  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Low Toxicity, Non-cryogenic Liquid Propellant Upper Stage Engine

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: MDA18T005

    Our vision for the next generation missile and space propulsion engine is a flexible and non-toxic propulsion technology using HAN/kerosene, offering variable thrust with a high degree of mission tailoring. Additionally, high bulk density of HAN/kerosene bi-propellant improves stage mass fraction and delivers performance metrics that exceed current toxic storable propellants. We propose an innovat ...

  8. Equester Green Propellant Turbopump

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T005

    During the proposed Phase 1 research and development effort, the project team will design an innovative turbopump system for a target vehicle upper stage using “Green" liquid propellants that meet Missile Defense Agency's requirements. The use of a turbopump will result in an upper stage that has a greater than 50% improvement in delta velocity in comparison to a previously designed, pressure fe ...

  10. Novel Structure-Preserving Algorithms for Accurate Rocket Trajectory Propagation

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA17T002

    The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...
