  1. Risk-Based Unmanned Air System (UAS) Mission Path Planning Capability

    SBC: ACTA, LLC            Topic: N17BT034

    In this Phase I Project ACTA and its partners will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a risk-based mission path planning (RB MPP) approach. Areas of interest to the Navy where a RB MPP address critical needs include enabling less restrictive UAS operations within the US National and Foreign Airspaces. The Phase I will demonstrate feasibility with a two-step approach. The first step will dem ...

  2. Cognitive Risk Management for UAS Missions

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N17BT035

    Enabling operators to command and control multiple UAVs will require higher levels of supervisory control, enabling vehicles to operate autonomously during larger portions of each mission. For the foreseeable future, however, critical portions of each mission will require operators to apply their superior knowledge, judgment, and skills to assess the situation, monitor execution more closely and, ...

  3. Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) for Autonomous Teams of UAS Platforms

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: N17BT035

    OKSI and Professor Matthew Taylor will develop the Cognitive Adaptation and Mission Optimization (CAMO) command and control tool for teams of UAS platforms. CAMO will incorporate existing databases (e.g., NASA population maps, FAA airspace maps, etc.) as well as real-time data from UAS into a learning-based cognitive control solution that maximizes mission performance while minimizing risk for a t ...

  5. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...

  6. Embedded Space Analytics

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: N16AT020

    Navy needs a real-time graph embedding tool for analyzing huge graphs (millions of nodes and billions of edges) from diverse sources. However, current approaches cannot provide dynamic and scalable graph analytics to signify the military value of tactical data. In this project, InfoBeyond advocates EStreaming (Embedding & Streaming) for scalable and efficient graph streaming. EStreaming promotes b ...

  7. Target Tracking via Deep Learning

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT027

    Persistent tracking of high-value targets is of great interest for reconnaissance and surveillance applications. In recent work, deep neural networks have demonstrated excellent performance on the popular Visual Object Tracking (VOT) challenge; however, these algorithms have not been tested on applications of interest to the Air Force, such as ground vehicle tracking in video recorded from Unmanne ...

  8. Adaptive and Smart Materials for Advanced Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT018

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies covering a broad range of technologies and processes have been under continuous and accelerating development since the 80s. While there are still fundamental hurdles such as low production rates and small sizes, AM holds tremendous promise in terms of revolutionizing manufacturing. Recent trends include direct-printing and incorporating sensors and electr ...

  9. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface ...

  10. Polychromatic guide-stars using novel optically pumped semiconductor disk lasers

    SBC: Crystalline Mirror Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF17AT005

    During the last two decades, vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) have emerged as excellent high-power laser sources that combine diode-pumping, broad-pump tolerance, wavelength selectivity, narrow linewidth, broad tunability, high beam quality, compactness, and efficiency into one attractive package. These characteristics make them an ideal candidate for use as more economic ...
