  1. Parallel Design Tools for Optimization of Smart Structures


    This SBIR Phase II project is to continuously and fully develop the title parallel computational design tools initiated in Phase I into superpowerful, commercializable prototype design tools (computer codes) in the following manner: (i) adopting/extending our own superefficient Integral Global/Local Optimization (IGLO) algorithms, (ii) extending/developing some efficient constraint treatment sche ...

  2. A Lightweight, Inexpensive, Low-Power Star Tracker for Small Satellites

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    In partnership with MIT, AeroAstro will continue the development of a highly innovative lightweight, inexpensive, low power star tracker for small satellite applications. No solution currently exists currently in this area of the trade space. The design developed in Phase I takes advantage of the processing capabilities embedded in newer CMOS imagers to reduce power consumption and limit the amo ...

  3. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: BMDO02T00

    The terahertz wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum offers exciting and unique attributes for security imaging and secure broadband communications. However, THz signal generation is difficult and current applications are rare. Existing THz sources utilize large and expensive lasers operating in pulsed mode. Practical application of THz radiation requires the development of THz source techn ...

  4. Agile Engagement Planning

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: MDA02017

    Our Phase I effort explored combining a Stochastic Dynamic Programming (SDP) solver with a Constraint Satisfaction Reasoning (CSR) system to provide an "agile" missile defense engagement planner. We demonstrated the ability to accept a missile defense problem formulation at run-time and execute the formulation using the SDP solver to select weapon allocations. The CSR component insures the feasi ...

  5. Extended Look-Ahead Sensor Management for Missile Defense with a Bayes Net Battle Model

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: BMDO02010

    Our Phase I effort explored using Dynamic Bayesian Networks (DBNs) to predict results of sensor tasking in missile defense Sensor Resource Management (SRM). The DBN output was coupled with engagement planning analysis to take advantage of two proven approaches to improving missile defense SRM; integrating sensor allocation with weapon-target pairing and using extended look-ahead to make optimal u ...

  6. Innovative Operating Software

    SBC: CAPRARO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA03050

    This effort examines the merit of using Semantic Web technology, as developed by the World Wide Web Consortium and DARPA, to reduce the time and money required by MDA to reuse and maintain software. MDA has a large collection of legacy software and algorithms in a variety of programming languages. These algorithms are useful throughout MDA, yet rewriting code is costly and risky. In a Phase I SBIR ...

  7. Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed Information (ALADDIN II)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD02DH13

    Recent terrorist actions, particularly the delivery of anthrax via the US Postal Service, have triggered an urgent need for an early warning system for disease outbreaks due to bioterrorism. In response, we have developed, under a Phase I SBIR effort, a Bayesian Belief Network (BN) approach for Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed INformation (ALADDIN) for early outbreak detectio ...

  8. Distributed Battle Management Techniques


    The Decisive Analytics Corporation (DAC) Team has a unique combination of skills, technology, and experience that allows us to demonstrate an advanced approach for distributed sensor data fusion in Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) engagements using Bayesian Networks. We seek to extend the success of our Phase I effort supporting the development of a C2BMC that is, as required by the original solic ...

  9. Ultra-Compact Laser Radar

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: BMDO02002

    This program seeks to develop a new approach for laser transmitters aimed at ultra-compact space-based Ladar systems. The technology proposed has the potential for reducing the size, weight and cost of the laser transmitter by an order of magnitude over existing devices with the same average power. The design approach incorporates a novel multi-pass diode-pumped solid-state gain module that is o ...

  10. Single Photon Counting 3D Lidar Receiver

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: BMDO02003

    The proposed Single Photon Counting 3D Ladar Receiver forms part of a high repetition-rate Ladar system that will provide a significant saving in cost, volume, mass and power consumption when compared to currently proposed MDA active sensor systems. When combined with a high-repetition-rate transmitter this new receiver will enable deployment of Ladar sensors on miniature hit-to-kill interceptors ...
