  1. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    During altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive and physical capacity degrades, compromising individual and team performance. Cognitive degradation is linked to falling brain energy levels, increased reliance on anaerobic energy production and lactate accumulation. Ketones are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies demonstrated that ...

  2. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181006

    Toyon proposes to research and develop algorithms for generalized salient change detection, and to incorporate these algorithms into software tools implemented on the cloud. Our approach leverages the two most promising methods from Phase I, both based on supervised learning. The first method is the entropy-based feature vector and corresponding neural network, which we will apply at a coarse sear ...

  3. Virtualized Trusted Internet Connection (vTIC)

    SBC: Metronome Software, LLC            Topic: 19OATS003

    Metronome Software proposes the research and development of a VIRTICONN, a zero-trust system for Virtualized Trusted Internet Connections (vTIC). The effort aims to overcome the limitations of traditional network security to provide authenticated users access to private resources, typically via a VPN or TIC. This older approach increases the attack surface of an internal system as each user is rep ...

  4. 81mm Mortar Guidance Package

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM182001

    OKSI will design and build a Precision Guidance Seeker (PGS) for the 81 mm munition. We will enhance and port our target acquisition and tracking algorithms to a real-time processor onboard the PGS, which will receive target-scene imagery prior to launch or while in flight and will deploy post apogee. OKSI will test the algorithms extensively with a wide range of military-relevant real-world data ...

  5. Decision Support Toolkits for Sytem of Systems Level Risk Modeling

    SBC: MICHIGAN ENGINEERING SERVICES LLC            Topic: 19OATS002

    DHS is preserving the safety and the security of America by preventing, foiling, and defeating attacks from a variety of adversaries. The increasing threats (both in terms of numbers and in terms of abilities) must be addressed successfully while facing an austere budget environment. In order to be able to "do more with less" having a capability for optimizing the resources and the assets which ar ...

  6. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA172002

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop algorithms that improve the precision and recall of neural networks for low-shot object classification and detection. Our approach is based upon developing a descriptive multi-domain feature representation of the low-shot target as well as the surrounding context. A multi-branch neural network merges the various domains of information to perform accur ...

  7. Advanced Image Segmentation for Radar Imagery

    SBC: ELECTROMAGNETIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NGA172004

    Implement methods to improve our Phase I architecture for complex SAR imagery collected from different systems and with different collection parameters. Implement techniques to boost performance across all ground features of interest. Reduce the amount of human intervention needed for training our SAR image segmentation architecture.  SAR segmentation can be applied to a number of areas: Intellig ...

  8. Miniature Intelligent Spectral Analyzer

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0181003

    Addressing the DHS need to rapidly detect radio interference of critical radio frequency (RF) communications channels utilized by first responders, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance, in Phase II, the development of the Miniature Intelligent Spectral Analyzer (MISCAN) system proven feasible in Phase I. MISCAN is based on a combination of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electroni ...

  9. Bilayer Nanofibers as Wearable Sensors for Detecting Fentanyl Compounds

    SBC: Vaporsens Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old, with fentanyl claiming more lives than any other drug. Alarmingly, the problem is increasing, with fentanyl overdoses claiming nearly twice as many lives in 2016 compared to 2015. In addition to users, first responders are at risk for exposure to fentanyl as they perform their duties. Fentanyl is extremely dangerous ...

  10. Remote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0181002

    To address the DHS need for a cell phone location finder for maritime and remote search and rescue (SAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes, in Phase II, to advance the development of the REmote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue (REPLIER), proven feasible in Phase I. REPLIER is based on a modification of open-source, full stack LTE software, allowing it to establish a wireless c ...
