Interactive Sensor Fusion for Context-Aware DiscriminationSBC: 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.

Decision Making under UncertaintySBC: 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
Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Integrated Vibration AttenuationSBC: 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
Information SalienceSBC: DISCERNING TECHNOLOGIES, LLC Topic: OSD11TD1
Empirical-based mathematical framework and computer algorithms, for representing human perception and cognition processes and limitations, which influence the recognition of salient information about rapidly changing events.STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseOffice of the Secretary of Defense
Micro-Particle Debris Characterization from Hyper-Velocity ImpactsSBC: Torch Technologies, Inc. Topic: MDA13T002
Leveraging the results of our Phase I work, the Torch Team proposes to execute laboratory-based experiments to elucidate fundamental micro-debris formation mechanisms to improve optical modeling of impacts. Optical signatures from impacts collected over the last decade have identified definitive micro-debris parameter trends. However, current theories have difficulty reproducing these optical ob ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Light Weight Optics For High Power Directed Energy ApplicationsSBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORP Topic: MDA13T009
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing light weight and thermally manageable integrated optical systems suitable for a variety of space and airborne high power directed energy applications. This project will focus on improving two of the most important parts of a high energy mirror design, the highly reflective mirror surface, and the light weight and stiff m ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Base Metal Electrode Capacitor Test MethodsSBC: FUNDO SCIENCE CORPORATION Topic: MDA14T003
Miniaturized base metal electrodes (BME) multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) are of great interest for future missile applications as designers are striving to achieve smaller, lighter, cheaper, faster and better electronic assemblies without sacrificing long-term performance. Unfortunately, screening, reliability and qualifications criteria are either not available or not standardized. In the ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Failure Avoidance in Microelectronics through Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) Mismatch Modeling and DesignSBC: Space Micro Inc. Topic: MDA14T002
Space Micro will develop the core of the decision support system, assemble the models and material properties and demonstrate the utility of the program in materials selection on a subset of failures related to a specific test-bed, which will be the attachment of quad-flat no-leads (QFN) and ball grid array (BGA) devices to printed wiring boards using different solders, underfills, QFN or BGA geom ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Microelectronics Component Adhesive Selection and Design Rules for Failure AvoidanceSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: MDA14T002
Thermally induced fatigue and residual stress introduced during fabrication are sources of stress related failure in microelectronics, which raises concerns about product reliability and specification. CFDRC has teamed with experts in the reliability of microelectronics packaging to develop a testing and physics based modeling protocol to correlate material properties and thermal loading conditio ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
