  1. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  4. Dynamic Vehicle Modeling Composed of Mechanical and Thermal Interaction with High-Resolution Synthetic Scenes

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: A16008

    Advances in physics-based, multi-spectral modeling and simulation have paved the way to provide an enhanced evaluation environment for current and future weapon systems. These advancements present an opportunity to develop an equally sophisticated ground vehicle model that can dynamically interact with the physics of the scene simulations.Signature Research, Inc. details a solution to develop a go ...

  5. Two-Speed Final Drive for Recovery Vehicle

    SBC: LOC PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: A16074

    The Army is looking for an innovative solution to address the towing capacity of the M88-A2 recovery vehicle. As vehicle weights increase, the towing capacity of the recovery vehicles must compensate for this increased load. Heavy tracked vehicles (70-80 ton) require high tractive effort to perform towing maneuvers and it is increasingly difficult to maintain this pulling force as well as achieve ...

  6. High Efficiency Multi-band Mid-Infrared Supercontinuum Fiber Laser for DIRCM

    SBC: OMNI SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: A09069

    Fixed and rotary winged aircraft require directed infrared counter-measures (DIRCM) systems to self-protect against heat seeking missiles, and the DIRCM multi-spectral light source is a key enabling technology and differentiator. Omni Sciences, Inc. (OSI), has developed a Mid-Infrared Super-Continuum Laser (MISCL) for DIRCM and other DoD applications that uses COTS components from the mature telec ...

  7. Anti-Fog Superhydrophobic Coating from Ultrastrong Nanocomposites

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: SB101010

    Superhydrophobic nanostructured coating will be developed from transparent ultrastrong materials. The coatings will be scalable, inexpensive, mechanically robust and thermally resilient. We will initially design such coatings using layered nanocomposites. Then it will be optimized for different surfaces. In the final stages of the project we will demonstrated scaled up version of the coatings lead ...

  8. System Design Optimization Model

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: A09192

    Traditional tradeoff methodologies have not permitted an easy, efficient and analytically-based means for trading between traditional survivability areas and other selected non-traditional survivability technology functional areas such as lethality, mobility, situational awareness, blast mitigation and fire suppression, all of which effect vehicle survivability. The significance of having an expli ...

  9. Aviator's Intelligent Assistant

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09124

    Army helicopter pilots are inundated with information in the cockpit, and more is coming. But simply providing more information is not always the answer. With new technology constantly pushing more information into the cockpit, there is an ever-increasing demand for smarter management of that information before it overwhelms the pilot. Most cockpit displays require a pilot to navigate a series of ...

  10. Metamaterial Antennas for Army Platforms

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A08067

    The objective of this SBIR project is to design compact wideband antennas for military vehicular platforms using metamaterial concepts. Specifically, we will use some of the metamaterial surface concepts that have been recently developed at the University of Michigan for antenna miniaturization, bandwidth enhancement and platform isolation. As part of the proposed Phase II effort, several UHF ante ...
