  1. Reconfigurable Memory or Central Processing Unit (CPU) Instruction Architecture

    SBC: BlueRISC Inc            Topic: MDA14006

    The proposed solution automatically co-creates a per-device-unique, configurable secure processor, as well as associated enabling software build environment, enabling unique execution environments, instruction set, and protected memory interfaces. The unique execution environments and protected memory interfaces provide foundational resilience against software, black box, physical, as well as side ...

  2. Deep Inference and Fusion Framework Utilizing Supporting Evidence (DIFFUSE)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...

  3. Weapon Inspection, Sustainment and Recorder Device


    Mainstream Engineering Corporation is developing a prognostic health monitoring system for missile electronics. Called the Weapon Inspection, Sustainment, and Recorder Device (WISARD), this stamp-sized health monitoring system operates on 3.6 mW of power and measures temperature, vibration, and humidity to estimate the remaining life of an electronics assembly. In Phase I, we developed the failure ...

  4. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity nor having direct contact with the propellant. In Phase II, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging pr ...

  6. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    Various processes have been developed to manage uncertainty in data fusion processes so that accurate assessment of threats can be obtained. In our Second Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF) project, we will extend our probabilistic model of fusion processes to include threat object characterization tasks. This will allow system engineers to reason about different m ...

  7. RAPTOR- Reality Augmentation and Personalized Threat visualization for Operational Readiness

    SBC: Chimaera Science LLC            Topic: MDA15006

    One of the challenges for a missile defense systems command and control (C2) operators relates to the process of collecting, parsing, and analyzing vast quantities of information. In order to maintain situational awareness of a battlespace environment, C2 operators require access to visualization systems that incorporate human-centered design principles to support operators unique cognitive abilit ...

  8. High Power and High Energy Ultracapacitor- Reserve Battery Hybrid System for Missile Applications

    SBC: Fastcap Systems Corporation            Topic: MDA15021

    "Unlike reserve batteries, ultracapacitors have a very high characteristic power density, roughly 10 to 100 times greater than reserve batteries, but have relatively low energy density, limiting their use as a standalone power solution for missile defense applications. However, when coupled with a reserve battery optimized to store the required energy for the mission, this hybrid battery-ultracapa ...

  9. Laser Based Secure Component Identification

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14001

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a laser-based secure electronic component identification system which specifically addresses the risk of counterfeit parts at all points along the supply chain. The proposed approach non-destructively, covertly, and uniquely identifies each electronic component produced, allowing for retrieval of production time, location, batch/lot number, ...

  10. Conformal Multilayered Passivation for Type-II InAs/GaSb Superlattice Mesas

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA14021

    The unique electronic properties of periodically-arranged indium arsenide/gallium antimonide (InAs/GaSb) mesas in the type-II strained layer superlattices (SLS) make them a superior alternative to the conventional HgCdTe sensors for longwave infrared focal plane array (LWIR FPA) detectors. However, despite the highly promising quantum features of SLS, its performance is currently limited by high ...
