Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-005
Budget: 07/19/16 - 07/27/18

Traditionally, SAR has been deployed on aircraft that use linear flight trajectories to image large areas (i.e. strip map mode) and to obtain one or more high resolution snapshots of a small area (i.e. spotlight mode). While such imaging modes are suitable for: 1) performing wide-area surveillance, 2) periodically monitoring facilities such as a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-018
Budget: 06/02/16 - 12/12/16

RDRTec proposes to study the feasibility of an innovative maritime automatic target recognition (ATR) system concept called Physics Inspired ISAR ATR System (PI2AS) that enables large scale target recognition on low-power mobile computing platforms while dramatically improving probability of correct classification (Pcc) and probability of false ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-004
Budget: 06/01/16 - 12/19/16

The RDRTec team proposes to study the feasibility of an innovative maritime traffic model based tracker (M-TMBT) that integrates our maritime traffic flow model with our state-of-the-art multiple hypothesis tracker and self-learning technology to capture the complex interaction between the vessels and their environment, and achieve dramatic impr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T007
Budget: 01/21/16 - 01/06/17

This effort will design, develop and fabricate prototype SiGe MMICs that when combined with GaN MMICs forms the basis for additional simultaneous modes and more efficiency for the C-band Radar Airborne Collision Avoidance System (RACAS). The addition of these MMICs will enable digitally controlled pulse mode interleaving and switchable and simul...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N152-083
Budget: 10/20/15 - 04/15/16

RDRTec Inc. and our partner The John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) propose to study the feasibility of an innovative model-based super-resolution Small Maritime Targets (SMT) detector that combines coherent SAR imaging technique with micro-Doppler feature discriminator and multipath exploitation to dramatically improve ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-067
Budget: 09/21/15 - 03/20/17

This effort will validate the Multi-Mode Moving Target Processor (M3TP) algorithm and adaptive feature-based techniques software developed under Phase 1 against radar data to characterize their robustness against sea state and target speed. Once validated, the goal is to integrate these algorithms into the modified OSI testbed for close loop tes...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-018
Budget: 07/23/15 - 01/23/17

Traditionally, 2-D ISAR image frames have been used individually to classify vessels of similar classes with limited success. The knowledge of the 3-D positions of the scatterers on these types of vessels can significantly improved discrimination between them. The 3-D ISAR image allows us to create the next generation ATR with a combination of t...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T003
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Air-Borne Sense and Avoid (ABSAA) cooperative sensors like TCAS and ADS-B are non-developmental off-the-shelf items and as such their employment should be optimized to maximize their effect on levels of safety. The radar subsystem is a new construct whose role and employment has not been previously defined. In addition, the cost of the radar dev...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-106
Budget: 10/01/14 - 04/15/15

Collision Avoidance (CA) radar systems are required for compliance with the Navy s operational requirement for Sense And Avoid (SAA) for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs). The Radar Airborne Collision Avoidance System (RACAS) is designed to provide CA capabilities for both Triton and Fire Scout. RACAS total operating frequency extends from 5100 to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-094
Budget: 09/26/14 - 04/02/15

The proposed work extends ongoing RDRTec maritime classification aids (MCA) and feature-aided tracking development activities that utilize high range resolution (HRR) and inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) by adding combined feature vectors consisting of the hard body, water wake, air wake, vibration, and rotator features, combined with the...
