  1. A screening assay for chemicals that affect the differentiation of human neural cells.

    SBC: Nzumbe, Inc.            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Human brain development represents a highly vulnerable time to chemical exposures because immature cells are actively undergoing differentiation into more complex cell types e g neurons astrocytes oligodendroglia to form neural circuits A major reason for this vulnerability is that neuronal differentiation requires critical time dependent changes to the ...

  5. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  9. Correct-by-Construction Synthesis for Multi-Vehicle Autonomy Missions

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT06

    ABSTRACT: The kinds of capability advancements we anticipate include scalable support for multi-vehicle scenarios with concurrent executions, co-existence of adversarial and cooperative assets, timing and synchronization constraints, heterogeneous sets of specifications (e.g., prioritization over soft vs. hard constraints), and fault-tolerance. The tool development will focus on an open-source so ...

  10. Developing a Novel eHealth Application for Oral Systemic Issues during Pregnancy

    SBC: InterVision Media            Topic: NIDCR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Oral disease is a silent epidemic because of its prevalence and missed prevention opportunities. Evidence has established connections between oral-systemic etiologies, including the effects of periodontal disease (PD), and a range of health outcomes and co-morbidities across the lifecourse (e.g., adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes; early childhood carries; ...
