  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 ...

  4. Machine-Learning Based Sensing and Waveform Adaptation for SDRs Operating in Congested and Contested Environment

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: A19CT005

    Unprecedented growth in demand of wireless devices has caused overcrowding of the spectrum. Modern Software Defined Radios (SDRs) have to provide satisfactory services while transmitting/receiving in congested and contested environment. In order to do that, complex learning algorithms have to be paired with capable, flexible and wideband hardware.Space Micro and its partner research institution, t ...

  6. Laser Activated Plasma (LAPLAS) for Standoff Electronic Denial

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: A19CT007

    Robotic systems in general, and Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAVs) in particular, pose a threat for both military and civilians when in the wrong hands. The triad of Kinetic, High-Power Microwave and Laser weapon systems currently used or considered for Counter-UAV (C-UAV) operation though effective in disrupting their performance, might be hazardous when used in a populated area. In this Phase I prog ...

  7. Standoff Electronic Denial

    SBC: IONATRON INC            Topic: A19CT007

    A Directed Energy (DE) system able to remotely disrupt packaged electronics in a realistic target in less than a few milliseconds are of interest, especially if the solution may be scaled to neutralize targets more than 1 km away. The long dwell times as well as high electrical and cooling requirements associated with high power microwave and continuous wave (CW) laser systems restrict their deplo ...

  8. Freeform Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT001

    Traditional spherical optics implemented on a common optical axis are the foundation of today’s fielded gunsights for small arms fire control. SA Photonics has helped pioneer the application of precision injection molded freeform optical surfaces in head/helmet mounted display (HMD) systems for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and low light level sensor applications. SA Photonics tea ...

  10. Automating U-spline fluid-structure model development for mobility applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: A19BT006

    Dr. Thomas J.R. Hughes, senior advisor at Coreform, first introduced isogeometric analysis (IGA) in 2005. In the years since, it has been shown that smooth splines, the basic building blocks of IGA, allow for the use of relatively coarse meshes for accurate analysis in both finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Research results also show that IGA delivers improved a ...
