  1. Formal Synthesis and Verification Techniques for Autonomous Cyber-Physical Systems

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: SIFT's Phase 2 Hy-CIRCA proposal builds on progress in Phase 1 to address the challenge of effectively, reliably, and safely tasking cooperating teams of autonomous cyber-physical systems (CPSs). SIFT's Playbook(tm) interface approach provides high-level, goal-based tasking for multi-agent autonomous missions. SIFT's Cooperative Intelligent Real-Time Control Architecture (CIRCA) automa ...

  2. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: VirtusAero LLC            Topic: AF161024

    For a vehicle in hypersonic flight, the natural transition of a boundary layer from laminar to turbulent flow depends on multiple factors including the free-stream conditions, the noise level and frequency spectrum of free-stream disturbances, the geometry of the vehicle and the vehicle surface properties.To predict boundary layer transition for flow over a given vehicle, one or more of these fact ...

  3. Simplified Aero Model Development and Validation Environment

    SBC: Corvid Innovation LLC            Topic: AF161042

    ABSTRACT: Shortcomings, including high costs and lack of realism, associated with classical approaches in aircrew training have motivated the desire to develop a virtual aerial refueling training environment.Such an environment has the potential to provide a cost-effective, realistic environment to perform repetition training.A vital facet of such a training tool is the development of a realistic ...

  4. GEMINI: Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161045

    ABSTRACT: SIFT proposes to build GEMINI (Gestalt Mixed-Initiative Intelligence), a shared workspace where humans and machines collaboratively assemble intelligence products. In a human-machine team, the collaborators have vastly different-- albeit complementary-- cognitive capabilities. Thus, a central research challenge is to expressively and soundly translate from analyst-centric interfaces (for ...

  5. SAVANT: Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF161063

    SIFT, working with research partner Dr. Richard Linares, proposes to develop SAVANT a Space Situational Awareness Visualization and Vulnerability Analysis Tool. SAVANT will rapidly assess the vulnerability of blue space assets to potential ground and space-based threats, and provide a heightened awareness of the mission impact posed by these threats so that space commanders may make timely decisio ...

  6. Multi-material AM

    SBC: Aura Technologies Llc            Topic: AF161093

    ABSTRACT: The Bennett Advanced Research Team proposes to create spacecraft structures embedded with wires and other sensors creating a multifunctional structure.; BENEFIT: By reducing the weight of space craft structures and/or increasing the area within a satellite, more space or weight is available for satellite payloads.

  7. Shape Extraction and Equivalent Key Recognition (SEEKER)

    SBC: ADVENTIUM ENTERPRISES, LLC            Topic: AF161139

    ABSTRACT: The proposed Shape Extraction and Equivalent KEy Recognition (SEEKER) program will perform Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) of small targets (e.g. vehicles) from airborne LIDAR point clouds using a new method of recognition based on topological techniques. Recent years have seen rapid progress in the data collection abilities of airborne surveillance plat- forms. Key challenges remain ...

  8. Tool for Assessing the Recuperation Time from an Electromagnetic Disruption for a Digital System

    SBC: VIGILANT CYBER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF151011

    The TAEMDR software tool provides users with an intuitive graphical interface by which they can model an arbitrarily complex system under test, design a test set, and then simulate electromagnetic effects on the system under test. The tool provides real-time visualization and data collection during the test and automatically stores test results, including operator actions on the system during the ...

  9. Connecting High-Power Jet Noise Characteristics with Human Annoyance

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF151021

    The proposed effort will correlate perceptual features and physical source characteristics of high-powered military jet noise with human loudness judgments and corresponding annoyance. Tactical military aircraft noise evokes significant community response because of its high amplitudes and unique features, such as shock content perceived as crackle and low-frequency rumble. During Phase II, candid ...

  10. Common Embedded Vehicle Network Diagnostics Interface Hardware

    SBC: NEW WAVE DESIGN & VERIFICATION, LLC            Topic: AF151060

    The objective of the Phase II SBIR project is to develop, integrate, and test production representative FPGA based 1394 network interface hardware. The developed hardware will be tested and demonstrated within current program avionics networks using actual aircraft equipment. This hardware will have integrated New Wave 1394 PHY and Link Layer FPGA cores. The outcome of this program will be FPGA ba ...
