  1. Deep Inference and Fusion Framework Utilizing Supporting Evidence (DIFFUSE)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: MDA15T001

    Combining information from disparate sensors can lead to better situational awareness and improved inference performance; unfortunately, traditional multi-sensor fusion cannot capture complex dependencies among different objects in a scene, nor can it exploit context to further boost performance. Integrating context information within a fusion architecture to reason cohesively about scenes of inte ...

  2. Sufficient Statistics for System of Systems Control (S4C)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA15T002

    There is an urgent need to develop and demonstrate innovative control, design and analysis techniques to characterize the stability and performance of a system of systems (SoS) as a function of sub-system dynamics, network structure and control/decision processes. This is particularly true in the missile defense scenario, which involves a coordinated defense against threats. However, there is no e ...

  3. Mechanistic Model Development for Gold Contaminated Solder Joint Reliability

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: MDA15T005

    DfR Solutions and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have formed a team of experts in solder joint reliability and gold embrittlement to perform a series of experiments that will provide the data necessary to create mechanistic reliability models. Critical to any application of these models and of interpreting experimental results is the ability to determine solder joint gold contaminatio ...

  4. CCA-SAFE: A Model-Assisted NDE Tool for Failure Analysis of Gold Contaminated Solder Joints

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA15T005

    Gold contamination in Circuit Card Assembly (CCA) solder joints leads to brittle intermetallic compounds (IMCs), which is one of the major factors in solder joint failure. The conventional rule of thumb considers 3 wt% of gold (Au) as a safety threshold, which is not always reliable due to varieties of package platforms, solder types, reflux settings, operational and environmental conditions, etc. ...

  5. Gold-Contaminated Solder-Joint Characterization for Quantifying Risk Associated with Gold Embrittlement

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T005

    Circuit card assembly (CCA) reliability is dependent on solder joints, which join components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Board users strive to mitigate risks associated with gold-embrittled solder joints. Enig Associates, Inc. (ENIG), in collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories, proposes to develop a risk-forecasting tool for quantifying the risks associated with gold-embrittled sold ...

  6. Real-Time Health Management Portable Sensor for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a portable, non-invasive, real-time sensor to assess the chemical and physical health of solid rocket motors as a function of age without affecting the motors integrity nor having direct contact with the propellant. In Phase II, a sensor to monitor specific gas species that are markers of the chemical and mechanical aging pr ...

  7. Nanostructured conductive transparent coatings

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A15AT016

    Triton Systems, Inc. and its academic partner are proposing to fabricate an innovative highly conductive and transmissive thin layer to replace ITO on large area, lightweight solar cells. Part of the proposed approach will be to texture the surface of the coating to improve light transmission into the solar cell. Triton will work with a manufacturer of flexible solar panels for the Army, who wil ...

  8. Conductive Transmissive Coating for Enhanced-Absorption Thin Film Solar Cells

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A15AT016

    Thin-film, lightweight, large-area flexible inorganic solar cells have shown promise to meet the militarys remote power needs on the battlefield. However, thin film solar cells normally have inferior conversion efficiencies due to limited absorption of sunlight by the thin active layer. Various approaches have been investigated to improve conversion efficiencies of thin film solar cells. Among the ...

  9. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A16AT004

    White River Technologies, Inc. (WRT) and University of Vermont (UVM) present this proposal, "Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines". Among the primary gaps in our current landmine detection technology base is the ability to detect a wide range of buried explosive hazards including emerging low-metal mines and improvised explosive devices ...

  10. Novel OSINT Platform for Enhanced OSINT Collection

    SBC: ZUESS, INC.            Topic: A16AT006

    The meteoric rise of personally identifying information (PII) created and shared online is unprecedented. The sheer volume of open source intelligence available on sites such Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, message forums, Instagram, etc. makes the task of collecting and organizing OSINT increasingly laborious for analysts. Zeuss has already built and tested an operational product that addresses this ...
