  2. MAPTECH: Monitoring And Prediction of Turbine Engine Component Health

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF171052

    Inspection of turbine engine components is an essential part of standard maintenance procedures to ensure the long-term health of aircraft engines. Existing techniques are time-consuming and labor-intensive because they require point-by-point scanning and/or extensive data processing. As a result, these inspections are not cost-effective to conduct, despite being a critical part of long-term susta ...

  4. Comprehensive and Orthogonal Vulnerability and Resiliency Analysis (COVRA) Framework for Embedded Communication System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF171077

    Military satellite communications (MILSATCOM) systems are critical elements in DoDs vision for a Global Information Grid Bandwidth Extension (GIG-BE). Modeled after the commercial Internet, the GIG will provide global connectivity to support a broad range of military user applications. Commercial networking technologies, coupled with military-unique radio communications equipment, enable the GIG t ...

  7. HASLOC: Hierarchical And-Or Structures for Localization and Object Recognition

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT014

    Target detection and recognition is a challenging problem because of changes in appearance, viewing direction, occlusion and other covariates. Systems that can accurately and efficiently detect and track objects can provide several benefits in surveillance, monitoring and other applications. As part of this effort, we propose to develop a robust learning-based approach to detect, track and recogni ...

  10. An Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based System for Advanced Freeway Data Collection and Analysis

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 18FH4

    Planned or unplanned traffic events, such as work zones, collision accidents, sporting games and stormy/snowy weather, arise along our roadway systems and affect normal traffic operations. These anomaly events cause various magnitude of traffic congestion and safety impact to road users. Thus, local or regional Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have spent tremendous amount of resources responding ...
