  3. Cloud Background Clutter Suppression for Early Detection and Track

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: MDA03077

    Extracting missiles from the highly structured cloud/solar background is essential to early missile detection. DRA will develop a system which uses several discrimination techniques to discern the threat from the background. DRA's system is an extension of technology developed to detect tactical missiles. The system consists of a multi-color, low-cost, commercial off the shelf sensor operating ...

  4. Cloud Background Clutter Suppression for Early Detection and Track

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: MDA03077

    The ability to counter theater ballistic missiles requires early detection, tracking, and warning of their launch and trajectory. Today's ballistic missile warning systems are limited in their ability to detect ballistic launches early in the flight. Current systems operate in bands where the atmosphere absorbs most of the energy. These systems are not able to detect the ballistic missiles unti ...

  5. Execution of High Level Specifications for Simulation Based Acquisition

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: MDA04047

    New software development processes depend on accurate specifications; the ability to execute or animate specifications expressed in a lightweight formalism, and the ability to verify properties expressed in that formalism will greatly assist software development. EDAptive Computing, Inc. (ECI) team has designed the Animation and Execution of High Level Specifications (AniSpec) program to address ...

  6. Advanced In-Flight Interceptor Communications System (IFICS) Error Detection/Correction

    SBC: EFFICIENT CHANNEL CODING            Topic: MDA03037

    The MDA03-37 Phase I research explored the potential of improvement of adding turbocodes to MDA's IFICS system. In the related Phase II effort, ECC proposes to develop the hardware and firmware necessary implement the Phase I algorithms in an end-to-end communications link, and perform the testing and measurements required to validate the results obtained in MDA03-37. As an optional extension to ...

  7. A > 30% Efficient Space Solar Cell with Improved Radiation Tolerance

    SBC: Essential Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA04080

    Essential Research Incorporated proposes the development of a high efficiency, metamorphic triplejunction, III-V, space solar cell that will also have significantly higher radiation tolerance. The AM0 one sun efficiency of this AlGaInP/InGaAsP/InGaAs cell will be 31.7%, compared to 28% for the state-of-the-art InGaP/GaAs/Ge cell. Since most of the radiation damage in these cells can be attribut ...

  8. Multi-Band IR Scene Projection Display for Scene Simulation in Hardware-In-the-Loop

    SBC: KENT OPTRONICS INC            Topic: MDA04T020

    This STTR Phase I proposal proposes a feasibility of a novel multi-band IR scene display for scene simulation for missile interception simulation in the Hardware-in-the-Loop. This development addresses the DOD need for infrared spatial light modulators (SLM), primarily as an enabling technology for infrared scene projection, but also for dynamic control of infrared coherent light, as beamsteering ...

  10. Development of a Laser Micromachining Process for the Fabrication of SiC Mirrors

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: MDA04086

    The key goal of this program is to reduce the non-recurring and recurring costs and shorten cycle times for fabrication of the next generation cryogenic telescope structural and optical components. Currently beryllium is used for both the mirrors and the optical bench assemblies in these high performance optical telescopes due to its 1) high stiffness at very light weights and 2) very good therma ...
