  2. Unified Interceptor Assignment Algorithms

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: MDA09026

    Detecting, localizing, and intercepting one or more missiles during ascent phase presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn, MA, and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin, propose a foundational, control-theoretic approach to such problems. It is based on the idea of mathematically modeling a multiplatform-multisensor-multitarget system as SING ...

  4. Improved High Speed and High Dynamic Range Photon Counting Sensors for Active Imaging

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA09038

    Voxtel proposes a high speed, asynchronous, photon counting receiver for active ranging by unmanned aerial systems (UAS). Sensitivity to single photons is desirable for a low size weight and power (SWAP) UAS-borne active ranging receiver because of the limited laser pulse energy that can be transmitted, and the limited optical aperture available for signal collection. High rate operation is anothe ...

  5. Ion Beam Sputtered Coatings for Large Aperture, High-Energy Laser Optics

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: MDA09039

    Large diameter optics have numerous challenges, including fabrication, surface figure, weight, transport, mounting, materials choice, and thermal concerns. High Energy Laser applications bring additional challenging parameters to the mix, such as surface micro-roughness, laser damage threshold, coating adhesion, and coating thermal conductivity. The developments in this proposal will result in a ...

  6. High Energy Laser Technology Innovations for BMDS Directed Energy, Tracking, and Illumination

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA09037

    Next generation lasers for Missile Defense ranging applications require scaling pulse brightness and repetition rates in compact and efficient packages. To address this need, nLIGHT proposes to significantly increase the pulse energy of a passively Q-switched diode pumped solid state laser while maintaining excellent beam quality in an efficient master- oscillator power amplifier architecture.

  7. Femtosecond UV Laser Pulse Expander

    SBC: RADIABEAM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SB082004

    In many applications, such as the remote identification of explosives and other hazardous compounds, UV pulses of variable length are required. Many of the chemical processes of interest to the defense sector occur on ~100s of ps timescales and demand a high degree of control over the peak laser power. On the other hand there are a number of laser sources capable of producing high intensity, broad ...

  10. Detecting and Tracking Multiple Moving Objects from a Moving Platform

    SBC: Dragonfly Pictures, Inc.            Topic: SB082029

    We propose to demonstrate a"Tracking with Planning"module for tracking objects in a highly cluttered environment from a moving platform. This system is designed to track objects with multiple long occlusions, by anticipating where and how the objects might move. The main innovations are 1) actively anticipating objects'goals and intentions, 2) using motion planning to create multiple plausib ...
