  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. Advanced Data Association Algorithms to Address Emerging Threats

    SBC: Archarithms, Inc            Topic: MDA19T001

    The proposed approach provides innovative sensor data association algorithms capable of performing correct data association in multi-target tracking environments with one or more sensors. Current air and missile threats have the ability to fly non-ballistic, highly maneuvering hypersonic trajectories, and the ability to maintain closely spaced trajectories. Improved detection/track association is ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Question Answering for Data Analytics

    SBC: Archarithms, Inc            Topic: MDA19T003

    This topic seeks an innovative NL solution for answering questions that data analysts ask when analyzing data sets to increase efficiency and consistency. The government is working on an all-digital missile defense simulation architecture that will deliver massive amounts of simulation data. Data analysts will soon be inundated with more data than they can possibly analyze manually. A critical par ...

  6. Secure Virtual Environment for Cyber Resiliency Validation

    SBC: Gray Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T004

    The most direct way to meet the technical objectives for the Secure Virtual Environment (SVE) for Cyber Resiliency Validation would be to replicate the missile defense system’s tactical hardware, software, and network. However, this is cost prohibitive due to the amount of hardware procurement required for the Cyber test environment. Luckily, with the exception of supply chain threats, firmware, ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Dynamic Emulated System In Loop

    SBC: Verisi Corporation            Topic: MDA19T006

    The Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is aptly described as a system of systems. Each subsystem within the BMDS is comprised of many custom-designed firmware and software elements. The designs can only be integrated together upon receipt of physical hardware (Circuit Card Assemblies). This delay introduces significant risk to the developer and procurer since system-level design issues may no ...

  9. 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 ...
