  1. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  2. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with MGH Voice Center and Altec, Inc., application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience of our partner, MGH (including resea ...

  3. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    It is desirable to make focal plane arrays (or imaging arrays) with reduced pitch; doing so enables smaller, cheaper and lighter camera systems that provide the same image resolution. Currently, the lower limit on pitch is set by electron/hole diffusion and light diffraction that results in crosstalk between neighboring pixels. Since electron hole pairs generated outside the depletion layer can ...

  4. Visual Relative Navigation

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C006

    As unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) become more prevalent there is an increasing desire to automate UAS navigation and control. To enable future UASs to perform a wider variety of missions, they must be able to complete autonomous relative navigation to accomplish missions. Current technologies rely heavily on GPS measurements, which are undesirable since GPS signals may be unavailable in many DoD ...

  5. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA18A001

    The multidisciplinary area of GEOINT is changing and becoming more complex. A major driver of innovation in GEOINT collection and processing is artificial intelligence (AI). AI is being leveraged to help accomplish spatial analysis, change detection, and image or video triage tasks where filtering objects of interest from large volumes of data is critical. NGA is confronting the changing GEOINT l ...

  6. Pathogen Classification Tool (PACT)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST18C002

    Stottler Henke proposes PACT to address the threat posed by unknown/novel bacteria. Stottler Henke’s solution leverages AI/ML technologies to assess the pathogenic potential of unknown/novel bacteria for DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office. Threat assessment is inferred from phenotype as characterized by a series of assays developed by Harvard University as part of DARPA’s Friend or Foe p ...

  7. Mid-infrared Fiber Laser Based on Super-Continuum

    SBC: OMNI SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: ST051008

    Infrared counter-measures require a mid-infrared laser operating between 2-5 microns with time-averaged powers of 5W and more. Omni Sciences, Inc.'s (OSI's) Mid-Infra-Red FIber Laser (MIRFIL) will generate continuous light over the mid-IR, 2-5 microns, with time-averaged power scalable to more than 5W. The MIRFIL is a practical super-continuum (SC) source using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) la ...

  8. Expendable Local Area Sensors in a Tactically Interconnected Cluster (ELASTIC)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST051009

    Obtaining situational awareness in tactical operations often involves high risk to personnel and/or equipment. The ELASTIC concept is to overcome this problem through the use of very low-cost, yet sophisticated, rapidly-deployable imaging sensors. Features of our proposed concept include use of highly portable equipment and support of a range of operational scenarios. Both of these features are ma ...

  9. High Current Photodetector

    SBC: ARCHCOM TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: ST051007

    For many communication, applications the demand for more bandwidth is a never ending problem. Military system applications often can exceed commercial demands by an order of magnitude or more as SIGINT and IMINT data collection and transmission are keys to our National Security. Optical delivery of RF signals is an increasingly important topic for applications including RF antenna remoting, sign ...
