The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Formal Synthesis and Verification Techniques for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: SIFT's Phase 2 Hy-CIRCA proposal builds on progress in Phase 1 to address the challenge of effectively, reliably, and safely tasking cooperating teams of autonomous cyber-physical systems (CPSs). SIFT's Playbook(tm) interface approach provides high-level, goal-based tasking for multi-agent autonomous missions. SIFT's Cooperative Intelligent Real-Time Control Architecture (CIRCA) automa ...

  2. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: VirtusAero LLC            Topic: AF161024

    For a vehicle in hypersonic flight, the natural transition of a boundary layer from laminar to turbulent flow depends on multiple factors including the free-stream conditions, the noise level and frequency spectrum of free-stream disturbances, the geometry of the vehicle and the vehicle surface properties.To predict boundary layer transition for flow over a given vehicle, one or more of these fact ...

  3. GEMINI: Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161045

    ABSTRACT: SIFT proposes to build GEMINI (Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence), a shared workspace where humans and machines collaboratively assemble intelligence products. In a human-machine team, the collaborators have vastly different-- albeit complementary-- cognitive capabilities. Thus, a central research challenge is to expressively and soundly translate from analyst-centric interfaces (for ...

  4. SAVANT: Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161063

    SIFT, working with research partner Dr. Richard Linares, proposes to develop SAVANT a Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool. SAVANT will rapidly assess the vulnerability of blue space assets to potential ground and space-based threats, and provide a heightened awareness of the mission impact posed by these threats so that space commanders may make timely decisio ...

  5. Shape Extraction and Equivalent Key Recognition (SEEKER)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: AF161139

    ABSTRACT: The proposed Shape Extraction and Equivalent KEy Recognition (SEEKER) program will perform Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) of small targets (e.g. vehicles) from airborne LIDAR point clouds using a new method of recognition based on topological techniques. Recent years have seen rapid progress in the data collection abilities of airborne surveillance plat- forms. Key challenges remain ...

  7. Radiation Hardened Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: Trusted Semiconductor Solutions Inc.            Topic: AF151089

    ABSTRACT: Data transmission in communication systems, RADARs, satellite systems, and other military devices are dominated by analog data conversion. High performance, low power digital to analog converters (DAC) that exceed 3Gsps with 12 bits of resolution and are available in the commercial marketplace, but they lack the radiation hardness required to support military satellite applications.Trust ...
