  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. 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 ...

  3. Pathogen Classification Tool (PaCT)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST18C002

    Stottler Henke proposes PaCT, leveraging our related past work in computer vision and machine learning. Drawing from techniques used in ExPATSS, a Phase II SBIR effort slated for transition to the Naval fleet, PaCT will perform bacterial characterization using features derived from the phenotype of the bacteria. PaCT will predict bacterial characteristics such as pathogenicity, antibiotic resistan ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Visual Relative Navigation via Intelligent Ephemeral Relationships (VRNIER)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C006

    As unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) become more prevalent there is an increasing desire to automate UAS navigation and control. To enable future UASs to perform a wider variety of missions, the they must be able to complete autonomous relative navigation to accomplish missions. Current technologies rely heavily on GPS measurements, which are undesirable since GPS signals may be unavailable in many ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. StampPump: a Postage-Stamp Sized Autonomous Glycemic Control Mechanism for Patients Suffering Glycemic Abnormalities as a Result of Critical Illnesses

    SBC: Thermalin Inc.            Topic: ST18C004

    StampPump is a postage-stamp-sized (27x27x6 mm), fully-self-contained, closed-loop insulin patch pump system that is filled at the factory with enough insulin to treat a person with T1- or trauma-induced hyperglycemia for a full week. The device is shelf stable for at least 90 days and so is compatible with critical-care or forward deployment use. We propose to augment this system with the ability ...

  8. Building an Autonomous Glycemic Control System for Hyperglycemia of Critical Illness

    SBC: Beta Bionics, Inc.            Topic: ST18C004

    It is well established that hyperglycemia of critical illness, general glucose intolerance, and insulin resistance are common among critically ill patients, including those without a diagnosis of diabetes mellitus upon hospital admission. Such glycemic dysregulation has been linked to increased patient morbidity and mortality, and longer recovery times. Furthermore, tight glycemic control has been ...

  9. SBDUV APD/GPD detector arrays

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: ST18C003

    The goal of the research is to provide a solar-blind, deep-UV photo-detector array that can be used in instruments detecting chemical and biological agents, such as TAC-BIO II, using UV Raman and Fluorescence measurements. The overall approach is to develop a solid-state detector array that achieves the performance goals for QE (>70%), gain (>1E6), dark current (

  10. Development of Autonomous Glycemic Control Mechanism for Patients Suffering Glycemic Abnormalities as a Result of Critical Illnesses

    SBC: PROFUSA, INC.            Topic: ST18C004

    The use of continuous glucose monitors can be an invaluable management tool for patients afflicted by glycemic variability due to critical illness or trauma. Maintaining stable glucose levels enhances health and lowers care costs, and individuals equipped with continuous glucose data have significantly improved outcomes. Profusa has developed highly miniaturized, injectable, tissue-like, glucose s ...
