  1. C-SMILE (Cloud-based SOCOM Scalable Man-Machine Identity Learning Environment)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM16003

    The primary goal of a terrorist-organized data leak is to share private data with the rest of the world. Once acquired, U.S. Government personnel information can provide actionable information to use against the U.S. in the form of direct strike, blackmail, fraud, or impersonation. For special operators at numerous government organizations, this leakage or discovery of personal information can hav ...

  2. Managing Operations Security Tool (MOST)

    SBC: IST Research Corp.            Topic: SOCOM16003

    There is ample evidence and channels for US military operational information to be released via social media and the interment; possibly compromising OPSEC. Tools to accurately identify what publicly available information is out there are lacking and even if these data were readily available, the volume is quite significant and tools to integrate and analyze are likewise lacking. Moving from overs ...

  3. Real-time Assessment of Antimicrobial Concentrations for Personalized Treatment of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SB162001

    There is an urgent need to optimize antimicrobial dosing in order to address the prevalence of drug-resistant pathogens and the increase of minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of antimicrobials. Antimicrobials typically have a narrow window of effective concentration or therapeutic indices. If the drug is dosed above this concentration window it becomes toxic. Conversely, if under-dosed, trea ...

  4. Platform for Research Optimization and Creation of Experiments in Social Science (PROCESS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162003

    To better understand the world around them, social scientists develop models and theories of human behavior and interaction that they empirically test through a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques. However, current methodological paradigms often introduce biases through sampling constraints and data analysis techniques that make the results of social science experiments hard to repl ...

  5. Methods for Signal Isolation Across Heterogeneous Document Sets

    SBC: Thresher Ventures, LLC            Topic: SB162003

    Text is a treasure trove of data for social, behavioral and economic researchers, for which the rapidly developing field of automated text analysis has produced numerous methods. However, the machine classifiers on which many of these methods depend degrade as data becomes noisier. Ad hoc approaches to reducing noisesuch as using analyst-generated keywords to collect documentscan introduce bias. D ...

  6. Secure Information Exchange Platform

    SBC: SynaptiCAD Sales, Inc.            Topic: SB162004

    SynaptiCAD proposes to create a secure information exchange platform based on an existing, proven blockchain codebase (bitshares). The blockchain, which already provides a completely secure method for exchanging cryptocurrencies, can be extended to any transactional or communications system. A feature in the current bitshares toolkit to write memos, to go with transactions, will be enhanced to pro ...

  7. Secure Messaging Platform (SMP) as a Service (SMPaaS)

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: SB162004

    We propose a system called Secure Messaging Platform as a Service (SMPaaS).It provides a distributed network capability for secure real-time communication and collaboration of documents. SMPaaS will track meta-data of message communication operations, showing who modified what in an unmodifiable blockchain ledger. Traditional methods are centralized, unencrypted, expensive, inefficient, brittle an ...

  8. Autonomous System Control via Social Insect Models (ASC-SIM)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: SB162005

    Boston Fusion Corp. and Arizona State University propose to research and develop Autonomous System Control via Social Insect Models (ASC-SIM). We will develop a unified approach that combines: swarm-based scenarios of national interest; predictive social insect models including an underlying ontology that incorporates insect, model, and scenario features; graph-based search to select the most app ...

  9. Software Workspace for creating and testing Algorithmic Responses based on Meta-heuristic Experimental Designs (SWARMED)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162005

    Military operators are challenged by managing, gaining information from, and reacting to autonomous systems. Additional challenges arise from providing autonomous systems with the means to maintain resilience, be adaptable, and help military operators understand the control strategies employed by autonomous systems, whether those strategies are intentional or arise from emergent interactions. Thes ...

  10. Biologically-Inspired Swarm pErception and Control Technology (BISECT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB162005

    SSCI, University of Pennsylvania (UPenn, Dr. Amanda Prorok and Prof. V. J. Kumar) and Arizona State University (ASU, Prof. Stephen Pratt) propose to carry out initial analysis, development, implementation and testing of the Biologically-Inspired Swarm pErception and Control Technology (BISECT). The proposed BISECT capability addresses the problem of synthesizing optimal control policies for hetero ...
