  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. High Strain-Rate Characterization Methods for Carbon-Carbon Composites at Elevated Temperatures

    SBC: MATERIALS RESEARCH & DESIGN INC            Topic: MDA19T002

    Hypersonic Glide Vehicles (HGV) fly low and flat trajectories in an effort to evade current missile defense systems. Traditional interceptors are designed to have a 3-to-1 overmatch in regards to maneuverability, which may prove to be an unattainable design goal. Consequently, future interceptors will be armed with blast fragmentation warheads to increase probability of defeat. The effectiveness o ...

  5. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics- MSC P4537

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: MDA19T002

    Next generation high-speed missile defense systems require advanced thermal protection systems (TPS) to meet performance objectives. The development of these advanced systems requires the continued research of high-temperature materials, i.e., silicon carbide composites, carbon-carbon composites, aluminum, and titanium. The aerodynamic heating, e.g., 2,000° F, produced by extreme velocities, i.e. ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Secure Virtual Environment for Cyber Resiliency Validation

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DEFENSE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA19T004

    Department of Defense (DoD) cybersecurity test and evaluation (T&E) uses various cyber event environments throughout the development of a combat system to support fielding more secure, resilient, and cost-effective systems. Cyber ranges deploy cyber-attacks and achieve high-fidelity feedback on vulnerabilities present in the system without putting operational systems at risk; they support more rig ...

  8. Monte Carlo Modeling of Weapon System Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures: A Framework for Assessing the Impacts of Variability in Human Performance

    SBC: Energy And Security Group, LLC            Topic: MDA19T008

    Energy and Security Group (ESG) and our partner Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) will design a modeling and simulation (M&S) framework that integrates human performance modeling with high-fidelity systems modeling to explore the impacts of human operator variability in execution of tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP). This framework, TTPSim, can be used to develop and run simultaneous, eff ...

  9. 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 ...
