  1. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  2. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    The drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan reminds us that lead remains dangerous and insidious toxicant that can impact public health for months or years before it is detected and remedied.Increasing awareness of lead contamination has motivated the general public to test their own drinking water, but few tools are availiable to help these "citizen scientist" do so effectively.Current lead scre ...

  3. GR-TDM: A Framework for Design Space Exploration of Hardware Trojan Detection and Mitigation Tradeoffs

    SBC: Graf Research Corporation            Topic: SB173004

    As integrated circuit dimensions shrink and U.S. fabrication facilities age, U.S. ASIC developers are increasingly turning to overseas foundries for the latest process nodes in device fabrication.This migration is especially impactful for DoD designers as critical military technology needs to be trusted and offshore fabrication has the potential to expose chips to malice during manufacture.Sensiti ...

  4. Distributed, Large Scale Spectrum Measurement and Analysis

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: SB162011

    Shared Spectrum Company (SSC), Intelligent Software Solutions (ISS), and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) propose to develop and demonstrate an innovative method for a large number (~50) of low altitude UAV to obtain information on spectrum use and activities. Our approach has multiple innovations:(1) ISSs Seer, a fuzzy multi-hypothesis abductive reasoning system that processes noi ...

  6. Assessing Deterrence in the Gray Zone


    The proposed project seeks to develop an end-to-end data driven system to estimate the effects of historical and forecast the effects of future deterrent courses of action (COAs) against Gray Zone challengers. US conventional military power regularly deters adversaries from employing large-scale conventional forces against US interests; however, this success often motivates adversaries to pursue G ...

  7. Advanced Technologies for Reducing Decompression Obligation and Risk

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB131004

    Despite over 100 years of research, decompression sickness (DCS) remains the mission-limiting factor in the design and execution of combat diving operations.Divers may spend over an hour decompressing after spending as little as ten minutes at the target depth.While decompressing, divers are limited in vertical mobility, making then susceptible to detection and threatening their survivability.This ...

  8. Cross-Domain Signal Extraction Using Sparse Network Sampling

    SBC: Ivysys Technologies, LLC            Topic: A11028

    This research project seeks to adapt signal processing algorithms developed for the detection and estimation of weak RF network signals to the application of detecting weak social media signals diffusing across multiple, heterogeneous social networking environments (SNEs). We propose to develop quantitative predictive models that capture the dynamics of information diffusion processes over multipl ...

  9. Detecting Systematic Intervention in Online Discourse in or to Gain Insight onto Government Priorities

    SBC: Thresher            Topic: SB171008

    As authoritarian leaders take action to control online content, they leave behind an outline of their priorities and prove a willingness to act. When collected and analyzed at scale, online intervention can be used to assess the concerns of the intervening government across several policy categories, including military affairs and foreign policy.In our Phase I equivalent research, we established a ...

  10. Pulse Radar for Inferring Intent from Social Media (PRIISM)

    SBC: IST Research Corp.            Topic: SB171009

    PRIISM (Pulse Radar to Infer Intent from Social Media) will advance IST Researchs Pulse Platform for online data monitoring and active audience engagement to build a tool that automatically detects intent to act to harm US overseas forces expressed through publicly available information (PAI). PRIISM will revolutionize the way intentions and threats are detected online by combining Pulses innovati ...
