  1. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: TRX SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Military personnel often operate within urban, cavernous, foliage covered or indoor environments. In these areas, position navigation and time information becomes difficult and in some cases impossible to deduce from GPS signals alone. Under the proposed effort TRX will develop and implement an Android-based application that delivers GPS-denied navigation and mapping for tactical battlefield use. ...

  2. A Video ATR System for Vehicle Classification and Recognition

    SBC: IMAGECORP, INC.            Topic: SB031015

    ImageCorp, Inc. proposes to design and develop a deployable video automatic target recognition (ATR) system for vehicle classification and recognition using a single video stream. The system will be built by improving the performance of the existing Phase I prototype system which was based on fusing frame-based decisions made either by a support vector machine or a Hausdorff metric based classifie ...

  3. Better Muscles, Better World

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: NIH10001

    The development of actuators for the next generation of robots must not only address the engineering obstacles of power density and efficiency packaged into a lightweight form factor; they must surmount these obstacles using technology that is affordable for commercial users. To meet and exceed these challenges Vecna Robotics proposes the Bundle of McKibbens Actuators (BoMA), a novel approach that ...

  4. High Fidelity Synthesis of Dynamic Social Networks using Measurement-based Calibration

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    We propose to develop a systematic approach of synthetically generating diverse types of large-scale, dynamic and high fidelity social network data via measurement calibration. Social network research needs access to realistic social media datasets for testing social network theory and developing network algorithms. However, the available social network data are either small, static, or cannot be ...

  5. Efficient Small Antennas

    SBC: Pharad, LLC            Topic: SB082051

    The development of small, highly efficient antennas is critical for improving Warfighter communications capabilities. In this Phase II project Pharad will design, develop and demonstrate an electrically small UHF (225 – 400 MHz) antenna and RF front-end assembly based on the novel concepts created and investigated in Phase I for realizing highly efficient electrically small antennas. One of the ...

  6. Hierarchical Situation Visualization

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: SB072016

    Our primary objectives for Phase II are: 1) Demonstrate HTM applicability to the analysis of IED data under multiple use cases. We will work with analysts to determine appropriate analytical capabilities where HTMs can provide value and integrate them with their methodology; 2) design and implement a fully operational “version 1.0”, flexible, modular HTM-based tool called IDAPT. We anticipat ...

  7. A Novel Border Monitoring System Using Medium and High Resolution Commercial Satellite Images

    SBC: APPLIED RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB162009

    We propose a novel three-step border monitoring system to detect and describe potential risks for trans-border activities from commercial very high resolution imagery. This system also supports the development of a general level assessment of potential r...

  8. Actuating muscle for sustainable, minimally invasive energy harvesting

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SB143001

    Chronically implanted neural electrodes are used to treat various neurological and neuropsychological disorders and for brain-machine interfaces used to control advanced prosthetics. Powering these systems with batteries is risky due to loss of power and energy over time, necessitating additional surgery, creating a lapse in treatment and additional risks from potential exposure to toxic material. ...

  9. Reciprocity Aware PrOtocols for Radios (RAPOR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB132004

    Although conventional cryptographic security mechanisms are essential to the overall problem of securing wireless networks, these techniques do not directly leverage the unique properties of the wireless domain to address security threats. In short, traditional approaches leave out the wireless aspect of the wireless network they aim to protect. The properties of the wireless medium are a powerful ...

  10. Socio-computational Predictive Methods to Detect and Mitigate Bot Activity in Novel Information Environments

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N15AT020

    IAI proposes to continue understanding social bots behaviors, extract indicators, develop socio-computational models with predictive capabilities to detect bot and botnet (i.e., coordinated groups of bots) activity, measure the impact of bots and their effectiveness, and implement the algorithms and incorporate them in a mature social media analytics software tool. In particular, we will develop i ...
