  1. PARTEL: Periscope video Analysis using Reinforcement and TransfEr Learning

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N20AT007

    We propose a suite of video processing algorithms utilizing the machine learning (ML) techniques of artificial intelligence (AI) reinforcement learning, deep learning, and transfer learning to process submarine imagery obtained by means of periscope cameras. Machine learning (ML) can help in addressing the challenge of human failure of assessing the data of periscope imagery. Though pre-tuned blac ...

  2. Air-Sea Thermal Energy Harvesting on an Arctic Buoy

    SBC: SEATREC, INC.            Topic: N20AT023

    Seatrec will collaborate with a team from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to demonstrate the technical feasibility and commercial applicability of a novel energy harvesting system that converts thermal energy from high-latitude air-sea temperature differences into electricity.  This capability will extend the endurance and capability of observing system elements, reduce battery waste, a ...

  3. Frequency and Phase Locking of Magnetrons Using Varactor Diodes

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N20AT015

    Magnetrons are compact, inexpensive, and highly efficient sources of RF power used in many industrial and commercial applications. For most of these applications, the requirement is for RF power without regard to precise frequency or phase control, and noise riding on the RF signal is not important. For many accelerator, defense, and communications applications, however, these characteristics prev ...

  4. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: Flow Pharma, Inc.            Topic: CBD18A002

    Through this STTR contract, we propose to evaluate the efficacy of our vaccine, FlowVax Marburg, in nonhuman primates (NHPs). This will be achieved through four Tasks. In Task 1, we will manufacture the vaccine in a quantity sufficient for the animal studies. In Task 2, we will perform MHC genotyping on a representative population of NHPs and, based on results, select a set of MHC-matched NHPs for ...

  5. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terrible morbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditional vaccines have contributed greatly to public health, they have some limitations especially in the context of operati ...

  6. Novel Circulating RNA-based Markers as Diagnostic Biomarkers of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD18A001

    In resource limited settings, rapid and accurate diagnosis of infections is critical for managing potential exposures to highly virulent pathogens, whether occurring from an act of bioterrorism or a natural event. This is especially important for hard to detect intracellular bacterial and alphavirus infections, that overlap symptomatically and often treated empirically due to a lack of reliable an ...

  7. Multi-scale Physics-based Modeling of Particle-Impact Erosion of CMCs

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N19BT033

    Sand particles ingested into aeroengines can impinge on components made of ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs) and cause structural damage including long-term erosion. Experimental analysis of erosion typically focuses on the damage footprint and mass loss and is limited in the range of operating parameters that can be examined. Hence, high-fidelity modeling of the erosion process is essential to der ...

  8. Analysis and Modeling of Erosion in Gas-Turbine Grade Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: ALPHASTAR TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N19BT033

    A significant barrier to the insertion of ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials into advanced aircraft engines is their inherent lack of toughness under erosion and post erosion. Our team will develop and demonstrate a physics-based model for erosion/post erosion of CMC’s at room and elevated temperatures (RT/ET). The ICME (Integrated Computational Material Engineering) Physics based Multi Sc ...

  9. Hexahedral Dominant Auto-Mesh Generator

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: N20AT004

    The objective of our proposed STTR phase-I work is to transition the latest advancements within the academic community to the design of a robust, user-friendly, and application-oriented tool for automatic hex-dominant meshing. Our software will fully couple CAD models to the discretized domain required by finite element software in structural analysis and other simulation and modeling applications ...

  10. Hexahedral Dominant Auto-Mesh Generator

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N20AT004

    Advances in both software and computer hardware have made the finite element method the preeminent choice for analyzing highly complex systems that are of great value to the Department of Defense.   The US Defense industry, however, continues to spend enormous time and resources in mesh generation, a key step in finite element analysis, despite progress that has been made in automated mesh gener ...
