  1. Methods for Signal Isolation Across Heterogeneous Document Sets

    SBC: Thresher Ventures, LLC            Topic: SB162003

    Text is a treasure trove of data for social, behavioral and economic researchers, for which the rapidly developing field of automated text analysis has produced numerous methods. However, the machine classifiers on which many of these methods depend degrade as data becomes noisier. Ad hoc approaches to reducing noisesuch as using analyst-generated keywords to collect documentscan introduce bias. D ...

  2. Secure Information Exchange Platform

    SBC: SynaptiCAD Sales, Inc.            Topic: SB162004

    SynaptiCAD proposes to create a secure information exchange platform based on an existing, proven blockchain codebase (bitshares). The blockchain, which already provides a completely secure method for exchanging cryptocurrencies, can be extended to any transactional or communications system. A feature in the current bitshares toolkit to write memos, to go with transactions, will be enhanced to pro ...

  3. Secure Messaging Platform (SMP) as a Service (SMPaaS)

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: SB162004

    We propose a system called Secure Messaging Platform as a Service (SMPaaS).It provides a distributed network capability for secure real-time communication and collaboration of documents. SMPaaS will track meta-data of message communication operations, showing who modified what in an unmodifiable blockchain ledger. Traditional methods are centralized, unencrypted, expensive, inefficient, brittle an ...

  4. Managing Emergent Behavior of Interacting Autonomous Systems

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: SB162005

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop biologically inspired meta-heuristic algorithms for decentralized management of the emergent behavior of interacting autonomous agents operating in dynamic and challenging environments with constraints on resources, and presence of competitors and adversaries. Based on the evolutionary game-theoretic framework, we propose to use the observations from experime ...

  5. Precision Soil Moisture Mapping Based on Fusion of SAR with Unconventional Data Sources

    SBC: OmniEarth Inc            Topic: SB162009

    OmniEarth, an emerging Earth observation and analytics company, proposes the creation of a precision (1-m spatial resolution, 6-cm depth) soil moisture mapping model based on the fusion of information from a number of sources, notably synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and multispectral imagery, to greatly enhance the militarys ability to assess, manage and predict soil conditions for tactical decisio ...

  8. Ultra-Low H2 Permeable, Tough 3D Filament Wound Cryotank

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: SB162014

    NanoSonic has developed a hydrogen (H2) dispenser hose to realize H2 as a safe, reliable, and cost competitive replacement for gasoline.This material exhibits ultra-low H2 permeance (0.31 cc/100in2Atmday) before and after being fully folded (180-degrees) three times under cryogenic conditioning (-50C).It is thus feasible as a leak-free cryotank for liquid oxygen (LOX), RP-1, and liquid methane con ...
