  1. Advanced Command and Control Architectures for Autonomous Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT030

    We propose to develop an innovative open architecture for the semi-autonomous command and control (C2) of teaming Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The proposed architecture, based upon Toyon’s Decentralized Asset Management system, supports both centralized and decentralized fusion and control autonomy solutions as well as hybrids approaches. Leveraging STANAG-4586, TCP/IP, UPD, Google™ protob ...

  2. Blending Classical Model-Based Target Classification and Identification Approaches with Data-Driven Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT033

    Toyon Research Corp. and the University of California propose to develop innovative algorithms to perform automatic target recognition (ATR), localization, and classification of maritime and land targets in EO/IR, LiDAR, and SAR imagery. The proposed algorithms are based on recent developments made at the University of California, which outline a strong mathematical framework for naturally blendin ...

  3. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Epirus, Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    Epirus presents a high powered microwave source that leverages ultra high power density solid state materials, called Leonidas, to meet all of the government’s objectives for the vehicle stop and vessel stop mission. The Leonidas unit has already achieved over 10 kW of effective radiated power (ERP) in laboratory tests using software definable solid state technology and we show how this scales t ...

  4. Enhanced Sensor Resource Management Utilizing Bayesian Inference

    SBC: GCAS, Inc.            Topic: N19AT002

    This proposal describes the use of machine learning, data mining and Bayesian inference algorithms for incorporation into a surveillance aircraft cognitive radar system. The need for incorporation of higher-order uncertainty distributions will also be assessed. This will result in enhanced sensor resource management capability for surveillance aircraft radar.

  6. Nanophotonic Optical Emulator for Complex Electromagnetic Maneuverability (EM) Systems

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N19AT008

    The radar cross section (RCS) of a platform, such as a ship or a submarine, is of particular importance for the Navy since it allows the detection and identification of the vessel. Minimizing the radar reflection improves the stealth properties of the vessel making it more difficult to detect. The observed RCS can also be used to identify a target by comparing it with a database of known profiles. ...

  7. Near-IR Emulator for Complex EM Systems (NICE)

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N19AT008

    The NP Photonics/UMassD team proposes an ultra-compact coherent NIR RCS measurement range. We plan to develop a novel system for rapid 3D printing of nanostructures for emulating complex EM systems, and use coherent NIR light for scaled RCS measurements. In the NIR region, the EM properties of complex RF systems are measurable by reducing the size by factors of magnitude. The advantages of this ap ...

  8. 3-Band ps Pulse High Energy Compact Laser System for Marine Wave Boundary Layer Atmospheric Characterization Instrument Development

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N19AT009

    Gaining a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of maritime turbulence and laser light propagation in the marine boundary is required to optimize the performance of critical communication and defensive and offensive laser light engagements. Increased understanding of beam propagation through the turbulent flows of the marine layer will help the US Navy improve the performance of beam o ...

  9. Comprehensive Surf Zone Modeling Tool

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT010

    Areté Associates, along with STTR partner Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), are proposing a comprehensive software capability for scene generation, object insertion, and performance modeling for passive and active EO COBRA sensors over the surf zone. The Surf Zone Modeling Tool (SZT) will incorporate several technologies, including: open-source and Areté-designed SZ ocean physics models, ...

  10. Unified Logging Architecture for Performance and Cybersecurity Monitoring

    SBC: Real-time Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N19AT012

    We propose to develop an open, highly scalable, extensible and secure unified logging architecture for performance and cybersecurity monitoring for Naval Control Systems (NCSs). The primary goal of this architecture is to realize a centralized logging infrastructure for monitoring the status of the entire NCS through collecting and aggregating logs from all subsystems. It will be built upon widely ...
