  1. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  2. Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder

    SBC: Brandywine Photonics, LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose developing a new observational capability for measuring upper atmosphere (20-Km to 200-Km+ altitude) wind and temperature dynamics, based on Doppler imaging of Limb concentrations of NO, N2O, and CO2 called the Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder. The principle of operation is that by measuring the Doppler shift of trace gases created by the differential velocity betwee ...

  4. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...

  5. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: iReprogram, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  7. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  8. Generating Material Properties From Flight Representative Structures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: ST16C002

    High-speed flight vehicles commonly use carbon / carbon (C/C) and carbon / silicon carbide (C/SiC) for structural components. These materials are chosen because of their superior structural properties at elevated temperatures. Most often, their properties are characterized using flat and thin material test plates. While this approach is convenient, it is not guaranteed to yield material properties ...
