  2. Adaptive multi-sensor wide area situational awareness system

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: AF12BT14

    ABSTRACT: Confronted by a vast quantity of data, presented piecemeal, sporadically and at varying levels of detail, the human analyst is often overwhelmed when trying to effectively monitor even medium-sized areas of interest. Offline, there is a wealth of data, resolution, and time to pick through and find activities of interest. Given a large amount of high resolution data, we can simulate situ ...

  5. New Rare Earth Free High Performance Permanent Magnets with High Energy Product and Mechanical Strength

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    Recently, the availability of the high performance rare earth based magnets (Nd-Fe-B and Sm-Co) was jeopardized due to the Chinese monopoly of rare earth production, which undermines our national security and competitiveness in the defense and clean energy sectors and creates a strategic vulnerability for the United States. This STTR proposal aims at developing the next generation of rare earth f ...

  6. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This Phase I program is focused on enhancement of the performance of MgZnO based solar blind detectors. MgZnO alloys have superior optoelectronic properties with bandgaps suitable for solar blind detection. Issues related to doping and miscibility will be addressed. This will involve the use of advanced MOCVD and MBE growth techniques and consideration of both Schottky and p-n junction devices. No ...

  7. Effective Cyber Situation Awareness (CSA) Assessment and Training

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T08

    The recent increase in cyber attacks against United States critical assets has greatly expanded the need for effective cyber defenses. Human cyber analysts are an essential element in these efforts. Information overload and a concomitant lack of comprehensive cyber situation awareness are common problems that hamper the effectiveness of analysis. Systems that can carry out human-in-the-loop simula ...

  10. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor has been shown to be an effective element as the core of a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The response of the computing circuit is the result of weighted external stimuli, the current state of the device, and the history of exposure by the device to the stimuli. A highly specialized version of the device, as developed by the Advanc ...
