  1. Extracting Valid Inferences from Data, Evidence, and Novel Tests (EVIDENT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT01

    ABSTRACT: A recent study by the National Research Council found that sophisticated statistical techniques are finding their way into DoD operational test design, but that current DoD practices are still substantially behind the state of the art. The study concluded this has resulted in inefficient test designs, wasted resources, and less effective acquisition decision making. US Air Force test an ...

  2. Biologically Inspired Plasmonic Integrated Multi-Color Sensors (BI-PIMS)

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: In this program, Agiltron, Inc. and Harvard University will develop a biologically-inspired integrated sensor that can detect the UV, visible (VIS), near infrared (NIR), and mid-wave infrared (MWIR) bands. This sensor will be integrated with plasmonic filters to provide additional information from the radiation field that may not be available to common image sensors. The advanced integr ...

  3. Game-Theoretic Space Situational Analysis Toolbox (GaTSSAT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: By considering multiple space-based teams of cooperative and/or uncooperative players with varying orbital geometries and defense/offense capabilities such as sporadic observations, jamming confrontations, and sparse communications, the main challenges in derivation of effective decisions for autonomous space systems are: (a) development of effective game models and game training algori ...

  4. Development of an Innovative System for Cryodeposit Mitigation and Redmediation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) propose to develop an innovative system to measure and control the cryodeposit layer thickness that develops on cold surfaces in cryogenic radiometric calibration chambers. The system includes: 1) an in-situ, interferometric-based instrument to monitor the cryodeposit layer thickness, 2) a mitigation sy ...

  8. Optical Remote Detection of Low Level Earth Surface Vibrations

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT02

    ABSTRACT: Remote optical detection of ground vibrations could potentially enable discovery of subterranean and camouflaged activity. The basic challenges are to acquire a detailed physical understanding of the detected signal and develop a system at reasonable cost with sensitivity to extremely small fractional light modulations. Under this effort Spectral Sciences, Inc., in collaboration with ...

  9. Signatures of Interacting Groups via Network Attributes Learning (SIGNAL)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: ST12B002

    The analysis of interactions within social media has received significant attention in recent years with respect to cybercrime prevention, online marketing, counter-espionage, political opinion trending, and intelligence analysis. However, while detailed study of these interactions might lead to powerful insights, the sheer quantity of data generated via social media makes manual analysis infeasib ...

  10. Forecasting Dynamic Group Behavior in Social Media

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: ST12B002

    We propose to develop novel, scalable technology for detection and of tracking of new and existing groups in social media, together with a comprehensive set of indicators for inferring group activities and interactions. Focusing initially on Twitter data, our approach will extend existing"static"models of community structure to properly fuse both topic-based and topological information, and will u ...
