  1. 3D Model Construction from a Micro Air Vehicle

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    The innovative integration of two emerging technologies, computer vision systems and Un-manned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's), can dramatically improve the capabilities of the UAV for real-world urban missions. Computer vision is being developed for robotic planetary exploration. UAV's are being developed for low-altitude military reconnaissance and surveillance in urban settings. The application of c ...

  2. A High-Level Operator Abstraction for GPU Graph Analytics

    SBC: Royal Caliber            Topic: ST13B004

    We propose to build a framework around an operator formulation to enable rapid development of massively parallel solutions to large graph problems. Graph algorithms are expressed by a small number of operators that are applied to components of the graph.

  3. A Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)-Based Portable Power Source

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is on the demonstration of a portable, thermally self-sustaining, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)-based power module, delivering 25 W at ~70% efficiency, continuous power operating on liquid hydrocarbon fuels, with energy density > 1300 Wh/liter(>2000 Wh/kg. for a 72hr. operation), including fuel canister. SOFC stack, operating at 550oC, is based on novel, anode-supported fuel cells wit ...

  4. Adaptive Broadband Linearization for Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: PHASEBRIDGE, INC.            Topic: ST041003

    An investigation of a broadband analog optical modulator linearization scheme is proposed. The scheme is based on the combination of multiple semiconductor modulator devices, driven from a common electrical input. The linearization is accomplished in the optical domain, making the approach suitable for wideband microwave applications that have frustrated previous attempts at electrical pre-distort ...

  5. Adaptive Visualization of Social Networks (ADVIS)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: SB12A004

    This proposal is to develop a new system for Adaptive Visualization of Social Networks (ADVIS). Numerous social network visualization systems have been produced in recent years. But even in the few top systems cognitive science and design principles have been applied in an ad hoc and non-systemic manner. Accordingly, each visualization system is a one-of, which may be fine-tuned to a particular ...

  6. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...

  7. Analog Co-Processors for Complex System Simulation and Design

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: ST15C002

    It has long been known that analog computers can be faster and more power efficient than digital processors by many orders of magnitude. Until the 1970s analog computers were the dominant controllers in most industrial and military applications. Even today digital processors are still slower and more power consumptive than analog, but offer much more flexibility (programmability) and precision. ...

  8. An automated and programmable microfluidic platform for combinatorial gene assembly and biosynthesis applications

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: ST12B003

    HJ Science & Technology (HJS & T) and the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) propose to develop an automated, software-controlled, programmable, low-cost, and compact platform capable of running rapid and complex bioengineering processes and optimization of new biomanufacturing systems. Our approach combines the microfluidic automation technology of HJS & T with the novel synthetic biology technolo ...

  9. Applications of Computational Command Leadership AI Models (ACCLAIM)

    SBC: STOTTLER HENKE ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: ST092002

    A military without good leadership is a mob. Identification, preparation, guidance and mentoring of potential leaders are critical functions across all services. Leadership training and support can be substantially improved by refinement of theories and models on what constitutes good leadership, and what enables individual to be effective leaders. DoD needs better models of how leaders learn, ...

  10. Automated Assembly of Deformable Digital Composite Airframes

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: ST13A006

    Carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite materials are light and strong, however the development of composite aerostructures has been expensive and slow. Custom tooling is required for each part produced, significant capital investment is required to win
