  1. Integrated Guidance, Control, and Estimation for Hit-To-Kill Interceptors

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Barron Associates, Inc. (BAI) proposes an aggressive Phase I effort to develop novel adaptive, integrated guidance, control, and estimation algorithms for ballistic-missile interceptors with stringent hit-to-kill requirements. The approach combines recentadvances in nonlinear control (backstepping) and estimation methods, and leverages on-line neural network technology for rapid adaptation and ro ...

  2. Advance Failure Warning via Data Driven Stochastic Models

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ideal prognostic system would be generic, requiring no domain-specific knowledge for its application. The prognostic system must also perform across all operating regimes without generating an excessive number of false alarms, and must successfullydiagnose problems. The semi-empirical technique proposed herein by Barron Associates, Inc. and its academic partners at Princeton University takes a ...

  3. Data Driven Prognostics

    SBC: BLUE RIDGE NCA CORP./BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE ARCHITECTS            Topic: N/A

    We propose a software package that combines recent advances in several pattern recognition techniques, including neural networks, multivariate statistics and model-based reasoning. Results from these prognostics will be combined into a single probabilityof failure for the modeled component or subsystem of the ABL, which would be output to a simple graphical user interface (GUI). The preliminary so ...

  4. Smoothing of Military Mirrors by a Novel Surface Alloying and Melting Technique

    SBC: Brontek Delta Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The Be-B binary alloy system has a eutectic at 10 at. % boron, where the singular melting point is at 1120 oC. This value is some 169 degrees below the normal melting point of beryllium. The intent of the present STTR proposal is to use this circumstanceto develop a

  5. Ultra Tight GPS/INS Integration

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and develop an advanced GPS/INS integrated system for anti-jam and high dynamics conditions. Integration between GPS and INS will be performed in a federated sense using ultra-tight coupling. CRS has developed a novel GPS developmentsystem consisting of integrated software tools and hardware modules. These tools allow simulation and real-time implementation in a single step ...

  6. machine learning techniques for failure prediction in computer-controlled devices

    SBC: Cigital, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to implement an array of machine learning algorithms thatcan synthesize failure-prediction monitors with a minimum of human domain knowledge.Such a condition-monitor analyzes behavior data generated by computercontrolled devices --- data that can come from sensors on mechanicalequipment as well as sensors within the control software --- andidentifies evidence of impending malfunctions. ...

  7. Development of a Distributed Collaborative Decision Support Tool for Command Post of the Future

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to provide an accurate and integrated picture of the battle-space in order to support command level decision making is a crucial component of the modem advanced warfare management system. This ability can be significantly improved through the introduction of collaborative decision support tools. In this proposal Datamat Systems Research, Inc. (Datamat) presents the development of a cla ...

  8. An Adapative Mulit-Agent Architecture for Collaborative Problem Solving in Command Post of the Future

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The intelligent data processing tools of the command posts of the future must be able to take full advantage of the huge amount of available information by having a mechanism for the fusion of disparate types of data. The fusion of data can yield some information which may not be obtainable when the data are interpreted separately. The proposed work focuses on providing a general architecture for ...

  9. Distributed Battle Management Techniques

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    In the future Ballistic Missile Defense system, it will be necessary to coordinate the operations of many geographically dispersed system components to create an architecture with the best chance for defeating the threat. Though challenging, it is desiredthat this architecture be implemented in a distributed manner to avoid the need for a centralized controller to which all sensors transmit all o ...

  10. Computer Architectures, Algorithms, and Models/Simulations

    SBC: DOMINION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Dominion Technology proposes to reformulate common digital signal processing algorithms in a form particularly well suited to implementation using a reconfigurable computer based on Field Programmable Gate Arrays. Such techniques offer improvements in throughput of an order of magnitude or more compared to conventional algorithms implemented on programmable DSP chips as software. Dominion further ...
