  1. Advanced Command and Control Architectures for Autonomous Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT030

    We propose to develop an innovative open architecture for the semi-autonomous command and control (C2) of teaming Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The proposed architecture, based upon Toyon’s Decentralized Asset Management system, supports both centralized and decentralized fusion and control autonomy solutions as well as hybrids approaches. Leveraging STANAG-4586, TCP/IP, UPD, Google™ protob ...

  2. Blending Classical Model-Based Target Classification and Identification Approaches with Data-Driven Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT033

    Toyon Research Corp. and the University of California propose to develop innovative algorithms to perform automatic target recognition (ATR), localization, and classification of maritime and land targets in EO/IR, LiDAR, and SAR imagery. The proposed algorithms are based on recent developments made at the University of California, which outline a strong mathematical framework for naturally blendin ...

  3. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Epirus, Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    Epirus presents a high powered microwave source that leverages ultra high power density solid state materials, called Leonidas, to meet all of the government’s objectives for the vehicle stop and vessel stop mission. The Leonidas unit has already achieved over 10 kW of effective radiated power (ERP) in laboratory tests using software definable solid state technology and we show how this scales t ...

  4. Enhanced Sensor Resource Management Utilizing Bayesian Inference

    SBC: DYNAMIC ANALYSIS & TESTING ASSOC.            Topic: N19AT002

    This proposal describes the use of machine learning, data mining and Bayesian inference algorithms for incorporation into a surveillance aircraft cognitive radar system. The need for incorporation of higher-order uncertainty distributions will also be assessed. This will result in enhanced sensor resource management capability for surveillance aircraft radar.

  5. Innovations in Designing Damage Tolerant Rotorcraft Components by Interface Tailoring

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: N19AT003

    The performance of a composite material is heavily influenced by the strength and toughness of the interlaminar region, which is the resin rich area between the plies of a fiber reinforced composite. The interlaminar region generally provides a direct path for crack propagation since no continuous reinforcement is present and is often the cause of failure in materials subjected to cyclic loading s ...

  6. Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integral Wavelength Beam Combining

    SBC: Mirios, Inc.            Topic: N19AT005

    Mirios Inc., in collaboration with UCSB and NRL, proposes to construct a high-brightness MWIR (~4.5-4.9 µm) light source, consisting of a single silicon chip with an array of Quantum Cascade Lasers which are fully-integrated with wavelength beam combiners.

  7. Homopolar AC Electric Machines for Naval Applications

    SBC: McCoy Consulting, LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The objective of this proposed effort is to increase the power and torque density of rotating electric machinery for Naval applications by up to 50%. This aggressive goal will be achieved by developing the novel homopolar AC machine (HAM) topology. This relatively un-studied topology relies on solenoidal field and armature coils, making manufacturing simpler than traditional machines. The HAM elim ...

  8. Comprehensive Surf Zone Modeling Tool

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT010

    Areté Associates, along with STTR partner Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), are proposing a comprehensive software capability for scene generation, object insertion, and performance modeling for passive and active EO COBRA sensors over the surf zone. The Surf Zone Modeling Tool (SZT) will incorporate several technologies, including: open-source and Areté-designed SZ ocean physics models, ...

  9. Unified Logging Architecture for Performance and Cybersecurity Monitoring

    SBC: Real-time Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N19AT012

    We propose to develop an open, highly scalable, extensible and secure unified logging architecture for performance and cybersecurity monitoring for Naval Control Systems (NCSs). The primary goal of this architecture is to realize a centralized logging infrastructure for monitoring the status of the entire NCS through collecting and aggregating logs from all subsystems. It will be built upon widely ...

  10. Predictive Graph Convolutional Networks

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N19AT017

    The US Navy’s mission to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces requires that decision makers have situational awareness of the capabilities, limitations, vulnerabilities/opportunities for adversarial and allied forces. An incomplete or inaccurate understanding of the current landscape and associated trends could lead to suboptimal mission readiness and outcomes. Analysts need tools ...
