  1. Team Oriented Resource Management and Control (TORMAC)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: HR001121S000725

    This proposal is for a Team Oriented Resource Management and Control (TORMAC) solution to the problem of distributed decision-making for resource constrained platforms in complex environments. As autonomous unmanned vehicles (UXV), sensor and manned vehicle capabilities have proliferated, it is more important to find ways of coordinating these assets towards common objectives in an evolving, commu ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Effects of RF and Geomagnetic Fields on pilot performance, implicit behavior, sensory perception, and cognition

    SBC: Applied Physics Systems, Inc.            Topic: HR001120S001918

    Spatial disorientation errors in pilots of both civilian and military persuasion have plagued aviation for over 100 years.  This persistence suggests that the disruption of a subconscious orientational system might be partially at fault, influencing pilot decisions that lead to these often-fatal errors.  Our collaborators at Caltech recently discovered that alpha waves in the human brain respond ...

  4. Cockpit Electromagnetic Radiation Testing And INterpretation (CERTAIN)

    SBC: TRIPLE RING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: HR001120S001918

    There is potential for intense, pulsed and non-uniform electromagnetic fields (EMFs) to exist within DoD tactical aircraft, and the potential for such EMFs to degrade pilot performance and lead to serious mishaps including loss of life. Proposers will begin with a methodical study of the actual EMF environments in the cockpits of representative aircraft to establish nature of any extreme fields pr ...

  5. Trust Worthy Information Storage Technology Enhanced Devices (TWISTED)

    SBC: Msb Associates            Topic: HR001120S001920

    Memory sticks are a convenient mechanism for portable data storage and transfer. Unfortunately, the embedded microcontroller required to present raw flash as a USB peripheral exposes an attack surface that can enable privilege escalation on a host computer even in the presence of tamper-resistant device designs, data encryption, and host protections such as anti-virus software. We propose Twi ...

  6. Thermal Emission Control using Photonic Crystals

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HR001120S001925

    To achieve the requisite fast, dynamic thermal switching times, we postulate the use of a Photonic Crystal (PC) filament operating at l=1-2mm. Our electrically biased PC design will be super thin to allow for fast on-off intensity-switching. It will have a small thermal mass and exhibit laser-like input-output characteristics, i.e. “Planck laser”. We will provide a theoretical framework for ou ...

  7. R&D Automated Profit Incentive Determination “RAPID”

    SBC: SpendLogic, LP            Topic: HR001121S000706

    Page 2 of 2 The Department of Defense (DoD) must negotiate profit that is fair and reasonable to both the Buyer and the Seller. The DoD relies on profit to both attract the investment capital of innovative contractors and provide an incentive to perform efficiently. It relies heavily on the concept that the relationship between profit and risk should be proportional. At first, this seems to be a t ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. IA 2: Intent-Capturing Annotations for Isolation and Assurance

    SBC: Immunant, Inc.            Topic: HR001120S0019001

    Software and hardware flaws can be exploited to make programs perform unintended computations or leak sensitive data. We propose to counter these threats by isolating libraries and other program units inside a single process. The developer will insert source-level annotations that i) map code and data units to compartments and ii) capture how each compartment is intended to interact with others, i ...
