  1. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    For humans and robots to effectively work together, they must share a common understanding of concepts defining the environment and the relationship of those concepts. In this proposal, we present an approach for dynamic interface creation which takes advantage of a robot-centric ontology. We first define a taxonomy based on perceptions and capabilities of the robot, as well as the input and outp ...

  2. Visual Interaction for Network Information (VINI)

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: SB12A004

    Next Century and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) propose to demonstrate a combination of theoretically-guided experimental-design, complex data sets, and embodied cognitive models to study and predict design and data factors that influence human performance in complex visualizations of large network data. We will leverage RPI"s Visual Interaction Architecture (VIA) which features an experim ...

  3. Effective Routing Algorithms for IP based Satellite Networks


    ABSTRACT: The main focus of this proposal is to develop innovative IP routing algorithms onboard over satellites that can link user preferences and network conditions and improve end-to-end network performance, including heterogeneity of satellite nodes, interferences on satellite links, and others. Because of the unique characteristics of satellite communication links with heterogeneous satellit ...

  4. A Trusted Computing Framework for Embedded Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT15

    ABSTRACT: The damage and loss caused by attacks and security breaches have drawn attentions to develop secure and reliable systems for embedded systems. Compared to their desktop counterparts, embedded devices are facing more security challenges, such as the more possible physical access to a target device and more constrained computing environment (e.g., limited RAM and CPU power). Together, the ...

    SBC: SR2 GROUP, LLC            Topic: AF11BT27

    ABSTRACT: We investigate in the context of massive-scale CFD simulation datasets, modern information extraction and feature discovery methods recently developed in the context of analyzing complex, high-dimensional sensor data. We include four task threads: (1) Dimensionality-reduction to examine correlation of emergent feature spaces with physical phenomena. (2) Identification and tracking of c ...

  6. Electrical Energy Storage System by SMES Method for Ultra-High Power and Energy Density

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT31

    ABSTRACT: RCT Systems, with Florida State University, MIT, and partners, will develop a fast transient Superconducting Magnet Energy Storage (SEMS) system model for aircraft and spacecraft applications requiring ultra high capacity and rapid charge/discharge rates in an energy and power dense package. A fully parametric, multi-physic model allows rapid sizing for a range of energy storage levels ...

  7. Empires of Fortune: A Virtual Laboratory for Investigation of Collective Behavior and Inter-Group Conflict

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A12aT006

    Developing advanced technologies for an online experimental laboratory has attracted widespread interest across the behavioral sciences for over a half-century, progress has been limited by the difficulty investigating the behavior of large groups and large numbers of groups, due to the practical limits on the number of participants that can be brought into a physical laboratory. We propose to de ...

  8. Atomic Layer Deposition of Lead Zirconate Titanate Thin Films for PiezoMEMS Applications


    A big challenge in atomic layer deposition (ALD) of complex metal oxides is that the ALD temperature for one constituent oxide is often different from that of another. Researchers at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), have developed thermal and radical enhanced ALD processes to address these concerns and realized the synthesis of many complex metal oxides, including PZT. Maritime Applied ...

  10. Dual S&C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA11T004

    IAI proposes the design of a Waveform Agile Telemetry Transmitter (WATT) which will support simultaneous dual-band S-C band operation (S-band , 2200-2400 MHz and C-band selectable between 4400-4950 MHz and 5091- 5250 MHz), to achieve the goals of this solicitation. Our proposed WATT architecture will employ state of the art, highly integrated, wideband Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMI ...
