  1. Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T001

    In our Adaptive Management and Mitigation of Uncertainty in Fusion (AMMUF) project, we will model the entire multi-sensor fusion process as a probabilistic model and reason about the different design and algorithmic decisions that can be made by system engineers. This fusion model will use standard fusion system representations and ideas from statistical relational learning field to create flexibl ...

  2. A High-Level Operator Abstraction for GPU Graph Analytics

    SBC: Royal Caliber            Topic: ST13B004

    We are proposing a new software framework for analyzing very large graphs using massively parallel processors (GPUs). This framework will be commercialized on a cloud platform that gives users immediate access to highly advanced big-data analytics through a user-friendly web interface, as well as an HTTP API for easy integration. The platform can be deployed on a private cloud if desired. The sy ...

  3. A Rapid Optical Approach to Quantitative Composite Bond Quality Assessment

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N13AT011

    Widely used composite materials reduce aircraft weight and cost, improve structural performance, and boost fuel efficiency. However, composites are susceptible to adhesive bond line quality issues, both in initial fabrication and in service related bonding failures. Detection of weakened bonds requires an easy diagnostic approach to routinely monitor composite aircraft health. Our proposed solutio ...

  4. Bonded Joint Analysis Method

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N12AT004

    During Phase I and Phase II, M4 Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories have created a unique bonded joint analysis methodology and associated software. During Phase II.5, the developed techniques will be further enhanced and a fully functional commercial analysis code (SIMULIA/Abaqus) plug-in will be created. The software plug-in will make the advanced technology accessible to all leve ...

  6. Compact CMOS-Compatible Optical Transceiver

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF14AT13

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the research group of Professor Richard Osgood at Columbia University propose to develop a compact optical transceiver based on devices fabricated on a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) platform. The recent development of novel integrated structures in silicon including waveguides, resonators, and photodetectors will enable dramatic reductions in size, ...

  7. Compressive Sensing Flash IR 3D Imager

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A15AT007

    Physical Sciences Inc. in collaboration with Colorado State University proposes to develop a compact infrared flash 3D imaging sensor employing compressive sensing (CS) approaches. The CS 3D sensor offers a combination of high range resolution (10 cm), high point cloud density (6464 format), and fast 3D image frame rates (10 Hz) in a low cost, compact form factor employing commercial off the shelf ...

  8. Conformal Passivation of High Aspect Ratio HgCdTe Surfaces by ALD Using a Novel Cd-Precursor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A13AT013

    "HgCdTe is the material of choice for high performance infrared red focal plane arrays (IRFPA) used in militarys night vision systems. One of the major problems IRFPA manufacturers face is the ineffective passivation of the highly reticulated HgCdTe detector surfaces, which results in poor performance. Furthermore, newly evolved FPA technology requires the creation of much challenging high-aspect ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...
