  1. 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 ...

  2. Rapid Discovery of Evasive Satellite Behaviors

    SBC: Data Fusion & Neural Networks, LLC            Topic: AF17CT02

    The DF&NN team has significant experience in delivering Space Domain Awareness tools. These tools will be applied to 2 years of GEO ephemeris data of active satellites at DF&NN. The RDESB prototype will reduce the risk in rapidly discovering the behavioral patterns of potentially evasive and/or ambiguous active resident space objects. RDESB will detect non-Keplerian behavior in ephemeris data for ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Operational Outer Zone Energetic Charged Particle Model

    SBC: Space Sciences Innovations INC            Topic: AF17CT03

    The goal of the proposed work is to provide the Air Force with a state-of-the-art model of the outer zone energetic charged particles, including data assimilation capabilities. The UCLA-developed Versatile Electron Radiation Belt (VERB) model will be optimized for various measurements obtained on various satellite orbits by different instruments. We will transfer VERB code to SSI, test and validat ...

  6. Rapid SERS-based Detection of Sepsis and TBI Biomarkers

    SBC: Ionica Sciences, Inc            Topic: DHA17B004

    Traumatic brain injury (TBI) often occurs when a sudden trauma or head injury disrupts the function of the brain. Common causes of TBI include damage caused by explosive devices, falls and vehicle or motorcycle accidents. Sepsis is the result of a massive immune response to bacterial infection that gets into the blood. Sepsis often leads to organ failure or injury, and has always been a significan ...

  8. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta is partnering with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combine Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF electrometer will ...

  10. Disposal of Aqueous Film-Forming Foam using Hydrodynamic Cavitation

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: AF17BT001

    The widespread use of Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AFFF) at DOD facilities for firefighting, training, and fire suppression systems has resulted in numerous contamination sites. The perfluoroalkyl (PFA) compounds used in the AFFF, such as perfluoroalkyl sulfonates (PFOS) and perfluoroalkyl carboxylic acids (PFOA) are extremely stable in the environment and have been shown to be resistant to typical ...
