Award List:

VLSI CMOS-memristor Building-block for Future Autonomous Air Platforms

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Virtual Structures Research
Principal Investigator: Alex Nugent, Owner – (505) 988-7016
Award Amount: $99,964.00
RI Contact: Yan Yufik
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: We propose a revolutionary method for constructing autonomous self-organizing circuits via memristive and CMOS technologies for use in autonomous flying vehicles. Our method utilizes a simple but powerful plasticity rule that can be mapped to the physics of memristive devices acting as… More

Computing With Chaos

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: New Mexico Consortium
Principal Investigator: Alex Nugent, President – (505) 955-0998
Award Amount: $79,682.00
RI Contact: Katharine Chartrand
Abstract:
We propose a self-organized chaotic attractor based CMOS/Memristor circuit framework called Self-Evolvable-Logic-Fabric (SELF) for autonomous motor control. We propose to demonstrate SELF's ability to spontaneously evolve algorithmic pathways to control a robotic arm to catch a ball utilizing… More

Emerging Software Algorithms for Autonomous Sense Making Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Alex Nugent, President – (505) 988-7016
Award Amount: $148,917.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: We propose an elegant network-building algorithm for sense-making applications capable of learning the spatial-temporal structure of applied input data. Through a combination of synaptic and structural plasticity our networks will dissect vast quantities of streaming information down to… More

Scalable and Extensible Neural Sense-making Engine (SENSE)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Alex Nugent, President – (505) 988-7016
Award Amount: $745,924.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: In our phase-1 effort we proved feasible our Anti-Hebbian and Hebbian (AHaH) sparse-spiking framework for sense making applications. Demonstrated capabilities include optimal pattern classification, anomaly detection and complex temporal signal prediction. In the phase-2 effort we will… More

VLSI CMOS Memristor Building Blocks for Future Neuromorphic Processors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Virtual Structures Research
Principal Investigator: Alex Nugent, President – (505) 988-7016
Award Amount: $749,674.00
RI Contact: Yan Yufik
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Both civilian and military personnel live in a world awash in information while our military commands reconnaissance and weapons platforms of all shapes and sizes over a global and increasingly congested theater. We need new technology to help us sort, prioritize, make sense, and act on… More
