  1. Identifying Meaningful Indicators of Collective Allostatic Load from Low-Cost, Wearable Sensors

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: SB172006

    A team’s collective allostatic load (CAL) is an unobservable theoretical construct, defined as the accumulated ‘wear and tear’ due to a team’s and its members’ repeated exposure to stress and strain. Stottler Henke, collaborating with Johns Hopkins University, proposes to explore the impact of CAL on individual and team performance over time. Affinity will advance the state-of-the-art in ...

  2. Spacecraft Identification Device

    SBC: Stellar Exploration, Inc.            Topic: SB171015

    This SBIR Phase II project completes the development and validation of a Gen 2 beacon, develops a ruggedized automated ground station and matures the central control center software environment. This project is divided into two phases: Phase II (base) completes development of the Gen 2 beacon and ground station, explores alternative power sources and culminates in a full space qualification test p ...

  3. Analyzing Human Dimensions of Software Engineering Processes

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: SB172007

    We propose to build CodeFault, a system for learning models of faulty software engineering based on patterns of human behavior. Flawed sofwtare is notably costly in terms of maintenance, but the costs are even higher when vulnerabilities introduced by such code are exploited by data breaches and ransomware. Our Phase II proposal builds on the design and feasibility investigation work we completed ...

  4. Nonlinear Plasmonic Structures and Devices (TALON)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: SB173002

    Ziva’s proposed Ultra nonlinear Plasmonics (TALON) technology addresses the critical DoD need to miniaturize on chip tunable and non-linear photonic components and devices. Ziva’s TALON based modulator exploits metamaterial based, composite materials for the waveguide section cladding layers and for the non-linear interaction sections. Using metamaterial based composite cladding layers for the ...

  5. Neurophysiological Assessment of Information Environment Through a Multi-Sensor Platform


    Rapid innovation in computer-mediated communication (e.g., social media) has created new channels for the spread of information. The proposed work will integrate Advanced Brain Monitoring’s neurological and physiological metrics (e.g., EEG, ECG, eye-tracking) with Cubic Intific Corporation’s Social Media Analytic Replication Toolkit (SMART) to yield a unified framework for analyzing informatio ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Dual-Mode, Extended Near-Infrared, Focal Plane Arrays Fabricated with CMOS Compatible GeSiSn Alloy Materials

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: SB162010

    Freedom Photonics and its team partners propose to develop in this program a novel Focal Plane Array (FPA) based on Germanium Silicon Tin (GeSiSn) on Silicon technology, capable of detecting wavelengths in the Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) range, up to 2200 nm. The FPAs will be developed in PIN photodiode and Avalanche Photodiode (APD) configuratios. These FPAs have the potential of providing low cost ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
