  1. Hypersonic Onboard Power and Thermal Management System Phase 2

    SBC: Special Power Sources, LLC            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Hypersonic vehicles offer promise as a platform to support rapid response missions worldwide.  However, hypersonic vehicles lack the ability to produce onboard power with traditional generators due to their use of supersonic combusting ramjets, which do not have rotating shafts from which power can be extracted. Therefore, hypersonic vehicles lack significant electrical power production for suppo ...

  2. Semi-supervised learning for image classification

    SBC: Enelect LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Semi-supervised learning is an approach to machine learning that combines a small amount of labeled data with a large amount of unlabeled data during training. Semi-supervised learning falls between unsupervised learning (with no labeled training data) and supervised learning (with only labeled training data). Unlabeled data, when used in conjunction with a small amount of labeled data, c ...

  3. Machine Learning Enabled Electrochemical Biosensor Rapid Diagnostic Platform


    The value of diagnostic tests and tools is undisputable whether it be for healthcare, homeland security, law enforcement, or environmental impact monitoring. While traditional diagnostic testing methods have progressed immensely in recent decades, there are still non-ideal aspects of common testing methods that prevent them from being more widely accessible2. For example, they are commonly analog ...

  4. Quiet, efficient propulsors for SSTOL and UAM

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Near peer competitors and adversaries increasingly hold fixed overseas U.S. military installations at risk, and the U.S. Air Force is adapting with new mobile and distributed basing and operations strategies. Rapid movement of personnel and supplies using aircraft that are not beholden to large, improved airfields is a critical enabler for such strategies. In addition, these agile, short-field or ...

  5. Onboard, Adaptive Flight Controls and Cooperative Mission Planning

    SBC: Asymmetric Technologies LLC            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Using Asymmetric’s IronClad Secure Flight Controller as a centralized hub, the team will implement a multi-copter-focused onboard health monitoring capability that is directly tied to adaptive, autonomous flight control and mission planning. This capability eliminates the need for slower, ground-based decision-making: if an airspace conflict is detected, the UAS can autonomously re-route itself ...

  10. Airborne SARS-CoV-2 sterilization via high-power UV-C LED arrays

    SBC: NITRIDE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AFX20DTCSO1

    Nitride Solutions intends to determine the commercial and technical feasibility for design of UV-C LED components for disinfection of SARS-CoV-2 for commercial and residential HVAC units. We believe that UV-C LEDs are the best sterilization solution to the issue of aerosol spread in HVAC systems, replacing current mercury-based lamps. NSI will use its expertise in UV-C LEDS, optical design and ref ...
