  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) as a Method to produce High Aspect Ratio Conductive Flakes for Advanced Bispectral or Infrared (IR) Obscuration

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: A19BT011

    This Phase I STTR proposal addresses the development of a low cost electrically conductive obscurant, with functionality in the visible and IR spectra. A commercial low-cost state of the art PVD process that is currently used to manufacture aluminum nanoflake will be adopted to produce copper nanoflakes with surface interference layers designed to produce conductive flakes that have a black appear ...

  6. High Performance, Non-flammable Lithium Battery

    SBC: American Lithium Energy Corp.            Topic: A19BT016

    The ALE-PNNL Team is developing a nonflammable high capacity and high power 18650 cell using nonflammable electrolyte for military electric vehicle and energy storage applications. The 18650 cells will be nonflammable even under extreme temperature conditions and after metal penetration, even including bullet penetration.

  9. 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 ...

  10. High Purity H2 from Sunlight via a Unique Combination of Novel Photodiodes and Membranes

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: A19BT015

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) together with University of Michigan (UMich) proposes a system to use solar energy to convert water to ultra-high purity compressed hydrogen suitable for PEM fuel cells. We will combine UMich’s high efficiency photocatalytic water splitting approach with PCI’s integrated hydrogen separator/compressor. The proposed effort will confirm the avoidance of external e ...
