  1. Unattended Node for Integrated Radiation Detection and Communication

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: SB0171009

    The technical objective of this effort is to design and build a set of Unattended Radiation Detection Systems to satisfy multiple end-users and environments. From the detector landscape survey and testing results achieved in Phase I, there are three suitable node configurations being proposed for further development. Each node spiral will consist of end-user interviews and operational testing to d ...

  2. Nautical Evaluation of Mammal Observations (NEMO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    To protect marine mammals from ship strikes and sonar exposure, human watchstanders maintain a tedious and costly visual lookout, which is impossible on unmanned vessels like Sea Hunter. Automated video search avoids human fatigue while detecting surfaced marine mammals, and automated acoustic search detects mammals below the surface, but both approaches have limitations: cameras are affected by o ...

  3. Applying Novel Materials and Fabrication Techniques to Thermionic Energy Conversion

    SBC: Spark Thermionics, Inc.            Topic: SB171004

    Spark proposes to develop a transformative heat-to-electricity conversion device based on thermionic energy conversion for portable power, unmanned systems and other military / commercial applications. Thermionic energy conversion has the potential to leapfrog competing solid-state conversion in efficiency and power density, but has been largely neglected for decades. The proposed research is a un ...

  5. Accelerated Low-power Motion Planning for Real-time Interactive Autonomy

    SBC: Realtime Robotics, Inc.            Topic: SB172009

    The inability to plan in real-time is a major reason why robot manufacturing is restricted to high-value, high-volume products, in carefully engineered factories where robots blindly repeat pre-programmed trajectories. Today, robots simply cannot generate collision-free motion on the fly. We are solving this core problemreal-time motion planning in unstructured, fluid environments and on diverse S ...

  6. Authentication Sensing System Using Resonance Evaluation Spectroscopy (ASSURES)

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: SB163005

    The goal of this Phase II program is to develop and deliver a non-destructive tool to assure trustworthiness of additive manufactured components to support the TRuST (TRusted Structures Technology) program. The method, ASSURES (Authentication Sensing System Using Resonance Evaluation Spectroscopy), combines laser Doppler vibrometry, acoustical resonance spectroscopy and finite element analysis to ...

  7. Adaptive Feature Oriented Recommender Engine (AFORE)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: SB171011

    This proposal for continued Phase II implementation, evaluation, and transition of the Adaptive Feature Oriented Recommendation Engine (AFORE). Social media is an increasingly important source of time-critical information for a range of problems including monitoring information operations carried out by adversaries, analyzing terrorist propaganda, and obtaining situational awareness in post-disast ...

  10. Secure Messaging Platform: DEcentralized BLOckchains Overm MPC (DEBLOOM)

    SBC: Stealth Software Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB162004

    We propose to continue developing the DeBLOOM blockchain platform for securely storing and analyzing messages and transaction data. Our platform will demonstrate many features fundamental to blockchains, but deviate from the basic blockchain construct in several important ways: First, we will utilize a novel consensus protocol (developed in Phase I) for validating new transactions, which is vastly ...
