  1. SHADE (Shared Awareness in Denied Environments): A Decision Support Tool for Mixed-Initiative Teams

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF19AT001

    SSCI and ASU (Prof. Nancy Cooke) propose to develop SHADE (Shared Awareness in Denied Environments) - a comprehensive decision support tool which will facilitate smooth mission execution under information degradation and losses in mixed initiative teams (MIT) involving collaborating autonomous vehicles. In Phase I we propose to perform initial development, integration and testing of the SHADE tech ...

  2. Tactical Interfaces for Teaming with Autonomy (TITAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT001

    Intuitive mission displays and planning capabilities are needed to enhance pilot and operator situation awareness when teaming with next-generation autonomous vehicles in tactical operations. To address this, we will design and demonstrate Tactical Interfaces for Teaming with Autonomy (TITAN) to increase the shared awareness for manned/unmanned teams in distributed and complex communications envir ...

  3. Sun-Tracking Millimeter Wave Radiometer

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: AF17CT01

    This Phase I STTR proposal describes the development of a dual frequency millimeter-wave sun tracking radiometer designed to measure total atmospheric attenuation from ground level to the top of the atmosphere.The suns brightness temperature, which is on the order of 10,000K at millimeter-wavelengths, provides an ideal background reference allowing high dynamic range estimation of total atmospheri ...

  4. Closed-Loop Extracranial Activation using Reinforcement-learning (CLEAR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...

  5. Metasurface optics for compact and scalable polarization cameras

    SBC: Metalenz Inc.            Topic: AF18AT005

    Metasurfaces are a fascinating new direction for producing small form factor optical elements that can be directly integrated with a variety of sensors and illumination sources. Metasurfaces have received extensive attention for their potential applications in imaging optics as they enable significantly more compact camera modules with enhanced functionality and because the unit processes to creat ...

  6. STAN: Scene and Target Analysis Network

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF18AT014

    The introduction of computer vision in precision-guided ammunition will potentially increase their targeting capabilities, in particular for moving targets such as tanks, vehicles and mobile command posts. EO/IR cameras offer a relatively inexpensive, low-SWaP payload solution which, combined with latest advances in SIMD hardware (GPUs), are finally starting to allow running sophisticated visual g ...

  7. Target Tracking via Deep Learning

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF17AT027

    To address the challenge of long-term tracking, through extended occlusions and significant appearance changes, we propose to continue developing DC-CAT, a Deep Convolutional neural network (CNN) based Confuser-Aware high value target (HVT) Tracker.The DC-CAT system combines a state-of-the-art CNN-based adaptive HVT tracker with a CNN-based pre-trained generic target detector, in a deep-feature-ai ...

  8. Hierarchical, Layout-Aware, Radiation Effects Tools Vertically Integrated into an EDA Design Flow for Rad-Hard by Design

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    The goal of this workis to establish a radiation-aware capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation resiliency for DoD ASIC designs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications.Such an integrated capability does not presently exist.The ...

  9. Diamond Cathode Coating for Spacecraft Charge Mitigation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF18AT011

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a composite laminate cathode coating based largely on consumer off the shelf (COTS) industrial materials functionalized to possess a low work function, negative electron affinity surface. The cathode coating is applicable to any surface of a spacecraft, regardless of shape or material, and allows passive one wire operation for spacecraft cha ...

  10. Orientation-patterned Semiconductor Crystals with Low Insertion Loss and High Resistance to Laser Damage

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF18AT016

    The Air Force needs tunable laser systems with high average power in the mid-infrared region of the spectrum for military applications including defense against heat-seeking missiles.Currently-fieldedlaser systems, based on nonlinear frequency conversion in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN), have limited optical power at wavelengths between 4 m and 5 m because of intrinsic absorption in th ...
