  1. PARTEL: Periscope video Analysis using Reinforcement and TransfEr Learning

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N20AT007

    We propose a suite of video processing algorithms utilizing the machine learning (ML) techniques of artificial intelligence (AI) reinforcement learning, deep learning, and transfer learning to process submarine imagery obtained by means of periscope cameras. Machine learning (ML) can help in addressing the challenge of human failure of assessing the data of periscope imagery. Though pre-tuned blac ...

  2. Air-Sea Thermal Energy Harvesting on an Arctic Buoy

    SBC: SEATREC, INC.            Topic: N20AT023

    Seatrec will collaborate with a team from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to demonstrate the technical feasibility and commercial applicability of a novel energy harvesting system that converts thermal energy from high-latitude air-sea temperature differences into electricity.  This capability will extend the endurance and capability of observing system elements, reduce battery waste, a ...

  3. Secure Environment for Cyber Resiliency Evaluation of Missile Defense Systems (SEC-MDS)

    SBC: Scalable Network Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T004

    Current methods of validating the cyber resiliency of missile defense systems require testing of actual systems, which removes them from operation and subjects them to potentially damaging effects. Cyber ranges can be used as an alternative, but they are limited in scale, costly, time-consuming to configure and have limited capability to model wireless tactical networks and their inherent vulnerab ...

  4. Frequency and Phase Locking of Magnetrons Using Varactor Diodes

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N20AT015

    Magnetrons are compact, inexpensive, and highly efficient sources of RF power used in many industrial and commercial applications. For most of these applications, the requirement is for RF power without regard to precise frequency or phase control, and noise riding on the RF signal is not important. For many accelerator, defense, and communications applications, however, these characteristics prev ...

  5. High Performance, Non-flammable Lithium Battery

    SBC: American Lithium Energy Corp.            Topic: A19BT016

    The ALE-PNNL Team is developing a nonflammable high capacity and high power 18650 cell using nonflammable electrolyte for military electric vehicle and energy storage applications. The 18650 cells will be nonflammable even under extreme temperature conditions and after metal penetration, even including bullet penetration.

  6. 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 ...

  7. IA 2: Intent-Capturing Annotations for Isolation and Assurance

    SBC: Immunant, Inc.            Topic: HR001120S0019001

    Software and hardware flaws can be exploited to make programs perform unintended computations or leak sensitive data. We propose to counter these threats by isolating libraries and other program units inside a single process. The developer will insert source-level annotations that i) map code and data units to compartments and ii) capture how each compartment is intended to interact with others, i ...

  8. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA19T002

    The objective of this project is to develop a capability to model fracture of materials used in hypersonic vehicles that results from hypervelocity impact while exposed to extreme temperatures. Symplectic Engineering’s approach addresses this challenge at two levels. At the computational level, a Relaxed Extended Finite Element approach is pursued to represent (possibly intersecting) fractures l ...

  9. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T002

    This STTR research study aims to enhance and apply thermo-mechanically coupled computational models for high-temperature fracture. This topic is particularly challenging in that hypersonic flight in the atmosphere generates extreme conditions over a vehicle that can affect the strength and performance the vehicle materials, both in-flight conditions as well as for cases where the vehicle encounter ...

  10. High-Performance Monte Carlo Modeling System for Real-time Fire Control Schedulers

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA19T009

    The proposed work will develop a massively parallelized architecture for Monte Carlo simulation of real-time fire control schedulers. The parallelized architecture will utilize the recent developments in multiprocessing/multithreading technology based on graphical processing units. The system will be designed to perform in real-time assuming non-collocated sensors observing the threats and then co ...
