Analog Co-Processors for Complex System Simulation and DesignSBC: Arete Associates Topic: ST15C002
It has long been known that analog computers can be faster and more power efficient than digital processors by many orders of magnitude. Until the 1970s analog computers were the dominant controllers in most industrial and military applications. Even today digital processors are still slower and more power consumptive than analog, but offer much more flexibility (programmability) and precision. ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Context-driven Active-sensing for Repair Tasks II (CART II)SBC: DYNAMIC OBJECT LANGUAGE LABS, INC. Topic: ST14B003
Existing machine perception systems are too inflexible, and are not robust enough to environmental uncertainty. In existing systems, perception components are statically (and manually) configured to process sensor data. The parameters of components in such a system are also statically tuned to operate optimally under very specific conditions. Information flow in such systems is bottom up, and gene ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Detecting Substandard, Nonconforming, Improperly Processed and Counterfeit MaterielSBC: VIBRANT CORPORATION Topic: DLA15C001
Vibrant Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) propose to apply Process Compensated Resonance Testing (PCRT) to the DLA's need for an NDI method to detect counterfeit, nonconforming and improperly processed materiel. PCRT collects and analyzes the resonance frequencies of a component to detect structural defects, characterize material, analyze population variation, monitor manufacturin ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Logistics Agency
Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point of Care ApplicationsSBC: GeneCapture, Inc. Topic: CBD15C001
The modern warfighter faces the constant threat of endemic infections, multi-drug resistant bacteria and Biological Warfare Agents. In order to provide accurate front-line treatment that will curtail the overuse of antibiotics, a rapid and robust moleculaSTTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseOffice for Chemical and Biological Defense
Memristor-CMOS Analog Co-Processor for Efficient Computation of PDEsSBC: SPERO DEVICES, INC. Topic: ST15C002
Spero Devices is proposing design of a memristor-CMOS co-processor to implement analog Discrete Fourier Transforms (DFTs). The analog co-processor invokes spectral methods to solve a class of linear and non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs) arising in the scientific simulation of complex systems. Current PDE solution methods are inefficient and often intractable due to limitations assoc ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Revolutionary Airlift InnovationSBC: Logistic Gliders Inc. Topic: ST14B004
We propose to mature LG-X glider technology by manufacturing full-scaled prototypes and characterizing them in land-based flight-testing by using commercial aircraft to drop the gliders. Validated components such as the landing parachute, folding wing mechanism, and autopilot control system will undergo integrated flight-testing. Logistic Gliders will provide a considerable cost share to support ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Using Magnetic Levitation for Non-Destructive Detection of Defective and Counterfeit MaterielSBC: Nano Terra, Inc. Topic: DLA15C001
The introduction of substandard or counterfeit materials into the DoD supply chain can have extremely expensive, and potentially life threatening, consequences. Current techniques used to detect nonconforming materiel can be destructive (e.g., manual sectioning and inspection of a part), time consuming and expensive (e.g., micro-computed tomography, ultrasound), or provide only limited informatio ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Logistics Agency
