  2. RF-IR Target Characterization for Feature-Aided Track Correlation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA12005

    To maintain a complete, timely and coherent situational awareness picture, missile defense command and control functionality typically requires information to be integrated from a variety of different semi-autonomous sensors tracking the battle from different viewing geometries. These sensors, whether EO/IR or RF, typically each develop their own internal tracks upon objects within the scene, whic ...

  4. Water Effects Correction Software (WECS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA12020

    Infrared (IR) target scenes can suffer from distorting effects by atmospheric species present along the atmospheric paths through which the signals are propagated, causing errors in derived target characteristics (e.g., position, velocity, angle). The main contributor to these errors is refraction of the signals by water, in its various forms (e.g., vapor, cloud, air-ice mix, etc.), along the path ...

  5. Optimizing Weapons System and Sensor Pairing Through Efficient Binary Polynomial Optimization

    SBC: DYNAMIC IDEAS LLC            Topic: MDA12004

    Exact formulations of weapon-to-threat assignment problems have long been identified as binary polynomial optimization problems which are theoretically difficult (NP-hard), thus previous research for implementation in the area has focused on heuristic solution methods or methods which compromise full formulation with limits on assignment. The introduction of sensor pairing further complicates for ...

  9. Atmospheric Characterization for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: Yankee Environmental Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA12017

    Test and evaluation of directed energy weapons requires upper air data to accurately characterize environmental conditions within the test range. We describe an expendable lightweight f"ff"Optisondef"ff sensor package that measures in-situ pressure, temperature, humidity, winds and optical turbulence. We leverage proven sensors from our commercial dropsonde/radiosondes and propose two new sensors ...
