  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. Theory-Driven Protocols for Replacing Elemental Composition of Strategic Materials

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: OSD12T05

    In this STTR program, QuesTek Innovations LLC, a leader in ICME (Integrated Computational Materials Engineering), will partner with Professor Chris Wolverton from Northwestern University to develop a theory-driven compound discovery methodology. Our unique approach will involve high throughput DFT and data mining based approaches to both materials system screening and crystal structure prediction. ...

  7. First-principles-based framework for discovery and design of sustainable non-rare-earth high-temperature alloy systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T06

    The aim of this STTR program is to develop protocols to discover rare-earth-free/rare-earth-lean magnetic alloys for replacing rare earth (RE) -based alloys for reducing the dependence of supply from China. The development of non-RE high temperature magnetic materials is very challenging. In Phase I, CFDRC in collaboration with its university partner has demonstrated a proof-of-concept computation ...

  8. Preventing Program Hijacking via Static and Dynamic Analyses

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA5

    To hijack the execution of a program, an attacker must overwrite the value of a return address or a function pointer (broadly defined). To prevent program hijacking, our product will provide a layered defense of these two targets, including deterministic and randomization defenses, with the ability in many cases to continue execution after a hijacking attempt is prevented. Our product toolkit incl ...

  9. Event Attribute Recognition and Labeling (EARL)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12LD5

    Existing information extraction technology can only partially address the problem of exploiting unreadably-large amounts text. When discussion of events is limited to simple, past-tense, factual descriptions of events, current NLP-based systems can ident

  10. Active Software Defense to Reduce Threat Capability Effectiveness

    SBC: Power Fingerprinting, Inc            Topic: OSD11IA6

    In order to better protect critical infrastructure from cyber attacks, perimeter and passive defenses must be complemented with an active defense mechanism which elevates the risks, or costs, a potential attacker will face. The effectiveness of an active defense mechanism, however, is ultimately limited by its ability to detect threats fast, accurately, and reliably. For this Phase II project, we ...
