  1. TeraNet – A Wideband Terahertz Communication Network

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF19BT008

    Terahertz communication is anticipated to provide ultra-high capacity links up to 1Tbps. Thus, Terahertz communication is promising to support wide varieties of emerging high throughput and low latency applications, including military applications. However, the Terahertz channel suffers from severe path loss and is highly sensitive to obstacles. Hence, novel solutions should be designed to account ...

  2. Machine Learning based Domain Adaptation (MLB-DA) for Multiple Source Classification and Fusion


    Generalizing models learned on one domain to novel domains has been a major obstacle in the quest for universe object recognition. The performance of the learned models degrades significantly when testing on novel domains due to the presence of domain shift. In this proposal, we aim to develop a deep learning-based multi-source self-correcting approach to fuse data with different modalities at the ...

  4. Deep Transfer Learning Across Domains, Modalities and Classes


    The capability of “transferring” learned classifiers from one domain, or set of targets, to classify different targets or the same targets but in different domains is of great interest to the United States Air Force. It is an enabling technology for the USAF to build Aided Target Recognition and other algorithms for environments and targets where the data or labeled data is scarce. In ...

  5. Dynamic Bias APD Receiver Array

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF19CT006

    Alphacore team will design, develop and demonstrate an innovative avalanche photodiode (APD) focal plane array (FPA) that employs dynamic biasing to increase low-noise gain and detectivity. Alphacore partners are internationally recognized experts - Prof. Joe Campbell (University of Virginia) and consultant Prof. Seth Bank (University of Austin at Texas) - known for pioneering contributions to hig ...

  6. PARSERS: Privacy-preserving Analytics for Recognizing the Signs of an Elevated Risk for Suicide

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF19CT007

    Risk of suicide continues to threaten both individual wellness and overall Air Force personnel readiness. The active-duty suicide rate increased 13% in 2018, while the suicide rate for veterans was 31 per 100,000 – 1.5 times greater than among nonveteran groups. Predictive analytics approaches using sensitive Electronic Health Records (EHRs) or social media data have shown promising accurac ...

  8. SmartWavAudit: smart technologies for electrical waveform auditing

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: AF19CT009

    Reliability of power generators, distribution systems and motors are essential in ensuring the efficient and reliable operation of industrial manufacturing systems. However, different types of machine health threats (fault or attack) may occur. There may be direct or inderict attacks and different types of short circuit faults for the electric devices such as single phase faults, phase to phase fa ...

  9. Automated Tourniquet

    SBC: OLGS, Inc.            Topic: AF19CT010

    OLGS is developing an automated tourniquet system. It is an intuitive device that works with the push of a button. The user only need to know 'high-and-tight' and push the button for the tourniquet to be effective. It contains a band with wires embedded that is tightened by a motor-driven spool. It also contains a micro-controller unit with integrated sensors to ensure limb occlusion pressure is a ...

  10. Rapid Wafering of Wide Bandgap Substrates

    SBC: OPTICOMP NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: AF19CT010

    OptiCOMP has a non-abrasive wafering technique that will reduce the cost of manufacturing wide bandgap semiconductor substrates, i.e. silicon carbide (SiC), gallium nitride (GaN), AlN and diamond by up to a factor of 2. These materials are very expensive and hard. A top of the line wafer can cost a few thousand dollars. Currently wafers are cut using wire saws. These are heavy and bulky machines t ...
