  1. Closing and Opening Worlds: Integrity Constraints and Expressive Keys in OWL

    SBC: Clark & Parsia, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to evaluate tree dominant semantics for description logic integrity constraints, as well as multiple proposals for adding syntax for integrity constraint axioms, to the Web Ontology Language standard, OWL. Further, we propose to implement a semantics, in the form of a syntax compiler and data set validator, in order to establish the feasibility and utility of such work for the validatio ...

  2. Expressive Integrity Constraint Validation with OWL

    SBC: Clark & Parsia, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a commercially adequate, robust and perfomant OWL-based Integrity Constraint (IC) validation system with several innovations, including novel debugging and explanation support for data integrity errors; incremental and optimized validation of data integrity; and a unified system for validating structured, semi-structured, and semantic data. A rigorous and formal specification ...

  3. Otto

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF073089

    Multi-UAV supervisory control and UAVs operating along side of manned operations in the terminal approach area will not occur until improvements are made in UAV mission management. Indeed, the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board indicated that significant advancements needed to be made in the realm of mission management, vehicle autonomy, and human-computer interfaces. 21st Century Systems, Incorp ...

  4. Concurrent Agent-enabled Feature Extraction (CAFÉ)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T017

    High fidelity, large scale simulations of complex systems pose a very difficult situation to the scientist trying to understand the physical domain and characteristics of their system. Often, it is impossible to manually search through the data that can come out of these simulations, which may range from Gigabytes to Terabytes. Furthermore, it may be impossible to visualize the multi-dimensional i ...

  5. CoolAID

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T002

    Providing commanders with accurate, on-the-spot, clear, concise, usable information wins battles and saves lives. With incoming information from many heterogeneous sources, the focus has been primarily on determining what information to present, and visual ways of communicating the information. There has been less research on what makes information actionable, or on what additional communication c ...

  6. Space-ACE

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083039

    There is a need for a next-generation integrative decision support system for Space Control operations. This next-generation system should provide high-level capabilities for managing case files containing evidence, expert opinions, and data relationships. The system should enhance operator awareness by highlighting salient aspects of the case file, critical relationships, and confidence assessmen ...

  7. Video20/20

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF083016

    The monitoring of multiple UAV video sources is challenging, in part, due to the poor quality of the video received.  Significant video degrading is caused by clouds, haze, and dust in the atmosphere; jitter and blurring from the UAV platform motion; and low video resolution due to sensor characteristics and high altitude flying. Higher quality video would alleviate much of the challenge for the ...

  8. Improved Manufacturing Technologies for Polymer Matrix Composite Engine Components

    SBC: 2PHASE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF06115

    This proposal addresses the development and use of lightweight, low thermal-capacity reformable tooling materials for high-temperature composite processing evaluation, parts prototyping, trial production and full-rate production of PMC engine components. The weight-saving promise of high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) for engine components is offset by the very high costs of parts ma ...

  9. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF081051

    We will develop "flexible sensing" techniques that will enable a single sensor to perform the functions of both a "seeker" and a "target detection device". One set of approaches will comprise resolution enhancement and other techniques to extract target identification and tracking information, as would be provided by a "seeker", from a low resolution / high update rate sensor. Hyperacuity-based a ...

  10. Processing for Flexible Sensors

    SBC: Centeye, Inc.            Topic: AF081051

    The overall goal of this project is to develop a flexible acuity sensor (FAS), including both hardware and software, and demonstrate its ability to acquire and track moving targets in the environment, including when the sensor itself is moving. These sensors will utilize a proprietary Centeye vision chip capable of acquiring images at multiple resolutions and frame rates. The sensors developed wil ...
