  1. Discovery

    SBC: Semandex Networks Inc.            Topic: SB171005

    During the phase I effort, Semandex Networks and its team designed and implemented a proof-of-concept cloud-based application for knowledge navigation and document discovery that combines powerful text analytics with an intuitive UI. The prototype capability is poised to transform current data archival systems into meaningful connected information.The proof-of-concept prototype developed during th ...

  2. Adaptive Control and Advanced Sensing for Turbine Based Combined Cycle Vehicles

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: SB171014

    Development of air vehicles capable of routine operation and able to achieve hypersonic speeds is paced by the availability of a propulsion system.The vision is to combine improved off-the-shelf turbines for low-speed operation (M=0 to 2+) and dual-mode ramjet (DMSJ) engine technologies for high-speed operation (M=2+ to 5+), with both engines sharing a common air inlet and a common thrust producin ...

  3. Identification and Modification of Features in Embedded Devices

    SBC: Red Balloon Security, Inc.            Topic: SB0142002

    Unlike conventional computers, the embedded computers found in vehicles, routers and other Internet of Things devices lack the capability to have their software remotely updated. Vulnerabilities discovered in such devices remain unpatched, creating a large and growing attack surface. We propose to address this limitation in our Identification and Modification of Features in Embedded Devices (IMFED ...

  4. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...

  5. Transgenic Black Soldier Flies for Sustainable, Improved Nutrition

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: SB163002

    We propose to continue our project generating transgenic insect with improved nutrition for humans and livestock, building on the milestones we have reached and will continue to develop in phase I. We have already demonstrated insertion of exogenous reporter DNA into the insect, and continue to develop genetic engineering tools and techniques. We have expressed the biosynthetic pathway of interest ...

  6. New Platform Technologies for Viral and Therapeutic Evolution Assays

    SBC: Autonomous Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: SB171003

    From HIV to metastatic cancer, state-of-the-art therapeutics are static biological or pharmaceutical compoundswhose efficacy is inevitably lost once their evolving disease targets sufficiently mutate.We engineered the first adaptive therapeutics designed to co-adapt with adapting disease agentsto provide resistance-proof disease control. Known as Therapeutic Interfering Particles (TIPs), these the ...

  7. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  8. Real-Time Portable Neutron Spectroscopy

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: DTRA07002

    A critical gap in homeland security is the inability to efficiently detect and identify kilogram-size samples of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM, uranium and transuranic elements). Penetrating neutron emission is unique to fissionable material and difficult to obscure with passive shielding. The current state of the art in neutron imaging is not suitable for field applications. Michigan Aerospace ...

  9. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  10. 3D Diode-Cross-Coupled Tapered Lasers for Kilowatt-Class, Chip-Scale, Laser Diode Phased Arrays

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB062013

    Based on promising results obtained under our Phase 1 SBIR contract, nLIGHT wishes to proceed with a Phase 2 program. In the proposed program, nLIGHT will continue the development of high power, single-lateral-mode tapered diode lasers. nLIGHT has identified fundamental limitations to the operation of tapered diode lasers and proposes novel design and fabrication process improvements which direc ...
