The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.
SBC: GCAS, Inc. Topic: MDA13T001
Our proposed second order uncertainty (SOU) product is a decision making software solution that addresses the problem of providing accurate and precisely defined decision courses of action (COAs) of complex, time-constrained problems in a fraction of the time required by alternative methods striving to achieve the same level of precision. Complex decision situations can deal with large volume of ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC. Topic: MDA13T007
The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of remaining stable under temperature and moisture changes, while isolating the precision optical array from vibrations such as engine noise and air turbulence. By integrating a customizable periodic stack in the bench, vibrations are attenuated more effectively than commercially available mounts. Additionally, the periodic ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: MDA15T001
We propose a novel computational framework for discrimination that incorporates sensor data from observations of the engagement and from kill assessment (KA) that such sensors can provide. The KA information is combined with data from other sensors to improve the discrimination decision and to reduce the probability of correlated shots.

SBC: BOSTON FUSION CORP Topic: MDA15T001
Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: EXOANALYTIC SOLUTIONS INC Topic: MDA15T001
Missile defense faces the challenges of rapidly maturing and evolving complex threats, possessing capabilities which require the use of all available resources to successfully detect, track and identify the lethal objects. Future performance will rely on multiple sensors such as ground and sea based radars and electro-optical and infrared sensors for target recognition. It is crucial to develop a ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc. Topic: MDA15T002
Control Theory tools and processes for analyzing the interactions of complex System of Systems (SoS) are lacking, specifically when sub-systems are independently designed and/or higher levels of SoS controls are applied. Integrating these sub-systems into the SoS, can result in dynamic interactions between these sub-systems and the SoS controls resulting in unexpectedly large deviations between ex ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: MDA15T002
There is an urgent need to develop and demonstrate innovative control, design and analysis techniques to characterize the stability and performance of a system of systems (SoS) as a function of sub-system dynamics, network structure and control/decision processes. This is particularly true in the missile defense scenario, which involves a coordinated defense against threats. However, there is no e ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: GTD Unlimited LLC Topic: MDA15T002
In this research effort, GTD Unlimited will design tools for efficiently specifying, representing, and analyzing the interactions between control systems in System of Systems (SoS). Our approach will be to model the problem as an uncertain system and analyze the resulting models using control methods. Control methods can be related back to the standard Nyquist criterion for stability, ensuring t ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC Topic: MDA15T005
DfR Solutions and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have formed a team of experts in solder joint reliability and gold embrittlement to perform a series of experiments that will provide the data necessary to create mechanistic reliability models. Critical to any application of these models and of interpreting experimental results is the ability to determine solder joint gold contaminatio ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: MDA15T005
Gold contamination in Circuit Card Assembly (CCA) solder joints leads to brittle intermetallic compounds (IMCs), which is one of the major factors in solder joint failure. The conventional rule of thumb considers 3 wt% of gold (Au) as a safety threshold, which is not always reliable due to varieties of package platforms, solder types, reflux settings, operational and environmental conditions, etc. ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
