  1. Nucleobase aminosugars with reduced ototoxicity

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: Y

    PROJECT SUMMARYAminoglycosides are one of the cheapest and well known antibiotics in clinical use for overyearsbut one of the major limitations in their use is their ototoxicityWe are developing fast and low cost methods to develop aminoglycosides with antiribosomal activities and reduced toxicityIn this projectwe will identify novel aminoglycoside antibacterialsthat show reduced ototoxicityComple ...

  3. Rapid Identification of Effects of Defects within Metal Additive Manufacturing (RIED-AM)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N18AT013

    Additive manufacturing (AM) systems, especially metal AM, bring revolutionary capabilities, but suffer from a lack of understanding of the defects that exist within the components. In this research, based on selective experimental study and numerical simulations, we will develop an empirical database of defects and their effects on mechanical properties using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) technol ...

  4. Nondestructive Evaluator for Polymer Ablatives (NEPAL)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: N18AT011

    Materials for thermal protection are required to protect structural components of space vehicles during the re-entry stage, missile launching systems, and solid rocket motors (SRMs). Polymer resins that have high char retention (e.g., phenolic resins) are the most common matrices in the composite materials for rigid thermal protection systems (TPSs) due to their tunable density, lower cost, and hi ...

  6. HASLOC: Hierarchical And-Or Structures forLocalization and Object Recognition

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF18AT014

    Target detection and recognition is a challenging problem because of changes in appearance, viewing direction, occlusion and other covariates. Systems that can accurately and efficiently detect and track objects can provide several benefits in surveillance, monitoring and other applications. As part of this effort, we propose to develop a robust learning-based approach to detect, track and recogni ...

  7. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF17CT02

    This is a prototype system that will take raw observation data, detect and characterize maneuvers, and use reinforcement learning to understand and react to evasive RSO behaviors in near real time. This will provide a framework to evaluate autonomous behavior strategies, such a safety, effectiveness, and robustness to manipulation. This work will enable surveillance operators to distinguish betwee ...

  8. Adaptive Markov Inference Game Optimization (AMIGO) for Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF17CT02

    Space superiority requires space protection and space situational awareness (SSA), which rely on rapid and accurate space object behavioral and operational intent discovery. The focus of this project is to develop a stochastic approach for rapid discovery of evasive satellite behaviors. Designing the innovative decision support tool has numerous challenges: (i) partial observable actions; (ii) eva ...

  9. Additive Manufacturing Sensor Fusion Technologies for Process Monitoring and Control.

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a modern and increasingly popular manufacturing process for metallic components, but suffers from well known problems of inconsistent quality of the finished product. Process monitoring and feedback control are therefore crucial research areas with a goal of solving this problem. To address this concern, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) and the University of Dayton Res ...
