  1. Contextual Anomaly Management Interface (CAMI) for Autonomous Systems

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING GROUP            Topic: OSD12AU1

    To deal with the increasingly complex, dynamic and unpredictable operational environments of the 21st century, unmanned and autonomous system, sensor, and vehicle technologies are being expanded and improved. For example, unmanned air, ground, and maritime systems provide an expanding set of capabilities, such as intelligence, detection, security, targeting, and strike, while reducing the risk to ...

  3. Advanced Robot Training Interface

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD13HS1

    It is not likely that an autonomous system can be programmed with all the information it requires to perform every mission or every variation of every contingency within the near future. One way to address this issue is to provide user-friendly means to teach or program a robot to add to its autonomous capability. This proposal focuses on the physical aspects of the robot performance, manipulat ...

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

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13PR1

    This effort is to develop a fast responding, light weight, direct injection system to operate within the fuels ignition delay time for UAS/UGS application. These systems must be applicable to engines that are 200 HP or less, either reciprocating or rotary. A technical challenge associated with the conversion of gasoline engines to heavy fuel (JP-8) is the avoidance of knock. An approach used to ...

  5. Autonomy Safety Testing Environment

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD141AU4

    Recent advancements in sensor simulation tools [2] have improved our ability to model radar, lidar, camera, and GPS with software/hardware in the loop. Of course, our ability to model the physics of heavy trucks [3] is quite mature as well. To address the challenge of developing the STE, we will provide our autonomy algorithms as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE). The focus of this topic ...

  6. Human/Autonomous-System Interaction and Collaboration

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING GROUP            Topic: OSD13HS5

    Human-autonomous system interaction is frequently limited by lack of confidence and trust among the (combined) team. In order to have humans collaborate effectively with autonomous systems, improved interfaces and interaction techniques, and frameworks of interaction must be developed that allow for a common perception of the goals, constraints, resources, and other variables relevant to the team ...

  7. Knowledge-aided Interface for Big Data Streams

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD13LD2

    Big data challenges across Department of Defense (DOD) domains are increasingly problematic for tactical level decision making. Data collections in the open source and military channels are growing at such a staggering rate that it exceeds our ability to store and manage, perform computation and analysis, and maintain data security [1, 2]. Indeed, one author refers to the inability to handle big ...

  8. High Efficiency Electric Power Manager for Man-Portable Photovoltaic Systems

    SBC: APECOR CORP            Topic: OSD13EP2

    Renewable energy, specifically photovoltaic, is an attractive technology for man-portable power sources and tactical applications. However, to be effective as a system, it is necessary to have a power manager that can efficiently couple a small solar array (~20W) to a battery such as the BB2590. Power managers are already being fielded with PV sources, but their usefulness has been limited by the ...

  9. SONICSensor Operations via Naturalistic Interactive Control

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD12HS2

    As analysts and operators move from data to insights, tools are needed for supervisory control, command and control, and intelligence analysis. Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) requires the ability to navigate and interpret mounds of data to produce actionable decisions. Through the Urban Telepresence program, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is redefining a concept of ...

  10. Materials Ontology Design and Development (MODD)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13C02

    Semantically Linked Data is widely seen as a revolutionary approach for maximizing the usefulness of existing and future information. In the materials domain, semantically linked materials data holds considerable promise with the ability to facilitate materials research and product development, improve communication, and open up avenues for new types of materials informatics. But realizing the pro ...
