Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-001
Budget: 02/01/12 - 07/31/12

The identification and tracking of objects of interest to the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) depends upon detection, measurement/classification, and visualization of the radiation emitted by these objects. Since BMDS operation is strongly tied to imagery, the input of synthetic imagery that resembles operational scenarios is one way t...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T002
Budget: 07/16/09 - 02/16/10

Pattern generation on the ocean''s surface results from complex interactions of the atmospheric wind above, with the natural and man-made disturbance environment below. Waves are ubiquitous at the surface, and in the upper ocean. While wavetrain analysis is the basis for much of what is known about both linear and nonlinear ocean waves, it is ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-009
Budget: 05/16/06 - 05/16/07

The Phase I work has shown the technical feasibility of creating new, equivalent-accuracy algorithms for optical simulation with smaller operations counts than existing Fourier methods. These will be helpful in speeding up extended scene imaging simulations used in laser weapons' systems performance evaluations. However, the computational effi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-166
Budget: 05/10/06 - 05/12/07

Experimental tests in Phase I have shown the fuze shock absorber system capable of reducing shock peaks by a factor of three, and the associated jerk by an order of magnitude. The Phase II work will be devoted to exploring the performance space of this jerk-reduction system as a function of its material properties and physical configuration, as...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-166
Budget: 05/26/05 - 02/26/06

The potential for structural failures in fuse assemblies on hardened-target penetrators results from both the high decelerations experienced and their short duration. Fuse survivability would be enhanced by lowering the magnitude, and extending the duration, of the deceleration pulse transmitted from the weapon to the fuse. LRK Associates prop...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-009
Budget: 04/15/05 - 04/15/06

Current techniques for simulating light propagation through atmospheric turbulence employ Fourier transform methods for calculation of diffraction effects. Although highly accurate, these methods are computationally burdensome, and substantially slow the task of computing extended scenes on a time-varying basis, as is required for closed-loop a...
