  1. Robust Design of Chemical Gas Sensor Arrays (CGSA) Using the Maximum Likelihood Estimator and Cramer-Rao bound.

    SBC: N5 Sensors, Inc.            Topic: HSB0191004

    We will develop, demonstrate, and built a sensor array designed frommathematical models thatare based on the maximum likelihood estimator(MLE), the Cramer- Rao lower bound (CRB), and the density function theory(DFT). The MLE will be used to estimate the concentration of the gases inside a mixture by minimizing the error trough the Cramer-Rao bound.The DFT method will model thephysisorption and che ...

  5. SKYRAD:Autonomous UAS for Radiation Search and Mapping

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: HSB0191010

    Rapid, reliable, and accurate detection of radiation is critical in preparing for and responding to potential terrorist attacks with a radiological dispersal device (RDD) or "dirty bomb". Current detection methods using handheld or vehicle-borne detectors are inefficient, labor-intensive, and often limited to small screening areas. Deploying a small autonomous UAS carrying a radiation detector has ...
