  1. SHADE (Shared Awareness in Denied Environments): A Decision Support Tool for Mixed-Initiative Teams

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF19AT001

    SSCI and ASU (Prof. Nancy Cooke) propose to develop SHADE (Shared Awareness in Denied Environments) - a comprehensive decision support tool which will facilitate smooth mission execution under information degradation and losses in mixed initiative teams (MIT) involving collaborating autonomous vehicles. In Phase I we propose to perform initial development, integration and testing of the SHADE tech ...

  2. Tactical Interfaces for Teaming with Autonomy (TITAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT001

    Intuitive mission displays and planning capabilities are needed to enhance pilot and operator situation awareness when teaming with next-generation autonomous vehicles in tactical operations. To address this, we will design and demonstrate Tactical Interfaces for Teaming with Autonomy (TITAN) to increase the shared awareness for manned/unmanned teams in distributed and complex communications envir ...

  3. Machine Learning Methods to Catalog Sources from Diverse, Widely Distributed Sensors

    SBC: Introspective Systems, LLC            Topic: AF19AT012

    The efficient detection and understanding of clandestine nuclear device testing is critical to the security and credibility of the organizations currently tasked with this important work. At present, the Air Force Tactical Applications Center (AFTAC) and likewise, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) are running methods and algorithms that are out of date. These approaches use a ...

  4. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    HPM (high power microwave) weapons could disable vehicles, enable vehicle recovery, and reduce collateral damage. Metamagnetics, in partnership with Professor Jane Lehr (University of New Mexico), and General Atomics propose a completely solid-state HPM system based on their work in Gyromagnetic Nonlinear Transmission Lines (gNLTL) and compact High-Gain Slotted Waveguide Antennas. The system will ...

  5. Deep Agent with Self-learning for Human Events Recognition (DASHER)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: AF18BT002

    Automated analysis of human activities and events on the ground from aerial videos is key to extracting critical situational awareness and gathering actionable intelligence. It poses multiple challenges, including dynamic backgrounds that can be confused with foreground, multiple simultaneous activities in the field of view, occurrence of unknown activities, and large data volume and velocity. The ...

  6. Joint User-centered Planning artificial Intelligence Tools for Effective mission Reasoning (JUPITER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Effective mission planning is critical for military strategy and execution. This process is complex as human operators must consider many variables (e.g., resource limitations, threats, risks) when formulating a plan to accomplish mission goals. Although powerful tools, such as the Navy’s Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS), provide advanced functionality, mission planning remains a hybrid acti ...

  7. Robust, Low Permeability, Water-Filled Microcapsules

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N19BT030

    Triton Systems proposes to develop a process to synthesize water filled microcapsules that are able to contain the water in the microcapsules for extended (years) periods of time. We will develop accelerated aging tests to measure the water loss over the equivalent of 20 years of more. We will also measure the mechanical strength of the microcapsules before and during exposure to jet fuel, and whe ...

  8. Machine Learning and Data Fusion platform for Phenotype-based Pathogen Identification

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: ST18C002

    Conventional methods for detecting pathogens, which are based on culturing the microorganism, are time-consuming and laborious. Machine learning provides an alternative path to identify pathogens using supervised learning algorithms. Most current computational tools utilize genomic or protein data to identify bacteria. These methods look for features in the whole genome that correlate to pathogeni ...

  9. Station-keeping using Perception and Relative Image-based Navigation and Tracking (SPRINT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: ST18C006

    SSCI and MIT propose to perform initial design and testing of an innovative tightly-coupled vison and GNC system for follower vehicles to achieve safe approach and station-keeping with the lead vehicle within some range tolerance and inside a 60 degree cone, under leader maneuvers and vehicle capability constraints. The resulting system is referred to as the SPRINT (Station-keeping using Perceptio ...

  10. Visual Algorithms for Navigation and Guidance of UAVs with Autonomous Relational Decisions (VANGUARD)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST18C006

    Unmanned systems play a critical role in military operations across a wide range of missions. The DoD’s Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap identifies leader-follower tactics, swarming capabilities, sensor advancements, collision avoidance, and GPS-denied solutions as key technologies to support autonomy. Advances in these areas are needed to support coordinated multi-aircraft maneuvers and swar ...
