  1. Stochastic Modeling And Optimal Game-Theoretic Strategies For Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA07031

    The sensor and weapon resource management problem for Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) considering adversary's choice of launch times, aimpoint locations, and countermeasures is a challenging game theory problem. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn, MA and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin MS2 Tactical Systems (LMTS) propose a novel general stochastic game-theoretic approach to the BMD pr ...

  2. UV-IR Robust, Accurate Earthshine and Skyshine (RAES) Model

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA07017

    Target detection, classification and tracking by missile defense sensor systems from post boost phase through mid-course to reentry is affected not only by background contrast but also by the irradiance contributing to the target signature by extended sources including direct and reflected sunshine, earthshine, airglow, moonshine and other celestial sources. The total irradiance on the target from ...

  3. Forecasts for Adaptive Sensor Tasking in the Infrared (FASTIR)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA07033

    Satellite ground imagery from space-based infrared (IR) sensors can be invaluable when monitoring areas of military significance during periods of rapid activity of several hours to days. IR ground imagery is strongly influenced by weather conditions such as cloud cover and water content that can adversely impact surveillance. Predictions of IR image availability and quality during adverse weather ...

  5. Innovative Low-Temperature Process for Anti-Tamper Coatings(1001-164)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA06051

    This proposal addresses the MDA’s need to develop a manufacturing process for application of anti-tamper coatings to protect critical program information and technology. The proposed anti-tamper coating and processing techniques will protect military electronics against reverse-engineering while being gentle enough to be applied to sensitive electronics. During the Phase I, Triton has demonstr ...

  7. Miniaturized Thermoacoustic Cryocooler for Missile Defense Applications(1001-247)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    Triton Systems, Inc., proposes to transition a proof of concept cryocooler developed under the MDA STTR Phase I effort, to a miniaturized cooling system that will have commonality and reducibility to serve multiple MDA missions. The proposed cryocooler uses a novel standing wave design to achieve the miniaturization and low weight needed for MDA focal plane array cooling systems. This cryocool ...

  8. Security Policy Reconciliation

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: MDA07041

    The Department of Defense Goal Security Architecture (DGSA) transition plan has established a framework and a long range road map for the implementation of security policies in the DoD information systems. DGSA establishes a number of requirements that should be implemented in order to achieve the goals of the roadmap. One of the requirements is that a representation for security policy rules be d ...

  9. High Performance Structures with Synergistic Composite Conductors

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: MDA07011

    IST is proposing to integrate electrical conductors and antennas directly into composite structures using a new Synergistic Composite Conductor (SCC). IST's novel SCC technology enables small cross section electrical conductors that can be printed on or embedded into composites without degrading their structural performance. The benefits of this approach include better resistance to vibration and ...
