  1. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  2. Freeform Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT001

    Traditional spherical optics implemented on a common optical axis are the foundation of today’s fielded gunsights for small arms fire control. SA Photonics has helped pioneer the application of precision injection molded freeform optical surfaces in head/helmet mounted display (HMD) systems for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and low light level sensor applications. SA Photonics tea ...

  3. Freeform Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: Optowares Incorporated            Topic: A19BT003

    In this program Optowares Inc., in collaboration with Professor Jay H. Park at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell (UML), proposes to develop a novel technique for uniform dispersion and alignment of short fiber reinforcement in highly loaded composite materials. The new approach combines the cutting-edge polymer composite synthesis and development methods at Optowares with the extensive exp ...

  4. Automating U-spline fluid-structure model development for mobility applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: A19BT006

    Dr. Thomas J.R. Hughes, senior advisor at Coreform, first introduced isogeometric analysis (IGA) in 2005. In the years since, it has been shown that smooth splines, the basic building blocks of IGA, allow for the use of relatively coarse meshes for accurate analysis in both finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Research results also show that IGA delivers improved a ...

  5. Low Temperature Atomic Layer Deposition of Manganese Telluride on Topological Insulator

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A19BT007

    Planar heterojunction comprised of topological insulator and magnetic insulator layers provide a unique opportunity to develop highly energy efficient electronics. The key challenge for the heterojunction is to fabricate a clean and abrupt interface between the two layers for efficient magnetic coupling. The growth of the magnetic materials should ideally be a low-temperature process in order to p ...

  6. Low Temperature Deposition of Magnetic Materials on Topological Materials

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: A19BT007

    n conjunction with ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic materials the topological insulators are elements of future magnetic random access memory (MRAM) and GHz-to-THz frequency sources (spin-torque nano-oscillators, STNO). One of the major challenges in applying topological insulators (TIs) in magnetic devices is the mutual incompatible deposition processes. TIs are usually destroyed by the high t ...

  7. Exploiting Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms for Extreme Performance

    SBC: Fit Genetics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT008

    Advances in DNA sequencing technology have generated a rapid expansion of human genome information and the revelation of extraordinary individual-level genetic variation. Individual genome sequencing will soon be routine and cost-effective. To exploit this resource to the benefit of warfighters, we propose an approach for identifying and characterizing genetic variants that compromise metabolic ef ...

  8. Metasurface-Enhanced Absorption in a Type II Superlattice Detector

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A19BT009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with the University of Texas, Austin (UT), propose to develop a metasurface-enhanced type-II superlattice (T2SL) imaging detector that achieves significant absorption enhancement for midwave infrared wavelengths (MWIR, 3–5 μm) using an absorbing layer with average thickness that is sub-micron. MWIR imaging is critical need for unmanned aircrafts an ...

  9. Sorbent-Polymer Passive Re-chargeable Thermal Battery for Cold Climate Operations

    SBC: THERMOPYLON LLC            Topic: A19BT014

    Cost effective and compact thermal energy storage systems that enable passive, non-powered, repeatable storage and release of heat could offer significant tactical and practical advantages for soldiers’ mission execution and success in a deployed setting of cold climates. Sorbent systems can store heat indefinitely, however, current sorbent-based technologies require storage tanks and complex co ...
