  1. Algorithm Performance Evaluation with Low Sample Size

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA20C001

    The team of Signature Research, Inc. and Michigan Technological University will develop and demonstrate methods and metrics to evaluate the performance of machine learning-based computer vision algorithms with low numbers of samples of labeled EO imagery. We will use the existing xView panchromatic dataset to demonstrate a proof-of-concept set of tools. If successful, in Phase II, we will extend t ...

  2. Spray-based visual indicator of opioids for the rapid and effective decontamination of large areas

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Triton Systems, Inc. will collaborate with The University of Massachusetts Lowell to develop a spray-based technology for the rapid, visual identification of opioids, turning contaminated areas from nondescript white powders to a brightly colored spots for easy recognition with the naked eye. The technology leverages molecular recognition units that bind strongly and specifically to a variety of o ...

  3. Opioid Indicator Spray for Complex Surfaces

    SBC: Clear Scientific, LLC            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Opioids, especially synthetic opioids, are a constant threat to the safety of civilian first responders; there are now serious concerns about their use in modern chemical warfare. Fentanyl and its many analogues (carfentanil, remifentanil, lofentanil, mefentanil, sufentanil, etc.) are extremely hazardous—if ingested or inhaled, many synthetic opioids cause lethal intoxication with only a few gra ...

  4. Eye-readable Solution-based Dye Displacement Probe for Large-area Detection of Opioids

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Bowling Green State University, proposes to develop a field-rugged, eye-readable indicating spray solution that can immediately detect synthetic opioids over a large area of contamination (i.e., military vehicles, individual protective equipment, clandestine labs, etc.). The proposed chemosensor in a spray solution format will detect multipl ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terriblemorbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditionalvaccines have proven to be a huge contribution to public health, they do have some limitations especially in the cont ...

  8. Virus-Like Particle Based pan-Marburgvirus Vaccine

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: CBD18A002

    Marburg virus (MARV) is a filamentous enveloped non-segmented negative sense RNA virus. This viruse is considered to be extremelydangerous with case fatality rates as high as 88-90%. Extensive efforts have gone towards effective vaccines for MARV prevention, however,none have been successfully established as licensed vaccines. Glycoprotein (GP) is the only surface protein of MARV. There are substa ...
