  3. Neural Network Based Pedestrian Dead Reckoning Navigation

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: A20BT027

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a prototype system for pedestrian dead reckoning navigation system. The proposed system is based on a novel deep neural network and does not require any pre-defined dynamic models. Hence, this system is significantly more robust to nonlinearities in the dynamic models than the traditional Kalman filter variants. The system is capable of handling uncertain and ...

  7. Advanced Monolithic 3D ion trap for Quantum Sensing and Information Processing

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: A20BT009

    We are proposing to design and fabricate an advanced monolithic 3D blade trap, which will be much more powerful and more stable than typical blade traps. Our design will incorporate features that will radically improve the trap operational capabilities over today’s standards. The trapping zone will be cut up into spatially distinctive sections, each of which will be optimized for performing a sp ...
