  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Exploiting Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms for Extreme Performance

    SBC: Fit Genetics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT008

    Advances in DNA sequencing technology have generated a rapid expansion of human genome information and the revelation of extraordinary individual-level genetic variation. Individual genome sequencing will soon be routine and cost-effective. To exploit this resource to the benefit of warfighters, we propose an approach for identifying and characterizing genetic variants that compromise metabolic ef ...

  7. Microfluidic Platform for Detection and Quantification of DNA Methylation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A19BT013

    Epigenetic changes in DNA methylation pattern can result due to aging, diseases, or environmental changes and have been identified as biomarkers for several neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). As a result, DNA methylation signatures are being explored to assist with disease diagnosis, monitoring disease p ...

  9. High Purity H2 from Sunlight via a Unique Combination of Novel Photodiodes and Membranes

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: A19BT015

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) together with University of Michigan (UMich) proposes a system to use solar energy to convert water to ultra-high purity compressed hydrogen suitable for PEM fuel cells. We will combine UMich’s high efficiency photocatalytic water splitting approach with PCI’s integrated hydrogen separator/compressor. The proposed effort will confirm the avoidance of external e ...
