  1. Biofilm Restoration for Contaminated Army Sites

    SBC: CENTER FOR INNNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Many Unites States Army, and other Department of Defense (DoD) sites, are contaminated with a variety of contaminants including highly energetic compounds, such as 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), chlorinated aliphatics (such as trichloroethylene,TCE) and chlorinated aromatics. These compounds often persist in soil or groundwater for extended periods of t ...

  3. Advanced Robust Modulation (ARM)

    SBC: Dsplogic Inc            Topic: N04T031

    Naval communications environments, both undersea and through-the-air, are typically more demanding than most applications, offering many exciting challenges and creative opportunities for the communication system designer. Challenges in undersea acoustic, optical, and radio-frequency channels include dispersion, multipath, severe signal attenuation, noise, limited bandwidth, and many other detrim ...

  4. Information Centric Security STTR

    SBC: INFO-OPS / INFOASSURE, INC.            Topic: N03T008

    The need exists for a technology that creates an "information-centric" security architecture that augments the current "network-centric" security posture moving protection to what is really important, the INFORMATION. The purpose of this project is to: (1) develop a prototype that will achieve persistent role-based access control of an information object resident on a LAN within a protected env ...

  5. An Automated Acoustic System to Monitor and Classify Birds

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF02T009

    To minimize the number of birdstrikes, a common method uses microphone arrays to monitor and identify dangerous birds near the airport or critical locations in the airspace. However, it was recognized that the range of existing ground-based acoustic monitoring devices is limited to a few hundred meters. Moreover, the identification performance in low signal-to-noise environments such as airports i ...

  6. A Novel Non-Intrusive Approach to Detect Human Fatigue in Real-time

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF04T007

    Fatigue affects human performance. If we can capture the early signs of fatigue such as lack of concentration, yawning, changes in voice characteristics, etc., we will be able to evaluate individual job performance and plan optimal work schedules to optimize performance. Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI) and its subcontractor, Prof. Jianbo Shi and Prof. David Dinges of the University of ...

  7. Using Evolving Curves to Track Dynamic Boundaries

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: ARMY03T08

    In the phase I effort, IAI successfully demonstrated the feasibility of co-operative swarm based approach to boundary tracking. This approach is relevant to applications such as tracking oil spills using a swarm of robots, tracking enemy troop movement using a swarm of UAV's (Future Combat System (FCS) type scenario), and tracking of static and moving mine fields . In Phase II, we continue our ef ...

  9. A Novel Maximum Entropy Inference Engine for Data Fusion in Fault Diagnosis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N04T025

    Inferencing and reasoning algorithms are widely used in various applications where root causes need to be inferenced based on observed evidence. One typical application is fault diagnosis of complex systems based on symptoms reported by various diagnostic monitors. The symptoms may contain both continuous and discrete variables. Intelligent Automation, Inc. and Professor David J. Miller of Pen ...

  10. A Novel Speech Recognition Approach in Non-stationary and Chaotic Environment

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N04T012

    Existing speech recognition software such as IBM via Voice works well in quiet and stationary background noise environments. However, the recognition performance drops quite significantly in crowded and noisy control room, battle stations, emergency room, factory floor, etc. The main reason is that the noise is non-stationary and chaotic. In this proposal, Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) and ...
