Detection and Tracking of Moving Vehicles and Dismounts Across the Land–Sea Boundary

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-004
Budget: 04/25/12 - 10/25/12
PI: Mr. Jamie Bergin

Ground moving target indication (GMTI) and surface moving target indication (SMTI) radar are extensively used for the purpose of detecting and tracking dismounts and moving vehicles over land and water. SMTI radar offers the potential for all-weather day-night persistent detection of surface targets over the entire earth. For SMTI radar to achie...

Georegistered Full Motion Video

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-114
Budget: 03/20/12 - 03/21/14
PI: Mr. David Kirk

A wide variety of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) carrying various sensors are increasingly deployed on today s battlefield for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. These UAV platforms provide a wealth of ISR data mainly captured with video sensors. These video sensors provide considerable amounts of data for exploitation, ...

Advanced Bistatic Signal Processing and Exploitation

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-140
Budget: 03/19/12 - 09/19/13
PI: Mr. Jamie Bergin

Bistatic radar processing by airborne signals intelligence (SIGINT) and other intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR) platforms affords covert, passive exploitation of adversary or own-force radar systems to improve tactical situational awareness and fused intelligence products. Traditionally these bistatic signals have been ignored or ...

MIMO Radar Clutter Modeling

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Rhode Island

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT14
Budget: 03/19/12 - 01/21/13
PI: Mr. Jameson Bergin

ABSTRACT: Radars have long been an important sensor used on the battlefield for detecting and tracking adversary movements as well as for imaging and target identification. One of the primary factors that determines the performance of a radar is the signal processing algorithms used to detect targets in clutter. State-of-the art radars use advan...

Application of Advanced Techniques to Multi-INT Information Association and Fusion

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-050
Budget: 02/15/12 - 02/15/14
PI: Mr. Jameson Bergin

ABSTRACT: Large numbers of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) sensors spanning a number of different phenomenologies (e.g., radio frequency and optics) are currently employed in support of the global war on terror. While these sensors provide data streams that contain a wealth of valuable information for the warfighter, the gro...

Multi-Modal Sensor for Tactical Marine Surveillance

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-019
Budget: 02/13/12 - 02/14/14
PI: Jeff Ridgway

ISL Inc. teamed with APS and ERAPSCO in Phase I to explore the benefits of an underwater sensor that collects both acoustic and electric field (E-field) signals. Exploitation of both signals offers new possibilities for sensor cueing, data fusion, and classification. In Phase II, data were collected against actual targets, and the advantages of ...

Secure Open Architecture Open System Technologies for Tactical Networks

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-196
Budget: 08/08/11 - 08/08/13
PI: Jeff Karrels

The Naval tactical submarine environment poses a complex set of computing requirements unique in many aspects to the particular environment. However, along with the uniqueness of some of the submarine specific requirements comes other more common necessities found across many of the large Department of Defense (DOD) programs. One of those common...

Electric Field Sensor Technology

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-017
Budget: 04/07/11 - 10/11/11
PI: Jeff Ridgway

E-fields produced by submarines is a technology that is suited to the littoral environment and can be integrated into airborne ASW systems. E-field sensors can be configured to fit into A -size buoys for airborne deployment, supporting surveillance and attack missions. In the littoral, ducting effects increase E-field detection ranges as water ...

Robust Wideband Waveforms for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) Applications

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-020
Budget: 03/17/11 - 03/29/13
PI: Mr. Jameson Bergin

The DoD is developing a number of radars to detect and track surface targets including vehicles and dismounts as well image targets using synthetic aperture radar modes. These system achieves wide-area surveillance for dismounts by operating on stationary platforms (helicopter) which eliminates mainbeam clutter spread and allows slow-moving targ...

Modeling and Simulation Technologies to Support Physics Based Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Radar Models in Training Systems

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-024
Budget: 03/15/11 - 01/15/12
PI: Mr. Jameson Bergin

ABSTRACT: Live, virtual, constructive (LVC) threat simulation in electronic warfare (EW) training systems has allowed pilots to train against dense realistic threat arrays. For example, training simulations provide radar warning receiver (RWR) in-flight training against passive threats such as air surveillance and tracking radars. Recent advance...
