  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. 3D-Printed Lightweight Optics for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: Optimax Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T009

    It is proposed that using additive manufacturing to fabricate a lightweight optic would result in a weight reduction of the optical system, since 3D-printing provides superior flexibility in the geometric design of the lightweight optic. In addition, the conventional approach to lightweight an optic requires machining of mechanically-hard optical substrates such as SiC, which is time-intensive an ...

  3. 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 ...
