  1. Materials Ontology Design and Development (MODD)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13C02

    Semantically Linked Data is widely seen as a revolutionary approach for maximizing the usefulness of existing and future information. In the materials domain, semantically linked materials data holds considerable promise with the ability to facilitate materials research and product development, improve communication, and open up avenues for new types of materials informatics. But realizing the pro ...

  2. Advanced Verification Toolset for Learning-Based UAS Operating in Uncertain Environments

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13HS2

    This effort proposes to develop a toolset to evaluate the effectiveness of a safety-controller that monitors a learning-based autonomous control system. The traditional use of deterministic verification techniques for real-time monitoring is not feasible in the presence of uncertainty. This effort would advance the recommended verification techniques to include non-deterministic approaches. The ...

  3. Combined Approaches for Verification and Validation of Run Time Protected Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    Barron Associates has assembled a team of researchers that include Dr. Sayan Mitra of the University of Illinois and Dr. Ufuk Topcu of the University of Pennsylvania. They will spearhead three complimentary investigations into the development of verification and validation (V & V) approaches for adaptive systems protected by run time assurance (RTA) mechanisms. Two of these approaches involve us ...

  4. Direct Injection Systems for Improved Performance, Durability, and Economy

    SBC: KINETIC BEI LLC            Topic: OSD13PR1

    Kinetic BEI, LLC. proposes a dual path approach to fulfilling the need for a direct injected heavy fuel delivery system for engines under 200 Hp. The primary focus will be to advance the Miniature CI Fuel Injection System, a system whose individual components have been demonstrated in on-engine testing in a laboratory environment. The new system will integrate the next generation Miniature CI In ...

  5. A Design Automation Tool for Integrated Nanophotonics based on Compact Modeling and Model Order Reduction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD13C05

    Existing physics-based device simulation tools are prohibitively expensive computationally, and therefore ill-suited for parametric analysis and design optimization of photonic integrated circuits (PIC). The proposed effort aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative, easy-to-use simulation tool for accurate, fast circuit/system analysis of PICs. The salient aspects of the proposed solution are: ...

  6. Work Tool Innovation for Farm Land Management and Wildfire Abatement

    SBC: HILL MANUFACTURING, INC.            Topic: 812

    For rural farmers and ranchers with small and mid-sized operations who suffer losses in efficiency due to unproductive pastures and damage and property loss due to wild fires, the envisioned tree saw is an auxiliary tractor attachment with the potential to rapidly and safely remove large trees, brush, and undergrowth. Unlike current heavy and expensive attachments that require non-traditional farm ...

  7. Innovative Removal of Agriculturally Related Pollutants from Surface Water Tributaries in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

    SBC: Micronic Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Large areas of the Chesapeake Bay watershed support intense agricultural operations includingcrop farming, large poultry production facilities (LPPFs), and confined animal feedingoperations (CAFOs). Increasingly, these agricultural operations add significant amounts ofpollutants, from water run off into the watersheds, and infiltrate the groundwater. For example,the Shenandoah Valley has suffered ...

  8. H2S and CH4 air quality monitor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and methane (CH4) are two of the major pollutants associated with animal waste and sewage. Their release to the atmosphere has consequences both locally, where H2S can be present at toxic levels that influence human health and quality of life, and globally, where CH4 acts as a greenhouse gas to influence climate change. Southwest Sciences proposes to develop a compact, inexp ...

  9. Mannheimia haemolytica outer membrane vesicle-based vaccine for Shipping Fever in cattle

    SBC: Solidtech Animal Health, Inc.            Topic: 83

    "Shipping Fever" is the main cause of illness/death in beef cattle in North America, resulting in & gt;$500 million/year of losses due to treatment costs, poor weight gain, reduced carcass value and death. Mannheimia haemolyticabacteria causes the most serious form of shipping fever, causing severe, often fatal pneumonia. Because currently availableM. haemolytica vaccines are not effective enough, ...

  10. Technology for Removal of Heavy Metals and Arsenic from Juice

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: 85

    The discovery that many fruit juices and brown rice syrup contain significant concentrations of arsenic or heavy metals such as lead and cadmium has raised concern amongst the public, government regulators, and food and juice producers. This contamination occurs both from natural and anthropogenic sources such as industrial pollution, arsenical herbicides and pesticides etc. While the levels of th ...
