  1. Greener Plastics with High Heat Tolerance for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Advances in materials and automation are rapidly reshaping the American manufacturing economy, and must be embraced to sustain a strong manufacturing sector in the United States. Additive manufacturing is possibly the fastest growing example of this trend, growing at an astonishing compound annual growth rate of 25.7%. The plastic materials market for additive manufacturing, valued at $700M in 202 ...

  2. Renewable Bioplastics Production

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Current petroleum-derived-plastics contain additives such as phthalates or bisphenolA that are harmful to human health and the environment. Thus, it’s critical to replace such toxic non-biodegradable plastics with biodegradable bioplastics. To meet bioplastics production need, Altex, and Texas A&M University (TAMU) have teamed up to utilize renewable biomass, such as forest residue, agricultural ...

  3. PFAS Analyzer- A fieldable device for the broad-spectrum analysis of PFAS in water, soil, and sediments

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 18NCERP2

    Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are used in food packaging, as coatings for cloth (e.g. Scotchgard), firefighting foams, electronics, and industrial and automotive components. Being perfluorinated species, they are engineered to breakdown slowly (half-life >92 years in water), and thus persist for very long times. Their high water-solubility makes them especially dangerous, and much like perchlo ...

  4. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181006

    Toyon proposes to research and develop algorithms for generalized salient change detection, and to incorporate these algorithms into software tools implemented on the cloud. Our approach leverages the two most promising methods from Phase I, both based on supervised learning. The first method is the entropy-based feature vector and corresponding neural network, which we will apply at a coarse sear ...

  5. A Multi-Branch Network for Automated VNIIRS Assessment of Motion Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA191003

    Due to the lack of consistency in existing automated methods for assigning VNIIRS levels to motion imagery, and the overwhelming human resources required to manually assign levels, a new method of automated/semi-automated VNIIRS assessment is needed. In recent years, advancements in deep learning have provided solutions to previously intractable computer vision problems. In many cases, automated d ...

  6. Multi-hop processing for OTHR range extension

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA191011

    The development of sophisticated anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) capabilities by our adversaries requires us to develop long range capabilities to mitigate this A2/AD threat. Extending the range of Over The Horizon Radars beyond their conventional single hop operating mode will potentially provide coverage out to 10000 km and beyond. We propose combining existing state-of-the art HF radar ray prop ...

  7. Tools for Memory Hierarchy Optimization on Pre-Exascale HPC Architectures

    SBC: EP ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA172003

    DTRA uses High Fidelity Computer Codes (HFCC) to investigate weapon effects and techniques for countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). End-to-end HFCC simulations in support of the DTRA Agent Defeat Warfighter Capability will require calculations including multiple phenomena that occur in vastly different time scales (µ-sec to hours). As DTRA becomes increasingly reliant on computational mo ...

  8. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA172002

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop algorithms that improve the precision and recall of neural networks for low-shot object classification and detection. Our approach is based upon developing a descriptive multi-domain feature representation of the low-shot target as well as the surrounding context. A multi-branch neural network merges the various domains of information to perform accur ...

  9. Graspable Math Activities

    SBC: GRASPABLE INC            Topic: 91990019R0012

    Graspable Math Activities is web application that middle and high school students use on laptops and tablets to practice algebra and receive instantaneous feedback. Activities are based on an algebra notation technology that can promote procedural fluency while allowing students to focus on strategy and the connection between concepts and procedures. The team will produce a website that will inclu ...

  10. Story Mode for Teaching Cross-Curricular Coding Projects

    SBC: CODESPARK, INC.            Topic: 91990019R0012

    In previous R&D, the developers created codeSpark Academy, a game that employs a visual and block-based approach with puzzles to teach coding skills to students ages 5 to 9 years old. codeSpark Academy is in widespread use in and out of schools around the world. In this project, the developers will expand storytelling creative tools within the existing game. The pretend-play scenarios will include ...
