  1. Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-Cost Raw Material

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. ViA-ML: A Machine Learning backed Visualization Assistant

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: OSD13LD1

    With the proliferation of cheap sensors, reduction in storage costs and the ubiquity of communication networks, Cyber-Physical Systems are collecting and storing data at an unprecedented rate. Analysis of such large databases is necessary to find relevant information and improve the efficiency of the Cyber Physical System. The goal of an analysis tool, simply put is to find the most interesting in ...
