constrained Optimization to Global Missile Defense Battle Management

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: MDA08038

    As part of an ongoing MDA SBIR effort we have developed REASON, a scenario environment for the missile defense battle management asset assignment and employment problems. Through that effort, we demonstrated how it was both possible and computational advantageous to map missile defense intercept scenarios involving complex coordination, mutual-exclusion, and deconfliction constraints and global no ...

  6. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Weidlinger Associates Inc. proposes to develop effective technology for simulating explosive detonations within civil buildings where the propagation of airblast and failure of weak internal walls are strongly coupled. We will conduct a field test program designed to complement other internal detonation testing efforts such as DTRA''s Distinct Cobra, expanding the available database. We will perfo ...

  7. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...

  8. Power Solutions for Integrated Anti-Tamper Technologies

    SBC: WIDETRONIX INC.            Topic: MDA08041

    Widetronix proposes two enabling enhancements for antitamper (AT) applicaitons in data protection and equipment monitoring as specified by our industrial partner, Lockheed Martin. Widetronix will build a compact, military ready SiC betavoltaic power generator with lifetimes of >20 years with power levels of 10nW-100uW. Further work in Phase II will address systems level integration of the generato ...

  9. High-Output, Monodispersed Aerosol Particle Generation Using Microfabricated Nozzle Arrays

    SBC: Anvik Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aerosol generation is an important leading edge technology with relevance to ballistic missile defense because of the importance of bioearosol generation technology in the development of countermeasures for defence against biological warfare. Aerosol delivery is also an important route for the transmission of naturally occurring particulate materials. The development of new technology for the effi ...

  10. Preparation of Aluminum Nitride Substrates for Device Fabrication

    SBC: Crystal IS, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prepare AlN substrates from single-crystal boules of AlN. When properly prepared, these AlN substrates should be superior to all substrates currently available commercially. In particular, the AlN substrates have significantly superior chemical compatibility, lattice/crystal structure match, thermal expansion match, and thermal conductivity when compared to sapphire substrates that ...
