The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Star Background Model

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA11032

    We propose to develop a new and innovative capability to model the contribution of stellar sources to the background radiation detected by EO/IR sensors. This Star Background Model would comprise a new comprehensive database of known objects outside the solar system, both stellar and non-stellar, together with a means of estimating their in-band radiances for any waveband in the 0.2 to 15µm rang ...

  2. Airborne Hyperspectral Data Compression

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF121140

    ABSTRACT: Operational airborne hyperspectral imagery (HSI) offers numerous advantages over traditional single or multiband sensing modalities for DoD intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance tasks. Its extremely high information content, which captures unique spectral signatures of targets and materials of interest, can lessen the reliance on expert data analysts and improve response time. ...

  3. Post-Maneuver Orbit Determination from Multi-Sensor Analysis of Plumes (PODMAP)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF121012

    ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences, Inc., and subcontractor Pacific Defense Solutions (PDS), LLC propose a Post-Maneuver Orbit Determination from Multi-Sensor Analysis of Plumes (PODMAP) system, consisting of a thrust vector inversion algorithm that produces post-maneuver orbital elements from wide field of view plume imagery and plume photometry. The Phase I effort focuses on post-maneuver orbit deter ...

  4. Fast Passive Optical Sensor for Jet Engine Applications

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF121202

    ABSTRACT: We propose the development of a high-speed, passive, in-situ, hyperspectral sensor system and its integration into engine-scale augmentor test program at AEDC. An optical probe would be integrated into an existing mechanical probe to provide multiple views of the emission coming from various locations in the augmentor flow path. The light would be routed to an innovative adaptive spe ...

  5. Space&Chamber Effects Simulator (SPACES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF121203

    ABSTRACT: There are many components to the space environment, both natural and man-made, that can adversely affect spacecraft performance. Their relationship is often complex and nonlinear, making scientific modeling essential. We propose to produce a structured network of physics-based computer models that will allow a trained test engineer to knowledgably set up and interpret chamber tests th ...

  6. Next Generation Terrain and Cloud Background Models for System Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA08032

    Atmospheric effects, especially the impact of clouds, play a major role in remote sensing applications, and in particular, the design of defense and surveillance systems. Of special importance, are the effects of clouds and terrain on ballistic missile launch detection and tracking. The detection of ballistic missile launches beneath an optically opaque cloud field in the presence of a solar-ref ...

  7. Propulsion Kinetics for Alternate Wavelength Signatures (PAWS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA08033

    Several current BMDS sensors and advanced technology concepts are using or considering passive exploitation of signature features outside the 2.5-5.0 micron range. However, current signature models are focused primarily on this relatively narrow band in the infrared. We propose to develop a set of software modules called PAWS (Propulsion Kinetics for Alternate Wavelength Signatures) and integrate ...

  8. The Blow-down Large Angle-of-attack Signatures Thrust Termination Toolkit (BLAST3)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10022

    The outcome of the proposed SBIR program will be the development of the Blow-down Large Angle-of-attack Signatures Thrust Termination Toolkit (BLAST3). BLAST3 will consist of a physics-based framework of modules for producing simulated imagery and radar scenes of solid rocket motor thrust termination plumes and debris, including time-dependent radar and infrared spectral signatures. This approac ...

  9. Advanced Chemistry and Radiation Modules for Wake and Reentry Flows

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA10023

    The flowfields surrounding reentry and other hypersonic vehicles are complex and challenging to model. At hypersonic velocities, the flow may ionize and form a plasma sheath around the vehicle, ablating heat shield material can be entrained in the flow, and non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) effects can become important. All these effects can change the vehicle electro-optic (EO) and radar ...

  10. Cloud Effects Correction Of Drone-Collected Crop Imagery For Precision Agriculture

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The effect of cloud shadows on aerial imagery is an unsolved problem that has been identified by many operators of unmanned aerial vehicle (drone)-based remote sensing systems for agriculture. Shadows affect the ability to compare imagery, including multispectral and hyperspectral imagery (MSI and HSI), taken over periods of time, and the ability to quantify image data analytics, including NDVI an ...
