  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 ...

  3. Low Toxicity, Non-cryogenic Liquid Propellant Upper Stage Engine

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: MDA18T005

    Our vision for the next generation missile and space propulsion engine is a flexible and non-toxic propulsion technology using HAN/kerosene, offering variable thrust with a high degree of mission tailoring. Additionally, high bulk density of HAN/kerosene bi-propellant improves stage mass fraction and delivers performance metrics that exceed current toxic storable propellants. We propose an innovat ...

  4. Equester Green Propellant Turbopump

    SBC: Exquadrum, Inc.            Topic: MDA18T005

    During the proposed Phase 1 research and development effort, the project team will design an innovative turbopump system for a target vehicle upper stage using “Green" liquid propellants that meet Missile Defense Agency's requirements. The use of a turbopump will result in an upper stage that has a greater than 50% improvement in delta velocity in comparison to a previously designed, pressure fe ...

  7. Novel Structure-Preserving Algorithms for Accurate Rocket Trajectory Propagation

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA17T002

    The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...

  9. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  10. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...
