  1. Computer-Aided Design Tools for Three-Dimensional Circuit Integration

    SBC: R3LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    R3 Logic proposes to develop an openly accessible Design Environment that will incorporate CAD tools needed for the analysis and design of 3D integrated circuits, including schematic capture, VHDL interfaces, 3D physical layout, verification, 3D parasiticextraction, interactive coupled electro-thermal simulations, and thermally-aware place and route methods. We will achieve this goal, first by bui ...

  2. Regionally Adaptive Precision Tracking

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    While there have been a number of recent advances in track precision and maintenance via the AMSTE program, long-term track maintenance remains an elusive goal. Track breaks are primarily the result of miss-detections due to micro-obscuration from foliageand buildings and or due to the vehicle dropping below Minimum Detectable Velocity (MDV) because of parking or stopping at intersections and yiel ...

  3. Automatic Target Recognition from Motion Video

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a new automatic target recognition (ATR) system that operates on video data, exploiting the inherent redundancy and spatio-temporal coherence of motion imagery to create three-dimensional target signatures. Unlike previous approaches that useshape alone, our method will additionally model and predict object surface appearance properties, in the form of bi-directional reflectance distrib ...

  4. INSIGHT: Interpreting Network Structures to Obtain Intelligence on Groups of Hidden Terrorists

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Detecting and disrupting a terrorist network requires the ability to: link disparate (noisy, deceptive) data and recognize patterns in the underlying networks, estimate where further intelligence would be useful, and predict the network's response topossible attacks.We propose to combine state-of-the-art social network analysis (meta-networks) and statistical inferencing (probabilistic relational ...

  5. Distributed Tracking with Networked, Dynamically Relocatable Sensors

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Organic Air Vehicles have the potential to dramatically improve knowledge of the battlespace by providing persistent networked coverage which can dynamically adjust to changing conditions. These systems require novel algorithms which can address theproblems of positioning, sensor resource allocation, and tracking. Here we propose to define an architecture and create core algorithms which address ...

  6. Complex Organizational Reasoning System (CORES)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In Operations Other Than War (OOTW), there is a need for intelligence analysts and military planners to anticipate the actions and responses of complex networked organizations in nontraditional environments, particularly when confronting hostile networks.The Complex Organizational Reasoning System (CORES) encapsulates a multi-agent network simulation model that uses organizational dynamics to gene ...

  7. Modeling Asymmetric Threats to Critical Infrastructure

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To predict likely terrorist actions and terrorist targets in the U.S. we need (1) models of how terrorist organizations evolve and learn (2) identification of cultural variables likely to shape the evolution of terrorist organizations within the U.S. and(3) methods for including these cultural context variables in organizational learning models. Our team includes three essential types of expertise ...

  8. NBC Personnel Cooling Suit

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a small portable personal cooling system that may be used by Special Operations Forces with or without NBC protective clothing. The use of NBC garments in warm environments can severely inhibit the operators fromperforming at thier top level both physically and mentally, which considering their mission, would drastically reduce survivability. The proposed soluti ...

  9. Rapid Design & Development of Behaviors for Autonomous Vehicles

    SBC: BLUEFIN ROBOTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Bluefin Robotics proposes (in Phase I) to create a methodology for developing the Bluefin Agent Behavior Language (BABL) and associated tools. BABL will enable the rapid design and development of behaviors for autonomous vehicles. Key features of BABL arethat it:1) Makes a minimal set of assumptions about the capabilities and assumptions of the target UVs.2) Maintains generality without losing the ...

  10. Sign Understanding in Support of Autonomous Navigation (SUSAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Mobile robots currently cannot detect and read arbitrary signs. Existing work on road sign recognition is template based, limiting the detectable signs to a specific set. This is a major hindrance to mobile robot usability, since they cannot be taskedusing directions that are intuitive to humans. It also limits their ability to report their position relative to intuitive landmarks.We propose to de ...
