70 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-073
Budget: 08/28/15 - 02/24/16

MARK Resources proposes to develop an automotive radar technology for accurate discrimination of object size and location within a wide field of view. The goal of localization within 10 cm at the distance of 50 m is entirely realistic for the proposed technology. It will be based on commercially available microwave components and signal processo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-007
Budget: 05/22/14 - 11/21/14

MARK Resources proposes to develop a radar sensor to be used for warhead characterization in a test environment. The radar will be designed with very high sensitivity to detect small fragments, and also very high resolution in order to isolate most of the individual fragments in the expected large number and high velocity. Such high performance ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-187
Budget: 05/15/14 - 02/10/15

ABSTRACT: MARK Resources proposes a way to expand the data rate and linear dynamic range of RF receivers in high-end military radars. The product will be especially applicable for low cross section targets in the presence of strong clutter, when jamming is present, and with so-called passive radar systems. The number of bits in the analog-to-d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-038
Budget: 08/22/12 - 02/22/13

MARK Resources proposes to develop a small, lightweight, low-power, and low-cost radar system for detecting and discriminating humans at short range. Unlike optics, it will be an all-weather sensor. It will employ high resolution in range and Doppler to detect slow moving targets in clutter and discriminate them on the basis of arm and leg moti...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T002
Budget: 08/15/12 - 03/15/13

MARK Resources Inc has developed processing algorithms to classify small ships based on 3-d scatterer positions extracted from ISAR data. This processing relies on measuring range-Doppler positions of selected scatterers over selected imaging intervals. Extending the processing to small boats entails overcoming degraded resolution due to larger ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-119
Budget: 09/22/11 - 03/22/12

MARK Resources has previously developed ISAR processing algorithms that provide undistorted plan and profile views of small ships and boats, and that associate responses in the two types of image. We propose to combine this processing with measurements on distorted plan and profile views and thereby derive the unknown crossrange scale of the und...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-090
Budget: 09/16/11 - 03/16/12

MARK Resources has previously developed radar image processing to classify moving ground vehicles based on the analysis of the radar returns from their rotating wheels and has demonstrated that, for ground-to-ground engagements, this approach requires shorter dwells and provides more robust target classification than analysis of the returns from...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-028
Budget: 06/07/10 - 12/07/10

MARK Resources proposes to apply its Complex-Image Analysis technology to develop processing algorithms usable by existing BMDS radars for target discrimination based on physics-based features. The proposed method does not require detailed information about threats, debris, or decoys and applies to radars of varying capabilities.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-O4
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

During the Phase I program, MARK Resources very successfully demonstrated the feasibility of using several distributed small and simple FRPAs that do not need to be precisely arranged, to suppress wideband interference and/or jamming and to provide sufficiently accurate and timely position and velocity measurements from the C/A code for launch v...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-037
Budget: 07/31/09 - 08/01/11

During Phase I, MARK Resources very successfully demonstrated the feasibility of using a distributed aperture radar to suppress mainlobe noise jammers, but not returns from nearby threats, by linearly combining the signals received by the multiple antennas. The processing that we developed applies to dish antennas as well as to phased-array ant...
