  1. Algorithm Performance Evaluation with Low Sample Size

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA20C001

    The team of Signature Research, Inc. and Michigan Technological University will develop and demonstrate methods and metrics to evaluate the performance of machine learning-based computer vision algorithms with low numbers of samples of labeled EO imagery. We will use the existing xView panchromatic dataset to demonstrate a proof-of-concept set of tools. If successful, in Phase II, we will extend t ...

  2. Entangled Photon Transceiver Leveraging Photonic Integrated Circuit Technology

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: T5

    The development and scaling of a nationwide fault-tolerant quantum network is of crucial interest to both the domestic and international scientific community. To achieve large scale quantum networks, quantum teleportation, the technique in which quantum information (a.k.a. qubits) is transferred between a sender and receiver, needs to be realized in a low-cost, size, weight and power (low-CSWAP) f ...

  5. An Efficient High-fidelity Design Tool for Advanced Tailorable Composites

    SBC: Analyswift, LLC            Topic: T12

    Tailorable composites have been proposed to further lightweighting space structures with improved performance. However, no existing design tools are capable of exploiting the full potential of these advanced material systems. The theory underpinning existing design tools was originally developed for traditional composites with straight fibers while tailorable composites usually have curved fibers ...

  6. Opto-Atomic Quantum Squeezer

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: T8

    Hedgefog Research Inc. (HFR) proposes to develop an Opto-Atomic Quantum Squeezer (OAQS) generating squeezed states of light resonant to a target atomic transition. Squeezed light offer exciting new opportunities in the field of quantum metrology, but available light sources delivering these exotic quantum properties are often bulky, complex, and highly susceptible to environmental perturbations an ...

  7. Low-Energy Additive Construction for the Moon and Mars

    SBC: MASTEN SPACE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T7

    Dust mitigation on the lunar surface is an early priority for permanent or long-term lunar and Martian outposts. The physical characteristics of regolith on the lunar surface, along with its lack of an atmosphere and low gravity make the fine particles a hazard for equipment and operations on the moon. Mars presents similar hazards with its low-pressure atmosphere and reduced gravity. Regolith eje ...

  8. Quantum Light Source for On-Site Detector Calibration

    SBC: QUBITEKK INC            Topic: T8

    Ongoing Ramp;D into quantum computing, quantum communications, and quantum networking solutions requires optical detectors that can detect a single photon with high efficiency. For many experiments, it is critical to know the precise detection efficiency of these detectors. Calibrating these detectors is currently anbsp;challenge as these detector are often large, complex, and fragile and must be ...
