  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. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA19T002

    The objective of this project is to develop a capability to model fracture of materials used in hypersonic vehicles that results from hypervelocity impact while exposed to extreme temperatures. Symplectic Engineering’s approach addresses this challenge at two levels. At the computational level, a Relaxed Extended Finite Element approach is pursued to represent (possibly intersecting) fractures l ...

  3. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T002

    This STTR research study aims to enhance and apply thermo-mechanically coupled computational models for high-temperature fracture. This topic is particularly challenging in that hypersonic flight in the atmosphere generates extreme conditions over a vehicle that can affect the strength and performance the vehicle materials, both in-flight conditions as well as for cases where the vehicle encounter ...

  4. QUARTERMASTER: Query and User-based Abductive Reporting Tool Enabling Responsive Multimodal Analysis of Simulated Technological Enterprise Records

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T003

    At the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), the system-wide approach to test engineering generates massive amounts of multi-dimensional data, which analysts explore to evaluate Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) configurations, engagement conditions, and target phenomena. Analyses are limited by time to construct each data query, technical knowledge, and size/complexity of the datasets and domain. T ...

  6. Secure Environment for Cyber Resiliency Evaluation of Missile Defense Systems (SEC-MDS)

    SBC: Scalable Network Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T004

    Current methods of validating the cyber resiliency of missile defense systems require testing of actual systems, which removes them from operation and subjects them to potentially damaging effects. Cyber ranges can be used as an alternative, but they are limited in scale, costly, time-consuming to configure and have limited capability to model wireless tactical networks and their inherent vulnerab ...

  7. High-Performance Monte Carlo Modeling System for Real-time Fire Control Schedulers

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA19T009

    The proposed work will develop a massively parallelized architecture for Monte Carlo simulation of real-time fire control schedulers. The parallelized architecture will utilize the recent developments in multiprocessing/multithreading technology based on graphical processing units. The system will be designed to perform in real-time assuming non-collocated sensors observing the threats and then co ...

  9. MAVERICK: Mixed-Automation Visualizer for Emerging Relationships & Insights in Complex Knowledge

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T001

    System-level simulations of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) generate extremely large quantities of highly multidimensional data, which analysts at the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) must explore and analyze to infer insights and relationships. Existing tools based on automated routine scripts are ill-equipped to handle the volume and complexity of these data, requiring piecemeal analysis ...

  10. Revolutionary Data Presentation and Manipulation (REVOLT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T001

    Successful missile defense is critical to the security of the United States, its deployed forces, and its allies. Across numerous simulations, tests, and operational scenarios, the Government amasses large quantities of complex high-dimensional data describing missile defense outcomes. While Missile Defense Agency (MDA) analysts need to use this data to better understand and improve missile defens ...
