  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: Flow Pharma, Inc.            Topic: CBD18A002

    Through this STTR contract, we propose to evaluate the efficacy of our vaccine, FlowVax Marburg, in nonhuman primates (NHPs). This will be achieved through four Tasks. In Task 1, we will manufacture the vaccine in a quantity sufficient for the animal studies. In Task 2, we will perform MHC genotyping on a representative population of NHPs and, based on results, select a set of MHC-matched NHPs for ...

  4. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terrible morbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditional vaccines have contributed greatly to public health, they have some limitations especially in the context of operati ...

  5. Freeform Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT001

    Traditional spherical optics implemented on a common optical axis are the foundation of today’s fielded gunsights for small arms fire control. SA Photonics has helped pioneer the application of precision injection molded freeform optical surfaces in head/helmet mounted display (HMD) systems for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and low light level sensor applications. SA Photonics tea ...

  6. Automating U-spline fluid-structure model development for mobility applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: A19BT006

    Dr. Thomas J.R. Hughes, senior advisor at Coreform, first introduced isogeometric analysis (IGA) in 2005. In the years since, it has been shown that smooth splines, the basic building blocks of IGA, allow for the use of relatively coarse meshes for accurate analysis in both finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Research results also show that IGA delivers improved a ...

  7. Exploiting Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms for Extreme Performance

    SBC: Fit Genetics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT008

    Advances in DNA sequencing technology have generated a rapid expansion of human genome information and the revelation of extraordinary individual-level genetic variation. Individual genome sequencing will soon be routine and cost-effective. To exploit this resource to the benefit of warfighters, we propose an approach for identifying and characterizing genetic variants that compromise metabolic ef ...

  8. MELD Mobile Metal Manufacturing Technologies For Repair And Retrofit of Infrastructure Systems

    SBC: MELD Manufacturing Corporation            Topic: A19BT012

    America’s infrastructure is aging, and in countless instances there is a critical need to address the degradation of structural components before disaster strikes. Two main infrastructure components are bridges and railways. MELD can fabricate or repair unweldable metals, yields wrought properties, is portable, and has significantly lower operating costs than other processes. MELD, formerly know ...

  9. Passive, Non-powered Re-chargeable Heat Storage Systems for Cold Climate Operations

    SBC: 2W ITECH LLC            Topic: A19BT014

    Next-level improvements in thermal extremity protection for the current Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) are needed for soldiers in order to improve mobility and achieve peak performance in bitterly cold Arctic climes. In this STTR program, 2W iTech LLC proposes to develop phase change material (PCM) based thermal regulating films, in collaboration with the Multiscale Thermal Science ...

  10. High Purity H2 from Sunlight via a Unique Combination of Novel Photodiodes and Membranes

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: A19BT015

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) together with University of Michigan (UMich) proposes a system to use solar energy to convert water to ultra-high purity compressed hydrogen suitable for PEM fuel cells. We will combine UMich’s high efficiency photocatalytic water splitting approach with PCI’s integrated hydrogen separator/compressor. The proposed effort will confirm the avoidance of external e ...
