  1. A Hybrid Systems Approach to Intelligent Information Management in Human-Automation Interaction

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: OSD13HS5

    A formal approach to the management of information involved in human-automation interactions is proposed. The mathematical formalism is enabled by employing the notion of hybrid systems. The information management involves ensuring correct information flow and shared cognition between human operators and machines. It is envisioned that the proposed algorithms will formalize the analysis of human-a ...

  2. A System Using Knowledge of Narratives for Optimizing Workspaces to Enhance Reasoning (KNOWER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD12LD4

    The wealth of data provided by modern information fusion (IF) tools exceeds the ability of intelligence analysts to effectively process, exploit, and disseminate actionable intelligence. This issue arises because these IF tools define information value a

  3. Active Software Defense to Reduce Threat Capability Effectiveness

    SBC: Power Fingerprinting, Inc            Topic: OSD11IA6

    In order to better protect critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, perimeter and passive defenses must be complemented with an active defense mechanism which elevates the risks, or costs, a potential attacker will face. The effectiveness of an active defense mechanism, however, is ultimately limited by its ability to detect threats fast, accurately, and reliably. For this Phase II project, we ...

  4. Advanced Heavy Fuel Injection System for UAS/UGS Applications

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13PR1

    Mainstream Engineering will use state-of-the-art technology and manufacturing processes to develop an innovative, high speed, lightweight fuel injection system capable of providing multiple injections per engine cycle at engine speeds up to 6000 RPM. To overcome the barriers associated with spark ignition of direct-injected heavy fuel (JP5, JP8, etc.), Mainstream will leverage previous internal re ...

  5. Advanced Verification Toolset for Learning-Based UAS Operating in Uncertain Environments

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13HS2

    This effort proposes to develop a toolset to evaluate the effectiveness of a safety-controller that monitors a learning-based autonomous control system. The traditional use of deterministic verification techniques for real-time monitoring is not feasible in the presence of uncertainty. This effort would advance the recommended verification techniques to include non-deterministic approaches. The ...

  6. AWAKE: Adaptive Workspace for Analyst Knowledge & Engagement

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD12AU5

    There is an increasing need for fast and accurate analysis of large volumes of disparate data containing critical information. Existing tools for information search, retrieval, and exploitation are inadequate because the tools have limited ability to (1) help the analyst understand the semantics within the information, (2) reveal the relationships between the information and the analytic task, or ...

  8. Combined Approaches for Verification and Validation of Run Time Protected Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    Barron Associates has assembled a team of researchers that include Dr. Sayan Mitra of the University of Illinois and Dr. Ufuk Topcu of the University of Pennsylvania. They will spearhead three complimentary investigations into the development of verification and validation (V & V) approaches for adaptive systems protected by run time assurance (RTA) mechanisms. Two of these approaches involve us ...

  9. Decision Support for Anomaly Detection and Recovery for Unmanned System (ADRUS)

    SBC: Knexus Research Corp.            Topic: OSD12AU1

    Deployment of unmanned systems continues to expand across a wide range of missions; for example, logistics and resupply missions, force application and protection, and improving battlespace awareness. Presently these unmanned systems run at the lowest of four possible levels of autonomy, that is, in a teleoperated mode, and each system typically requires multiple operators. To address this proble ...

  10. Dynamic Time and Frequency Domain Modeling of Aircraft Power System with Electrical Accumulator Units (EAU)

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD12EP5

    The movement to more-electric architectures in airborne systems has drastically altered the dynamics of power flow in the EPS with the addition of numerous high-power electric loads and has increased the complexity of designing the electrical power system (EPS). Such high-power dynamic loads may cause undesirable system performance from both a dynamic-transient and a spectral-content (frequency-do ...
