Efficient Clutter Suppression and Nonlinear Filtering Techniques for Tracking Dim Closely Spaced Objects in the Presence of DebrisSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: MDA12T004
EO/IR elements of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) responsible for detecting and tracking ballistic missile threats encounter extraordinarily challenging threat and scene phenomenology. Specifically, non-stationary clutter characteristic of airborne and satellite-based sensor systems, along with dim target signatures, closely-spaced objects, and dense debris clouds typical of ballistic ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency

We propose to develop the Model for Simulated Human Operator Performance (ModelSHOP), a behavior authoring and execution capability for injecting variable Human-in-Control (HIC) actions and decisions into Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) simulation. ModelSHOP will provide a generative model structure for representing key human performance moderators to combine in different ways to simulate ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency

M4 Engineering, Inc. and Missouri S & T propose to investigate and refine uncertainty quantification (UQ) methods for Ballistic Missile Defense Systems (BMDS) Modeling and Simulation (M & S) with the emphasis on demonstrating the feasibility of non-intrusive stochastic expansions based on polynomial chaos, which will address the accuracy and computational efficiency issues associated with UQ in BM ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC. Topic: MDA12T002
The development and integration of three unique and innovative algorithm prototypes into a"Fused Track and Characterization Schema"are proposed. This Schema will encompass the determination of signatures and characteristics of objects that can be identified by RF and EO/IR Sensors in order to enable multi-sensor data fusion and correlation. The first algorithm, the"3D Pose Estimation"Algorithm, p ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: MDA12T007
A goal of Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) is to use computer simulation of complex systems to make scientifically informed assessments for high-consequence decisions. Because end-to-end empirical data is difficult to obtain for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), computer simulation provides the best method for understanding BMDS capabilities against a wide range of threats. Numerica Co ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Inlustra Technologies LLC Topic: MDA09T001
Inlustra Technologies and the University of Notre Dame propose a Phase I STTR program that, combined with a subsequent Phase II effort, will result in methods for the scalable production of semi-insulating non-polar GaN substrates. These substrates will be utilized in the fabrication of high-power/high-frequency AlGaN-GaN electronic devices capable of reliable operation under high thermal load. ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC Topic: MDA09T002
Hypersonic missile defense systems are being designed to reach global threats. During flight, external surfaces are predicted to reach temperatures in excess of 2200C. As a result, innovative, high performance thermal protection systems (TPS) are of great demand. Among ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTC), it is well known that ZrB2- and HfB2-based materials have high melting temperatures and ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency

Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrates are ideal materials for fabrication of high-power and high-frequency devices based on III-V materials. The current state-of-the-art Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) methods are plagued by several challenges, including, surface charge affects due to surface contamination, and sub-surface damages, which can limit the quality of III-V devices. Furthermore, there is ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
