Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA15-001
Budget: 12/18/15 - 12/17/17

Contractor will develop innovative concepts and techniques to develop target recognition approaches focused on cognitive synthesis of current and emerging sensor data sources. (Approved for Public Release 15-MDA-8482 (17 November 15))

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-T002
Budget: 06/16/14 - 06/16/16

Under the Phase I effort, a set of algorithms were developed/enhanced that, when integrated into a fused track and characterization schema, are capable of realizing the full potential performance afforded by the battle manager having multiple sensors. dBWager is a multi-sensor measurement correlation algorithm that provides highly accurate sta...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-031
Budget: 01/15/14 - 01/14/16

With discrete event or time stepped techniques, modeling and simulation (M&S) systems inefficiently utilize their expensive hardware platforms by idly waiting for results from slower model elements. Optimistic execution allows faster elements to work ahead but makes implementations much more complex, e.g., support for hypothetical timelines an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-034
Budget: 07/26/13 - 07/28/15

We propose to build a model of the Upgraded Early Warning Radar (UEWR), configured for the Thule site, to model the effects of ionospheric scintillation on radar performance. The results of our Phase I investigation show that the physical phenomena driving scintillation link solar energetic events to turbulence in the electron content of the io...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Tennessee

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-T002
Budget: 04/25/13 - 10/29/13

The development and integration of three unique and innovative algorithm prototypes into a Fused Track and Characterization Schema are proposed. This Schema will encompass the determination of signatures and characteristics of objects that can be identified by RF and EO/IR Sensors in order to enable multi-sensor data fusion and correlation. T...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-040
Budget: 05/09/12 - 11/09/12
PI: Van Der

Evolving electronic warfare (EW) and its impact throughout the battlefield necessitates simulations. Modern EW simulations do not accurately replicate EW suites and their impacts on radars in real-time, distributed environments. This SBIR intends to develop a real-time simulation replicating enemy tactical radars, and the US EW suites used on th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-148
Budget: 05/07/12 - 02/15/13

ABSTRACT: The design, development, test, and implementation of a Virtual Receiver/Exciter (VREX) Generalized Digital Radar Stimulator prototype the HSSTM - needed to maintain and upgrade the capabilities of the Space Surveillance Network (SSN) dedicated ground based sensors, based on deciBel Research innovative, open source, common, modular, t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-031
Budget: 03/01/12 - 08/31/12

Traditional approaches to synchronization in Modeling and Simulation (M&S) are time-stepped or discrete event-based. These conservative techniques can impose serious penalties in runtime and in opportunity cost where very expensive hardware spends valuable time waiting on results from other processing nodes. The Missile Defense Agency s M&S Dire...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-039
Budget: 02/08/12 - 08/07/12

Accurate knowledge of a target's radar signature is a critical issue in assessing the performance of the Ballistic Missile Defense (BMDS) system, and digital signature models continue are used extensively in simulation of BMDS elements. Though existing predictive signature codes are fast, they are limited in their ability to model non-specular s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-034
Budget: 02/01/12 - 07/31/12

A model of ionospheric scintillation affecting the performance of the UEWR Thule radar is needed to determine the impact of ionospheic scintillation on the Thule radar s ability to perform its mission as an element of the fielded missile defense system. The scintillation mitigation effort is recognized by the MDA Sensors Directorate as a Critica...
