  1. Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: MDA13T001

    The proposed effort will develop a new approach to characterize and analyze multiple-sensor decision making under uncertainty. The major focus will be on the decision architecture involving multiple Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) elements and the evaluation of the performance of various decision architectures for ballistic missile object discrimination. The proposed method will provide a well-d ...

  2. Micro-Particle Debris Characterization from Hyper-Velocity Impacts

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: MDA13T002

    An ultra-high speed visible and near-infrared (VNIR) hyperspectral radiometric temperature imager will be developed in this program. The instrument is based on a high speed hyperspectral imager spanning the wavelength range 0.4-0.9 micron and providing hyperspectral data-cubes at rates of 13,500 Hz or faster. The high speed spatial imagery provides trajectory information to determine size and spe ...

  3. Intelligent Simulation Techniques for a Realistic, Unified Command and Control Training System (INSTRUCTS) for Missile Defense

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T005

    Given a specific window of opportunity for an incoming threat, the central Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) operator must dynamically manage the battle to achieve global and regional mission objectives. Seconds matter in these situations, and the C2BMC operator must be well versed in all potential scenarios, so that his actions are both quick and decisive. Currently, ...

  4. Phased Array Beam Steering for High Power Lasers

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T008

    To enable new directed energy systems which are much lighter, smaller and more efficient, new types of optical phased array beam steering are required. In this Phase I STTR, Triton Systems teamed with our academic partner, will demonstrate a new family of reflective phase modulation elements based on recent advances with a new electro-optic material which has been shown to add dynamic tunability ...

  5. Modeling Operator Reasoning and Performance for Human-in-Control Simulation (MORPHIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    Propose development of a human-in-control (HIC) modeling capability that can: (1) represent the breadth of operator decision-making processes across missile defense elements, (2) scale to deliver the appropriate level of fidelity, and (3) be extensible to future operator needs. To provide this HIC modeling capability, we propose to develop and evaluate a full-scope prototype of Modeling Operato ...

  7. Forecasting IR Satellite Imagery for Adaptive Sensor Tasking

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA07033

    Accurate forecasts of infrared satellite imagery are needed to optimize tasking of valuable and limited space borne surveillance assets. Atmospheric constituents such as clouds, aerosols, and water vapor can negatively impact the ability of IR surveillance systems to monitor activities on the ground. Due to their chaotic nature, atmospheric impacts are particularly severe for applications that r ...

  8. Nano-Enabled Broadband Infrared Anti-Reflection Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07001

    In this program, Agiltron and the group of Professor D. W. Wang at Boston College propose a novel nano-porous coating for next generation MDA IR anti-reflection (AR) coatings for detectors and optics. The collaborative research leverages recent progress in nano-material development at Boston College, and Agiltron’s recently developed nano-coating processes. The proposed IR AR coatings will posse ...

  9. High-Performance Dual-Band MWIR/LWIR Uncooled Imager for ABL IRST Sensors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    Based upon the successful dual-band MWIR/LWIR imaging results demonstrated with our uncooled photomechanical imaging technology in Phase I, Agiltron proposes a high-performance uncooled dual-band imager for the IRST sensors used in the ABL Wide Area Surveillance System (WASS) in Phase II. To meet the needs of the MDA, the proposed imager will feature simultaneous dual-band MWIR/LWIR operation for ...

  10. High Performance Resonator Fiber Optic Gyro Made of Air Core Fiber

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07052

    Agiltron proposes an innovative resonant fiber optic gyro (RFOG) based on air-core optical fiber achieving high performance, compact size, lightweight and low fabrication cost. The proposed gyro uniquely combines the advantages of high finesse of a ring laser gyro (RLG) and the advantages of long optical path and miniature package of interferometer fiber optic gyro (IFOG). Critically, the utilizat ...
