  6. Development of Structure Based Potential for Protein Mapping

    SBC: ACPHARIS            Topic: 100

    The binding sites of proteins include smaller regions called hot spots that are major contributors to the binding free energy and hence are crucial to binding any ligand at that site Hot spots can be determined by screening libraries of fragment sized organic molecules for binding to the target protein by X ray crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance NMR The computational mapping algori ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. BATTLE: Battlefield Airmen Training Technologies for LVC, ground-based Environments

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT011

    Effective Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) training methods have been underutilized within ground-based training operations. More specifically, Battlefield Airmen training methods have not fully adopted or incorporated recent advances in augmented reality (AR) technologies into their training due to specialized training requirements. To address this issue, the Aptima team will design and deve ...
