  4. Detect and Evaluate through Networked Sensors Exploitation (DENSE)

    SBC: ExoAnalytic Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF151097

    ABSTRACT:As space continues to become more congested and contested, our ability to identify and mitigate man-made and natural threats to space assets becomes increasingly difficult. The detectable population of resident space objects (RSOs) is not comprehensively quantified. Detection, tracking, and classification of objects such as cubesats, nanosatellites, and space debris that threaten military ...

  6. End-to-end solution for Shock Hardened Laser Targeting System

    SBC: Attollo Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF151103

    ABSTRACT:The future of small unmanned air systems and miniature munitions is in the precise delivery of small ordinance and smaller, potentially adjustable, explosive effects. To enable this capability, a miniature Semi-active Laser (SAL) end-to-end solution is needed. Current laser designators are too large, fragile, and far too expensive and current SAL seekers are too large to be used in miniat ...

  7. Rigid-body Off-axis Ordnance Shock/Tail-slap Environment Replicator (ROOSTER)

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: AF151104

    ABSTRACT:Karagozian and Case, Inc. (K&C) proposes to develop a Rigid-Body Off-Axis Ordnance Shock And Tail-Slap Environment Replicator (ROOSTER) concept which can induce peak accelerations over 10,000 g for sustained periods of at least 5 ms to sub-scale non-inventory warheads in order to replicate the harsh and complex deceleration environment experienced by ordnance during penetration. The conce ...

  8. Develop Advanced Cumulative Damage Models for Multi-Strike RC Bunkers

    SBC: Karagozian & Case            Topic: AF151106

    ABSTRACT:The overall goal for this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a methodology to develop advanced cumulative-damage models that predict time-dependent reinforced concrete (RC)-bunker wall deflection, spalling, breach, secondary debris generation, and the incremental wall damage state from multiple weapon detonations. This effort builds on previous work conducted by K&C and ACTA in ...

  9. Long-Range Adaptive Active Sensor

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF151107

    ABSTRACT:Aret proposes a high performance laser radar system based on COTS components that can classify identify airborne threats at ranges of 100s of km. Based on our Coded Aperture Ladar technology, sub-diffraction limited images are resolved at extreme ranges using tomographic target reconstruction. This Phase 1 program models and demonstrates enhancements to our transceiver technology increasi ...

  10. High Definition Munitions Warning Sensor

    SBC: Cyan Systems            Topic: AF151109

    ABSTRACT:The High Definition Munitions Warning Sensor (HDMWS) is the centerpiece for a potentially revolutionary technical breakthrough required in the reliable detection of Hostile Munitions. Our strategy is to address the limitations that exist in current HFI and MWS sensors, namely reliance on the initial muzzle flash for detection. Cyan has developed one of the first HD 1920 x 1080 infrared re ...
