Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 1
Abstract: Military domains, such as naval operations, require agile decision-making by Warfighters as they monitor ongoing activities, assess the impact of events, and develop or adjust plans to achieve the overall mission. These missions and resulting tasks emerge from a consistently evolving battlespace,… more
Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 2
Abstract: ABSTRACT: Although Partial Task Trainers (PTTs) have been shown to have a cost savings of 60 percent over training on actual systems, they routinely cost the Government in manpower, maintenance, and upgrades, and are limited by static content that does not address differently skilled trainees.… more
Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 2
Abstract: Underwater ship hull inspection platforms routinely check for damage, corrosion, and suspicious objects. Highly accurate position information is required to properly register hull inspection data with previously collected data to monitor the progression of structural anomalies and other changes and… more
Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 2
Abstract: Sonar operators on anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)-capable surface ships have difficulty reaching and maintaining proficiency. Existing training systems, such as the SAST sub-system of the AN/SQQ-89A(V)15 undersea combat system) do not sufficiently motivate sailors to participate in training,… more
Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 2
Abstract: US Navy efforts to develop effective torpedo countermeasures have yielded mixed results, but improvements are on the horizon. However, the relatively small number of sensors on each ship limits the military utility of the torpedo defense picture currently available to ship commanders. For effective… more
Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 2
Abstract: Current countermeasure anti-torpedo (CAT) systems use explicit logic to direct single-target intercepts resulting in an inability to adapt to the complexities of the stochastic marine environment and the problems of multiple, simultaneous threats. The CAT Learning Algorithm Workbench (CLAW) is an… more
Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 1
Abstract: ABSTRACT: Training simulations that currently support Close Air Support (CAS) training and the Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) training in particular, are laborious to configure and expensive to manage with live personnel, which results in training that is limited in scope. For example,… more
Company: Charles River Analytics Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 2014 / 1
Abstract: ABSTRACT: Training for primary and secondary trauma assessment is vital to DoD medical personnel; it is the first step to saving the lives of wounded Warfighters.
