  1. Additive Manufacturing Sensor Fusion Technologies for Process Monitoring and Control.

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a modern and increasingly popular manufacturing process for metallic components, but suffers from well known problems of inconsistent quality of the finished product. Process monitoring and feedback control are therefore crucial research areas with a goal of solving this problem. To address this concern, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) and the University of Dayton Res ...

  4. SAMPA: Security Analysis and Monitoring to Prevent Abuse of HPC Environments

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    In general, HPC systems should not be used to carry out cybercrimes or execute improper jobs- Existing fingerprinting-based solutions can be used to understand what are running on HPC systems, but they typically are reactive, require system-wide data collection and processing, and do not consider adversarial scenarios- Hence, it is essential to build offline code analysis tools that can provide fi ...

  5. Improved Light Extraction for a 130 lm/W OLED Lighting Panel

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: 14b

    One of the major hurdles to the commercialization of OLED lighting technology is its low light extraction efficiency when compared to inorganic LEDs- Currently only ~ 30% of the light produced by the OLED can be extracted- In order to be considered as a commercially viable option, OLED efficacy has to improve dramatically- The mismatch between the refractive indices among the active layer, transpa ...

  8. Enabling Intelligent Security Assessment for HPC Systems via Automated Learning and Data Analytics

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Software protection and its associated tools can be regarded as a first line of defense for run-time integrity in an High Performance Computing (HPC) system, but cannot be easily extended to provide security solution beyond the software level. Hence, it is also essential to build a system-wide security analysis tool to assess the entire HPC system’s security. The major challenges for building su ...
