  1. Universal Multivariate Information Measures for Multisensor Inference (UMIMMI)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: AF16AT29

    The team of Boston Fusion Corp., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Syracuse University proposes Phase II of UMIMMI: Universal Multivariate Information Measures for Multisensor Inference, a research program that studies multivariate information measures and uses these to construct optimal, universal algorithms and to lay a framework for general multivariate reasoning. We can then appl ...

  2. Computational Methods for Dynamic Scene Reconstruction


    Mobile video sensors have become cheap and easy to integrate into cell-phones, UAVs, body cameras, and security cameras. The possibility of dense networks of video sensors enables a wide range of security-related uses for ONR and other government agencies including seaport monitoring, battlefield situational awareness, and forensic crime-scene analysis. The density and overlap of sensors creates t ...

  4. Development of a Safer Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Battery for Naval Aircraft Applications Through Thermal Management Design

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N14AT006

    Rechargeable lithium ion battery systems can provide power throughout the aircraft, including engine or Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) starting, avionics, emergency, and other systems. Because of their high specific energy/power and potential thermal instability, they can present hazards if improperly designed, tested, handled, or stored. To address the thermal safety issue of Li-ion batteries, EIC La ...

  5. Novel Polymer-Derived Carbide and Boride Refractory Ceramics

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT26

    Triton is proposing to continue developing a family of preceramic materials and formulations that will produce group 4 (Zr and Hf) carbides and carbide/boride mixtures in good yield. The target yield for the program is 60 vol%. These materials will be used in a polymer infiltration and pyrolysis process to produce ultrahigh temperature ceramic matrices in ceramic matrix composites useful for hyper ...

  6. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...

  7. Group Dynamics Modeling, Forecasting, and Validation


    Building on our prior research in group discovery and tracking, we propose to develop new algorithms for predicting future behaviors of social media groups. These algorithms will be based on emerging social interaction theories and new computational models of group dynamics at multiple levels, from individual roles and interactions to aggregate trends within and across groups. Our approach takes a ...

  10. Composable Hybrid Approach to Recognizing bots and their Influence in Social Media Analysis (CHARISMA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N15AT020

    Social media is transforming the way people around the world share messages, receive information, and come together to act. Unlike most traditional media, social medias technical foundation enables messages to spread quickly and widely. This technology can also be used to disguise the true source of messages and produce automated messages that may have influential and manipulative effects on popul ...
