  1. Probabilistic Representation Of Operational Functions (PROOF)

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA14011

    To evaluate the BMDS from an engineering and statistical perspective, high-run-count simulations (HRCS) must be performed to more completely sample the scenario space. If HRCS can provide statistically significant results that are validated against higher fidelity simulations, HWIL and live fire test, they can be a very powerful tool in engineering studies, performance estimation and trade studie ...

  2. SPEER With Optical Research Data (SWORD)

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA07044

    SciTec has developed a system for post engagement evaluation and reporting (SPEER) that combines a multi-phenomenology, multi-source fusion engine with a human-machine interface (HMI) to correlate messages, system tracks and multi-source data, further exploits this data and displays information to provide situational awareness to include post engagement assessments. SPEER incorporates the remote ...

  3. Development of line-narrowed diode pumps sources for DPAL systems

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: MDA11007

    Megawatt class laser systems using Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPAL) could be possible because of their extremely low quantum defect which minimizes thermal loading and, like other gas lasers, the gain medium can be flowed to reduce thermal management requirements. One key to producing efficient systems is matching the absorption linewidth of the gain media to the emission bandwidth of the diodes. ...

  4. Innovative Signature Exploitation for Long Range Object Discrimination

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA11010

    The Missile Defense Agency has adopted a Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA) to build up the BMDS system by incorporating existing and newly developed radars, EO/IR sensors, and interceptors to counter new threats, including sensors that are not owned by the MDA. Optimally utilizing these next generation of high fidelity Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) and possibly Airborne Infrared (ABIR) systems ...

  5. Combining wave effects with radiance transport for IR scene generation

    SBC: LRK Associates            Topic: MDA11001

    The identification and tracking of objects of interest to the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) depends upon detection, measurement/classification, and visualization of the radiation emitted by these objects. Since BMDS operation is strongly tied to imagery, the input of synthetic imagery that resembles operational scenarios is one way to test its functionality. It is crucial that such s ...

  8. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    The applicant will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will ve entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and ha ...

  9. High Flux Cooling System for Solid State Lasers

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA10006

    Solid State Lasers, high power microwaves and other future Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs) are notoriously inefficient, typically converting 20 percent or less of their input energy to useful output, with the remainder requiring removal in the form of heat. In most cases, the devices must be paused while the waste heat is removed. Weapon unavailability is the war fighter"s nemesis. Also perplexi ...

  10. High Energy Solid State Laser Components and Subsystems

    SBC: CRYSTAL GENESIS, LLC            Topic: MDA10006

    The goal of this proposed Phase I effort is to design, construct, and demonstrate a novel laser gain element that can be scaled to operation at power levels in the 10s to 100s of kilowatts in a light-weight, compact, and rugged design while maintaining very high efficiency, high brightness, and good beam quality. This goal will be accomplished through the construction of a composite thin disk gai ...
