Contract: N00014-13-C-0118
Award Amount: $486,301.00


The objective of ONR SBIR Solicitation Topic N112-159, Auxiliary System Sensor Fusion, is to develop methods and algorithms that allow sensor information from disparate auxiliary systems to be intelligently fused to provide enhanced situational awareness. A Phase II proposal in response to the solicitation topic has been jointly prepared by Technical Documentation Incorporated (TDI), a wholly-owned small business based in King of Prussia, PA and the Center for Data Analytics and Biomedical Informatics, Computer and Information Sciences Department, Temple University based in Philadelphia, PA. The 18-month base period and the nine-month option period contract will involve continuation of the Phase I activity, including use of software, data and documentation from the Government, which defines the notional system simulation of a reduced scale hardware implementation of a shipboard chilled water system and an electrical system. This software, data and documentation, in conjunction with the MATLAB, Simulink and Toolboxes kits software tool license purchased by TDI, is being used to build intelligent algorithms, for the fusion of data obtained from the simulated remote sensors. The intelligent algorithms are based on proven techniques such as Bayesian belief networks, linear and nonlinear classifiers, Kalman filtering, and Dempster-Schafer. Other techniques may be investigated as they are identified and time and material resources permit.
